I was just reading my last post from last week and was thinking how incredibly different I feel just a few days later. The melancholy, the longing and the sadness are all gone. I’m really starting to think, as I hit, the 4th floor, as a friend of mine calls 40s, that my body is taking a turn for the worst. I’ve never suffered from PMS, but now? It hits me like a tons of bricks.
It wasn’t until I started seriously thinking last week that I realized the 3 times I’ve been terribly homesick since I moved to Chicago (3 months ago) have been around the time I was menstruating… what a coincidence, huh? For someone who does research for a living I’m thinking I should have noticed that a bit sooner. Anyhow, PMS is gone now, Venus is back to it’s forward travels and I feel happy and cheery again. Life is good. Oh, and it gets better. I’m off to NYC today to spend a week there for Thanksgiving. How’s that for a cheer-me-upper?
I hope you have a wonderful holiday and have the chance to be very thankful for all your blessing. I’ll be sure to count you in in mine. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
