1. The Kroger on 8th did not have my beloved Cranberry Almond Crunch. If Kellogg’s has discontinued that cereal, I will be distraught.
2. I have been finding a circle of dried spit on my forearm on occasion. I thought I was just drooling on myself in my sleep. I woke up this morning to find that I was sucking on it! How gross is that? But at least I’m not sucking my thumb again. That would be really embarrassing.
3. Sarah Moore is mulling over a return to orphanages and group homes for kids instead of the foster care system. While I agree with Moore that our foster care system leaves much to be desired, I have but four words for her that should send chills through her conservative veins: state-run nursing homes.
Our track record as a nation when it comes to packing people into warehouses in order to receive care we feel they’re not being provided by their families is pretty abysmal, to put it mildly. It’s not just nursing homes, but we’ve had orphanages and "boarding schools" before and we failed pretty miserably to do right by the kids in those.
