Friday Confessional…

Confession time!

If you have something to get off of your chest, click the little girl above and come share.

I confess…

I have a headache, sinus related that I can tell, and  I fear it is the start of a summer cold.  This would just suck because I want to have a relaxing weekend. Chilling does not include filling tissues with a nose full of snot over and over again.

I confess…

I am thoroughly enjoying being a dog owner again.  My daughter’s little darling, Penny, the yorkie, is making for more interesting work days.  I bring her to the office so she isn’t caged during the day and she is enjoying it.  She has toys, a nice mat to lay on, and a pack-n-play if I need to keep her isolated while meetings are going on.  Mostly she wanders the office with her nose on the floor looking for food.  I swear, she is fed!

I confess…

It is a 2 Monster kind of day. As in Monster Energy, Absolutely Zero.  The can that has 2 servings?….I am on the second can now.  Not so much for the energy, but more for my ADD, I am having issues focusing.  12 billion thoughts in my brain and I cannot seem to nail down just one to work on.  This sucks.

I confess…

the secretI decided to start reading The Secret.  I am very intrigued as many are raving about the movie and book, so I am giving it a fair chance to impress me.  If you have read the book or seen the movie, please comment as I’d love to hear other’s opinions.

I confess…

I am now currently reading too many books, if that is even possible:

The Secret – by Rhonda Byrne

Every Woman’s Battle – by  Shannon Ethridge

Black Listed By The PTA – by Lela Davidson

Be A Direct Selling Superstar – by Mary Christensen

A View From The Top – various Avon Senior Executive Unit Leaders (SEULs)

Confession time!

Click the icon above and let it fly!

I confess…

Silly things can really annoy the crap out of me.  Example:  it rained this week and while driving along I noticed this line across the windshield every time the wipers passed by.  There was this tiny, itsy, bitsy twig under the wiper.  Actually more likely a leaf stem.  In no way was it impeding my ability to see, but it was not making for a nice, clean wipe each time.  It bugged the snot out of me and then when I tried to reach out and grab it, it was too far from my hand.  Since it was raining I wasn’t getting out of the car to get it.  Later, when I was on the way home from work, and then yet another day, I noticed it again, having forgotten to get it when I stopped. grrrrrrr…..

I confess…

I’m PMSing.  If it is sugary, sweet, laden with fat and super high in calories…yeah I’m on it and it is SO going in my mouth.  Candy, cookies, dry Captain Crunch cereal….and the ‘edge’ is there but I’m controlling it.  So far, so good. No bodies to bury or hide.  Just need about 10 hours and I’ll be good.

I confess…

I am losing interest in Farmville2 of late.  Just not really caring anymore if my crops are super sized with fertilizer, or if the cows get milked, or chickens fed.  Just do NOT care.

I confess…

I have SO many books to read, not sure where to start.  🙂  It’s like crack for me.  I’m delightfully overwhelmed.

I confess…

I am seriously wanting to crochet.  But it is too warm.  I have 5 projects in various states of completion but just cannot imagine doing them right now.  I’m also wanting to color.  Which means finding a good coloring book and crayons.  But that means a trip to the store.  hmmm….at least that store doesn’t sell food, which is all I can think about right now.  😦

F-R-I-D-A-Y

Can we just let that sink for a moment?

(insert dramatic, silent pause…..)

Last day of the work week for most of us, a day long awaited throughout the hustle, bustle and insanity.

Okay back at it!  It is Friday and that means Aubrey has the confessional open.  Click that innocent looking little girl above to link up and confess your naughtiness from this past week.  Confession is good for the soul, it is said, let it fly.

I confess…

I am exhausted.  Not sure why, just flat out tired.  I think it is the whole getting used to being up earlier. I was starting the wake-up process at 6:15am during the school year, which some days meant crawling from my rack at 7am after multiple uses of the snooze alarm, in order to get Mia on the bus (the 8yo I was watching before and after school).  Now, I am waking up at 5:15am.  My poor, over worked guardian angel isn’t even awake at that hour.  I am pretty safe without her assistance until I walk out of the door, provided I don’t use the stove.  🙂  I am getting into bed around 9:30pm so not sure why I am so sleepy other than adjusting to the new time, and sleeping in a new place.

I confess…

The new place is the boyfriend’s home, the castle of my Knight.  More or less I’m shacking up with him.  🙂  I am very happy, just adjusting to new surroundings.  As this week is ending I’m sleeping solidly having gotten used to noises etc.  In fact I am sleeping better next to him and loving it!  Slowly I will move in all of my “stuff”. I have clothes there and will gradually move in my earthly belongings but no rush.  I have what I need and I have him.  No sense totally shocking the poor guy.  Heck, he already accepted my cat, my niece’s cat and soon my daughter’s Yorkie.  Tell me that isn’t love!

I confess…

The longer I am with this company the better I like my job.  There are days it is mentally taxing and I leave here super fatigued, but I love it.  Those are the days the stereo in the car is cranking out something to help me transition out of the office mentality and into the ME time mind set.  Even with all the road construction and highway traffic issues, I am in a pretty good mood.  Getting upset doesn’t make the cars move any faster, so I just relax and roll with it, singing along with the songs.

I confess…

I really could use a nap right now!  Might have to run out and get a Monster.

Ya’ll have a wonderful Friday!

Friday Confessional – Saturday Style

*Due to a busy day and a fairly pissy mood, I didn’t FEEL like confessing on Friday.  But Aubrey is such a wonderful meme/hop hostess she won’t mind me letting it all fly today.*

I confess… 

Yesterday sucked for the most part.  From the time I rolled out of bed dragging butt tired right up to laying on my bed in the middle of the afternoon sweating buckets from the humidity, it just sucked.  If it could go wrong yesterday, it did.  Until I arrived at my honey’s house, then things improved 200% simply because he is who he is and always makes me laugh.  And he is just hot.  And looking at him and feeling my heart swell up with love for this guy just does wonders.

I confess…

If looks could kill, the boss and a slew of others I bumped into yesterday would be in the early stages of decomp at the moment.

I confess… 

I sleep better when I’m with him.  No clue why other than I just do.

I confess… 

There will never be enough time in my life to read all of the books I’ve added to my Kindle….but I keep adding them anyway.

I confess…

I just polished off a great bowl of oatmeal and if it weren’t for the fact that I’m finally losing my muffin top, I’d go for another.  Ah, self control.

I confess…

I’m about to go finish reading a really good book that is eating at me to see how it ends. Unintended Consequences, a freebie on Kindle a while back, has been really good!

WOOHOO!!!!

It is F-R-I-D-A-Y baby!!!!

Confession, it is said, is good for the soul, so let’s get started!

I confess…

I am just about dancing on the ceiling!  Okay so I know it is likely water weight but when the numbers on the scale begin to DECREASE I get happy and very very motivated.  3 pounds down this morning and that is making all this water (I could seriously row to work) worth it.  And giving up my wine for flavored water, and measuring everything that is going into my mouth.  Next step is to add in walking.  I WILL beat my mom, sister, and sis-in-law in Biggest Loser score.

I confess…

Tonight it will be hard to be good.  Train ride, dinner, all with a dear friend and my kids and their SO’s.  But I WILL make an effort.  It is the start of ‘pre-partying’ or ‘tailgating’ for my 50th next Friday.  By good I do mean watching what I eat and drink.  I mean it, I have every intention of being very careful.  And grandma used to say the road to hell is paved with good intentions.  I’m screwed.

I confess…

That wine glass from yesterday’s post?  I should have stayed off of that website.  SO many amazing ones to chose from.

I confess…

When I was out with my friend last Saturday, the topic of Internet dating came up as that is how we originally met.  I got to strolling down memory lane, wondering what fodder was there for my novels in the making.  I have to say that it was fun, meeting so many men and enjoying conversation.  But there were a few horror stories in there as well.  It could make for a great book in and of itself if not a few chapters.  So, for shits and giggles, I checked to see if my profiles were still there, and they were inactive but accessible, so I activated them.  Holy Mother Of Freak Parades, into my mailbox came the full blown marching band.  Thankfully I’m able, due to past experiences, to weed through the clowns and ring masters to find the truly REAL and nice guys on these sites.  They are few and far between.  NO I am not looking to date, was just curious, and yes I know all about the cat and curiosity.

I confess…

I am about to go devour a wonderful salad with tuna and fresh avocado on it.  Avocado is a new thing for me, and while I’m still acquiring a taste for it, I’ll admit it ain’t bad!

Friday Confessional

Ah yes, once again time to go behind the curtain, into the confessional and reveal the things others may not know, or perhaps after I bare it all they’ll wish they did not!

Okay let’s get this rolling!

I  confess… 
I’m now hooked on yet another show.  Nashville got my attention and I’m watching it too.  Oh and American Horror Story, but not sure how long I’ll stick to that one, it is pushing the boundry lines for me as far as creepy goes.  But once I’m finished with bible study in the evenings, and it is too dark and cold to be outside now, I like to watch something while working on blankets.  My list of entertainment is growing for those nights when I want to stay in!

I confess… 
I might go back to school.  I love learning new things and as I have time it would be beneficial to add to what I can do!

I confess… 
I added a stat counter to my blog.  It isn’t visible to the public, but tracks a lot of great information on those who visit my blog.  I love it.

I  confess… 
I have been working on a few posts of late just not sure I will publish them.  Might have to make those password protected so my select audience can see them.

I confess… 
That quote really rings true for me.  My journey is about to grow, as there are many chances I am getting ready to take.  🙂  More on that at another time.

 

NOTE:  revision made, a section removed, per IP addresses in reports I believe the intended audience viewed it so no longer needed in this post.

YEAH! It is FRIDAY baby!  Time for some confessions.  I found this meme/hop sometime back but hadn’t remembered to get in it. I’m jumping into the confessional today, pulling the curtain and letting it out.

I confess….

  • While I am not a ‘working’ girl so to speak, as I do not leave home and head to the office because my office is at home and I’m my own boss, I am so very glad it is FRIDAY!  I love the Friday night line up of TV shows right now and cannot wait to hit the couch with my crochet hook and a beer.
  • I recently took on of those DISC personality tests.  I’ve actually taken it a number of times in various formats but never really gave it any attention other than to know my personality type involved ‘D’ and ‘I’.  YOWZERS!  I finally really took time to read the 30+ page report that came with mine and holy personality Batman!  I’m and “ID”!!!  Seems I AM that fluffy puppy loving to be recognized for my efforts, to have FUN FUN FUN at anything I do, I’m influential etc.  If you haven’t taken one, do this one online it’s free.  It’s amazing what you learn about yourself, your communication style etc. OH and I’m also a ‘D’, highest on the ‘I’ and seconded with a high ‘D’..making me like a Doberman, and that is very true, if you tick me off.   “The bark is almost as bad as the bite” – I resemble that remark!
  • I have not been drinking enough water lately.  Not good I know.  Need to get back into that.
  • My name is Marti, and I am a FarmVille2 addict.  OMG what was I thinking in getting started with that?????
  • I miss my claws…my acrylic nails.  I just cannot afford them right now and it is killing me!  It is one of the many things I love to do for ME that makes me feel feminine.
  • I haven’t been as good as I should be about updating my spiritual journey blog 😦  I need to get on that. SO much good stuff I want to share!
  • My laptop needs a good cleaning.
  • My bedroom, walk-in closet looks like a refugee camp for homeless items.  Guess I should address that as I cannot even get 2 feet inside.
  • I have to do some laundry, it’s calling my name and I just do NOT feel motivated.
  • The cat litter box needs my attention too.  But I’m slacking. Not wise, they tend to lash out irrationally by doing their ‘business’ else where I’m told.  Guess I’d best get on it before they prove it is true.
