this will make you snort laugh...okay maybe

or maybe it will make you unsubscribe to my blog.
i don't know.
either way i HAD to write this down and document it.
(if you are one of those very impressionable young girls from my church that i teach on sunday's, please back away from the computer turn off your screen, ask your parents to turn on some nice church music, oh and i'll see you on sunday! :))
okay.
i was having one of those days, you know the kind that comes once a month add on a headache, a bag of choc chips later and some really mind blowing moments that you think to yourself "i can't believe this person has a job trying to help me AND GETTING PAID, when he doesn't even understand what he's saying himself." on the phone with the bank that ate up my other bank when they filed for bankruptcy because they were idiots. yeah YOU guys. how infuriating can you get? and please don't put me on the phone with some guy in who knows what country (no offense) who learned my language as a second language trying to fix a problem with my mortgage in "mortgage language" that i don't even understand in my own language. *DEEP BREATH*
please.
PLEASE.
just don't
see, that time of the month.

anywho, i digress.
during this time katie gets to enjoy a little more tv watching time, seeing that i'm a raging hormonal roller coaster, currently on the verge of tears because i just ate, yet again, frosting from the container.

as it also goes, always during this time of the month, i feel like the things i've put upon myself are too much and i don't know where to begin, i bring it all out, make a mess, and i walk around picking up and putting down half way worked on projects, start something only to remember that i have something else that needs attention only to go back to the first thing... you get what i'm putting down.
mess.ed.up.


anyways she's watching this episode

of ni hao ki lan in the back ground of my "i don't know the meaning of my life" moment...and i hear part of the show, i start to pay attention a little more and yup... "snow" in ni hao ki lan land sounds a lot like "oh swear word" if you get what i mean.
but also the way they use it in the sentences. i couldn't just let it go.

i sat there staring at the tv mouth gaping wide open.
no.way.
and then it started "heh...heh..hmmm.haha...HA! BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! uncontrollable laughter, the kind that makes you almost pee your pants, well, unless you've had 4+ kids like myself then it actually does make you pee your pants kind of laughter. i paused it, wiped away the tears, sighed and re-wound it.
maybe it's not as funny the second....NOPE STILL HILARIOUS!!!!!
katie laughed pretty hard too. not knowing why her mom was rolling on the floor looking like she was having a nervous breakdown, i guess she figured she might as well enjoy the "mommy you so crazy and funny moment"
i had to call my neighbor (the one with 6 kids) she found it mildly funny, somewhat disturbing that i would waste my time in calling and making her listen to it over the phone.
and then i realized there's a whole section in utube dedicated to this one episode. this one is one of my favorite reactions

it.made.my.day.
and i rewound it and recorded it so i could show mr v and co when he comes home from work.

good times.

oh and when i say "that time of the month" i'm not talking about my period. i'm talking about the insane period that comes the week right before the actual "time of the month".
yeah, that.
anyone else like that?
my husband would really like to know.

ps:i have updates on where the gingerman has been, and on box tops. all i have to say for now is that you guys are awesome! ;)
we'll talk soon.

Oh I think your my new best friend! That is hilarious, and I totally feel for you, what a rotten week.

Anonymous said...

Loved it - my 17 yr. old son and I laughed until we cried! It's good to learn a second language snicker.
Merry Christmas,
Melanie

Quilt Nut said...

Angela said...

This is by far the best post I have read! Or maybe it is just that I am still up a 3 am and a bit sleep deprived. You crack me up! My kids LOVE this show and this episode is the greatest one! Oh... and you are not the only one... I know when Aunt Flo is coming to town a week before she arrives! When she does arrive she is just a pain in my back... literally! Thanks for the laugh V! I think you will actually have new people subscribing to your blog just because of this post!!! Have a wonderful Christmas!

Jodie said...

Oh I needed a good giggle tonight :)

Andi said...

Hilarious.
No go forth and eat chocolate!!!
Andi xx

Sarah said...

Yes I am exactly like this the week before and it drives me nuts that I am!!!! My ADHD (undiagnosed) skyrockets into 5th gear and I walk around like an idiot and may try to clean this house all day and get absolutely nothing accomplished...which drives me insane!

Amy said...

Vanessa...It takes a lot to make me laugh out loud, but dude, that did it! It really did....

why not sew? said...

That's funny, the little purple rhino seemed to think so too!
Yep the week before=total insanity and the crazy thing is, you know it and can't help it. Seems like the older I get the worse IT gets.

PJ@nmyfreetime.blogspot.com said...

:) lol!...
...and you are NOT alone... one week before I will yell at anyone and everyone and then in the same breath cry uncontrollably!
It is a common bond we all share!
Many Blessings!

Katie B. said...

Oh, goodness. I was watching this and my 2-year-old climbed up on my lap, and of course he started repeating this new word!! Oops. When his day care teacher asks me
about it, I'll say, "It means snow! I promise!"

nsmerkt said...

I laughed my tail off when I watched that too! I can relate on many levels. Take care and thanks for the giggle!

Dawn said...

Thanks for the laugh this morning-I almost spit out my coffee when it said lulu's got her basket full of ......... Sorry it's your tough time of the month, my husband will call yours to say I'm the same and maybe they should both just get out of the house :)

mary said...

am so glad you posted this..made my day for sure!
As far as your hormonal problem-wait til you hit your 40's-I've been living in a constant state of PMS turmoil for the past 10 months-24/7 and toss hot flashes in on top of everything-I am just a joy to behold! Of course my Dr. says at 41 I am far too young to be entering menopause-I think it is time for a new Dr.
Love your blog-keep the giggles coming!

Sarah said...

OMG...that is hysterical!!!!!!

rachel griffith said...

hey ummm jake...
this is why me & vanessa are on the phone alot.
vanessa & i do this at the same stinkin' time every stinkin' month.
and yes...you & shane are toughin' it out at the same time too, my friend.

myflsun said...

Okay, now that I've wiped away the tears, I'll attempt to type. Too funny!
And no, you're not the only one with those weeks. I'm right there with you this week, too. Blech!

Kathy

~linds said...

This had me rolling on the floor laughing. Thank you.

And yes, I am totally like that the week before. Darn hormones.

The P*dunc's said...

I call my pms pppms...pre-present-post! You are totally validated in eating chocolate AND frosting.

That clip is great! We went through a accidental swear phase with my son who had a speech problem. He was obsessed with trucks.....you get the picture. It was quite embarrassing then, but oh, so funny now!

Hope you have a great Christmas! Thanks for the laugh!

SewLindAnn said...

Thanks for the morning laugh, can't wait for my son to wake up and hear it (17).

Tricia said...

Oh this post made me lol just thinking about how similar my feelings are that week before. Actually for me it's usually one solid day, about 5-7 days before my period. I am insane! I don't want to be near or around anyone! I don't want to do anything, and everything either has me on the verge of tears of screams. Ugh! Oh yeah, and it surprises me EVERY MONTH! Seriously. Every month it takes me about 2 hrs. of misery to figure it out. Then I take a boatload of pamprin and it takes 22 more hours to feel human again.

Wow! It's not even that time, and just talking about it makes me feel stressed. haha. I think I need some NiHao funniness!

Merry Christmas Christensons!

XO*Tricia

Melysa said...

Thanks for the laugh! I think you just described the past 3 days for me... because.I.am.the.same.way. My poor hubby got yelled at for the Christmas present he bought me.

Yep, feel REALLY bad. Because IT.IS.AWESOME!

"Oh swear word" hormones.

Frippery said...

Too snorting funny! I can't wait to show hubs and my kids. They just might S@&* or snow. Having grown children I have never seen this. Speaking of that time of month, it has been a year and I thought I was all finished and doing the happy dance. Guess what? Suprise, it wasn't Christmas making me crazy, apparently I am not completely "changed". I might have to say "snow".

Mindy said...

Oh my... oh heheheh a basketful of.... cover this with.... ohooohoo. :D

I asked Brandon what he would say to your husband about that time of month... he says to say exactly, except it's more like 3 weeks instead of one. ;)

Yes, I'm very much a mess.

Jenn said...

That is hilarious. Thanks for the laugh!

Jennifer D said...

wow, I haven't watched the clip yet but I am on my way. I feel just like you the week before my Period, but add in a big hunk of meanness. I seem to need to bring up everything that bugs me about my hubby! Poor guy.

Erica said...

Great to hear I am not a freak of nature... I am actually relieved when Aunt Flo shows up b/c I know I will soon begin to feel like a person.

Great clip... thanks for the laugh!

Needled Mom said...

I am well past that stage in my life and it was still hysterical. What are children learn!!!!!

Angie said...

pretty d%$# funny, and I have that day every month as well. You are not alone.

Tutu said...

That made my morning! Thank you!

And no, you are not the only one who gets those week before blues. I get grouchy, weepy, overwhelmed, I could go on and on.

MiaZagora said...

Tell your husband that you aren't the only one...and it could have been worse...much, much worse! ;)

Mauri said...

That was too funny! I started cracking up and I'm still laughing just thinking about it. I'll have to make sure my daughter never sees that episode or she'll be walking around saying "a basket full of ..." all day long! I hope you feel better. Husbands just don't understand what we women go through. Just tell him to stay out of the way if he doesn't want to get hurt. :)

Marie said...

HAHA, very funny!! So, whats your plan on New Years Eve?

Keriann said...

I have tears rolling down my face so bad I can hardly read the screen! I am so much like that it's insane! I mean right down to uncontrollable laughter, peed pants (thanks to child baring), half down EVERYTHING around the house and a child who thinks I'm nuts! (thankfully the youngest is to young to notice right now)

And I can't forget to mention that most anyone who knows me tries to either steer clear or come clean my house because unlike your reader Sarah I AM DIAGNOSED (and medicated) ADD and during "that time of the month" Ritalin is USELESS!!!! (nothing can help a PMSing raging hormonal week....well except maybe your best friend and some choco chips!)

So after all this rambling the bottom line is....I TOTALLY GET IT!!

Keriann said...

ok I meant "half done" not "half down" =)

see, told you i was laughing too hard to see the screen!

Vintage Dutch Girl said...

That was HILARIOUS! "We helped Lulu cover the whole hill with #$@*!" :)

And the hormones? TOTALLY get it. Having weaned my 12 month old a few weeks ago, I am on a MAJOR hormone roller coaster. Oh the joys....

Jaimie said...

pssshh my hormones are always like that. no just kidding, i totally understand the week before she comes. oh how i feel so mean during that week.

Andrea said...

Oh yeah, the week before THE WEEK is always worse....my hubby sympathizes with yours! :)
Merry Christmas!!

Anonymous said...

The week before is always worse for me!! I think that's why it's called PMS - pre-menstrual syndrome, though honestly I hadn't thought about it before writing it. :) I get to be a lunatic the week before and am so much better when it arrives. TMI I'm sure, glad this is anonymous lol.

I did laugh at the potty-mouthed kids. :) Thanks for the chuckle.

Kim B said...

ROFL! This made my whole worning! LuLu has a basket full of... AHAHAHAHA!

Bobbie said...

that is super funny! I am saving it for my hubby to watch when he gets home

SummersDesigns said...

That is hilarious, now there are probably hundreds of little kids going around saying it, and parents who didn't hear that part of the show going "Where did that come from!"

erin said...

::snort::

Too funny! Thanks for posting!! Now I don't feel all aloe when I crack up about stuff like this!

Wes and Dani said...

Hahahaha! LOVE it. :D And sorry about your bad week--if it makes you feel better, you are actually lucky--I would LOVE for Aunt Flo to ever rear her ugly head. Instead I have a visit from her maybe once a year...and hence, no babies. :( So count your horrible AF blessings. ;)

(And save me some chocolate chips!)

jona said...

That's flippin' hilarious coming from her sweet little voice! All I can think is "don't eat brown snow"!

a girl in a gorilla suit said...

too funny. made me laugh out loud and i, too, watched it more then once...had to mute it when the kids walked in though! haha


merry Christmas.

Deanna said...

Yes its totally normal and funny cause I had one of those days yesterday too, we must be in sync. :) You can tell your hubby, yes its always the week before the actual time that is the hormonal time. So fun being a woman! And yes after kids, peeing your pants when you do anything, cough, sneeze, jump on a trampoline, laugh, etc...

Sandy said...

Oh, Vanessa. I haven't checked your blog lately, and oh how I have missed it. That was AWESOME - seriously - awesome!

Blue Is Bleu said...

I didn't even have to watch the clip (I'm Chinese)... I started laughing the second I read the word snow because I knew what was coming LOL! Never thought of it that way but it sure does sound like something hehe

And yes, my husband steers clear of me the week before. I go ballistic, he looks at the calendar, nods, and stays away. Poor sod.

Charity said...

Phaha! My 3 year old speaks Russian and is picking up Chinese from Ni-hao Kai Lan. Every time she says "it" My husband thinks she is swearing!! I so knew what episode you were talking about! Gotta love the language barrier humor.

Julie Isa said...

Oh that's funny! Thanks I needed the laugh this morning. Oh...tell your husband that he's in good company my poor family has to deal with my uncontrolable fits once a month too and our oldest daughter's until she left for college. now her roommates get to deal with her :) merry christmas!

Anonymous said...

Okay, I love your blog, admire your creativity, and have cried over a few of your sweet posts, but have never commented till now. This has been a hard season and that is the first time I have laughed that hard in a while. I can't stop watching and laughing. Sometimes immaturity is a beautiful thing!
Tina

happy zombie said...

OH MY SHEEET!!!!!!!!!!!!! Talk about PF Chang'n my pants!!!

Shepherd Family ACAL said...

OH my! I am laughing so hard! I love your favorite response that was even funnier! OH, I can't wait to show my husband, and I am thankful my kids haven't seen that one because my Daughter LOVE to repeat the words they teach! OH my! Going to watch that again! (PS. My son was looking at me like I was crazy when I was watching that laughing so hard!)

Bridget said...

This is one time I am actually glad my kids don't have real t.v.! I don't get as much done but I don't have to worry about chinese snow- too funny.

My husband says I have one good week a month and three bad ones. I'm okay with that though... I like chocolate ;).

Sare said...

That's hilarious!

Tracey said...

I lived in Taiwan for a year, and learned some Chinese. As soon as you said the episode was about snow, I knew what was coming! So funny to listen to it over and over!

girlsmama said...

Oh my I laughed. A lot. Maybe peed a little too. :)

Did you get Miss Jen's email?

Becky said...

Vanesa! Gonna have to put you in time-out! ;) That was "oh another swear word"ing hilarious!!! Hubby Bill even chuckled.

For me "pre-week" got worse as I got older. Peri-menopause lasted 10 years and now (knock on wood) I think I am done. Whew!

I am completely with you on the peeing of the pants too. "oh swear word" to be sure when I sneeze, cough, laugh too hard, lift heavy stuff, breathe, sleep.....

Okay, I can usually sleep and breathe w/o peeing. Feel better and put your feet up busy woman!

Kara@ Creations by Kara said...

Oh my goodness, that was hilarious! I still have tears running down my face. Thanks for the great laugh, I needed it!! :)

Oh, and my time before "the time of the month" is always worse. You are definitely not alone.

as a female, i sympathise with what u're going thru. but as long as it's ok that everyone laughs and blogs abt blonde, white pp n blogger jokes, namely, ur demography, then i suppose ur post is harmless gd fun :)

The McIntyre Family said...

I was watching this episode with my daughter a few weeks ago and when she said "snow" for the first time I had to listen again just to make sure I heard her correctly. My husband was in the other room and I had to ask him if he heard what she said and he said yes it sounds like she said S*** of couse spelling it out. I said ok just had to make sure it wasn't me and had to have a good laugh about it also!!!

Anonymous said...

I'm so glad to know that I'm not alone. Yeah, my 'week before' is horrible... and I walk around pulling projects out but never even start on anything.

At least we know we aren't crazy! :(

Rachel Carlson said...

OH MY GOODNESS, this is some good S*** - hee, hee, hee. and oops, peed my pants a little too. i needed this one tonight v, as always thank YOU!

Nancy @ Live love laugh said...

Too hilarious...same deal here -the week before-murder...and without chocolate, I might just do that! 3 kids-yeah-again same problem-can't laugh or sneeze either!
Is it bad I sent it to my college boy? No-he will roll on the floor, too.
Thanks for the laugh!
~Nancy

Maureen said...

That is hysterical. Love it. Yes, Vanessa, I am a total loon right before my period. Don't know why and it hasn't always been this way. But my husband knows. Tell your hubby he's not alone.

Robin said...

You were right- I snorted. Hilarious- thanks for sharing:)

amylouwho said...

Hi.LAR.IOUS!! Thanks for sharing!

I get crazy the week before too. you are not alone!

Lacie @ Creative Attempts said...

so i am sitting on the couch watching random junk tv and checkin in with my favorite bloggers and then you hit me with this brilliant magic. I even made my husband pause the tv off for a sec so he could hear it. We both have been cracking up. and as for that monthly "gift"...I am a mess the week before and the week of so yeay every two weeks I feel crazy isn't that fun?!

Julie said...

I did think you were insane but it's hard to get the full effect over the phone. I'll admit after having seen it it is very funny and it even made Aaron giggle ...it was a manly giggle of course.

Sally said...

Yep, hilarious!!!

Sally said...

BTW, wish I could see YOUR reaction on you tube! :)

I miss hearing your laugh!

abucketofsunshine said...

don't feel bad, I think I may have almost peed a lil there too...hilarious and much needed! thanks for making us laugh! merry merry!

Christine C. said...

Oh my GOD! I'm SOOooo immature!!! I can't get enough of this... never gets old! I love reading your blog, you are so funny! Thanks for my daily smiles... and inspiring me to get my craft on! Have a GREAT Christmas!

Christine

Becky @ Our Sweet Peas said...

I have tears in my eyes I am laughing SO hard right now, thanks! I must tweet this so that others can laugh at this crazy time of year.

As far as the week before ahem, yeah I am feeling your pain!

Tanya said...

oh my gosh we watched the episode last year! i thought the exact same thing! i love the reaction on youtube. so funny!

Sarah said...

I have tears running down my face right now! I'm so emailing this to my mom! haha.

Amy said...

This is hilarious!
And yes, my husband can attest to the fact that I turn into a different person the week before my period, seriously. Sometimes i am super embarrassed at the way that I act and I have to apologize to my whole family.

Thanks for making me laugh!
Merry Christmas!

Crafty Mama said...

Oh my gosh, what a crack up! That video was hilarious!
And you can tell your husband that my husband sympathizes with him, and no, he is not alone with his woman going a little crazy a week before "that time of the month"
I think I scare my family into hiding at least 2 days a month;-)
LOL

Danielle said...

You are too much, and I love it! And you have proof that you are definitely not the only one with the week before the week "crazies"... tell your hubby to smile and nod, if he knows what's best!

p.s. my word verification is heisty... rhymes with feisty. coincidence? I think not.

LeAnn said...

I never thought I was that bad as far as PMS goes but this past week when I had to break the news to DH that AF came again, he said "yea, I figured." What the heck is he thinking?! What kind of heartless jerk would be so stupid as to say such a mean thing like that!?!?!

I guess he was wise to say it from across the room... and after I put down the scissors.

Have a happy period!
(hurry, hide the scissors)

Tauni said...

Tee hee. I giggled out loud reading your post. Not only was the cartoon funny, but I can sooo identify with the craziness that takes over each month. I call it having a "come apart," because it seems like everything is falling apart around me. Dramatic, ehh?

burg3g said...

I just peed my pants. I'm pretty sure Chris peed his too.

me said...

i'm so glad another mom saw that!

i was busy sewing something and having a week like yours and then heard my 4 year old daughter repeating "snow" in chinese, and my mouth dropped to the floor. then i looked at the tv and realized she was "speaking another language".
but now, when my language gets "colorful" i can always tell people that i'm just speaking chinese.
thank you ki lan.

leonie said...

I am so that person at that time of month. And I thought I was all alone!!

AdronsCatherine said...

Oh. My. Gosh!!!!

I forgot what the title of your post was, right up to the point where I'm watching the video, laughing so hard I have tears streaming down my face, and next thing you know, I'm snorting! My poor hubby couldn't figure out what was wrong with me, so he paused whatever Food Network show he was watching, and listened to the video. We were both rolling!!!

Thank you so much for sharing that - it's priceless!

Deanne said...

*insert giggles* cause i actually watched this this morning with my little one and couldnt stop laughing lol x

Sarah @ Thrifty Decor Chick said...

OMG You don't know how much I needed this right this second. Freaking hilarious.

Jessica Munk said...

You are hilarious! That is so funny. I have been having more of those I am melting down moments and something else happens that just makes me crack up. I love those moments!

Gay Vaughan said...

Okay, so I am late catching up on my blog reading...but this had me rolling! Too funny and made my night since we are losers and are home on New Year Eve with no place to go. (totally by choice)
