What I'm Reading This Week #34

Happy Friday everyone!  I hope everyone has had a great week.  It's been a good one here because of the outpouring of love and support from all of you here and on Facebook.  We're truly touched at the support and the sharing of your own stories as well.  We'll be sharing just a touch more next week then back to regularly scheduled programming.  (aka- boring crap.)

But for now, let's bore into...

Here's Exactly How To Stop Yourself From Self-Sabotaging In The Moment  (Cut dat chit out!)

All Nuts Are Good for You, But These 8 Are the Healthiest  (We're all about the nuts here.)

Graphic helps identify what triggers you emotionally in relationships   (Great graphic to help you go deeper)

15 'habits' of people who grew up with an 'emotionally fragile' parent  (When getting 13 of 15 is a bad thing.  LOL)

This Is Exactly How To Deal With Someone Else's Negative Energy  (Because I'm a 9 year old boy at heart, I couldn't stop thinking I'd change my last name if I was that author.  Grow old, not up.)

33 home upgrades that cost less than $100  (A nice mix of good suggestions and eye rollers.)

This Is Exactly How Long Meal-Prepped Food Stays Good, According to a Food Safety Expert  (Definitely good info to know if you're thinking of meal prepping)

This Is The Toxic Habit That Can Slowly Ruin Your Relationship   (Truth)

Apathy: Alzheimer's oft-neglected symptom   (Good to know especially if you see a change in yourself or a loved one.)

Metallica Donates a Quarter-Million Dollars to Help Build First Children’s Hospital of Its Kind in Romania  (First, scaring off a cougar, now donating for children's hospital.)

‘Best Boyfriend Ever’ Fills Anniversary Gift – a Prescription of ‘Love Pills’– With Tiny Notes  (Aww, so sweet!)

Stranger’s Kindness Towards Anxious Senior on Airplane Leaves Witnesses Wiping Away ‘Happy Tears’  (I'm not crying, you're crying!  FYI- the woman referred to is not the woman by the window, she's a little shadowed by backlighting.  Look toward the middle of the pic.)

We've got a baby shower this weekend for a dear friend.  It's a couples thing, the Mr is going and I didn't even have to ask.  (I actually wasn't going to.  LOL)  I think this girl is literally the only person he'd do that for so he's going to be my anchor in a room full of strangers.  We went overboard but she's worth it and it'll be fun to see how they do showers now.  The baby of the last one I went to is 27 if that tells you anything.  NONE of my friends had kids so I definitely know how to pick like minded people!

  1. Happy Friday everyone! It's been a tough week exercise wise and I am looking forward to that one day off we get!

  2. My 25 son is home, first time I've seen him this year! Hanging with both boys and probly doing an escape room. Enjoy your weekend!

  3. This has been a long, tiring, and stressful week so I'm very happy the weekend is here. I'm grocery shopping today since the hubs works tomorrow and I have a hair appt. I'll do laundry today too and that's it. I need some serious down time and aside from a couple of important phone calls I need to do today, I'm unplugging from life this weekend. And it couldn't come at a batter time because the weather is supposed to be gorgeous -- especially at night when it gets in the low 50's -- woot!
    Have a super time at the baby shower!
