{wednesday rewind} no. 42 - The Chores Episode

10/23/2019
More
We may be known these days as unmillennials, but at one time we were "latch-key" kids. And as such, most of us arrived home in the afternoons to man the fort either alone or with our siblings and very likely were met with a daily list of chores our parent or parents left for us. So when we find ourselves deep in parenting this new iGen generation and realizing that their idea of clean up is deleting files off their phone to make room for a new game, we gotta ask... is this okay? In today's...

10/16/2019
More
As a generation raised during the rise of cableTV, unmillennials may find themselves a little slower to "cut the cord" than their younger millennial counterparts. But the cost-savings and freedom of choice for channels make cord-cutting appealing to many customers, no matter their age. In today's episode, I interview Luke Buoma of Cord Cutters News and share with listeners the basics anyone needs to consider before cutting the cord, including: I round out this episode with some odds & ends...

Today's episode is one that I will never forget. It features "Lisa" as she details the story of her son's suicide attempts and what her family has been through since the first moment of his hospitalization.

He doesn't get invited to birthday parties. She says nobody wanted to sign her yearbook. He reports sitting alone most days at lunch. She can't tell you a single "good" thing that happened at school. Lessons about getting along as a kid used to be learned playing hide-and-seek in a neighbor's backyard or picking up a basketball game on the street corner. But as today's children spend more time indoors and on screens, many experts say it's hurting their development of social skills. As a...

The life of the unmillennial is clearly filled with some serious topics -- are you saving enough for retirement, have you reached the peak of your career and why do the aches/pains that used to disappear linger these days? Those are all worth topics to feature on the show, but that's absolutely NOT what we're discussing today. 'Cause a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do. And I gotta do eyelashes.

As unmillennials we've lived through our share of diet crazes. We've been told what to eat and what not to eat for weight loss, heart health, cancer prevention and more.
