Midweek Confessions

It's been a little while since I've linked up with e for a Midweek Confession. So, here we go.

*I'm not really looking forward to the holidays this year. Riley won't be with me for Thanksgiving or Christmas. I have some major changes taking place right after Christmas (details coming soon, I promise!). My family is spread (literally) all across the county and we aren't getting together for Christmas (insert super-sad, puppy-dog face here) and I just feel a little Scrooge-y. However, on Christmas Day the new Les Miserables movie comes out and I will be there to see it (even if I have to sit in a dark movie theater by myself on Christmas that sounds pathetic sad!). So, the girl that is usually filled with Christmas spirit by the time Halloween rolls around is all "Bah-humbug" and is only looking forward to Christmas because of a movie.

*When the Packers are on a bye week I feel a little lost. Yep, I'm so in love with Green Bay football that I don't know what to do with myself when they don't play. Last Sunday was their bye week and I was sad. I am glad that they had a week to get healthy, but no Clay Matthews on the tv does not make me smile.

*I felt very melancholy and angsty earlier this week so I baked 7 dozen cookies and made s'more krispie treats. I felt better. I split the cookies between work and my sister and took the s'more krispie treats to Bible Study. I don't generally eat the things that I bake, but I will admit that the cookies were really good! Now I just have to decide what I'm baking for Thanksgiving.

*Riley's new favorite song is "King of New York" from Newsies and I couldn't be happier about it. In case you have never heard of Newsies it is a 1992 Disney musical about the newsies (paperboys) strike of 1899 in New York City. It stars Batman Christian Bale. It is my favorite movie ever and I strongly suggest you watch it immediately.

I suppose that's about it for this week. You should write your own confessions, it's good for the soul and all that.



  1. I want you to come to Christmas at my house -- I'll even go see Le Mis with you! :) Thanks for keeping it real girl! (If these were my confessions, I would have eaten all 7 dozen cookies myself. THAT is what I do when I'm anxious.)

    1. E,
      I bet Christmas at your house is so fun! And I would be in heaven playing with Sam (I love babies!).

  2. I can so relate to your melancholy about the Packers not being on TV for a week. When Sex and the City went off the air, I felt like I was losing my 4 best friends and when I finished watching Season 6 of Dexter I really missed seeing my boyfriend's face ;)

    If you ever want to send your baking up to Canada - I'm your girl.

    1. Sara,
      I hate finishing up seasons of tv shows that I really like, it really is like losing your best friends!
