Confession Friday

I confess I am listening to Christmas music this morning while I work..."Pink Martini" singing beautiful Christmas Classics.

I confess my husband and I are addicted to "Mad Men" - we are savouring Season 4 because it is a long time to Season 5.

I confess to feeling better today because yesterday someone gave me permission to let my worries go for a while and it was needed because I wouldn't give myself permission and it was crippling me.

I confess to being proud of knowing some very strong, brave women who speak their truths even when they are doubtful anyone is reading or cares.

I confess to still being in my pajamas while I am working.

I confess it is frickin' cold here today (-25, -33 with the windchill) and I wish I lived somewhere warm with a beach right now.

I confess I am going to lunch today with 2 of my co-workers who I don't get to see because I work at home now and I am looking forward to it.

I confess I made my first ever stew yesterday and it turned out pretty good...used bison meat and red wine in the ingredients and let it simmer in the crock pot all day..mmmmmmm!

I confess to not going to the gym very much in the last week and when I went yesterday I felt stronger for it.

I confess I have finally come to the realization "the best laid schemes of mice and men/ go oft awry" is actually true and I don't like it one bit.

I confess the above realization has humbled me and made me realize not all is within my control.

I confess I could go on and on today as I feel like confessing but I will stop now.

I confess that I have been wanting to listen to Christmas music, but know it would make my husband crazy before December 1 (that's the "rule"... no lights or music before December 1). I confess I've been bending those a bit and have turned the lights on a few times... don't think I'll push my luck with the music... Ok, well, probably I actually will (you'be motivated me!). Enjoy lunch, have a great weekend. A

Could you let me know the name of your MP so I could bug *my* MP.... my MP rocks, and even though I'm in a different province, I don't mind being the squeaky wheel at all.

Thank you.

And that stew might be incentive enough for me to come and visit. Hmmm, stew for dinner...must go and see if the bison is still on sale.

I have a beach but it isn't that warm here either.... but tropical compared to there.

I confess I don't read others blogs that much anymore. I am so removed from the process that it makes it easier for me to survive.

Sorry friend. L

BISON??? SERIOUSLY??? That is the coolest thing I've heard in like, ever.

No wonder I'm so grumpy. It is frickin' cold out and I was dumb enough to run errands this morning! Glad you're feeling a bit better today and that you've given yourself permission to let go of your worries a bit. Enjoy your lunch out - looking forward to seeing you tomorrow. :)

I'm glad you are feeling better. Sometimes you just have to do some "normal" things that you enjoy and get outside your head a little bit, and you are right -- it IS hard to give yourself permission to do that sometimes.

I made stew yesterday too. In the crock pot. Comfort food... mmmmmmm.

Red wine just goes so well with red meat. Try using it next time you make a roast too. Heavenly.

There's something kind of fun about reading someone's "confessions".....

Al and I watched all 4 seasons of Mad Men in less than a month. Confession: the house was a disaster!

Hey Rana, I'm glad you've found a little bit of relief the last couple of days.

As others have said, I am willing to write to my MP (who was/is involved with the Standing Committee on Citizenship and Immigration) to put some pressure on your MP. Please let me know if I can help!
