My confessions...

Megan over at Tales of the Trees did a post today on some of her confessions. I thought to myself, what a wonderful opportunity to share with the world some of my flaws as a wife, mother, whatever and to possibly give you a good chuckle!

1.) I hate folding laundry. HATE IT. Which is why we currently have baskets full of clean clothes waiting to be folded in the laundry room. I don't know where I get this from, my parents all folded our clothes right out of the dryer.

2.) I hate cleaning the kitchen right after I've made a big meal. I've gotten much better about this but last night I played outside with the girls and watched Daniel pull weeds out of our flower bed instead of cleaning the kitchen. So on days that the kitchen doesn't get cleaned after dinner, it gets cleaned when the girls go down for a nap the following day...only for it to be messed up in a few hours during dinner prep. It's a vicious cycle...kind of like laundry.

3.) I love children. I have always been drawn to babies. I now have two beautiful little girls of my own and I love them so much it's crazy sometimes. I have noticed though, since having my own, I really don't like other children. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my niece Ireland, and my nephew Dylan, and pretty much all of the kids in our families. But strange kids that don't belong to our families or close friends...chances are I'm not going to like them much! I would like to rephrase that last sentence, to not being able to tolerate them, not like them. And don't get me wrong, I would still play with them and talk to them and help them out if they needed help...but secretly I'm saying to myself "I'm glad you're not mine" HAHA. I feel like this statement has just earned myself a one way ticket to Hell.

4.) Since my surgery on April 18th, I have spent about 96% of my time in a t-shirt and scrub pants. Scrub pants that I may or may not have taken from the hospital. I think I have about four pairs of them. Normally I would feel guilty about taking them, but I can only imagine what that hospital bill is going to look like so I figure they can get over me taking a couple pairs of their pants. Seriously though, my stomach is still swollen and my ostomy areas are still tender. Not only are they tender but my one ostomy bag is right where the top of my pants would go. Needless to say when I do put on regular pants, they don't get zipped or buttoned because of this issue. I'm going to be wearing lots of dresses this summer.

5.) Speaking of bags, I hate mine. I know I'm only four weeks into this year long process but I hate them and am ready to be done with them. I'm still waiting for that moment when I don't mind them and am actually glad I have them.

6.) I can't bake. I tried making a homemade chocolate cake Tuesday, it was a major fail. Probably because instead of only putting in one and a half teaspoons of baking powder, I put in a tablespoon and a half. Typically this would be because of my impatience, but since my surgery my eyesight has gone down the toilet. Guess who will be getting glasses sometime in the near future??

7.) Since losing all of this weight, I feel the need to go out and buy all kinds of new clothes. It's a good thing we can't afford it right now. I'm supposed to be losing even more weight so it's best that I not buy to much right now anyway.

8.) Since my surgery my appetite has gone through the roof. Two weeks ago, I ate a whole bag of salted cashews all by myself over the course of two or three days. I also may or may not have added more sea salt to them. Also, pretty much every night since being home, I have eaten several of these bad boys. I'm addicted! Thankfully my appetite is starting to lessen.

9.) I'm a name brand girl. When I go to the grocery I tend to stay away from store brand items. This drives Daniel crazy. Anyway, since we're poor and needed groceries bad this past week and Meijer was having a great sale on a lot of their store brand items. Everything I purchased Tuesday was pretty much Meijer brand. I'm turning over a new leaf!

10.) I stopped taking my depression medicine a week ago due to a serious allergic reaction I had to it. Seriously you should my face, I'm still recovering from it. Not only can I tell I haven't had any, but so can Daniel. He informed me last night that I have been irritable these past two days. I will be put on another med at my next appointment in two weeks.

11.) Speaking of depression. My psychiatrist said I was so severely depressed, that she thought it would be best if I also started seeing a therapist. I feel like a

12.) I love the smell of lilac. I had a lilac bush at our old house and I miss that bush more than I will ever miss that Meijer sells a candle that smells EXACTLY like lilacs and I burned through the thing in about a week. Since then I have had this overwhelming desire to go back and buy every last one they have.

13.) Lastly, we're getting ready to start the big girl bed process with Addison. I already know this is going to be a battle which makes me just want to keep her in a crib. Sending my daughter to college in a crib might be a problem huh??

There's a few of my confession, please tell me that there are others out there that might relate to this craziness? :)

  1. I'm with you on #1 and #3. But you don't buy store brands?? Seriously?? OMG, I save SO MUCH MONEY with store brands and don't even taste a difference most of the time. About the only things I'm picky about are ketchup (Heinz FTW!) and the little Chef Boyardee meals that the boys love.
