Pre Menstral Syndrom

it starts with a cup of coffee that you have to heat up at least three separate times because God forbid you are able to actually drink it in one sitting…. uninterrupted…. even if it is a day old!
looking around the house and contemplating calling the Department of Health because wouldn’t it just be easier to have them condemn the dump then clean it.
i mean who the hell knows the last time you bothered to clean the kitchen floor…..in fact i think the vacuum is still sitting in the living room since last week when it was going to be used …wishful thinking.
sitting down at the computer pleading silently with the 3 year old…just give mommy 30 minutes uninterrupted…and being interrupted 5 minutes in because deep down you know there is some evil sadistic conspiracy the children have plotted, called “let’s see who can make mommy crazy first.”
after about 10 minutes of deep breathing and a repeated mantra of “i wanted them, i wanted them, i wanted them” you actually get that 60 minutes to work on photo shop and that website you have been wanting to set up for your Self for months, only to have it all been in vain because the banner didn’t fit the damn web page anyhow.
at this point, with visions of exploding computers flying through your mind , it’s time to go to work.
after…. of course…. you pull the $20.00 parking ticket off the windshield.
Because…WHY not????
you manage to get through the afternoon with out killing anyone….
during the 45 minute drive home in rush hour traffic you manage to play through the monthly familiar list of everything you HATE about your life and everyone else’s LIFE for that matter, because you ALWAYS know what is best for everyone else even if they don’t!!!!
deciding after arriving home the absolute BEST thing, would be to write and OF COURSE you can’t access your blog site because you have forgotten your password. (i think somebody should do a study on short term memory loss and PMS).
and THEN because you have allotted the maximum tries at logging in ….. ACCESS has been DENIED indefinitely!
PERFECT!!!
deciding once and for all…if nothing else i know i can do ONE thing right today and feel GREAT doing it, almost daring that SYNDROME to stop you now. you put on your tights, lace up your shoes, join your girls and put 3 miles down like one “badass mother runner!!!”
at the end of the run…you finally remember what day it is, realize why you wanted to cry at least 15 separate times today, decide it is probably a good idea to warn the rest of the family so they can all keep their distance
and thank God for about the millionth time that you are a RUNNER!!!
because when all else goes to pot and your getting ready to bleed out at least your sneakers go on the right feet and the steady rhythm of your cadence is more soothing then a good cry any day!
