What I'm Reading This Week #24

Hip Happy Friday y'all!  Why did this week feel so looooong?  I've been feeling quite mentally off lately, some of which I'll write about next week.  No strength which is not good.  I think because the weather has been cooler we've just decided to keep that up but added an extra lap.  The balls of my feet are paying the price too.  I just ordered new insoles I'll be taking for a spin because the old Spencos I used to swear by have cheaped out according to my feet and that's when a lot of problems started.  I switched to a less expensive insole which has been adequate but not particularly supportive.  I'll do a review of the new ones in case anyone is interested.  Fingers crossed!

Now let's review:

These 3 Spices Can Prevent Cognitive Decline, Research Finds  (Knew about the first two but the third was a surprise)

The Relentless Reality of Anti-Fatness in Fitness  (I think I would've needed bail money with that trainer.)

Generational Dieting Trauma: How To Break the Diet Cycle With Your Kids  (Anyone else remember the magnets of "a minute on the lips, a lifetime on the hips?"  Yeah, those things stick.)

10 Pet Peeves That Reflect Childhood Trauma Wounds  (Oh man, when they apply, they UH-PLY!)

Why I Sleep in a Separate Bed From My Husband  (More people do it than you think.  Pretty eye opening article)

Picking the 'right' sunscreen isn't as important as avoiding these 6 mistakes  (Good thing to remember as we go into summer.  This one is one of my faves and if you want to smell like 80's summer, this one fits the bill and reef safe.)

Should I Use AC When Air Quality Is Bad? How Air Conditioning Impacts Smoke Pollution  (These are the filters we started using in 2020 and they are effective for filtering smoke as well.)

21 Incredible Road Trips in the U.S.  (Looks like some great options!  The Mr and I are considering the Route 66 trip.)

17 "Food Hacks" That Are Actual Hacks  (Some great ideas here!  I'll definitely be using my tea infusers this way the next time I need them.)

7 Modern Farmhouses on the Market Right Now  (I'll be over here picking my jaw up off the floor.)

No plans that I know of but hopefully somewhere in there we either get the heck out of the house or we get some crap done that's been put off.  (We're the reason there are memes about still not being unpacked a month later.  Sometimes we're right on it but this one...still toiletry bags that now live on the table because we're lazy.  😳)

Anyone doing anything this last weekend of Spring?

  1. I hope you guys have a good weekend and can get out and enjoy some time away from the house. Very busy week ahead of me starting tonight. I'm filling in for my friend/former coworker at my old caregiving job as she's going on her first vacation in six years of working there. I had told her I'd gladly cover for her when the time came and all these months later it's finally arrived. So I'll be working her 6-9pm shift tonight and M-F next week. So I'll need to get a lot done today after work and over the weekend. Both cars are back from the various mechanics, so that's a big help. Have a great weekend!

    1. I'm sure your friend really appreciates that and your old employers will be happy to see you! (Plus a little extra moolah never hurt)

  2. It has been a weird week but thanks to a particularly disruptive coworker being out all week, I actually got a lot done at work. So I earned my weekend for sure and am looking forward to it. Have a great weekend everyone!

    1. Let's hope he announces that'll be permanent so you can actually do your job instead of listening to him bitch 4 hours out of every day!
