What I'm Reading This Week #32

Howdy do everyone?  The weekend is upon us and we are here for it.  We had some nice rainy weather off and on this week and I'm always down for that.  Not only is it calmer feeling for me than sun blazing in my face and a wall of gross when you step foot outside but it helps keep the never ending outdoor construction dust at bay.  I swear I don't know how long it takes to build a three tenant building but these effers are going for a record.  (And that's the second construction project.  The one on the main road has made zero progress in our neck of the woods over the past three months and they work on random stuff wherever the bulldozer lands for the day.)  So to say we haven't been on the patio at all this year except twice that I can remember between heat and dust isn't an understatement.  I'm always amazed my car isn't buried under an entire mound of dirt each week.

But now let's dig up...

10 Iron-Rich Foods You Need to Add to Your Diet  (Yes please!  Well, except #2 because eww.) 

How to Know If You're Stress Eating and What You Can Do to Stop  (Not doing a reno will quell the urge to curl up with a bag of these.)

Even simple exercise may help aging brain  (Every little bit counts!)

How to Hack Your Hormones for a Better Mood  (We could all use a boost now and then!)

Anti-aging creams and how the skin care industry makes you a customer for life  (It's true and I've never once met a cream/serum that performs any of the 'miracles' they claim.  (The latest being Peace Out skincare dark spot serum.  Total pooper for me.)  I don't try them often but when I give them the amount of time they say or longer...nothing.  I'll take my Andalou Naturals and Acure skincare which is natural, affordable and moisturizing and all you can really do if you plan to age naturally.)

Ashley Judd Says Family Grieves Differently After Naomi Judd's Death  (This family is perfectly approaching the individual  grieving process and everyone's right to do so that is right for them.  As members of a family that was ripped apart by how others tried to dictate we all grieve, this is the most important article of this round.  Books like this can also help you navigate the process.)

Farewell, Olivia Newton-John: Why We Honestly Loved Her (Never will a more pure human being exist.) 

Funny Movie Details That Might Ruin The Movie For You  (I don't think it's going to ruin anything for anyone but I'm going to be keeping my eye out for a few of the things in movies we watch pretty regularly.)

We are taking some time off this weekend to decompress.  It's been a not so great mental week on many fronts and we need some time to reset da brains.  We're going to unplug and not work on the house right now so that we can forget a bit of the crap fest that has been the past month (plus).  It put a choke hold on the marriage for a little while and if we're going to come out on the other side after attempting floors then we need to get in a better headspace and set some rules up.  While that doesn't sound like fun, anything will be better than how we've spent the last month and if we've learned nothing, it's that we need an actual plan and to learn how to respect each other's process going forward.  (Also looking forward to prioritizing a little relaxation in there too.)
