Midweek Confessions

- On our weekly run to Target yesterday, Sam pooped.  That in and of itself wasn't that big of a deal; but, it was not just an ordinary poop.  It took approximately five aisles to get it "all out," and he was quite vocal about it... Lots of grunting and tooting.  You get my gist?  And, it stunk.  A lot... Like, people could probably smell him when they walked by me (and - no doubt - judged me).  Of course, I left my diaper bag in the car.  So... how did I handle this stinky emergency?  I leisurely finished my shopping trip, obviously.  And, would you believe it, the poop was still there when we got to the car about 40 minutes later. ;)  (Too much? Sorry!)

- Day One of my Couch-to-5K running plan looked a little like this: 5 minute warm up walk, 1 minute jog, 90 second walk, repeat a bunch of times, stop and buy a sugary coffee treat at the shop down the street, 5 minute "cool down" walk back home while sipping said drink.  I'm not sure whether to call this a victory or a failure.

- The main reason I don't like cooking dinner is because of the horrible mess I make.  By the time I cook, eat, feed Sam, wrangle him into a bath and pjs, and put him to bed, the LAST thing I want to do is clean up the kitchen (and Jeff is right there with me... We are exhausted and ready to just relax)!  The result? I wake up every morning to a disgusting kitchen and start the whole process over again... It would be so much easier to just go out to eat - every night.  Plus, the food is way better.  #whatkindofstayathomemomami?

- Since I've been at home all day, I've been drinking WAY too much coffee.  Probably four cups a day.  I just love it so much.  Some people have wine in the afternoons to relax, I have iced coffee.  Is that so bad?

- I just finished Fifty Shades of Grey.  This is the primary confession.  (I've been debating and debating whether or not to share this... Seriously, I'm kind-of mortified that I even read it, but everyone was talking about it and I just couldn't resist.)  I did NOT love it (or even like it that much).  For those of you that are Fifty Shades lovers, consider that my confession.  I am a prude through and through. :)

That's all for today... What do you need to get off your chest?


  1. My co-worker kept going down to the garage periodically throughout the day to read that book in her car. She would come back smelling of smoke and all happy. Didn't interested me in the least. I'm with you on the prude factor.

    1. This is HILARIOUS. I assure you that I DID not read it smoking in my garage. Haha! :)

  2. I'm on week 2/day 1 of couch-to-5k. I drink a homemade, blended coffee drink after my workout every morning, so I won't judge you. I tell myself it's not so bad, because I put soy yogurt and almond milk in it.

  3. 4 cups of coffee sounds perfectly reasonable to me. But maybe that's because the only thing that keeps me from getting a caffeine IV is that I love the taste of coffee, ha :)

  4. Haha I think you should definitely count your workout a raging success. And-- shock and horrors!!!! You read 50 Shades?!?!! You might be the first person I know to admit you didn't love it! Other than the people giving 1-star reviews on Amazon...which are REALLY HILARIOUS, btw.

  5. I did C25K last year and loved it...I ran cross country in high school and wish they had this conditioning app back then, it really works so keep to it! Speaking of, I need to get back to running, too!

  6. I am going to say that your workout counts as a victory! Any workout to me is a victory--whether it be 15 minutes or 1 hr!! It's all better than none!!!

  7. I can relate to your Target experience. When my son was about a year old, my family and I went to the mall. We lived out away from town, so it took awhile for us to get there. We got the Dude all loaded up in his stroller and realized we had left the diaper bag at home. We realized this just in time for him to have a wet diaper that rivaled the size of most flotation devises. Instead of turning around and driving all the way home like normal parents would have, I did what must insane mothers would do and promptly ran to the ladies room and purchased a massive amount of maxipads to pad the inside of his onesie. It worked surprisingly well. Hopefully, he won't be scarred from having to wear those. I'm pretty sure his dad was petrified. Blessings!

  8. OK, number one you are hysterical with your target visit and your kid's poop. I was crackiing up. I just finished the first Fifty Shades book. I too read it to see what all the hype was about. I didn't love it - I was all HOLY CRAP!

  9. i am so glad i'm not the only one that didn't like 50 shades!! i haven't shared with anyone outside of close, close friends that i have been reading it. i actually didn't even make it all the way through because i am mortified myself for reading it!
