My life in Gifs

I feel like I don't have the capability of dealing with life today. To the shock of absolutely no one, I've been chronically grumpy and I can't seem to get my emotions in check. This is the week leading up to my dreadful "lady time", but I normally don't fall apart like this so early in my menstrual cycle. Something's amiss.

Last night I let my vanity get the best of me and I totally fell apart, crying to Clayton about how I don't want to go out in public because my hormones decided to gang up on me and leave a trail of pimples along the sides of my face and neck. I even have a few zits cascading down my back and, heaven forbid, my tushy. I blame running and my excessive sweating, but that doesn't make me feel any less disgusting. I haven't been this broken out in months.

On top of that, I had a hair appointment on Wednesday and instead of touching up my highlights, I asked that my stylist just add more lowlights because I can't afford the upkeep and want to get closer to my natural hair color. Well, the lowlights came out really dark and I honestly don't think it's a shade that flatters my skin tone. The contrast between my hair and skin looks stark, not at all natural. I called my stylist to see if it could be fixed, and not only has she not returned my call, the receptionist said I would most likely be charged to have it taken care of. To which I say, "Rude."

So I'm zitty, and I look like a vampire.

And finally, the first week I laid out in the sun this year I must have applied my sunscreen unevenly because I have a dark splotch of tanned skin on my cheek. It won't go away. It's barely faded. If I choose to lay out more, it's only going to get darker, thus becoming more difficult to get rid of. I've been exfoliating the area daily and have been shielding my face from the sun at all costs, but nothing's helping.

So I'm zitty, I look like a vampire, and I probably have permanent sun damage.

Vanity aside, a few other issues have reared their ugly heads (stressors that I'm not ready to discuss on the interwebs) and to be completely honest with you, I just want to sleep and pretend like they don't exist. That's my new motto: Repress and ignore. I've only been able to operate at one of two emotional levels this week:



And quite frankly, I don't have the energy for either right now. I'm really praying I can revive myself this weekend with friends, family time, and copious amounts of wine.

Thank goodness it's Friday.

What do you do to get rid of the blues?


  1. If I have the blues, yet still have energy, I go out and garden. Sure it's hot and dirty, but nothing calms me better. If I don't have the energy to do that, you know one of those days where "Even moving makes me angry!" I listen to my favorite music loudly and sing off key enough at my dog until I can't do anything but laugh. It does work!
