An All-Around Bummer Of A Day ๐ŸŒง๏ธ

Hey everyone. Iโ€™m sorry for being so quiet today. ๐Ÿ˜“ Things are ok hurricane-wise. The winds are supposed to start in about an hour and last throughout the night. Iโ€™m still in the library with the window openโ€ฆ itโ€™s really calm. ๐Ÿ˜ถ

But PMS is hitting me as hard as it did last month. ๐Ÿ˜ฃ Iโ€™m in a horrible, HORRIBLE mood which is a real contrast to my usual. You see all the happy posts almost every day and most of the time Iโ€™m pretty happy, but my PMS can put me in a โ€œI hate my life/body/everything/drawing isnโ€™t fun/reading or gaming isnโ€™t fun/anything I eat makes me feel guilty/wish I could sleep this away but Iโ€™m not sleepyโ€ moodโ€ฆ andโ€ฆ it sucks. ๐Ÿ˜ฅ I feel almost violently angry so I stay by myself so my poor husband isnโ€™t forced to deal with me since there is nothing he can do that will cheer me up.

I tried cafรฉ con leche and cookies and I hated myself for eating them. But time with the ratties and reading Little Lulu made me feel marginally better. Anyway sorry for such a long whiny post. Itโ€™s just one of those daysโ€ฆ ๐ŸŒง๏ธ

Quality Ratty Time ๐Ÿญ๐Ÿ’•

Itโ€™s almost impossible to cuddle Croissant AKA Bitey, but I did it today. ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿ’•

I know my grumpy girlโ€™s little quirks well enough that I rarely, if ever, get bit these days. My husband handles the ratties plenty but he doesnโ€™t know which tiny things set my grump off. She wonโ€™t draw blood but she had a rough start and doesnโ€™t generally enjoy handling, and when she does, sheโ€™s very particular. She will let you know if sheโ€™s unhappy. I treasure these moments when she tolerates me.


She let me pet her head with my finger for a full minute! Sheโ€™s just been cuddly today with me and with Dorito too. Thatโ€™s a relief since I worry about Dorito being lonesome with Queso now gone…

A handsome boy, he is.
