What I'm Reading This Week #16

Happy Friday y'all!  I hope the week hasn't beat you up too much and you're ready to get out and enjoy the weekend!   It was a busy week full of appointments.  My usual twice a week chiro appointments which is nice (though I wish I had faster results with pain relief) and I also got a 'bonus' appointment of having my leg veins evaluated by the Mr's doctor.  My dad's side has notoriously crappy veins and the past few years I've been noticing some disturbing changes in the ankle/foot area so it was time to do the deed.  Essentially I knew it was just going to be ultrasounds and the results of it but I also knew from the Mr's initial session that it wouldn't be easy as he almost fainted during his.  (But he also didn't eat breakfast sooo.)   Well, I got it done and it wasn't bad as far as the scans are concerned.  I did receive a mentally devastating diagnosis in addition to having to have the vein stuff done so I need to do a little processing and I'm sure I'll do a post on it soon after I stop randomly crying.

Now let's get to:

How Much Caffeine Is in My Tea?  (Good stuff to know!)

How to Decompress Your Spine to Reduce Back Ache and Pain  (If you have access to your joists in your basement or something, you can use those to do the dead hangs.  Hurts so good!)

3 Steps to Workout Motivation  (It can be hard to come by sometimes)

5 Foods To Help You Sleep (I'll take all the friggin help I can get but if these don't work, the tryptophan supps I take on occasion actually work over melatonin and even antihistamines for me.)

15 Gorgeous Deck and Patio Ideas You Can DIY  (In case your outdoor space needs a little zhuzh.)

We've got a crapload of stuff to get done this weekend that has gotten to the back burner when it absolutely should not have.  So I guess we activate whirling dervish mode and hope for the best!  Why do I do this to myself?? 😑

What are you whirling into this weekend?

(I challenge just one other person in addition to my hubs and bestie to answer!  
Y'all keep telling me this isn't an audience of two but...)

  1. TGIF! I don't know how it is that I'm the oldest person on my team but sometimes it definitely feels like I'm babysitting and I'm thankful for the break this weekend. I know we have plenty to do and I'm fine with that let's just get it done. Have a great weekend everyone!

  2. This weekend will be a bit of work (not too long though), laundry, errands, church, and misc stuff around the house that has been neglected too long. What exactly that will entail I'm not sure, because when I say I'm going to get x y and z done, I usually accomplish about half of x and that's it. LOL I can't even meet my own expectations let alone anyone else's! Bhahahaha!! I'll be perusing these articles later tonight when all is quiet in the house.
    I hope you guys have a good weekend and get a lot of stuff done that you've wanted to tackle for a while. Hope you have nice weather, too! It's blowing like 40mph here! Yeesh.
