Confession Friday

I confess it felt good to write the "Loss" post the other day. If for no other reason, than I have never really openly admitted my loss issues.

I confess Blogger had some "maintenance issues" on Wednesday and lost posts from a certain time of day. It is ironic the post of mine which was lost was a post on loss.

I confess I have decided to parent a la "Modern Family" whilst living in "Cougar Town" because then I could drink red wine all day and drive around in a golf cart. I could be proud of my parenting/relationship fails because Phil and Claire do it so humorously and I want to be just like them. But I don't like red wine so instead of that I would drink Sangria all day. I would still drive around in the golf cart because, HELLO, that would be F. U. N.

I confess now I want to make a giant pitcher of Sangria and sit in the backyard sunning myself. Of course I will be wearing the appropriate SPF so as not to burn.

I confess the wee boy and I had a fabulous morning. Started out by having a dance party to Michael Franti. Then loaded up in the stroller and stopped off at a local bakery to purchase some delectable treats and headed to the park for a picnic!

I confess it is one week until our trip out west. I am looking forward to seeing my momma and family. A little bit dreading the packing and flight.

I confess I went for my first Homeopathic treatment this week. She was great. Did her mystical mojo magic and had me sip various potions while giving her numbers between 1 and 12. Then blended up a heavenly concoction for me to put into 2 cups of water and sip throughout the day. I am to do this daily and so far...IT IS WORKING!

I confess I have started into perimenopause and let me tell you...the fun has begun...if this is only the percursor to then I am afraid of what menopause will bring.

I confess I did a really hard workout on Tuesday doing pistols (one-legged squats) and walking lunges with a 25lb plate overhead and my ass still hurts today.

I confess the wee dude has made significant strides in his language and speech this week. He has probably added 10 new words. Still working on saying please - he just laughs at us and says "More!"

I confess last night I put my tired toddler and sick husband to bed at 7:30p.m. and I curled up on the couch and watched a movie with my Sammi. "Blue Valentine" - excellent movie with amazing performances by the lead actors but if your marriage is in a state of upheaval probably best not to watch it.

Good on you for such a good workout! You deserve the pitcher of sangria, dammit! And so do I since I just got finished on the helliptical. I'll be over momentarily to join you.

I totally agree with the modern family/cougar town combo! Love the diverse families on modern and hey that kid on cougar town turned out pretty normal even with all that wine around!

Melissa said...

Red wine is no friend of mine either (ouch, my head!). I am a Lemon Drop Martini kind of gal. Mmmm.

What is the homeopath giving you all of these potions for?

Ranavan said...

Ooooh Lemon Drop Martinis!!!! Yum!!!

The homeopath is for a few things...allergies, perimenopause, pads...she was also very worried about all the travel vaccinations I have there is treatment for that too...she said travel vaccines are very hard on the system...I always react to them so I believe her.

We definitely need to have a play date soon...the kind where Yvan drops you off and then meets you here for a BBQ! Summer is such a short season here - we really need to take advantage! Glad to hear the loss post was therapeutic and that you feel confident in the homeopath you're seeing. I've had some really good experiences with my homeopath.

mmmm, sangria.

Homeopaths are awesome! I love my acupuncturist too. It is amazing how helpful that stuff is, especially after a "regular" doctor tells you everything is fine.
