Change of life......

So to speak.....

I haven't forgotten you; I have been checking my newsfeed daily for any articles about menopause/bioidentical hormones that I thought my be of interest to you.  Nothing interesting.

I do have big news, however, I am in the midst of packing up my life to move about 30 miles into the city of Charlotte (NC).  I sold my condo and I have a great new little place in a wonderful part of town.  While I have enjoyed my time in the Lake Norman, NC area, being in the city of Charlotte will allow me opportunities to do lots of cool things that right now are a (relatively) long car ride.....something that challenges the endurance in my back.

It's been a whirlwind spring, between the two surgeries and fiasco with my arm, the house being on the market, getting it sold and getting my life packed up.  So far, so good (and I know the hormone optimization does help with this)....I haven't had a complete meltdown...yet.  I'm a bit of a type A personality, am a fusspot by nature and like to have everything absolutely under control..........and any of you who have moved at any point in your adult life know that moving is one of those life events where things are never quite totally in control.  I'm being very mindful of both my back/hip and my arm, so it's slow going, but I'm getting there.  The big move is next Monday, June 16, and the house closing is later in the week.  In the midst of all that is my birthday on June 18..........which for me is a month long celebration!

I'm excited and a bit anxious, and of course have much to do in these next couple weeks.  I'm back in the outdoor swimming pool where I am living currently, and the new complex has three pools, so I am hoping to get back on track with my workouts.  It's been nearly a year since I have been able to really get in consistent, challenging workouts, and I have missed it.

If I don't post for the next week or so, know that I am thinking of all of you and I will be back to hormone posts soon! Stay cool, stay safe!
