Friday Confessional-Carmel Bound and Bathroom Sex

Robin: When PJ had a job, he was sexy. He was guardian of the bathroom key. A hot guy telling you when you can and can’t pee? That’s the dream.
Ted: [incredulous] That’s the dream? The dream?!?!?! Like what Martin Luther King was talking about?? –How I Met Your Mother

I confess…

That I quit my volunteer gig at the crisis nursery. I feel bad about it but it just wasn’t a good fit for me. I was physically dreading going, to the point where my body felt sick and sluggish. The minute I emailed the coordinator telling her it wasn’t going to work out, I felt a weight lift off my chest. Shouldn’t volunteering feel rewarding? A big part of my reason for quitting was the staff and how they made me feel.

Another part was just the nature of the job. It was a lot of stress and responsibilities to deal with and now just isn’t Β a good time. I think if I were like the other volunteers and had already raised children of my own, or had a lot of experience dealing with kids, then it would be another story. I did really love playing with the kids for the most part, and I’m still on the lookout for something in the future that involves working with kids. Maybe just not kids in crisis, but more of a nursery or after school program instead. Somewhere they would train me properly. I’d also like something in the town we are moving to when we buy a house. This volunteer job would have been a huge trek and cost us a lot in gas and bridge toll when we move.

I confess…

That our lives are also going to be consumed with buying a home. I know that once we close, I’m going to spend all of my spare time fixing up the house and making it our own. I cannot wait to become homeowners!

I confess…

That we put an offer in on a home on Sunday and we’re still waiting to hear back. I’m trying not to lose hope but it’s not looking good guys. I don’t even want to post pictures of it because it’ll bum me out. It’s sooo pretty.

I confess…

That I’m so so excited for our annual trip to Carmel. We are leaving just as soon as Match gets home from work today. I’m driving us so he can sleep and try to get on a normal day schedule. It will be so nice to walk the beaches with Match and Monkey. To get up in the morning and get coffee and donuts for the fam. To drink gin and tonics and watch the waves crash on the sand.

I confess…

That the only thing I’m dreading is having to sleep in the living room. This year Match’s sister, Travel Girl and her boyfriend will be joining us. It’s the first time we’re meeting him, and it’s the first time I’ve vacationed anywhere with her. Since she hasn’t been to Carmel in so long, and they are staying longer than we are, Match’s parents are giving them the guest room. This leaves us, the married couple, to the living room.

I confess…

That Match and I both think this is bullshit. BUT the in-laws are paying for the vacation rental, and a lot of the food for the weekend, and I really shouldn’t complain. I’m so grateful because otherwise we’d have to take out a check city payday advance loans. We are guests of theirs and we will have fun no matter where we have to sleep. They just might have to deal with us locking ourselves in the bathroom for a little vacation nookie. Hey, that’s what happens when you don’t give the newlywed couple who haven’t had a lot of time together lately the bedroom! πŸ˜‰

I confess…

It wouldn’t be the first time Match and I have done it in the bathroom of a parent’s house. We are so bad! Where’s the craziest place you’ve done it? Come on spill! Confession is good for the soul!




    the bathroom…love it. we were at a family party once and snuck into the PANTRY for a little lovin…it was kind of exciting but fast. lol…i was skeeered.

    sorry the volunteer thing didn’t work out. glad you feel good about your decision tho. have fun in Carmel, one of my favorite places.


    Vacations are fun. Yay for you guys! Gotta love sneaky doin’ it. No matter where, right?! That’s kind of fun.

    Have a blast on your trip =)


    Have a great vacation! Gotta admit, when you described Carmel, it kinda made me want to pack up and go RIGHT NOW. haha!!


    Nick and I ahve gotten our nookie in lots of places–bathrooms, his parents’ family room, lots of places. I much prefer a far more private place anymore though.
    Good luck on the house, home buying can be such a roller coaster.


    woah, now that’s a confession! πŸ™‚
    Hopefully the house will work out. I’m quite bummed about our house, we bought a few years ago and now our house is worth way less than what we bought it for, lets just hope the market goes up in a couple of years.

    Bathrooms gross me out so definitely not in there! Yuck! Have fun and I can’t wait to read your next confession!


    Yay! Have fun on your vacation!
    Oh, and the bathroom in the library at college. πŸ˜‰

    Impulsive Addict

    Girl, we’ve had lots of nookie in weird and fun places. We’re crazy like that!

    What’s up with Sarita’s answer? She hasn’t lived until she’s sexed it up in a bathroom!

    I still have hope for OUR dream home with a pool.

    Have fun this weekend. I’m still in shock that you have the living room. So silly.

    Talk to you next week!


    LOL, LOOOOOVE IT! Enjoy some vacation boooty and have a GREAT time on your trip! Safe travels πŸ™‚


    In a truck parked in my best friend’s parent’s driveway. Or in the truck on the side of the highway…..ok basically just lots of places in the truck hahaha

    Hmmm, that doesn’t really seem fair. Ya’ll should have gotten the guest room! And don’t feel bad about quitting the crisis center. Sometimes it takes a while to find out what you’re best at when it comes to volunteering. Be proud that you tried! That’s more than most people can say!

Your comments make my day!
