First things first (otherwise they wouldn’t be first!), this was supposed to have been posted yesterday.
But, I’m a procrastinator (procrastinate (verb): to be slow or late about doing something that should be done : to delay doing something until a later time because you do not want to do it, because you are lazy, etc.) was out Christmas shopping and it didn’t happen.
I also had to take Thing 2 to urgent care because she tried to slice off her fingertip. *sigh* A mother’s work is never done.
Okay, so I didn’t HAVE to take her to urgent care. Well, I mean, she definitely needed to go but she totally could have taken herself because she’s old enough (and moved out!) but I got to play mom and I wasn’t complaining one little bit! 🙂
And, because I was so busy, I didn’t food prep either.
Okay, I actually didn’t even plan on food prepping because I only have to work 2 days this week and I’ll be doing all the pre-Christmas dinner cooking on Wednesday anyway.
So, maybe it’s perfect that I didn’t post this yesterday as planned. Gives me something to post today. 🙂
And now, without further ado, yesterday’s unpublished post…..
You guys probably don’t even realize how many blogs I actually read.
Seriously, sometimes there’s just not enough time in the day to get all my reading done. I mean, that whole work business really gets in the way. 🙂
Anyway, I figured it was about time I started sharing some of what I’ve read. I mean, it’s pretty selfish of me to keep it all to myself. It is the season of giving, after all. 😉
So, from now on, every Sunday, I’ll be spreading the link love. Enjoy!

Talk to me: What have you read lately?
Thanks for featuring my bombs 🙂 Good reading list there!
I read a ridiculous number of blogs, too. I wish I could come up with some sort of scanning into my brain instead of reading so I could take in more 🙂
I’m right there with you food prep is so not happening right now! Can not wait for Christmas dinner though! Thanks for including my post I look forward to more link round up posts! I love checking them out 🙂
You’re welcome! Thanks for sharing some great ideas! People really do tend to forget about taking care of themselves during the holidays. I love that you shared things that don’t cost money, too. Taking a walk or playing with pets are amazing stress relievers! Have you seen that video where people play with the kittens and completely forget their problems for a little bit? I love that. I think I’m in need of a massage, myself! 🙂
Oh my gosh, thank you so much for including my post! Enjoyed looking through the other links, as well 🙂
You’re welcome! I’ve been working really hard on my pushups – keeping my elbows close in and squeezing my gut & glutes. The hard work really pays off and your tips are on point! Thank YOU for sharing them! 🙂
