153.8 - Blah Blah Blah

Today was a rest day so no running, and it was day 2 of my "I can't stand anyone or anything" mood. Does anyone else get massive hormone swings about a week and half after TTOM? It happens to me every month, and I know it's hormonal but it just sucks.

The kids get on my nerves and I don't respond to them very well when they are being their normal kid selves. And poor DH knows to just stay out of my way. He got home tonight just before 7 and asked if it would be okay if he took the kids to Target. I said YES PLEASE!

So I had some dinner (Amy's Kitchen pizza pocket and a big bowl of strawberries, yum) and then got online and bought a couple new sports bras (I needed some racer back support bras for my racer back running shirts that I wear in the summer and got two of these from T9) and a pair of running shorts. Now I'm watching John & Kate Plus 8 and wishing I had about 3 more hours to myself (and very glad I don't have 8 kids).

Tomorrow will be a better day, let's hope.

I go ape shint if I can't get any me time and I haven't been by myself since mid March!

I'm grumpy/cranky a couple of days before and during TTOM. I feel sorry for my kids.

Glad you got to get some time by yourself and do a little on-line shopping.

Hope you are feeling better tomorrow.

P.S. - There are days when I will go batty if I hear the word "mom" one more time. I feel guilty for feeling that way . . . but some days arrgh!

Glad you got some alone time in. I don't have kids, so I can't really relate, but I can imagine. I like a lot of time to myself.

Ah, time alone in your own home. Sounds like heaven to me! Don't feel any guilt, everyone needs a little recharge time. It makes us better partners and parents. Enjoy it when you can get it.

I get cranky when I don't get some *alone with me* time and no, the hours I spend by myself in my office at work don't count!!

Get ready for some big storms headed your way sistah!! We got hit yesterday and my street was flooded which is why I am 3 hours late to work this morning!! I heard on the news they are headed for Indiana, so I hope you don't get flood waters like we did.

Take care of *cranky you* today!!

Ohhhhh girl I hear you! It's usually the week before for me. I always want to ring the kids necks over the smallest little thing and I HAVE TO HAVE some alone time with NO NOISE LOL Like GC, I feel bad for my kids when it comes time :-/

If this give you any idea of how I am ....I looked at my hubby and simply said "I need chips". He was home in 10 minutes with 2 of my favorite kinds. Now this is the same man, who has selective hearing when it comes to my voice. He thinks I am scary. : )
I love that show John and Kate....and I am glad I only have 3!!!
