№ 1. Sister: Mother who drove with children into ocean thought there were ‘demons’
I felt so sick for these poor babies when I first read about this story. Mothers who try to kill or succeed in killing their children are baffling stories to comprehend – though we must realize that mental illness and depression are very difficult conditions that are often downplayed or missed entirely before until it is too late. My heart goes out to this family!

№ 2. Who actually earns $400,000 per year?
No surprise, tax rates went up for persons earning more than $400K and couples earning more than $450K per year after the fiscal cliff in 2012. So what professions actually make this kind of money? Read on!

№ 3. U.S. planning possible withdrawal of all troops from Afghanistan
Obviously I’m way behind the times, because I thought this had already happened!? Obama is ordering plans to bring all troops home by the end of 2014.

№ 4. Malaysia Airlines Plane Missing At Sea Off Vietnam
There are a lot of different links and aspects to this story. I have been following it because it is befuddling to me that a plane could literally disappear off radar in spite of this technologically advanced day in age we are living in. I hope that there is closure eventually, especially for the families who are missing their loved ones.

№ 5. 3rd-Graders Caught Smoking Weed In School Bathroom
Good grief. I suppose the recent casual attitude towards marijuana is now rubbing off on the younger crowd. Not going to dive too far into that touchy subject, just hope the parents of these tikes get looked up and down very closely.

And now for your….weeklydoseofridiculous

I am incredulous. WHAT IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE?? Professionalism obviously doesn’t exist in this woman’s vocabulary.

Have a blessed week and thank you for reading!

I'm a mom that loves blogging.
