Nerves plus PMS equals......

An emotional roller coaster ride with multiple stops for snacks.

What?! Amusement park food is good and good for you. Admit it. Greasy burgers. Greasy fries. Greasy funnel cake. Sticky cotton candy. You need something to chase down all that grease. And for dessert you can have a carmel apple. With sprinkles.

Excuse me. Could someone tell the ride operator it's time for another snack stop? NOW!


Okay, kidding aside. I'm having one of those nights where I'm mentally going through everything in the frig and cupboard. I'm tired enough that it can't be something I have to cook, but hungry enough that it could be peanut butter straight from the jar. The spoon is optional. Actually sex would be a damn good substitute instead.

How wrong is that? PMS is not a nice task master. And it’s far kinder to me than it is to the people in my life. My poor, loyal, devoted friends. Some months they deserve hazard pay and a medal of honor. Especially when they share the cookies.

Sorry for the rambling, but I’m really nervous about a medical procedure I’m having tomorrow and the PMS is taking advantage of that. Sometimes it seems to have a life of its own. Which reminds me. I’d better go feed it before it becomes really mean and nasty. Believe me, you do NOT want that to happen.

Quick a care package of girl scout cookies over the internet!!! If I could just get the things to fit in the cable. Drat, Crumbs again!! I'll keep trying.

LMAO!!!

Whatever you do, don't use my favorite cookies. Carmel Delights are too gooey. :P

Oh, Cheri, if only I could overnight you some junk food. Better yet, drive them down myself and we could both have a "feeding frenzy". I love you and will be praying for you.

Hmmm, I wonder how well carrot cake would travel through the mail? :-)

Oooooooo PMS is not fun, and I hate to say this, but wait until you hit menopause, Princess. You'll find that PMS was chocolatey gooey goodness compared to trying to stick your entire body into the freezer at 2am! :):)

I subscribe chocolate AND peanutbutter. Just dunk the chunk of chocy into the jar hon...works like a charm!

Good luck with your procedure tomorrow too!

wendydarling,

Ironically I'm missing cake at work today. We do "Birthday Club" once a month for all the people in that month. Oh well.

Thanks for the prayers and I love you too. I'll keep you guys posted. Like I would make a move without telling Cleggy. :P



empress,

The peanut butter I can do. The chocolate I cannot. Diabetes is also a harsh task master sometimes. But I do buy myself sugar-free chocolate and right now I'm addicted to sugar-free Tootsie Roll Pops.

The diabetes and extra weight keep my body temperature above everyone else's most of the time. My apartment IS a freezer at 2am. Ask Cleggy. That poor boy practically freezes to death here. :)

Empress said...

ahhhhh, the dreaded diabetes. Well, instead of chocolate, how about celery? Pretzel? Finger? LOL

Princess LadyBug said...

Meh. With true PMS logic today I don't want to eat. Ugh.

Empress said...

Then don't eat. Drink. Water, lots of it. I know, I know, doesn't seem like the thing to do when you're probably bloated, but it will help get rid of that bloat. Plus it's great for the skin and hair! :):)

Princess LadyBug said...

I take insulin twice a day plus oral diabetic meds so not eating isn't really an option. I'm drinking a ton of sugar-free lemonade. It's mostly water because I make it a bit weak. I might copy Wil Wheaton and make a grilled cheese. That actually sounds yummy.

Thanks for checking in on me. :)

How about the Turkey drumsticks like at ::tear:: Astroworld... Those were yummy....

Princess LadyBug said...

What a shame Astroworld closed. And it's still looking like it's going to end up a huge parking lot. How messed up is that?!
