Not a whole lot has happened this week besides for a PMSing crazy lady breakdown in the store. The crazy lady being me!
Me and the hubs went shopping and we were at a store I had only been to once. I had a long grocery list and was already stressed. See I get easily stressed out about the smallest things, such as meal planning, grocery shopping, plans, my animals, and life in general. Usually I can contain myself and handle it like a sane person but this week was different! I am still convincing the hubby that healthy, clean meals are just as good and cheap as unhealthy meals. He has been a trooper and supports me so much. It still is added pressure on me though. I am making food that I never have before and eating foods that 3 weeks ago I didn’t even know what they were. On top of all that I was about to have my lady time. Two days out of the month I turn into a monster that gets ill if my husband opens a door wrong. Bless his heart, he takes my abuse and still loves me.
OK… Got a little sidetracked… Back to my story. So in the grocery store with a long list of food that I had no clue where it was. I didn’t want to look like I was stupid so instead of asking the people who worked there, I figured I would just wonder around the store like a lost child. An HOUR later and not even half my list checked off, the stress was building. My husband had stepped outside to take a call from work and I was alone. I pushed my cart to the corner of the store and started to cry. Not like a little tear rolling down my cheek but a full on bawl session. Someone came up to me (I am sure someone who worked there) asked me if I was okay… I said “My food! I can’t find my food!” then started pulling stuff out of my cart and handing it to this random person. Not sure why I did any of that…. Then my sanity kicked in for a second and I realized what I was doing… I grabbed my wallet and list and took off in a marathon run out of the store.
At the time I was so embarrassed I couldn’t bring myself to go back into the store. This was a very low point in my life.
The next day I woke up and laughed, picked myself up, and headed back to the store with my head held high! Managed to get everything on my list and vowed that I would never go shopping while I was insane PMSing lady every again!
Moral of the story 1)Always laugh at yourself 2)Don’t cry in the corner of a grocery store!
