Ok Ladies,

I'm sitting here feeling oncoming symptoms of pre-pms. It is really not a good thing when preventive measures, to avoid 'most' of the discomforts, are not working. What is a girl to do? It's like knowing why you feel the way you do, but being totally unable to do anything about it while, all the time, you are being effected by it....depressed, in pain, bloated, irritable, etc. All you can tell yourself is, "Oh, it's just that time of the month." Then spend the next 3 to 7 days dealing with it!....Ugh! All this while running a child care!

Those over-the-counter pills have never worked for me. Unfortunately, what does work is that of two heating pads, one on the front and one on my back, and laying down. After a day and a half of that, I'm usually good to go. Moltrin or Extra Strength Tylenol helps with the pain but not enough.

Okay, okay... I got that out and off my chest. Now it's time to go deal with it. I'm still in the "pre"! I just had a huge cup of hot, lemon tea. Oh yeah, I'm fighting a cold too. Time to put everything in slow, minimum gear and take it one step at a time.
Gotta do this thing, ladies!

1. I enjoy counseling with people to help them see a different perspective.

2. I totally love my family even though they drive me crazy sometimes

3. I am disappointed in myself because I am afraid to start new projects for fear of not completing them

4. I really do enjoy crafts. I was very crafty in my earlier life i.e. drawing, crotcheting, gardening, etc.

5. Children are awesome little humans that need a lot of direction with tender love and care...and a smigdeon of discipline :)

Pets are awesome too because they are so loyal and can make us feel good

7. I want to thank KT for sending me my first blogger's award!

Here's my first time....

1. I look forward to Linda and Her Twaddle blog because of her light hearted honesty about the family and her world.

2. KT's Sassy Blog is filled with energy and exploration that should we should never let end in our lives.

3. I can really, really relate to Fat, Frumpy and Fifty. I go through many of the same phases in my life. Learning to embrace them.

4. I find A Working Mother's Chatter to be so calm and sweet as she adores being a mother to her toddler son with a new little one on the way.

5. I admire Elvie Studio for all her creativity and enthusiasm for life
