This week, I was determined to workout for five days. Determined! And then Monday, I discovered a new and inventive way to injure yourself when using a VR headset.
I’ve been using my Oculus VR Headset mostly for working out ever since I was given it for my birthday back in February. There is a great program on it called Supernatural and it’s a fun and great workout – truthfully, I’ve never perspired so much. I’ve included a trailer so you can see it. It really does look like that when you have the headset on (minus seeing yourself)!
So – back to Monday – because of my determination to workout more this week, I came at it in a big way on Monday morning. I was aggressively popping those bubble like things with my sabers, and they were coming at me fast and furious. Now, I can’t see my hands at all when the headset is on though the game does alert me if I go out of the safety area (so I don’t run into things). Anyway, somehow my right hand and controller smacked the thumb of my left hand very hard like it was one of those balloons. I guess since I couldn’t see my hands, the natural instinct not to hurt yourself didn’t kick in and let’s just say, the results aren’t pretty. My thumb is still a bit swollen and bruised along the section of bone between the knuckle and the joint at the base. Fortunately, no joints were impacted and pain has been limited to contact. I’ve been keeping it in a splint to protect it from contact and just in case I damaged it more than it seems likely. That was my week. Hope your was much better!

At first glance, few would guess that Luna and Cullan Bodman are siblings. Cullan is efficient and serious while his younger sister Luna is a free spirit. When the two launch their furniture restoration shop/café—an offshoot of the family’s longtime antique business—in an up-and-coming arts center, little do they know their unique talents may be their only defense in a matter of life and death.
When Luna gets a strange sense about a piece Cullan just acquired, the two find themselves uniting to solve a mystery that has far-reaching consequences—never knowing there are some who’ll stop at nothing to claim what they believe is theirs. Despite their differences, Luna and Cullan know they can rely on each other—and this time, their lives may depend on it…
I came across this baking show from Canada’s Food Network – Great Chocolate Showdown and well, CHOCOLATE! Need I say more. I binged watched both seasons 😋
Then, yesterday, hubby and I tried the Turner and Hooch series on Disney+. It has sarcastic humor and a lovable drooly dog – what more can you want? The Turner in this show is the son of the Turner from the movie with Tom Hanks back in 1989. I like that it has the connection. I think it would appeal more to adults and maybe older kids, but I would consider it family-friendly. There are guns in it and violence, so if you are thinking of letting your kids watch it just be aware of that.
