I feel like the linkage is a little sparse this week, folks. Between work and that little distraction we had on Monday, I’ve just about been keeping up – so it won’t take you quite as long to catch up on the randomness here :-).
And just in case you were wondering – my pinky finger is almost recovered, and most of our aches and sore spots are about gone, but a few bruises linger. In related news, we have started car shopping.
Wheels on the Bus (Emily has just joined the Los Angeles Moms Blog roster)
Some homecomings make you want to head right back out on another vacation
Does your will need a Social Media Executor Clause?

Bookworms Carnival #23, “Books to Movies,” is now posted at The Bluestocking Society. In addition to links to posts about books into movies, movies into books, books about movies, etc., Jessica poses a question: Do you prefer to read the book first or see the movie first? (My short answer: I’m not a stickler either way. My longer answer will be posted here some time next week.) Check out the Carnival, and while you’re there, find out the themes and submission info for the next few events!
