10 Confessions

Here are my confessions......


  1. I have not cooked a dinner in 2 weeks. I did so well all summer long - using the crockpot in such creative ways. Some fuse in me has burnt out, and my care and dedication to being a great "hotel"maker has vanished. 
  2. I never thought this day would come, but I think I'm sick of the Oven Roasted Chicken Breast sub at Subway. (I consume this about 3 meals/week). Yet, I'm too much of a creature of habit to just...order a different sandwich!
  3. Part of me feels guilty that I won't be accompanying Ryan to his next school in California. Especially after I was visiting with one of the wives last week at a bbq, who is accompanying her husband in a kitchenless hotel room for 5 months with their 3 month-old. (the hotel room at the next school doesn't even have a kitchen sink!)
  4. I felt even worse when she said, "Hey, we're a family. We stick together!" 
  5. I got to run today! I've had no pain in my toe all week. I was all smiles. I'm proceeding with caution, however!
  6. We decided to keep our landscaping service and pool guy, even though I'll be home. I know I can clean the pool and keep up our yard...but it's kind of nice to not have to worry about it! (Feeling guilty)
  7. I'm done with my travel assignment! I left on good conditions from the hospital, and they invited me to return again. I am so happy I did this, and will recommend this to every new-ish nurse I ever meet! It made me grow a lot, and I feel like such a stronger ER nurse after this experience! 
  8. My last draw with this hotel room came this weekend. I've been noticing little welts all over my body, and I'd barely been outside because I'd been working. Well, we found a MONSTER cob web on the ceiling. Halloween decoration style!!! I'm pretty sure those welts are spider bites. Now I don't sleep at night very well. (In fact the other night I was awake every hour, either itching my welts or pacing around the kitchen in a state of insomnia)
  9. Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!!!!! Ack!!!! Grosss!!!!!!!!!
  10. On Sunday I went shopping for an outfit for Ryan's wing-pinning ceremony. I bought a swimming suit, 2 pairs of running shorts, a new sports bra, and a new workout tank-top before Ryan literally had to drag me by my arm  to a store and force me to find something his his ceremony. I'm not so good at shopping. :)

Don't let that other couple's decision sway you. You might make a different decision if you had a child, you know? I think you are making the best decision for you two and that is what is most important. I know that is easier said that done to not feel swayed/guilty/etc.

Also don't feel guilty about the pool man/landscaping. I think you will have enough on your plate. And then you have someone to blame if something goes wrong with the pool! I used to have a cleaning service when I lived in Mpls. I felt guilty initially but got over it eventually. We all need some help now and then!!
