Okay. I knew I had to check back here when I saw b.t.'s name on the list.
I'll give you cake. Or a pie in the face. Just too funny!

I wish my feet were warmer. I am temperature sensitive in the opposite direction to what you are Vera Blue. I am often too cold.

Of course this generation will get old. On the outside anyway. Getting wrinkles and grey hair is traditional.

My doctor was more sports minded. My fibroid was a golf ball, then a baseball and finally a soccer ball when they took it out. I am very glad we didn't make it to a beach ball!!!!!!!!!!

LPBeier, when? I'm waiting 12 years! And patience isn't my middle name.

I feel bad for bt - I think he's feeling left out.

If you want, bt, you can start a thread about prostate issues as men age (and all the stuff that goes along with it) and we'll drop in and make "supportive" remarks!
Your Power-surging Pal, Terry

Oh my gosh. You guys!! I am laughing so hard I have tears running down my face. BT I swear if you make one more teenager look at me like I'm nuts I'm coming to Joisey and giving you what for! Seriously though, too funny!!

Ladies, you have my sympathies and my fervent wish that all your symptoms will be shortlived.

I wanted to mention that business about forgetfullness....but I forgot.

Actually, it's the words.. I forget words, and I don't mean rarely used words like antidisestablishmentarianism or anything like that. I mean easy words, like butter and garage. \

Did I ever tell you that I recently forgot how to extricate myself from my own car? I've been driving Nissan Altimas for 5 years now. This particular model I've had for just under 2 years. About 6 months ago, after a short drive to...well, I don't remember where I was going, but when I got home, I looked at the door and couldn't remember how to get out. The entire panel looked foreign to me. It was as though I'd discovered myself in a Klingon bird of prey and the exit was cloaked. Without a doubt, it freaked me out, especially since my boyfriend got out of the passenger side with ease.

The whole incident was an absolute shame.


.............what was I saying????

And for anyone keeping track, May now has a circle. Yeah ovaries, way to empty the nest. C'mon seven, gimme lucky seven.

OMG Vera, that's hysterical! Mostly because the same type of things have been happening to me, but they weren't too funny when I thought I was the only one! The loss of words is so frustrating because it pops up at the most inconvenient times - like when I'm directing (read: yelling at) my kids. It's hard make them think I mean business when I can't remember what the heck I was trying to say (yell) at them! I really hope this goes away.

Like your car, there are times when suddenly I can't remember how to work a machine that I use all the time. It doesn't seem to last for long - maybe 30 seconds - but it's a really bizarre feeling. Your Klingon analogy really nails it.

Glad to hear you're another egg down! I'm scared to think how many I may have left - too depressing. (My theory is that I'm way behind since I spent 8 or 9 years pregnant. I'm 51 now. Do you think I could still be doing this til I'm 60?????)

See, Fisher'sMom, you post an interesting question. What does happen to all those eggs who were next in the rotation while you're incubating the winner?

The way I understand it, a baby girl is born with a full house of ovaries, yes? She'll pass one every 4 weeks till the nest is empty, yes? So, if I wanted to guess how many I was born with, what..do I just multiply how many months have passed since I was 11, subtract the pregancies and then I'll know what I got when the egg fairy passed my cradle?

I have a better question....why does this kind of information even interest me? Do you think my posing this question has inspired anyone to actually do the math???????

I'm going to go work out now...while I still have enough eggs left to help me lose weight. To hear those other ladies tell it, you need a basket of eggs to help with weight loss.

(and for all of you who are trying to do the math, don't forget to take into allowance twins, both fraternal and identical you get a bonus if your twins were fraternal, and for god's sake, don't forget to count the leap years)
