Day 25 - And it all leads back to......

I have to admit, this weekend has been really....... trying.   And I believe it all comes back to one thing.

The Curse

Okay men....  time to look away.  I'm about to talk about female things.  Like Aunt Flo, bloating, and cravings.  So if you don't want to hear all of it, turn away now.  Run!!  Run away while you still can!!


So ladies, what is it about that time of month??  I always know I'm about to head down the Kotex path.  I start crying at movies, or commercials, or hell, the bug that got squashed on my windshield.  "Really now, how bad can it be??" you ask.  Well, I will tell you.  Yesterday, I started crying at the movie, "The Rookie."  The Rookie?!  Really?!  Yeah, the one with Dennis Quaid about baseball?  What the hell?!?  A couple of days ago, I was watching a movie channel when I saw that "My Life" with Michael Keaton was coming on.  I had to turn the channel before just the name of the movie made me break down in tears.  As if, in this state, I could watch a movie about a guy who has brain cancer.  Oh HELL NO!

Then what happens is that I want to chow down on everything in sight.  And when I say everything, I mean everything.  That kind of sucks when you are trying to lose weight.  I haven't gone overboard, but let's just say that I'm not expecting a huge weight loss this week.  *le sigh*  (Btw, I did eat some bread yesterday.  I had to throw it away before it became the unfortunate victim of pre-menstrual bread-icide dismemberment and slaughter.  After which I just might have been put in a cell, talking to Clarice about fava beans and chianti.)

And let's not talk about the bloating.  That's just kicking someone when they are down.  I bet Mother Nature also practices her drop-kick with little defenseless puppies too!

Thank goodness this is only for a few days a month.  Again I say, how the heck did men get out of this?!  They get all of the easy stuff.  (And for those guys who just might have read this, you can not compare getting kicked in the privates as compensation. Unless you want me to come to your house every month and rack you one. Just sayin'. ;)

/end rant

Have a good week everyone!!

Youre right periods are the worst. Its not fair at all!! I never remember when mine's gonna come, and since I often get cramps weeks in advance and after, it seems to just drag on forever. Its just gross and disgusting and uncomfortable and inconvenient and painful and bleh. It messes up my exercising schedule because lots of months I have to take 1-2 days off. I am bloated and ick looking and feeling. I break out. Sometimes my breasts hurt. I don’t usually get hungry though. I often am so bloated there's not much room for food, or im in so much pain I don’t want to eat. & I hate how im always having to remember to carry tampons around with me and visit the bathroom often. Ugh. Guys are SO LUCKY.

HTMLN: <--- What can I say about that? I work at NASA, we love acronyms. But to the point... I just made a note for myself: "Do not go see 'How to Train Your Dragon' any time in the near future." Thanks for the heads up! :) And when did we go nuts? I have no idea. But I"m sure it has somethign to do with men. (When in doubt, blame me. ha ha ha JUST KIDDING)

Lynda - isn't it though? Although, I have to say, I think men PMS too. We need to do a study.....

Crazy? I was crazy once. They locked me up in a white jacket. There were rats...I hate rats. They drive me crazy.

Crazy? I was crazy once...

Anywho. I TOtally agree.

ARJules said...

Merri - At least you can use tampons! I can't because I had Toxic Shock Syndrome. Yeah, I know... how bad does that suck?? I swear... just one more thing women have to deal with. heh

Journey - I know right?? I feel like I'm going to get that white jacket any day now.

I'm always starving the week before and of (I guess that is every other 2 weeks) and weigh at least 5 pounds more. HATE IT!

I remember my mother talking to me about my first period and trying to celebrate it with me. I never understood that one...
