fresh friday five

Friday, May 11, 2012

1) Last week, someone found this blog by searching for the phrase “planning my death”. I’m not quite sure what to think about that.

2) Need a last minute Mother’s Day present? Try Mother Letters – sharing the mess and the glory. It comes in Kindle, Nook, and ebook editions. It is just simply beautiful – the perfect last minute gift for someone you love (or for yourself. It’s very reasonably priced at just $6.99; you can click the link above or the button to the side to purchase. 


3) Last night, I went to see This American Life live in the theater as a birthday present from my sister. It was everything I hoped it would be. Exactly true to the radio show, but better because there was live music and dancing. And Peter Sedaris and Mike Birbiglia. And Ira Glass. Does much more need to be said? I loved it immensely; it is definitely my favorite birthday activity this year!

4) Today, there are 1076 children 16 years old and up on the national photo listing site for kids in US foster care. The thing about it is, kids that old have to choose to be listed. They don’t have to be adopted; they can just age out of the foster care system if they wish. So let me repeat, 1076 older teenagers who WANT A FAMILY. 18 year old adults, who are still children, who are putting their pictures and descriptions on a public website to try and find a family to belong to. My heart breaks.

5) I think our sweet Baby D is actually going to let those first teeth poke through this week. They are right on the edge.

And that’s five.
