Um, WHEN did it get to be the end of March? I mean, really? I feel like this year is just speeding by, and I’m left wondering when the train even left the station, much less went so far.
Anyway, enough of that. It’s time for another edition of Reads From Around the Web, where I share some of the things I’ve read and liked in the past (few) weeks. I’ll get to that in a minute, but before I do, I’ve got one little favor to ask of you. I like doing these posts, but I’ve been wondering if YOU guys enjoy it as much. So I’ve got a very simple little poll that I’d love to have you answer (if you’re reading in a reader, you’ll have to click through. Pretty please, just this once?). Go on, it’s a simple little thing!
Now that that’s over, let’s get on with the links, shall we?
Over at Kitten A Go-Go, Danielle shares a post that made me smile: How to Treat Others – Lessons Learned in Joplin. I’m thinking of making these into house rules as Jackson gets older, that’s how much I love them.
Over at The Heir to Blair, Beth Ann gives us How Working From Home With A Toddler Is Like Surviving A Zombie Apocalypse (which, seriously, isn’t that title alone worth clicking?).
Over at Musings of a Madwoman, Erin wrote Solicit this. I find myself reacting the exact same way to door to door solicitors, but mostly, I just kind of loved how this was written.
Over at the underwear drawer, Michelle gives us one of the most interesting and informative reads I’ve come across with death or something like it. It’s a response to a Wall Street Journal article that addresses some “problems” with organ donation. Michelle is an anesthesiologist who (rightfully, I believe) takes great issue with some of the misinformation that is set forth in the WSJ article. If you’re listed as an organ donor, or have been considering it, or just want to know what happens, this is a great post to read.
Over at crib chronicles, Bonnie gives us bodies at rest, or why i keep on keeping on. Yes, a post about blogging, but really, one that mirrors a lot of why *I* blog. I want blogs like crib chronicles to stick around because what I love about blogging THE MOST is hearing that piece of a person that needs to come out, that needs its own space. That personal aspect that gives us something to connect to.
