Irrationality

Irrationality is crying for 3 hours and 11 minutes over losing a bid on Ebay for an Old Navy monkey romper. Granted, the hostile bidder suspiciously waited until I had less than a minute left on my auction, denying me the ability to counter. But you would have thought the world was going to end. My whole evening was ruined from this discovery. My son was supposed to have that romper! I imagined him in it. And then it was gone. Poor DH spent those 3+ hours of hysterics trying to find a similar outfit online to no avail.


I knew I was being unreasonable. It was almost like an out of body experience where I was hovering above myself, telling myself to stop being so dramatic. After all, there are sooooo many more things in life that are much more important. But my emotions were uncontrollable. Rage. Disappointment. I just had to get it out.


The only thing that got me to calm down was a "speeze" incident, in which I sneezed and promptly peed through my underwear and yoga pants onto the couch. I didn't even realize I had to pee. I couldn't help but giggle after that. Guess I need to work on those Kegels...

I'm sorry, I don't mean to laugh but this post was gosh darn funny.

If it helps: Last weekend I burst into tears and hysterics because my husband forgot to take out the garbage. I was so upset about it I was shaking. It took me a good hour to get over it.

Hooray for hormones!!

Oh, I agree with M....I am still an emotional timebomb and Elliote is 14 weeks old!!

Hang in there honey! Glad you have a good sense of humor about it after the fact!

Speeze, that's a great word. I'm so gonna use it.

I've also heard it called "snissing"!

Embrace the irrationality!

Haven't done the pee thing, although with all the preg related d/c pantyliners feature heavily in my wardrobe.

Hopefully you find another suit you like just as much- and did you know there's websites that can bid on your behalf at the last sec to secure your item? That's what some sneaky people use.

Well, I cried over losing a bid on the perfect nursery set. So, I guess that's just what happens when you mix hormones with evil e-bay!

And I haven't speezed . . . YET! :)

Crying definitely seems to come a little easier these days. I guess the good part about it is that most times we can laugh at ourselves after the fact. Well, most times... :)
