It's All Over, I'm DONE!
I'm serious. I really am done. I haven't been able to be on blogger much at all in the last few months, and I can't make blog visits like I used to. Therefore, I am DONE...
That's right. The last one was on December 2008. I am officially in menopause.
I no longer have to worry about this:
No more asking my dad, hubby, or sons to go out to the store for me to buy feminine products.
No more worry about all these costly feminine hygeine products!
They may have been a little more fun if I could have found them covered in flowers like I found here,
No more having to keep an emergency basket of feminine products, though this would make a cute gift basket, don't you think? Heh.
I would just about be willing to go back to having my periods if I could find these tampons. Click on the pic to enlarge so you can read the fine print.
Wouldn't you? No? Not me either, but I think the concept is freaking hilarious!
It's too bad I missed out on this phenomenon...environmentally friendly, sustainable cotton feminine napkins! That you can re-use! Boy howdy!
You can find this kind of stuff on etsy too. Just type in the keyword "napkins." I found this out accidentally when I was searching for table napkins. Not quite the thing I would put out on my table, no matter how creative my tablescaping.
Speaking of creative, I will no longer have the supplies on hand to make such beautiful artwork and creations as I found at the Tampon Craftswebsite. I will miss not being able to make a lovely tampon flower bouquet like this:
Too bad I didn't find this tampon applicator snowflake tree topper before Christmas so that I could put this atop my tree and impress all my relatives!
Since most women in menopause are with men who are approaching some state of baldness, it is a shame that we won't have the supplies on hand to make tampon toupees for our menfolk. Gosh darn it all!
I'm very lucky though. I have not had any of the legendary bad symptoms of menopause. No night sweats, no mood swings, no real hot flashes.
So don't hate me because I'm symptomless!
Anyhow, I am determined that being menopausal is not going to slow me down one bit. I feel better than I ever have before and am determined to do all that I can to stay healthy. This is not going to define me!
For those of you yet to experience this change of life, here's smooth sailing to you! (This phrase endorsed by Capt. Blackbeard of ye Blackbeard Brand Rugged Tampons)
