I confess:
  • I am SUPER

  • I might be a little too excited about my very first blog award.
  • Best thing that happened this week.
  • The mall and I have broken up.
  • I can't go there without getting the "All those are yours" comments.
  • One day I tell you things are going to get nasty!
  • I might be having some serious withdrawals.
  • I miss my iphone more than I should. I mean I really miss it!!
  • I think my three year old is trying to kill me.
  • Really I do, that kid is soooo hard.
  • She is about to drive me to the edge.
  • I might jump off.
  • Anyone want to come with me?
  • I wonder what is on the other side....

So to share the love...
I just love her. She always leaves the best comments. I feel like she totally gets me and I love her blog. She is just real, you know? I love people that just tell it how it is not how they wish it was.
2. Lisa
I love her blog. She has this way of always being inspiring. Like even when her day is going badly she always has this way of writing about it without making you feel down. I love that.
Beth is always making the cutest things. Sometimes I feel like a lazy bum when I read her blog but one day I'll make some of her cute things!
Ok, this one I don't even have to explain. Just visit her blog!!
I think we are so the same that it makes me feel normal to read her blog. I love that she is who she is and let us all know a little bit about her. It really love reading her posts.
She is my new bowling buddy. Do I even need to say more?? Her blog is so cute and I love taking a look into her life.
She is a way sweet lady that always leaves the nicest comments. I love her blog, she makes us all feel loved and normal.
Lets just say one day I would love to sit in her craft room or her kitchen table and chat.
Ok if you want something totally cute visit her blog. She is always doing the cutest things that she shares with us less creative folks.
Oh the adventures that we would have if we lived closer. I love reading her blog and how she hates being home so they go and do fun things. I hate being home too my friend.
Anytime you need a giggle head on over. Her take on life makes me smile. The pictures she uses are the bestest!!
She deserves a little sunshine in her life. I love how she types just like you were sitting in her living room having a nice little chat. I almost feel like I should talk back.

If I missed you this time. I still love you, I hope you still love me too!

I went to a wonderful class tonight about taking better care of our bodies. How this body is the only one that you get and that there is so much bad stuff around that we are putting into it. It was a good class and I look forward to learning more about that.
It was especially interesting because I have been thinking about this lately. I started out thinking about how some people are fun and how some people aren't. You know what I mean?? Some people make everything more enjoyable and there are those others that you cringe a little when you find out they are coming. They are downers. I hope I am not a downer.
There are some people that make you feel bigger and better and like you can do anything. I think we all have those friends. You know like when you say, "I worked really hard today and ran 2 miles." Person #1 says, "that is sooo great. You are a super star. Sometime I want to come with you but you might leave me in your dust!!" Person#2 says, "you can do more, I have to still run my 1000 miles this afternoon. How fast did you run, are you sure it was that far? Is it everyday or just one?" We all know those people.
I think as women we are born with a lower self esteem then men. Like we come out thinking that we aren't super, let's all be real most men think they are super. Anyho, point coming sometime..... While I was run/jogging today I made a decision. I am done with the downers. Those people that make you feel like less when you leave them. People that make you feel like nothing is good enough and depressed. I am trading them in for people that make me feel smart and loved and like I can conquer the world. I know I some people you can't get away from. Some are in your church or your neighborhood or even your family. Still I hope you join me in limiting the interaction you have to have with those people. We all deserve more.

Yep, I did. I might do it again too. You see I was all ready to go to this fantastic place today. I have been working on getting the kids outfits so I could takes some cute pictures of them all week. I can't tell you how many stores I went to. I even drove to another city to try and find something that #1 would like. We shopped for hours and hours. I have been wanting to go to these gardens for three years but I have never made it during this special spring event. Not once. Every year I mourn that I have missed and it promise that next year nothing will get in my way.
Ready for the bad part. So I asked the husband to come and help me with the kids so I could take some really cute pictures of each of them alone. He said ok, Friday. Well Thursday he called me and said nope he couldn't do it on Friday and by the way he would be gone all day on Saturday. WHAT!! Ok, deep breath. So he said Monday would work. I planned on Monday. I had a few errands to run and I got the kids clothes all out and told him what else I needed for the day. I left and came home to hungry kids a husband that hadn't eaten lunch and nobody was ready to go. Really!! This is something I have been planning for a week. Well, really three years. Guess what he was doing.... playing the Wii.
I gave up and I am here typing this instead of taking pictures of my dreams in a beautiful place. Really I could just sit here and cry all night.

This better make me feel better!

Are you ready??
  • My newest best idea is a commune.
  • Yes don't you think that sounds great??
  • Everyone working together to get things done.
  • Everyone sharing and loving and all.
  • I should have been born earlier.
  • When it is just #4, the husband, and me I feel like I should leave.
  • They are the bestest friends ever and I kinda always feel like the third wheel.
  • Is that wrong? I do love her, I just am pretty sure she connects with him more.
  • I think most people are dumb.
  • Still loving me....
  • Really I think that most people are super high strung about stupid things and I find it annoying.
  • I am not much of a feelings person so I am pretty sure at some point I will hurt yours.
  • The husband was mentioning to me today that I might be a bit to blunt.
  • If you don't want blunt then don't act stupid.
  • I think the allergy medicine that is keeping me alive is making me grumpy.
  • Maybe that or my period, or the stomach flu, or the crazy zoo that lives here with me.
  • I need a vacation.
  • Bowling anyone???

For Sadness

Ok first a little vent. This lady at church, (she doesn't read this), asked me how I was. Wait for it.... I was answering her and she turned around and walked away. Loving that one. I mean really did you not hear me talking or you just don't care about being rude, even to little ole me??
I am a total people watcher. If you see me staring at you, I really probably am. I'm soaking you in with all your glory. I was watching someone the other day. They were all smiles and laughter. Now mind you that this is someone that I don't really love. They get under my skin like none other. However, as I was watching her I saw such deep sadness in her eyes. Made me feel a little bit bad about not liking her.
See I am a super person. I bet you wish we were friends.

I confess:
  • Not that kind of late!! Ha that was fun.
  • I lost my iphone at IKEA.
  • Yep I looked everywhere. The tracker says it is still there.
  • But now it has gone to sleep so maybe it isn't there anymore.
  • Maybe someone nice will find it and bring it home....
  • I think facebook sucks.
  • I'll give you a moment to recover.
  • Ok, I think it is just another way to make you feel stupid.
  • You know like when you check your blog and nobody commented on your post??
  • That happen to anyone but me...
  • Or you visit a blog and they have a million followers and you have 3.
  • I still love those 3 but makes you wonder about yourself??
  • Sooo I'm done posting on facebook.
  • If you post you lost your much loved iphone and your "friends" all ignore you,
  • Yep, not even one ,"Oh, I am so sorry I'm on my way over with icecream."
  • Not that I can eat icecream, but the gesture would have been nice.
  • I'm done with things that make you feel yucky and unloved.
  • Good thing I have my commenters on the Friday Confessionals!!
  • I hope this coming week is less eventful.
  • Guess I could have lost one of the kids.
  • That would have been worse.
  • Maybe.

I'm naughty.


I confess...

  • So I lost it a couple of week ago at a lady at the store.
  • She was the second person in a week to ask if all my kids were mine.
  • The first one was the standard, "Do you run a daycare?"
  • Gets under my skin!!
  • I responded, "Nope, I just called around and rounded up all the kids I could that were under seven so I could take them out to dinner by myself."
  • She just stared at me.
  • I should have paid more attention.
  • Then I could go back and say how sorry I was for yelling at her.
  • But really, why do people say stupid things!!
  • I am a whiner and I hate whiners.
  • Funny isn't it.
  • I think everyone else should get a grip.
  • See I don't think the world is out there to help me.
  • Aren't I a ray of sunshine?
  • I need something sweet.
  • I hear thunder.
  • Now I am smiling.
  • Mood swings anyone?
