The Grown-Up Version of Saturday Morning Cartoons, Week 2

Good morning, everyone — and, of course, happy Saturday!

First of all, I want to thank all of  you again for your wonderful comments and support on my body image and fitness posts. I’m tickled pink — thrilled, actually — to know that those posts resonated with so many people. I plan to write many more such pieces on issues like this, so stay tuned! 🙂

For today, though, we have a busy day planned — and I’m really hoping to get outside and enjoy the one freaking day of nice weather we’re supposed to have before it gets cold and nasty again. Ok, ok: it’s more accurate to say that I’m practically rabid in my vehemence that I WILL SPEND TIME OUTDOORS during this all too brief interval of sunshine and mild temperatures.

Sick of winter
Story of my life, y’all.

Since a lot of you seemed to like the article round-up from last Saturday, I’m going to do the same thing this week — and feel free to let me know if there are other topics you’d like to see in this little muster of reading material. Enjoy, and have a lovely Saturday!
