just a little crazy

It makes me crazy
whiny kids
shoe shopping
water retention
grumpy husbands
achy joints and a crooked back

I'm in that pissy time of the month... Yea, you heard me. I'm using that excuse. At least that's what I'm hoping it is. Otherwise I've got whiny kids, I'm fat, and I have a grouch for a husband. Makes PMS seem like a pleasant possibility.

I know, I know... wasn't I the one gushing on about "going with the flow" and celebrating this gift of womanhood? Yes I was. Point taken. Time for me to move inward and find that balance again.


Hanging your head
off the side of the bed,
light fixtures look like spinning tops
The room is clear, free of the clutter
I put down a mat in the slats of light from the street
Blood to the head
I can no longer think
And only just feel the lightness of body
Within 5 breaths
it's crumbled to dust
and I've only that space in the air.


  1. christine, i have suffered with bad back and achy joints all week and i am sure it is viral as i am an empty vessel regarding womens the way, my kids whine and so does my husband........groan xx

  2. I love this post!

    So very true!

  3. Suddenly, my worries seem minimal. Dont quite know what else to say.For whatever i say, could well be incongrous or what you are going through.

  4. When I used to have that time of the month - and now when I have those days for other unknown reasons - I just remind myself I probably won't feel this way tomorrow. I try not to resist it.

  5. My inner retreat has done it's magic. Feeling like a new woman today ;) It's remarkable how whining and grumpiness don't bother me as much when I'm feeling physically sound.


...and you may ask yourself, did I get here?
