So I was all positive and happy the past few entries, now I'm going to grumble, because it's good to be balanced. lol.
Also (TMI alert), my "lost at sea AF" (thank you for another nautical metaphor St. Elsewhere, adding it to my collection) arrived after 40 days and 40 nights on Tuesday. I am glad AF finally came into port (har, har, har....grrrrrrrrrroan) as I didn't know what to think when my cycle went so long (OK, actually I thought a lot of things: sleeper pregnancy that hides from HPTs? Menopause at last?? some ill beyond my ken?). However, as can be the case after a longer cycle, it's a more difficult period. I'm not exactly in pain, but I'm....really uncomfortable. As in I feel like my insides are simultaneously liquefying and creating a bubble of noxious gas that lodges in my pelvis, somewhere below belly button and in front of tailbone. It comes and goes, but tends to get worse I'm moving around, which means I am spending a lot of time on the couch with laptop/iPad/Kobo reader. I felt so disgusting yesterday that I downloaded another Phil Rickman mystery as a compensation. (I just finished one last week and usually I try to space them out.) And AF is really, really heavy. Oh, so much fun.
Although I do enjoy book 'n' blogs I also always have a running list of Things To Do in the summer, so I would be really happy if this could just be over already. I'm starting a community summer band program today, so I hope I have enough energy to practice my euphonium for a little while, as I haven't picked in up in more than a year and am no doubt pretty rusty.
