What a girl wants

I want to not be angry.

I want to do this to my keyboard: lasdigjf'oaweifual/dkmvaL'dvijalvkna"dliogvjadlkgmaldkvua[oweiutq23809ualdskvma
>b,ma'oidsjgla:dmg'aoiweglakdsgjadogijaedglkmlaesidfja'sdiogjaelvkmoaiwev aldkva

I want to just slide right on into menopause without hassling with all this peri-menopause mess. I'm having the hot flashes, mood swings and other symptoms AND I'm still having periods. SO. NOT. FAIR. I shouldn't have to do both.

I want to buy luggage.

I want a reason to buy luggage.

I want to pack my van with the kayaks, the cooler, the tent, an air mattress, a 50 gallon drum of OFF, sunscreen and the husband and kids and take off to the river for about three days. And while I am normally wholly against such practices, I would totally turn off my cell phone.

I want to see a tornado. Again.

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas.

I want poor ol' Mike Bettes to see twelve dozen tornadoes a day until Vortex2 is over, bless his heart.

I want to start FlyLady again and stick with it.

I want pretty toenails.

I want a Mountain Dew.

I want to meet all the wonderful women bloggers I missed out on seeing last month at Mom's Night Out.

I want my MTV.

I want worship and fellowship and a sense of family without religion and politics getting in the way. I'm afraid I won't find that in a Baptist church. That makes me sad.

I want you to leave a comment wishing me a Happy 5th Blogaversary since I kind of forgot. Yeah. 5 years blogging and I spent the day with my feet in the creek, watching my kids splash and play and having some seriously wonderful conversation with my little sister.

I want you to stay tuned because in two weeks I will have my act together enough to host a giveaway in honor of my big 5th Blogaversary - you know, the one I forgot.

Happy 5th Blogaversary! I just forgot my 3rd until this very moment.. duh. LOL Brain Fart!! I hear you on the "perimenopause" sh**. No one should have to do it ALL.. one or the other is bad enough! Hope you get through it quickly, like I did.. I had a bad few months, then *poof* it was all over. No more hot flashes, no more nothin'. It's

After 30 years of second chances and forgiving and overlooking it and chalking it up to the fact that there are people involved and people are fallible, I finally came to the conclusion that I wouldn't find what we needed in a Baptist church. We visited a United Methodist church this morning, and liked it. They're much more focused on helping the community and welcoming in everyone. The Baptist churches I have attended over the years were all about their inner circle. This was much It MIGHT be the place for us. We'll see.

Happy 5th bloggaversary.

Well, Happy Anniversary. Wow, the menopause stuff. June 29 it will be a year of no period for me. I keep telling myself to hold out. I'm afraid I will be "blessed" again.

Happy Anniversary! If you ever find a church family that operates w/o religion and politics let me know. We don't have that in the Mormon church either-though I did have a good time at camp last week.

I'm staggering back into FlyLady too...15 minutes at a time (or sometimes less).
