    I confess I gave the side-eye to a friend of mine who can't leave the house at night ever because her 13-month old son goes to bed at 6:45 and will not go down for her husband.  So she has to put him to bed and stay in every single night.  I know I don't have children, but something tells me that isn't a good situation for anyone.

    I've got a couple today.

    First off, I confess my hairdryer broke yesterday and I've been trying to be strong and not purchase a new one.  I might I have to make a trip to Target today.

    I confess that I saw friends of ours who recently had a baby and it has cemented in my brain that not only am I no where near ready to have children, but I don't know if I ever want them.  They looked so tired and worn out.  They even said they don't feel like they ever communicate or live anymore--- it's just one chore after another.  I don't want to ever be that way.

    On Sunday we were supposed to meet up with my friends for breakfast to celebrate a 30th birthday.  They have since moved it to 3:30 and we can't go because I have my nephew's birthday party then.  I confess I was bummed about the time change-- not because I really wanted to hang out with these people, but because I really wanted some blueberry pancakes.

    Dear MH-
      I've only known you for, what, a year? and I would never purchase you anything that had a parrot on it.  Just sayin'

    Happy Early Birthday Mommacita,
      Amer.

    Dear Drink-
      You know I gots your back ;)

    Love,
      Amer.

    Hill- WHO the heck sent you that? Is it the Jimmy Buffett Parrot? Ha Ha. There are ALOT of crazy Jimmy Buffet fans out there that might ACTUALLY like that pitcher... I am not one of them.. but I did laugh!

    Confession: I was running late this am, thanks to an uncooperating puppy... and emailed my boss to let her know. She replied saying she wont be in until later... so a 1/2 day of work and no boss... equals NO WORK FOR ME for the 3 hours I will be here this am...

    Dear DH:
    Thank you so much for stepping it up with straightening up! I love you for it <3

    Love,
    Your Appreciative Wife

    TMI Confession:  DH and I haven't had "relations" in almost 2 weeks due to him first having a back injury, now he has a severe cold.  The only thing getting me through this tough period is knowing how good it will finally be when it finally happens!

    Hil - try selling it on eBay.  If you need any help, please don't hesitate to ask:  I was able to sell a monstrous ugly ceramic plate we received as a wedding gift!

    This.

    I confess I'm trying to come up with some excuse that would allow me to work from home friday. My pre allergy itchy eyes make it so uncomfortable to have my contacts in and I wanna slum it in my glasses and sweats for the day.

    Amer -- I'm with you on the babies.  And I feel really guilty about feeling that way... but I do.  At least right now.

    AW: We got our wedding bands a couple of days ago!  Finally.  AND I didn't even have to push him!  Gzilla just said "Wanna go get our bands today?"  AND today he said something about going to the post office to apply for his passport.  He's being really cooperative.  He must want something.

    AW: I did a little mock up of my table numbers last night... and they turned out really good!  Actually Paprika gave me a good idea.  4x6 was too small for what I wanted them to look like, so now I'm looking for like 25 5x7 frames, but I'm searching yard sales and stuff, and then I'm going to spray paint them all white.

    Vent (that most of you all know from FB anyway) I don't know which I hate more.  I cheap butler corkscrew... or the bottle of wine that bent it into uselessness.  Now I have to go buy another freaking corkscrew so I can have wine tonight. 
    Paprika: I like it when you burp in my ear. It really turns me on.

    Dear Groomsman/Roomie,

    Thank you so much for cleaning the entire house a couple of days ago. I really really appreciate it. It makes me feel so much less anxious when I get home from work.

    Love,
    Girl who lives with two really amazing men

    THIS. Me and Braden agreed no kids for at least 5 years. But I honestly don't know if I will ever be ready. It stresses me out to even think about it.

    I dont know why but every month I always get a little anxious about my TOM... like it may not come, even though I have been on BC since I was 18 and we are careful. BUT since the wedding, I no longer have that anxiety! Not that my DH or I want any children right now but if I guess I have accepted that if it happens, then it does... and I will be okay with that. As we have a room in OUR HOUSE, not an apt, to have a nursery! Though I believe both DH and I are on the same page about waiting until after my BF's wedding in July 2012.

    I just showed my coworker (guy) the pic of my pretty parrot pitcher and he said it is so much worse than he pictured it based on my description.  LOL

    I confess I really want to sell the parrot stuff asap, but that makes me feel ungrateful and guilty.

    Agreed. Thats why we even pushed that back for another 6-8 months. Soo clearly if we're not ready for even a puppy right now- def not ready for kids haha

    If I get a slight baby fever- I got visit my cousin and her 4 kids ages 9 month to 9 years old. By the time I leave- baby fever is gone ;)

    I LIKE babies.  I just know that right now... there is no way I'd be able to take care of one at all.  I work 60+ hours a week... I have 2 jobs, and I have to have 2 jobs... there's no way.  I can't have baby fever.

    Haha at first I was like... AWE his letter matches her shirt!  Then I was like, wait a minute, the letters don't follow the shirt wrinkles... I love my blonde moments.

    I think the house is what got me ok if it happens too.  I'll probably freak out the months that if I did get KU it'd interfer with the wedding.  I've been on BC for 6 years, and like you I get a little anxious each month...  nothing against my FI, I already know he's a GREAT dad.  I already told him he'll be training me and the fact newborns freak me out.  I'm good when they can hold their own head up, so like 4 months.
