Minnesota-Minneapolis and St. Paul

Confession Thursday

Confession:  I haven't gone to the gym since last week, even though I know I should.  My body has been killing me since playing kickball on Easter, so I've been using that as my excuse.  When in reality, I should have went because it would have helped me loosen up! 

Confession:  I know I should stop drinking pop, or at least drink diet, but I just can't.

 
Confession:  I really want it to be September, so I can marry my best friend & don't have to be at work for 2 weeks!

Confession:  I'm annoyed with my friend/BM for leading a guy on & getting a Coach purse out of it.  I keep telling her to return the purse & break up with him.  It looks so bad, & I just can't seem to get through to her.  The whole situation is driving me CRAZY!!

What do you need to confess? It'll make you feel better!  = )

    That would really irritate me too, if a friend of mine was doing that to a guy. What a crappy thing to do.


    I'm really unprepared for finals. Scarily unprepared.

    Confession:  I really want it to be October so I can marry the man of my dreams...I've never wanted summer to fly by so bad :)

    Confession:  I feel bad for wanting this weekend to just be FI and I and wedding stuff.  I was invited to do 2 different things and I decided not to do either.  FI is leaving for Vegas in one week for his bachelor party and I just want a nice weekend of us and relaxation.  It's been what seems like forever since we had a weekend home.

    Confession: I am totally stressed about my weight lately and can't seem to motivate myself to get to the gym as much as I used to.

    Confession: I want FI to get a job so bad (he graduates college finally next week) but the job he just found out about that is looking like a good chance is in Mankato....and I confess that I sure don't want to live in or anywhere near Mankato.  But with gas being so expensive we couldn't live up here.  I guess Ill find a new job and a new place for us to live if that happens...

    Confession: As much as I will be sad the whole wedding thing is over in a couple of months, I just want to be done wth it and re-focus on my CPA stuff.  I am so frustrated with myself lately and lack of effort I've put in there.

    Confession: 1 MONTH from today and I'll be a wife... and I think that's weird (cool weird though)

    Confession: I freely confess that I am uncomfortable with FI being the breadwinner and paying all the bills. Which will happen if I can't find a job in Kansas. I feel guilty because he is more than willing to support me and keeps telling me its OUR money. My brain hasn't processed this because if I don't make it, I don't feel like its mine to spend. I'm a work in progress :)

    Confession: I really wish FI would just find a job already. It's really the point of our arguments lately. I'm scared that my job will not support both of us come October when we move in together. I'm hoping that his father got to him this Sunday while golfing and just had him realize he needs to get even a part time job.... (He technically graduates in May with his Master's degree!)

    Confession: I'm pretty sick of the woman who is training me in the new job. Every client I have she is the lead so I have her training me.... her voice sounds like it would make dogs howl at times. She's super nice, but the voice is killing me!

    Confession: I'm supposed to be done with training as of Saturday so I have clients on my own next week and I am scared to death that I am not ready! My clients are autistic and and I'm a mental health practitioner so these children depend on me doing the right thing... I couldn't be more scared at this point!

    Confession: Even though everyone says to enjoy this time being engaged, I would really really appreciate if time went faster for the next year.. 9 months being engaged is long enough!

    Confession: My brain has already turned to summer mode, and I still have finals week left..

    Confession:  I'm feeling really left out in my department lately.  I'm the youngest in the department & the next youngest is 10 years older then me.  She had twins about a year ago, so now she's closer to the older ladies in the department, that are all married & have kids.  They're always talking about their kids & husbands, & I just have nothing to contribute.  They hardly ever ask about our wedding planning, so I don't bring it up, since they obviously don't want to know about it.  Thank God, my mom works in the same building, so I can go talk to her if I'm feeling down!

    Confession:  I actually stood up for myself at work the other day, because I was in the right.  And now I am getting the silent treatment from those that I  stood up to.  25 year olds and 40 year olds don't mesh well in the work world.

    Confession:  I think its out of line the my boss goes out and drinks (a lot) with her co-workers.  To me very unprofessional..

    I think I need a break from my work.  Come one weekend!

    Confession: I am REALLY tired of my practicum. I realize that being a diagnostician is a very important role when you are working for free for kids that would otherwise go through school and life without the chance to be successful because they aren't getting the services they need....that said, I am sick of writing 20+page reports and basically everything else that goes with it (aside from being with the kids of course...that part can be great). I feel like I should love the great experience I am getting doing a super comprehensive diagnostic battery with each and every kid I see. I feel like I should love the fact that I am providing a service they would otherwise have no access to. But DAMN, its draining...I'm so over it. The end of June can't come soon enough!!!

    I totally have done that too.  Although, it wasn't solely to buy stuff.  It was just a messed up (highly complicated) relationship that I didn't want to be in.  So I figured if I was stuck, I should at least get some fun stuff out of it!  I got a nice vacation and some pretty sweet teatre tickets out of it, too!

    Confession:  FI hates when I stop at Caribou for coffe, and I'm totally gonna get a coffe that's terrible for me today!  And I'm excited about it!

    I confess that I gave DH his b-pics last night for his birthday and his response was positively underwhelming.  I'm totally pmsy and I had to try so hard not to cry because I guess I expected him to be really surprised and jazzed about them and he was just sorta... "ho hum" about it.  Honestly, it made me feel that much more self conscious about myself.  :-(  And he totally got shut down when he wanted to initiate some action this a.m. over it (although he doesn't know that).  Way to go DH.  Way to go.

    Confession - I am really hating my job right now. Everything bugs me about my boss.

    Confession - FI is wanting to get a transfer to MN(we live in WA) because he is sick of the people he works with & we could afford things/house we really want. But I'm not sure I really want to, my mom, sis & grandma are here. I am very close with them even if I don't get to see them very often. Plus my sis is due with her first child/my first niece in 1 week - not sure I want to miss out on her life and if we have kids I want them to be able to play together. FI thinks we should do what's best for us and not think about them when deciding things. I feel like I'm being pulled in two different directions. My dad lives in MN so I feel like my mom will think me moving there I would be choosing him over her. Maybe if we moved some where else other than MN maybe I would feel differently. I don't know any more. ARRGGGHHHYell

    Confession: *Please don't flame me!*

    I have lots of things planned for my wedding. And I'm NEY. I know, I know, you're not supposed to pre-plan, but so many of my friends are engaged and planning, my little brother is getting married, and so many of my friends have just gotten married, that I'm stealing ideas and storing them away. So in my defense, I'm not researching anything yet, just collecting ideas. The only thing I've done that could be seen as going to far is that I toured the PEC when I was home in December. But I *knew* I wanted it for my reception and I want to be able to book ASAP after SO proposes, so being an OOT bride gives me a little more leeway, right, right? :)

    Anyhow, thanks for letting me confess. The girls on the NEY board would flame me really bad, I hope you guys will be a little more understanding! :-D

    Confession:
    I have turned into a Lurker! I know bad huh. You get married and then just fall of the face of the planet. I keep telling myself I need to post but most of the time I find that you girls got it and I dont need to add as I have gotten to the post too late. But I still lurk and read! And I am going to get better at posting.

    Confession:
    I have gone through a pack of gum in the last 2 days. That is 36 pieces of gum in about 42 hours. I am trying to kick my sweet tooth and it helps to be chewing on something but maybe I should cut down and start drinking water or something.

    Confession:
    My girls and i are trying to come up with a date to gtg this summer at a cabin and are having a really hard time finding a date that works for ALL of us. I am at the point where I want to pick my fav girls and just fit their schedule as there is no way we can get all of us in there.

    Confession: I am ALLERGIC to the ATG Transfer Tape from 3M. I broke out in a rash a few days after I used it on my fingers. it went away, but I went tanning for the first time last night and what do  you know I woke up with itchy swollen fingers again! Guess it takes longer than 2-3 weeks to leave the system.

    Confession: My parents are coming into town to stay with us tonight and I am  A) weirded out that they are staying with US and Thom will be sleeping here too and B) I love them, but I wish I just had a weekend to lay around and do absolutely nothing. I have been tired from all my workouts lately and I just need a break.

    Confession: I have been feeling soooo lazy lately. Tuesday is discount day at the laundromat, so it's when I do our laundry, but I HATE going to the laundromat. So I didn't go this week. So we have a pile of dirty laundry that is threatening to take over the entire bedroom. Three more weeks though and then we'll be moving and I hopefully won't have to deal with a laundromat ever again.

    Confession: I am so scared I won't be able to find a job when I move back to MN. I am 23 (24 on Saturday - woot!), with a college degree, and have yet to have a full-time job with benefits or even a salary that I can live off of. I don't even know what kind of job I want, I just know that I need to start making and saving some money ASAP.

    Confession: I am burnt out on wedding planning. I'm not all that excited with the wedding we've ended up planning and I'm ready for it to just be here and be over with so we can move on to the next chapter in our lives.

    Confessions:
    - I hate bridal showers, even when they are for me.  I do like getting all of the gifts, but I really could have used all of this stuff when I was 22, right out of college and poor.
    - I hate writing and sending thank you cards.
    - My "first love" is getting married in a week and it is bothering me, which is so dumb.  Stupid Facebook.
    - I am way behind on my planning and am really anxious about it.
    - When I get married in June I will be not far from my heaviest weight ever and I'm really pissed about that.
  • edited December 2011
    I need to confess although I'm doing it a day late.

    I absolutely hate the uncertainty of wedding planning and trying to accomodate everyone else's wishes and thoughts and opinions and making sure I am "considering everyone else" when I plan things.  I feel completely guilty about booking an elopement instead of throwing a big wedding, but what can I do?

    Neither FI nor my parents have much to contribute, nor would they probably volunteer to, so its' FI and I paying for the whole thing.  And I honestly do not want to pay to feed people I see once every 3 years or so and am not close to.  I really hate having to decide not to throw a big wedding, but we have so many expenses coming up in our real life that throwing a big wedding just seems stupid.  I need dental work done for $1k, FI adopting DS will be $5k, down payment/closing costs/furnishing/decorating the house will be $25k, FI needs a new car in the next 3 years and we will pay cash so thats another $5-10k....it feels like $$ is already coming out of my ears and the wedding is like the icing on that cake.

    Officially booking our elopement this afternoon is making me break out in mental hives...my parents are going to be so incredibly pissed off, and I just don't want to deal with it.  I might just not tell anyone anything until after it happens, it's not their place to decide how I get married since FI and I are the ones paying for it.  They of course will feel completely differently about it.

    I hate registries as well.  I think it's stupid, we're not registering and instead we're going to just go buy what we want.  It adds to the price tag of the wedding, but adds a lot less than a huge wedding would.  I can buy everything I want for under $5k and a big wedding would cost me $10k.

    I am feeling very selfish but am getting to the point where I don't care anymore.  I want to get started on the next baby, and DS having siblings is more important to me than the wedding.
