The Redneck Princess

Hello??? Is there anyone out there?

Hello??? Is there anyone out there?

As usual, I have been obscenely absent…

I apologize. I suck…and not in the good way.

Life has been busy.

We have been gardening, working and sleeping, not necessarily in that order.

Things are looking good around the castle, and I promise the next sunny day we have, I will take some updated shots.

We and by that I mean Bruce have built a new veggie garden and got it all planted. Hopefully we are going to have way too much food this summer…I was thinking a veggie stand would be an awesome side job, if only there were about 10 more hours in our day.

And then there is the menopause…

I know…the boys are running screaming right now…run buggers run

The hot flashes are a fucking nightmare.

No one tells you that they aren’t just hot flashes.

That they are mini panic attacks that rack your whole body, make you sweat like a pig and go red in the face, I mean how the fuck are you supposed to hide that?

I was thinking it would just be periods of time where I would finally for the first time in my life be warm. Ya…sure.

Denial is a wicked bitch isn’t she?

I think it is making me fucking swear more too. Maybe not, but I am using that as a fucking excuse.

Apparently it is making Barbara, who I work with, have sympathy hot flashes. So she is cursing me fairly constantly now. She is 70 and she said she was sure she was done with them until I brought it up again, but really…no one wants to hot flash alone do they? So I am grateful.

Don’t even get me started on the night sweats…

Not having a period is rocking though. 16 days late now…loving that. It nearly makes up for the flashes, nearly…

And NO. I am not pregnant.

I am way to bitchy to raise a kid now.

I wouldn’t mind a big hug or two from my cute little nephew though, if only he wasn’t a whole world away.

In other news, I am booked on Saturday for more tattooing, my Mother is having a jammer after reading that I am sure. Don’t worry Mom, it’s just a few more flowers and some vines. I will post some pics when done. I promise.

Other than that, there is some health stuff going on with Bruce that we are dealing with. I won’t get into it, because he will kill me, but we are taking things day by day and getting it taken care of and hopefully soon he will be as close to 100% as an old man can be.

Did I mention he just had a birthday? He is old now. I mean older than me by a mile, or at least a year and a half.

And I think I just broke my TV. I have no volume…it’s not muted, shut up…I thought of that. Goddamn it, now what do I do? Reading lips is not one of my skills, I know I need a new tv…but the timing kinda sucks, just saying. GAH…

Ok, well I should go. I have dinner to serve and apparently now a tv to fix. It’s hard being versatile. Hahahahha..who am I kidding, I am gonna get Bruce to fix it. Either that or we are gonna have a tv with a great picture and no fucking volume…

Good thing it’s summer and I don’t have time for tv anyways.

Hope all is well with everyone and you are all happy and healthy!!

Drop and line and say hi, and I promise to post some pics soon.

Bye for now luvvies…xoxoxo

    Hey! This post is fuckin’ hilarious!!! Menopause sounds kinda like what it would feel like to go ta hell. LOL. Fuck! You gotta look into remedies or supplements. You need
    some fuckin’ relief.
    Lol. Okay I’ll stop cursing now. I just wanted to copy ya. Hey, if you see Jake or Stacey in CR…give my brother a gotchy pull…okay, that might be too weird. Never mind.
    Keep living. LIVE, LOVE, LAUGH!

    Glad to hear the good news from you and yeah I’m going through the male menopause which seems to involve me being a grouchy asshole and turning into my dad… not good. As usual good to read your blog and good that you are far too busy living and loving to write regularly!

    Hang in there!
    Heyyyy at least you can watch TV online :) Might be a day late and a dollar short, but hey it is better than lip reading. And fly away with life, your readers will always just be a fingertip away from catching up to ya.

    I am a little young for menopause but from the sounds of it… maybe I should start planning now haha!

    Hey Donna, good to hear your updates. My flashes went on for years – sorry to put a damper on it! teehee!

    Well good to see you here when you’re here! Blog when you can- those veggies and hot flashes won’t wait. Can’t wait to see the new ink pics. I’m ready for more but have to find a new artist since mine is west coast.

    Do you miss us?

    We are getting ready for our month-long driving trip. (Can you believe it’s been about a year since our visit to you!) We leave Friday. I’ve had no time to blog. This past school year for the kiddos was brutal. Seriously, 2nd grade sucked for my son.

    I’m supposed to be packing, yet, I saw my e-mail notification from you, and felt sentimental. I truly wish we were heading back up your way so we could have a longer visit. This year, we are heading toward Vegas, then Salt Lake city, Utah. Nothing too interesting there…it’s work related, but I do get to see my friend from 4th grade! THEN…we head to our main destination Colorado. Looking forward to that. I might blog…I might not.

    Contact me on facebook woman. I want to keep in touch! :) I’ve had a couple of hot flashes over a period of time. They really do slam ya outta no where! Holy crap! thanks for the warning…that way I don’t think I’m crazy in a few years when they hit me more regularly.

    Kids (Samantha & Gibson & Ozo) say HI!

    Okay, I am thoroughly ‘loving’ this post. Misery loves company though, right? Ha..ha..
    Eh, I’ve been slacking on the blogging thing too. Who cares! Get to it when you get to it. Make no apologies, babe.
    ((Menopause….Arrgghhhhh!!!)) Cause it ain’t enough that we go through 9 months per child incubating a person that is going to drive us mad for the next 18…umm…’plus’ years, but then our bodies reproductive system has to punish us further while on its way out. (And men think they have it tough. What-the-fuck-EVER!)
    Anyway, I had to leave comment on this one. It was just waaaay too tempting to pass up. And yeah, your period may be slacking now, but isn’t it sucky that you can no longer plan around the damn thing because it’s hit and miss? I say, cuss away. Venting is good for proper hormone balance. :)

    Hi, Hot daughter, You didn’t tell me it was Bruces’ birthday. I have a present for him, must have known subconsciously, LOL. I will mail it today. Sorry to hear you are having the wonderful hot flashes. Now you can stop laughing at me when I get them, which I have had since I was 40, you have a few years to go. Just what you wanted to hear right? Oh and by the way Theo doesn’t want to be hugged, he is too busy getting around on his own,. I guess you will just have to hug me LOL. Have a great day. You know we love you a bunch. Mom
