Who IS that Bee

Thursday, June 20, 2013

Be forewarned, this is a TOM rant. Hopefully not a typical rant, but more of a self awareness.

We all hate t.o.m. -- the pain (literally), the fatigue. Its just one big p.i.a.

But I don't like the tom me. She's a real B** Now of course after more than 30 years of this, I've learned to not let this person out of my head, but WOW. She cusses like a sailor and is just plain mean... But I don't let her out. It can be a real battle.
For instance:
Did I smack the cereal out of my DH's hands when his crunching was really, really getting on my nerves?
No I did not. I simply removed myself from the room.
Did I flip the bird to the driver(s) that found it necessary to pull in front of me?
No I did not. - but I did visualize it.
Did I rip the modem out of the wall when the satellite internet was sucking last night?
No I did not - but if any one reading this has any influence in the cable company... please please tell them to run a line to my house!
Did I let out a few curse words with my purse fell out of the car and dumped all over the place?
Well - Yes I did do that, but I was alone!

So men, if you've read this far and you have a loved one that seems distracted, just know that they could be struggling very hard to control the B inside. emoticon -- Or not.

Meanwhile I'll continue to fight the B in my head and then move on.

On the bright side, I get one H** of a workout in. Displaced anger does wonders for weight lifting!

    My husband caught me laughing out loud at your blog. I'm past that time of life and still remember how crazy it can be. A "happy" place is important to retreat to - one with lots of comfort and freedom to do nothing or everything! emoticon

    This was me two weeks ago. My MIL and FIL were in town for 10 days and they were getting on my nerves. Everything was ticking me off and then low and behold TOM shows up.
    I think it is awesome you used your emotions and directed them to a great workout!

    Sara, whether Tom is around or that Witch, I'd flip that driver any day (unless I go within speed). So back to your 'out of order' or 'malfunctioning' days hang in there, it'll be over soon.

    Just to be safe, I'll try to keep everyone away.
    Everyone, emoticon . emoticon ahead. emoticon before contacting Sara.

    There is hope! I'm on the other side of hormones. Now the only thing that annoys me is the fact my body is aging WAY too fast and time flies! Ha!

    I Love that you funneled the energy and frustration into your workouts. WAY TO GO!

    TOM arrived this morning. No wonder I was out of sorts this past two days. I think I am a week early too. Oh well... The Bee is out but hopefully I can keep her tame. I snapped at my youngest last night because I kept having to repeat myself, ugh! Now I know why.

    I'm right there with you!!
    Except sometimes, the B wants to come out even when tom isn't around... that's my REAL internal battle :)

    Hope you have a better today than yesterday!

    This cracked me up, BUT... it was also very wise. And I'm glad you let loose when you were alone in the car. One of my teammates says "BIBO - Breathe In, Breathe Out". I hope you continue to win this battle. (But maybe not your team win the BLC!) emoticon

    Wow...I could have written this, however, I have no control over my B emoticon

    emoticon It will soon be over.

    You are so funny! I have one of those B's too, but unfortunately mine does on occasion slip by and gets out!!

    Yep - let that B out!!! No better place for her to raise her ugly head than with those weights - or on the treadmill..... Maybe she will get tired and take a nap.
