Midweek Confessions

Let's just jump right in today - shall we?

- I'm not really feeling blogging today; even my confessions... BUT, I'm too vain to just let it go.  I'm too excited to see how many people will link up what all you will confess.  (The fact that I just told you I care about numbers makes me a terrible blogger by ALL internet standards, but at least it makes me an honest one.)

- My car and I are in a war.  Yesterday, it refused to start for the FIFTH time in the last two months.  I had just picked it up after a week in the shop and the second round of part-replacements the night before.  Then this morning, when the mechanic got there to tow it - it flipping STARTED like it was no big deal.  Secretly (well, not so secretly anymore) I'm wishing it would just DIE for good... We can't afford a new car right now, but I really want one.  So selfish.

- I overbooked myself this week - we have something going on every single night - and the result is, yet another, disastrous house and stressy me.  #myownfault  (There I go again, being trendy when I have no idea what it means and I don't even tweet.)

- For the life of me, I can not get up in the mornings.  I have been SO dang tired recently.  (I don't think I'm getting good quality sleep anymore - even on the nights Sam sleeps, I wake up several times to peek at the monitor.)  Seriously, every single night I go to bed way too early (like 9PM early) setting my alarm for 5 and vowing that I will not go back to sleep after Sam's 4:30 feeding... And then, every single morning, I oversleep until 6:30 and do a mad dash around the house to get ready for work and out the door on time. UG.

- I'm not doing very well on my 12 in 12.  I haven't even had one "good" day with it.  I've decided that New Year's Resolutions don't have to be carried out ALL year, they just have to be completed by the END of the year.  Fair?

- Nothing makes me want to be a stay at home mom more than rainy days.  I would never say that SAHMs have it easy, but at least they can stay in their pjs and watch talk shows till 11 some days when they want.

I admit, that did feel good... Ok, your turn! (You know the drill by now.)

  1. It's ok to care about the blog numbers. We all (not so ) secretly do. :)

  4. Sorry that you're having car troubles! I hate when machines don't work the way they should... I have very little patience with such things. And yes! New Years resolutions span the year-- as long as you get things done by the end of the year, you're golden. :)

  5. Sounds like you are having a rough time. I hope things turn around soon. I agree that being a SAHM is not easy, but I worked for my girls' first year and it was hell. I am much more relaxed and happy now that I stay home. I'm not trying to rub it in, but anyone who says that being a SAHM is AS HARD as being a working mom is wrong. I've done both and my life is much easier and happier now, even though it's still challenging.

    And Andrea W. is right. we do all care about blog numbers. Who wants to write a blog and work hard at it and have nobody read it. I'm heading back to my blog now, to write my own confessions. I'll be back to link up soon.

    Have a happy, happy day.

  6. I am a stay home mom. It was pouring this morning and I said a prayer of thanks that I didn't have to go out in it.

  7. New follower (also from Virginia). It was raining here today too and I was so glad to just snuggle in bed with my boys and watch movies. Looking forward to following and participating in your link up :)

  8. Don't feel pressure to confess every Wednesday... I think we'd still link up even if you just posted your 'weekend confessions' grab button and peaced out one week. We love you confessions or no confessions and we follow you because you're honest and make us feel less alone.

  10. Since we started back from Winter Break I also have been struggling to wake up in the morning. I don't have a baby or anything to blame. I just want to sleep more.
