Friday Confessions




  • I keep secrets. However, most of them eventually make it to confessions.
  • I didn't do confessions last Friday because I was in Denver...keeping a big secret. ☺
  • I type LOL when I'm really not LOLing. I mean, LOL is supposed to stand for laughing out loud, but yet I type it when I'm not really laughing out loud. Don't get me wrong, I'm usually laughing in my head or maybe a quiet snicker. Maybe I should type LAL (laughing a little) or LIMH (laughing in my head)? Not quite as catchy.
  • I talk too much. Have I said this one before? If so, bare with me. You know how most people will just type a line or two in comments, well not me...no sir...I type a book or at least a chapter of a book. I also send really long text messages and I never have a phone call with a friend shorter than 20 minutes. If there was a contest for talking, I would actually probably do really well...I would at least place.

  • I'm bossy. I find myself "directing" people A LOT. If I've bossed you around recently, I'm sorry.

  • I write blogs and never post them. They sound good as I'm typing them, but then I start thinking who in the world would want to read that? I find myself quite self-conscious in the blogging world.
  • When no one reads my blogs or comments on them, I feel like NO ONE loves me. (Y'all just remember that my therapist is on speed dial) For some insane reason it's like my blog is a personal reflection of me. SO, therefore, if people don't read my blog or comment on it, then they must not like me. There are days I feel like I have the plague or something...like I'm repelling people. I know. I have issues. I can't even believe I'm confessing this. It's totally embarrassing.
  • On the other hand, a whole bunch of comments on my blog can totally turn my day around. I'm not even kidding. I'm pathetic.
  • Have I told you that my Christmas tree is still up? Well, Michael told me not to tell ANYBODY (but I don't think that meant you guys). Don't worry, we don't turn the lights on or anything like that. He suggested that we could turn it into a Valentine's Day or Easter tree. I'm sure that was totally a joke. He actually said he thought about staging an intervention. What is it with me and people thinking they need to intervene? I do have a good excuse. I went to Denver last weekend, remember? If I had been home, I would have taken it down. Really. I swear.

See, aren't you glad you came and "sat a spell" and read my totally-pathetic-ridiculous-and-self-absorbed confessions? Feel better? I thought so.

Happy Friday.

Jen....Jen....Jen....

I know what you mean about comments....until I realized there are so many times that I pop into a blog just to stay up w/ it...and don't have time to comment....so, I still feel the love when I look at my counter. LOL, LIMH....really!!

Now the tree thing is an ISSUE....either decorate it for Valentine's or put it on the porch...or yard...maybe it will look like a REAL tree...and the neighbor's won't notice.

Did you get my email about google? Just put in your address and when the map pops up, click street view......SCARY!!!

Have a great weekend!!! I get to photoshoot a wedding....I'm sooooo scared!!!!

You completely crack me up! I feel the same way about the comments...but really, nobody DOES love me! I have like 4 comments total! I wonder if it has anything to do with me never updating? Hmmm?!

Yes, I feel like I'm back in high school at times. You want people to like you but the only way you know if they like you is for them to leave comments! (Of course that's not usually true). I hate that! And I really hate when I post something and HOURS go by until I get my first comment! I'm like to the point of deleting the flippin' blog out of embarrassment and shame and then I get a comment and I feel much better. I should see my therapist about this issue too.

Okay...JK...YOU.NEED.TO.TAKE.DOWN.THE.TREE.NOW. *I'm yelling so you hear me, not that I'm angry, ok?*

So I LOVE your LIMH suggestion. I think I'll steal that and use it. Isn't that the truth, tho? Do we REALLY LOL at everything when it's funny? I don't...but I do IMH!! I frequently laugh in my head. That could be part of my problems though...hmmm..

Thanks so much! I'll be sure to tell you all about it! :)
I'm self conscious about blogging too! You're not alone! But we love hearing what you have to say! :)
Hugs,
Shilo

I just love your long book comments!! Maybe you should schedule an intervention and have your husband take down the tree, mine did!!

Liz said...

Thanks for coming over and visiting my blog. I love new blogging friends.

You are too funny! I have been accused once or twice (okay a thousand times) that I talk way too much. Oh well, maybe I have lots to say.

The Christmas is still up? Oh my, well, it'll be time for it again soon anyway. Especially the way time flies!

LOL! Your Christmas tree is STILL up?!? I'm sure you have a good excuse... having an awesome time in Denver being one of them. =)
I want to see some of your "unposted" posts!
