January 4...

Monday, Monday...
Wow. The holidays flew by me, and I can't believe I haven't sat down to just do some writing. Or blogging. I have decided, though, that I need to do more, because I feel like I have lost my writing edge--not preaching every week has seriously hindered what I used to do fairly well.

But, for today, I don't have much to say. My best thoughts seem to wake me up in the middle of the night...and when I remember them in the morning they don't seem nearly as interesting. Maybe that's why they are called dreams!

I am taking the day off...we have started a bathroom remodel and it is very, very, very loud and freaking all of us out--the animals and me. It's a little disconcerting to sit through the pounding and see your bathroom carried outside two five pound buckets at a time. Of course, when those walls come down, more issues emerge. Such as---thin walls, pipes where you hoped you didn't have them and no vents where you need to have them. That all adds up to: MORE MONEY and MORE DAYS without a shower. Go the the gym you say? Hah! I don't have a membership but perhaps this is the month. I hear there are specials.

January is looking like it will be fairly full and busy. How is that possible?

What else. Oh. Maybe this is TMI, but I thought peri-menopause meant menses less often. I am currently on a 20 day schedule. Can that be right? I find it a little irritating. Oh well.

OH!!! The biggest, loveliest thing of all is that Beloved and I celebrate 7 years of commitment TODAY. Go us!

Off to scavenge for lunch.


  1. Well, perhaps TMI here, too, but BEFORE I ended my two years of misery with a hysterectomy in July (and have been oh so much happier in that regard)...I could count on complete irregularity - a few months of every 20 days, then 6 weeks off, then hemoraging for 7 days - like don't leave the house...better yet, don't leave the bathroom, then back to every 20 days...and so on. For two years...

    And this my friend is what the dr. called normal perimenapausal - or so the blood work for my hormonal level indicated...normal. have my total and complete empathy.

  2. Oh I feel ya on the whole peri-menapausal thing. I am as hormonal now as when I was a teenager. My acne is worse than when I was a teenager. Sorry if this is TMI.

  3. congratulations! (not on the 20 days part, on the 7 years part :))

  4. Wonderful!!! Congrats on 7 years!!!!

    Perimenopause, etc? I'm just going to skip that, thanks. :)
