Confessions


Thursday, February 2, 2017

Oh my goodness. This week has been crazy. Seriously, this mama could use a break and some sleep. But it's time for some Confessions.

I CONFESS...

/ that single parenting for a week isn't for me. I don't mind it usually, but when you mix in sick kids, it wipes you out. So hard. I haven't slept for more than a couple hours in almost a week and I am running on lots of coffee. My wallet hurts from how much coffee I have bought this week.

/ that while watching the Bachelor on Monday night, I was secretly hoping Corrine would stay because I love the drama. I hate the way Nick talks and he isn't as good of a Bachelor as I thought he was going to be. But I still watch it nonetheless and I LOVE the drama. And you can't kick off Corrine if you want drama.

/ that I hope my husband "surprises" me with something awesome from his trip. Something to make this week feel a bit better.

/ that I am missing the gym and my daily walks are just not doing it for me work out wise. Please oh please, let me be able to do something more than walk next week!

/ that I was super bummed my dad's friend didn't get me my beloved scotch when he was in Washington (the state). It is the only place that sells it in the US and it is the one I toured while in Scotland. But he did make up for it when he brought back crab. I can't wait to cook and eat some crab!!!

/ that I only downloaded Snapchat for the filters to use when I take selfies with my girls or to watch other people's stories. I just don't get the hype of it.

/ that there is so much negativity on FB, IG, Twitter and Snapchat lately that I have felt like taking a break from all social media, but then I love seeing photos of my friends and their daily lives. I just want to get rid of the negativity surrounding all the events going on in life. I get it. It is awful, but it is making me question some of my friendships when I see how radical people can be. For now I just shake my head and quickly move on.

/ that I hope the groundhog does NOT see his shadow. I am over all this snow and want some sunshine and Spring. We have had record amounts of snow and are at 177% of our average snowfall. Let's call it good and only have some snow in the mountains.

  1. Single parenting is hard. Add in sick kids and it's miserable. I'm so sorry!! I'm over the social media negativity too. It's just time to move on!! I feel the same at ab the bachelor. Corinne is awful but makes for some good tv!

  2. I don't like how Nick talks either--someone said he has a lisp, but I think it's more that he mumbles. This season is probably the dumbest yet.
    Hoping you get some more sleep and less sickness in your house!

  3. So sorry the girls have been sick while Rory has been gone. That definitely makes single parenting much harder. I'm definitely over the negativity on social media. I haven't really noticed any on IG, but facebook is awesome and I want that to go away. Ugh!

  5. I feel ya lady. Social media is taking a turn in all the negative. It's clearing out the ones that make you feel bad. I go there to put a smile on my face, not feel a lump in my gut.
    I hope your hubs surprises you too - you deserve it!!!!!
    I dont get Snapchat either. Never have. My youth girls keep trying to get me open an account & I say every time - WHYYY? I DONT GET IT!

  6. Oh mama! I hope the solo parenting gig is up soon for you and that you are able to get some good rest! Snapchat is fun! What is your username? And I agree about the negativity. So many people at our church are fasting from Facebook this week and they were talking about how nice it’s been to not see so much negativity lately!

  7. Yep. I have snap chat only for the features too. My daughter is obsessed!

  8. Single parenting is definitely not for the weak. It is HARD. I'm so sorry that you've had to deal with all the sickness on top of it.

    And I don't understand all of the hype of Snapchat either. I've been on there for years and I rarely ever look at it. I'm like you, I just like the filters!

  9. I'd love for them to have the bachelor or bachelorette be someone totally new and not the cast off from previous seasons! I love snapchat and IG stories but not gonna lie, can't stand when I see that some of the people who religiously watch never post! Haha I mean it's not that big of a deal, just want to see what everyone else is up to too!

    1. Me too. I liked it when they did that. It was sooo long ago though. Bring in fresh blood so we can get to know them while getting to know the contestants. Haha. I am guilty of not doing enough IG stories. I need to do more!

  10. Oh my gosh! YES! Social media is filled with such bitterness. I just can't deal with it anymore.

  11. It has been so cold here that I can't even go on my walks comfortably. I am missing that so much. Hoping spring pops up earlier than planned. Happy almost Friday.

  12. Unfortunately, social media has been so negative! I'm resisting most forms of it and spending my time trying to get more done around the house! I just can't stand reading some of it anymore.

  13. Ughh I cannot stand Corrine but I agree, you can't have drama without her! I also don't get the snapchat hype, my kids use it more than me LOL.

  14. Girl sometimes nothing fixes a bad day more than buying a coffee. SO lots of bad days totally justifies lots of coffee. Corinne is the worst, but I don't like Nick at all really, so it's kind of entertaining to watch them together. I'm honestly still kind of ticked they bailed on Luke being the bachelor at the last minute. YUM I love crab so much, enjoy!

  15. I feel you on the single parenting. That was me a couple weeks ago and it'll be me again later this month. You never realize just how much you rely on your other half until they're gone! I'm with you on the negativity. I'm so over it.
