Convergence. That is the word that comes to mind. Too many events, too many holidays, not to mention my 39th birthday. Every time I look in the mirror I am shocked that I don’t see some 20 year-old looking back at me.
A couple more notes before we get into the meat of the carnival. If you are in need of an idea for a Mother’s Day Gift I have a few ideas.
1) Purchase one of the albums listed here.
2) If your mother is like this woman you might buy her an Emily Post book.
3) One of the inventions in this post might be right for your mom.
4) More stuff you just can(not) live without.
That should do it for now. If I come up with anything else I’ll let you know. Be sure to check back throughout the day as I will continue to update this.
Also, it would be greatly appreciated if you could help promote HH by mentioning it on your blogs. And now on to the show:
