Three Day Quote Challenge – Day 1

Welcome to the Three Day Quote Challenge!!  I have been selected to participate by my very sweet and dear friend Xara Nahara.  I just love her name!  When I first met Xara I thought she was from the Middle East, with such an exotic name.  She is not, however, she is still quite exotic in my opinion.  I love her honesty and straight-forwardness!!  Thank you Xara!!  Please do visit her site.

Here are the Rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you.
  • Post a Quote for 3 consecutive days
  • Nominate 3 bloggers each day

I thought I would have some fun with this and post quotes about menopause.  For those of you sharing this journey with me, for those who have already traveled through it and for those of you who are “looking” forward to it, this is for you!!!  Enjoy…


I have so many of you in mind whom I believe would have fun with this…my first three nominations are:

  1.  Sabiscuit’s Catalog
  2.  Rose
  3.  Dr, Meg

If you have the time and would like to join in the fun, we would love to read your quotes.  There is no time frame involved, post when you are able!!  If you are unable to participate, no worries!  🙂

Hot Flash Mania!

I am a raving lunatic
Get the bleep away from me,
I’m having quite the hissy fit
Don’t make me count to three.

I’m vacuuming the house right now
I’m cleaning every stitch,
The sweat is beading off my brow
Here comes that Inner Bitch.

It’s bad enough I have to clean
But really must I Flash,
I’m so effin hot right now
What’s ok to smash?

My neck is sore, my arm is tired
I think I’m gonna cry,
Oh hurry and be done already
Why did I even try.


That is it, I am done!
I’ve put it all away,
I’ll sit down now and regroup some
Oh, I might even play.

I’m cooling back to normal
My temper’s flaring down,
Actually I’m chilly
Why’s my sweater on the ground?

Was I really oh so angry?
Absurdly out of control?
And why is everyone hiding,
Hey, where did you all go?

I’m better now, it’s me again
Please don’t be afraid,
Come on now, step back in
I’ve put away the blade!
