True Confessions Tuesday - Cause We Just Got To Confess Sometimes

Done anything this week that you're not exactly proud of?  Maybe you've done something you're totally proud of, but haven't told anyone?  Is there something that has been boiling in your head, and you're ready to get it off of your chest?  Well, then Today Is Your Day!! 

It's True Confessions Tuesday.  Confess all for the world to see...

I confess that I feel kind of guilty using the Shrinking Jeans True Confessions logo, because I haven't checked in with them in weeks.  Since giving up on the last challenge, I've been feeling a little guilty about showing my face around there....that's stupid - because I know they forgive me.  A lot of it has to do with time - but I plan on showing my face around there soon.

I confess that last week I didn't eat very well.  It was the freakin' snacking.  Breakfasts were good.  Lunches were good.  Dinners were great.  Then, I got the munchies almost every evening - and that was NOT GOOD.

I confess that I haven't started running, yet.  I've been doing a little walking - but nothing I would categorize as "exercise level".  There are no excuses.  The weather has been beautiful, I've been getting off work at a decent time.... my lazy butt just hasn't cooperated. 

I confess that I'm tired of being full of good intentions but no follow through.  I'm working on it.  It's a slow process.

I confess that Pinterest has really sparked my motivation to redo Butter's bedroom.  I want a brand new start for him when he comes home - and so I'm tackling redecorating a room with no money and no resources.  Due to having no money or resources, I'm limited to completely cleaning the room out and rearranging it - in the desperate hope that it will feel new....until there's a little more room in the budget to spruce it up a little.  Dang you Pinterest for filling my head with cute hopes and dreams!!

I confess that my entire house is in serious need of "sprucing and cleaning".  It's about time I dusted off the carpet cleaner, pulled out the trash bags, and give this entire house an overhaul.

I confess that I'm getting the Christmas itch.  I know that we're still months away - but I blame the itch on my sudden desperation to clean my house....and get rid of all the crap that's accumulated over the past year.  Jelly has way too much crap - and at least half of it has to go.  Why do I have to have one of those 3 year olds that plays with EVERYTHING she owns?  It would be so much easier if she didn't play with at least half of it.... but no, she has to play with it all - and drag it all out across the living room floor....which makes me want to throw it all in trash bags.  Is it too early to start using the "Santa won't bring you anything else because you already have too much stuff" bribe?  I'm going to totally kick my own butt if she responds with "that's OK, Mommy, I don't want anything else.  I'm happy with what I've got".  Believe me - that's my child.

I confess that I'm going to have one pretty mad 3 year old in the next couple of months....and she'll have to get over it.

I confess that apparently rain is more effective in getting me out of bed than my alarm clock.  Somehow, hearing the slightest of raindrops brought me out of a dead sleep into full blown panic mode... because all of the windows in the house are open.  Any other day, it takes hitting the snooze button 3 times before I can get up.  Who knew that the slightest of raindrops are more effective than a pounding siren blaring from an alarm clock?  Alarm clocks should totally have raindrop sounds, instead.  It was 3:53am when I looked at the clock.  The sprinkle of rain lasted long enough for me to close 2 windows - and then it stopped.  Apparently, Mother Nature woke up with a sense of humor this morning.  Not funny Mother Nature, not funny!

I confess that as much as I love Gordon Ramsey - my detest for Elyse on Hell's Kitchen has driven me to the verge of never watching another Gordon Ramsey show EVER!!  Hell's Kitchen used to be one of my most favorite of shows.  Now?  Meh.  I'm so tired of watching that horrible, back stabbing, sorry excuse of a woman - that if it wasn't the season finale next week...I wouldn't watch any more.  Oh, and I'm convinced that if that nasty witch makes it into the Top 2, I'll officially be taking Hell's Kitchen off of my DVR list.

I confess that apparently I need some TV anger management.  Last week it was America's Got Talent and this week it's Hell's Kitchen.  Oy!

Lastly, I confess that despite my moaning and groaning - my life is amazing.  If the worst I have to worry about is who's not getting kicked off of a reality show...then all is good with the world.  I have an amazing family, awesome friends, and a spectacular job.  Yeah, so I'm having a hard time losing weight - don't we all?  I know that I will get there... in the end.  Sure, I've got some financial worries, and I'm worried about my child who is in the hospital.... but I know that everything will work out.

Nobody can have a truly perfect life - but I'm pretty darn close, in my opinion.  There has to be some struggles to balance out and make me appreciate the good. 

OK, that's it for me today.  Got something you want to confess?  Then, I'd love to hear about it.  Either write your confession in the comments, or write your own blog post full of them - just make sure you let me know, so I can read them.

Have a great Tuesday, everyone!!

Till next time. ;)
