The Relentless Weekly – Aug. 28, 2020

It’s time for another weekly round-up here on the blog. Ready? Let’s go!

Celebrating: Today is my paternal grandma’s 85th birthday! Happy birthday, Granny! She means the world to me, and has always been in my corner.

Reading: I’m listening to The Truths We Hold by Kamala Harris. It’s a well written political memoir (no deep dark secrets or gossip), and it reminds me of how inspiring she is. Recommended!

Cooking: I’ll be honest. We’re cooking anything that’s easy or that can be slapped on the grill. It’s hot, we’re busy, and I can’t be bothered lately. I’m very much looking forward to fall arriving. I need lower temps that are conducive to making soups, stews, and other hearty fare.

Posting: This week I shared a Get to Know Me Monday post about my quirky hands, and a passionate review of a beloved book of poetry by my youngest daughter. Check them out!

Sharing: I’m terrified of the dentist. I’m not talking about a little case of nerves. I’m talking shaking, crying, and sweating type of fear. The only way it could be worse is if the procedures took place at a great height, or if the dentist was a real live spider. BUT! I have discovered the glory of sedation dentistry! I spent 4 hours in a dental chair on Wednesday, but I was asleep! I had numerous procedures done in an afternoon, equivalent to about 10 separate appointments. I was sore and exhausted afterwards, but I’d never have gotten through it otherwise. This is a great option if you suffer from dental anxiety. #TheMoreYouKnow

Asking: Please read this thread from ACLU on Twitter asking for the immediate resignation of Kenosha Police Chief Daniel Miskinis and Kenosha County Sheriff David Beth. This thread includes phone numbers to call and an citizen complaint form that can be filled out.

Have a good weekend and a good week, everyone. Keep fighting the good fight.
