What I'm Reading This Week #28

It's finally Friday, all!  I hope you've had a good week and have some top rate shenanigans on tap for your weekend!  It's been a long, emotional week here.  The first of many irritations with our healthcare system that seems to fail people at every turn.  I'm surprised at this point they don't just expect people to schedule their own appointments then scan and diagnose themselves.  Anyhoo.  It's so hot out.  We did one walk Monday and it was disgusting.  My skin felt like it was on fire for a good 90 minutes after despite sunscreen.  Is it Fall yet?  Not the beginning of it either, like November like Fall when temps actually start to dip.  

Now let's dip into:

New Research Says Exercising Without Enough Sleep Diminishes Workout Benefits  (I really don't know how to change this.  I have been a 5-6 hour sleeper my entire life.  Melatonin is a hard no because I feel groggy the next day.  Sigh.)

Dietitians Caution Against 'What I Eat In A Day' Videos  (It's nice for inspiration but not much more than that.)

10 Toxically Positive Statements That Hurt Your Mental Health  (Yeah, these are some pretty flick-worthy statements and I have a feeling we're going to be hearing a lot more of them soon.)

Are Granite Countertops Outdated?  (ROFL...they said 'look like meat.')

The Breakfast Club Deleted Scenes - Part 1  (Stumbled on this in our feed and a must watch for any fan of the movie.  Very interesting what was cut and Carl was particularly brutal to the kids midway through.)

The Breakfast Club Deleted Scenes Part 2  (I always find these so interesting to see if we agree with what the director cut or not!)

I don't feel like we can really make plans for anything right now yet I also feel like there's nothing we can do so I'm just in this weird numb limbo while we wait for any answers.  I've researched myself into vertigo so I guess we'll just see where the next few days take us.  

Where are the next few days taking you?  Anything planned?

  1. No plans and you're right, just going where they days take us for now. We will just try to enjoy any little pockets of time we can get to ourselves and recharge together.

    1. Thank you so much for all you've done for both of us already. I would never make it without you.

  2. I hope you have as relaxing a weekend as possible. Hopefully with some answers as well.
    Hubs did the grocery shopping today because I have a gastro appt to go to in a little bit and I'm finishing up at work. No great shakes this weekend other than laundry, cleaning, helping someone tomorrow night, and church on Sunday.
