It's My Time

There are several times of the month for me.

No, not just one, thanks for asking.

There are:

'I'm getting my period'

'I have my period'

and the ever popular ....

'I just got over my period'

There was a brief reprieve during pregnancy when all three of the above were replaced with two little words:

'I'm pregnant'

Some things are bigger than all of us.

So according to my calculations, there are about three days out of the month that I am not discussing, avoiding sex or blaming things on my period.

Yes, I make for an excellent dinner companion.

It's the natural order of things, as well as a mental and physical bloodbath for all involved.

That's just a bonus.

I'd take out a billboard of apology but being that I only have a few years of bloodbath left in me, what's the point?

Knowing that my time is numbered, I often wonder how I will fill the other twenty-seven days of talk time. What will I talk about?

Who will I blame???

Oh that's right!


How fun!!

I just love having a plan!

How about you? (-:

All the more reason to wish for early onset of the Big M, huh? Snuggled up near you on SITS this morning!

Cybil on February 23, 2010 at 3:17 AM said...

Ha ha! I just told the kids last night that my period is coming - I have cramps. The little darlings know that those words are code for "Watch your step!"

Turning the Clock Back on February 23, 2010 at 3:28 AM said...

It is better that those days when you are saying "My period is LATE!" :)


Diane Laney Fitzpatrick on February 23, 2010 at 4:05 AM said...

Menopause kicks period's ass. Plus it's not on any schedule so it keeps you guessing.

Mad Mom on February 23, 2010 at 4:26 AM said...

LOVE this post!!

Dual Mom on February 23, 2010 at 4:27 AM said...

It's good to know you have it well thought out!

Robin on February 23, 2010 at 4:42 AM said... true and sad also...3 days...thats exactly right...holy shit...still Ill take that over the unknown of the big "M"..Lol

hypermom on February 23, 2010 at 4:46 AM said...

Bwahahaha I am on the tail end of my mine ;)

Moooooog35 on February 23, 2010 at 5:04 AM said...

I've been blaming things on your menopause for a while now.

Feels good to get that off my chest.

Ducky on February 23, 2010 at 6:18 AM said...

I love how positive your outlook on the future is! You are an amazing woman!

MommaKiss on February 23, 2010 at 6:46 AM said...

I have so many more "times" of the month, it's not even funny. All it takes is a look. The Look. And anyone knows not to f*ck w/ this kid.

Jules AF on February 23, 2010 at 6:46 AM said...

I am on birth control so that I don't have to blame my crazy behavior on my period. I'm in love.

Aunt Juicebox on February 23, 2010 at 6:52 AM said...

I'm actually kind of looking forward to menopause myself. I'm just sick of the whole thing. I already act pretty crazy so nobody will probably notice a difference. lol

BLOGitse on February 23, 2010 at 8:04 AM said...

Isn't it great to be a woman! :)


Shell on February 23, 2010 at 8:13 AM said...

I think there might be a whole week each month for me that I'm not blaming my period.

Anonymous said...

PERImenopause has its advantages, too! There's always something good about being a female ... well, at least there's always some good EXCUSES when you're a female.

Jayne Martin on February 23, 2010 at 9:04 AM said...

I hit menopause in my early 40's and just sailed through it. No biggie. I think the less body fat you have, the easier it is, or so I've been told, and I've always been a skinny Minnie. I was never so happy in my life than the day I kicked that free-loading bitch, Aunt Flo, to the curb.

Vintage Christine on February 23, 2010 at 10:37 AM said...

Like every, of course, I celebrated the day when I realized that I hadn't gotten my period and I wasn't even pregnant. God in Her infinite wisdom decided, however, that She was going to even things up by creating "the bladder problem." It just never ends . . .

Just A Normal Mom on February 23, 2010 at 10:41 AM said...

OMG I LOVE this! I can relate to ALL THREE "times" of the month. My poor husband spends his life wondering when those three days are...

Nancy C on February 23, 2010 at 10:51 AM said...

I never get my period, but yet I find a way to stay a bitch. It's my talent.

Anonymous said...

That is just so funny. But menopause? Not so looking forward to being a man with t*ts. I think I'll stay with bitch.

Miss Spoken on February 23, 2010 at 12:47 PM said...

I like to refer to my uterus as a crime scene and often try to remove it with a soup ladle.

Nikki on February 23, 2010 at 2:33 PM said...

Too funny! I think the tide table is in sync with my time of the month. I'm either high or low. Or hungry. I'm a bitch when I'm hungry too.

ReformingGeek on February 23, 2010 at 2:46 PM said...

I'm friends with "peri" or maybe I should say "peri" and I have our moments. "Peri" is a just a warm-up with no plan.

Yes, it's fun to blame things on "peri".

I hope my experience with the Big M is like Jayne's.

Cameron on February 23, 2010 at 3:38 PM said...

flippin hilarious!!!! you will come up with something, no doubt !!!
Found you over at thinktankmomma! am new follower!

C'mon by!

I have a feeling I'll be getting my period until I need adult diapers, but then I'll have an assortment of vaj contraptions to choose from. It's an adult diaper and period pad. Happy days! I blame it on those slutty cows on the pill.

Jodie Ansted on February 24, 2010 at 3:17 AM said...

Funny! Never thought about it all that way before....hmmmm....

Joann Mannix on February 24, 2010 at 4:44 AM said...

A few years ago, I had a hysterectomy and Hallelujah!!!! The angels of the tired, old reproductive organs came to take my little whore of a uterus up to heaven. I haven't looked back once. Sorry! I don't miss those days.

Jenny on February 24, 2010 at 6:30 AM said...

Periods...menopause...periods...menopause....ummmm...... periods for sure!

And see how many I used in this comment just to show how strongly I feel about that! ha.

PS Saw you on PJ's blog and stopped in to say hi!

BugginWord on February 24, 2010 at 7:08 AM said...

My husband just loves it when I keep him apprised of my clot situation...almost as much as I love hearing about the funk level surrounding his balls. Communication is key, doncha think?

Yankee Girl on February 24, 2010 at 9:48 AM said...

I am not sure whether I should leave a comment or not. I don't want you to hate me....

I rarely blame things on my period.

There, I said it. Can we still be friends?

I do have other times of the month though, like complaining about post workout pain, complaining that I actually have to cook, complaining that we are out of wine.

Anonymous said...

I blame everything on my period!!

Whatever will we do when the big "M" hits???
Oh right,
we'll blame it on that instead! LOL

Great post.
I heart you ♥ ;)

In high school my parents would shout "EARMUFFS!" at the dinner table because I was so bad for my period/sex/all things unsuitable for dinner talky talk. ;)

Lothiriel on February 24, 2010 at 12:41 PM said...

I just got my first period after giving birth 4 months ago. It suckssssssssssss!!! ;P

The Absence of Alternatives on February 24, 2010 at 12:52 PM said...

I sweat very easily. I melt in heat. I love saying that I have a hot flash but it always makes people nervous. They'd look at me, feigning surprise, "Oh, you don't look that old!" No. I don't. And I am just kidding. Bah.

Carrie on February 24, 2010 at 2:28 PM said...

I am so happy that the IUD I had put in has made my period vanish *poof*! Not that it was a huge issue before but to be free from the hassle ALL THE TIME is sweet :)

Loved your post tho. Visiting from SITS

Joey Lynn Resciniti on February 24, 2010 at 5:59 PM said...

Seasonique. Quarterly period. It's really worth it.

Joy@TPMG on February 24, 2010 at 8:38 PM said...

Thanks to pregnancy and breastfeeding I haven't had to deal with that pesky problem for awhile. Thank goodness. Hormones and lack of sleep have become the runners-up as far as excuses. I need something to blame for crankiness.

Claudya Martinez on February 24, 2010 at 9:15 PM said...

I can't really discuss this topic right now because I'm about to get my period.

Unknown on February 25, 2010 at 3:56 AM said...

Oh yeah I forget I have this to look forward too

Ever noticed all our problems begin with men ??

* Mental illness
* Menstrual cramps
* Mental breakdown
* Menopause
* Gynecologist

Nicole @ Chic and Cheap Nursery on February 25, 2010 at 8:06 AM said...

I just got over my period and i can't stop talking about how horrendous it was. Sometimes I think it is nature's sick joke and apparently I do NOT have a sense of humor!

My husband says "It's the cycle of life. It's natural."

A-HOLE! If he was bleeding that much for several days, no one would think that sh%t is natural!

WOW! Did I just go menstrual-crazy on your blog?!

Christine on February 25, 2010 at 8:32 AM said...

So we bleed from the crotch several days per month. It could be worse, we could actually squeeze a 9 pound person out of our vajayjay. Oh....wait....

Andrea on February 25, 2010 at 10:11 AM said...

If there's a gripey woman around my husband says, "Oh maybe she's on her period!". It drives me nuts! I always tell him, you aren't allowed to talk like that! Not until HE has a period!

Mimi N on February 25, 2010 at 2:55 PM said...

You are hysterical! I've got a bit of time before the M word hits, but I think I'm in the peri stage. Body is getting a bit wacky and before I only had PMS, I now have DMS (During) and Pms (Post). As my boys get older they will become increasingly scared of me 27-28 days out of the month!

Crystal Escobar on February 25, 2010 at 5:00 PM said...

haha, you're so funny. I love it, and oh so true. My husbands always like, oh, it's the week before, or, it's the week of, or, it's the week after. Then I think, well, when am I not crabby or emotional. I did a post about this a while back, it's in my favorites, if you ever want to read it :)

Anonymous said...

Love it! Its oh so very true.

My husband swears that my period only comes on his days off.

Unknown on February 25, 2010 at 10:12 PM said...

I definitely let the period take the blame...hey if ya got...use it!

Stacy Uncorked on February 26, 2010 at 4:13 AM said...

AHAHAHA!! So funny, and yet so true. ;)

Kmama on February 26, 2010 at 12:49 PM said...

LMAO!! Menopause. Ahh, I can't wait to blame stuff on that. Or maybe I can. Hmm.

adrienzgirl on February 26, 2010 at 8:24 PM said...

You know, I am so done with my uterus. I have no freaking use for it. I wish they would just take it out and save me the troubles!

I am loving you excuses log though! Very nice!

I kind of focus on why I CAN have's worked out well.

A Vapid Blonde on February 27, 2010 at 12:14 PM said...

I am so not looking foward to menopause...It all just seems so awful to when I was accidentaly sent and email from my MIL to a friend of hers with the subject line: "About the dryness thing..."

I thought I was going into early Menopause. I went to the doctor, had some bloodwork, etc. She told me it just The Crazy. Go me.

Grab An Award-see below

Finally, you do not need to be a recipient of an award to give an award!

Grab An Award – My way of awarding it forward. The only rules are: THERE ARE NO RULES (Only rule is no rules? Rule for rules? Is that a rule? I’m so confused)

And what is nicer than giving an award with no strings attached just because?

So in the spirit of fun blog awarding and ‘cause I think they’re a great way to connect and share the blog love with our awesome fellow bloggers (without the chain letter affect-they give me the willies), I have created The Divine Blogger and Rock Star Blogger Awards to grab-I know, fancy right? -(o.k. so I won't quit my day job)

Grab it and let the lucky recipient (s) know that you have given them a rule-free award and not to be afraid to pick it up on your site. Once they grab it from your site, they are free to pass it along to others (rule-free of course). And anyone can grab it from their sites to pass on as well.

Hope you all enjoy awarding it forward!

Now hurry! Go make room in your closet for all that good karma. And please get rid of those old sweatpants while you're at it! (-:

Thanks so much to Lisa at (the Grandma sites got it going on yo) and Robyn at Simply Delightful and Tamara at homespunheartscandlesand Jane @agingmommyblog for this award. You guys are awesome!

Okay, here are my 10 honest things about myself:

1. I am an extremely well balanced individual

2. I am easily distracted

3. I don’t take rules seriously

4. I lied about number one (number 3 made me do it)

5. I have a short attention span

6. I often don’t finish what I sta..
