So, I'm checking the calendar to see if I am at the Everybody Hates Me point in my cycle or if, indeed, everybody does hate me. I am at that point in my cycle, but perhaps I've become less loveable as well? It's certainly a viable argument. A new job takes a lot of my available social energy (and even on a good day I don't have that much of it lately) and I suppose I' have retreated so I shouldn't be surprised that I feel a bit cut off. I probably shouldn't have this internal conversation at this particular point in my cycle, but alas, since I am at this point in my cycle, it's unavoidable as I am often included in the "everybody" of the everybody hates me time. The most important observation is that I have not taken my Maca Root for a week or so because I thought it was upsetting my stomach. When I take the Maca Root I do not have EHM days. I think I'm gonna go take some Maca Root.
Missed photo opportunity of the week: a teeny, tiny baby preying mantis sitting on a brick on the railing of our deck. The cutest wee thing was sadly gone by the time I came back with my camera. I don't remember ever seeing a grown mantis in the yard, but I have seen an egg pouch hatch once; scores of even teenier newborns pouring out of that thing. So scary and cute at the same time.
