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
