I’ve been a bit busy this week. And by “busy” I mean “the same as every week but I’d like to use it as an excuse for the following photograph.”
Of course, I can’t just blame my kids.
I stopped taking photos at this point because I think your imagination will go easier on me.
When I’m not avoiding housework like the plague, I’m getting more popular by reading and writing elsewhere.
My Other Hangouts (don’t tell my blog):
- My Kids Want To Celebrate Memorial Day: On Richmondmom, I ask how to explain the “memorial” in Memorial Day to my kids and decide how to celebrate it with reverence and joy.
- Four Seasons For Charlotte: An Introspective Book Giveaway Because The Topic Is Childhood Cancer: On This Blogger Makes Fun of Stuff, I reviewed and am giving away an autograph copy of Rachel Reynold’s memoir of her family’s year coping with her preschool-age daughter’s brain cancer.
Favorite posts I didn’t read, I mean, write:
- YSaC, Vol. 1251: It’s a hatchet job.: From You Suck at Craigslist, an actual Craigslist ad titled: Stitches tonight – need a wound closed. Seriously. (funny and weird)
- Did GM Pop the Facebook Bubble?: From BlogHer, General Motors announces it’s pulling all $10 million in Facebook advertising because the company didn’t see an increase in sales. (interesting)
- Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) study: From the CDC, an amazing study shows that children who suffer from chronic trauma and stress (abuse, neglect, and family dysfunction) die 20 years before their counterparts among other terrible consequences. The study holds for social and economic situations. (amazing)
- Crushing Stigmas, Smashing Stereotypes, Remembering with Courage: From Aaron Polson, a husband shares his wife’s experience with postpartum depression and psychosis and her subsequent suicide. (important and brave)
