- Abdominal bloating (actually this should say: an extra 3 inches around the waist!)
Breast tenderness or swelling
Stress or anxiety (Ya think?!)
Trouble falling asleep
Joint or muscle pain
Mood swings (in other words, back off!)
Worsening of existing skin disorders, and respiratory (eg, allergies, infection) or eye (bulbar disturbances, conjunctivitis) problems
Don't you love how they stick 'mood swings' near the bottom? LOL That should SOOOO be at the top. No. 1 in fact. So, while I know I shouldn't be blogging while I'm PMSing, the truth is, I couldn't resist. LOL
The first thing I do in the morning after I take the kids to school is watch Monk. We DVR it so I can watch like yesterday's episode while I drink my morning coffee. That show makes me laugh and cry on a good day, but while I'm PMSing? Pfft! I've got tears streaming down my cheeks and the next moment I'm laughing so hard I can't breathe. There should be a warning that comes across the screen, 'do not watch if you're experiencing PMS symptoms'. LOL
Also, don't watch those damn commercials that show gorgeous, perfect women eating that friggin' Special K cereal. I'd like to slap them right upside the head. Who looks like that anyway? What does their diet consist of? A piece of lettuce for lunch and a sensible glass of water for dinner? After I stopped rolling my eyes and cussing at the T.V. I started doing the dishes, but something caught my eye and I looked down to see...dirt. Clods of dirt are all over the kitchen floor. The thing is, my daughters just swept and mopped the kitchen last night. There hasn't been time to dirty the kitchen. I start to get a little frustrated, but then I glanced down at my shoes and realize I'M the one who tracked in the dirt!! Damn, had that been my kids I would have done the whole, "I work hard to keep this house clean, blah, blah, blah". So, do you think I should give myself that lecture before I sweep up the dirt clods? LOL
So, after I swept up the kitchen I sat down and checked my email and saw that my Amazon order has shipped. I'm getting Lora Leigh's "Nauti Intentions", two Cindy Gerard books (her Black Ops series), and the first book in Nalini Singh's Psy-changeling series. Someone here recommended her to me, so I figured I'd give her a try.
Ahhh, will you look at that? The perfect cure for PMS. A shipment of books. Can I hear an amen?!
