Meet Pixel: Pug Princess

Things have been quiet around here on TrishaLyn.com, I know.  I’ve had a lot going on in my life that’s pulled me away from this blog.  I shared with you losing Lunchbox, and my mother’s plight.  There’s more to that later story, but I won’t go into it now.  For now, I want you to meet one of the reasons I’ve had little blogging time this summer – our new dog, Pixel!

The Hill You Choose to Die On

I’m frequently baffled by the hill some people choose to die on, so to speak. I submit, for your disapproval, the lady in front of me at Walmart.

Clearly, something at home is amiss.
