What I'm Reading This Week #14

Good Friday morning to you! today good Friday?  *one moment*  I'll be a monkey's is!  I made an unintentional funny since I no longer have any concept of time.  

Hello from contractor central!  It's been another "fun" week of strange men traipsing through the house.  Two drywallers and two visits from plumbers.  I say this with all trepidation...I think we might be done with contractors right now?  Let me rephrase as I've been done with contractors mentally for weeks now...I don't think we require the services of contractors anymore.  At this point, something would have know what?  I'm not even finishing that sentence.  We'll just say that we foresee this project falling completely on the Mr and I now and our motivation to finish which also makes me laugh as contractors have a way of sucking out all motivation from your project and just leaving you with the stained, battered remnants of a once pretty decent looking house.

Now let's motivate ourselves with:

The Best 10-Minute Full-Body Workout, No Equipment Needed  (I'm down for that...when we have our gym back...some year.  I suppose we could do it at the park if I don't mind ending up on TikTok or as a meme.)

4 Gentle Mobility Exercises a Trainer Says You Should Be Doing  (Will definitely help if you sit for your job.)

Eating more magnesium each day keeps dementia at bay  (Courtesy of the Mr.  Important to note this is through food source and not from mag supplements which apparently contribute TOWARD dementia.  Why do I feel like we're all just screwed no matter what we do??)

Spending This Much Time Outside Each Day Could Make You Live Longer  (That's doable!  Heck, enjoy your morning coffee in the sunshine if you can because isn't that what House Hunters says we all do?  "We can enjoy our morning coffee on this deck/patio/balcony.")

Self-Discovery as We Age (I'm discovering I have low tolerance for contractors but I don't think that's what they're talking about.)

I’m a Therapist, and This is How To Respond When You’re Not Ready To Accept an Apology (Great info and something we all should read!  #2 has great ways to respond to people who immediately want you to let them off the hook and take zero responsibility for their actions.  It's all about boundaries!)

How can I make a small living room look less cluttered? 10 must-know solutions  (I just did #8 for the living room.  I'm looking forward to walking on an actual rug and not ramboard some day!)

Here’s How to Clean a Glass Oven Door Inside and Out (In case your oven is getting a lot of use this holiday!)

Inside the Legend of the Whisky a Go Go  (How many summers I drove by this place longing to be old enough to go inside for debauchery and by the time I was, my hair bands were gone. 😢)

Well, it's Easter weekend for those who celebrate.  We're picking up our honeybaked ham slices today and are going to do our celebration for two tomorrow instead of Sunday down in the basement at a folding table like the bridge trolls we are.  I'm sure we'll be doing something home wise but we both agree we need a little recharge as well so we'll probably be passed out surrounded by Easter bunny remnants in a sugar coma.  It's going to have to be the last hurrah for a little while because we've used food to cope through this horrible reno process and I'm getting chub rub in places usually reserved for post-vacay gain.  😭

What do you guys have on the menu for Easter?  I'm always interested to see what people have or are traditions in their families.

  1. Hallelujah on the contractors being gone! I'm not sure what my aunt Will be cooking up When my brother and I surprise her by showing up at the farm! I'm so excited, this will be my 1st social visit since mom passed away in December. I can't wait to get out of town for a while, and my brother got an airbnb that takes pups So bagel will be joining me ! Happy Easter, enjoy

  2. I hope you have a wonderful weekend and congratulations on getting through contractors in your house! I have work this morning, then we grocery shop, then I'll go to Good Friday service at church. The rest of the weekend will be working for him, church on Easter for me, and getting as much cleaning done as possible which I haven't done in two weeks. Have a great weekend!
