FICO Scoring is Weird

With my score on this site I had a balance increase 2 weeks ago and my score dropped 20 points. The amount of the increase was 20 dollars on 2 accts. Today I got another alert that my score went up 20 points and this time it's another balance increase on 2 accts - $40 on each acct. This makes absolutely no sense to me whatsoever. 2 very small balance increases drop my score. 2 very small additional balance increases raise it back up? Whatever mojo Fico uses in these calculations is just plain weird.
