confessions.

Wednesday, April 4, 2012


I'm going to just dive right in:

- Some most days I'm stark raving mad about my blog... jotting down post ideas, drafting entries in my head, writing THIS, but other days - like today for instance - I'm completely over it and ready for {SaigeWisdom} to take a long dirt nap. It's this love/hate relationship that keeps me from taking on paid sponsors.

- Out of only 10 entries I was a big fat BlogPodium Bound loser. I do believe this Tuesday morning discovery contributed to today's confession #1. I know I'm not a 'design blogger', but I not-so-secretly hoped that my sorry excuse for a mood board would have had me jet setting to Toronto to meet other Canadian blogettes and wear clothes that weren't made of fleece or covered in baby puke.   

- I'm not even the slightest bit excited about my 29th birthday next Monday. April may have the BEST birthstone, but for the past 10 years {aka "adulthood"} my birth month hasn't lived up to its diamond reputation. In university April 10th always fell smack in the middle of final exams and now that I'm married to a self-employed excavator operator, April is known as "tax month" instead of "Sara's birthday month". With the last of our winter savings going to Big Brother, there are rarely if any pennies left over for my rainy day birthday. 

- Becs is going to hate me for wishing this {I can feel the cyber daggers already}, but I'm silently hoping that my niece-to-be & I will be birthday twins. Hang on Baby O we only have one week to go.

- I haven't been running. Spring Break and the absence of a double jogging stroller has really put a damper on my couch to 5k learn-to-run program.

- All of a sudden I'm super annoyed by bloggers who don't reply to comments. I realize this makes me the biggest blogging hypocrite since only recently have I started responding to followers' feedback, but I've recognized the error - and sting - of my ways. Don't solicit comments if you're not going to communicate back #myopiniononly.

- I bite off more than I can chew all.the.time and I'm speaking both metaphorically and literally.

- Despite having a ridiculous amount of projects on the go, I still find time to watch multiple episodes of 'Dexter: Season One' on Netflix every night. Let it be known that Trev & I are decades behind when it comes to TV trends; at this rate we won't be raving about 'Mad Men' or 'Downtown Abbey' until 2022... can't wait!

- Other than children's books at Saige's bedtime, I haven't read a single page of fiction since October... Hunger Games? what is that?

- This is quite possibly the worst confession post in the history of confession posts. I apologize. I think Gabe's winge'ing and Saige's whining has rubbed off on me a bit {or maybe the opposite is true}. 


what are you pet peeving these days? I promise to respond if you comment ;)

Morning Sara, I am sitting here with a almost three year old on my knee and an 8 year old changing her outfit for the 3rd time (not sure how much cooler she is going to get) :) Probably out of all your blogs this is one of my favorites... because somedays when I am battling Jacob's sicknesses and Olivia's drama I feel like whinning and moaning (not sure if others will listen though). You give mothers like me a voice. Thank you. you make me feel relieved that you feel those things too. I think mothers get forgotten sometimes and I really hope that you have a fantastic birthday month - it is well deserved. All your followers will agree I am sure. hugs

#1 Watching tv shows at the time they air is so over rated...if it was normal to do so NetFlix wouldn't be so popular. Bobby and I just finished all 5 Dexter Seasons...in under three weeks!

#2 I hate birthdays because they will never live up to how amazing they were when I was a kid...when you become a mini celebrity at school and you don't have to worry about all the calories in your cake.

#3 Whats Fiction lol and isn't The Hunger Games a movie anyway...I mean whats the point?

That is all I got...my kids are climbing the walls...peace out ;)

I'm totally guilty of not responding to comments. I was so excited when I first figured out how to do it, and I genuinely LOVE reading comments, but I definitely fall behind on responding and get overwhelmed. Shame on me! :)

Always love your blog posts!

I am excited for your birthday....its exciting and your life is so amazing. YOu should be happy and celebrate with champagne and cake I think :)

I feel the same way about responding to comments. I can't figure out how to actually reply directly to the comment. I click on reply and nothing happens. I have tried different settings and nothing helps. So I just have to leave a seperate comment below but I don't think people ever come back to read them. I really need to figure this out.

Colleen said...

I can relate to several of these!! I think it's nice to reply back to comments. Granted I don't get THAT many but it's nice to hear back from someone.

My birthday is Christmas day so I know what it's like to have your special day/week over shadowed. I do want to encourage you to finsih the Couch to 5K. I did it a couple years ago, and it really helped turn me into a "runner." A slow one, but I have completed a couple long distance races since then.

The A and B Stories said...

Aw no!!! I was SO hoping you would be there!!! Well, I'll have to settle for hearing your hilarious confessions through the blog, not complaining!!! These are the best.

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

Aww you're so sweet - made me tear up you did which isn't that hard to do, but VERY appreciated. Three outfit changes before 7:14 am??? LOVE IT! diva in training - could give Beyonce a run for her money ;)

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

you make me feel so normal Fiona - that's why I heart you. Is it wrong that I'm secretly crushing on a serial killer? Dexter is just too cute.

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

haha you're forgiven because you at least give recognition to your loyal fans in the content of your posts + you get a lot of comments so we don't expect you to reply to every single one, but I've been following this one blog for 2+ years and am sometimes the ONLY person to comment and she NEVER responds... WTH?

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

thanks Ana - I'm thinking a carrot cake with cream cheese icing will do the trick. I actually got my mustache necklace in the mail yesterday which felt like an early birthday present from Blue Bird Kisses.

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

If I follow a blog regularly, I ALWAYS check back on old posts to see if I received a response. I'll try to remember how I added the reply feature and get back to you. xo

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

oh you will ;)

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

you share a birthday with Jesus?! how cool. I definitely want to try the couch to 5K again... after all "learning to run" was a 2012 goal of mine. do you go morning, afternoon or evening?

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

I KNOW! I'm devastated - wanted to curl into the fetal position and cry. One day we can be like real friends and share a hot bevy and some actual conversation... if I type it, it WILL happen.

The A and B Stories said...

Yes!!!! Can't wait ;)

Morgan said...

I was nodding along with so many of your confessions! I am an Aries girl too (April 8th!) and I think the hot/cold blogging is a symptom of our passionate yet impulsive ways :) I seem to go all or nothing on my blog, and I need to be more consistent, especially because I have paid sponsors!

As for replying to comments, I have been trying to get better at that too, Disqus seems to help!

Happy Birthday on the 10th!

Danielle Hardy said...

I LOVE this!! please never stop being REAL!! oh and I hope you don't think I'm a snobby blogger :( I do comment back but I don't know if it notifies you that I wrote back. you know? maybe somebody can teach me :)
