Ha! I start off examining customers’ comments and then I stop at a review where someone is telling a harrowing story about exactly what happened the night they brought their new mattress home. Sagging! Sides collapsing! Back pain! Co-sleepers sniping at each other in the morning! ...more
...and isn't that what we really want? Weather warm enough to garden in?
Hi! I'm Jenny! I think I live in one of the nicest parts of the US right now. I spent the last few days on my daily blog writing about peonies and salvias and roses and got quite a few protests from people protesting my cruelty.
