Friday Confessional-Camping

Jessica: I have bubbles in my tummy, I think. I need to stretch.
Lea: Oh, so you’re gonna go in the tent and fart, is that what you’re saying?
Jessica: No, it’s just air, it’s not stink. –Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica

Yay it’s finally Friday!

I confess…

That I am super excited that Match gets a whole week off starting today! Woohoooooo.

I confess…

That as a present to him, I am giving him some alone time by going to a matinée with Good Girl to see Water for Elephants.  He will most likely be sleeping off his graveyard shift (the last graveyard shift for the next two weeks, woohoo!) so he won’t even notice I’m gone. But it still counts!

I confess…

That next week starts part two of Operation Mini Honeymoon. We have a family gathering to go to for Match’s aunt’s birthday, and then after that we’re heading to the coast for a long overdue camping trip.

I confess…

That  Match and I have never been camping together. Yes this Oregon outdoorsy girl who spent her childhood has never been camping with her husband who also spent his childhood camping. What is wrong with us? We have slept in a tent once while staying with his hippy friends when we first started dating. But that didn’t count as camping as there was no fire and we weren’t in the woods. No fire= no smores= not really camping.

I confess…

That I’m already fantasizing about the smores. Is that bad?

I confess…

That after I eat all of those said smores, I may make air in the tent. But don’t worry Match, it’s just air, not stink! 😉

I confess…

That next week I will probably be pretty mia while I spend some quality time with my hubby. I’m going to schedule some posts but if I don’t reply to your comments that’s the reason. And I don’t feel one bit guilty. This is Mini Honeymoon part two bitches! I cannot  wait!!

So what are you confessing this week? Go visit Glamazon and Mamarazzi and link up!

Friday Confessional-3 Day Weekend

 

Photobucket 

Is it Friday already? Time really flew by this week, my first week of “retirement”. I have a few confessions for you.

I confess…

That I love being a housewife and I don’t care how retro that makes me sound. I love that our house is clean, the bed is made and dinner is homemade each night.

I confess…

That I do feel a little weird not having my own income. I have a small one from blogging, but it’s nothing compared to what I used to bring in. It feels weird not being the “bread winner”. At least I’m not a shopaholic. It’s not like I go out and buy gold earrings and clothes all the time, but I do think I will miss my personal disposable income.

I confess…

That I am anxious for Match to get his assignment and figure out his schedule so I can figure out mine. I can’t wait to volunteer and take a couple of classes.

I confess…

That I do feel guilty if I don’t get a ton of stuff done every day while Match is working. If I sit down for a few minutes I start to feel bad. But then I remember that even people with day jobs take breaks, so I can too!

I confess…

That today is the first day of Match’s three day weekend so I will be playing hooky from the computer for the rest of the day. I can’t wait to go PLAY!

Haven’t you ever played hooky before, Lois? – Clark, Lois and Clark

It’s finally Friday and time for my weekly confessions.

I confess…

That I left work at 11:30am yesterday “sick” and took the rest of the day off. My receptionist was in on it and totally played up my sickness and loudly said I should “take my germs and go home so you won’t infect the rest of us.” Followed by a wink and a whispered, “have fun!” as I left.

I confess…

That I’m calling in sick again today. What are they going to do? FIRE ME?! In the 4 years that I was there, I rarely used my sick days. So I’m doing it.

I confess…

That while I have the day off I still can’t seem to just relax. I have a bunch of things to cross off the to-do list including: scrubbing the tub, walking Monkey, working out, getting the oil changed, tires rotated, sending a package at the post office, working on my Grandma’s 75th birthday slideshow, buying wedding gifts for Token Gay Couple and Geeky and her Fireman, buy Match some don tomas cigars online for graduation, and going dress shopping for graduation.

I confess…

That I find most of the things on my to do list fun. I’m such a weirdo.

I confess…

That I am over the moon excited about date night tonight. Match and I are finally going on that date in San Francisco. We’re taking the metro so we don’t have to drive at all and we can both drink and be CRAZY. We’re starting off with sushi and then we may bar hop or try to find a comedy club.

I confess…

That I also plan on being far too handsy in public with my hubby. I blame it on academy. Three words for you: Wash.Board.Abs. Mama like!

What do you have to confess this week?

Friday Confessional-I Need to Get Over Myself

George: I need you to get over yourself. I need you to start liking my wife. I need you to like her because sometimes I don’t and I need you to talk me back into it. You say you’re my friend and that’s the job.
Izzie: Okay.
George: I need to vent, and I need it to be okay.
Izzie: Okay.
George: And I need to vent with alcohol. –Grey’s Anatomy

I confess:

That I was way too selfish last night when Match told me he failed a scenario. I cried for me because I was afraid I’d have to stay at this god awful job.

I confess:

That I did get over myself and comforted Match. I told him I love him no matter what and I’m so proud of him. He gets a chance to retake the test and he WILL pass. We studied his scenarios until we fell asleep.

I confess:

That as much as I talk about the power of positive thinking, I can’t help but have sweaty palms and a fluttery heart today at work. Match is going to call when he’s done and if he passed (he WILL!) I get to turn in my notice. I want to so so badly, as they’ve started making me come into work every day, starting today. They didn’t even give me Friday at home to finish out the week.

I confess:

That no matter what happens I plan on drinking HEAVILY tonight. Chandler and Token Gay Couple are coming to visit. I am so excited to see them!

I confess:

That I am scared. I try to stay positive and upbeat but this is my diary and I have to stay truthful. I’m scared that I won’t be able to quit. I’m nervous about quitting if I can. I’m scared that Match will pass and it will forever change our lives. I’m scared that he won’t. I’m scared of so many things right now that I can barely focus on anything, much less getting through this work day.

I confess:

That in the grand scheme of things, these problems are all small potatoes. They are nothing compared with what most people deal with in the world, especially in Japan right now. So I will put on my big girl shoes and suck it up. But I just needed that minute to be selfish. Thanks for listening.

My First Friday Confessional

Logan: Hey, I have to tell you something.

Veronica: I’m sorry, we’re past the confessional portion of this program. We’re on to the make out. –Veronica Mars

So one of my new bloggy BFFs, Impulsive Addict, introduced me to this amazing blog prompt called

Friday Confessional

Photobucket

Everyone links up and shares their confessions for the week. I LOVE it! Who among us doesn’t love a bit of juiciness to read, especially on a humdrum Friday? So I am going to play along, and I suggest you do the same. Click on the above picture to link up.

I confess:

That I cried in my car after a horrible sit down meeting with my manager where she told me I have to start coming back into the office full time. That’s a 2 hour commute, plus $5 bridge toll PER DAY. I never cry but I was just so frustrated. I feel so beat down by this job and I just can’t take it anymore.

I confess:

That I wrote my letter of resignation for work today. I’m not ready to hand it in but I cannot wait until I’m able to (hopefully the Monday after Match graduates). Just writing it out gave me a sense of relief.

I confess:

That I don’t want to work at all. I have researched countless jobs. I don’t want to be a merchandiser, I don’t want to have ANYTHING to do with Information Technology again, and I am way too klutzy to be a waitress/bartender or anything in the food service. I would much rather be a stay at home wife, and hopefully one day stay at home mom who gets paid millions to blog. It could happen. Don’t burst my bubble k? 😉

I confess:

That even though I have 30 minutes left of work at home today, I’m already enjoying homemade margaritas that Match made.

He is celebrating passing 3 of his scenarios. Only one more week left and he’s in the clear people. This calls for tequila!

I confess:

That I look like a hot mess when I work from home. At least I had my pinky out, all dainty like.


What are your confessions this week? Come on, spill it!
