What have I been up to? It's been such a strange and unsettled time for Jerry and I. Our downsizing plans are taking shape with the speed of a snowball going downhill. We've been cleaning and clearing with the goal of putting our home on the market and that is probably the most unsettling thing that I can think of at the moment. Whenever my things are packed and I'm in between homes I get a little crazy. Everyone notices it.
I've been having hot flashes all day and all night in the midst of this noble transformation of my entire freaking life. I've given up all wine and most of my caffeine out of sheer desperation to find THE vice that is responsible for causing me such misery. And I almost went for my doctor's throat last week when I begged her for hormones and she hesitated. She acquiesed and wrote me a script when I told her I would just have to go to another doctor. The whole scene would have had more impact had I not begun to cry.
But, I'm all right! Really, I am. The hormones are kicking in and I'm sleeping just a bit more soundly. Waking five or six times a night was just not doing much for me. And the downsizing plans are moving along well.
In the meantime Colorado is having a beautiful wet Spring. It hasn't been this green here for years. I'm reveling in this.
I've been able to see my girls and the grandkids from time to time. Baby Delilah is growing so much and she smells really good!
And yesterday my sweet husband took us on a Memorial Day picnic up to Lake Creek Trailhead. I love him.
