OK MEN…move along…go to the next blog…this one’s not for you.
Unless you want to know what really goes on in a woman’s mind during the lovely process we affectionately call menopause.
If that word alone doesn’t send up the flares for you, let me reword it…MEN-O-PAUSE!
Pause before you speak men…or smile…definitely don’t smirk!
Keep your eyes down…move along…keep walking.
Unless she yells STOP!
Then just acknowledge with a “Yes, Dear” to every question.
How on earth, do you say, could such a young woman such as myself have this insight?
I told you…eyes down!
Yup. It’s that time.
I’m flashing…I’m CRABBY…I want to smack somebody.
And I’m not a physical person!!! Really! Read my last blog!
You’d think there was a bit of a halo over my head!
Well, let me tell you…that halo’s tilted today!
Here I was … going through my day … actually having a nice little day … when, WHAM!
I’ve been able to laugh about the hot flashes and other symptoms up until now, but where on earth did the crabbiness come from?
Oh….I know…I really do…but I’m not sure just how much I want to share on this here blog…
You women that have been through it know…
We just all of a sudden go a little crazy…
I used to read about it and think…no…I’m fairly even tempered…I don’t think I’ll go through that.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA…and then God laughed.
Remember that Eve thing? Well…here you have it!
God’s not vindictive…I’m sure of this…however, I do think He has a sense of humor…
As they say…how else do you explain a platypus?
And some of the symptoms of menopause?
What else can bring a calm, sane woman – filled with God’s peace…
To start tearing off her sweater and ripping off her scarf – pulling her long sleeves up – everything she can respectfully do in a church basement while she eats her fish fry meal.
Yes that was me tonight.
I’ve been layering with scarves for years…
I may have to start with a tank top and layer on from there…
Do you think anyone will say anything if I strip down to a tank top (and yes, pants) in the middle of winter?
Do you think they’d dare?
Not with “THE LOOK” I’ll give them…
Breathe, Patty, Breathe…
God’s Grace, God’s Grace, I NEED God’s Grace…
And a glass of wine…and chocolate…
Have a good night ladies!
And men – remember MEN-O-PAUSE!
