Just thought I'd do a quick post before I give the boys their baths and finish making the cookies for the next couple of days. I have to say that the last couple of months my moods before Aunt Flow's visit is absolutely horrible! On Saturday Scott and I had the most rip roaring of a fight and I can't really remember what it was about. Oh yeah...I do know. I had spent a couple of hours cleaning my bathroom(basically it's only my stuff in the bathroom so Scott even refers to it as "your bathroom"). This involved purging all the products that I don't use anymore, and sorting, organizing and scrubbing. I was quite proud of my accomplishment. I took out 4 small plastic shopping bags(safeway) of garbage out of the bathroom. It looked fantastic. Scott came in after fishing and then I mentioned, "did you notice my bathroom?" I like praise. I know some will say I shouldn't expect praise from anyone but I need to feel like I did a cat's ass job in cleaning..his response, "Uhh...yah...!"("Yah?" What kind of response is that?"I said to myself.) I gave him the "GLARE"....
Then I had prepared some Naan with mozza cheese and hummus for all of us to snack on and Scott said , "you gonna eat all of that?"
Okay this response set me into full blown PREMENSTRUAL hissy fit. I calmy sent the boys (I think the boys knew by my glaring eyes they were to vacate) downstairs with their share of the Naan and hummus and then mama let loose. I think I mentioned things from 15 years ago that he did that suddenly have irritated me. It was ugly, not just ugly but fugly to the bone. Scott snarked back that he wasn't being rude, but didnt' know if I could eat all of the Naan and realized as soon as the words came out that they were wrong. He apologized...I apologized and cried, and cried and cried. The only save in grace was he went into OT that night and it gave me time to reflect on my mood before I had to go luauing.
I was a nasty BEYOTCH! Why do I need someone patting me on the back saying, "good job Jenny...you clean well?" Why do I let PMS get the best of me??
So with the arrival of Aunt Flow yesterday I was back to myself.
I've noticed that not only am I having Pre-Menstrual Syndrome, but two weeks later I'm having Post Menstrual Syndrome. WTF??? So basically I've become a moody, pain in the ass, royal beyotch!!!
Oy...had to vent!!!
This post is intended as a way of venting. In no way am I inferring that I am in an unhappy marriage or that I am living an unhappy life. I have a wonderful, real marriage, but it ain't all a bed of roses...(maybe one week of the month!)...warning this post may cause a sense of irritability....
Hope all is well!!
