Usually, we can find friends to help out with the cat while we are out of town, but everyone was weirdly traveling or busy last summer. The cat sitter I found also cleans houses, so I ponied up for cat care + house cleaning. It was so wonderful to come home to sparkling tile and no dust bunnies.

A ball cap makes things much easier for me. Pull it down as low as possible to block out the light. A guess a mask would work as well. Recline the seat (damn straight - they built it for a reason) cross the arms across the lap and its pretty simple for me. Bonus points if you can lean against the window with a… Read more
Oh to be young again and be able to sleep in the same position as the kid pictured on the right. If I fell asleep like that and tried to get up, someone would have to dial 911.
