Friday Confessional #2


I confess:

I hate mommy guilty. I hate feeling like whatever I do or don't do, I am damaging my children. Some shrink is gonna make a lot of money one day when my kids are older. They are going to have lots of "mommy issues".

So what if my house is not the most organized and structured? I don't live on a rigid schedule where every breath is scheduled and every trip to the bathroom is written down. We do what we need to when we need to. We are on time to school every day. (too bad I can't say the same thing about church. don't judge me.) Sometimes we have plans and sometimes they don't always happen. Go with the flow, right? I'm sorry I don't plan six months in advance. I guess I'm too busy living in the moment.

My kids are loud..sometimes I am talking break the sound barrier loud. They have no idea what an inside voice is. But they have fun together. They play together. They laugh together. I think the rest of us just need to invest in decent ear plugs. I don't want to be a kill joy.

I have broken everyone of my New Year's Resolutions all ready. Seven days into the new year, and I suck!!

I have become a complete and total homebody. I use to hate being home all the time, now I hate leaving the house. Getting myself ready and out the door is almost too much for me. I have a Blogger's GNO later this month. Last time I went, I had a blast. I don't know if I want to go to this one this time. It requires me getting ready and leaving the house. Good thing I have no life or this new "condition" could be a lot worse.

I'm completely and totally addicted to Castle. I got season 1 and 2 on DVD for Christmas. Yeah, I am done with both seasons. I watched them over Christmas break while I got caught up on laundry and also while I walked on my treadmill. I have taken a bit of a break from watching season 3. But I bet I will be done by next week. Pathetic, I know.

I gained six pounds over Christmas Break. I think it's all in my cheeks. Whenever I talk on my phone, I seem to always hang up on whoever I am talking to...or at least that's what I tell them. I ate way too many goodies over the Holidays. My pants are a little tighter now. I'll do better...right after I have banana splits with my munchkins. :)

With ya on the mommy guilt sucks! How to make it go away I do not know.
Bit I sure hope you DO come to the GNO this month. It was so much fun last time and it wouldn't be the same without you. :)

Emily said...

Love it! I admire your honesty! I think we all feel that way, we just don't want to admit it. Hang in there!

I have a little mommy guilt for today when I turned into a mommy monster. I'm so a homebody too. Most of the time I love it. I agree that sometimes it just takes so dang long to get ready to go anywhere that I'd just rather stay home. But I think being a homebody is great!...most of the time. And I really hope you do come to GNO.

Dude. Put on your big girl pants (and I don't mean that in the 6 lbs way, doofus) and GO! You know you will regret it if you don't. And you know once you actually get there, you'll have a ball!

another reason to resolve to not make any resolutions.

mommy guilt is the worst.

living in the moment is the best.

put on some lipstick and go to the will be glad you did.

i know you don't know me but take my advice, trust me i am cool...really i am.

thanks for linking up and confessing!!
