This One's For The Girls

I received the following via email. Whoever originally wrote this, thank you!

EIGHT WAYS TO KNOW IF YOU HAVE "ESTROGEN ISSUES"

-Everyone around you has an attitude problem.
-You're adding chocolate chips to your cheese omelet.
-The dryer has shrunk every last pair of your jeans.
-Your husband is suddenly agreeing with everything you say.
-You're using your cellular phone to dial up every bumper sticker that says: "How's my driving? Call 1-800-..."
-Everyone's head looks like an invitation to batting practice.
-Everyone seems to have just landed here from outer space.
-The ibuprofen bottle is empty and you bought it yesterday.


TOP TEN THINGS ONLY WOMEN UNDERSTAND

-Cats' facial expressions.
-The need for the same style of shoes in different colors.
-Why bean sprouts aren't just weeds.
-Fat clothes.
-Taking a car trip without trying to beat your best time.
-The difference between beige, ecru, cream, off-white and eggshell.
-Cutting your hair to make it grow.
-Eyelash curlers.
-The inaccuracy of every bathroom scale ever made.
-AND, the NUMBER ONE thing only women understand.....OTHER WOMEN!

I agree with everything here. I especially understand the need for the same style shoe in multiple colors. However, this did back fire on me more than once when I showed up at work with the same style shoe and a different color on each foot.

Amen Sista! Something has be out of wack with me since Madi's birth. I'm only 35 but I get hot flashes and I NEVER used to sweat...till now. At first Andy could barely breathe I would snap at him for everything. I had my hormones checked and everything came back normal, but we know are bodies, am I right ladies?!

I love this. I always know when I have PMS when I am getting on my own nerves.

To answer your comment- nothing makes me happier than moving stuff around. You rediscover things you forgot you had and everything looks so new again. My family jokes to never come to my house and try to sit down in the dark- odds are the chair has moved!

Well, only a girl would probably start singing Martina McBride's song after reading this title! :o}

These are great! Thanks for the laugh.

I've been listening to a lot of the bands Cake & Bread lately--even my music has carbs : (

Something I think only women understand is how after only two comments on my blog I believe I've met my new best friend!

I'm so glad your kitty came home! I know the relief it brings when they decide to grace you with their presence after a couple of nights out on the town. Sadly, I have not seen Willow at all. It's been over a month so I've given up hope. I pray that he's livin' large in a house where he is eating kitty treats out of a crystal goblet.

I've seen this before, and it always makes me laugh!
