But I didn't expect my ambivalence toward dogs to be a dealbreaker in my adult dating life. I confessed I wasn't the biggest dog person, and he ghosted me. Don't get me wrong: I don't hate dogs. But, as glamorous as it sounds, I don't share the innate obsession with dogs many people seem to have. This is my biggest secret: If I love you, I will begrudgingly love your dog, too.

Last year, my husband was offered a job as a Camp Director at a small children's camp in remote Southwestern Ontario. Instead of worrying about paying for summer activities, our kids will spend leisurely summer days at the camp. Our kids sleep so much better at campOne of the most unexpected bonuses of summer camp life is our sleep habits. I'll gladly jump into the lake on a hot summer day with my girls or play a game of beach volleyball. When I go to bed at night, my pillow smells like a campfire, sunscreen, and sweat — all signs of a perfect day at summer camp.

Beijing's goal now is to minimize any impact from potential sweeping sanctions from the West in "extreme geopolitical scenarios," such as a military conflict over Taiwan, which China claims as its territory, wrote Liu. "Expanding the use of the renminbi in trade is less challenging than increasing its status as an international reserve currency," Liu wrote. AdvertisementHowever, capital controls are not necessarily a dealbreaker for the broader adoption of the yuan in trade, wrote Liu. It also shows it's not so easy to displace the mighty US dollar as the world's top reserve and trading currency of choice. A recent global survey of 1,660 enterprises showed that there is just not enough interest in using the yuan to trade.

I'm picky about instant meals, though, so I reviewed 23 of Trader Joe's frozen entrées. AdvertisementVERDICT: Although Trader Joe's penne arrabbiata could make for a satisfying, last-minute dinner, it wasn't memorable enough for me to buy again. Trader Joe's frozen section offers many different Tex-Mex and Mexican-inspired dishes, but I noticed these because of the "hatch chile" description. I thought Trader Joe's vegetable-and-cheese enchiladas were a disappointing, soggy messOnce cooked through, Trader Joe's vegetable-and-cheese enchiladas didn't impress me.

There's a mentality that you should strive to have a life outside work by working set hours and having boundaries. Deep work is the defaultAt work, Norwegians are working, and deep work is expected of everyone. I've set up my notification systems so that only important things come through outside work hours. Talking of work outside work is not taboo, but you don't want to be the guy who can't shut up about work. You get used to this dynamic where time is precious and hate it when someone's late outside work.

Strong friendships feel equal, exclusive, and mutually supportive. It's a beautiful experience, but one with under-appreciated complexities, Danielle Bayard Jackson, an author and friendship coach, told Business Insider. So before you dub your bestie a toxic friend, here are three major reasons your relationship feels like it's on the rocks — and what you can try before quiet-quitting the friendship. In her book, Jackson offered ways to start conversations around those issues, as well as advice on when to just walk away. In the book, Jackson described close friendship as creating a "vault" where "each friend contributes private things in an intimate and trustworthy space."

Sincerely,Cut-OffDear Cut-Off,AdvertisementAdvertisementI'm afraid your wife withholding your credit card is already dramatic, which means it's too late to get ahead of "a big drama." For example, you might say, "When you don't allow me access to our credit card, I feel demeaned and controlled, and I worry I'm repeating old patterns." Keeping an open mind doesn't mean you agree not to use the credit card anymore. If she becomes defensive and accusatory and fights for her right to continue withholding your credit card, it's time to pull out your arsenal of facts.
