10 Things To Do When You Get Home Instead of Eating Everything In Your Fridge

A quick guide to getting rid of the long romantic walk to the fridge

10 Things To Do When You Get Home Instead of Eating Everything In Your Fridge

1. Avoid the kitchen

Out of sight, out of mind...right? Although the more you try not to think about the leftover chocolate cake, the more you keep thinking about it...

2. Drink water...a lot of it

If you drink enough water you will feel so bloated you may not even need to eat dinner!

3. Exercise/Stretch

Exercise? Did you mean fall of the couch in a not so elegant way when you find out about a possible musical episode of The Flash/Supergirl?

4. Get work done

The downward spiral of making calls, answering emails, opening mail. Its almost like you haven't left the office!

5. Nap

MAKE SURE YOU SET AN ALARM! Or you will wake up at 3am craving steak and mashed potatoes.

6. Watch Cat videos

The internet is a wonderful, magical realm full of funny videos and endless online shopping. Here is a link to one of my favorite cat videos:

7. Run errands until its actually time to eat

If you keep putting of that shopping list, you may run out of food in the fridge to avoid anyway!

8. Read a book

Preferably not a cook book

Although everyone should be interested in this book:

9. Watch TV

Probably not the Food Channel...or the Bachelor(it will make you go get that ice cream or popcorn you've been thinking about since you got home...#CorrineIsHorrible)

10. Give up and go raid the leftovers

Let's face it, it was bound to happen eventually, why put off the inevitable? Plus, now you're really thinking about that leftover chocolate cake...

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe.
