Oh my gosh, Today has been a crazy day. Hot flashes😩 and then freezing.❄ I don’t know what the freezing flashes are really called, so I will just call them freeze flashes. So they are hot flashes and freeze flashes.
Anyway they have been crazy today. I’m in Ohio and the high today was 75, so it was a decent day but one minute I would feel like it’s a hundred degrees and I’m going to die if I don’t get these clothes off and then the next minute I am absolutely freezing like I’m laying in the snow butt naked.☃ It drives me crazy when this happens. I know it’s just one of my fibro things but holy macaroni it’s crazy.
I also wanted to note that I’m now the mother of a 17 year old… WOW….💚 MY BABY GREW TO FAST! SLOW DOWN! SO BITTER SWEET! 💙 My oldest child is my son Naven and his birthday was Friday the 1st of September. 🎉 He is now 17 years old and yes it makes me feel old. 😄Haha.
We had such a lovely day. We started off at home with the birthday song 🎶 and extra chocolate cake 🎂 and finally gifts. 🎁
He got a Wolverine claw and all of the blades are really sharp. It’s a real claw. He collects swords, Claws, knives and things that are unique like that. 🗡 He’s very responsible with his collection and it’s something him and his grandfather do together. 👴 Naven is the only grandson so it’s their own special thing. So we don’t mind. His little sister is the parson who got him the Wolverine claw. 👫 She had saved up money so she could buy it for him. ( so cute! ) 💙 His girlfriend got him a poster he’s been wanting and he got a lot of cash. 💰 I think cash is just easier with older kids, and that’s what he had asked us for so that’s what we gave him. 💵
He had also asked for a family dinner night. 🍝🍪🍽 So we started off eating dinner at Skyline which is Navens ultimate favorite food/ place to eat.
Then we did a little shopping at a few places. 🛍 T.J.Maxx, five & below and Game stop. 🎮 We had such a great family night. 👪 It was just awesome. 💞 It was my self, my husband, my son naven who turned 17, his sister and of course the love of his life his girlfriend. 😍 So It was the five of us. 🖑 We had a great family night.
Then man oh mighty it hit me later. I felt so exhausted. 😔 I had no energy at all when I got home. I laid down and just couldn’t move. 🛏 Ugh.
The next day I had to go to my daughter’s cross country meet. 🏃 Thank goodness it wasn’t one that had a lot of walking for me to do because most of the meets do. 🚶 Anyhow, she did really good. She did PR which means she beat her previous fastest 2 mile run time. 🏃 She’s now at 15:43. Which is awesome. Just so awesome.
Her fastest speed in cross-country history since she started last year in 7th grade was 14:52. Sooo, we know she can go faster but the season just started.
It also really does count on what you eat, drink and how you treat your body. And… Definitely the night before. But she had obviously went with us for Navens birthday evening. So yes she ate Skyline and drank pop instead of water. 🍵 Which nothing that night was ideal for preparation for a cross country meet. But, all that I mind and she still ran 2 miles in 15:43. I sure can’t do that. I’d still be at the starting line today. Haha. I’m not a runner at all. I never was. She gets her love for running from dad. 💛
Anyway, it was a fabulous weekend. 💖 I know we have some cookouts 🍔🌭 tomorrow for the Labor Day holiday but I just wanted to kind of vent about these hot flashes and Freeze flashes that are driving me insane. Thanks for listening.😊
