Love in the Time of PMS

I've noticed quite a few bloggers have posted titles with a twist on the "love in the time of cholera" theme, and I just thought I would add my own.

It has been an interesting weekend, friends. I had high hopes of getting so much done, until mother nature reared her ugly head. So, here is a quick run-down of this weekends events:

I have cried 3 times. Twice for no good reason, and once while watching "Father of the Bride II."

I have eaten enough carbs to make even my comfiest pants feel like Spanx.

I nearly got run-over in the parking lot of Panera Bread.

I had a wonderful decorating idea that I was so excited to blog about, until I realized that it was a fire hazard. Let's just say, candles and dried moss do NOT go together well (don't worry, no one was hurt!). (On that note, for a funny example of taking Scripture out of context, click here.)

I planned on a day filled with fun, excitement, and cleaning, and ended up with this:

(This photo was actually taken last Fall during a particularly nasty bout with the flu, but you get the picture.)

So, needless to say, my plans were changed a bit. Thankfully, I have a wonderful husband who makes me tea and graciously soothes my rampant emotions. I was also reminded of how God's plans are often so different from my own.

Proverbs 16:9 says, "In his heart a man plans his course,
but the LORD determines his steps."

So many times, we make plans only to have them rearranged, or completely changed by unforeseen events. I don't think that means that we should never plan anything, but rather that we should remain open to other possibilities. For me, that means a day of rest when I hoped to accomplish more. But maybe I needed this day, these moments of peace and quiet.

Pass the Pamprin, please.


  1. Ugh. No fun! I feel like ends with me wishing I had somehow gotten more done. It's exhausting!! I hope this week is off to a better start...

  2. I have so been there! I have to say, your scripture verse made me laugh out loud! So funny!

  3. You crack me up...but oh how those words from Proverbs are true!

  4. LOL, you are so hilarious, I love your blog posts! And yes, when mother nature rears her ugly head and PMS hits, YUCK!!

  5. I love it! Lol. I've had a few of those days...when cheesy commercials make me cry! ;0) Hope you're feeling much better!

  6. @ Cindy- Oh yes, I understand. Maybe it is the "music major" personality living on inside of us still!

    I'm glad I'm not the only one that feels that way- I think we all have "those" days. =) Here's to starting a new week!
