Yeah, you probably get the blues on Mondays, but I get them on Fridays. Weekend is coming. Hubby is off. We usually have two days of eating, drinking, driving places and carrying-on. He is not quite ready to go vegetarian, so we have been eating veggie/vegan Mon-Fri, and only eating meat on weekends (he gets meat at lunchtimes during the week.) Sounds good, but the "meat" for me usually ends up being KFC Hot Wings, or the wings at the Boathouse (our fave weekend bar), or the Chili Lime Wings at T.J.'s, (you get the idea.....) "Drinks" means BOOZE. I used to drink mixed drinks, like a Rum & Coke or maybe a Mai Tai. Then I discovered that most of the mixers contained High Fructose Corn Syrup (of course the sodas do) and that was the Number One Ingredient I eliminated from my diet LAST January. So now, I just have a "shot" and drink ice water with it (always drinking ice water with my cocktails seems to keep hangovers at bay....it's been a while since I've had one!) And order Wings. I might have a glass of wine (I don't care too much for wine, but I'll drink it if I'm with a group of wine drinkers.) Beer? Bleeeeech! Carbonated horse-pee, if you ask me!
I've been on some discussion boards this morning talking about SLEEP. Sleep? Hmmm....I remember that from years ago.......I have a bad case of the menopause, and my nights are spent in a purposely-cold room with a fan blasting my face, even as my face and chest are pouring sweat, and I feel like I will just absolutely, spontaneously combust into flames right there on the bed.....I wonder if these jammies are flame-resistant?.......meanwhi
le, my legs and feet are FREEZING.....picking little icicles off my toes and melting them against the chimney-pot of my forehead. I guess if I die this way, the funeral director won't have anything to do....I'm gonna eventually cremate myself. Does anybody know a natural remedy for Debilitating Hot Flashes (I don't do synthetic hormone replacement, not going to, either....) Don't like....don't trust.....medications.
(Are ya supposed to blog on weekends? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm)
