According to my lady doctor, I am about to cross to the next level. This phase before getting "there" could take months or years, nobody knows for sure except that there is no stopping it. That should explain the mood swings (now there's my excuse!), occasional hot flashes (sometimes even after a cool shower) and night sweating (even with the A/C on). So, those in the know are probably familiar with what I am talking about... Peri-whatchamacallit is.
Now lunch, coffee or dinner talks with my girlfriends would not be just about our hubbies, the highs and lows of raising a family, our kids' prom, graduation, their first job or their shopping for black tuxes and blue bridesmaid dresses (dear me! no!), Lipitor or botox. In my next conversation with friends, I have something new to tell them. Yeah, we talk about anything and everything. So I would probably get the ball rolling and say "Hey, I'm teetering toward that phase na. Haha! See you there soon?"
Okay, that's just me trying to be cool about it... despite the mood swings... :D
