Season Of Change

     Before going through "the change of life", I was a very tolerant person. But somewhere between screaming like a wild Banshee in the delivery room to my first hot flash, I became less tolerant. It didn't happen all at once, but gradually, like the leaves in New England; I went from vibrant green to crusty brown. In my youth, I never understood the impatience and general crankiness of elderly people. Now that I am a card carrying AARP member, I have a license to be cantankerous. It doesn't take much to spark my temper or tap dance on my last, sane nerve. For instance:
     It never used to bother me when people bought the newest gadget on the market. Back in the dinosaur days, that included microwaves, cordless phones and cassette tape players. Today, everyone HAS to own the latest technological wonder: iPhone, iPad....iBidet and i-Don't-Care.
     Another thing that bothers the hell out of me? People who hide behind their religion to excuse their repugnant behavior. These people interpret God's word in a language that could only be translated on Mars. If you're going to talk the talk, you'd better be prepared to walk the walk. And while you're at it, don't judge me until you've slipped on a pair of my well-worn shoes and walked a few miles in them.
     I have also become increasingly jealous annoyed by people who feel compelled to update me daily on their latest exercise regimen/diet plan. I'm standing in line at the bakery and they're all like, "Wow, I just lost 5 pounds!" and I'm thinking, "Butter cream or chocolate mocha frosting on those cupcakes?"
     And what's up with the fickle bladder in middle age? I used to be like a camel that could store fluids for days...but now this camel needs a colostomy bag.
     I don't have time for people with Type A personalities. When I was younger, I was accused of being one; I admired those powerful, aggressive people fighting for a cause. Now their passion exhausts me and I just don't have patience for their soapbox drama. I'd rather be playing corn hole with a band of merry meerkats.
     When I'm feeling particularly grumpy, the last thing I want to hear is how great your expensive, African safari was, how awesome your kid is at underwater basket weaving and how excited you are for buying that lucky, five million dollar lottery ticket. Unless you're feeling charitable enough to pay off my mortgage, I really don't want to know how the planets aligned perfectly for you while I'm stuck in the crossfire of a meteor shower.
     What disturbs me more than anything is menopausal fatigue. I used to be like the Energizer Bunny. I could simultaneously flip a pancake, nurse a baby, donate $100 to the penguin tuxedo fund and practice my Irish Riverdancing steps, all within five minutes. Now I'm yawning at 10:30 a.m. (and this is after two cups of coffee strong enough to invigorate the Walking Dead). All I want to do is hibernate under a quilt until somebody rings the dinner bell. I WAKE FOR STEAK!
     I've hit my 50's like the last person in a bounce house stuck in the corner crack with no one there to pull me out. But never fear, Meno Mama will persevere.

  1. I have so much to look forward too!! So I posted something recently along the same lines. Except I'm just starting into this wonderful adventure of life changing...and I'm not quite embracing it either.

  2. I was always a little cranky in certain situations, today I have NO patience... lol. Menopause is so fun, NOT!!! Only one good thing about it and I don't miss that at all. The exhaustion is driving me crazy, I cannot get enough sleep no matter how I try, I am in bed by 9pm and sleeping... yet I wake up as if I never slept.

    Thanks for the honest and hilarious post, just what I needed:)

  3. You know what I really hate?!?! Cantankerous bloggers who make me have a yen for chocolate cupcakes!!! Damn, I hope there's some at the Halloween party tonight because I didn't buy any ;)

    You know what? I think as you get older you just don't have time anymore for stupid shit. Which is as it should be. Remember how much drama we had when we were younger? Everything was a big effin' crisis. Our friends were just as bad. Oh, it was all very exciting then but now, who has time for that? Esp. since at our age, our friends should bloody well know better ;)

    Latest guy dump you? F**k it, NEXT!!! Kid come home late smelling of weed? F**k it, lock him in the basement until Christmas! Cat barf on your new $150 shoes? F**k it, lock him in the basement with the kid, and let them duke it out to see who feeds who until Christmas. ;)

  4. Gosh, HOney, you are so up my cranky alley, I wish we could just meet for martinis (I'm having one now to welcome in my hurricane which will be shutting off cyberspace for at least a week...) I'm peri I think (will be 50 in feb) but I'm peri-cranky if you want to call it that. I snap, snap, snap. You don't have children at 40 and 42 but I did so I'm forced to stay young. Meanwhile, my hip hurts from walking an extremely youthful pup 3-4 times a day...the hurricane will be a great excuse not to walk!

    1. I think you should use the hurricane as an excuse to sleep in and relax a bit--that's what we do when we get them! And keep drinking those martinis because then the storm won't seem like that big of a deal!! That's how we roll here in South Florida! Good luck to you and we'll touch base when your internet is back up!

  5. OK, I'm really having more difficulty with this blog post than I should have. I thought you wrote that somebody was lap dancing on your last nerve. Which caused me to laugh uproariously as I tried to figure out how that could happen. Oh, well, wait until you're post menopausal. Along with the seasons, apparently eyesight changes as well. Now I'm going to look for someone who will agree to lap dance on my nerves.

  11. I'm not in menopause and I can't stand everything on your list lol... Maybe menopause will calm me down.... Bwahahaha. Especially the religion part. I love that the ones who say thou shall not judge are the ones with signs and posters telling people to judge, it ruffles me a little bit. I have an iPhone, And cannot use it to its best ability for the life of me. It is embarrassing.

  13. DO you know why I love reading your posts? Because it almost feels like permission to have the same views. I had to go through changes early due to a medical issue. I feel that fatigue. I feel that dislike for Skinny Sally with the flat, unstretch-marked stomach. My husband often says, "What happened to you? You used to be so nice!" It's true. I Used to be.
    All that said, I'm extremely interested in the iBidet. :)

And yeah, be on the lookout for an iBidet--I'll bet the good people at Apple are already working on the design!

  24. Another great post from a class act. I actually have a brick type cell phone that I got at goodwill for $2. It weighs 3 pounds. I Loooooooove to take it out at business meetings and lay it on the desk beside my ipad. I-dontcare. I love it.

    I was thinking the other day about life in general,and got to that pathetic little place where you say "woe is me", and funny enough I looked up (at the Charlotte Airport no less) to see a soldier in line. I jumped up and bought this kid his sandwich and a coke. Airborne Regiment. Medic. 2 Tours in Crapholistan. I listed to him for ten minutes and was so ashamed of myself I wanted to run out of the building. I was pissed that I had to spend another day flying - he said it was the best day of his life because he got to spend a day flying home to see his mom.

    He mentioned he liked cigars. As do I. I gave him my entire travel humidor, a dozen $10 cigars and a lighter. He gave me his American Flag arm patch.

    I got the better deal,,,,

  40. Soooo...Loving your blog but I need to get to the bottom of something RIGHT AWAY!
    I never had great skin but by the end of my 20s the acne was gone! Sadly, a few years later the sun-spots showed up. A few years after that fine lines showed up. I kinda had chubby cheeks until gravity found me in my 40s and now I have cheek bones.
    I'm happy to report I've always had consistent multiple orgasms with my husband....however, since you've got a couple years on me, I need to know the truth about my future...

    Do I need to invest in some battery operated appliances or start courting the pool guy or what?

    1. Stick with the batteries--probably be a safer bet...that is if you still HAVE desire after going through menopause!

  41. Enjoyed reading your blog and believe me most of what you write rings a bell! I'm also in my 50s, sadly closer to 60s.
    Btw, like you I'm a dinosaur where the computer is concerned. Never know how to add pictures or copy from other blogs so the reason I didn't pick up the award you gave me was because I didn't know how! (Blush..)

  43. My complaint about menopause was the whole independant modern woman schtick-While aquainting myself with hot flashes, skin crawling, sleep interuption-I had a full time job, two grown daughters living at home w/jobless boyfriends, and a pair of demented parents to try to care for-600 miles away! In the old days menopausal mama-just laid on the sofa after dad went off to work-and got up in time to dust and make dinner. I nearly killed myself surviving that time. Now I am retired and enjoy my crone-age-to hell with the world!

  44. I'm not quite going through menopause just yet, but I agree with everything that you mentioned. All that stuff annoys me too. I have friend that get every new iphone that comes out & every other new thing. They told me that they got the new iphone & I really didn't know what to say. "Congrats", "So excited for you", "big deal", "Are you braggging about it"? What do you do for fatigue? I've been drinking Starbucks new fruit juice energy drinks, but there's got to a better way. I'm exgausted by noon.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. If the fatigue persists, you may want to check with your doctor. I would suggest trying to get a solid 7 hours of sleep a night if that is possible and be sure and get vitamins into your diet. I am tired a lot myself and I hate to admit it but I drink a lot of coffee, too. If that doesn't work and I am really feeling desperate, I drink an energy drink a few times a week--but that's only if I have a lot to do and have to cut back a little on sleep.

  53. It's so nice to meet you, Mama. I'm hopping over from IWSG. I'm #192 on Alex's list. Crossing fingers and toes, but I think/hope/pray that I'm almost finished with menopause. (whispering just in case). I started early because of a hysterectomy, around 43. But 2009 to 2011 was the worst. I keep telling my DH he's lucky to be alive.

    Anyway, it's very nice to meet you, and as a new follower, I'll most definitely be back.

  69. My camel bladder super mutant power only worked when I was at work away from home. I could go from 7:00am to at least 6:30pm with no potty worries in sight! Now that I'm working from home, I feel like I should just run a line straight from my bladder to the toilet and save on toilet paper!!!

    1. Oh God, isn't that the truth??? I never had this bladder issue until I was older---now I don't go anywhere without making sure there is ALWAYS access to a bathroom. But I like your idea of running a line from your bladder to the toilet. Just one long catheter!!

  73. Have you seen just how many people who are around you won't shake hands with you or share your meal. Your family members and friends should always remind you whenever they see your fingers in your mouth. Request loved ones and workmates to let you recognize when your arms are in your mouth.

    instantly and he screamed and leaped to his feet again.

  76. Undeniably believe that which you stated.
    Your favorite reason seemed to be on the web the easiest thing to
    be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while people consider worries that they
    just don't know about. You managed to hit the
    nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people
    could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

  77. Howdy would you mind letting me know which webhost you're utilizing?
    I've loaded your blog in 3 completely different web browsers and I must say this blog
    loads a lot quicker then most. Can you suggest a good internet hosting provider at a
    fair price? Kudos, I appreciate it!
