Ten Things Thursday

1.We are in the great white north visiting family for a few days. I can't get enough of my family!!!

2.  I love pictures like this that show how little my children were in relation to how big my husband is, especially now that they are catching up to him ( my DD only has 2.5 inches til shes as tall as I am!).
Thankfully - no hot flashes!

3.  My sweet boy shaved his head to raise funds for Cancer research. My DD's bff raised over $1100 and shaved her head. Isn't that awesome! As an 11yr old girls there is NO way I would have had the confidence to do that.

4. I'm having a tough time with anxiety these days, and chronic tension headaches so I met with a Naturopath today to discuss natural remedies. I was glad to hear that I am taking all the right supplements. She did suggest that at 41yrs old its not completely unheard of that I could be going through perimenopause. Although that freaked me out, I googled menopause symptoms and several of mine fit. Honestly, I'd be thrilled to find out that that's whats at the root of the craziness I've been going through. I have a dr.'s appt nx Friday so I will definitely be asking for some blood tests to rule it out.

5. In the event that I'm not in perimenopause, I'm considering going back on a low dose anti anxiety. I hate the idea, but I hate the anxiety even more. I tried prozac, that just made me sleepy. I have also been on Celexa, that made me zombie like, not sleepy but no emotion good or bad. So I'd love to hear any experiences you may have good and bad with meds.

6.I'm following a blog recommended by Holly about a young mom who was just diagnosed with cancer. Her ability to find the positive in the horrible is truly amazing. You might want to check it out and flood her comment box with positive thoughts and prayers.

Future blogs: glow in the dark easter egg hunt, pintrest crayon art, all natural cosmetics, my first castor oil plaster. Yes folks you'll want to tune in for that one!!


  1. Aw babe - I wish your headaches were better. I just started prozac because stress and anxiety directly trigger my migraines. Have you tried acupuncture?

  2. That is fantastic about the cancer funds! How awesome!

  3. Aww, I hope you feel better soon!
