Life has taught me that it's okay to stand up for yourself and put them haters back in their place. It's also okay to talk ghetto sometimes.

2. All adult chores
3. No bills
4. Health Receptionist
5. Pay your bills on time and monitor your credit score

This book was great. I‘d heard of Arden Rose from other YouTubers but never saw any of her videos. Arden gave a realistic view on life but also made it funny. I would read It again and recommend it to anyone willing to read it.

I think I may have found something to check out in the @EpicReads lookbook!

So that self care tip does that include a face mask, bath bomb, glass of wine and chocolate? Because I'm totally doing that tonight.

Well it was a short read, so that was one reason I decided to finish it. It just didn‘t click with me, and I don‘t feel like I‘ve really learned anything by reading this. It has a cute cover, but I just felt dissatisfied with this.

tournevis Like the cover says, "You tried." 5y

Repping one of my favorite sock pairs today, second only to my banned books pair!#AdultInTraining 📚😍. Chronic Illness doesn‘t disappear on #Readathon day (although it‘d be sweet if it could!), but my new Quell unit is keeping my nervous system calm and happy today, so that‘s a Readathon win! 🙌🏼. What‘s your favorite book related clothing?!

I have to go be an adult this morning and get groceries before I can continue this. I‘d save it for later, but I‘m finally going to see Black Panther tonight! Yay! And if the weather is correct I can stay home while it snows tomorrow.

The in-laws have been in Mumbai for a week... tonight, they are in a hotel and yes, those are Lucky Charms and yes, this is dinner and nope, I feel not a skerrick of concert that I‘ve reverted to “teenager” for the night. I‘ve barricaded the doors, threatened Mr GaD with disemboweling if he disturbs me, have a book, a kitty and won‘t starve. If I get a decent nights sleep, I could be in paradise! 😂🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻

Rachel.Rencher Hahah lucky charms are so good! I can't imagine being around my in laws for a week 🤤 5y
JamieArc I just heard they are adding a new marshmallow - a unicorn 🦄😊 5y

TommieMarie74 I love cereal for dinner! It has 12 essential vitamins and nutrients!!! And Lucky Charms is the very best one. #SoulSisters 5y
GlassAsDiamonds @Rachel.Rencher 8 Days!!!!!!!! 🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯 @Cinfhen That may prove to be very good advice - the kitty punched MIL in the face, no claws just straight out sucker punch to the nose ...🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️ I am never going to live this down... (edited) 5y
GlassAsDiamonds @TommieMarie74 😊😊😊 there are days when quiet literally nothing else will do aren‘t there?? (Like when your cat has punched your MIL). (edited) 5y
Cinfhen Oooh #BadKitty 😼🙀😽 5y
GlassAsDiamonds @Cinfhen well....... My pro-kitty agenda is probably clear but (internally) I giggled ... 5y
Zelma 😂 I snorted out loud when I read that your cat punched your MIL in the nose. That is hilarious, and frankly would be funny to anyone. 5y
GlassAsDiamonds @Zelma well... except a MIL but I‘m still amused...!! 😊😊😊 5y

Was hoping to come home from clinic to a semi- easy evening. But nope 👎.......dog chewed up a bunch of legos, don‘t have a clue what to make for supper, big paper due Sunday, Birthday 🎂 party to plan, and to top it off ......a 7 year old with possible strep.
Adulting is hard. But on the positive side my BOTM came today 😁👍👏🏻

I've always enjoyed Arden's outlook on life and this was a nice little peak further into her thoughts. An enjoyable light read.
