Detox update – the misery

Day 3 of my green tea detox started off miserably.. Tea lady still off sick so I thought I have no choice but to skip. After all my hands are completely incapable of preparing my own little cup of green gunkiness.  Big sigh..but enter the wonderful colleague that spoils me with coffee way too often and whalaaa… cup of deliciousness :(

So I’m on cup number two.. I think the green tea is definitely altering my mood.  I definitely feel like I’m having a PMS day.  Ladies you would understand.  Not the moody I-want to-kill-hubby-and-kids moody, but the I-feel-like-crying-because-that-tampon-add-is-just-so-beautiful moody.  I can’t deal with anything. Dogs on Facebook – sad, Kids on X-Factor – sad, Smiles from people I work with – sad.  I blame the tea.

So what to do when you can’t melt into an unrealistic puddle of sadness.  It really is tough being a women, I’d much rather just scratch my balls and down tons of green tea like a boss.  But it seems my balls have retracted into my body (and yeah girls, this really does happen to men) and left with very little testosterone to man up, I do kinda feel a little fragile.  Yet again, I blame the stupid tea!

Not sure if this was the best idea, but then i haven’t had the greatest world changing ideas of late. None the less I will finish, or I’ll be finished come end of the week. Either way I will keep you updated. Purely because this is so life changing interesting and I’m sure you have nothing better to do with your time but to read this.

P.S  Feel free to shower me with gifts and comments, and and.. seeing as I’m high on green tea and filled with toxic levels of estrogen coursing through my green tinted veins I need all the support I can get :)

Green tea detox delight…uh…no

Green tea..hmmmm… uhm.. nope…  the word green evokes so many positive feelings… nature, freshly cut grass, good health, a clean world, little drops of morning dew on a tiny leaf, sustainability etc etc. But let me tell you one thing, it evokes absolutely none of those emotions in me when it is connected to the word *Tea*.

I am going through a semi mid life crisis where I feel old and tired and more flabby than usual. So what does any normal urban house wife and mother do?? Google a solution.  Aaah, my good old friend Google, we share an intimate relationship, you know my deep desires, my dark secrets, my every desire and symptom… oh wait, Google thinks I’m dying.  So hold that thought. It might not be the best idea (EVER) to google any symptoms you might have as Google doctors would undoubtedly give you a diagnosis that only House MD would be able to cure.

Makes no difference in my need to feel a little less fatigued and have a bit more spring in my step.  The thought has crossed my mind that my oh-so-gorgeous-partner might be the cause of my lack of sleep, because besides his dashing looks he is not a bad conversationalist it seems.. those attributes paired with a glass of red deliciousness might leave most ladies a little tired.

Sigh… anyway …focus – another thing I seem to struggle with :)   So back to the topic… I am doing a green tea cleanse. Five tiny cups of hot greenish looking water with no added sugar for pleasure and no milk just to sap away any possibility of pleasure per day. Yip, I know it sound so easy, a walk in the park, but it is NOT!  I managed 3 tiny cups and one mug (made for me by our tea lady)  yesterday and opted to down it instead of taking small torturous mouthfuls, after all. sometimes it is just best to swallow right?.  It made me feel..wait for it… the same :( . But it was the first day of five, so on to today. Just finished cup number 2 and doubt I’ll manage more than 3… after all our tea lady is off sick today, so all in all not REALLY my fault.

I feel a little lighter, not sure if it is all the weedy looking greens just going to my head though, but will see after this week.  I recon I will be nothing short of an expert and will be able to give you all some sound advise if you wanted to try it .. wink wink, lol.  After this I will definitely try something else, my friend Google has the best ideas.

Not to brag but…

I suppose all mothers brag, but I have moments where I realize I have sooo much reason to brag!  I have two beautiful daughters. They do very well at school so a good combination of beauty and brains :D

Then besides the good grades and pretty smiles they also do well in music.  Yes yes it’s just singing and playing guitar, but none the less. One just made it through to the finals of a local singing contest.

Having just celebrated my youngest’s tenth birthday it made me reflect and look back on all the baby pics and what not. They have changed so much.

I’m so proud of the young ladies they are turning into. Big smile

Yip..

Almost 10

So June marks my baby girl’s birthday… Double figures.. BIG sigh. It’s strange how she seems so little but so big at the same time. Suddenly her legs seem to be endless and she has been growing at at rate that would put the best genetically modified vegetables to shame.

Double figures… Finally turning 10. Her birthday marks the point in my life where I will never again have a child that is young enough to be in the range of 1 to 9.

I feel a sense of loss. She will always be the baby, but it is still so final. She has been studying for her first exam that starts tomorrow. Big kid stuff, long gone are the small tests. The pictures of stick men and big yellow sunshines in the corners of a page has turned into intricate family portraits.  Smelling nice now dominates over the musky smell of a dirty todler. Pink lips and perfect hair has taken the place of uncombed messy bed hair.  Sigh, how things change

I don’t feel entirely ready to give over to the changes and looking at the other 3 older kids it is definitely getting harder seeing them all grow up so fast and becoming more independent. Yip this mom will definitely suffer from empty nest syndrome when it arrives.  For now at least they still demand to be tucked into bed and I still get to do their hair… It’s the little things.
