Hormonal Hijinks

Ladies--ever have those weeks where your hormones are doing the cha-cha? I'm walking around the house ready to burst into laughter or tears or quite possibly both.  My mood alternates between frustration, anxiety, desperation, calm, hopeful, upbeat and right back again, usually in three-minute cycles.  I shifted this weekend between wanting to bite Blair's head off and fling my arms around him and tell him how much I love him.  Psycho...

New projects cross my desk and I am eager to meet the challenge... and the next minute huddled under the desk, hoping it will just go away. Sometimes I think it would be nice to just chuck everything and have my days free to do...whatever.  But then I remember I tried that once and hated it. Back in 2000, I decided to take a year off and do "whatever."  I lasted 3 months before I looked for work. It was miserable, having no purpose or focus in life. I could have stayed in bed every day until two and no one would have been the wiser.  Horrible. All human beings need to feel a sense of purpose in their day--I'm convinced of that.

So I'll work on staying balanced here the next few days and not scare Blair and the cats from the home. Stuff my face in a pillow when I feel meanness coming on and take time to get outside and walk and breathe.  And hopefully the hormone imbalance will take a back seat--at least for this month.
