Confession Friday

I confess that I am actually writing this on Thursday night.

I confess I got a Snuggie as a gift for my birthday this week and I love it! I'm wearing it as I type. I can type this confession while snuggled up all cozy and warm because my Birthday Snuggie has ARM HOLES!!!! I tell ya it is the gift that keeps on giving.

I confess I really want to see the next installment of Harry Potter but no one I know has read all the books or seen the other movies so I just may have to go by myself because this is one movie you have to see in the theatre.

I confess that I am not a Rider fan but will likely jump on the bandwagon this Sunday and watch the "big" game....hopefully this year "big" doesn't mean more than 12 players on the field! (Only Saskatchewanians will get this reference likely)

I confess this week I have had some people on my mind. People who have gone thru something no one should go through ever. My heart breaks for their loss and I send them love and strength.

I confess I have a friend on my mind who is dealing with something scary...as in the "C" word scary....I don't think anyone can imagine what it is like to hear those words...I send them love, strength and courage.

I confess when I was a kid I used to think being an adult would be so much easier....than I got to be an adult and realized I was really wrong.

I confess my two girlie cats, Suki and Sammi, are curled up next to me as write this and I love them to bits and can't believe they have been mine for over 13 years.

I confess tomorrow night we are going out with new friends and I am excited by the prospect of getting to know to them.

I confess my hubby and I are going to a mineral spa Saturday for the night and I am looking forward to floating in the warm water filled with minerals and letting the stress of our seemingly-endless wait slide off of me as I enter the water.

I confess it is time for me to go bed and rest my weary, red, and very puffy-from-crying eyes.

That is a tragedy that you don't know anyone to go to HP with. I know we've never met, but I would totally go with you if you wanted. :)

Hugs, Rana. Sending you love. I just can't believe you are still waiting. You should have babe in arms by now....when you do, how joyful we will all be for you!

The spa sounds like a great thing for the two of you this weekend. Rest your eyes, body, and try to relax with your husband. This will be over soon...just try to take care of yourself in the meantime.

Thinking of you all the time,
Mary

Hugs and more hugs, Rana.

And if you come to Calgary, I will go see Harry Potter with you. Just don't tell my sister, because she thinks I'm saving the first viewing for her. ;)

Big love being sent your way from PEI. Enjoy the spa and try to relax when you are there and then cuddle up with that hubby of yours.

Think of you always and would do anything for you....... seriously

Harry Potter was brilliant!!! A mineral bath also sounds divine. I'm thrilled to have found your blog as a fellow adoptive parent adopting from Ethiopia!

Rana,
I am so sorry that on top of everything you have going on in your life right now, others around you are going through hard times too. Sometimes it's almost worse when bad things are happening to those we love and now, you are having to deal with both.

I have never read a Harry Potter book or seen one of the movies, but if I lived closer, I'd go with you!

I hope the spa brings you ever a few minutes of relief from worry and stress.

Thanks for sharing what you are going through. I know that your honesty will help others.

Hi Rana,

I confess that I had to google what a snuggie was. I confess that if I owned one I might never leave my house again!
Hope your time with friends and a rejuvenating weekend away with Yvan brings some healing & joy.
Still believing in that happy ending for you all.
