Rainy Day & Peri-menopause


I’ll spare you the details, but it’s one of those peri-menopausal sort of days. I’m not depressed I just don’t have any energy, my lower back aches, and the only thing that sounds good to eat is chocolate. If you are thinking ‘wait, I thought she was going to spare us all the details’ trust me there was more I could have said that you wouldn’t want to hear.

I’m glad we are having rain but the combination of my physical body and the gloomy skies does make it harder to get moving. Sometimes I just love giving in to the desire to do nothing. I don’t take it for granted that I have that option. That my husband carries the burden of making sure we have a roof over our heads and money for the electricity that warms this home, is greatly appreciated. I’ve even learned to not feel too guilty when I think of how infrequently he can take a ‘do nothing’ day.

It’s a partnership right?! There are trade-offs. I carried our children in my body, he didn’t. I went through 24 hours of labor and months of recovery, he didn’t. I shop for food, bring it home, sort and store it, prepare and serve it, then clean up after we eat it and he graciously eats anything I put before him (except oatmeal or anything with a similar consistency). Ok, so I’m not counting how many times we are in a hurry or in-between grocery visits (or one of many other excuses I use), and so we eat out. He doesn’t even require me to make excuses. What a man.

Well, at least I made progress on my Constant Contact email newsletter. ddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddd

in case your wondering, the ds happened when I dosed off while sitting up at my computer and my left middle finger got heavy, I thought I would leave it to show how pathetic I am today. I might actually need a nap, maybe I’m fighting some horrendous virus but a couple of hours of sleep will rescue me. It could be true, good night (afternoon), tj
