It was a stressful week for me to begin with, so, of course…
Duh duh…duh duh…
Duh duh, duh duh, duh duh, duh duh…
Shark week! Awe man!
For any male subscribers – who are clueless right now, see the urban dictionary at this link if you do not understand: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=shark+week
Doesn’t it always seem like Shark week happens to appear on the worst possible day or time? Just when you ran out of chocolate, just when your husband had to work late and your kids had tons of sugar, just when you have no possible moment to huddle into the fetal position and hide from the crazy that awaits your day. Well, my survival kit is not going to take away all of the emotional roller coaster or the crappy side effects that come along with the visit from aunt flo. However, it will help you to deal with everything a little better and come out of this with your sanity in tact. I consider that a success!
Here’s my go to list of Shark Week Survival Kit Items that I need to make it through the week without hurting people – my family included! Some of these are sugar-free items because I am a THM follower, but if you do not have any dietary or allergy restrictions, do what you have to do – your sisters understand and pass no judgement!
