Today’s topic is the weather. Why? Well, because the seasons are changing again and everyone wants to comment on how much rain we are getting or if it has started to snow yet in Canada. Well, I for one would welcome the snow right about now. Remember my online magazine interview? When I said I missed snow in Canada and then felt like an idiot for saying that, well…I take it back.
I take 100% of it all back! Do you wanna know why? It is a four letter word that should only have four letters. It’s called MENOPAUSE!
Today in Genoa, the weather was a balmy, sweaty, sticky 20 degrees Celsius with a misty, yucky, how the hell am I supposed to dress in this crap kinda rain. Yep! I want snow and 1 degree Celsius like it is in Canada right now. I also want to run outside naked in it too.
Feck! I will be 48 in January and this menopause crap is already driving me nutso. Mama said I should go see a doctor to get some drugs because otherwise I may get osteoporosis, (or a violent mood swing and kill her son for leaving the toilet seat up again…just kidding)blah blah blah. My mom said I should go homeopathic because the drugs cause cancer. She also suggested that I go online to see what foods I should and shouldn’t eat too. I did that and you wanna know what it says? AVOID CAFFIENE, CHOCOLATE AND WINE! WHAAAAAA! Not happening…EVAH!
I told Elora (she is in her 30’s and pregnant), that I had not had a period in two months and she wrote back, “well you know older people can sometimes get pregnant too” (lets just say lucky for her that she now lives in the UK or otherwise I might have gone postal on her for that smart arse remark). She suggested I take a test, I replied like a typical Genovese (they are known to be really cheap) that I wouldn’t think of wasting €10 on a home pregnancy test when I get enough hot flashes to heat up a hot air balloon over Tuscany. Sheesh!
Okay, so that is my rant for today. I have become a big fan of t-shirts at UPIM and the upside is that at least my husband seems happy that I no longer try to warm up my cold feet on his warm ones 🙂
Enjoy the pic of me and Coco…she has been a real cuddle bug since we got back to the city. Lucky for her she is so soft and cute and about the only one I have not yelled at this week even when she vomited on my clean floor. I just looked at her and said “why?” Feck.
