Who would have thought?

Who would have thought that I would be relieved for it to be that time of the month?

I'm thinking how tired I have been lately and it must just be from all the stress of moving. My jaw has been hurting from gritting my teeth and I have found myself making a run to get some chocolate and some sweets and my little kids have been fighting like mad and I have little patience for that and my older ones have been arguing more than usual and my husband has been bugging more than usual lately! So~What's up with all that?

So Hannah went to her new school today and I had a bit of a panic attack after I dropped her off. Felt like maybe we did the wrong thing. Worried she wouldn't make any new friends, feel so bad that she has to start over. Will she be OK? Will she make new friends? I feel so guilty!

So I go home and plop my butt down on the sofa to console myself with a Hershey's kiss and a diet coke for breakfast. And worry some more.What's up with all this?
Now I am on edge and can't breathe and thinking what the heck is up with me today?
Oh~I started my period and I am so relieved thinking I guess now I don't need to hurt anyone and I can stop double fisting the chocolate. and Hannah didn't make a bunch of new friends at school but she did go to the park after school to play with some kids from the neighborhood. I think she will be Ok.
And me too. In about a week!
Ahh we get to give birth and go through this emotional roller coaster every month. Aren't we ladies lucky?
My friend Lori sent me a email about stress and I had a good laugh at some of these ways of dealing with the burdens of life ~
*Accept that some days you're the pigeon, And some days you're the statue.*
*Always keep your words soft and sweet, Just in case you have to eat them.*
*Always read stuff that will make you look good If you die in the middle of it.*
*Drive carefully. It's not only cars that can be Recalled by their maker.*
*If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.*
*It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply be kind to others.*
*Never put both feet in your mouth at the same time. Because then you won't have a leg to stand on.*
*Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance.*
*When everything's coming your way, You're in the wrong lane.*
*Birthdays are good for you. The more you have, the longer you live.*
*You may be only one person in the world, But you may also be the world to one person.*
*Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once.*
*We could learn a lot from crayons... Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull. Some have weird names, and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box.*
*A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.*
Thanks Lori..perfect for my mood today!

AHH the joys of being a woman. The chocolate helps and it is said "to do something for our mood". I am all for anything that can alter my mood lately. I hear ya.
Hannah will be fine. She needed a "new" start and it will take time for her to adjust. You too Mom, take a deep breath. Moving is one of the biggest stresses in life, even if is a few miles away. It is all OK. Life is good!

I think I will have to steal this for my Relief Society blog.

I do that, too! I wonder, "what the heck is wrong with me?" and then, bam -- I'm two days early. Aha! I'm not really crazy.

I love the poem! I'm going to steal it for the "Inspirations" part of my website. Thanks!


Don't you love hormones. I hate it when I cry. It makes me feel weak. So nice to feel out of control!

Hannah will do well. It is hard for our little ones who don't make friends quickly but hopefully they are just taking their time making better friends. I know that I worry about it with JR as well.
