That moment you've waited for. The excitement building. The days drawing ever so slowly shorter. Yes. You can hear it coming. The abundant, internal orchestra that rings in her mind: curricula, lesson plans, and unit studies!
It seldom starts at all. In fact, if you are like me, you are constantly searching out the best curricula, signing up for all the other homeschool blogs and oh my goodness -- the FREEBIES they offer!

Alright, Ladies. Let's end the facade and get down to brass tacks. We aren't spring chickens anymore. Time as slowly began to etch its mark into our face. We are tigers that have earned our stripes and with those stripes comes a gargantuan heap of other issues. You know what I'm talking about. Mood swings. Irritability. Hot flashes from the ninth level of hell! Cold sweats that make you wish bed sheets were made of that industrialized absorbent material they use when cleaning up large water spills. Yes, ladies. It has begun. The early stages of menopause. The time when your body decides it is going to go completely haywire and make you look like a fool right in the middle of wherever you are at the time - and without a warning. But rest assured, millions of women have endured the same thing and lived to be a ripe old age (and relatively wiser). I'm no doctor, but I can tell you from personal experience, early-30's is simply too young in my opinion, to be opening that new chapter in life. Between lesson plans, freezer meals, laminating and library visits, one simply does not have the time for hot flashes. And oh, the crying! Are we again toddlers, crying because someone look at us rather funny? Well, yes and no. Of course, we are not toddlers! That is ridiculous. But we certainly do reserve the right to cry whenever we want and without any lip from those around us, and for any reason, too! Why? Who knows. I sure didn't. At least not until I went to the doctor.
