Was a life-saver during Thanksgiving. The prices can be pretty reasonable, and they deliver when they say they will. If you order a perishable item, it will arrive cold and frozen items arrive still frozen. Yes you have to pay $5 for the materials to keep the items at the right temperature, but it’s worth it.

During summer when I was having health issues with things id never had issues with before, I wanted to know more about my genes. Because 23 and me specifically tells you if you are a carrier for many things, I decided to go with them. It was a little pricey and  it does take a while to get your results back, but reading them has been enlightening.  A lot of things I knew about myself were confirmed, but some things I didn’t know including another ethnicity were revealed.  Some of the results they did get, I knew were untrue like- your genes show that you’re not likely to have dimples, but my face tells me differently..  Anyway,  I’m thinking that, if you want pinpoint accuracy, It would probably be much more expensive and take an even longer time. From what I understand, Ancestry.com gives you a broader look at where you came from. Ancestry.com is having a 10% off deal that ends on the 14th. If you don’t mind a wider scope snapshot of who you are, you might want to invest in it.

Audible. com
Has helped me to keep my sanity during these past few weeks. I have not been able to handle the  literary fiction that I enjoy just yet, but I bought this book last Wednesday and am half way through, so maybe I’m ready to try jumping back in. Since the election I’ve read 10 books or so.  That was possible because it has mainly been light reading – Mysteries (Agatha Raisin, Hercule Poirot, Precious Ramawatswe), One Literary Fiction  and my favorite author released a non fiction piece, which I wasn’t particularly fond of, but it’s ok.  At least I read it. If you are a new customer. Audible offers your first book free! Check them out!

Ok, this is brand new to me. I have been responsible for my family’s meals before, but I never planned for them weeks ahead of time. Now that I really need to stick to a stricter diet, I’m wondering if this could help me out at all.  If because Ive never been much of a planner, it will be all for naught, then Ill be disappointed. In any case, if you actually do plan the family meals, you might find this quite helpful!

  2. Visit postsecret.com and read some secrets or be inspired to create your own.
