The worst part of being a woman

 
I haven't been blogging.  And I haven't read many blogs lately either.  Sorry - I need to work on that.  I've been busy, and did actually go out of town for a few days.  I've got some pics to post and a story to tell, but it will have to wait.  Right now I just need to rant for 30 seconds.
 
I'm having a crappy-ass day - the kind that makes me want to curl up in the corner and sob.  That is the worst part of being a woman.  I'd like to think I'm a pretty strong and independent girl - and if I was a man I'd just be pissed off today.  Maybe hit the wall or something.  But instead, I've got too much estrogen surging through my body, and I'm about one second away from becomming a blubbering idiot.
 
And for no real reason either - I've just had "one of those days".  You know - the type where I thought a co-worker had my back, but then he threw me under the bus instead (figuratively speaking).  And I'm having "issues" with a friend and my husband is annoyed with me.  Oh - and I started my period today, one week early, and I'm so freakin' tired from Bryn being up half the night.  Hmmmm.  I'd better stop there.
 
Maybe a good cry would do me good. 
 
Peace out.

I'm sorry about those days and though it doesn't help, I really do know what you mean. I don't get periods anymore (yay no money on tampons) but i still get emotional and crazy (can you tell those are a man's words?).

Work sucks sometimes, doesn't it? I mean it is great to get out, but when you throw jerky co-workers on top of husbands and kids and housework and feeling out of control, you generally get a bit of a meltdown. Frankly I'm amazed by you and all the things you are able to accomplish. i don't work half your hours, only have half your number of kids and I still want to fall to pieces every second.

If you need someone to babysit, just so you can get out, I totally volunteer. I know your kids don't know me, but i'm not too scary and will only make them do a few gross chores. :)

If no getting away and you can't get the kids to stay away from you for five minutes, do what I'm doing right now....plant in front of TV and escape the way you know best (food, ice cream, books....) I know it sounds horrible because I hate Sponge Bob, but when he allows me a few short minutes, I praise whomever created him. I swear I'll read an extra book tonight and work on shapes just so Landon isn't scarred.

(((HUGS)))

Hormones are a bitch, aren't they? I hope you get a good sleep tonight and that tomorrow is a better day :).

Erin said...

I am headed in that direction myself. I don't know why I always cry when I get super mad/frustrated--could be the estrogen.
I am sorry it's all dumping on you right now and I really hope you feel better soon.

PS I am liking those long bath suggestions!

I was so happy you'd posted again...but I'm sad for you now. I TOTALLY relate to you, if that matters. :o( I have had a whole WEEK like that. Seriously.....I have been so "upset" this week, and for no real reason, I guess. Like your friend said...hormones are a b****. hee hee I hope tomorrow is better. I've been telling myself that ALL WEEK. I'm counting down 'til the weekend. It's GOT to be better. hee hee Sorry, I'm not much help probably. Hopefully you'll be able to get lots of sleep tonight..... That should help make you feel a LITTLE better, huh??!! GOOD LUCK.

You go cry! And have some ice cream. I am sorry :(

I'm sorry things aren't going your way. At least you got to get a little bit of it out. Now you need to go grab a girlfriend and go get dessert and really get things off your chest. That always helps me. I hope tomorrow is better!

Koreena said...

I really hate those days. :( I usually have to cry my eyes out just to get all the crappy stuff off my chest. I really hope tomorrow is better for you.

Holly said...

I'm so sorry! I totally know how that feels. You will feel much better after a cry, and I know this is a little late, but time to veg and a king size candy bar
:Hugs:

That super sucks! I hate days like that. Smiles!

Chelsea said...

I'm so sorry you had a horrible day. :( Just the period alone is reason for me to have a cry-fest, not to mention all the other crap you're dealing with. I hope you're feeling better today!

Lynita said...

I feel your pain! I hope you can take a breather and regroup. I usually try to find some chocolate and a good movie or friend to spend some time with. Unfortunately I have very few cool friends out here, so usually it's a movie! I hope that you have a better day today and that you feel better soon. Womanhood sucks!

We all have those days. Sometimes it's good just to have that big cry and get it over with. I always feel better afterward. But don't feel bad for feeling what you feel, hormone induced or not. it's what makes you HUMAN!
