I believe I have whined, complained and yes, even bitched about how HRT has destroyed the thermostat in my body here in the Condo. Go ahead and say it, "no one twisted your arm to start HRT Cyrsti, so get the hell over it."
I accept all of that except - after a brief respite from the minus teens wind chills we are having here in my part of Ohio, we are expecting temps to go to 20 year lows next week. Really?
I have a confession to make: Cyrsti's Condo does not over look the mountains and the beach in the tropics but is in a circa 1860's drafty big brick building in Ohio. Our weather extremes though, do make you appreciative when Momma Nature throws you a bone and the temp rises to 50 in January - summertime.
To combat the cold though, I'm heading south again- to Cincinnati where the outside temp will be nearly as cold but the inside temp will be toasty with the help of a "B.A.F" - a big ass fireplace. Sorry about all the cussing in this Cyrsti's Condo post but this cold weather just gets me in this mood.
Setting aside all my whining, there are benefits to facing up to this cold "thang" as a girl. First of all, you are allowed to be cold by other women and men. Secondly, you can stylishly "layer" yourself up to stay warm and look good too. My best purchase of the season so far were my fur lined snow boots which fit over my hand knitted wool knee socks for warm "tootsies". Of course my "imagined" overstock of sweaters, leggings and scarves all of the sudden isn't so overstocked at all!
It's too bad that "karma", "cold" and "cussing" all don't begin with a "C". If they did, I could come up with some sort of inspired thought of why Karma was getting even with me for making fun of women all those years for being cold.
How about, I just can't or I give up Momma Karma, I'm sorry! You were right and you win!
