On Labor Day, my father-in-law fell and broke his right hip and that has put him on downward spiral of poor health ever since. He is 91 and the doctors said that his body has suffered a lot of trauma. If only it was just a broken hip, but it's the pneumonia, the congestive heart failure, the urinary tract infection, the 3 surgeries to put the hip back in place, the depression, the warning signs of dementia, not to mention that he hasn't really eaten in 4 weeks, the meds that make him a different person. My sister-in-law deals with the majority of it since she is his primary care giver. I wish I could do more for her. They live 2 hours away, and we try to go as much as we can. With Matt's school and XC schedule and with Mr. Happy's travel it's taxing to say the least, but we do what we can. He has been moved into a rehabilitation center as of 2 days ago. There are good days and then there are not so good days. We continue to pray for comfort and healing.
In the midst of all this, I think Peri-menapause is becoming regular ole menapause. Yep...I'm in hell. I'm HOT and CRANKY! I even stopped exercising because I'm so damn hot. I got in my car a couple of weeks ago and was so hot that I just cried and the more I cried the hotter I got so the more I cried. OMG!! On the up side, I haven't gained any weight back (insert smiley face).
Speaking of weight loss...now my clothes don't fit. I'll be damned if I'm buying all new clothes. So this would be the opportune time to do the 333 challenge or the 10 item wardrobe challenge, right? Well, I'm struggling with that! Damn it! I have made a large dent in my closet. I removed all summer items and packed them away. I'm formulating a plan, a version of the 333. I'm taking into consideration that I work, I live in
My closet so far...I think I have made great progress. There is obviously more than 33 items. But I have a plan...Maybe if I don't have as much stuff, I won't be as hot. It's worth a shot.
Did I mention that I'm HOT!?!
