Heat Wave

Okay, so I am writing this while my car is warming up. It is currently minus 30 with windchill here today. But in the midst of that the strangest thing is happening....

For any of you who know me well, you know that I am always cold. I wear thermal pjs year-round as well as socks, slippers and a sweater. One of the main reasons I drink so much coffee is because it is warm.

So I was as surprised as anyone last night when I was struck by the urge to take off my sweater because I was absolutely roasting! Troy said when he came to bed I had thrown the covers off. And yet again this morning, the windchill felt refreshing when I went outside! Did I just experience a hot flash?? It's way too early for that! I saw that Oprah where she was talking about hormone replacement therapy for women over 35. Really?? Could this be the start of pre-menopause?? I had enough trouble coping with my greys which are quickly forming an army on my scalp.

It is some consolation, however, that I am currently back in my warm hoodie (which, ironically is a hoodie from Maui - you can tell they made these for tourists...who in Maui needs a hoodie?!?) and my hands are cold. I think the car should be drivable now so I will head out into the cold and feel my age again - an age that is not ready for a heat wave.

I hope it's not pre-menopause!... When you live in a cold climate, I guess feeling warm can only be a good thing, right? Right??? Hmmmm.

Well it hasn't returned since this morning....maybe it was the wine from last night!

OH I wish I had hot flashes.
I am absolutely freezing at the moment. They don't tell you about the being cold part before you lose weight...all my insulation is gone :)

I know J gets really warm if he has liquor before he goes to bed-he heats up like a furnace as his body burns it off. It's like the dissolve some butter in your nighttime cocoa trick when you go your body simple fuel to burn off and be warm.
It doesn't work for me tho - I've tried. Not even a mojito will do it :)
