Asphalt Seasickness........

So yesterday, (Saturday), I decided to be Super cool Mom and take Wolverine for his very first driving lesson.

Did you just fall out laughing? Because I knew it was going to be hellish before it started, but hey...he's got to learn how to drive sometime and since I'm the only biological parent he has in a 900 mile radius - this task falls on me too. I just didn't think it out all the way or I probably would have waited until I didn't have a raging sinus infection and my equilibrium was back up to par. But I didn't, so you get a funny story!

After driving all over Hell and back looking for a parking lot big enough to accommodate such a lesson, we finally found one after Mr.Man sent a text saying, "hey why don't you guys try this one?" Of course he was correct in thinking of this particular parking lot because it not only gave us enough of a straight away to practice "stop and go's" but also figure 8's (ugh), and Nascar style left turns and right turns.

Wolverine did great! Absolutely swimmingly for his time to ever be behind the wheel and have to use the gas and brake. Mom, yeah....uh boy...I was green after the second Nascar Left turn lap and then was really wanting my bed and bucket by the time we finished practicing the stop and go's.

The good thing is he feels proud and accomplished. And I feel good that he feels that way.

Not sure when Lesson 2 will commence, but it won't be today. Mom needs some recovery time. *haha*

mucho mas loco amore,

I'm on week 3 of Amberen, (hormone replacement therapy), to re-balance my hormones since my hysterectomy last April and to bring back my sanity.

So far I feel good about it overall. The only side effect I can feel that I'm having is the hot flash issue. I don't remember having this issue before the Amberen, though I could be wrong and just don't remember them like this because I was on Celexa at the time. (Everything on Celexa is nothing like it "really" is. It made me way too calm and numbed out about everything.)

So far so good. Emotionally I feel a LOT better. I'm happier more often than I am depressed. I think the depression in week 1 and 2 were more contributed from coming off the Celexa cold, rather than being a true depression. Not to say that I don't still suffer from real depression episodes, or climate/environmental depressions but they haven't seemed to be as often as they were prior to the Celexa.

I'm slightly victimized on the hyper side of things, but I do have adult ADHD. I prefer to be non-medicated though I have to force myself to slow down. 90 miles an hour is not anything unusual for me at all like this without meds. But I'm more organized, less willing to procrastinate, and more motivated to get to things, and see something through without moving on until its finished first. Oh yeah, and did I mention bluntly honest about how I feel and view things? Yeah, sometimes even brutal though I don’t mean to be. My BS filter seems to have slipped and I’m not real sure I’m going to put it back in place; not anytime soon anyway.I'm very much ME...someone I haven't been in a really long time. Been a long time and I needed that!

Now if the weight issue would right itself, and I think it will, then all will be well. From how I feel about the results so far and the promised effects of the Amberen on this in the months to come I’m very exicted and looking forward to more good things.

Let's see what month two on the Amberen brings. As of this moment, I give this product both thumbs up and ROCK ON signs \m/. I would definitely recommend this product to any woman/girl who suffers from any type of hormonal imbalance or PMS/PMDD. The changes I have experienced have been phenomenal.

Rock On Amberen! \m/ :D \m/

Please be patient with me. It's been a ba-Jillion years since I've written much of anything and definitely longer since I had to figure out templates, layouts, picture uploading, ETC.

GBE2: Time

Time is that one precious resource we all seem to think we have an over abundance of and realize too late that there was/is never enough.

It seems like this year has brought a lot of loss with losing loved ones and friends suddenly without the time to say Goodbye, or that last "I love you". So today I'm taking the time to tell those I care about how I feel.

If you are reading this, I love you and am blessed that you are in my life in whatever capacity God has seen fit to place you in. I appreciate you and the countless things you've done and continue to do in the name of Friendship. You've kicked my butt when I needed it, let me cry on your shoulder, wiped my tears, gave me hugs, and smiles. Laughed even though something I may have done or said really wasn't all that funny, and made me feel like Superwoman when I needed to keep putting one foot in front of the other but couldn't find the "S" that's supposed to be on my chest, or the motivation to do it. You've never let me down or turned your back on me even if at the time I thought you did. You've watched me go through some difficult times, some pretty tough life lessons, and the millions of times I've been single, then not single, then single again, to by  God I'm staying "Not Single" because I'm stupid if I let this man out of my life. You let me ride your motorcycle when I had to let mine go, you understand why I need to ride, and you allowed me to keep my sanity. you welcomed me into your community and lives and made me feel like I have a home away from home to belong to. You've let me love your family in the absence of my own. And You've had a shot or 40 with me, a beer, a glass of wine, or just pulled over so I didn't puke in your car.

I could go on and on and on...but you know what you've done and I want you to know that I know it too, and I love you for it.

So if for some reason you or I were to leave this Earth anytime soon....know that I love you for you, for your friendship, for being a part of my life and my every day.

Know that you are important enough for me to take the time to tell you so--
