I know, I HAVE been bipolar lately.

I am SORRY! I can't help it! Mike says, "Geez, you're so hormonal lately." Um. Yeah? And I can help that by doing....?

I woke up on the wrong side of bed, and it took me until about 2PM to feel normal. Not sure what happened, other than maybe a bus ran over me in my sleep. I woke up more exhausted than when I went to bed. Gladly, I felt better and have been getting things done i.e. laundry, cleaning, organizing.

I won't lie, I have been like a total roller coaster lately. Mike was gone camping Saturday night, and then Sunday I went down to Old Town to a couple bead shops, then went to swim at the pool, and hit up the grocery store on the way back home. I knew he was home at around 1PM because he called me to see what I was doing. So...when I got home at around 5PM I walked in to him laying around on the couch (in his birthday suit) eating, drinking, tinkering on the laptop, and more or less doing absolutely nothing. His "HEY BABY!" when I walked in sort of ticked me off even more. Why did this scene that I walked in to bother me so much? Probably because I am, oh, hormonal? Maybe? I walked in and washed the dishes and started laundry and organized some baby shower gifts...and as I was doing things he goes "would ya settle down? sit down." My response was something like, "Well, I am doing LIFE things. You won't have any clean clothes if I don't." We went to see a movie at 7PM...and he succeeded in sitting on his (indecent) ass until then. Not until later did I tell him he had pissed me off. That is totally my fault, as I should have just told him right off. I'm learning.

So here are my questions. Why and when do men forget how to do laundry, or even better, forget where the washing machine is? Why do men think the sink is the dishwasher? Why is it okay to take their clothes (ALL of them) off in the middle of the living room?

...and most importantly...

You live with a pregnant woman, it is about 85 degrees in the house, so WHY isn't the AC fixed yet when if I've asked 10 times???

Well, men and women will always be different I realize. Most of the time I really love him, but of course, I have my bitch moments. As long as I can get over these moments, and he can sometimes realize I can't help it, we'll be okay. I can accept him if he can accept me. It's a work in progress. Thankfully, I live with a guy who can hear what I say but not take it too seriously. And thankfully for him, I realize he just can't HELP his stupidity. :-)


  1. Well, first off, you do have a right to be peeved, pregnant or not.

    Second, I too remember those insane, uncontrollable mood swings. With my first baby I started to read the "What to expect" book. Well, after too many nights of me being too tired to make dinner (and my DH not doing it) and crying into a bowl of Cheerios ....(sniff) "I'm not feeding the baby the right foods!".....(sniff, sob, blow nose) I pitched that book right out.

    Hang in there!!!

  2. I think I would have been mad too, pregnant or not! It seems like you have a pretty good grasp on things though, despite the hormones. ;) Ask your husband every once in a while to clean the dishes so you can rest your feet on the couch every once in a while! =-)

  3. The only reason I can think of that he wouldn't get the AC fixed for a pregnant woman is that he has a death wish.

  4. Oh'd think he'd know by your response about his having clean clothes he would have picked up on the tension - Men!! LOL.

    I don't know how you live in a house without A.C. Maybe it's the dry heat?

  5. The dry heat helps a little, but not really. The fact that I am way larger than I have ever been probably doesn't help much. I sweat bullets now even if it's cold out.
