pms: it's not just for women anymore

This morning was a not a good morning. I have a friend in town and wanted to get out the door in a timely manner to meet her but jparks decided to throw a wrench into my plans by pms'ing. He declared that none of his clothes matched or fit right and he had nothing, absolutely nothing to wear to work. Then he proceeded to do this:
Sorry for the crappy picture, I can't find my speedlight for the d80

That would be all of his button down shirts and some of his pants thrown on the bed during his fit of frustration. It would be a safe assumption that I nearly murdered him. When he told me that I needed to dress him today I responded, through gritted teeth, that it's my job to dress the child but as an adult he is on his own. We've been married long enough now that he should know not to screw with me precoffee.

And, as if this whole clothes freak out wasn't enough to crush my will to live, I got ready to make my iced coffee only to realize I left my mint chocolate soy milk sitting on the table all night. And right next to it was my egg nog soy milk. fuuuuuuck. I'm so glad I bought both of those the night before and spent my dream time imagining the perfect cup of iced coffee I would get in the morning.

The only redeeming thing was that I remembered this was in my fridge:

I added it to the top of my beverage and it was exactly the oomph I was hoping for. If you live near a Safeway or Randalls I suggestion you pick up a bottle or 10. Also, it's light with only 15 calories per serving so you won't feel any guilt when you random grab it from the fridge and squirt it directly into your mouth.


  1. I should use that instead of the peppermint mocha creamer. I bet it will be less calories and yummier.

    AND I'm going grocery shopping tonight! YAY!

  2. I can't believe we had the exact same experience with our husbands - total meltdown in this house and as a result, about two large leaf bags of clothes were given away. And now we can't go anywhere "nice" until we replace part of his wardrobe. To that end, looking at BR site as we speak....
