A letter

Jul 30, 2005

Dear Mother Nature,

I know you’re busy this time of year creating hurricanes and whatnot, but I’d like to issue a complaint.  I’m not sure if you’re aware (or perhaps you clearly are) the ramifications of creating pre menstral symptoms and stress effects that match, ever so closely, the first trimester pregnancy symptoms. Perhaps you don’t mind that women name their next offspring when they are a week late. Is it not a cruel joke?  I am most unhappy with you at the moment and can not believe, in my heart, that you enjoy this one bit. For godssakes, women, you are MOTHER NATURE. You must know the emotional distress you cause fellow mothers when they swear up and down a new baby is forming, when in fact, it is not.

Mrs. Flinger

P.S. While you’re at it, do something about the crows feet and the increasing gravitation pull on boobies over time.


  1. oh FOOEY. :(

    All in good time though… and hey, you just might be thanking mother nature for her infinite wisdom in a few months when LB becomes a biped. (and discovers climbing and running).

    And maybe, just MAYBE, we can be due date twins next time around. wink

  4. Oh Mother Nature, you cruel cruel, bitch. I’ll pop a cap in her ass for ya. *hugs*

  5. PMS has tricked me before. Even where I might think I see a line and there is none. I keep telling myself, I won’t take a test next month, but I always do. Sorry Leslie:0( It’ll happen when it’s suppose to. When it does you’ll know it’s perfect :0)

  6. I hope you are enjoying a nice refreshing glass of alcohol (that doesn’t count towards caffine right?)! That sucks but when you are ready it will come. PMS is a bitch. I really think that Mother Nature is just a man in disguise.

  7. What about my stretch marks, can she fix those while she is at it?
