Trying for a bit of perspective

Good things must be my focus if I am to make it through the next week and a half.

Like----for starters, I have spent today and last Wednesday with a professional organizer who came to my house and helped me seriously muck out my basement. Every single toy, crayon, clothespeg, ancient campaign button, childhood memento, and sewing thingy has been examined, sorted, classified, & packed, thrown out or recycled.

She's coming back in a week and a half and we're going to possibly tackle a closet or two (eeeeekk), but in the meantime, my basement looks like a magazine ad! Weeeeeeeee!!!!!

Next good thing, a new cycle isn't so depressing cause it means new hope for the big "O" eh? No, no, no not orgasm, ovulation! I can have loads of fun with my handy dandy toys, the big goal is a normal functioning endocrine system. So, thank goodness my DHEA has arrived, and I'm going to start taking it tomorrow. The odd came in a couple of brown paper envelopes, addressed from various names. I swear if my doctor didn't tell me to order it from this place, I'd wonder if I'd accidentally ordered some ex. Oh well, onward and upward, right?

Next good thing is, I spent yesterday windowshopping with Mr.Cotta and we tried sitting on couches and chairs and staring at beautiful things we can't afford yet. It was fun looking at it all though!

I have to go write a fake cheerful letter to my kid now, maybe snap a dorky picture of us all, and write odd little sayings on it....Perez Cotta, anyone? hehehe


  1. Hi - saw you online but you popped off right before I got to say hi. Just wanted to tell you that I hope you're feeling okay today.This post looks like you're managing okay, at least. :)

  2. Wow. A professional organizer? That sounds like a fantasy. I should have one, or be one.

    I hope the next week and a half goes well. And have fun with the big "O."

  3. Your basement sounds divine! Here's hoping for good ovulation and wonderful things this month.

  4. Wow an organizer.. I would love one for my mother (amom). She would blow a fuse at me if I got her one though. She has threatened me with her mess on a time or two. Joking of course. So are you an adoptee? You can email me Sorry the joke was just so adoption for me yesterday. I just gotten off the phone with my mother. I had asked her to find another date to celebrate me on. I suspect with good cause that my birthday is a false one. It was a very tearful call.

  5. The reason for the multiple paper wrappings? One website says:

    Health Canada considers DHEA to be a controlled substance. Products that fall under this category are available only with a doctor’s prescription. It is illegal to import DHEA into Canada for personal use. If you and your doctor(s) decide that you need DHEA to maintain your health, have your doctor call or e-mail Health Canada’s Special Access Programme: 613-941-2108 (between 8:30 am and 4:30 pm Eastern Standard Time) or 613-941-3061 after 4 pm. e-mail:

    Tee hee!

  6. I need the name of your closet organizer. My basement looks like a bomb went off.

  7. totally jealous of your personal organizer. fantasizing about that now.

    And here's hoping for a peaceful and fertile month ahead.
