The Perfect Storm

I don't know... Suddenly, everything seems so ridiculous. Blogging is bordering on overly self-indulgent and over-thought. Maybe we all need to be out there actually living life, rather than picking it apart, piece by piece. And yes, of course, I am in a bad mood. PMS, to be exact. I know it will pass, and I'll be putting my "oh-isn't-life-so-kooky" spin on it, right here on this very blog, soon enough. But right now, I want to wallow in it. I want to scream at everyone (even, apparently, the lawn guy), feel bad about myself, and roll my eyes at all things meaningful, joyful and sweet. yuck.

I know there are things that can combat this. Exercise, a balanced diet, water. However, the only things that pique my interest right now are cookies, ice cream and my pajamas. I am not about to get my ass off the couch. I am desperate to get the family out of the house and out of my hair. And if you haven't already guessed, Moody Teen is back from the mountain, and, as God as my witness, I take back every nice thing I've ever said about the kid. Okay, maybe I'll only take back a handful of nice things... But a very large handful. He's managed to smirk, shrug and make his brother cry enough to make me seriously consider boarding school. For me! Isn't there some sort of adult boarding school where I can go and learn about botany and clay throwing? Or is that just called prison? Either way, sign me up! I promise to make my bed every day!

Ugh.

Ice cream doesn't even need a special occasion.

Em said...

A friend of mine described prison today as "three hots and a cot" - sounding pretty damn good right about now.

Do you want to be my bitch? Or visa versa?

mama-face said...

We are twins separated at birth, I swear. You read my mind.

I have an award for you...does that make you happy or sad? You pick. Or don't pick. Up to you.

I would put a smiley face right here, but somehow it just doesn't seem like a good time.

stefanie said...

I've missed you. And I think the adult boarding school is called blogging and you are already there. Maybe I'll come back to school soon too. Or maybe not.

I want to know more about BlogHer. Sometime will you tell me more?

Sheeee's baaaacck! Yay!

I think that place you are talking about is the looney bin. Move over, I'm joining you.

Annie said...

I love ice cream and I don't need to be hitting a spell to overindulge.

Nanny Goats In Panties said...

Does this mean you shot the puppies and barfed on the rainbows? I'll go get a towel. Or a sponge. Or something.

Summer said...

I feel that way a lot of the time, and I'm pretty sure PMS isn't 3 weeks out of the month, or I'd blame that! =)

I can relate. I can so relate.

Lee of MWOB said...

I'm loving everyone's comments. They are cracking me up and making me smile on all kinds of levels. I'm totally with you on the living life thing...but now that I've met some of the coolest chicks around through blogging, can't we all just live some more life together??? Instead of just through these damn comment sections???

And I totally want to get in on the bitch action with you and Em.

:-)

Wendyburd1 said...

Here!*passes you a massive bowl of ice cream* I hope you feel better soon!

J9 said...

Sass said...

That's it. We're separated at birth.

And I adore you. ;)

Great post! I can relate. When I'm in a bad mood, I also like to wallow in it. My family all scurries around, trying to fix it. LET IT BE! I say...you appreciate the good times in life more when you contrast them with the bad.

Kim said...

I was ready to go to the hospital on Sunday and have myself committed...I just needed to be alone and away from my children (ahem, the sassy 5 year old) and just couldn't handle it anymore.
So yeah, if you find that boarding school let me know I'll join you.

Oh and ice cream? A total must my love.

Jenners said...

If there is a boarding school for adults, sign me up!!! I'm ready, willing and able to go. (Well, not able but I'll work it out. I'm sure my husband would fight me tooth and nail over who gets to go.)

Quirkyloon said...

I live for Mommy Time Outs.

Really I do.

They are wonderful.

Here's wishing you a nice long one...soon! *smile*

Stephanie Faris said...

Sometimes you have to indulge your desire to just slack and eat ice cream! But you're right, exercise and eating healthy make us feel better in the long term. The other stuff just feels so good short-term!

Brenda Jean said...

Deb, Deb, Deb...moody teens, PMS and summer do not do well together. I have SO been there quite a few damn times since school let out. And talk about no alone time with my husband. That is almost impossible because they don't sleep. I tell them to sleep, but they don't. Emily sleeps, then wakes up, then sleeps. I swear I'm on edge too...

CaJoh said...

Doesn't it just suck to have PMS at the same time your children reach the age of puberty and teendom.

Sometimes we just want to send them to military school, but that sometimes doesn't help either (it all depends on the child).

Good luck braving that Perfect Storm.

Sassy Britches said...

Oooo, oooo, oooo! It's called Illinois! Come visit, and we'll throw whatever the flip you want to throw!

Bee and Rose said...

I'm running away...want me to pick you up on my way?
