Dreary weather combined with PMS is not a good combination. At least not if you are me. I have zero patience and a short window for friendliness on a good day, you give me clouds and a week of PMS mood plus bloating, it’s best you steer clear. Or at the very least, do not call me.
If my phone rings, it’s a double WTF situation right now. Seriously. First it’s WHO the F#$% is calling me and WHAT the F#$% do they want from my life.
And then there’s my son. He’s okay and all but lately all I do is drive him everywhere and then take him somewhere else from there. And what’s with the traffic no matter the time of day or my location? Doesn’t anyone work 9 to 5 in an office anymore? I don’t, but someone must? I swear it feels like everyone is on the road instead of in an office.
Actually, let’s back up a minute to my son. He likes to piss me off whenever he can. I bought him this little bag of Barbara’s Snackimals the other afternoon, thinking what a nice little bag of cookies to surprise him with when he got home from school.
I should have known better.
First, I shouldn’t have announced that I bought him a bag of cookies. I should have let him discover the bag in the kitchen on his own.
Telling him that I bought him a bag of cookies which I thought he would like opened up a serious can of worms for him to attack me.
It went something like this:
Me: Oh, I bought you a cute little bag of cookies today!
Him: (first smiles an evil smile) Let’s see these cookies. I’m sure they are something organic.
Me: Whatever, at least I thought of you.
Him when seeing the cookies: Most mothers when they announce to their children that they bought them cookies mean Oreo’s. These are Barbara’s Organic Snackimals.
Me: You used to like them and just because they are organic does not mean they aren’t good! And they are chocolate chip! Fine. Don’t eat them.
Him: Makes faces and more remarks at me while eating the whole bag.
Trust me when I say he is no different now than when he was little. At three years old, I surprised him with a Candy Land coloring book when picking him up from preschool. He looked at the coloring book and looked at me and simply said, “This? This is what you call a surprise?”
He’s out to get me. Always has been.
