Friday Confessional


I confess.....that I have a laundry basket at the foot of our bed with our socks and underwear in it.  We "live" out of that basket.  I don't even bother putting it in a drawer.  Never mind bothering to fold it. 

I confess.....that I've given up soda for lent (for the second year in a row).  Which is supposed to be a good thing.  But...







Help me!

Ok, last week Mamarazzi confessed something juicy.  I was also encouraged by a couple people to post something juicy this week because honestly my last few confessions have been bor-ing! 

So here you go.  I can't believe I'm actually going to type this out.  Anyway, 

I confess.....that recently while planning our upcoming road trip with hubby I again mentioned the fact that I'd like to visit all 50 states in my lifetime.  For some reason I may have also expressed that we should....ahem, you a certain something in all 50 states too....ifyouknowwhatimean!

I mean we've already got at least 4 taken care of.  
Oh, and we've got "at sea" covered too.   

Whew, Ok that's enough!

I confess.....that I am not here right now to take your call, but your comment is very important to me.  Please leave a message after the post and I will get back to you as soon as I return.  Or shortly thereafter.

Thank you to Amy for linking my up today!  Please go visit her also and see what she's been up to.

On the Road Again.......

When I was a teen we used to take a lot of road trips back to MA to visit our family.  We'd start off every trip singing "On the Road Again".

Yes, our family is strange. 

Hubby and I are planning a road trip to Florida!  WooHoo!
So if I'm not around much in the next few weeks you'll know why.  Still got a bunch of stuff to do before leaving because I've been procrastinating as usual!!  The past few days have been cold and rainy.  It's so hard to get motivated.  Though you think I would be knowing we're heading to sunny and 80s!

We have some fun stuff planned for our trip so I'm hoping to have some fun stories and pictures to share when we return!

Anybody want a postcard?

Friday Confessional


I confess.....that I am super lazy.  

I do not like getting up at 5:30 to get the kids up for school.  Many times I go back to bed after they leave and if not I lounge around and stay in my pajamas as long as possible.  Until the point my husband says "are you showering today?"

It happens on the weekends too.  I stay in bed way too long.
Then I get mad at myself for not getting up and getting things done.  But I continue to do it.  It's a viscous circle.

I confess.....that I kinda suck at this confessing thing.

Is my life that boring?  Possibly.  Or is it that I'm just not willing to admit the things I should be fessing up to?  Yeah, that too.

Frog Art

While in college I took an art class.  I really have no idea why because I am so not artistic!  I can't draw to save my life!  I'm sure it was just because I needed some credits. 

There was one project I did that I was kind of proud of and always liked.  Recently I've been wondering what happened to it because I haven't seen it since we moved into this house 11 years ago.  I could have sworn I had given it to my mom but she had the few other things out that I had given her.  I was bragging to my kids about how cool it was.

But last week while searching for the childhood toy I was going to use for my project 52 photo I found it!  

The assignment was to find an animal that we could "recreate" with our hand.  We held our hand in the position we wanted and dipped it in wax to make a mold, then filled it with plaster.  After it hardened we painted it to look like our animal. 

Mine kinda looks like a frog, doesn't it?

Friday Confessional


I confess.....that I was going to do a confession last week but when Friday came I just. didn't. feel. like. it.

I confess.....that Peter Facinelli is going to be in Wisconsin and Illinois this weekend for meet and greets and I really, Really, REALLY want to go.  
I am more of a twihard than my kids.

I confess......that I feel embarrassed if someone I know IRL finds out about my blog.  I'm not sure why.  Sometimes people who don't blog or aren't real social online just don't get it.  

When I originally started this blog I had invited all my family to read it.  I'm not sure if any of them even do, but I'm not sure I want to know.  

Sometimes when I post things I wonder "what if my family or friends or my kid's friends read this?"  So sometimes I hold back because of it.

I don't hide the fact that I blog.  I mean anybody could easily find it through facebook or other means, but I also don't advertise it either.

I confess.....that I have another confession I've thought of putting here but am afraid to because "what if my family or friends read this?"  It's not necessarily really bad.  I just don't want it to be taken the wrong way.

Wee Bit of Me

I've been MIA the past week!  Guess I've just been focused on other things, like planning a vacation, carting everyone else's arse around town and trying to stay sane while my daughter learns to drive!

{one} what color is your kitchen?
Green, it's actually called False Cypress.  I seriously just had to go dig the paint sample out to find out the name of the color!

{two} do you have a good luck charm?

Pen.  Usually a purple one!

Wee Bit of Me

{one} do you wear holey jeans? if so, do you buy them that way?
No, but I was just thinking this morning how I needed some new jeans!  I only have 2 decent pairs and I wear 1 a lot more than the other.
{two} do you get a full 8 hours of sleep per night?
No, even if I slept straight through it would only be about 7 during the week.  But I wake up a least once, usually twice a night to pee!  It sucks!

{three} what’s your favorite way to eat an oreo?
I don't eat too many oreos, but I usually take them apart and eat the filling first.  Though that makes for a really dry cookie afterward!  which is why I don't eat many.  I prefer soft, moist cookies.

{four} do you wear shoes in your house?
 Not usually, we kick them off as soon as we come in the door.

{five} who would you call first if you won the lottery?
Hubby and then my mom.  Or vise versa depending on how/when I found out.

{six} have you ever been in a food fight?
Not exactly, one broke out during lunch once when I was in high school and my friends and I ran for the doors!  Wimps!

{seven} do you snore?
I really don't know.  My husband will tell me I do when I complain about his but I think he's just playing around.

{eight} do you know how fast you type?
I'm not sure.  I was tested a long time ago and don't remember.  I'm sure I'm faster now though.  I do remember I did 10,000 keystrokes per minute on the 10 key pad.  I used to use one all the time at work and was able to get super fast.

{nine} can you do a headstand (without using a wall)?
I haven't tried it lately!  LOL  I can't do a full one with my whole body straight up in the air but I used to be able to do the 3 point one where you put your knees on your elbows. Does that count?

{ten} how do you like your popcorn?     
With butter and salt.
