confessions.

Wednesday, May 9, 2012

I'm actually finding my ever growing list of confessions slightly embarrassing. I've been at this for quite awhile and one might think I'd be reaching the end of my shameful revelations, but {sadly} they'd be wrong. I have a smorgasbord of dirty little secrets just waiting to be shared; here's what made this week's cut...

- I have multiple jealous bones in my body. Some days I avoid the internet other blogs and Facebook at all costs. The perception of perfection makes me feel itty-bitty; I'm sorry but when have beautiful hair, great style, a spotless home, photogenic kids and no desire to watch reality tv, you're just asking for my eye daggers. Today I have a combination of writers envy and 'what-I-wouldn't-give-to-take-photographs-like-that' resentment. Check out this relatively new bloggess and tell me you wouldn't LOVE to write like her.

- Hi my name is Sara and I waste food. I know it's awful and trust me when I say I feel awful every time I throw away a half eaten carton of cottage cheese, but I just can't bring myself to eat anything past its expiry date. Not only do I have an aversion to aging food, I'm a total produce snob. In order to be palatable, my fruits & veggies need to be crisp and crunchy. I realize this 'hello garbage bin' philosophy is not financially or environmentally responsible and so my 1st food saving baby step will be applying Melissa's Pinterest tip to the strawberries in my fridge. Apparently vinegar mixed with water will extend the life of your berries... truth or lie? #staytuned.

- My second solo grocery shop with the kids was a success right up until check out when I accidentally clunked Gabe in the head with a can of mixed beans. I was wearing him in the baby bjorn and got a little carried with my cart unloading because all of a sudden I had one hysterical baby on my hands. I felt like the worst human being ever to grace Walmart especially when he did the silent cry - you know the one, where he quits breathing for a few seconds and then unleashes his fury on my ears {and the ears of 50 other horrified shoppers}. Poor kid can't catch a break; he must think food is out to get him, literally.

- I've always shied away from posting anything too political or too religious. I don't want to alienate or infuriate anyone and I'm much too self-absorbed to be an expert in either, church or state. Believe it or not, I've never received one negative comment {knock on wood} and probably wouldn't know how to defend myself if I did. With that being said, I'm going to say this because it is after all my blog. I support gay marriage and so does this guy...

Well that's it for me, but do check out E's blog for more mortifying confession posts. She's got a pretty impressive list of linker uppers and if you do pop over be sure to click on Jena's Journal and Casey @ First Time Wife - two of my favourite bloggy friends.

I TOTALLY support same-sex marriage too, yay Obama!!! I wish we had someone as cool running Canada.

Jena said...

Awe shucks, thanks for the shout-out!!

I'm with you when it comes to expired food. I don't know why I buy more than two apples at a time, the rest end up in the trash.

Ugh the dreaded silent cry, I hate that one!

p.s. I've been working on some obsessions for your next link up.

I'm the same with food. I am such a fooder-waster :( its terrible. At restaurants my eyes are always bigger than my tummy and I rarely eat more than 1/2 of what i order. Terrible.

Hazy Shades of Me said...

I tweeted on twitter and I outed you on facebook ;0) but I guess HERE is the best place to THANK YOU for your generous praise. I am humbled. Much appreciation, Sara K.

Casey said...

Thanks Lady! This post has made me love you even more!
I too have a photography jealousy bone. (I haven't bought a fancy camera because I am afraid my pictures will still look like poo and I won't be able to blame it on my point and shoot.)
2. I throw out an embarrassing amount of food. Um, how about 4 or 5 half eaten sour cream containers this Saturday.
3. I also avoid political posts like I avoid expired food, but YAY for Obama. Let people just love each other. In 20 years or so, people will look at gay marriage they way we look at bi-racial couples. My hubby is Hispanic, and I am whiter than Casper, but I couldn't imagine someone telling us we couldn't be together. Boo haters Boo.

Hello Sara K! Hazy Shades of Me linked me to your blog...I thank her for that. Loved your piece!! I say YES to gay marriage and YES to LOVE! You bravely stated your opinion and good for you (it is your blog after all, as you said). How kind of you to praise Hazy Shades of Me. I too enjoy her writing very much (proudly,I will confess Hazy is my daughter). I will now follow your blogs and share with others. Keep writing. Cheers! Irene.

I love the midweek confessions. Maybe I'll have to link up to this. I agree with the jealousy thing. I also sometimes have to avoid FB and blogs. Some peoples' lives just seem too perfect on the computer screen!

K. I get so intimidated of other blogs, when they all look perfect!

- I do the vinegar/water trick too. It works. Also, when they are starting to not look so pretty, I hull them and freeze them on a sheet. Now I have berries for smoothies or sauces.

- I hate solo shopping trips.
