I get blamed for being cranky because of PMS.
I get upset about something (small) and then get the look.
The one that comes when you are overanalyzing the importance of having a clean towel at the sink and how ridiculous it was that any member of the household could think it was ok to clean up the spilled juice with the towel and hang it up again to be used to dry my just washed hands. Are we that barbarian????!!!!!
“Do you think you are really mad about the towel or could you possibly be starting your….?”
“Don’t be the guy that says I’m upset because I’m menstrual. Anyone in their right mind would be upset about this.”
To which your brain comes up with 8 billion different reasons that has nothing to do with hormones and everything to do with the incompetence of your family. And you can’t let it go because you have a new problem that you need to over think – You find every reason in the book proving why this is actually a big issue. You must expand the problem and show how it damages the family in the long run because of lack of responsibility and cleanliness leading to total mayhem.
How can he not see this? I’ll typically ask myself.
And then I’ve worked myself into the worst mood ever and everyone else is to blame.
Could it really be “a girl thing” that caused me to over think myself into a frenzy?
I don’t know. I do know that this morning I wiped up the spilled coffee and left the towel at the sink. I’m pretty sure I dried my just washed hands with it.
