When all else fails, laugh - Friday Confessional


I confess...
that even though it is VERY nice to come home and find out that my retired neighbors took pity on me and my pitiful yard making sure that my hedges were trimmed, my edges were weed-eated, and my backyard was completely cut... I don't know how to repay them... and a "Thank you" doesn't seem like it would be enough. *sigh*

I confess...
that my my best friend moving to 2nd grade is going to be harder than I realized... and that I have to restrain from crying any time anyone mentions it around me. So, in turn, I make jokes to lighten the mood.

I confess...
I have been making a LOT of jokes lately.

I also confess ...
that I have a feeling I'm going to be ostracized by the other 3rd grade teachers next year since together Laura and I held strong against them, but on my own I might get steamrolled. (Yes, there is DRAMA in our grade level.)

I confess...
I was never part of "girl drama" in high school or college... so I really don't know how to go about it.  Because, honestly, I find it completely ridiculous!

I confess...
that finding out from my date that we are going with 4 other couples (all his friends) to the Elton John concert makes me a little less excited about going... that I almost backed out of the date.

I confess...
that going with 4 other couples (in my eyes) presents us as a couple as well... and I'm not there with him yet.

I confess...
that things like this make me laugh. (Even though I know it's dirty)

I confess...
that I had a video as well on my original post that contained a dirty joke.... but because of how I was raised, I felt guilty and deleted it.

I confess...
that I find it amazing how powerful "guilt" is sometimes... especially when it is enforced by no one but you.

I confess...
I will still watch that video because it makes me laugh.


  1. Re: neighbors. Bake a cake, that ALWAYS goes well. (post pictures!)

    No reason to feel guilty about jokes. We need humor to survive especially when working with a lot of other women together. (I love women and I'm proud to be one, but put 10 of us in 1 room and it's high school all over again.)

  2. Wow, what awesome neighbors you have!

    I think you should post whatever YOU want, its YOUR blog. =)

  3. WOW I wish my neighbors would do all that yard work for me! Seriously.....but your right a thank you card doesn't seem like enough for all that!!

  4. DRAMA...i avoid it at all costs.

    for reals.

    did you know that your profile is not enabled and neither is your email address?


    this means that you spend so much time leaving lovely comments on people's blogs and they have no way of responding to a question or thanking you for stopping by or just continuing the conversation...because instead of your email address all they see is "no-reply comment".

    sad right?

    you can fix that if you like.

    just go to your dashboard, click edit profile and click show email address and click share profile and then click save profile.


    and i PROMISE if you change this blogging will get even better and become even more fun!

    AND people will be able to find your blog, the only way i was able to find you is because you linked up your confessionals!!

  5. I never took the girl drama class, either. And it can be vicious around here. with thirty and forty-somethings....I don't get it....and I don't want to get it...

    I am visiting from Mamarazzi's blog.
