On the road again...

Bikes at Yosemite in the early morning.
Hey, wait a minute! Didn't I just get home from a getaway?! Well, lucky me, I get to go somewhere again. In less than two hours I'll be on the road with four of my crazy friends heading to the mountains near Santa Cruz. (And no, we're not riding bikes.) I am really looking forward to it. I'm packed. My gift is ready. I've got snacks galore. The house is tidied. The boys have plenty of clean clothes for the weekend. I'm about to start my period. Um, did I just say that out loud? Sorry...that's not a good thing. I mean, it IS a good thing when you don't want more children. Or at least not to birth anymore. ItalicNever say never, if we were led to foster a kid...or even adopt...we'd say yes. I'm just not feeling the whole gestating and lactating thing. Been there, done that. Twice. But a menstrual cycle is NOT so good when you're getting ready to be away from home for a weekend. So not cool. Although, if I think about it, it could have been worse. I could have been "doing my thing" while hiking in Yosemite.
Wouldn't that attract bears? Oh wait, that's sharks. about digressing. Am I even allowed to say "menstruation" on my blog? I'm thinking that it is my blog. So...I suppose if I want to say "menstruation", I should be able to say "menstruation" if I want. Right? I mean, it's real. Oh yes, menstruation is very real. And so are the cramps and the bloating that lovingly joins in the fun of menstruating.
Wow. I continue to digress. You'll have to excuse me...I tend to take things a bit far sometimes. Ask my brother. We can go on and on and on about something so silly for way too long and still think it's the funniest thing we've ever heard. In the meantime, those around us just think we're strange. And annoying. Ask my dad.
Anyway...what were we talking about? Oh! Yes. Retreat. I am ready to go. And I won't be back until Sunday evening. I'm sure I'll pop in to see what you've all been up to...and to say hi. But not before I smother my family in hugs and kisses. That's the only bad thing about retreat...I sure will miss them.
Stay safe and warm while I'm gone...xoxoxoxoxo

i'm about to start my period any day now - you know what they say about girls who hang out together lots right - they get on the same cycle!!

I like hanging out with you - even if it means we are menstruating together. Oh, I can't believe I just typed that word. I hardly even use that word.

now I rambling. have fun.
