Around the Pond With the Frog~Weeks Ending 9/8/13

Welp, school is in full swing, and I seriously feel like I still don't have enough time to do all the things I want to do. Maybe my to-do list is too extensive. Hubby told me once that I should only have one thing on my list; that way, if I only get one thing done a day, it's a success! Wise man.

Of course, this keeps happening at my house:

 
 
Sigh.
 
Oh well, here's where I've been and what I've said in case you've missed it:
 
 
 
  • I talked about the divisive nature of motherhood. People agreed - can't we all just get along?
  • I was on Her View From Home sharing the new mantra I'm trying out with my family.
  • The third in my grief series was a moving piece about adoption loss by Kelly from My Twice Baked Potato.
  • I shared a cute little piece about my two year old and what I adore about him.
  • My letter to Lil' C on the first day of kindergarten was picked up by Huffington Post. If you didn't read it, you can find it here.
  • And if you're lamenting the passing of lazy days at the swimming pool, you can read my take on it here on Mamalode.
Some stuff I loved from my bloggy friends:
  • This hilarious take on trying to avoid shopping with kids in tow by Paige at There's More Where That Came From (Do you have her book yet?).
  •  This post by Tara at You Know It Happens at Your House Too. She tells her kids what we're all thinking.
  • Many of your shared a post by "Mrs. Hall" to her sons' girlfriends. I didn't really agree with her post. Neither did Jen of People I Want to Punch in the Throat.
  • This list of reasons NOT to clean out your mini-van by Ellen and Erin of Sisterhood of the Sensible Moms.
 Up in the top right corner of my blog you will see a book cover and the words "coming soon." I'm so happy to announce that I am contributing a chapter in a book by grieving moms for grieving moms. It is called Sunshine After the Storm: A Survival Guide for the Grieving Mother, expected out next month. Please like the Facebook page for more information and to see a list of the contributing bloggers.
 
Lastly, remember when I asked you a while back to help out a fellow blogger whose husband had died from a brief battle with cancer? Her fundraiser is almost over - only a few days left. If you can find it in your heart to give even $1, I'm sure you will be repaid at some point. Thank you, friends.
