The Friday Gathering for 11/30/2007
I can’t believe it’s the end of November and Christmas time is soon upon us. We haven’t even put out our Christmas decorations or started our shopping yet!
You may have noticed, but my posting schedule was a little off this week, including this one (it’s a little later than usual). As I posted about in my Friday Gathering from last week, my wife was unfortunate enough to get a kidney stone last week and the process of getting that taken care of was highly taxing on both of us. She ended up requiring two surgeries and was in a tremendous amount of pain most of the week. The good news is, she almost back to normal and feeling significantly better. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers for her recovery.
I did get some reading done this week though, and here are my favorite posts from my RSS reader list this week. Hope you have a great weekend…we’re going to catch up on lots of missed sleep!
