A Case of the Mondays | 3.5.12
Step right up. It’s time to digest the week that was as we launch out into the unknown. It’s time for A Case of the Mondays…
1. My mother is a rare creature. She was born on the 29th of February. That’s right. She was a Leap Year Baby- the unicorns of babies. This past week she turned 14, unofficially making me 16 years older than the woman who birthed me. Bizarre.
2. Oreos are rare creatures. They were born on March 6, 1912. That’s right. They turn 100 tomorrow. Join me in celebrating the Michael Jordan of cookies. If you really want to take your love for Oreos to the next level, check out its 100th birthday website.
3. In December of 2009, I asked my family and friends to give to my charity: water campaign in lieu of buying me a Christmas present and in support of a marathon I was running. Last week, I received an email informing me that Ethiopian village of Adibeaynom now has a brand new fresh-water well because of the the $2547 you helped me raise. They even sent GPS coordinates and pictures of the new well (click on the images below for larger versions). This organization does amazing work in the name of clean water, in the name of Jesus.
4. One day, I will build this bedroom for my boys…or for me. Incredible.
If you could go back in time and custom design the bedroom you grew up in, what would be in it?
