after a fun afternoon
and wonderful evening
spent visiting and playing
grandies are tired and tucked in
when suddenly the tears come
missing mom and dad
a story, Kleenex, hugs, a visit from the cat, and a goodnight call to mom
everyone settles in for the night
does it get any better than that?

If your summer plans already include laying in bed all day, you may be the perfect fit for the Mattress Firm’s new job opening. The company is looking for a “snoozetern” to test mattresses at their Houston, Texas headquarters by sleeping in them.
The Mattress Firm’s intern will be paid to spend 30 hours a week lounging in bed this summer. Job duties include assessing “the optimal head and foot positions” for reading, eating, binge-watching, and of course, sleeping in bed. When they’re awake, the snoozetern will also be responsible for creating written and video content for Mattress Firm’s website and social media platforms.
The ideal candidate is 18 or older, has housing and transportation access in the Houston area, knows how to use video editing software, and is “passionate about sleep and comfort.” Mattress Firm will select three to five finalists out of the applicants to create a short video pitching themselves, and from those candidates one will be picked for the job.
To apply, head to Mattress Firm’s website and submit your resume and relevant information. But you’d better hurry: Applications are due May 3, and the intern will be selected by the middle of May.
“every morning is a battle between the superego and the id,
and i am a mere foot soldier with mud and a snooze button on her shield.”

friends take a break from recess
in the empty water table
while still waiting for some snow.
recess can be so exhausting.
“you never get tired unless you stop and take time for it.”
’twas new year’s eve at the lake house
and two of our
fellow celebratory foot soldiers
and their loyal dog were down
though they made a miraculous comeback
returning to the fray for the midnight hour
and it was something to behold.
“forgive me if I sleep until I wake up. “
(photo not me, but how i was feeling)
that annoying moment when you can’t find the long side of your blanket.
