Friday’s Confession Booth: I’m a Hot Mess

Welcome to Friday's Confession Booth. To participate - you write a "Confession Post." It doesn't have to be serious, and you can read more about them HERE. Make sure you Enter the link-up below.  Then grab the button and place it in your post to link back and share with everyone's confessions


It has been brought to my attention that I’m a hot mess.

I thought I was hiding it so well.

Apparently, I’m not.

I’ve stopped making my “healthy lunches” – tortilla pizzas with low fat cheese.
Instead I’ve opted to buy chips, snicker’s bars, hoagies, and sodas for lunch.IMG-20110922-00334
This morning, I stopped at Sheetz – grabbed two custard filled Doughnuts, two 2-liter bottles of regular Pepsi (they were on sale … 2 for $3.00), and a 12 – inch hoagie for lunch.  Oh- and a 24 oz Cappuccino.  It was Fat Free… so does that count?

Cappuccino – down. Doughnuts – down.  One of the bottles of Pepsi – down.  Hoagie – down.  I actually carried the bottle of Pepsi down with me to lunch… where my friends confronted me with the cold hard facts:  I’m a hot mess.

My fat pants are starting to cut off circulation to my legs again.  My fat pants are hand-me-downs from a cousin who is shorter than me… so they are a little on the short side.  This means I have to wear flats… and still I look like I’m wearing high – waders.  My “flats” – could use an update.  Apparently, this has been the topic of conversation since the last time I “flip-flopped” my way through the building. 
I’m tired… like all the time tired.  Confession?  I’ve broken out in hives.  Yeah, like a 7th grader on a bad day.  Isn’t there some rule that after you ‘round 30 …. hives should not be in your vocabulary?  My doctor’s solution?  I should – decrease my stress and take these anti-histamines that basically are like elephant tranquilizers.  hmmmm… Yeah, I’ll get right on that.)The smallest thing will have me itching at my eye / chest / arms / legs like I’m covered in some rare form of poison.  I’m itching right now – base of the neck – because I’m writing this.

I slept through my lunch break 2 days ago.  I could not get up to eat … if you know me – you know this means I’m really tired.  Yesterday, I slept through dinner.  At 4:15 pm, I told Ray, “I’m so sorry.”  And promptly fell asleep.  When I woke, about an hour later, I realized I missed dinner.  Ray did tell me there was a lot of yelling that occurred over the course of the meal (I slept maybe 10 ft from our table) …. but I didn’t hear a word of it.
I couldn't find Birthday wrapping Paper..

Enter the caffeine-o-rama today.  I have to get a grip.  I’m hoping the sugar and caffeine can keep me awake so I can finally just crash at bedtime.  Oh – and not wake up a mere 2 hours later. 
I need to make it to the post office to mail out some things tonight.  I need to get a new pair of shoes tonight.  I probably need to get groceries… tonight.

I could use a hair cut, highlights done, eyebrows waxed, and a pedicure.  I would love a guilt free day where I magically got skinnier while being pampered.  I would love to be able to juggle my life’s tennis balls a little better.  I would love to hit Powerball.

Confession:  I do not have it all together.  I am currently a hot mess.  My shoe/flip-flop is falling apart.  I’m waiting anxiously for this weekend so maybe I can pull myself together.

That is my Friday’s Confession. What is yours?  Link up – Don’t forget to grab the button to link back and enter your post below.

Oh, girl. I'm pretty much there with you. I'm thinking about taking a nap soon- at 9am.

The shoe cracked me up. Is that REALLY your shoe in that photo? How are you walking around? lol

I think a trip to NYC is in order!!!

Kerry - yes, really my shoe. Yes, I really wore it. And... for those of you wondering... I'm considering going to the BlogHer conference next month....

Seriously, I don't remember the last time I wasn't a little bit tired. And then I drink caffeine to help with the sleepies and then the caffeine (or the sugar) makes me sick to my stomach. UGH. So, I feel your pain. I really do.

I'm a bit of a hot mess too. Although I don't think I would have thought to use that particular phrase. Life is HARD, no matter who you are or what you have going on. And you have a LOT going on. Keep in mind that you are good at your job, and your three children are thriving, so cut yourself a little slack! Although you probably should consider getting some new shoes. :) And I would suggest substituting water for the pop, but I have tried in vain to make that switch myself and have yet to overcome my addiction to carbonation.
