Friday Confessions: Life is…busy.

I’m really not sure whether I’m coming or going…it’s been a busy week, and the weekend isn’t going to hold much rest and relaxation. 

But it’s going to be FUN!

Before embarking on all that fun, though…let’s link up with Mamarazzi and confess.


I confess…that I was completely overwhelmed with the attention my little ol’ blog got this week following my #NoMoreBullies (Or, How I fell in love with Bryan Berard) post.  Several friends drew my attention to the fact that the link was being passed around on Twitter by many folks and groups, in conjunction with the #NoMoreBullies campaign, as well as D.I.F.D. supporters.  When I checked my webpage hits this week, I had more in the past couple of days than ever before.  Thank you, all – for reading, and for sharing.  Raising awareness for youth mental health is exactly what I aimed to do with that post!

I confess…that as awesome as all of that is, I was a little embarrassed to discover that some people were sending the link to Bryan Berard, telling him to check it out.  Eeeeek… I said the guy was meaty-looking with stringy hair!  I’m holding out hope that Bryan Berard is likely too busy to bother reading what some fan wrote about him…but in case he did, I hope he knows I meant that in the kindest way possible, and that I truly have become one of his biggest fans.  I HEART YOU, BRYAN!!


I confess…that I think I’ve had several small panic attacks when I stop and think about the fact that I ordered a way-too-small bridesmaid dress that I have to fit into in less than four months.  Seriously.  What was I thinking?!?

I confess…that I thought I had all day tomorrow to lounge around, watch movies, and enjoy a peaceful Saturday before going to see the Pontiac Community Players production of Joseph & the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat Saturday evening in Shawville.   But somehow, I kinda forgot that I need to make 5 lbs. of meatballs for our church supper Sunday night, and that I still need to buy and  carve a pumpkin.  Oh, and I ran out of foundation this morning.  So my Saturday just got a little bit busier.  I’ll be up bright & early to go shopping.  *sigh*

I confess…that when I got an email yesterday to tell me I had won two 100-level tickets to the Sens/Leafs game on Sunday night, I thought it was a hoax.  Then I remembered that I actually did enter a contest on Facebook for them via the Team 1200, but never thought I’d actually win.

I confess…that I spent most of yesterday in a conundrum over what to do with the tickets – how to pick them up, and trying to figure out whether or not I could even go to the game.  I figured my mother might kill me if I skipped the church supper.  But I think we’ve worked out a deal (I’m going early to help set up and work the early shift) – yes, even she agreed it would be a crying shame to win such awesome seats and then give them up!  Big thanks to my friend Stacy who has offered to pick up the tix for me!  I owe you HUGE!!

I confess…that I might need another weekend to recover from this weekend.  And there’s no end in sight, as the next week and weekend will also be crazy-busy.  That’s okay, though.  All this running around should help me get skinny, right?

Have a great weekend, everyone!!

Hey Jilly. I've got a pumpkin with your name on it on my door step. No need to pay for one. I'll try to remember it tonight.

p.s. EVERYTIME you do a confessions post, the Usher song pops in my head!

I understand your dress apprehension. I tried on my very skin tight Halloween costume last night and am not feeling so great about stuffed into it. But it'll all be fine. :)

I always go shopping early--fewer people especially in my college town. No one is up and about early on a Saturday.

Hope you enjoy the game! Rest on Monday! Over from Mamarazzi!

Jilly - are you gonna come out Saturday night? I'll tell Casey to play a little "Feelin' Alright" for you :)

Stacie said...

You are brave--the dress thing would freak me out. But I know you can do it!

Too bad I didn't know about your pumpkin dilema, Reg threw ours in the green bin as I am going to exercise class (if I feel better!). Hope the game is exciting and we win!

well i am so late visiting i am sure the pumpkin has been carved and that your Bryan issue has been resolved, too funny that people sent him your post.

I am so late visiting everyone this week. So sorry, been a little under the weather and I am recovering at my folk's where the internet is so slow! But I really appreciate that you linked up your confessions, so thanks for that!!
