Estrogen Meltdown.

Downstairs right now are Partner, her sister, and her sister's new girlfriend. I am upstairs, trying to regain control of myself.

Ten minutes before they arrived, I had a melt down, crying over my Szechwan style noodles. Today we are having a Chinese New Year family party. I've made spring rolls, Lion's Head meatballs, the noodles mentioned above, General Tsao's chicken, potstickers, and (whew) coconut ice cream. I made all of it, except the potstickers, which I bought frozen at the grocery.

I thought I was having just my family here around 3:30 or 4:00. But one brother and one brother-fiance work until 5:00, so the day got later, until Partner's sister asked if she could come at 2:00 since she has a hockey game. This, as you can imagine, throws off the cooking schedule just a little. Grr.

And then at 1:30, I officially started an estrogen meltdown. I got into the shower sobbing. I got out of the shower sobbing. And now I need to go downstairs and entertain.

Pray for me. Hard. Because the hormones are officially raging.

Oh I'm so sorry. Hang in there. The food sounds great though.

Hoo boy, with the cooking mercy. Any time in my life I've cooked like THAT, looking back...? Whew. And I thought I had it bad with the grading. Wowee.

Yum-yum! It sounds good. You must be exhausted after all that cooking! No wonder you had a meltdown. Take it easy, Katie.
