It’s been almost three months since I participated in a good old fashioned confessions link-up. Three months!
… that I was originally scheduled to recap day three of our NYC trip from 2012 today (you can see the first posts here and here) but it was just too involved, so I bailed to do this post instead. Stay tuned, it’s coming!
… that I feel like I’ve been in a funk these last couple of weeks. I pretty much always get in some kind of funk in January and February but the funk this year seems to be worse than usual. #GetMeOut
… that Olivia transitioning to the toddler bed has been a pretty big disaster. We just can’t get her to stay in it and it seems like she’s scared of her entire room now since we changed it. The first two nights, Brian laid on the floor in her room until she fell asleep and it took almost an hour each night. An hour. Ugh. Tuesday night we had finally had enough of that as we don’t want to get in a bad habit of staying in there every night, so we bribed her with some new princess underwear… we told her if she will stay in the bed and fall asleep by herself each night for the rest of the week that she can have some new ones this weekend (she is currently in need of some anyway). This bribery worked the first night, so we’ll see how the remaining nights go and then hopefully it will stick? In addition to the not staying in the bed at bedtime, she has also taken to creeping in our room and getting into bed with us around 3 AM every night since then, too. However, instead of sleeping, she would prefer to party, so needless to say, none of us have gotten much sleep this week. #SendWine
… that due to the lack of sleep this week, I finally took some Nyquil to help me Tuesday night. I am still sick, so it’s not like I’m just taking it for the sleeping qualities, but I could probably get by without it if it weren’t for that. #NyquilSevere,ILoveYou #WhoUsesACommaInAHashtag?
… that since I’ve been so tired in the morning lately, I’ve been reading my daily devotional each night instead of first thing in the morning like I wanted to do for my New Year’s resolutions. While I would rather start the day with the devotional, this last week it has been more important to get sleep. At least I’m still reading it, though, right?
… that I got an email for Jacob’s school registration for the 2017-2018 school year about a week ago and I have yet to do anything with it. He’s obviously staying where he is no question about it, but I dread doing the paperwork every year because it takes so. flipping. long.
… that I “like” all of my own Instagram photos… is that weird?? I’m not necessarily doing it for the extra “like,” it’s just that I’ll be scrolling through my feed and “liking” the other pictures, so when I see my own photo I have the compulsive need to “like” my own picture since I “liked” all of the others. Haha. #OCDToTheMax #TellMeImNotAlone
… that I’ve never seen an entire Hallmark Christmas movie, nor do I want to. The acting is bad and they are just so cheesy, and I’m sure they’re all predictable, too, so why bother? My mom, on the other hand? She lives for them! #RomanticToTheCore
… that I also can’t stand any movies that make me think weird… anything about psychos or murderers or ghosts or aliens or anything like that is not for me. When I was little, Flight of the Navigator scared the ever-loving crap out of me. All I could think about was what if that happened to me? The real world is bad enough… why do I need to see made up bad stuff?? #SunshineAndRainbowsOverHere
… and speaking of movies, I also can’t stand the old 80’s movies that everyone loves – Sixteen Candles, Back to the Future, Dirty Dancing, Ghostbusters, Teen Wolf, The Breakfast Club… they bore me to absolute tears. #BlasphemyIKnow #ButGiveMe90sMoviesAnyDay
… oh, and do not get me started on E.T. He is terrifying and that movie is just about as depressing as it gets. #AndFunFactThatMovieAndIShareABirthYear
On that note, I think I’ll go edit some pictures from our NYC trip, do Jacob’s registration paperwork, “like” some of my own Instagram photos, chug some Nyquil Severe, and watch a raunchy comedy like This is 40… those are my cup of tea these days! #GettingOld #ButNotCloseTo40 #Yet
