The federal bankruptcy case involving the Garden Oaks Maintenance Organization (GOMO) took a small step toward resolution Tuesday, but remains far from settled.

It’s not a decision to make flippantly and I applaud you for pausing to do some thinking on the topic before diving in. Here are a few things to consider: Getting the kids on board Kids are usually the first ones in the family to warm … [Read more...] about Planning to Add a Pet to Your Home in 2019?
