Ahhh Friday Confessionals

  • There truly is something I love about Friday Confessionals...
  • Maybe it's the chance to vent, to just let it all out there
  • or my chance to write with bullets
  • and start a new one-mid sentence if I want to.
  • Which my husband thinks is funny/weird...
  • but when I write these I really am just sitting down and writing uncensored
  • well okay-semi censored I do go back and reread and fix typos and spelling
  • I don't want to look like a complete moron.
  • But these are probably the closest posts to the true craziness in my head
  • with thoughts that seem to change a million miles a
  • (that's for you CA Girl)
  • minute.
  • And lately the craziness has been needing a lot of self talk back into normalcy and happiness.
  • I think more than a month of rarely seeing my husband, a least one person being sick this entire time, and now finding out that we are moving to one of those places that I once drove through and said:
  • -in my most sarcastic voice-'oh there is a place I want to live'- has taken its toll.
  • Now I am not writing all this so you can all say, poor you
  • though let's be honest we all like to be coddled every once in a while
  • but just because venting is so cathartic for me.
  • once I get it out I can usually move on and be done with it.
  • it's when it all stays inside and I get so much crazy self talk that problems begin to occur.
  • I seriously am feeling better as I write this
  • I guess I should be one of those people with a junk journal where I can just write it all down and throw it away or better yet burn it
  • but I don't have one, so instead it all gets to come vomiting out on you on Fridays!
  • so I am just going to stop now and go eat my last Reese's Peanut Butter cup and wish you all a happy weekend!


  1. Is your hubby back? If not, hope he comes back soon. Hope everyone gets better soon--the coughing around our house right now is epic.
    Enjoy that Reese's cup. Chocolate--yum!

  2. Bummed for you about not seeing much of your hubby :-( It makes time seem to drag.

    I thought just the other day that perhaps I need a junk journal (because I too feel so much better after venting my words and thoughts into visual form) but honestly, if someone else doesn't read it.. I just don't feel as much better. For some weird reason I feel like someone... anyone really... needs to read my word vomit. Glad it helps you cope with anxious thoughts by getting them out! Do what works!

    Sickness has been horrible this season. Sounds like for everyone! I hope everyone in your house is working their way to well!

    Try not to think about the negative parts of the move (even though that is impossible!). Everything will fall right into place and be fine. How quick is the move? I hope it is a smooth move and transition.

    Happy Friday!

  3. I have never considered it a junk journal, but I do keep a journal for when I need to get it ALL out. I consider it my letters to God. Things I need Him to handle, because it is driving me insane.

    Happy Friday!

  4. i really like the way you write your confession. Hope everyone gets felling better soon. And that hubby is back home. Sorry about the move. That can be hard... but sometimes places like that can really surprise you.

    Hope you have a great weekend!

  5. Thanks for the SQUIRREL I really needed the laugh this morning. :)

  6. Your "squirrel" is my "shiny object" : ) Friday Confessional is good for the soul isn't it?!?! Who needs a junk journal when you've got a blog!!! Have a good weekend.

  7. Wishing you a wonderful weekend. Save me a Reese's, won't you? :)

  8. Sorry about your month! I can only imagine how stressful that would be! Where are you moving to, if I may ask?

  9. Okay ... first I'm going to ignore the fact that you didn't offer me one of your Reese's ... I mean they are my complete favorite *cries*

    And now that I'm over that, I'm sorry to hear about all the yuckiness ... the husband being gone, the sickness and the moving ... however I am curious where/when you're moving!!

    Take care and enjoy your Friday!

  10. See? Blogging out your confessions is cheap therapy! I love it too!

  11. I agree Reese's and blogging is the best therapy. Hope you have a great weekend.

  12. So, did you not really say you know where you're moving??? or am I the only one who caught that?? WHERE are you moving to??? And when???

  13. MMmmmm. Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.

    Sorry, I'm easily distracted.

    Hope this week is an improvement!

    Have a great weekend!

  14. I dont' think I have even one whole post without at least one incomplete sentence. It's not that I don't know how, I just choose not to. There's a difference.

  15. Where is this crappy place to which you're moving?

  16. Oh girl...there is something so FUN about writing confessions. I love yours!
    Now, where is this place you are moving? Must be My town?!

  17. i 100% agree that sometimes just getting it out helps me to move on. and since i am a nut and compose both my Friday Confessional and My Happy List posts throughout the week. i add, i delete, and a lot of times by the time it is suppose to go live on my blog i am over it.

  18. I had to go back and reread the SQUIRREL twice before I got it...I'm easily confused!

    Friday Vomit? Is there a new linky in there somewhere.

    Enjoy your RPB cup and have a great weekend!

  19. Where are you moving to? And when? I am trying to plan a San Diego trip! I was thinking of some things to confess about the other day but now I can't remember what they were! LOL

  20. Wow, you sound like you are living my life. I mean the never getting to see your hubby, and then someone being sick all. of. the. time.
    I am sorry you aren't happy about your move (where?). That is always the pits. But look on the bright side. There are many friends waiting for you that you haven't met yet! That is what makes moving so exciting for me. And all the new experiences. Yay! Good luck.

  21. Since I'm just getting caught up, and starting at the top and scrolling down, I already know that you're not moving to THAT place anymore, or I would try to give you words of comfort.
    Instead, I'll say YAY for not moving to a place that you could easily nickname barf stew!
