Ah yes, the rain has come to clean us of our over indulgence of the sun. And, we welcome it. The funny thing about living in an area that has a moderately comfortable temperature all year round is that when we get a slight change, everyone is almost giddy with excitement. It is one of the reasons I have grown to love Southern California despite its appearance of hedonism. You really can see that the pleasures of life reside in the little things.
I had 3, count 'em 3, doctors visits within the last 2 weeks. Neuro, gyno and my regular doctor. All of them told me the same thing: I am young at 33, the weight will come off after a few months of not being on birth control, and I absolutely cannot take my normal round of meds if I become pregnant. They also all told me my stress level is too high and I need to find an outlet for it. Apparently my job moving out of state, the economy taking a poop and my job already being high stress has been taking a toll on me. I can't imagine how anyone could have come up with that one. The good news is that I bought a treadmill and my after work walks help me wind down.
So, as I sit in my living room with my trusty wubby (aka Jordan the dog) at my side and I listen to the rain. It is difficult for me to imagine moving away from this beautiful state I call home for another state where I cannot find anything other than the financial attractiveness in it.
