I’m a week late, but here’s the group of outfits I wore in March. In March I learned that I desperately need new jeans, so that is currently being handled.

I also missed about a week’s worth of photos last month. It was a busy time; Hannah’s second birthday (which was really wonderful), finishing up the four-month-long web design course I took, and working on some very cool new professional adventures for myself. Those adventures include a complete overhaul of this site, which is currently in the works. And I’m really thrilled about it; this blog’s last facelift was four years ago. And this won’t just be a facelift; this site will look 100% different. I’m really hoping to have the new site up by the end of April. Fingers crossed!

Today I was bawling over the Houla massacre in Syria. Absolutely bawling while I read about cowardly ax murders, shootings, and stabbings of women, children, and infants. That’s the word I kept seeing in my mind over and over again, “infants.” And I couldn’t look at Hannah without getting hysterical, and I was Googling for the nearest protest I could go and join, and it was time for a dose of joy. So I went straight to bawling over pure awesome like this post on Boing Boing (thanks for the link, LAM). The internet is the great perspective leveler.

This is the best thing ever. A student editing project using The Great Muppet Caper and Ocean’s Eleven. Just for fun.

I follow @NathanFillion on Twitter, and yesterday he posted Team Unicorn’s A Very Zombie Holiday video. This turned me on to their very cool YouTube channel, just debuted last fall. And I found Super Harmony. Team Unicorn is my new favorite thing on the internet.

I’m reading the first book in The 39 Clues series, The Maze of Bones by Rick Riordan, with my 4th grade classes this year. We’re using it as a tool to learn research and library skills as we go. I filmed this video at the Franklin Institute in December, and this week we’re finally to the Franklin Institute part of the book. Can’t wait to show it to them. Thanks to Adam as always for being my cameraman.

Adam marathoned like a champ. And has now been asleep for most of the day.

Kathy grabbed this screen shot of us when I joined in from 1-3pm for Guitar Hero and Lego Rock Band. My throat is still sore from all that singing!

I am so, so proud of Adam. Last year he raised about $900 for his 24 hour video game marathon for Extra Life. This year he has raised $1219 as of 8:15 this morning. And it’s not too late to donate! Although all the game slots are full.

It’s that time of year again.

Adam will be doing his 24 Games in 24 Hours video game marathon on October 16th. Last year he raised nearly $1000 for Texas Children’s Hospital, and I’m so excited because this year Extra Life has partnered with Children’s Miracle Network. And you can designate the CMN hospital that gets your raised money, so Adam’s donating to the Bristol-Myers Squibb Children’s Hospital in New Brunswick, NJ.

I recorded just the first 5 minutes of  Wil Wheaton’s speech at PAX East in Boston last weekend. He gave a great speech, even if I only understood a handful of the references. He really inspired the crowd.
