Almost DONE

Two and a half days in the classroom with HH, and I can say we finished!  Oh yeah!  Now that things are organized and back into place, I can start with the important stuff of planning.  It is just how my brain works that I have to have general order before I can begin to think about planning my lessons.

Last night HH and I went to the film discussion of Alfred Hitchcock's "Rebecca."  I am really getting into these film discussions.  I don't watch anything with near the technical eye HH does, but then again he majored in theater in undergrad.

After my meeting this morning, and HH and I working in the classroom all afternoon we went to the pool, had dinner, and played games with our friends.  I posed HH as a teapot.  It was awesome.

Personal stuff...

My mom is reaching a very angry point with my sister and her husband.  (They are now living with my parents.)  I spoke with my mom tonight, and she is finally really angry.  Like the point of anger where she is going to take some sort of action.  She even said to my sister's husband that he lied to her, and called him out on a specific lie.  She has put it on the back burner for so long, this is really an answer to prayer.  Change is coming.

Body related stuff....I started my period when I was 13 years old.  I never really had the emotional roller coaster that I saw some of my friends have on a monthly basis.  You could probably never guess I was on my period, that was how constant I stayed.  Maybe once a year, I might have a small isolated episode, but nothing like what I saw friend's encounter.  I have cried a few times over the past few days over seemingly nothing.  I am going to talk with my doctor about this.  HH is such a wonderful listener.  I told him that this was really new territory for me.  I have seen women use this hormonal time period as a license to be rude to all who dare cross them, and I wanted to assure HH this wasn't the case for me.  Any thoughts ladies?

You have no idea how lucky you are that your hormones have always stayed on an even keel. The older I get, the more out of control I feel during that time. I almost think I'm developing PMDD, and it ain't pretty! :(

And, yes, you're very lucky to have a husband like Ben, who is such a great listener, and is so understanding. :)

I just think being open about it and letting HH know that you aren't upset with him, etc. but that your hormones are a little out of whack.

Hormones aren't something a guy really understands, so with that in mind, they don't really understand the mood swings and irrationality that come with them. So as long as he is reassured it's nothing he's done and that you can't control it, I think it'll be okay.

I went on Seasonique for a VERY short time (the pill that givse you 4 periods a year) Not long after starting, I became a weepy mess over NOTHING. I was that girl who, if I was looked at, I broke into tears. Literally, someone looked at me, and I starting crying and said "What are you looking at?"

It was so uncharacteristic of me, I knew that pill was really wreaking havoc on my body chemisty, so I promptly stopped it.

Hope the hormones balance themselves out. I'm like you - never much of a problem, and I hope it stays that way!
