Go ahead.  You can hum David Bowie’s song for this post.  I am. 

I have been back home for 3 weeks.  It was…well, it just was.  Twisted Sister turned on the air to get it cool before I got home.  Quit working.  The day I got home I had to go buy a new air conditioner.  Yay me.  My garden was full of weeds.  I was gone for two months.  A lot can happen in a garden in two months. 

I decided to make some changes in my life.  I am trying to quit smoking.  So far….just cut it in half not stopped.  I started taking my vitamins every morning.  I kind of got out of that habit.  I started walking a couple of days ago.  I didn’t walk today because my shins were bothering me a bit and I knew I would be standing a lot today.  But I didn’t.  I was trying to spray the yard for fleas but stopped because it REALLY looked like it was going to rain this time.  If it doesn’t I will be p’d. 

So I am feeling better physically and mentally.  Oh I forgot to mention that I haven’t had a menstrual cycle since April 11.  Now I know it probably isn’t the best subject for a blog that gets posted to my facebook but…I REALLY wanted to shout from the roof tops.  I am so thrilled. 

I had a couple of days where I felt more emotional than normal.  Then I started experiencing mild hot flashes.  I barely broke into a sweat.  It happened on and off all day for a couple of days.  It got a little bit irritating.  After hearing of other peoples experiences I am super lucky.  Hopefully it will stay that way.

So I am trying to be a more positive person.  Even though there are a lot of negative things going on in my life.  No job.  No money. No shopping. No job. No money.  You get the point.  There are other changes I have made in my life.  Other people just don’t know about it yet and it is too personal to talk about just yet.  What?  Yeah.  I know.  How much more personal can I get talking about menopause?  Well it involves other people so that is how personal it is. 

I joined an Art Association and have committed to selling my jewelry and other items at a local market on July 10.  This puts me on a timeline and forces me to get busy.  Hopefully I will sell some things there. If not Etsy here I come or…I will send it to my daughter for a jewelry party.  She has a TON of girlfriends.  And they like to shop.  So cocktails and jewelry….a real plan.

I am also sending out my resume.  So far that has not worked for me.  It feels very odd to me because I have never ever had a problem finding work.   On the 12th I plan to start marketing as well.  If anyone is in need of a PEO let me know.

So those are a few changes in my life.  Hopefully I will have more interesting things to talk about in the future.  And more often. 

Hugs and chocolate kisses

    This sounds terrible but I’ve actually been praying for menopause. I’m so tired of having a period every. single. month. since I was 10 (except when I was pregnant of course). I’m glad yours has been easy so far…let’s keep hoping it stays that way! If I was there I would weed for you. I love working in the garden :) Love ya doll!
