Tackling the black hole and what I'm reading this week

It's the weekend, yo!

I'm so ready for it.  I finally started tackling the office.  The desk was so covered, absolutely no work could be done.  It was just bags and bags of crap in there so I started going through those and then kicked up so much damn dust I had to leave.  The nasal steroid is doing it's job but then I got a huge allergy attack.  Up to this point I've always considered my allergies pretty minor but I think they've kicked up a notch.  But I'll cover all of that next week.

Right now, let's get to...

19 Brilliant Car Hacks to Ride In Style (and Save Money!)  (We can vouch for #9.  Nothing like the looks you get when you're plunging your car outside a Maui supermarket after a hit and run.  Incidentally, this is why you always get the LDW for rental cars, we've been hit twice.)

10 Unexpected Stressors That Are Wrecking Your Health  (Good stuff in here)

16 Stunning Portraits From The Vanity Fair Oscar Party  (Some seriously stunning pics.  I love the one of Jennifer and Justin)

35 Body-Positive Mantras to Say in Your Mirror Every Morning   (Some very good ones in here sprinkled with the cheesy ones)

This Friendship Between a Toddler And Her Piglet is Almost Too Adorable to Handle  (Make sure you watch the video.  Cute overload)

Deleted SLEEPY HOLLOW Selfie Scene (For those who want to see the whole "selfie" video from the finale.  It doesn't have spoilers, just a super fun video to watch.  The Sleepycast may have spoilers but I haven't listened to it)

Lemon Water For Digestion: Legit Or Quit?  (Good info for those who imbibe)

Signs That You Might Be Dorothy From The Golden Girls  (Um, holy crap.  Every line of it is me!)

The Best and Worst Foods to Eat Before Bed  (I've been thinking about adding tart cherry juice.  Anyone try it?)

Are These the 21 Best Fried Chicken Spots in America?  (I can vouch for Gus' and about blew a gasket when I saw they're coming to Chicago!)

3 Things You Didn’t Know Dry Shampoo Can Do   (Pretty cool tricks!)

Real-Life 'Notebook' Couple Dies Hand-in-Hand  (Good Lord, grab the tissues.  I so related when the man said to "fix her."  Grandpa was two years in thinking Grandma was somehow going to be "fixed" as well.  It's like the older generation doesn't get that dementia patients don't get better)

6 'Unhealthy' Foods That Blast Fat (I always lost weight when I ate baked potatoes.  I'll never cut those babies)

Nutella Jar Sparks Tragic House Fire  (Good info to know if you have glass on your window sills)

Here's What Really Happened To The Cars From 'Pimp My Ride'  (Wow)

Badass sea lion crashes family kayaking day  (My dream come true!  As long as it doesn't bite me!)

We don't really have anything planned for this weekend that I'm aware of.

How about you?  Anything fun planned?

  1. Great links. I especially like the hacks to ride in style. We did indeed get a hit and run twice. Both times in Hawaii but different islands. Some people have no respect for rental cars.

  2. I'm going to be in my sewing room all weekend. I've got the "quilting" bug :)

    I wanted to comment on the lemon water issue. when I was pregnant with my first child, I had a HORRIBLE problem with constipation. Seriously. I talked to my mom about about it and she told me to drink 3 Tbsp hot water with 1 Tbsp lemon juice each morning.
    Let me tell you, IT WORKED. I don't know the science and I don't care - I just know relief :)
    This was 35+ years ago, so Beyonce' et al DID NOT come up with this. I finding that many of the "old wives' tales" actually work.
    So...if this is an issue with you. Try it :)

  3. I'm a walking tin man right now. Helped mom earlier in the week move my uncle's stuff to his new place, then today was told we'd be cleaning the warehouse at work. My back is killing me and I'm limping along with my ankle. I'm on-call for work this weekend, but am planning in doing as little as possible as far as activity. Grocery shopping is about it outside the house. I'll do laundry (the hubs did all the vacuuming this week) and kitchen stuff, but that's it. I am so flipping tired and I'm hoping for some solid sleep. My big plans for the weekend is.... a hot, hot shower... =o)


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