Yep, this year, I turn 39.
I understand, for most women, even admitting they are knocking on 40’s door is a blasphemous act, but for me, I welcome it. After years of painful periods, entering perimenopause is something long awaited. Having studied natural health since 1994, I recognized the symptoms. I have to record how I feel each day, and adjust the things I eat, and the things I do accordingly. I already know that my hormones are going to be doing flips, and that weight loss is going become a little tougher until my hormones even out. I am ready for this, and I know how to deal with it.
I am also learning to let go of the frustration associated with trying to get my son motivated to do something. I can only give it to God and hope that He will instill in Paul a sense of motivation, and knowledge. He still, for some reason does not think that getting his GED is a priority. Oh, he has written and presented an essay to me to grade for grammar and punctuation, but it is on a book that, to my knowledge, he has not read. I will read it and grade it, but he is not in the house to go over the essay. He is at a friend’s house, and has been there for two weeks.
Until next time, God Bless…
