Ramblins of Weekend Updates

According to my husband – I have developed an increase in hormonal reactions over the past few weeks. I cried when I burned cookies, dinners etc. Friday takes the cake apparently. I went to the grocery store after work and by the time I was done there were tornado warnings, torrential downpours, floods and just plain crappy weather going on the entire state. E called to make sure I was going straight home and getting help with the water and kitty litter at the store to my car. He would get it when he got home. The bagger gave me an umbrella and told me to go get my car and bring it up underneath their overhang and he would load all my groceries – So thoughtful – very sweet. I got half way out to the car and the lightening was popping an the umbrella flipped inside out.. So I was soaked…When I got home, I grabbed the cold/freezer stuff and went inside to start dinner. I bought one of those meals in a bag. Well apparently, I am crazy full of hormones because I opened the bag and just became enraged – I swore the bag o’ food was freezer burned. I was so mad. The rice in the bag looked like perfectly white chicklets – or like it had been Zoomed. I should back this up and explain that I tried to buy meat but all their meat looked terrible. (Now that I am typing this – I am wondering if it all was all part of this pregnancy delusional behavior that I am partaking in that my husband is laughing at) I swear the meat all looked like it was from bad cuts and fatty parts.. Just made me ill. So my dinner plans could not contain any of those meats - it limited my options ... E got off work and I requested that he bring home dinner because the meal I had planned on making was freezer burned. So when he came home in the rain with our dinner – he looked at the bag o meal and said that it was perfectly fine. … So he ate his dinner, and then cooked the bag meal. I tasted it, it was fine, he took it to lunch the next day. Apparently – I have lost it.

The crazy Nesting has begun - Then this weekend, I told E that I had to clean. I worked myself into a pure sweat. I scrubbed, vacuumed, dusted, laundry etc. I went to breakfast and asked my dad how much kitchen faucets cost to replace. Our sink in the kitchen is not deep at all and the spout comes out straight. If you are trying to wash pots/pans you get all wet and have to maneuver in weird positions. And quite frankly I am tired of it, so this weekend I bought a new faucet this weekend (technically my dad bought it for me but whatever) It’s bought, E and my Dad are going to replace it tonight. Along with the toilet guts. Our toilets have been acting funny and the landlord keeps telling me she is sending someone to “look at it”. I have heard that for 6 months now and am over it. (granted we don’t call to follow up – but should I have to ??) So I, (erm my dad) bought complete toilet gut kit and that will be fixed also. YEAH ..moving right along – we will not even discuss our spare bedroom/nursery situation. I have asked several members of my family to help me to come up with a better plan/arrangement for our living room/dining room area. No one will help me with suggestions. I think we need more floor space – but E and my mom are no help- they think is "fine".. Maybe I will ask my father about that tonight.

I found a consignment shop with plus size maturity clothes. I can not tell you how thrilled I was about that. I bought a pair of jeans for $10 and an outfit (top/pants) for $13 and I had a $5 off coupon I found on their website.


I check out how people found my blog pretty regularly. Saturday (or Sunday, I can't remember now) Someone frommy city googled "my full name". and found one of my very first u/s's. I will be editing that - weird

So as you can see – saving birds, crying over meat and cooking, cleaning, and typing this, apparently I am nesting and being quite loopy all at the same time. I already new I was not right – this confirms it. E told his buddies at work about my episodes - apparently they say it gets worse .... Let's hope not

You poor thing, hormones suck, don't they?!?!

Mr. W's work buddies have flat out tried to talk him out of getting me pregnant! Haha!

You poor dear! I hope someone can help you get some stuff moved around and fixed so you can have some peace. :-)

You are not alone. I fluctuate between pissed off and tears on a daily basis and agree that those bag meals can be very deceiving. Don't be hard on yourself, enjoy these last few months of crazy, coz pretty soon we won't have time to even notice that we're being nuts!

I hope the nesting bug hits me soon because my house could use a good cleaning.

Sorry about your dinner craziness. I think I would have broken down and ordered a pizza.

Katarina Jelly Beana said...

this confirms it. You are the cutest.

I've had my weird food things, too, but nothing quite like that.

Morrisa said...

He he he, too funny!

Barb said...

Poor Farah. :( I agree with Mel. Hormones suck.

How do you find out how people find your blog? I want to do that but don't know how.

Debby said...

I too can go crazy with hormones at moment. I had really my first tears for no reason on Saturday. It freaked out the husband cause I've been doing so well up to this point. But you know what, who cares if they have to put up with our hormones? We have to put up with everything else - the discomfort, lack of sleep, indigestion, lack of alcohol. So I say it's quite the even trade.

Searching said...

You crack me up. So sorry to laugh at your misery, but are you sure all that happened in ONE weekend?? I don't know how you have that energy!!

Great find on the clothes, btw!

Kate said...

Come to my house and clean! :)

Geohde said...

I'm a rabid cleaner at the best of times, goodness knows what will happen if I get any more anal about it!

my hub can not wait for nesting! i am an abysmal housewife (i do my own laundry & the dishes & try my best to not make a mess, but that's about it!)

Sorry about the crazy hormones- I hope it gets a little easier soon. Thanks for your kind words- it really does feel like getting your feet kicked out from under you just when you think you're back up.

T-girl said...

Oh yeah, hormones makes us crazy!!!... E will have a lot of thing to laugh from now on, but hey that is part of the fun!

I am sure you will get the help you need and the house will be lovely, and with a nursery included!

Marcy "meg" said...

I am very hormonal too! I know exactly what you mean. Hang in there.... and yes weird about the googling! I need to check mine out more... do you check yours through the sitemeter site?

A New Beginning said...

You have to love it when you husband tells his buddies at work how crazy you are. At least they are warning him about it getting worse, and maybe it won't seem so bad later. 42% or 3 mths left, however you want to look at it! Congrats!
