Ahhhh sweet Friday! How about a few confessions before the weekend gets rolling?
I confess… that yesterday, I was in a funk. A bad mood. One of those days, and I don’t even know why. I didn’t wake up in a bad mood. I even enjoyed a nice breakfast with my mom and nephew before heading to work. But very soon after arriving at the office, I detected extreme irritability in myself. I had to keep chanting in my head, “Shut up, bury yourself in work, stay out of everyone’s way”. I didn’t want to spread my bad mood to anyone else. And I didn’t want to say anything to get myself in trouble.
I confess… my bad mood had reached a point that I finally decided, “F*ck it. I need ice cream.” You see, at breakfast, my mom had asked if she & Caden went for ice cream that night, if I’d like to go with them. I waffled a little. I dedicated myself to being extra healthy this week, and after already slipping up once, I didn’t think I should compound that with ice cream. So I said, “I’m not sure, I’ll let you know.”
I confess… that when I called Mom mid-afternoon to say that, yes, I DID want to go for ice cream, and she replied that they had already gone, I kind of almost cried. Like, for serious. Tears welled up in my eyes and everything. I was so depressed.
I confess… that even though I know my waistline will thank me, I was really, really frigging bitter about it in the moment.
I confess… that on Wednesday night, I took Caden to see the new Teenaged Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. And it wasn’t even his idea. I’ve been dying to see it ever since I heard a new one was coming out. And yes, Michaelangelo is still my favourite turtle.
I confess… I’m glad I have an 8-year-old nephew to use as my “excuse” to go see TMNT.
I confess… that I’m also really bitter about having to plan this year’s Car Rally. Up until this point, I haven’t really been worrying too much about it, but the time is drawing near when we have to start making some serious plans. It’s a lot of work. And it’s time consuming. I know it will all be worth it in the end (at least, I hope) – but for now, I’m just bitter.
I confess… that I will never, ever be part of a winning Car Rally team. If the question says, “How many posts are in this fence?” I will write “BLUE”. Seriously.
I confess… that even I can sense that I need to cheer myself up here, so here’s a list of things I’m looking forward to: the freedom of Saturday (no big plans!), starting PiYo on Monday, Shawville Fair, and trying out new healthy recipes that I have been pinning lately. And FALL. I’m so excited for fall!!
I think that’s all I’ve got for today… Hope you all enjoy your weekends! :)
