Bwaaaaaaaaaaaaa

I think I could handle Mother Nature's menopause thing if I wasn't being nailed to the wall with my own peri-menopause shit. Let's just say it's been a pretty lousy and stressful week.

I have found menopause to be so-o-o-o much easier than peri-menopause was, even with the hot flashes. Now that I am past that whole process, I love not having periods. I never really had cramps or moodiness, nor any other complaints other than forgetting when to expect it and never having enough tampons on hand, but it is so freeing to never have to think about that stuff again. But peri-menopause was, for me, such a rollercoaster of unpredictable changes in flow, cycles, etc., and it went on for years. So, I hear ya, but just wanted to say, it gets better!

Hunkering down...

I am on an email list from NYC, which sent me a "Hazardous Travel Advisory" due to 3 to 5 inches of snow expected in the wee hours tonight and tomorrow morning. It's been cold here all week, but I didn't realize snow was on the way til I got that email, LOL!

I was in southern Maine last night with The Hottie, and had to drive to Boston this morning... we had about 3" of snow, not fun in rush hour. More snow tonight.

miss pixi is off on a trip with friends for a week, and I am dogsitting for her. The Gentleman is coming over tomorrow night.

So in short I'm in pain, irritable, short tempered, and a grouch.

Thankfully BrigidsDaughter is a kind and loving wife and puts up with me, even when I'm like this.
Sorry to hear you're hurting so much, RW. I can feel your pain. After my daughter was born I had lost of dental problems and ended up getting them all yanked out. Hope you get to feeling better soon.

Doing better today. Taking IB to manage the pain in my teeth, and I actually had a pretty good time home alone last night. Now I'm feeling creative for the first time in ages and I've got A New Hope playing for background noise. I'd almost forgotten how much I adore the original three movies.

lolz. 3-5" here is just above a "dusting" but well below anything resembling a hazard. We'll call a "Winter Storm Warning" for 8"+ in a roughly 24 hour span, or if it gets stupidly cold. It's funny people's perception of snow depending on where they live. We're almost like the Inuit in that we have lots of ways of describing snow in a few words that are universally accepted across the region. Terms like "Lake Effecting" or "Thundersnow". I always get a laugh out of people from the South who go to school up here and their reactions to the snow.

Well, have you ever driven in NYC without snow? That's hazardous enough! It is so congested here, and drivers are crazy, and aggressive, yelling, speeding, honking horns all the time (even though they now have laws against it), while pedestrians ALWAYS jaywalk, trucks are double-parked, and cabbies are weaving in and out or stopping short to pick up a fare. We never wait on the curb, always far out into the lane. I think driving in the city is what bronco riding must be like. Add snow, heck even just rain, and it's ten times worse! Whenever I drive here, I am gripping the steering wheel and gritting my teeth in terror, LOL.

Drivers here are nutz!!!!1!!one!!1

I took a trip to NYC in college. From our tour bus, we saw a cop car hit a bus almost dead center. It was an odd experience not being able to tell where the lanes were. I preferred it when we walked or took the subway.

Today's been relatively quiet around here. I've spent most of the day playing Words with Friends while Runic Wolf preps for Friday's game. Weekends are when Wendigo's art RP group meets, so I probably won't talk to him again until tomorrow night. In the mean time I've got laundry to fold and a delicious spaghetti and Italian sausage dinner to make.
