Rest, merriment and what I'm reading this week
Happy Friday all! This week went by kind of fast for me. I'm not complaining though...welcome weekend!
I'm looking forward to a light workout today and a friggin' rest. My muscles are spent. I think I'm ready to change over to the winter scheme in the bedroom. The temps are getting ready to take a plunge and I can think of nothing more lovely than to curl up in that beautiful, plush duvet I got last year. It makes me feel all fancy pants.
Enough about my pants. Lets get to...
Why My Hamstrings Are Always Tight (This makes a lot of sense given the three things they mention are weak on me!)
Illustrated Guide to a Healthy Thanksgiving
Secrets of the Super Fit
Foam Rolling Exercises You Should Be Doing (The leg one made me laugh but I bet it would provide some relief)
Working Long Hours is Like Working for Free (For the workaholics out there)
Why Tea is So Good For You (I lurve me some tea)
How to Prevent Winter Weight Gain (No extra blubber layer required this year, thank you!)
9 Simple Ways to Prevent Alzheimers (Good info)

Customers to Kmart: "Shame on you!" (I worked retail in my teens and if I had to work Thanksgiving I'd quit. But shouldn't the people that should be "shamed" be the people who are demanding these stores are open almost all day on a family holiday? No demand, no supply needed. I'm not knocking people wanting to shop but come on, can't we let those poor retail people spend a friggin' holiday with their family if they want to??)
This Guy's Wife Got Cancer, So He Did Something Unforgettable (Tissues)
Is It Rude to Ask Guests to Take Their Shoes Off? (It's funny because we don't wear shoes in the house and in Hawaii it's a BIG no-no to wear shoes in the home due to the red dirt dying the floors. We keep our shoes by the front door and our guests have always taken it as a cue to take theirs off. We don't ask them to but it's nice they show enough respect to do so.)
This weekend we're going on a little road trip to make rather merry for the first Christmas event of the year. I need to remember to charge my camera. I've got yuletide bursting from my pores and I need to get it out in a place they don't Christmas shame you for being ready to celebrate the second week of November. :-)
Whatchu guys got on tap for the weekend?
