[Thoughts on Thursday] Confessions

Thursday, January 7, 2016

It's a new year which means a new round of confessions!


... that I HATE when people don't return their shopping carts to the cart return. And almost always, I find them RIGHT next to the cart return. I mean, really? Have we become that lazy of a society that we can't walk a couple feet to be polite and return our carts? Just the other day I saw a lady walk in the opposite direction and drop her cart in the middle of a parking space, when I'm pretty sure if she had just gone the other way, it would have been closer to return the cart to its proper destination. I always try to park close to the shopping cart return just to make sure I can return cart.

... that I've started using a potato masher to make guacamole (smash the avocado) and it works amazingly! I may never go back to using a fork again!

... that I haven't fully finished recapping our Disney cruise... from back in October. I still need to blog Days 5 and 6.

... that I bought Mason those cute Cars bandaids as a stocking stuffer last year because I thought they'd be cute if he got a boo-boo. I think I used 99% of them on myself. Oddly enough, he doesn't really ever get cuts that he needs bandaids for (knock on wood) and he doesn't seem to overly have an affection for them either (in the playing sense or in the necessity sense) so he really doesn't even care that they are cute and Cars. I wear them by choice because I think they're cute and I'm not even embarrassed to say that.

... speaking of boy mom things, like Cars bandaids, when I was doing my recap of Day 3 on our cruise, I literally did not know who the princess from Tangled was. In fact, I asked Seth what her name was and HE actually knew! He clearly would make a better girl dad then I would girl mom! Wow. I am so far removed from anything princess that I don't even know their names. Please don't give me a test, I will surely fail (unless it's a movie from my childhood!).

... that I hate that people don't get caught for breaking the rules. More specifically, but not limited to, not paying their car registration, not obeying the hands free talking on the cell phone law, and not paying for their mortgage. How do people get away with not paying for their car registration? Sure it's a $200 bill that I'd prefer not to pay either, but I assume that somehow catches up with you eventually, right? How do people think that holding their cell phone mere inches from their mouth is "hands free"? I'm not saying I'm perfect or I don't talk on the phone in the car, but I ALWAYS put it on speaker phone and put the phone on my lap when I'm driving. And also... how do people get away with not paying their mortgage? Like you can not pay for months and months and they don't kick you out of your house (I mean eventually, but it's really EVENTUALLY... later rather than sooner)? I'm pretty sure I'd get kicked out for not paying my rent on time after one month.

... that Mason fell asleep in the car on the way to the mall the other day so I had this genus idea to use the stroller. I thought that I could lift him out of his car seat and that he would fall back asleep in the stroller if we reclined it. I was wrong. But we kept him in the stroller anyway (because he loves it, even though he is WAY too big for it). I had to use the bathroom so I took Mason in with me and as the door hit the stroller and the lady behind me didn't help me at all and I struggled to get the stroller in the door, I think I solidified the fact that we will only have one kid. I DO NOT MISS USING THE STROLLER.

... that when I look at how many pictures I have on my camera roll, I get overwhelmed.

... that I'm pretty sure that I'm not fun anymore. And I'm 100% ok with it! For New Year's Eve we went over to some friends house, had dinner, had a couple drinks, and were home and in bed by 10:30pm (and that's late for us!). I'd much rather have a couple drinks with friends at home and not be hung over the next day than go out partying and feel awful the next day. After all, the wake up calls come much earlier these days than they used to back in college.

...speaking of being unfun... I can get a text at 6am and respond right away, but text me past 9:30pm and don't expect a response until the next morning. I'm almost 100% for sure asleep on the couch by then.

And one more (with a picture) to leave you on...

... that I'm embarrassed to say that I hadn't checked on Mason's extra clothes situation at school in a while. He has a cubby with a couple extra shirts, a couple extra pairs of pants, and an extra sweatshirt in case he gets dirty or whatever at school and needs to change. Well, I hadn't checked in a while, and I guess all that he had in there were size 2T pants a couple weeks ago when he needed to change. Now, don't worry, they still fit...


... in the waist but definitely not in the length!!! LOL. He looked like he was waiting for a flood! Crazy boy can fit into a size 2T pants in the waist but needs 4T pants for the length. He's going to be tall and skinny, that's for sure!!

And there you have it! Can you relate to any of my confessions?

  2. Oh girl I hear ya. I have a rule with myself to always return the cart when shoppin and many times I grab a bunch more as I do. Ugh! I also feel like there are so many people out there who should be pulled over but I never see a police officer when others are crazy on the road. I'm annoyed, not with the officer but that people who re doing wrong go unpunished.

  3. Yes I can! I can't stand when people don't return their carts either!!! In fact, I will go out of my way to grab a couple as I go to return mine. I wish I could be the cart police and fine them as I see them ditch them. :-) I related to other confessions too, but clearly that is the one that resonated the most, haha!!

  4. Growing up is so unfun haha. We never used Aria's stroller unless we were at Disney! More of a hassle than anything, but definitely a need at Disney. It's okay you can just babywear if you have another =)

  5. YOU DON'T KNOW THE PRINCESSES?!?!?! We watch ALL of the Disney movies even the Princess and fairy ones, mainly because my kiddos love the animals and they are mysteriously mostly in the princess movies. I agree with you I CAN NOT handle the cart thing. I always gather the carts to get them put back! And don't worry you could be like me and not have blogged in MONTHS! My kids still had summer clothes in their cubbies at school...oops! XOXO!

  6. Those highwater pants! HAHAH! I'm totally not fun anymore either. I tried to go out for a younger coworker's birthday this fall, and I was like, dude, I can't keep up. I barely drink. We were home for NYE watching football and I was totally fine with that.

  7. Some high waters on the poor boy! Ha!

    I must confess that I bought myself some Avengers bandaids a while ago & I'm just waiting for that one papercut that will need to be covered by Ironman. Tee hee!

  8. SO guilt of some high water pants over here... I JUST went through both babes closets though because it was getting a little ridiculous. Now I think Rae has two good pairs of jeans.

    and the bandaids were the best stocking stuffer we gave Rae haha! She asks WAY too often so we had to hide them ;)

  9. Ha! All of Reed's pants look like that. We have the same spread over here. Maybe even an 18Month/4T spread. I constantly think that I should start a line of clothes for skinny kids, but then I never do...because that sounds hard. Someone should do it though and I'd totally shop there!

  10. lol oh my goodness!!! That picture has me cracking up!!! My husband purposely buys pants that way so needless to say, I do his shopping. lol
    You & me both with the stroller business and no one holding the door. Sure, I'll navigate my way indoors with a preschooler, baby in a stroller, and still hold the door open for you. The shopping carts on the other hand...I'm a non-returner sometimes. I'll admit it. My husband will run across the parking lot to put the buggy up though. ha!

  11. Oh gosh I'm horrible at updating the bag of extra clothes for Noah. Though I worry more about wrong season than wrong size ;). And I hate to admit that when I have Noah I'm bad at returning the cart. Many of our supermarkets don't even have corrals in the lot so you'd have to return to the front of the store. And I've learned I'm no longer fun either. Text me after 9:30 and I'm totally asleep!

  12. The shopping cart thing drives me nuts too! Esp if the cart is left in the middle of a sparking spot. Ah! I usually try to leave the cart in the store and carry all my bags just so that I don't have to worry about putting it away. And how rude of that lady to not help you with the door!

  13. I have a friend who instead of paying off her medical debt decided to write letters claiming "financial distress". What the total Hell? You aren't distressed if you are taking vacations and such! You just don't want to use the money for adult things, you'd rather have fun. Wouldn't we all? While I love her dearly, I was a bit peeved. I mean, how can you live with not paying your bills?!

    ReplyDelete
  14. These are cracking me up!!! I feel the exact same way. Rule breakers make me mad because gauranteed if I was tardy on ANY bill, Id get caught ASAP- whats up with that?! Also, what brought that up? Any juicy story?! ;) I always rock kid band aids, no shame to our mom game.

  15. I can relate to the pants issue, my son is the exact same way. We always have the waist band tightened to the tightest spot. I just bought him a bunch of 5T pants and I noticed that if he grows one more inch, we'll have to go up to 6T, which I'm fairly certain that we're not going to be able to tighten it enough so they don't fall down, haha! Love our tall skinny kids :) Love this I confess, going to steal it for a rainy day. :)

  16. Ok, so many things.

    I also HATE the cart thing and purposely park near the cart return at the store. It annoys me so much I sometimesfix the carts that are in there. My grocery storehas several types of carts and people just put them wherever!

    Also, your car registration is $200!!!?? Ours is like $48 for a year. Crazy.

    And I'm not fun anymore either. ;)

  17. we are totally soul mates. if only because we both love to return shopping carts.

  18. YES!!! 2259 photos in my Camera Roll right now and like 15 other folders of photos. Ughhh! I can't let go of pictures for some reason. And I have totally been there before with not checking the extra clothes situation. And yes to returning the darn cart. Quit being lazy, people!!!!

  21. I seriously know everything I need to know about a person by the fact alone that they don't return their cart to the cart return.

    Your car registration is $200?! Remind me not to move to California.
