Hot Stuff

I was going to write a post about a garden party I attended at Griffins' Greenhouse and share the pictures of their beautiful garden but I'm too HOT.   I promise I will post about the party later but I can't think straight for the hot flashes.  I HATE MENOPAUSE!

I'm so tired of being tired and hot and sweaty and embarrassed.  I'm tired of having the boy in the grocery store look at me like I have some nasty contagious disease because my face is beet red, my hair is plastered to my head and sweat is literally dripping off my face as I ask him where to find the capers.

I am 50 years old.  If the normal aging processes aren't enough to make me feel unattractive, I've turned into the swamp monster from a B movie.  I am longing for snow but just because I want to get naked and burrow in it.  Please dear Lord, make this stop....

ahhh that feels better

good night,



  1. Ha ha ha ha ha! I can laugh because I'm past all that. ~ Maureen

  2. I'm going thru menopause also and I've found that exercise, especially cardio like the treadmill, lessens my hot flashes. I don't know why but it's been a huge help.

  3. Teetering on the edge of menopause and not looking forward to it as I am already a sweaty type.


Thanks for leaving a comment. I love hearing from you and getting to know you.
