Warning: This blog is written by my alter ego, who shows up
once a month for an unwanted visit…sometimes staying a little longer than we want her too.
She is rude, annoying, and causes upheaval in my household every time she visits.
I promise to not let her get a hold of my blog again in the future.
I never knew Pinterest could be so therapeutic.
I just sat in silence for ten minutes pinning the heck out of stuff on Pinterest in search for a recipe to fulfill a craving that my alter ego is in search of, instead I wound up looking into a cure for why I am so cranky today.
I honestly do know why I am cranky right now…
AND why my two teenage daughters are as well…
(insert sarcasm and catchy teen movie music)
For years it was about three weeks of hell-taking turns p.m.s.’ing in this house. One of us down for the count, then another…and another.
Tip-toeing around each other, trying to be supportive yet cursing each other out under our breath.
And then we started that beautiful, yet wicked balance of hormonal harmony… How exciting for my husband and friends and family…be done with it all around the same time, and then our true sweet selves come home as the alter egos pack their bags and leave.
When I am not p.m.s.’ing, I truly do sympathize with my husband and the other males in our lives for all that we put them through on our hormonal roller coaster rides.
Not today…but maybe in a week or two I will care again. Because right now, I swear at some points in the day, I truly think there is Male P.M.S.
In actuality, this is obviously just them reacting to our charming alter ego.
So back to the grand world of pinning stuff…there are dozens, if not hundreds of remedies, articles, quotes, and images all relating to the terrible, not so nice world of P.M.S.
The quotes mock us…but made me laugh…for the first time all day.
The images tell us what we should eat…avoiding all cravings…
Not gonna happen.
I will just head back over to the page of all things gooey and chocolate.
The articles… after reading one or two remedies/cures/explanations, my oh-so-charming self started saying “blah, blah, blah…I get it” (not very nice of me, but it is sadly how it goes).
I despise this time of the month.
But fear what the next chapter of middle-aged hormonal imbalance will bring…so I guess I will tolerate this chapter a little longer, and try to be on my best behavior.
I will take my vitamins. I will avoid all things sweet. I will not drink alcohol. I will smile and persevere…
At least I am being honest.
I will admit the card quotes on Pinterest are truly making me smile…
Bonus for day one of Alter Ego vs. The Real Me.
I will try my best to be good…in a bad sort of way.
