Throwing A Fit

I'm a brat.

On Monday, within 5 minutes of walking in the door from work, I looked around my messy house, and was ticked. M. is off on Mondays, and had obviously done no chores while I was at work. Miss O. ran up to me, and said, "Grandma brought me tomatoes". Glancing at her, I noticed that she was still wearing her pajamas.

"Where did you see Grandma?", I inquired.

"She came here.", was Miss O.'s innocent reply.

Are you kidding me?

I barely get along with my in-laws. I sure don't want them showing up unannounced at my home. Especially when I'm NOT there. Don't get me wrong, they're nice enough, but I always feel like I'm being judged, you know?

I lost it. Yelling and crying. Screaming and stomping my feet.

Sadly, I don't even have any excuse, as we're in the middle of a non-medicated cycle. Poor M. took the brunt of it, just staring at me. Finally, as I start to settle down, he looks at me and says, "I wasn't going to tell you, but they're watching Miss O. all night on Saturday so that we can go out and have some fun."

Yup, I'm a brat.


  1. That's so something I would do: Come in and lose it on my husband, only to find out that he's been planning something really sweet. Always blows up in my face.

    I think you're entitled though: I always chalk it up that I didn't know, but his doing that doesn't excuse what he didn't do.

    Does that make sense?

  2. lol-only laughing because i honestly would have had the same reaction!!! plus i always feel like if the house isn't in order they would say "oh well melissa doesn't take care of the house or him...blah blah" :)

    That's awesome about saturday night!! Woot woot! what are you guys going to do?

  3. You know what? I would've done the same thing. It ticks me off to no end that my husband doesn't do JACK SQUAT except the computer, TV, or XBOX when he is home. Hormonal or not, I don't think you were entirely out of line.

  4. Ouch.

    LOL...I just hope you had fun with hubby.

    Hey your Octopus Cake looks phenomenal!!!

  5. Does that mean sometimes hissy fits are rewarded??? LOL...

    I feel like throwing a fit today if that makes you feel any better!?!?!

    I hear ya on In-Laws ... my ex-In-Law's sucked and my current In-Law's aren't much better... but hey, I got the best thing out of them :) So I guess I can't complain to much!

    Stopped by via the ICLW links :)

  6. Yep, I think we've all been guilty of that at some point! Gotta love it when DH's sweetness comes back to bite him! LOL! :-)


  7. Haha, whoops.
    You're totally not a brat, we all have those days (especially when it come to the in-laws, ahem).

  8. Enjoy your night out! Sometimes we just need to have that tanty, even if nothing eventuates out of it it feels good to let it out!


  9. LOL It's okay to laugh now, right? lol It's Saturday night, so I hope you're having fun!

  10. What's up with you? Happy ICLW!

  11. Sometimes being a woman is perogitive enough to throw a tantrum. :)

  12. Oh brutal. Don't be too hard on yourself, we all have bratty moments.

    Enjoy your "night off"!

  13. Haha! Oops!

    Good husband for your night off.

    Hope you had a great night!!


  14. aww. Every one is allowed to throw a fit every now and then!!!
