True Confession Friday

This is my closet this morning.
How pitiful and messy is that?

I ate cake for dinner last night.
Granted it was Weight Watchers Celebration Cake, but it was CAKE.
Cake for dinner.
(Just so you know, I did feed my family a normal, non-cake meal)

I've only been to the gym twice this week.
Only twice and my 20th high school reunion is in a month and a half.

I bought some M&M's to use in a recipe.
The other night- in a stress induced haze- I opened the bag and began to eat them.
And eat them.
And eat them.
And eat them.
The sad thing is................I really don't even like M&M's.
So finally I knew that if I didn't do something drastic, I was going to eat the whole stinkin bag. So I took the bag to Honey and said..........
"I don't care what you do with these, but do something with them so that I will stop eating them."
And bless his sweet heart, he just took them, smiled and said
"Sure Honey".

I have not been doing a good job this week keeping up with sweeping my beautiful new floors. As a result, there is enough dog hair under the couch and in the corners of my living room to make a small dog.
Maybe even a medium sized dog.
And because I can't stand to see all that yucky hair, in the evenings I have only been turning on one lamp in the living room and I try not to look down so I can pretend it isn't there.

I am so thankful that.....................

Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.

They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.

Lamentations 3:22-23

  1. You are such a crack up. At least you can see some floor in your closet. Mine is littered with clothes and stuff.

    Cake for dinner every now and then is good for you.

    As far as the hair on the floor, I didn't even notice it. As long as you don't notice the cat hair on the extra diningroom chair that always seems to be inhabited by the cat. ;)

  2. YOU make me laugh, thanks for keeping it REAL!!!! Hey, I wanna get together and chat with you real soon... :-)


  3. You just confessed to being just like the rest of us.


  4. Hey I have an idea.... come to my house and spend a few days. I PROMISE you will NOT feel bad about the state of YOUR house any longer. Really.

    You'll see your house in an ALL NEW light. :o)

    And cake for dinner ROCKS!

  5. You're too cute.

    I can so relate to your "confessions." I don't like M&Ms all that much either... but in a momentary lapse in judgement, I could see myself mowing through a bag of them as well!

  6. Wasn't it Erma Bombeck that said eat dessert first, life is too short? Welcome to the human race, hon. It happens to all of us from time to time. For me it is trail mix. I love the crunchies! And yes we can see your floor so it isn't all that bad!

  7. It's so nice to know you're normal...just like the rest of us. :o) (((HUGS)))

  8. I agree with the others who say that you're just being normal. Try not to beat yourself up too much. :-)
