The Seven Dwarves . . . Revisited July 28, 2011

Posted by nrhatch in Humor, Joke, Mindfulness, People.

Hi Ho . . .

Hi Ho . . .

Out of our minds we go . . .

No wonder the Evil Queen

Treated Snow White with disdain

Suffering from Menopause

Is such a dreadful pain!

Life is good, but life is short.  Bad things happen.  Laugh when you can.

Survival tips for family members:

No rules.  Just write!


1. Lisa (Woman Wielding Words) - July 28, 2011

🙂 I’m already often a combination of Doc, Grumpy, Sneezy and Dopey. Is this what I have to look forward to?

nrhatch - July 28, 2011

Perhaps. 😉

Except for the occasional Hot Flash, I’ve been relatively unscathed ~ but it throws some women out of whack and off the track.

Choo Choo . . . Menopause coming through.

2. Cindy - July 28, 2011

Yeah, ain’t it fun? Not for sissies 😦

nrhatch - July 28, 2011

Has Menopause: The Musical made its way to SA?

Rollicking good fun! 😀

3. SuziCate - July 28, 2011

I do not look forward to it, I have enough aggravations as it is!

nrhatch - July 28, 2011

I hear ya, Suzi.

There are pluses and minuses to getting older. The best part for me . . . more freedom. Aah . . . that’s better. 😀

4. Tilly Bud - July 28, 2011

So that’s what’s wrong with me! 😀

nrhatch - July 28, 2011

Sure. Blame “it” on menopause. 😉

5. Linda - July 28, 2011

It threw me completely under the bus and started a long time ago. I must be having the longest one on record!

nrhatch - July 28, 2011

I have no idea how long menopausal symptoms last . . . maybe they persist until we take our final bow? Ack! 😦

6. adeeyoyo - July 28, 2011

I hardly noticed anything myself, maybe a little bitchy and certainly sleepy, but then I was diagnosed with underactive thyroid which accounted for the tiredness… Anyway it was virtually over before it began!

nrhatch - July 28, 2011

So, are you up and out of bed, Denise? Hope you’re home soon!

7. Maggie - July 28, 2011

I’m going to share this with my mom. It’s pretty funny!

nrhatch - July 28, 2011

Cool! Life is FUNNY . . . as long as we don’t take it too seriously. Hope she gets a kick out of it. 😀

8. Rosa - July 28, 2011

I’m a long ways from menopause still, but I’ve been having hot flashes for years!!

nrhatch - July 28, 2011

Really? Caused by something other than a drop in estrogen production?

9. Barbarann Ayars - July 28, 2011

I know I’m warped but I miss them: all seven dwarves. I spent thirty years of my life scheduling, ordering, listening to, praying with, and crying over women in an ob/gyn practice. Really young women with too much estrogen, middle aged women with barely enough estrogen, and menopausal women without enough estrogen to keep them from driving over cliffs, plotting the deaths of their husbands, kids, friends, you know how it goes. With or without estrogen, the behaviors of women driven by hormones or lack of resemble each other. Pregnant women speak through their static and are often incomprehensible. Sometimes they are all seven dwarves. I loved them anyway. What is important to remember is that whatever they just said, whatever their age, they didn”t mean it; don’t take it personal, try not to die of what comes out of their mouths. By the time I was menopausal we were sometimes dueling at the check-in window. There is a huge difference between me who had one dreadful hot flash and done, and the nurse up in the O.R. who has dissolved into a corner, can’t get a grip for hours and totally needs help with her relentless menopause. I can laugh. She certainly can not. Laughing is far better.

nrhatch - July 28, 2011

Thanks for weighing in on this Barbara. Life’s challenges, including menopause, do vary from woman to woman, don’t they?

10. Penny - July 28, 2011

The fact that we are aging is something we cannot change. We can only change our attitudes about the whole process. I chose to find the humor in it all! I imagined that I was sitting naked in an ice igloo! Sipping on ice and tequila! 🙂

nrhatch - July 28, 2011

Exactly! That a girl! 😉

11. Booksphotographsandartwork - July 29, 2011

Now here is something that is NO laughing matter when it comes to menapause. Wiskers. I am not kidding you. Only a few here and there but this is not acceptable! The tweezers have become my best friend. I might start wearing them as a necklace!

granny1947 - July 29, 2011

Lol @ Linda…we all have those…I only have one but it annoys the hell out of me.

12. Kate Shrewsday - July 29, 2011

These are really funny Nancy….LOVE the second one….

nrhatch - July 29, 2011

I came across this cartoon while straightening up my office and art supplies. Glad it tickled your funny bone. It did mine. 😀

13. granny1947 - July 29, 2011

Thank you NR…LOVE the musical!!!
I think my menopause is over.
Have decided I am just a natural bitch!

nrhatch - July 29, 2011

Sometimes I’m tired, cranky, and bitchy due to lack of sleep. Other times, I’m just cranky. 😉

14. eof737 - July 29, 2011

You are truly a riot Nancy… Glad I never got to meet those nasty ladies. 😉

nrhatch - July 29, 2011

I’ve met a few “psychos” in my life . . . they’re scary. And unpredictable. 😯

15. Rufus' Food and Spirits Guide - July 29, 2011

Thanks for the laugh! Not that menopause is funny, walking backwards slowly….

nrhatch - July 29, 2011


Watch out . . . that psycho is headed straight for you! 😉

16. CMSmith - July 29, 2011

Menopause is kind of nice in a way, you can blame a myriad of problems on it — weight gain, feeling out of sorts, weight gain, forgetfulness, weight gain . . .

nrhatch - July 29, 2011

LOL! Yes, indeed . . . weight gain. 😦

At the moment, my weight is holding steady ~ mid-way between when I got married and its “apex.” In short, there’s room for improvement.

17. clarbojahn - July 29, 2011

Love the humor! great post! so funny!

Fortunately my menopause is over but it was a B____h while it was here. I suffered more from hot flashes than mood swings. But the hot flashes left me cranky. so glad it’s over. I love the still waters.

nrhatch - July 29, 2011

Hot flashes are bad . . . especially when they come in waves. Ack!

Glad you are back to still waters.

18. sweetdaysundertheoaks - July 29, 2011

Menohhhhhhhhhhhhhpause. I am past the worst, but seriously I now know what my Mom was going through. The hot flashes were bad but hey others could sympathize, it was the anxiety that drove me crazy.

nrhatch - July 29, 2011

Living with anxiety makes everything harder. Sounds like the worst is over for you. Glad to hear it.

19. Naomi - July 30, 2011

OMG, this is scary, Nancy…best I brace myself!!

nrhatch - July 30, 2011

Keep plenty of ice in the fridge! 😀

For many women, it’s just a quick blip on the radar ~ a rite of passage. Assume you’ll be in their company . . . until your inner psycho appears. 😆

20. therealsharon - July 31, 2011

Thank God I have plenty of time before THIS hits….right now, I have the other evil word that also starts with MEN….ugh!

nrhatch - July 31, 2011

Freedom awaits. 😀
