Life of Liz

Just one of those days!

In PMS aka Menopause aka Bad Days on November 9, 2012 at 1:03 pm

I will admit it; yesterday was not my best day.  It was just one of those days frankly.

I woke up and ….

  • Didn’t pack any lunches.  Why?  I don’t really know, but since the kids had extra time this morning (late start Wednesday) I decided to let them figure it out.  Hmm, wonder what the 1st grader created?
  • Got in the shower; didn’t shave.  Again, no idea why.  Passive/aggressive towards Henry maybe … (who has been glued to his laptop until way past midnight working since Saturday night).
  • Kinda got ready for my Wacky Wednesday Mom’s Morning Out – not really committed to going until the moment I walked into the ihop though! 
  • Said several things to Henry that I knew would not end well … including “whatever” in response to “ aren’t you going to be late if you don’t get out the door?”  Followed up by “I don’t careI really don’t care” when he followed up with “is that really what you want to be saying?”  The refrain was just a tad loud for his liking … and then my favorite … “I don’t have time for this … as I hurried out the door”.  Ya, that about sums up my interchange with my dear, sweet Henry this morning!
  • When I finally arrived at ihop – Just for the heck of it I ordered the deep fried stuffed French Toast (3/5 stars) and country fried potatoes with cheese and sour cream (5/5 stars)!  In for a penny in for a pound (or 5 lbs!).
  • Went to the mall – you know, just to look and instead bought some makeup because Lancôme had a free give away with purchase (umm … I wonder if my CPA husband will think it was free when he sees the AmX charge … hmm gotta think about that one).
  • Didn’t make dinner … I decided on my own the kids were likely in the mood for Dominoes … Not!
  • A little short with Henry when he called to say he would be unable to help drive to/from Life Groups tonight (yes, because of work … I know … AGAIN).  Found myself pondering “do the girls really need to be spiritual this week?”
  • Finally sat down to watch Mob Doctor … Ok, I guess I could have started with that info and you would have been able to sum up my day without any of the above explanations, huh?
  • Ate a pint of Ben and Jerry’s Salted Caramel – and added salt!
  • Fell asleep at 10 pm – with my make up on!  Hate that.

Yep, not a great day.  But guess what I got today … yes, actually I did receive an intense ‘reminder’ this morning about what is and is NOT acceptable to say to your HoH … which brings this weeks tally to those keeping track to 4!   … By George I think he’s got it#time to get my act together#orgetusedtoasorea**!

I also received a visit from my friend – the one that hasn’t shown her face for 4 months … yep ‘that friend’ … oh the joys of being 46!  Well, on the bright side, maybe yesterday’s PMS had been building for the past 4 months!

~ yippee!  The weekend is almost here; H will be done with his work project and we can concentrate on getting things ready for Grandma’s move in … 12/14!  The arrival of my friend also means we can forego the evil barrier and have unprotected, unrepentant put the lime in the coconut and shake it all up SEX~ yippee!


  1. Hello – i’ve just found you, and I’m glad I did. i’m linking you to my next Follow Friday… and hope you don’t mind random strangers coming around and wanting to be friends with you 🙂

    that was a cute post, and i SO love that song (lime in the coconut)!

    • Hi Fondles thanks for reading my blog and the link.

      And actually, the whole reason I started the blog was to make friends with random strangers so I wouldn’t feel like what Henry and I do is so different, lol! I also enjoy reading your posts. ~Liz

  2. You know – some days just seem to be like that…where EVERYTHING that can go wrong or every bad choice we can make – we do! Glad he didn’t stand for it – YEA HENRY!!! Enjoy the lime in the coconut!!!!

    BTW – menopause SUCKS – and does WICKED things to the psyche!

    • OMG! I am not the only one that is randomly losing my mind?!? Sometimes I can’t sleep – I am hot – I am cold and I can never remember anything, lol!! I feel like starting a new blog to connect with other crazy menopause women in blogland!!

  3. Oh how I could relate to everything you wrote. Does it help to know that it’s not just you? It’s also good that you are looking at some of the good things in it all. Hope your weekend is good.

    • Hi Jacquie – we’ve had better weekends and if you read my post today you’ll see we are a few weeks away from a ‘good weekend’ — but if everything was easy and smooth I guess that would be boring, lol? If I ever get to easy and smooth I will be sure to let everyone know how it is!! ~Liz

  4. Oh, boy I can so relate to alllll of this. I despise days like that….when you can’t seem to get it together…and you just don’t care.

    Here is hoping things are looking up for you 😀

    • Hi Lucy – yes, it’s the ‘don’t care’ that catches me off guard every time! I can realistically see this as a ‘season’ and I know that means at some point it will be in a different season – but right here and now … I’d like to skip right over this particular season!!

  5. (((hugs))) Liz, You know, sometimes when I read blogs there is a narrator in my head, and just the style – it was Eeyore! He came on over from my blog, lol. I feel like that a sometimes. I hope it gets much, much better!

  6. Funny post. Everybody has those days once in a while. Sorry for the 4th correction but sometimes they are just so worth it.

    Friends come and go and maybe this next time it will stay away for good.

    • Thanks Sunny Girl — as it turned out my friend was here and gone really fast. I do think things are winding down – but my body still gets ready each month, yeah know? Just another season. ~Liz
