The most irritating nuisance

It strikes at the most inopportune times:

Smack dab in the middle of a conference call. 

Just before the thrilling climax of a number-one-at-the-box-office movie. 

Right when the waiter brings out my steaming hot fajitas...and I'm starving.

About 15 minutes into a 27 hour road trip from Dallas to Providence. 

And worst of the middle of the night. Interrupting my precious beauty sleep.

The culprit? 

My bladder

I can't explain to you how many times I've been beyond irritated with my hyperactive bladder. It seriously must be the size of a grain of sand. Oh, and the fact that I drink two 32 ounce cups of water (that's just before lunch) probably doesn't make the situation any better. 

I can't help it. I like a lot of fluids. 

I'm known to be the absolute last person you want in your car when heading out on any kind of long distance road trip. When Mr. Ruby and I started our road trip from Dallas to Providence, he learned to accept the fact that we would need to stop... a lot. 

What brings on my annoyance? Because last night, I was woken up by my bladder...Twice! I was so annoyed. 

This nuisance comes and goes. Sometimes, I only go two or three times in a day. Other times, I literally may go every 20 minutes. 

It's just something that I (and poor Mr. Ruby...and every other person that has been around me for any amount of time) just have to live with. 

Lord help us all when I'm pregnant someday.

P.S. Tonight is EARTH HOUR! Make sure to turn off all power for one hour at some point this evening. Let's do everything we can to help mother earth and God's precious creation!!!

Lol. I completely know what you mean, I have an overactive bladder too! I also drink a lot of water and A LOT of coffee.

The other morning I was up early studying for a test and I had about six cups of coffee because I was up at 4:30 am. Well, of course, right in the middle of the test my bladder comes a calling. I tried to hold it but just couldn't anymore and had to be excused from the test to go use the bathroom!

Lesson learned: never drink so many fluids before an important test/event!!

Have a good weekend :-)

Oh my gosh...I completely understand. My bladder is the same way. I seriously go to the bathroom about 10 times a day between 8 and 5 (not including lunch). I just started a new job, and I get up to go the bathroom so often that people look at me funny. Oh well, when you have to go, you have to go.

I feel like I am always going to te bathroom FAR more than any of my co-workers. It's a bit crazy!
