5th Wheels and Menopause

IMG_0301
A random picture that I took. 

Writing on the weekend has become a challenge for me. I guess it’s because Hubs is home. Also … the past two Saturday’s, we have been driving an hour and half to two hours away to go look at different 5th wheels.

This past Saturday, we drove to see a used one. It was only about a year old and hardly used. It was in great condition. The only problem was that for the price that the guy wanted for it… we can buy a brand new one! He was unwilling to negotiate. Sooo… our hunt continues.

 

The trip to go see that one wasn’t a total waste of time, thankfully. We now know EXACTLY which 5th wheel we want!! I think we’ve been looking at them for almost a year now!

 

Anyway…

 

Business with Poshmark has been slower this week. I dropped most of my prices to hopefully get some sales. We’ll see.

 

My friend Ele brought some things to church for me to sell for her. So… I will be busy preparing and listing those items. I also have a few more of my own things, too.

 

My daughter Ansley and my sweet granddaughter, Rosey are coming on Wednesday! YAY!!! It’s going to be a good week, but also a VERY busy one!


Journal Entry: Monday – March 16, 2015

I have a headache this morning!! I’m sure that it’s sinus pressure, though.

I must quit eating so many CARBS!!! I feel SO bloated and uncomfortable!! It’s my own fault. I know I feel totally unmotivated. I also feel tearful and depressed. I feel SO OUT OF WHACK!!! I want to feel good again! UGH. I really should cut out the carbs and see if it helps.

I need a good cry, but Hubs is home and I don’t want him to hear me. 

Why am I all “screwed up”???? I just want to be happy and feel good and… have ENERGY! I am such a mess.

MENOPAUSE SUCKS!!!

It would have been nice if someone had told me how horrible it could be! I know that all women go through it different, but mine is HORRIBLE!!!!

Maybe mine is bad because I have Hashi’s, too?? Hmmm…. I wonder.

LUCKY!!!!

Sorry about not writing yesterday. I was EXTREMELY busy!! — Which is a GOOD thing!!

I was busy trying to finish up listing all of the clothes that my friend Katie dropped by last Monday. (She had 12 pieces and it took me aaaallllllll week to get them prepared, photographed, inventoried and listed! Whew!!! I have 3 (maybe 4!) more people that will be giving me items soon, as well. I better step up my game!!

One thing I learned yesterday was that you need to make sure that your PayPal account is set to go WAY before you sell anything on eBay!!! Geeezzzzzz. Took me half the morning to get that straightened out! And… I still can’t pocket the money yet, because I have to wait however many days for it to be set up through my bank. UGH!!! Oh well. I’ll survive. It was just a nightmare there for a bit. Hopefully…. once I get all that set up, eBay will be worth the effort along with my Poshmark!

I guess you’re probably wondering what I sold on eBay, huh? Haha…. 😉

Well… that story will be coming along as I share my journal writings with you. It has absolutely nothing to do with my Hashi’s, but I plan to share that whole YEAR that I wasted trying to do something and failed MISERABLY!! I mean… BIG TIME, FAILED!!

Anyway…


Journal Entry: Saturday – March 7, 2015

That stupid sleep medication is NOT helping me at all!! I woke up every hour last night! I did (somehow) sleep more hours, though. But…. ya… I don’t like that medicine. I am going to try and sleep without it tonight. (This is interesting. I eventually took myself off of this medication, but now… just within the last month, or so… I’m back on it!! haha!!)

It looks like Mandy will be hired by the airline. Her exam went well. We aren’t sure just “where” she will be starting out yet, though. She mentioned DETROIT, though. Yikes! 

Journal Entry: Monday – March 9, 2015 

I woke up this morning with a POUNDING headache!! UGH!!! 

I spent part of my day reading through my journals from 2012. That was a rough year and I was terribly depressed!!  (Interesting. Here I thought the past two years – 2015 & 2016 – were my most depressed years!) I’ve been trying to read through my journals to pin-point a time when all of my peri-menopause symptoms started. I’m still not clear about it, but I’m thinking that it all started somewhere between 2010-2012. 

Interesting (again). That is 8-10 years that I have been dealing with this CRAP!!  But… through all of my reading and researching , I do remember reading that it lasts for about 10 years, soooo…. that makes sense.

For any of you GUYS reading this…. I apologize.

Oh wait. —– NO I DON’T!!!

Instead… I want to say….. LUCKY!!
