    A couple of months before we got married, The Hubs got a call from an old friend. As they were catching up, he mentioned he was engaged and I heard, “Yup, it’s true man, I’m getting married. When? September 2nd.”

     It was just another typical morning at apleasanthouse:     – 6am phone call from telemarketer      – answering machine put to good use     – eyes closing     – cat puking, very close by     – eyes open, ‘clean up on pillow 3’     – back to sleep     – leaf debris being blown against […]
