Not What I Was Hoping For

July 22, 2011

I am a little bit late,  but that’s okay.  Good, actually.

I park, go inside, and go straight to the correct isle.  I know where it is by now.

They are out of the cheap ones.

I grab the value pack, check out, and then head home, making a stop at the library first.

There’s no rush.  I want to see the results, but then again, I don’t.  I’ve been through this many times before.

Once home, I get everything ready and aim for the cup.  It nearly overflows.

I carefully lift it up to place it on the counter and spill urine all over my jeans.

And my underwear.  And the floor.

And then I look down and notice I have started my period.

Not the result I was hoping for.

    Yeah, it always sounds fun until the time comes. And then it’s late, and we are tired, and we are like, again? We manage to pull through 🙂

    Trying is such an emotional roller coaster. Gives us even more of a reason to hate our period.
