Yep, I'm talking about it.  We're back to another 40 Lessons over 40 blog where I share all of the things I have learned since hitting my forties. Today I want to talk about what I have learned since entering perimenopause (almost there, menopause! I'm coming for you!) fairly early in my forties. A little Backstory first.

Confessions of an Introverted  Mom Who Happens to Love People - 40 Lessons over 40 Post

We're on post 3 of the Forty Lessons over Forty series that I'm writing here on the blog; the one  where I confess to being an introverted soccer mom. And really, God help me. This one is a little awkward to write, but that's kind of the theme here so I'm just going to go with it.   I'm opening up in these posts, baring my soul if you will, and I kind of hate doing that, but since I opened my big mouth and started this thing, here we go...again.
