I confess – > I love Fridays.  That doesn’t really seem like a opening-up-I’m-sharing-something-amazing type of thing but still.  I love them all the same.  Fridays hold such a feeling of excitement – the weekend is an open book, full of opportunities and explorations.  Even if 99% of the time, I just squander them away by binge watching Netflix and organizing my hair tie collection.  The HOPE of Friday is real.

These are my Friday confessions:

1.  I confess that I ate an entire pan of peanut butter bars by myself.  I have absolutely no remorse.  Sharing food is overrated.

2.  I confess that I have an addiction to online window shopping.  I’ll even go so far as to put things into my virtual cart, get overwhelmed with spending so much money and then I just close the browser window (and walk into the kitchen for some peanut butter bar).  I KNOW I’m not alone in this tomfoolery – do you do this??

3.  I sometimes feel as though I’m living a groundhog day.  The same food, the same workouts, the same schedule, the same ways of coping with crying/annoying children.  The same.  Sometimes it’s wonderful to have routine and sometimes I forget which day it is because they all look EXACTLY the same.

4.  I confess that I’ve taken three pregnancy tests in the past three weeks.

5.  I confess that I’m not pregnant.  And that I’m a little bummed about it.

6.  I confess that I only encouraged Travis to coach Henry’s soccer team this year so that WE could have control over the day/time of practice.  (And Travis is an amazing coach but that really had very little to do with my nudging).

One year ago.  Look at Porter!!

7.  I confess that we need God more than ever before.  Our country is flailing and as much as I hate it when people use scare tactics to turn nonbelievers to Christ (“fire and brimstone, hell, damnation”), perhaps a little “the end is near”-talk is appropriate right now.  Are you a believer??  Message me and let me tell you why I am (seriously)!

8.  I confess that Travis and I have been using our Ultimate Frisbee nights as “dates”.  Unconventional, yes.  But after we’re done playing, I’ve never felt closer to him.  Sweating together creates magic, I tell ya.

I lure him in with my knee-high socks….

9.  I can’t stop watching this video.  Or this one.  And I can’t help waiting by the front window for the mailman to bring me these .

10.  I’m going to make another pan of peanut butter bars today.  And not share.

 

These are my confessions.

Peace out, friends.   And ENJOY this weekend.   See you Monday!

QUESTION:  Confess something to me.  I won’t judge.

    Totally the same about the online shopping! I don’t do it often, but when I do I never hit “check out.” ;)

    Curious as to what you’re saying about “the end…” I think sometimes there are signs but people have thought that for hundreds of years too, so while I try to live each day like it could be the end (although often I forget because of your other point above – routine! mundane! etc – I’d love to hear your thoughts. You have my email. :)

    I LOVE this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dejKH76hdKc

    Happy weekend!
