I Remembered!

I woke up the other night at 3 am and pondered what it was that I had atop my Blogster page... it was a saying that had randomly come into my brain and I remember LOVING it, so I was distraught that I couldn't remember. Alas, I went back to Blogster to no avail. Everything is different there!

Never the less, my mind persisted. It is now back in my brain where it belongs. I somehow just remembered it, which is extraordinary for this brain!

I am worried about people in Richmond VA today. I saw the news and there are SO MANY GUNS and there is SO MUCH CAMOUFLAGE it's insane. I am part of the local Mom's Demand Action group. A lot of us were planning on being there to lobby, alas we were told by the chapter to NOT go for our own safety. It's insane.There have been death threats in the name of the 2nd amendment which MAKES NO LOGICAL SENSE TO ME. If you threaten to kill people opposed to your viewpoint why would you think it would be viewed as non threatening??? Insanity. This whole planet is insane. I try not to think about it.

Alright ladies, this is for you. Boys feel free to scroll past this paragraph (John I think you are the only boy who reads this anyways) but perimenapause is NO JOKE. I am so very over this 30+ year monthly punishment... and now it has a mind of it's own more fierce than ever! I try to unload my body's wrath on Ron but he doesn't get it of course, and his sympathy doesn't seem to cover all the ground I feel it should. I actually joined some facebook groups on the topic and I am loving hearing others suffer like me. Isn't that terrible? It's comforting knowing I am not alone... My MIL in law assured me that one day hers was just gone and it was all unicorns and rainbows. It took some effort to keep my hand at my side. My mother also said she doesn't remember but she was glad it was gone. That input is what made me seek out others that might be going through a bit more... And I have found them.

Lastly, I'd like to present the state of my living room. Please note that we have a playroom, not far away at all, a mere few steps, in which the kids can destroy whatever they want at their leisure. Alas hubby and I seek refuge in the living room for the most part. Funny thing about kids is that they want to be with you (at this age, and I have been told to enjoy it). So they often bring toys into the living room which is usually ok because they are on the small side. Please enjoy the latest creation from the boy Sawyer - it is so massive it spans the living room AND dining room!!! Clutter clutter clutter. It tries to drive me insane but I am holding back... but it is true it's a short drive. Anyhow, Happy MLK day, I wish the man was still alive. And I leave you with this creation:

When I asked about my mother's experience with "the change of life" I was told she didn't go through any of that awful stuff. So how come I remember the whole family walking on eggshells, around her, through my late teens?

I hate guns and I have lived all these years without being threatened with evil men with guns but I live in an open carry state. That is ridiculous. And as for menopause, I hate to tell you that it just stopped at age 50 without side effects. Sawyer's creation is awesome.
enjoy while you can. We made a toy sweep every night at five and although I hate to admit it, because it is out of fashion, I fed the kids shortly after so my husband and I could have dinner in peace.

Smart. smart lady. The kiddos generally eat on their own aside from dinner. I try to make it a family meal, but no one eats the same things so it gets frustrating .
Sawyer can be quite creative! Actually they both can. It just infringes on my sense of calm when surrounded by chaos.
I'm envious of your menopause - how weird does that sound?

Well, you had me wondering what it was on Blogster that you couldn't remember and then you remembered and then you didn't say what it was. I mean if you loved it, shouldn't we know what it was? No fair.

Inside the Realm of Insomniac Dreams. It probably means nothing to most, if not all. I just loved it for me!!! Still do.

The gun nuts were apparently well behaved. This is a good thing I suppose, but the story will be something to the effect of 22 thousand gun totin' law-abiding citizens and only 1 arrest. If Obama had taken there guns like they thought he would this wouldn't be an issue.

I am glad they were "good". It does beg the question - what if they had been another color? I feel like it would have been shut down pretty darn quick.

The kids responsible for this creation know way too much about traffic jams. It looks like rush hour into a large city. About peri and post-menopausal stuff, it really threw me a curve too. I didn't know what was going on, because I'd never heard of women saying they had pain. But by writing my symptoms in short careful phrases I was able to search online and find out there was a name for it.

We live outside of DC and we travel a lot, so the kiddos are familiar with traffic!
I am sorry you didn't even have a name for it! I hadn't heard of it until recently, but there is info out there which is helpful.
