Just one of those days…

Just one of those days…

You know the ones? Where you are kind of just in a funk. And have PMS. And just don’t feel right in your own skin.

That is how I feel today.

Looking at me wrong will make me cry. Hugging me to make it better will make me cry.

I know I will feel better tomorrow, at least I hope I do.

I think I am just having one of those days where the uncertainty you feel about things takes over and doesn’t let the good stuff shine on through.

I don’t have a lot of days like that, I really don’t, thank god…and the fact that  I don’t really have a focus right now isn’t helping. Or much money.

Usually when I feel like this I will just get in my truck and go, most times to Chilliwack to see my girls and ground myself with some good solid girl time.

Not really an option for me this week unfortunately.

So I am spewing it forth to all of you.

Thank god for good friends…Megan…girl you save my life once a week, I am not even kidding. I am so lucky to have you as my new found sister in life. I love you to pieces.

And of course my rock Phyllis…there are just no words to express how I feel about you, it’s so much more than just love :)

So that’s the mushy part of my day. I feel a bit better after my nap, typing that didn’t make me cry.

Hopefully this PMS shit goes away when menopause kicks in. I am ready for that…unless it just turns into solid PMS, then I promise all the boys in my life, I will take my own life so you don’t have to. Really, I love you all that much.

So tomorrow I will go get a haircut that always makes me feel better, and have coffee with Phyllis and regroup. Thank goodness there are sleeping pills and new days. Exactly in that order.

So for now I wish you all goodnight and new mornings :)

    It won’t surprise you much to hear that I never get PMS (or PMT in other countries, where “T” = “Tension”, which I think is more appropriate).

    For some years ago, I worked in an underground facility and walked the 6 flights of stairs down to my office each morning. Some morning I practically flew down the stairs, others I had to be careful lest I trip and fall because I was so lethargic.

    I was never able to truly figure out what the caused the energy highs and lows, but I definitely experienced the ups and downs over time and know how some days just getting up seems quite unnecessary…

    Girl! I keep praying for an early menopause myself! Mine PMS and everything associates has gotten worse the past 3 years and I’m FED UP! So I totally sympathize with you D. Hang tough! (Geeze….what I would give to just walk around with a boner! :)

    Well, you know what it is, don’t you?

    You haven’t had a dose of my blog lately. You haven’t visited and I’m sure my posts will cheer you up…just look at the last few. Samantha still says such wonderful things to me. ( see Brutal Honesty is the Pits) I do embarrassing things (see I’m awesome like that)…it might make you feel better about your world. :)

    Laugh at others (I mean WITH…laugh with me) and it will make you feel better!

    Since I have days that I feel quite similar to what you are describing, I thought I would find a quote in my pages of saved quotes for you. When I am feeling like this sometimes the right quote or affirmation changes my thought therefore changes how I feel…the result is always a better day. Here is the quote I found for you…hope it helps.

    It takes more courage to reveal insecurities than to hide them, more strength to relate to people than to dominate them, more ‘manhood’ to abide by thought-out principles rather than blind reflex. Toughness is in the soul and spirit, not in muscles and an immature mind. ~Alex Karras

    Oh, darlin’ you are most welcome! You do the very same for me… I am so lucky to have you there for me too! Keep your head up and know how much I truly adore you sister friend. Love you to the moon and back. xoxo.

    It’s not PMS or menopause, plain and simple it’s Mentalpause. No rhyme, no reason, just plain crazy shizzle, bump in the provibial road, pain in the ass, CRAP.
    If someone looked at me sideways today I would have cried, why, unstable (well maybe a little, hell I try to keep that secret). Weaning off my medsk
    , possible,my sugar shots seems to be helping. Who the hell knows. Whatever it is or isn’t, Please, pretty please take a vacation, I am and I’d like you to take one on a different beach.
    Don’t feel alone Donna, it’s a girl thing!
