This is a cute little story of a 5-year-old girl named Genevieve writing a letter to another Genevieve she has never met… simply because she has the same first name. Her dad helped typed the letter for his daughter so that she could just say thanks for the inspiration. “Now I know that a girl with my same name can do something special and not be afraid.”
It’s really great (and sad at the same time) amidst today’s fast paced medium of technology, where toddlers run around with iPods and iPads, when a parent can say, ‘let’s type out a letter together, we’ll send it with some drawings in the mail to this person.’
With the United States back on the upswing from the recession, you’re thinking that this year might be the one where you pull together a family trip in the waning moments of summer. I mean, hey, the economy’s in a minor upswing, right? There’s a lot of places you’ve missed going to during the economic hardship, and now that it’s slowly moving on, it’s time for your family to party, right?
Well don’t be stupid, stupid.
Don’t let the slightly-lower gas prices and general sense of impending back-to-schoolism get you all hot in the pants – we’re still tightening our belts and making the best of what we’ve got, just in case international politics go all ape on us again. I mean, dude, you’re the head-of-household. You’ve got to have a plan. And a gun.
This is why I humbly present to you four satisfactory replacements for a last-minute family outing. You want to take care of your kids, but you definitely want to pinch your pennies for the zombie apocalypse.
