Irritable Cow Syndrome Part 2

So, the irritability hasn't left me yet. Today, it's slightly subsided, but I still feel it nagging at me.

Yesterday it really unleashed itself.

I went out to get food for dinner last night and I came home and realised I'd forgotten to get dog food (I hate this forgetfulness!)

This was a problem because they're super annoying when they don't get fed at their 'normal' time. I always feed them when I wake up - it's their routine. And since I get up with them, I'm the one who has to deal with them.

I mention it to DH and he said,  "Forget it. I'll go get it tomorrow."

This annoyed me majorly because the shop is literally 5 minutes away from the house. He hadn't moved from the house all day. And he knows how irritable I am at the moment.

I was livid.

While I'm cooking dinner and doing the dishes (it was his turn to do it the day before, but he didn't do it, so I had to do two days worth!) and he asks me "Are you mad?" I turned around and said, 'What do you think?'

We didn't speak for over an hour.

Now when I think about it, I realise it's pretty petty, but it just irritated me so much yesterday.

We ended up getting a call from some friends of ours and they invited us to their place. We got dressed and went there. Our friend says, 'What are you drinking?' and I realised it was a 'Let's get drunk type of party'. Another couple we spend a lot of time with were there as well. I sort of avoided the drink question for a while and then our host passes me a glass of wine.

I accepted it but put it straight down and was talking to the girls. Suddenly S notices I haven't touched my drink. "OMG, are you guys pregnant?' she asks, real loudly. I laugh it off and take a sip of the wine, just to shut them up.

Thankfully they all started getting drunk and didn't realise I wasn't drinking at all. LOL

We came home at about 1am and I was exhausted. I was yawning the whole way home while driving. By the time I got to bed, I was sure I was going to pass out, as soon as my head hit the pillow. But I found I was tossing and turning for a while, willing myself to go to sleep. I ended up getting about 5 hours sleep and now my eyes are burning, I'm so tired.

I think I'll be taking a few naps on the couch today.

I know how you feel about being in those moods, i get it all the time and its like " anything" can set you off.. thats the way I am.. lucky enough hubby goes outside when im like that, and i try to shrug it off!! but it would be a pet peeve too about doing the dishes!.. as much as it seems petty after it, it doesnt seem very petty when its going on! :)

LOL Thanks for the comment! I don't mind doing the dishes, but when it's not my day, then I do mind! It just makes me realise how much I miss my Dishwashing Machine!! Thankfully, my mood seems to be better today :)
