To my male readers, I’m sorry for what I’m about to say, but it needs to be said…

I love my period!  I mean, I’m not going to name my first born son Mensis or anything but, yeah sometimes it’s just a relief when it comes and takes it’s bloat with it!  ‘Member how I’ve been whining and complaining about how I’ve gained a stupid amount of weight very recently.  It looks like a significant amount of that weight was Flo making herself comfortable and retaining every ounce of water she could muster.  I was down four pounds this morning.  Literally overnight! 

I feel like my body is somewhere close to feeling normal again. 

Aline: I didn’t know you were from the Netherlands.  I thought you were Austrian.  Have I ever mentioned I went to school in the Netherlands, I love it there!

Have ya’ll ever had a Peanut Butter Cookie Larabar.  I’m  a fan of Larabars in general, but I think I’ll pass on the peanut butter cookie bar in the future-it was the greasiest “healthy treat” I’ve ever had.  I’m used to blotting my pizza but definitely not my snacks.  I went through four napkins to make this sucker edible.
