I'm at the age in a woman's life where menopause begins. I just turned 50. My monthly friend stopped showing up regularly for about a year or two now. Lately I don't even remember when it last appeared. The doctor said that you can't say you are in menopause until you go an entire year without menstruating. I was just getting into that point and BAM, she shows up today while I'm at work!! Gotta luv it! Of course I have no feminine protection at home so I had to run to the local CVS. I really didn't want to buy a big box and really didn't want to pay top $$ for the premium brands. I picked up the generic CVS brands and thought "what a shame, you may never get a period again and you're going to go out with cheapy tampons?" I bought the cheap ones anyway but I still felt a little bad. I should do a celebration or something. I wonder why we women don't celebrate the time in our lives when we pass from our child bearing years into freedom? It's sad in a way to think that every egg we were born with is now gone. The jar is empty. On the other hand, it's a time to acknowledge a new beginning, a passing of the torch to the next generation of mothers and I am looking forward to the next chapter of life. I'm also hoping that I won't need to buy another box of cheap tampons again!
Mr Saylor and Sgt Buzzkill are going hunting this Saturday so I'll have the house to myself. I've got some projects planned.
This is the beginning of a fall project I will be doing. Can't wait to post the finished pics.
Some heavy duty cleaning. I'm going to wash down my kitchen cabinets.
This is part of another painting project I have planned. I think it's going to be fun.
My sister is coming by on Saturday to do some crafts. Miss Saylor is coming in from the city to go to a Nascar race with her bf so I'll get to spend some time with her.
The weather is supposed to be in the 70's and I plan to spend some time in the garden cleaning things up.
All in all it will end up being a working/crafting weekend.
