To say I was a ticking time bomb this weekend would be an understatement… I was such an uncontrollable mess of mood swings. Considering how blissful and happy I was feeling on Thanksgiving Eve, I have to say, I was just as surprised as anyone else. It started on Thanksgiving. I woke up with a rageful fire burning in my stomach just waiting to attack. It’s strange because I didn’t go to bed angry, no one wronged me in my dreams… it was just totally random. Luckily, it only lasted for a few hours in the morning and after a couple snaps at my husband and maybe one at my dad, I was shaken out of the trance and returned to my normal – but very embarrassed and sorry – self. I spent the remainder of the day bringing my husband plates of food, tail between my legs and white flag in hand.
Unfortunately, I didn’t seem to learn my lesson. While we had a pretty great weekend, I felt a little clouded with these random fits of rage. I think yesterday was the worst because there weren’t any weird lashings, just an overwhelmingly gloomy disposition. Until the evening, I think I may have smiled once. I just wasn’t in the mood for anything.
I’m feeling better and more myself this morning, so I’m hopeful this evil trance will end, but who could really say?
I guess for now, friends and family, BEWARE!
Here are some photos from the long weekend…

More breast exams.
AHH! And, one last (very exciting) thing! My dear friend, Carrie, just found out this morning that she’s having a little boy! All of us girls had made a bet and Kate and I won 🙂 We knew it was a little boy. So excited to meet the handsome fella.
While I haven’t mentioned this every day, which is how long it’s been going on, I continue to be a very bloated person who does not have any regularity when it comes to bathroom schedules. I’m sure between the iron in my prenatal and all the crazy hormones, my body is very backed up. Needless to say, I’m trying to take in as much fiber as possible. My new best friends: prune juice, broccoli, apples, and any other fiber-rich food I can get my hands on.
Other than that, I’m fighting a damn cold, which is really bringing me down. The last two nights I’ve had such a hard time sleeping, which is not good. Urgh. Fingers crossed for a quick recovery.
