Friday Confessions


I have three words for you...tree IS down! Yes, that's right. My Christmas tree is finally down and I no longer have to confess to you my tardiness in dismantling my holiday decor. I know. You probably are thanking me for this, because I'm sure you are tired of reading about the stupid girl who still has her Christmas tree up...that gets old.

Last night I got an envelope in the mail, like a for real handwritten card...I love getting those. Since we e-mail, text, IM, and comment people so much; it's like we forget how to send a personal hand written card. In my mail yesterday, was a card from a few of my favorite people (Melissa, Michelle, and Gabe)...this is the confession part...along with the card was a package of Twilight trading cards. I was ecstatic! Seriously, it was as if I had been given some expensive gift. I ripped open the package as fast as I could in hopes of finding my very own Edward...no such luck. However, I did get a really awesome scene shot with Alice and a character card w/ Bella. So, it's all good! Anyone have any they would like to trade? What...are you trying to tell me that I'm the only one who trades Twilight cards?

I have an issue. I hate when people tell me what to do. It's a fault...I realize this. None the less, that's me. It's like someone says "do this" and deep inside I just want to do "that". "Jennifer, it's illegal to steal street signs"...done, one stolen street sign. I've pretty much been this way my whole life. Now, sometimes it's to my benefit...when people tell me I can't, I instinctively feel like "YES I can....watch me." However, sometimes it's probably my biggest downfall. Don't eat fried food...french fries are my friend. Too much coffee in one day is bad for you...uh, OK...as I'm drinking my third coffee of the day. You shouldn't break the speed limit...I've always felt that 5-7 mph over the speed limit is totally acceptable. I see a No U Turn sign and it's all that I can do to just drive past without flippin' a U-e. You know those signs on emergency doors: "Do not open door, alarm will sound"...I so want to push those doors. When I was younger, and my mom would put words on the bad list...like I couldn't say shut up, crap, dang, butt, fart...the list goes on and on...those words immediately crept into my vocabulary and I would just sneak them in whenever possible. What can I say, I was a brat, plus I always liked to get the "Jennifer Katherine!" statement. I hate it when people make general statements like, oh I don't know....I'll just pick some random statement...like "Everyone should turn off their auto playlists on their blogger pages." (which was an exact post on Twitter the other day) Well, I just get this defiance that rages inside me and wants to turn up my playlist as loud as I can.


Good thing my therapist is on speed dial.


Happy Friday! ☺

Well, I'm sure you were thrilled when I "yelled" at you for facebooking while DRIVING!! OMG! You're a crazy non-rule following little brat aren't ya! (Meeee tooo!! Hehehehe)

Mom2Toribug said...

Oh no!! I am a very nonbendable rule follower. I will follow it if it is the death of me. I am almost OCD about following rules!!!! It drives me crazy when someone else doesn't follow the rules. Now, I will say that don't always OBEY the speed limit and once I got a paddling in school when I wasn't supposed to be talking and I got caught talking. That is the one and only paddling I ever got. Maybe that is when I started being OCD about the rules.
I am in the midst of book #4, but I am just now hearing about the trading cards. From you! Where do you get them?

Congrats on getting the Christmas tree down. I've been meaning to clean out my closet for 4 months and I finally did it yesterday. It feels so good!

Have a great weekend.

Okay, you know we are WAY too much alike...it must be because of our upbringing. I HATE being told what to do!! I know, you're sitting there, in shock! lol! And, um, hello?! Twilight trading cards? Where have I been? Remember when we use to buy baseball cards from the candy cart? lol! So glad the tree is down!! And I have a confession of my own...I have YET to read the last Twilight book!
