Happy Monday Friends! Since I haven't done a "Confessions Post" for you lately, that is what you are getting today.
I Confess: That I was NOT happy when Annalee woke me at 4:30 this morning wanting a bottle. The girl usually always sleeps all night & until at least 8:00 in the mornings. I have no idea why she woke. Maybe she is going through a growth spurt.
I Confess: That I wasted valuable sleeping time this morning playing on the Internet. I just couldn't help myself. It was so quiet around here which is a big change from the normal.
I Confess: That I've been pinning inspirational quotes on pinterest like crazy. For some reason I've been in a "deep" kind of mood the past few days!
I Confess: That I did not do nearly the housework that I had planned to do today. The place is livable again so that is all that really matters anyways :)
I Confess: That my Mother literally drives me up one wall and down another. She is the most opinionated and argumentative woman ever. I think I must get my hard headed tendencies from her. Regardless of how crazy she drives me though, she is still my BEST FRIEND! I have no idea what I'd do without her.
I Confess: That my heart is breaking for a little girl Anika goes to school with. It appears she tried to commit suicide. I cannot imagine how down and out she must have felt to take such drastic measures. Our kids are exposed to so much bullying and peer pressure these days. It must be a really hard time to be a teenager.
I Confess: That Anika is making me feel really sorry for her for taking her phone. I will NOT cave though. I grounded her and it's going to stick. I'm just going to have to use some tough love!
I Confess: That I was REALLY happy Little Man took a nap today. It always makes his mood so much better in the evenings.
I Confess: That I googled "What the Bible says about Alcohol". I swear religion confuses me so much. My SIL informed me today that she thought I had a problem with organized religion. Hmmm, that is something to ponder on.
I Confess: That I have the BEST Sister in Law (technically she is an Ex-Sister in Law) in the world. You should be jealous. She brought me a whole box of chocolate cupcakes today. I'd share a pic with you but they are already 1/2 gone.
I Confess: That I blared Christmas music this morning trying to get myself in the holiday spirit. It did not work.
I Confess: That I missed my Hubby something terrible today. I want him to have one more week of vacation. I just wasn't tired of him yet.
I Confess: That I made a To Do List today and much of nothing got done on it. Oops, my bad!
I Confess: That I cook in my Crock Pot a lot! It's so much easier and such less mess to clean. Today we had Roast with Potatoes and Baby Carrots. It was a delicious meal.
I Confess: I had two full plates of food. It was really too much. I glutted myself.
I Confess: That I haven't minded the grey skies and downpours we have had today. It's been a good day to stay inside and do nothing.
I Confess: That the only time I left my house today was to run to town to get Axle milk. I've been that lazy today!
I Confess: That I made Hand print Salt Dough Ornaments with the kids today. I also confess that I am the most non-creative person you will ever meet. I do not think they are going to turn out good. I apparently cannot follow simple directions. They are still in the oven so we shall see.
I Confess: That I still DO NOT have any idea what I'm buying people for Christmas. I have to get on the ball and start buying presents. Christmas is almost here and I'm so not prepared.
I Confess: That I HATE that I allow smoking to defeat me. I already have the cough of a 90 year old and I so need to quit. I just can't bring myself to do it.
I Confess: That Axle got a new therapist today through First Steps and I really like him. He's a developmental interventionist and he's awesome with Ax. He will be coming here to work with him 1 day a week. I really think he's going to be very good for him.
I Confess: That I keep meaning to share some pics with you and yet I never do it. I have pics of new outfits for Annalee for Christmas and new Christmas Ornaments to show you. Maybe one of these days I'll get them posted or maybe not.
I Confess: That Anika's birthday is next week and I have done NO prepping for it.
I Confess: That my trunk is still loaded down with the gifts we bought on our shopping trip last week. That is seriously pathetic. I really need to bring them inside and get them hid.
I Confess: That when I read posts about ladies and their church friends and family, it makes me jealous. I have no idea why I fight getting into church so hard. My mind works in mysterious ways I suppose.
I Confess: That December 21st freaks me out a little. It's Anika's birthday which is a special day for us BUT in the back of my mind I keep thinking what if those darn Mayans are right.
I Confess: That I've had an order for an X-ray on my C-spine for 2 weeks now and I still haven't went to get it done. I'm such a procrastinator.
I Confess: That I don't recall anything that is on my Winter Bucket List or December Goal List so now I'm going to have to go back and look.
I Confess: That sometimes I want to delete my Facebook all together. There is so much sadness on there anymore.
I Confess: That I NEED to pick up some special Christmas Cards for some special people and get them in the mail ASAP!
I Confess: That I look at the calendar for the rest of December and just shake my head. We are going to be CRAZY busy.
I Confess: That Anika and I both have therapy appointments tomorrow. This will be our first appointment. I am a little nervous. I know she is too.
I Confess: That I'm craving cooler temps. That is insane coming out of my mouth. It's hard to get into the Christmas spirit though with 60 degree temps.
I Confess: That to be a Monday, today wasn't too bad. Hope yours has went well too my friends.
I'm off to check the ornaments, do a little pinning on pinterest and then hitting the hay. I'm quite tired and tomorrow is going to be another busy day.
Talk to you all Tomorrow,
