So...they say a woman can lose several teaspoons...on average 4 Tablespoons and as much as 1 CUP of blood during her period. HUM......................I think I have lost over a cup already! And we are only in day number 2!!!! Starting to feel a bit dizzy. I guess you can get anemic. I will have to watch out.

So exciting.

Afraid to sneeze, cough or bend over now.

Well let the flood gates begin! Brother.....menopause is a crazy time to be sure! NO period since August 2004 caused me to be HOPEFUL I was DONE with my periods as I was approaching the ONE year mark. Well.....that is no longer a possibility as it all came back in FULL FORCE yesterday. Unbelievable force. I won't go into details.....

Snowing and cold today. About 23 now. Only to be a high of 34 today. Icy...bad roads. Keith came home last night and said there was a 14 car pile up on the highway I take. I decided to stay home. I am so thankful I have the ability to kind of flex my schedule around and do things like that. Keith said he could run down and pick up my tapes later. PLUS the rate I am going I would have had to take extra underwear, pants and probably EVEN SOCKS on that trip so it was best to stay home.

I have 62 items checked out at the library. I think I own the library! The girl there knows me so well she has my holds ready for me as soon as she sees me coming.

Nothing much else new. I watched the Abrams Report yesterday. Something about him I like and I enjoy watching the show. What's up with Michael Jackson's ex? She seems about as odd as he does.

American Idol....I don't bother voting anymore....have not since Ruben won that year instead of Clay Aiken..not that it hurt him any. But it is all rigged. Someone has started a web site now at for people to go vote for the WORST singer on the show to hopefully have them WIN the contest to SHOW the network up. I could not believe but checked and there was indeed a website and they were recommending everyone vote for Scott. He can sing well but out of the remaining group he is probably the worst. I like Bo Bice....he has a great sexy quality to his voice and can sing about anything and make it sound good. I hope he will win.

HUM..........not much else new. I need to get back to work. Noah is playing trains on the floor. He has a canker sore and says he does not want to talk sometimes so he shuts up and sits quietly. Poor kid...he has been through a lot.

Okay...I need to work.

Our neighbor man also came home yesterday. Now he has something wrong with him...primary hydrocephalus I believe. He had a VP SHUNT put in his head/brain some time back....but it has not helped him. He gets around like a very very old man ....has to shuffle his feet to walk if he can even do that. If he has to bend over and pick something up he will fall down...etc. He looks like he is drunk, or old or both. He is not that old and while I know he drinks from time to time he is not drunk. I think his shunt needs revised.

Anyway...he has been falling down a lot lately outside here. He will head to his car (YES HE IS STILL DRIVING AND SHOULD NOT BE) and shuffle his feet along....avoiding the steps as he goes along. He heads down the grass instead and wobbles and falls over. I have helped him up many times and so has Keith.

SO last night he comes home. I always watch to make sure he gets out of the car and up the steps okay. YES HE IS LIVING UPSTAIRS OF ALL PLACES. Anyway.....he got out of the car about 15 minutes later....he started walking up here..but apparently dropped something. Had to bend over and pick it up...and he fell over like someone blew too hard his way. No control catching himself. Now our other neighbor man was coming back from walking his son in the stroller (the couple we bought this condo from). They moved across the lot from this place. Anyway...thank goodness he came along and saw Floyd. There he lay in the a slug. Could not move...could not sit up...could not untwist his own legs or move them into a position where he could try to stand up. He would have NO way of getting up on his own. I was just getting ready to go down and see if I COULD help him get up which I doubted...but Damon saw him and asked if he needed help. He said he would need help if he were to ever get up. So Damon told him he would be right back. Meanwhile other neighbors are still doing their thing on their patios and balconies and ignoring Floyd laying this point fully extended with his head back up by the steps of the sidewalk. He was moaning and groaning. It was taking Damon forever to come back and Floyd must have felt totally humiliated laying out there like that waiting. Thank goodness it was not raining. Damon finally came back over by the time I had my shoes on and was heading down the stairs. I went back up inside.

It took Damon SEVERAL TRIES pulling Floyd up before he finally got him up. Then he had to carry all his stuff up for him AND help him make it up the steps. Floyd was all shaking and wobbling along. I have come right out and told him I did not think he should be driving anymore or probably living upstairs. I hope he will think about his and other's safety soon. This would have to be hard to face but it is dangerous now. A policeman came the other day and talked to him after he pulled into the lot and was upstairs. I saw the policeman get out and check out Floyd's car. He has damage to the front end and has had damage to the front end forever so we assume he was being checked out for a hit and run or someone must have seen him hit something with his car which he PROBABLY DID. He must have denied it as the policeman was not there long and Floyd shut his door and went back inside. So who knows. He almost hits our cars in the lot when he comes and goes as he cannot steer with his one hand or move his arm well. I wonder HOW he puts his feet on the brakes! Talk about dangerous.

And did you hear about the exploding frogs in Berlin? Over 1000 toads in some local pond there have blown up so much their stomachs explode! Like from some sick science fiction movie! It said they do not know what is causing it. ALL things checked so far have not proven to be causes. But they swell up more and more and then they explode. Can you imagine?

Hey there. I watched that second Bridget Jones movie and loved it. I TRIED watching the Incredibles and for some weird reason it really got on my nerves and seemed SOOO SLOW and I just did not have the patience to pursue it. Keith enjoyed it I guess but I was SO happy I did not go see it at the theater and waste the money on it as I was really disappointed in it.

Otherwise...been finally getting some much needed rain off and on. SO nice to have some showers as we don't normally get many. Today it has been in the 40s and 50s and now the sun is out again. I hope we get more rain tonight. I really enjoy it like I said. I turning into my dad or is this all menopausal or am I just getting older and crankier or all three or WHAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?????????????????????????

I was enjoying having the windows open a crack today while I did some laundry and stuff around the house...when I started hearing something...sounded like a mini motor in a motorcross race. We have a kid next door who HAS to be in his mid 20s or older who still lives with his mom and apparently does that. We see him all the time coming and going with motorcross CRAP. Anyway.....he apparently has hurt himself and is in a neck brace so for lack of better things to do...he was out in the PARKING LOT running this little motorized car back and forth and back and forth and BACK AND FORTH over and over and over again till it really got on my nerves. I slammed our patio door shut. It continued. I figured he was just going to have enough sense to test it and then move down the street to the park or tennis courts or somewhere PUBLIC to make NOISE. This is a convenant controlled place. BUT NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. No chance of that. No chance of him hearing me YELLING out my window at the top of my lungs either as the thing made too much noise! The sounds kept grating on my nerves more and more. I swear I was about to go down in my truck and back it up and try to RUN OVER THE THING!

I could only PRAY FOR IT TO CRASH...which it finally did! ALL was quiet in the world again. Amazing how GOOD silence sounds! I yelled out my window to "STOP IT!!" "NOT EVERYONE WANTS TO HEAR THAT!!" which I am sure was true. After giggling, standing, talking and giggling some more with the other neighbor man (who also seems weird)...they finally went in and it has been quiet since. My door is back open...but the stress is unreal!!

SO...I guess I will have to live in a remote area or something to totally escape knuckleheads like that from interfering with my peace and quite from time to time. If it is not one neighbor it seems like it is someone else. We are finally getting some problem people out of here soon as they are moving! YAHOOO. BUT then this man starts up. He is NOT a kid...he is late 20s or early 30s. Should know better but like most around here they could care less HOW things affect you.

AND yesterday at church. I took Noah with me to the Women's restroom as he had to go. Keith was busy. Anyway...a cranky old woman (could this have been a vision of me???) came in and asked "is that a boy?". I said "yes". (I KNEW what was coming next). She then asked "can't he use the Men's restroom?" I said "well first of all he is autistic and he is WITH ME. Since I cannot go into the MEN's RESTROOM he came in with me as I would NEVER let him go into a Men's restroom even in a church by himself!". She stood there dumbfounded or waiting for the information to PROCESS....and she finally said "Oh...well I guess I could understand that...things aren't the way they used to be are they?". I said "NO" and Noah finished and we walked out. I had heard about things like this happening to mothers before but it has never happened to me. Kind of rubbed me the wrong way and ticked me off too.

I had to LET IT GO though..and finally did about 8 hours later!! haha.

Oh many trials and tests and all pushing me to my limit and I am already pretty much at my limit.

Noah just bounced around too much on the sofa and spilled my hot coffee all over my computer table and almost on the keyboard. Well...guess it IS on the keyboard.
