Just An Update

Well, I don't think you can imagine my surprise when I got my period right before bedtime last night. It wasn't expected, because it doesn't come these days for weeks, if not months at a time. I wish I had known it was coming last week, because I would have known that I was experiencing an extreme version of PMS and maybe not have felt as though I was losing my mind

However, you know I didn't know my period was on its way, because I was completely at a loss as to why I was feeling the way I did. This is the worst aspect of pre-menopause, because one never quite knows where one is at. Also, usually normal PMS is not as deep and dark as what I experienced last week.

Nonetheless, I got through it, and now at least I know in retrospect why I felt the way I did. It would have been nice though, to have a clue.

I finally had a decent night's sleep last night, and I slept for almost seven hours. I can't begin to tell you what a relief that was.

Today I washed my hair, and I decided to curl it with foam rollers, to get very light waves, as I went out with a friend late this afternoon. 

It didn't occur to me to take a photo after my hair dried and before I put in the curlers.

From what I saw before putting my hair in curlers, the trim worked out fairly well. Everything seemed to be even, and I'm happy to know that I'm one more half inch further in getting rid of my thin ends. 

I do have to admit that when looking at the layers where the breakage occurred, I realize how many more trims I have to go through until I am rid of the breakage line. Sometimes I wonder how I'm going to find the patience to wait for that, but I know I will, because I don't plan on any big cuts in the near future.

All in all, I had a good day. I got a bit more work done around the house this morning, I spent time with my daughter, and I had my monthly visit with one of my oldest friends. 

I also can boldly say, without apology, that I had a good hair day.

'Til tomorrow, my friends. Much love to all.


  1. I'm happy to read you are feeling better, Franny! It sounds like you had a fantastic day. I would love to see a photo of your wavy hair. I bet it looked gorgeous ;)

  2. Oh, thank goodness. Stupid PMS!

  3. At last, a solid explanation for such a puzzling state of mind. PMS......that certainly speaks volumes. Now you know. Add to that a good hair day...things are brightening up!

  4. I did have a fantastic day, Ohtawen! I will post a photo of my wavy hair.

    I know, Aamba, I know. Stupid PMS. If only I'd known!

    Yes, Lulu, it is a solid explanation. Now if I could just have a regular schedule again, so I'd know that it's just PMS.

    And indeed, things have brightened up immensely. Thank you.


I love hearing from you.
