Confessions: Week of February 21

I confess that we decided not to move. We did end up getting a spot in my second choice neighborhood, but given that we'd have to pay movers, that most of the things Toby and I are getting involved in are off post, and that, while he was being supportive, I know that Tom really didn't want to make the move, I decided that there wasn't a clear and definite benefit to making the move. I can make things work where we are.

I confess that my mom visited us this weekend and was crying a lot last night and this morning when she left. I hate it when she does that because I end up feeling really guilty about not wanting to spend as much time visiting her as she wants us to.

I confess that I'm taking the day off from all housework except laundry today. As a result, I've already gotten over an hour of cardio in. If my house wouldn't become a disaster area, I'd say I need to take the day off more often!

I confess...

I miss him a lot today. Well, pretty much this weekend. It's a three day weekend since I'm a teacher, and I'm sure I've had too much time on my hands (and I'm also sure I'm PMSing). I have had things to do, but with so many extra hours, it wasn't enough. Currently, I'm avoiding grading papers, which I really should have gotten to by now, but eh. We have gotten to IM for a little bit most days and email a little on others, but I'm a little bummed we haven't been able to really have phone calls. He's rooming with a couple of other guys and just feels awkward about talking in front of them. I mailed off his headphones Sat, so hopefully it will only be another week before we can have semi-private convos. I don't know, just feel blah about it all. Have been doing a good job staying in a positive frame of mind, but I've hit a wall at 5 weeks. I'm sure I'll get back in the swing soon...it's just...I wish he was here so I could rest my head on his chest. I emailed him that I'd even watch one of his Discovery channel shows tonight (sometimes I turn them on so it's kinda like he's here, but generally I'd rather watch reality TV that he would roll his eyes at). I know he misses me too (and he's sick and miserable out there at the moment, still pulling his 12 hour days without break)...just wish he could be home.

I also confess that I ate several pieces of chocolate candy today (holiday leftovers- BAD!). I have been really good about my diet and lost several pounds (need to stay on the exercise bandwagon, but generally it's about the food for me, so I've really been trying to reign it in). I've been feeling pretty good about it, but sometimes it's just annoying and I wish I could just be naturally skinny and healthy! And, ugh, I shouldn't have had so many pieces of candy....I'm writing it off as a PMS craving and hoping I can keep myself together the rest of the week. Have

lol there's nothing wrong with whiney sometimes. especially on the internet, in a forum where you haven't met everyone reading it ;-) in fact, that's the best place to be whiney! haha

I confess that I am WAY behind on paperwork and should be doing it right now instead of being online. In fact, I should have taken my laptop to the hospital tonight but I didn't know my nephew was gonna be such a stubborn little brat (and I use the term very affectionately, lol) and make his mommy push for over 2.5 hours!

I'm with you on not working and watching ppl's baby and bump photos get posted on FB are pushing baby itch into baby rabies mode.

I confess I haven't washed my hair in 4 days and don't really feel like it. It's such a PITA when balancing on one leg. None of the chairs in this house allow me to sit in them and reach the sink. Poo!!

I confess that even though I am drowning in paperwork, having access to facebook and all other websites while at work does not equal productivity for me

I confess that I want a baby so much worse now that my nephew is here, and I'd already warned Nic about it

I confess that my desk is at a really terrible spot because the sun comes in through the blinds all afternoon and hits my ring and makes a million little sparkly spots dance all over the wall while I'm typing, which is more than a little distracting. I think I have ADHD and should have had therapy myself, when I get distracted by sparkly things, lol

I confess I feel like our house is NEVER going to be fully unpacked or organized because when I get home from work, I want to have dinner, relax, and spend some time with my fiance. While I'm at work, he sleeps. It's a never-ending cycle that is made worse by the fact that he even works weekends.

I confess that I've been in writing mode and haven't been on the board much this week. In fact, I just

ouch. I sure hope Tom gets all his ducks in a row, not only for his own sake, but for yours and Toby's as well.

I confess that I'm doing a happy dance right now.

I confess that it's all because I grabbed the wrong undergarments out of my drawer this morning. The undergarments that have been uncomfortable and cutting into my skin are now comfortable! (Sorry if that was TMI, folks, but if you've tugged at your undergarments all darn day, you know how exciting this is.)

I confess that noticing the added comfort made me look in the mirror, and I saw a difference.

I confess that I've lost only 4 pounds (2 this week), but I've lost much more than that before and have never been able to see

I confess I'm surprised that none of the school districts in the area are on delay. ( we had some snow yesterday leaving the roads very wet and temps in the teens) *sigh* off to work I go
