A big thank you and what I'm reading this week

Before I get to the links, can I first just thank you guys for the amazing support you have given me this week?  I am always so hesitant to post things that are too personal that involve other people because I don't want to paint others in a bad light that can't tell their side of the story.  But as usual, you have allowed me to open up to something that has long been a road block and shared your own stories, some of which made me cry.  I hate that some of us can relate to not winning the family lottery but it can help to know you're not alone and that maybe something I'm going through can help someone else.  It's not all about weight stuff.  (Though not dealing with issues like that can lead to weight issues.  Eating your feelings, self worth issues, etc)

So thanks again for allowing me to open up and responding with wonderful comments and emails.

Enough of the gushy stuff, let's get to...

This weekend we've got a ton of stuff to get done so nothing really "fun" planned.  But I'm sure we'll get out of the house at some point.

How about you?  Anything on tap for the weekend?

  1. More great links! But I guess I slacked this week because I don't see any provided by me this time. But I do see one specifically for me so that's cool! Thanks!

    1. In your defense, you provided three last week so you were just working ahead. Yeah, you'll like the one for you. ;-)

  2. As always, love all the reading links! I learn something new, every Friday! :)

  3. I'm so glad you opened up and unburdened your spirit with this. It's cathartic to go through something like that and having the safety of a support system gives you the strength and courage to do so.

    This was an uber crappy week, so I'm glad the weekend is here! Tomorrow is my OA conference and I volunteered to do the registration table. It's sooooo out of my comfort zone, which is why I did it. I'm looking forward to listening and laughing. I donated a few Longaberger baskets for the raffle so it'll be fun to see the gift sets and who they go to. Then I'll come home and do the first lawn-cutting of the season. I am SO excited to be getting outdoors to do something physical. I'll sweat like a hog (ha! sweathog...snort) but it'll be good sweat. Then I'll be toast after that. =o) Did a load of laundry tonight so I'm ahead of the game in that regard. Other than that, the rest of the weekend is open.

    1. Enjoy your weekend, sounds like you deserve it! Oh and "up your nose with a rubbah hose!"


Thanks for taking the time to comment! I appreciate your time! (Heads up though...disrespectful or spam comments will be deleted.)
