I think I told you that June is squirrelly. Like, squirrelly squirrelly with all the nuts and such. Things just got real so I may be in and out a bit but because I love you and because I have a pressing need to share I’ll be sending some good reads your way.

Here’s something you should know about me: I only ever reblog things I appreciated reading myself. Because why on earth would I send you to some post I only made it partway through before wondering how I could get that 20 minutes of my life back? You’re right. I wouldn’t. So I promise – super duper pinky promise – they’re worth your time. Just trust me.

Now some of you smartypants are probably muttering, “I don’t know, Laura, I’m looking down there and you’ve linked some post about putting your pet to sleep, for heaven’s sake!” I know. It’s an interesting choice for my first sorry-I-can’t-get-to-the-phone entry but I’m nothing if not interesting (if I do say so myself).

Today, I am giving you permission to put your pet to sleep.

Putting Your Pet to Sleep: Damn, Girl. Get Your Shit Together.
