PMS, I Hate You

This morning, my husband told me I looked like a Midol commercial. Yeah. *sigh*

It all started last night. Joe was tired, and after basically throwing me into the bathroom, I got ready for bed. Then, I come out 10ish minutes later...he's asleep. We're not talking the I've-been-dozing-for-a-bit kind of sleeping, but the peace-I'm-out kind of asleep. When we go to bed together, we always cuddle/spoon for a while before we fall asleep. It's our routine, and I love it. Anyway, mister sleepyhead was not waking up to cuddle. =( So, I thought I'd take advantage of the time and read for a bit. I read for maybe thirty minutes before turning out the light and trying to wake him up to roll over...again. This time? I rubbed his back, said his name several times and finally got a "wha..?" I asked him to roll over and he rolled over onto his back and I couldn't get him to say anything to me. He was still completely out. Grrrrr.

Then, I got mad. I mean like ready to scream and throw things mad. 5 seconds later, I'm crying - bawling my freakin' eyes out. Why? Because he fell asleep. I should have gotten to bed sooner. We only have so many nights together left. So, I just cried. I figured since I couldn't wake him up that me crying wasn't going to phase him in the slightest. At one point I thought,  I could be dying and he'd have no idea. Which is probably true. Since he's been in the Army, he's developed some serious sleeping habits, one of which is being able to sleep through just about anything. I cried, and cried, and cried. When I finally laid on my back to try to calm down, he woke up. He put his hand on my leg and asked what was wrong. I tried to explain it to him, but I'm sure he didn't get it. I felt stupid. I got want I wanted, but I still felt completely ridiculous.

And this morning when I attempted to apologize for last night's psychoness? What are you talking about?? Great. So I had to explain my crazy girl emotions again. Awesome. I think he wanted to laugh, but was a little afraid. Ha! So after the emotions, the oh-my-gosh-I'm-gonna-die cramps made their appearance. More awesome. Hence hubby's comment that I looked like a Midol commercial laying on the bed in the fetal position with my pjs on. *sigh*

Why is it that "that time of the month" is always accompanied with her friends - wacko emotions, cramps, bloating, fatigue, and weirdo cravings? Isn't it enough just to have to deal with "Aunt Flo"? I mean, come on!!!!! Reason #1 I'm ticked at Eve for taking that first bite. She cursed us all!!!!! Lol!

On a side note, I've decided that I've seriously fallen off the workout bandwagon. I've got to get back on track before I become some squishy beach bum! Hopefully, I'll be able to get to the gym near our new house and get back to doing Pilates. I really do miss doing Pilates. Running? Not so much. I know that I need to though. My legs and knees have been killing me, which I'm sure is caused by the lack of workouts.

Also, I'm still looking for ideas to add to my "Things to Accomplish While Joe's Gone" list. Any suggestions would be great!!!

Happy Tuesday!
3 more days 'til we move in!! Woohoo!!

I made a "things to keep me busy list while SoldierMan was gone" and I don't think I hit any of them! :) I'm a slacker!

I'm SOOOO with you on the PMS. Mine started in full-force yesterday, mainly the emotions. Also why I'm not excited that THIS week is the week we're moving. Boo.

My best solution is Aleve (or naproxen sodium, the blue pills). Midol and stuff weren't strong enough for me. But that seems to do the trick. Take it easy - and go easy on yourself! :)

Things to accomplish list.....

1. Read a book a month (at least)

2. Have Joe make a list of movies that you "HAVE" to see and start watching them (my husband's movies for me are Goonies and Animal House)

3. Find a recipe that you think he will love and make it several times until you have perfected!

4. Keep blogging. I love to read what you write.

Aw! I feel ya honey. Aunt Flo and her friends are the WORST! :(

I always end up a tad bit over the edge of pyscho during my time :)

Ugh, I totally understand where you're coming from. Aunt Flo and her buddies are HORRIBLE. Although, I've heard that working out on your period can help cramps and the other symptoms but most of the time we don't feel like working out when we feel that crappy. I hope you feel better!

Yay for three more days until move-in! =)

I feel so bad for you. I am going through the same thing except I dont have a period because I am on the shot but I cry about EVERYTHING! Im not exaggerating either... little stupid things like some kid getting a good hit at my brothers game today! (I know... embarrassing right?) But I plan to switch my birth control in a couple weeks. I cant stand this crap and I have horrible headaches! Good luck girl!

I am feelin' ya! Aunt Flo came last week- our last week together before the big D. Talk about mood swings! It's funny how that in the heat of the moment everything is so awful- and then when you look back you wonder why you got so upset? I hate that- it makes me second guess myself when I get mad now. Is it me or is PMS?...

I'm totally PMSing with you right now lol and I'm in the same place. I always feel really stupid after I throw huge fits about nothing (like The Hulk kind of mad as my fiance puts it). In fact I got really mad at him earlier and raved and screamed and slammed my engagement ring on the counter and he just laughed and put it back on my finger after I calmed down. At least your husband knows not to take it too seriously. They learn ;p

Found you from Lady Bloggers btw

It's one of our rights as a girl to be a little psycho at that time. Problem is the men think they have the right too, but no biological evidence there!

Hahaha, I'm glad I'm not the only one who gets psycho/in serious pain during certain times of the month. I missed half a movie last night b/c I was curled up on my floor in the fetal position. We could have starred in that commercial together! I hope you start to feel better soon. I think the brownie I ate helped. :)

I just wanted to let you know that I included you in a list of military blogs, on my blog fan page on facebook: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Singing-Through-the-Rain/122330787792057
If you would not like to be on this list, feel free to let me know, and I will remove the link! Thanks! :)

Oh my goodness, dear.
Monday was horrible for me, too. But I don't have a hubby. Darnit.
Anyways, this month I didn't bite someone's head off, so that's good, but golly did I have around a full hour of feeling utterly frustrated with my painting, the colors, the everything, and cried my eyes out.
Sometimes it would be just soooo much easier to just HAVE the thing. Not all the moodiness!
Have a lovely Wednesday:)
