My FAVORITE THINGS this week are these wi-fi earbuds. In case you have ever needed wi-fi earbuds and simply couldn’t abdomen the worth, these are actually superior.

I attempted some fancy ones a few years in the past at 8-10x that worth and returned them as a result of I simply wasn’t impressed. These? I’d nonetheless be bought on them at a a lot increased worth. I’ve used mine for 12+ hours this week and my center son has just about had his in his ears since Christmas.

What I’m WATCHING: Three Males and a Child <- go forward and insert ALL the laughter right here.

We laughed so onerous (most likely half of the children’ laughter was on the 80s trend and different associated selections – ha) and all of us determined we’d like extra of this silliness in our lives.

What I’m READING: Earlier than and After: The Unbelievable Actual-Life Tales of Orphans Who Survived the Tennessee Youngsters’s House Society by Judy Christie and Lisa Wingate. From the Twenties to 1950, Georgia Tann ran a black-market child enterprise on the Tennessee Youngsters’s House Society in Memphis. She supplied up greater than 5,000 orphans tailor-made to the want lists of keen dad and mom—hiding the truth that many weren’t orphans in any respect, however stolen little kids of poor households. This e book shares the true life tales of the adoptees (now of their 70s, 80s, or 90s) and the way they realized of their historical past and what number of of them have been reunited with household and met one another at a reunion in Memphis in 2019.

I misplaced depend of the variety of emails I obtained in regards to the above e book after I shared a couple of years in the past that I’d learn Earlier than We Have been Yours. I used to be hooked on Earlier than We Have been Yours from the very first chapter. At one level, I really set it down and googled the unique story. I’d by no means heard about any of it earlier than selecting up the e book. It’s a fictionalized storytelling of the infamous real-life scandal by which a Memphis-based adoption group kidnapped and bought poor youngsters to rich households everywhere in the nation. Should you haven’t learn the primary e book, I extremely suggest it!
