First Links of 2012 including My Top Ten Books of All Time (as of right now)


Everything I know about God I learned  in my laundry pile, posted by Elizabeth Ester, is so spot on I can't keep it to myself. This is how she starts…
The first lesson you learn in motherhood is that when you create a human, you also spend a lot of time cleaning up after it. Which, if you think about it, is pretty much what God has been doing since the day He created humans. Cleaning up after us, I mean.

 

I do quite a bit of figuring out flights. Often I am trying to figure out the best routing, timing, and/or who we could get miles on that actually helps our current mile situation. I have a website I have been using for years, but the URL is ridiculous so I am always having to find find the link and go from there. (I just realized I should have turned this into an itty bitty url years ago, but now I have this…) This week I came across a new website with an easy to remember URL. http://www.hipmunk.com/ This site does virtually the same thing as my previous 'go-to', but with visual bar graphs for flight times and an option to list searches by 'agony'. Give it a try!

 

Katherine Sokolowski was the author on The Nerdy Book Club with a post entitled "My Top Ten Most Important Books". As I told her, I am a sucker for a Top Ten list and an even bigger sucker for books. I immediately opened my notebook and jotted down my list…
