I wait to take down the decorations till Epiphany on the 6th. I love the decorations, they cheer me so but I always feel relieved when they are down too and the house feels bigger. I do use my "Christmas" and winter mugs until end of February. When we moved here I was amazed to find we owned 60 mugs! emoticon I divided them into 4 sets and change them out every 3 months. It keeps them clean and brings a change in the decor 4 times a year! emoticon

I've been going on those snowy cold walks lately, too, as our dog loves the white stuff. The other day she had her nose to the ground so much that a passerby commented to me that she was on the trail of a hot one! Took me a minute to figure out what he meant.

I squeezed in a walk before dark, but it got COLD out while gone (36 degrees). I'm trying to warm up now and SPARKING!

Happy Sunday!

I am sand castle building challenged. And, I live by the beach!! Finally found a library book on how to make them, when I saw children making better castles than me! LOL

I'm slowly putting away the Christmas stuff i.e. Santa's hat. I can keep out my holiday dishes until after February. :-)

Wondering how the after Christmas rush is around your place? Have you taken your tree down yet? I only put up minimal decorations, and will take them down next week sometimes. Not in any hurry about it. Doesn't matter. Being sick, and son needing to use the car for work.....I've been confined to the house pretty much. Didn't like the snowstorms (for worrying about son having to drive in it) BUT appreciated the snow for giving me a workout to do....I've shoveled snow a few times. Tried to make a snowman yesterday, but it was the wrong kind of snow after all. I am snowman challenged. Someday MAYBE I will get one right.

Sounds like a successful dinner to me! Congrats. We had an unexpected extra person which let my son cook himself some chicken as he doesn't like turkey! All were happy.

It's the day after Christmas! Hope you all survived emoticon and enjoyed your day!

I ended up fixing a big feast, after all. It was very simple, actually. DH saw a huge pre-cooked & sliced brisket at the big box store, and started drooling. Said, "That's what I REALLY want for Christmas dinner. I served it up the same way a local restaurant does, with all the same sides. Admittedly, I stuck with simple and used mixes & cans.....pork & beans, mac-a-cheese, julienne potatoes, and a veggie. All was very good, and not TOO much trouble to put together. I've still been sick, but DH said last night that I'm starting to get my color back. Yeh, it was a whopper of a bad cough. Thank goodness for cold meds. There is lots of extra brisket, but I had divided that up into thirds and froze the other sections. DH requested it served at New Years. I gave him a sideways look. emoticon

Lnsy, It's too late for this year but next year. I always save and freeze some choice cuts of turkey and dressing. Then I just have to reheat and add a relish tray. I also make my mom's fruit salad for dessert instead of pie etc. Slightly healthier.

I do like the chili idea. Another quick meal is pancakes, ham, bacon, or sausage, and eggs. I use a fresh banana instead of syrup and butter.

Hope that helps.

DEBBY: Chili sounds like a good idea w/ some corn bread.

I find that cooking is never done. Seems like I can't keep up w/ it.

Can you order out? Can someone do takeout?

Linsey, I do chili in the crockpot. Used to do a big meal, but nobody wants a big meal anymore. Chili is easy and they can eat whenever.

The laundry is never ending, especially with a dog that sheds all year round. Plus, when DS & DD came home this month, they brought lots of stuff with them. Baskets are everywhere right now.

I gave doggy a bath today. Shew, that was a chore. But she feels & smells better now. emoticon

Am I ready for Christmas? No. Don't even know what I'm fixing for dinner that day. Any ideas for something simple? I've been sick and doing as little as possible.

Brr cold this morning -- 12*. We never hang laundry outside in the winter, unless you want stiff jeans. Seriously, laundry seems to be an endless thing, along with dishes.

Elisa, I had to use the dryer last week or the laundry would have frozen! We got down to 8 last night and only up to 34!

Supposedly, the Japanese used to make their houses from wood and paper screens as they were easy to replace after an earthquake. However, a book I am reading written in the 1800's says they were prone to fire and not very warm. emoticon

Ah, the Joy of laughter inspite of!

As I was hanging wet laundry on the line, I'm thinking it is the COLDEST it's been in a long time. Thank God, no blizzard. We are soooo not prepared for things like that.

In fact, our tiny house used to be a garage. Poorly insulated, etc. We are doing the best we can with what we have to work with, but it doesn't seem to be enough.

I heard that people is southern CA used to make houses out of cardboard. And it was just fine.

I thought I had gone a whole year without my period. Then there are times when I'm entirely not sure of WHAT is going on. I think the periods may have been so light that they were barely noticeable (we're talking just a tiny pink tint on TP). So, then, I really do no know. Sorry for the TMI.

Currently have a terrible cough and don't feel quite like myself at all. emoticon

7 months free of my period - hopeful that I've seen the last of it!

I believe in myself, I am a strong woman. I will reach my goals, NOTHING & NOBODY will hold me down. I will live my life with integrity and intention. I will set a good example for my daughters and my son. I will be a woman that makes my grand children proud when they look at pictures of me long after I've left this earth.

I have managed to catch the cold that others in my family have had the last 2 weeks. It's a cough & fever. Slept most of the day, yesterday. Taking it easy today, too. But, DH & I did get groceries in the early morning while it was still dark. It felt a little like an adventure! LOL. Not necessarily ready for Christmas. Maybe just a little.

Sunny,
I think night sweats are heavier hot flashes. Many women wake up just drenched; bad enough to have to change nightgowns and sheets. I wake up and then get really warm but not sweaty. However, I have never been a heavy perspirer (sp?) Actually, I can't tell if the hot flash wakes me or I wake and then get hot. Either way I wake up about 3 times a night. I would expect them to be worse in summer as Elisa said but...that's what's strange!

I do get hot flashes (warm feelings where I have to take my overshirt off) during the day but I don't mind them. I'm usually cold and have always joked that hot flashes would be nice to warm me up. emoticon

Are night sweats the same thing as hot flashes? So far, I've only had night sweats - probably more than a year. And they are not predictable in strength or when they happen - probably because I'm asleep - LOL.

Dear Sunnyside,

Sleep really makes a difference to me too.

Also, I've noticed that my hot flashes are getting worse since the outside weather got cooler! Sounds crazy to me. I keep my house the same temperature I did in the fall but....

We haven't had measurable snow yet here in the Milwaukee area - maybe Thursday.

Debby - just read your blog - glad you enjoyed your trip, seeing your child and being at the concert.

Sleep affects me so much - getting a good night's sleep, plus some cardio and good food really works well for me.

DH and I ran/walked 4.8 miles outside today - felt really, really good!

Just finished reading a Christmas book where main characters lived and worked by a snowy mountain. The special clothes they had to wear! The special vehicles! The extra survival stuff they had to learn and take with them. NO WAY! No THANKS!

I can sure relate to that, SunnySide! I think I need to just jump right back on the bandwagon and proceed as if I never jumped off. I think once I do that, all will fall into place and I will be a happier person with myself. emoticon

I have lots of long distance family members, too. I know how you feel :/ I've made it simpler the last few years and sent my extended family scrapbook pages of an assortment of pix. I just finished those today and need to get notes written for them, so I can get them sent out. I'm halfway done with things I need to do. I've mailed out most of my Christmas cards; forgot to put return labels on many of them. OOPS. emoticon Starting to feel a LITTLE less stressed about it all. I have to remind myself that no matter what I get done or don't get done, when all is said and done....the day is a good one.

I am almost done with my shopping but need to get a few small things. The worst is mailing alot of stuff (most of my family is away) I love free shipping but that means someone on the other end must wrap. I still need to do my cards. Hopefully can start Saturday.

Linsey, forgetting return address labels may be a good thing! That way if you have a wrong address you won't get it back! (but then you'll never know if it was a wrong address)

I went Christmas shopping (on my birthday- LOL) and found something very nice for my daughter. The store had free gift wrapping, and it looks MUCH nicer than I would've wrapped it...lots of pretty ribbon. I did good with that one. I sent out some cards yesterday and forgot to put return address labels on them. I did NOT do good with THAT one. emoticon This time of year it is too easy for the brain to feel on overload.

Hi back! emoticon

I finished my Christmas shopping about a month ago. (This year, I have only 1 person to buy for.)

I like that: "Strategic Lifestyle"! :-)

Hi all! emoticon
I've done about 1/3 of Christmas shopping. Will focus more after school activities are done this week w/ my 3 young people (college finals for 2 & talent show for 8th gr. dd).

I'm beginning to ruminate on thoughts for 2013... I have 2 words that I'm thinking on to consider for the new year: "strategic lifestyle." Hmmm....

Life has been crazy busy for us this year. I felt like my Christmas spirit was moving at a snails pace. However, I am making progress. I don't have to feel like I got to do EVERYTHING. I am happy if I can just accomplish SOME things.

We have had an Advent Wreath since we were first married but have been sporadic in using it. This year we have done better with short readings daily and longer on Sundays. I would encourage you to keep trying. It does help you to focus. Many churches offer free family readings. I haven't checked the internet for readings.

Have a blessed Advent and Merry Christmas.

Are you involved with Advent? Is it part of your family's December doings? -- We should have started when my kids were younger. It would have been easier to set a "tradition" to center our thoughts and actions around the real "meaning of the season" (at least for our household).

Hey SELF: There's many other ways of getting one's steps in w/o going for a long walk.

March in place, especially while brushing your teeth and standing at the stove cooking something.

I've tried some really weird stuff. Some worked, some didn't. Enjoy.

We lived in Iceland for 2 years so I know about the dark in the winter. The sun came up around 11 am and went down around 3 pm. Of course, the summer days were long!
Do you have a full spectrum light in your house? That can help with SAD.

Berry4, the worst thing about December is that it's still dark when I go to work and dark when I come home. It doesn't get light until about 7:30 in the morning, and it's starting to get dark at 4:00 in the afternoon. I have S.A.D. and it's really bad if I can't get out in the sun. But other than that, I LOVE the snow and everything that comes with winter!

Sugar, thanks for the answer:)

It's interesting to me how every body is so different.

Some women go through per-menopause at a young age 34 or so while others can don't see until 50+.
My mother-in-law who's 74 still has hot flashes once in a while.

I was 13 when I started. I remember the school nurse telling me to cheer up I only had 40 years to worry about it. She was wrong by 5 years. Actually, my mom was still dealing with TOM till a hysterectomy at 66. She was on HRT for years so I don't know how much was because of that. So far I am going through it much easier!

I too do better one day at a time in December.

SUGAR, what are where you when you did start your TOM?

I'm sure that it seems like some of us are young, but as it maybe, some do it real young while others way into there 50+.

Berry4, I hope your friend has been to a doctor. Not sleeping that badly is not good. Asians tend to have different symptoms in menopause, more joint pain, less hot flashes.

As to hot flashes leaving totally, I wouldn't count on it quite yet. Mine seem to be lessening then suddenly they increased again. It seems to have something to do with the seasons.

I am 58 and only 2 years into menopause so you all seem young!

Debby et al - as of right now, it's been two months since I had a hot flash or nightsweats. My last wacky period was 5 months ago. I'm hoping I'm done but we'll see what Mother Nature has in store for me. When the hot flashes became regular, I was getting them morning, noon and night and then at the beginning of September they became UBER intense. More frequent and more intense. I said to my husband 'I am hoping this is like the grand finale at a fireworks display and they stop after this phase moves through'. Within days of my saying that, they stopped and I haven't had one since. I find it hard to believe I'm completely done with them but who knows. Exercise and a healthy diet make a difference. I'm easing my way into vegetarianism/veganism and I'm sure cutting back on animal meat products helps also.

I'll have to try the melatonin - I agree, herbs can be tricky so I'll do my research and see what I learn. Thanks for sharing everyone, Pat

I believe in myself, I am a strong woman. I will reach my goals, NOTHING & NOBODY will hold me down. I will live my life with integrity and intention. I will set a good example for my daughters and my son. I will be a woman that makes my grand children proud when they look at pictures of me long after I've left this earth.

Here's a link for melatonin.
http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/melaton
in/NS_patient-melatonin/DSECTION=safety

Keep in mind that "natural" plants or supplements can in fact have harmful side-effects or consequences in some people. (think St. John's Wort or Foxglove)

http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/st-john
s-wort/NS_patient-stjohnswort
http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/herbal-
treatment-for-anxiety/AN01803

With all that said, I was using melatonin just last month and found it to be helpful, as long as I had at least 8+ hrs before I was needed for something the next day. (It was during a high stress period that affected my whole system. Lack of sleep was making everything worse.)
The person who recommended it to me, said to "be sure to NOT take it every day".

Yikes! I "oops'd" w/ the coffee yesterday. I was using it as "comfort" & warming food instead of munching, BUT I way overdid and was awake most of the night. I know better; just wasn't paying attention to how it was adding up.
2 large decaf today. emoticon

Every month is a little different, but I'm 51 now and still having regular cycles. -- I just connected w/ a college friend recently and she is in a sad place. She went into "sudden" menopause in March and began being unable to sleep. She is now over 6 months out from that, and can no longer safely drive, and is a shadow of her former self. She is currently trying acupuncture as a possible help/remedy. She eats quite healthy and has no extra body fat. (She is Asian, from Taiwan.) -- I don't know what to suggest for her...

Thank God I've stopped with the nightsweats and hot flashes (hope I didn't just jinx myself) but I have been awake since 2 am - it's not 6:45. Some nights I can't turn the thoughts in my head off. Even at the age of 52 - almost 53 - I still find things to worry about in the middle of the night. Oh my! Have a great day everyone, Pat

Debby and others--I found taking melatonin at night has helped with the night sweats. The work out shirt idea sounds good. There were nights I had to get up and change the bed I had sweated so much. Sometimes I drove my husband crazy at night flipping the covers on and off. The melatonin has helped even things out though.

SNOOK,
Sorry your having such a time. I can relate all to well. I like you did not want the pill either.
That's why I turned to what I did. And it did help me.

I also coming from experience eating caffeine, sugar and red meats can add to hot flashes make them worse.

Believe it or not some women at the age of 34 have gone through menopause, my friend did.

Once I took the estroven that's if you can take it like I did helped me allot.

I'm thinking of you and know how your felling.

Debby - I have no idea what to expect. And so far I've not had hot flashes during the day. I assume night sweats are just the same flashes, but they happen at night.

While still overweight, I have lost 5-10 pounds in the last year. I wonder if that might have something to do with changing comfort levels at various temperatures. I find so far that I am not as warm at work as I used to be - instead of my usual short sleeve top, I actually wore a long sleeve mock neck top - usually I don't break those out until the deep freezes in January and February.

Linsey - Sounds like you have a good solution for decorating and the dogs. We've found that one of our young cats (3 YO) likes to climb our fake tree - wonder if he'll do it this year.

Snookums - Best wishes with finding relief and answers that work for you. And vent away!

HI! Haven't been here in a bit but ugggg...my period is soooo all over the place. Last night I woke up so clammy and sweaty...uggg...My doctor said something at my appt. about putting me on the pill if things don't even out. NOOOOOO! The pill and I don't work well together. I feel like I just need to get through it. I'm 42 and feel kinda young to be missing periods and hot flashes but here I am. Just needed to vent. Thanks.

Wicking material in a nightshirt actually sounds like a really good idea. I tend to bundle up in sweatshirts b/c our room is cold, no heat vent. We have one of those mattress pads with a heating element in it. It has a his side and her side. For the last 2 years, I haven't been able to turn on my side at all. It would make me sweat. I frequently slept with my feet out of the covers, just to help. Lately, I've been cold. Hubby has his heater turned up, and mine has been off. I tried mine on a low setting last night and slept comfortably. Hmmm. Maybe I am out of the woods with this hot flash business? Maybe not? But, I will think positive.

Debby, my daughter caught wind that I wasn't thinking of decorating much for the holidays. She insisted that she wants to see decorations. She said she'd help. Ok. This sounds good. I still am sticking to a strictly table top tree, tho. I don't feel like keeping the dog away from things.

Debby - I think DH was "inspired" by the tech shirt from Sunday, which is white - practically see through white. What were the organizers thinking???

Interesting idea! I am glad my nighttime hot flashes don't make me sweat that much.

(I remember going to a spouse's retreat and the number one thing on the guy's "Don't do" list was wear sweats to bed!)

Mary that is funny, but a great idea! I have so many of those shirts, I never thought of wearing them to bed (although they are not the most sexy thing to wear to bed emoticon )

I have so been meaning to get back here on a regular basis - and tonight my DH, Dave, provided me with the "funny" that I just had to share with y'all: He thinks I should wear my race shirts as jammies because the wicking material might be helpful with my night sweats! I thought of this board as being THE place to share his idea - figured there are no guys here and many of you could relate to night sweats. :)

May we all get a good night's sleep!

Linsey, I agree! I guess it's because Thanksgiving was early this year. My daughter has put up one of the trees and the lights outside. I've started my shopping, but not into it yet.

I have to get back on track after the holiday. I may look around the web later.

I'm actually glad it's Monday. I need a break from the weekend!
