Must Haves for PMS

Poor Leo. Around this house PMS lasts days upon days. Tired. Grouchy. Bitchy. Cry baby.

It's awful and pure torture--I'm pretty sure we all suffer around here when PMS comes around. {And why isn't there an anti-PMS medication by now?! There are medications for erectile problems...where is our anti-PMS med?!}.

*Ahem*

I thought I would just make a list of what must be in my house--preferably within an arm's reach...--during this time of h-e-l-l.

*Chocolate. I don't care what kind--except for dark. I want the sugary stuff. If it comes with peanut butter or caramel? Bonus!

*Lifetime Movie Network {or LMN}. Crime, sadness, passion...

*Wine. Or tequila {well, that's at the restaurant}. Or wheat beer.

*Fruit. I bet you thought I would write chips. Or nuts. Or something...tricked ya!

*Stretchy pants. Yoga. Leggings. Whatever. Just know that I won't be wearing anything buttoned or zipped for a few days.

*Long, loose, flow-y tops. Because I really don't like looking pregnant when I'm not...


So there you have it. My must have PMS list. I'm sure everyone was dying to know...but what can I say, it's Friday and I have a hot date with my man tomorrow {his birthday gift! More on that later...} so my mind is all over the place at this time.

What do you have to have or what must steer clear of you for those few days that PMS comes in town? Can't wait to hear {read?} what you all must have...

I with you on the chocolate, that is for sure.

Angie said...

Great list - sounds about right! (although I am a salty kind of girl... just point me to the nearest Salt Lick and you can find me there for a couple days!)

Heather said...

Ugh... I'm in the same boat... I love my nightly baths with a glass of wine also and hot pads for my tummy! :)

Oh and LOADS of advil!

Brittney said...

oh you sound just like me except the fruit part.. you can replace that with ice cream! I love ice cream while im pmsing which increases the need for stretchy pants! haha

Nikki said...

Your list is perfect!!! I'm totally all about the yoga pants. I need something comfy and stretchy!!

Heather B. said...

I'm with Angie. Pass the salt lick!!! :)

Terra said...

I get so stinking edgy, I can't stand myself sometimes - Chocolate is a dailey staple for me though so that doesn't change during PMS. Really, alone time does me a lot of good!!

Midday Escapades said...

I am so with you and for me I add Advil, lots of it. That's how I knew my hubby was the one - when I used to get really bad cramps before the kids came along, he would sit with me and help me through the pain. That and he is a good kisser. LOL.

The name of your blog cracks me up. Ahhh, the joys of PMS. I get it bad. I agree with the chocolate, and I also need Diet Coke and chips.

I wanted to come over and say hi -- thanks for following my blog! I am excited to get to know you!

XOOX

Alright, the commenter who said to point her towards the salt lick?! Freaking' hysterical...and I need one, too. Your list, btw, is almost perfect...with the exception of replacing that fruit with serious doses of salt in almost any form (salty, buttery, popcorn please). Depending on how bad the cramps get, a heating pad is always nice, too!

Life with Kaishon said...

This was a very well thought out list :) Love it. Bring on the flowy tops!

Pres. Kathy said...

Messy Mommy said...

LMN rocks. It's totally depressing looking pregnant when you're not!! Hate that! I still haven't had a visit from Aunt Flo in a year since I'm nursing. Can't say I much miss her.

The Garden Bell said...

You are too fun. Be glad you still have PMS... I don't even want to let you know what your must have's will be on the other side...he-he...

morewineplease said...

My PMS is not near has bad as it used to be... but Lord when it is... I just need people to LEAVE ME ALONE... that's all! :)

Danielle (Life with the Hewitt Family) said...

Chocolate and strechy pants are high on my list too. Just wait for the girls to get older, then it will really be poor Leo. After my step-brothers moved out there were 4 girls and my stepdad. We always laugh about it now when he makes comments about how rough it could get. At the time he couldn't make those comments because he would have to deal with 4 grouchy ladies.

Working Mommy said...

I completely agree with the yoga pants...they are a life-saver...pregnant or PMS-ing - and everything in between!
