Life File: Friday Links and Reads

Happy Friday! Today I got the luxury of not waking up to my alarm, yay for PD days!!! (professional development, meaning no school for Matthew). The only tricky part is the life/work balancing act. Doable, just less efficient work wise. Anyway, I’m getting a sore throat and I hope it stays at just that. I rarely get sick, but there’s something going around and it seems that no one has been able to escape it (Matthew, my brother, my sister-in-law and two nephews have been sick in the last week) Eek! Wish me luck!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Below, some reads and shopping links 😉

. My humble opinion on this whole controversy: Big issues aside, a part of the problem is that we still don’t think of ourselves as equals; the moment we do so and the moment we stop categorizing or identifying ourselves as “this” or “that” is the moment we will start to see the light 😉
