Remember the Time I Talked about Breakdowns?

Yeah, just had one. One in which I got home at 10:00, walked into a disaster of a house, and flipped.

I took the laundry and threw it all in the laundry room [very angrily].

I grabbed candy bags and wrappers that were on the couch from trick-or-treaters and threw it into the trash [also very angrily].

I flipped out and screamed at Mike for not having emptied the litter box two days ago when I asked him.

I started crying because I got home from work and went straight to the gym and running errands. I was about to fall over from being so tired and hungry.

I yelled at Mike about the house being a disaster, and how I'm just ready to be finished with being pregnant.

I locked myself in the bathroom and took a hot shower while I cried.

And after it all, Mike came in, gave me a hug, and told me that he loved me. He may have also proceeded to tell me how lucky I am "to have a husband with such thick skin." [<--see b="b" re="re" we="we">real
 over here]
Basically.... our life isn't perfect. I flip out over stupid things, and at the end of it all, Mike is right there waiting for me. It's not always rainbows and sunshine, but even when I want to punch that guy in the face, or he wishes that I would somehow lose my ability to talk [read: nag, yell, whine, etc], we love each other in spite of it all.

That, my friends, is why I revel in the imperfections of life and love - because I have that dude at my side. Not just for today or twenty years from now, but forever.

He sounds like a treasure. Plus I'm sure you aren't as awful as you think.

I've never been pregnant before ... it sounds like it gets a little rough though. Hang in there! :)

Ali Mills said...

Awwwww! I love both of you!! <3 I know those kind of days too well, hope you have a better day tomorrow!!

Samara said...

Oh golly, this is Joel and I all the time- me being an emotional wreck, Joel being as patient as a saint. The only difference between us and you guys though is that I'm not pregnant :P

Rosie said...

Awwww. I think that is on par with my mini golf tantrum of 2011. Hormones eh? Although tempted to throw some laundry myself. Xx

Keri said...

What a blessing he is to you! And in turn, what a blessing you both are to the rest of us with your example of a godly marriage! :)

Laura said...

It sounds like you have a good man there! Flipping out is only normal. Get some rest this weekend!

Georgina Castellucci said...

You deserve someone so patient who knows when you have these moments its just your frustration at things/a situation and not HIM :)
Love that!

Krysten @ Why Girls Are Weird said...

At least you have an excuse. What can I blame when I do things like that!?

Andi of My Beautiful Adventures said...

Niken said...

i think that what perfection is. to adjust and fit each other's imperfection. like a puzzle. nothing's perfect, no one's perfect. love you both! you're not an awful person :)

Whitney H said...

Okay, you're pregnant. Yuu're allowed to be a little crazy from time to time. But me? I'm just impatient and crazy all the time, with no baby in my belleh. :(

Dulce said...

you're human girl, it's ok to have bad moments, and also you have a blessing with that man of yours :)

Maggie B. said...

Oh girl - you just totally described my evening from a few days ago. Except that I'm most certainly not pregnant. Isn't it nice that our men are so forgiving and loving? Thank God!

Sounds like marriage to me, darling. And don't feel overly guilty about flipping out now and again - especially with your hormones going bezerk. Our men know we're nutcases, but they love us anyway :)

Yesi said...

Sounds like a keeper! & Just like my relationship with my boyfriend! Basically decribed our relationship!

xoxo Yesi <3

Don't you just love the fact that you can act like a fool and still have your man waiting on the other side of the angrily slammed door? It's the best! : )

I got a good one, too. Last night when we were driving home, that Miley Cyrus song, Party in the USA came on. I blasted it as loud as I could and belted it out. Did Cory roll up the windows and tell me to shut up?? Hell, no! He sang right along with me! ;o)

Vapid Vixen said...

Ohhh nooo. So sorry you had one of THOSE days. They really are the worst but it does help keep us humble (like we really need any more help with that?) and remember what amazing people we've chosen to share our lives with.

ruthy ann said...

I have days like that when I'm NOT pregnant too :)

RadiantKristen said...

You and I really are the same. I do that all the time. Poor Ammon and Mike... we really are pretty lucky to have awesome men in our lives!

I'm so glad Mike has got your back! I could never believe the Inspector climate wanted to hang in there with me through the whole Jorge drama...Good lord, I was horrible. And yet, here we are!

How great that you can give props to your husband, while exposing the egg on your face. You are an awesome wife too!

rooth said...

I really appreciate how 'real' you are on your blog - because I totally have those 'punch someone I love in the face' moments and now I don't feel so alone :)

Sara Louise said...

My husband's skin is so thick he like has Rhino skin. Thankfully too because I've been known to flip out a time or too. Sometimes one just has to flip the F out.
I always love your honesty Alyx :)
