Getting this Menopause 🔥under Control!! Hopefully ðŸ˜¡

Thank you for all the personal messages, information and advice on the hot flashes/menopause issues. Don’t wish this on anyone, but glad I’m not alone. Damn it’s like welcome to “50”.

Funny thing is, I feel great unless I’m ” 🔥flashing”. Well, the main mate might have more to say ( that I’m a crazy lady ) about all this menopause stuff🤣🤣🤣

I don’t have the bloating or weight gain. I’m actually having the weight loss, probably due to sweating my ass off!!!

Got some stuff in the works to help ( Thank you Carol ❤️ and Cheryl❤️)

The gym has been my lifesaver also!

But on a better note! TGIF!🙌🏼

Date night tomorrow 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼

Think we’re going bowling 🎳! Don’t care where we go, but get this crazy, sweaty, mentally unstable lady out somewhere 🤣

Dino and Ashley ran into a co-worker/friend today at the store. He was on his best behavior ( NOT) . I guess the cashier called him BRANDON and he had to correct her and say my name is LANDON ( rolling his eyes) not Brandon 🤣🤣! His hair was on point ( literally) a totally out of control fro🤣.

So after my friend chatted with Ashley. Ashley quickly texted me. …..Mom, just met your friend and Dino was in rare form! Sorry 🙈

So , I quickly texted my friend… heard you met my well behaved grandson. And her reply was… he’s adorable ❤️awww thank you Colleen. But I guess Dino( Brandon/Landon) was quite the cute little pistol at that encounter 🤣🤣🤣❤️

Welcome to the weekend! Birthday party this weekend for my awesome mother/aka the Gma❤️ can’t wait to celebrate 🎉

Goodnight to all, until tomorrow, xoxo


Happy Valentine’s Day â¤ï¸

A day of ❤️ love! Or just another Thursday lol

I left my mate’s a little treat to wake up to. And it’s funny how excited there were about them. We have a cereal epidemic going around over here. You wouldn’t think these are adults ….. always wondering where or who ate all their favorite cereal.

I dare someone say ” we have no cereal “

Problem solved for today

Everyone got there own box. Best Valentine’s Day gift ever. Main mate got some extra stuff, because duh 🙄 he’s my valentine ❤️

and the Dino got me a card with tons on stickers on it and an incredible tattoo.

He was sooo excited to give me my tattoo! He has them all over his arms, so I’m wondering if he put any in the cards for school lol

Dino…pajama day at school

Night Sweats 💦💦Nightmare

Menopause and cold weather is the best.

Let’s get real, anyone that is around my age ……are you starting to get hot flashes???? Or just hot at night. And I’m not talking about being ” hot” sexually 🤣🤣🤣🤣

I knew after my surgery ( hysterectomy) that this shit was going to happen. But this ” hot” stuff sucks. I’m usually a cold/sweatshirt/layered kind of gal. Now I’m a less is best kind of lady.

And at night, I actually crack the window, fan on high. It’s so cold ….but ahhhhh so nice!

So bring on this weather! 🤣🤣🤣 I’ve been told that all the exercising I do helps with symptoms also. Well, I couldn’t imagine it being any worse 😳

So if you see me outside jogging in this weather, life is good!

Stay warm And drive careful, it’s nasty out there

night sweats to all, until tomorrow, xoxo 😘

LEGO Movie Part 2

Movie day!

First a little more ice skating and hockey fun

Dressing them in winter gear! Equals pain in the butt ! 😂 always looking for a glove, neck warmer etc.

LEGO Movie part 2

Now on to the show

Movie reviews…

P-Dog….. fell asleep 5 minutes into it 😂

Gma…. thought it was ok, enjoyed listening to Weston & Dino’s discussion more

Dino , Weston & Jace …..loved it ❤️❤️❤️loves the snacks! 💯 💯 💯

Carter & Lover …. thought it was a little boring, glad when ” The END” appeared on the screen

Main mate…enjoyed his pretzel 🥨 snack, movie sucked lol

Granny….. after 2 bathroom trips ( thank you Weston ❤️) from what I seen , it was ok. The first one was much better


Weston was feeling not so well after the fun day, hopefully he’s not getting sick 🤒 he was feverish when we took him home tonight! Feel better buddy ❤️

Honestly I think the highlight of all 3 boys day….. was the new game.

Toilet 🚽 Trouble

They absolutely loved this game!!! Matter of fact, they were using the toilet as their cup to drink out of🤣🤣🤣 hey whatever keeps the peace

Goodnight to all, until Monday 😡, xoxo 😘

Lake/Ice Day today! â›¸ðŸ’

Went to a really cool barnwood shop. Bought a nice piece of wood for the coat rack. Didn’t realize this coat rack was going to be such a project. But now I’m into making it sweet. The shop is basically a warehouse full of wood. Just about every kind of wood you can imagine.


After that Carter, Lover, Dino and I played on the ice. What a perfect day on the lake. The ice is like glass. Skating, and carter pulling us on a sled. But the lake was so clear we found a fish frozen in the ice.

Dino loved it outside.

The big debate was …..which is easier to skate with…. Figure skating ⛸ Or Hockey 🏒 skating????

Definitely figure skating ⛸!!!

Once again… Lover rocked it out on the figure skating! Great job Lover

We grew up doing both, but I personally liked to figure skate much better.

My dad loves to speed skate. So if you see a p-dog go zooming around Long lake, it’s definitely him. Check out speed skates….

They have a super long blade.

So after a nice , sunny, cold day. It’s all about the hot cocoa! Duh 🙄 it’s mainly about the marshmallows in this family!

Stin…. remember the first time you brought Megan over to meet the family????? It was literally the coldest day of the year, freezing outside and they came over to ice skate. Poor Megan was such a trooper. She had this cute little outfit on and they battled the freeze, skating, and meeting our interesting family and all. Megan you are a rockstar ❤️❤️⛸❤️❤️⛸❤️❤️⛸❤️❤️⛸❤️

Tomorrow is going to be an awesome day! We have a big group going to see The LEGO part 2 Movie 🎥 🍿! We reserved just about a whole row of seats! The poor people in front of us! A few of the boys get a little squirmy during movies 🙈🙈🙈🙈🙈🙈🙈but I’m hoping with our ” snacks ” and were a little older now, that it’s going to be fine! 🙏🏻🙏🏻

Can’t handle the little Fro Boy ! Pure love ❤️

Think he has me beat ❤️❤️

happy Saturday to all, until tomorrow, xoxo 😘

A little bit of this and that

Another storm heading our way. Only this one is an ice storm. Wondering if they are going to call of school tonight 😬😬😬 poor Victoria never gets a break! Jace was Home sick 😷 today. And now possibly no school tomorrow! Feel better buddy ❤️

So after work I ran into Kroger to get toothpaste. Got caught up with the storm shoppers, and bought a cart load of stuff. Main mate & Carter got hooked up. But guess what…. I forgot the toothpaste!!😡

As I’m loading up my groceries, I found a pumpkin in the back of my Jeep! Thank you Stin!! The last time Jace and I visited Stin he gave Jace this pumpkin 🎃 ( not sure why they had a pumpkin, but Jace wanted it) well, he forgot it in my jeep and it had froze, then defrosted and became a nasty mushy pumpkin. Granted it was in my jeep a while , I thought I heard something rolling around back there. It was a good thing, because it forced me to clean out my car.

Pretty much exploded when I picked it up, thank goodness it was a little pumpkin!

Big shout out to ” MARIE” thank you for feeding my family tonight! Easy peasy dinner.
