PMS, and a better day...

It has been one of those days that has been a blessing. Yesterday was a really hard day for me. I don't have many of those. I have to admit though, PMS got the best of me yesterday. Today I got up, and was feeling only slightly better. I had some errands to run, in downtown Mesa. My first stop was Domestic Bliss. This is one of my favorite stores! It is very pricey, but oh so fun to walk around. While I was there I ran into my cousin Jodie!!! Jodie, is Ashley's Mom. I was SO happy to see her! Sarah was with me shopping. I was so happy that she was able to see Sarah, as a young lady. We visited for about 20 minutes or so. I have to say Ashley, your Mom does not age!!! I hope this is in our genes! :) Then I moved onto a hair/boutique,named Blossom. I was putting some items on the counter. I looked up, and saw Benjamin's teacher Mrs. Blackhurst! She was his 5th grade teacher. This lady was one of my all time favorite teachers. She is one of those people that dresses up every day of the week. Makeup done, nails done, etc. She still looks the same she did 9 years ago! She has now retired, and just got home from serving her second mission, with her husband. It was so fun to catch up with her. I went home feeling much better than when I left. I love the fact that after living in Mesa/Gilbert the most of my life, I am blessed to run into people that have left an impact in my life, or kids life's. I am off to do some laundry. I have mutual tonight. I am thinking it is going to be a hoot! We are going to be doing line dancing!!!! Also there is a dinner with barbecue. I told Jake that he still needs to go, even knowing we will be dancing. He asked me, HOW??? I am in a cast, and on crutches! Hey, I think he will have the best seat in the house. He can sit there, and watch all of the talent going on! :)

Sounds like a fun time running into family and old friends. That is the best! I sure hope you get to feeling better. PMS is the worst time. I get so down on myself at that time of the month. It' s nice to know there are so many other women who understand. :D have fun tonight dancing the night away.

PMS is a drag!! it hits me hard. I think I am a raging snot when I am Pmsing. Good thing it only hits once a month. Although the time sure flies by! Hope you had fun tonight!

My mom totally loved visiting with you! She called me right after she saw you and said "Guess who I just saw!!?"
And I totally agree that she doesn't age, which makes Sweet G's comment about her being "old on the outside" even funnier!
Hope you had fun at mutual, bummer about the PMS.
We'll have to get together when we get back from the beach!

I love downtown Mesa...perhaps because I taught there for five just feels homey, familiar. With a few cute shops. So glad you ran into people you knew for a brightening of your day!

Sorry to hear about your day, Michelle. PMS seriously BITES. I'd tried to figure out a way to boycott it, but I don't have any answers yet. :)

Just found your blog. Love it! I wish I had a Domestic Bliss here. It looks fabulous!!!!

I had a mega PMS day yesterday too. I just retreated to the bedroom because I couldn't even stand to be around myself.

I love running into old friends and familiar faces like that. Is Mrs. Blackhurst have daughters? I am wondering if that is my friend Allison's mom. Anyways, I guess you could have told him if he can drive with a cast he can dance with one. Hee hee.
