What I'm Reading This Week #46

Happy Friday everyone!  We made it.  Do your Friday dance.  Go ahead...I'll wait.

It's been another crazy busy week and I can't wait until I don't have to say that anymore especially given we've got a lot coming up this week.  It's not just the usual holiday stuff with Thanksgiving either.  We're going to be hosting my Grandpa's wife this Tuesday for our Christmas gathering so the house needs to be cleaned like we're bringing someone with no immune system home and have the house decorated.  Before anyone says it doesn't have to be decorated...yes it does.  ;-)

But enough about that, let's jump into...

5 Yoga Stretches to Relieve Tight Calves and Shins (You know I'm all over these this week!)

Shoe-Tying Hacks  (You won't believe how much these can help!)

This Healthy Holiday Hack Will Save You So Many Calories This Season  (I can wait to try sugar cookie tea!  YUM!)

How To Solve Achilles Tendon Pain  (Mine have been real a-holes this week)

8 Ways to Improve Your Sleep (I swear if ONE MORE article tells me not to workout in the evening, I'm going to scream.  Don't workout like 30 minutes before bedtime, otherwise workout when it fits your friggin' schedule.  *nerve obviously hit*)

Feeling Dry & Itchy, Sad, Or Sick? Here's How To Help Your Body Adjust To The Cold  (word.)

The Best Way to Build Boundaries With Difficult Parents  (In case you'll be dealing with any next week)

10 Other Conversation Topics for Thanksgiving Dinner  (Some of these are good but some sound like ways to initiate a whole new shite show!)

Man who was photographed eating with a stranger hopes to have breakfast with her more often  (While I love this story, and I do hope a new friendship has been formed.  But I really wish people would stop taking pictures of strangers and posting it on social media without their permission regardless of the situation.)

Super guilty dog literally can't keep a straight face  (HILARIOUS!)

Christmas gift?  (The Mr claims he doesn't want this for Christmas but he got way too excited showing it to me for me to believe that.)

We're doing a little antiquing Saturday then probably putting up the tree.  Soooo much to do.

What are you guys into this weekend?

  1. We do have a lot to do this weekend but I am hoping that when it's done we might finally get a chance to breathe and start to enjoy the season for once. Happy Friday everyone!

  2. I use the heel slippage lacing technique and it really does make a difference.

    Working out when it fits your schedule makes more sense. If I were to work out before work, I'd have get up before 5 am. I'm a night owl by nature so I wouldn't go to bed any earlier. Boom, an hour less sleep a night. Not going to happen.

    I like the article about dealing with difficult parents, but it didn't help me much. lol. It's not my parents that are difficult, it the way I react to being around them. I feel 12 again and I hate it, but it's not anything they're doing.

    I'd be furious about someone taking and posting pictures of me without permission. It's a nice, heat-warming story - but how dare that lady throw it up on social media. None of her business.

    Lightening McQueen is super cool. I bet the boy would love that.

    Not a lot going on this weekend. Paying bills, cleaning house, school work. Ugh. Plus going to the school play so that part will be fun.

  3. I'm diggin' the Lightening McQueen car. I might do something similarly youthful for my hubby. He got a big kick out of Jack-Jack from the Incredibles and and I found both a toy that makes his sounds and a set with a punching raccoon. Can't decide which will make him laugh more.

  4. I finally had a chance to read the articles -- great ones! You can bet I'm doing those stretches. The Thanksgiving topics were interesting - nice, neutral things to discuss. Smart!
