Menopause Brain

Oh I hate this!! I fixed dinner tonight and put it in the oven only to have Rick tell me I had forgotten to turn the oven on! A week or so ago, I put rice in the rice cooker and forgot to turn it on. My brain is just so dang forgetful these days it makes me crazy. Not to mention I am a royal B lately! Urghhh. Do I go on estrogen and risk cancer or do I just live like this? This process takes year, will my brain get worse??

Today we went to the NICU reunion at the hospital Katie was born at. It was nice to see all the nurses who took so good care of her when she was there. We skipped church due to the party. Hannah has a sleepover last night and had a great time. She is not cranky so that is a good sign. Katie is always cranky after she sleeps over. Rest of the day has been relaxing. We took the leftovers from Aunt Virginia's estate to good will - we are done. No more garage sales and I will never have one again. I can finally park in my garage for the first time in a month - yipee!!

This week

Finally got around to posting pics from the DNC. Friday afternoon I got a phone call that one of my best friends sons passed away. What a shock - he was only 26. He had been sick but no one expected him to die. These last few days have been nothing but a blur. Went to the viewing tonight and it was just so sad. I just broke down and sobbed. Christine is doing so bad and so is her whole family. My heart just hurts so bad for her. The funeral is Friday and she will need to learn how to cope without him in her life. I know how hard this is going to be for her. I just wish I could take this pain away from her.

Has been while since I blogged, life just gets in the way. Trying desparately to get my house clean and it is not working with all the extra stuff from WYoming in my house and garage - can't wait until it is all gone.

Going to see Barack Obama accept the nomination tomorrow at Invesco Field with Hannah. I am so excited to be able to be there! Will post pics when I get them.

Really cranky today - guess my life has just been too messed up lately to be really happy. I feel like crawling under a rock and hiding for a few months!

Urgghhh somedays I wish my children were all grown up so I wouldn't have this homework challenge every day. Katie is getting too social I wants to come home and play and talk, talk, talk on the phone so it is such a battle to get her to do her homework. I just keep remembering the country song where it states I will miss these days and hoping it is true!

Katie was doing her homework and came in crying. She was having to use a sentence with prevent in it and said I wish I could have prevented Aunt Virginia from dying. How sensitive she is! I remember Becky was about the same age as Katie when Jeremy died and she balled her eyes out at the funeral. Guess this is such a tender age to deal with death. I keep telling Katie Aunt Virginia was 90 and she is better off now. She just doesn't grasp that concept yet.

Work was busy today and then I come home to homework hell. Oh well, I will miss these days!

Rain, rain and more rain

It has been raining for two days now and I am ready for sun and warm! Remind me of that when I am complaining later this week when it is up to 90 again! Had a garage sale today in the rain. Could not put half of the stuff out as there was no room in the garage! Will do another one next week when it is warm again. Need to get rid of Aunt Virginia's stuff so I can park in the garage again!

The girls went to the indoor swimming pool with their friend since the outdoor was obviously closed. Katie got the nerve finally to jump off the high dive and loved it! Hannah the fish did it too! They are begging for a sleepover tonight but not when we have church tomorrow - mean mommy!

Posted items on ebay for the first time today. Was kind of fun!
