Snarky, detox, hormonal stream of consciousness.

This is not a sunny Sandy post.  Feel free to not read...its kind of more for me than it is for you.  But, if you'd like to laugh along...feel free. 

***Disclaimer:  I am not myself today.  :)****


Aunt Flo is coming.  The is the first month I've ovulated since C. was 6 months old.  NOT trying to get pregnant- just nice to know that my hormones are starting to head back to "normalcy."  However, this PMS thing is kicking me in the bootie.

Today is my day to drive the car pool kids.  I never shower on these days.  Which I don't get because this is also the day that I run errands....you know, since "I'm out and about anyway."  So, I'm the dirty, unkept lady with the dirty-faced toddler still in his pajamas without makeup (me, not the toddler) in front of you at the grocery store.

Speaking of grocery store...today I ran into my second person paying for a basket FULL of groceries with a bridge card (welfare in MI) who was texting on her Blackberry and treating the cashier like crap.  Total crap!  I bit my tongue...because I really wanted to say, "Hang on, lady!  You need to be nice to him because his WORKING butt is paying for your SCHLEPPING one to eat!"  Even if she was paying in cash...or American Excess Gold Card...that cashier did not deserve to be treated the way she treated him.  Grrrr.

I am currently on day 6 of sugar withdrawl.  This, in and of itself, is my biggest problem.  I hate being addicted to sugar...but I hate being without it.  I was told 14 days is what you need to stop "needing" it.  Yeah...8 days left.  Oh my.  Wish me luck.  Better yet, wish my family luck.

I now know 22 people that are pregnant and/or adopting this year.  This, by far, does not make me want to have another one.  I think I need a better water filter.

I've been scouring craigslist for furniture for our addition.  The bathroom downstairs is near completion, and he SHOULD be working on the rest of the trim work soon.  Spring is starting to look very busy with large jobs (Praise the Lord!), so I'm praying hard that he gets a lot done on the addition between now and then.  Even if it means paychecks of the shrinky-dink kind.  I found a bolt of fabric that I love for within my budget and ordered it today.  I cannot wait to see it.  I'm planning on reupholstering an accent chair for our family room.  The chair that I lined up to purchase (w/ ottoman) may have been sold from under me.  Need to get my deposit back from that chump.

Why the heck don't people delete their post when they've sold something on craigslist?!?!?! 
Seriously...one of my biggest pet peeves...

That and older women that wear their hair in pig-tails and think its cute. 
Yeah, its not.

I think C. is addicted to Altoids.

I need to pick up A.'s 6 year old pictures from the protrait studio before I pick up the kids at school.  Of course, the studio is all on lunch from 2-3....who goes on lunch from 2-3?!?!?!?  Are we in Europe?  I'll be cutting it close...but must go.

Thanks for listening.

What happens when you take sugar out of your diet? I have no clue! Like...is it similar to caffeine withdrawals or worse or nothing like it?

Sandy Hop said...

Brittney, It depends on your body chemistry. I am plain out addicted to it. I crave sugar, and when I have it- it calms me. It's alot like caffine or alcohol addiction- at least for me. So, it's out of here! Sunny Sandy will hopefully be back soon. :)

Hang in there! I hope the cravings get better soon!

this post was fun for me. I enjoyed the random Altoid comment. sorry you're enjoying the woes of womanhood. Hope you start feeling better soon.

I'm addicted to sugar, too!! I need to work on that.
I am not looking forward to hormones coming back, I have not had that problem since before I was pregnant with my 13 month old.....it'll probably happen earlier this year, bu that's life. :-)

Hormones can make you crazy... I'm pretty sure it's their job!

And I HATE bad Craigslist etiquette!

Personally, I like the water filter comment the best!!

p.s. Did you include Andi in that count? She has not "officially" announced it on FB, but she does have a pregnancy ticker on her page. She is due the end of May, I think.

Joy- no I didn't have a clue Andi was pregnant! I'll have to congratulate her on the d.l. Thanks for letting me know! Official count = 23. Need to save for the super mega anti-pregnancy filter. :)
