Aunt Flo's Last Visit!!!!

Flo showed up on Monday girls....2 wks to the day before i visit the castle. The nerve..>I too and muddling through this visit praying i have enough supplies to keep her from making messes and hoping she leaves earlier this month with not as much pain and suffering as her last visit...but this is the LAST time she will darken my door step. I told DH i was chaning the locks the day she leaves and i am asking for her keys back so she cant try to use them to jimmy the lock LOL

Aunt Flo's Last Visit!!!!

Aunt Flo has decided to play mind games with me. She's been peeking over my shoulder, eavesdropping on my "hystersister" time, and has decided to play a little reverse psychology. She's disappeared. (And NO, I'm not pg. Hahaha!) I've been keeping her at bay with a NuvaRing (which is only slightly better than Aunt Flo), but sure enough, I take it out, and she's nowhere to be found. She doesn't want to door closed forever, so she's trying to fake me out! PRETENDING she's not coming back, trying to convince me I'll miss her when she's gone, and do I really want to change the locks on that door? Well, she can't stay away forever. I know she's lurking around the house, peeking in my windows, and pretty soon, curiosity will get the best of her and she'll have to pop in, just to check up on things. I know her plan. She will be back...

Geez, I hate mind games.

Aunt Flo's Last Visit!!!!

Wow Pink Monkey....She's really become a conniving wench hasn't she? I guess desperate times call for desperate measures hmm? You've got her scared and for good reason!!! She can feel those boots on her heinie as we speak!!! (I got mine at the "Take Your Life Back Boutique" product number 4433-Aunt Flo Heinie Kickin' can get them there if you don't have yours yet...they even wrap them in a plain brown wrapper for shipping so they won't tip her off!)You've almost got her licked !

Jen, Hang in there sweetie...she's almost outta here....see above for how to get your boots!

Jean....Boy I wish I'd have thought of that...I can just imagine the looks on their faces! <<something like that I'll bet! What a smart funny gal you are!!!

Aunt Flo's Last Visit!!!!

thanks so much for the signature reply janice, i felt like a right plonker trying to get it to work!

the best thing about this site is that when i get up first thing in the morning (after the mum in law has taken kids to school) i can log onto all my sisters and have 8 or 9 threads to read and catch up on, i hope you all get lots of beauty sleep while im up and awake so you can keep them coming for me the next day.

ps hubbie's getting annoyed at all thetime im on the site as he cant play his online game before work!

feel good


For those with the cabin fever or feeling mis at around a week or two + post op, I give you HOPE. Yesterday was a big day for me (3 weeks and one day), everything suddenly felt really good, no pain etc. I went for a 20 minute walk, had coffee with friends, had several visitors (and they were all the perfect guests; no I am not back on the morphine), and I didn't nod off once.

(A little James Brown music here....) I FEEL GOOD!

I Was a bit sore at end of day, but nothing major. I know I still have to take care, but feel I reached a positive milestone. I hope it helps others to look forward to feeling much better, just around the corner. I know that we all heal at different rates, but only last week I was pondering, "Have I got another 3 weeks of this?" and getting despondent, so if you do feel low, tell yourself that it will pass.

One quick "ovary" story. On my walk I bumped into a friend of a friend who asked me if I was on HRT. I said that no, I didn't need to be as my ovaries were left in and everything feels ok. Her reply, "Are you SURE your overies were left in? Because my husband told me that definitely you had a TOTAL hysterectomy and in that case you had them out". I assured her that I did in fact still have them yet she still looked doubtful, as if I was delusional! And I have no idea where her husband would have got that information from! People really are gossiping about our ovaries girls!! It's so funny.

Janice, suggestion for the cash surplus: a monthly magazine subscription (I feel it has to be something that is MONTHLY!).

Aunt Flo's Last Visit!!!!

Ooooh, I like the "monthly reward" system! Maybe a manicure once a month, or a little more expensive than super-plus tampons and mattress pads, but a pedicure would be a real treat! I also like the magazine subscription idea. But there will be a lot less to read without the tampon ads and articles about cramp relief... (hehehe!)

Personally, I've already kind of stocked up on my reward. I've been gradually collecting bra & panty sets THAT ACTUALLY MATCH!!! Even white ones. And just plain pretty panties. And when I'm sure that Aunt Flo (and her ghost, post-op bleeding) are actually done haunting me, I'm throwing all the stained ones away! Everything that has a stain is gone! I can't wait!

So glad you got to enjoy your "get away" with the girls MP. Sounds like your feeling pretty good and upbeat. That is way too funny that someone tells "YOU", what kind of surgery you had. People!!!! If they only knew how stupid they sound. LOL. Loving the idea of a monthly reward system. I decided, my first thing to do, is for me and hubby to go away for a romantic weekend, maybe a bed & breakfast type of thingy. Hmmmmmm......the possibilities!!!! Haven't had a honeymoon yet, and it will be 5 yrs. in August. And, I won't have to worry about Aunti Flo, coming to intrude!!!!!!

Aunt Flo's Last Visit!!!!

Such great ideas ladies! Loving the big reward idea, and also the monthly reward concept...wonder if I can get away with both! Hmmm....I do love pedicures...The nice thing about a monthly reward is that we get to be permanently pampered princesses!! Oh the joy!

Megapixel, I am very encouraged to hear that you're feeling so much better! I ventured out of the house today for the first time (one week out) and I'm feeling like I got hit by a truck!!! I definitely have that "I'm going to be an invalid forever" feeling! Good to hear some hope from the voice of experience...

I'm extra sore from laughing my heinie off over your friend and her "insider information" on YOUR hyst!!! I just wish I could have seen the look on your face! And kudos to you for being so sweet about it....if that's not an invitation to go "hormonal" on someone I don't know what is!

PinkMonkey...what are these.."pretty matching bra and panty sets" you speak of?...
Janice prob about the signature thingy...I had to ask too!

Aunt Flo's Last Visit!!!!

Ah, matching bras and panties are cute little things, the bra and the panties are made out of the same fabric (so they match) and they cost me a fortune! But it just kills me to buy them and within a few days, "mess them up". Basically, I won't be avoiding pretty panties because of Aunt Flo. I'll feel free to splurge a little, knowing they'll last me longer!

(If you are a semi-bigger girl like me, Lane Bryant has the most fabulous lingerie, and that's where I buy my matching bra & panty sets. They make me feel young and feminine. What good is a pretty lacy bra when you're wearing stained granny panties down below?)
