These Are My Confessions – Volume Three

1. I am drinking way too much coffee. Like, there is an amount that I drink that I freely admit is *too much* and I’m probably drinking a cup on top of that.

2. I am a little bit sad that the CrossFit Games Open is over (finished wod 12.5 this morning — more to come on that soon) but mostly just excited not to feel the anxiety about what the workout is every Wednesday night. Even though as a competitor my scores weren’t SUPER helpful to my box, I still made myself anxious thinking about it every week.

3. I am kind of in love with Fashion Star. Even though Jessica Simpson is a dummy and Nicole Richie is always someone I thought was obnoxious, it is fun television and the two of them are totally engaging.

4. I am counting the minutes until Friday. THE MINUTES. I’m not always the most productive when I’m doing this, ahem.

5. I haven’t watched ANY of the most recent season of Downton Abbey. I KNOW, right? They are all sitting on my DVR and I *want* to watch them, but it’s so many and I’m just not feeling like sitting in front of the tv lately. I should be fired from the internet. (While we’re at it I should probably also be fired for not loving Mumford & Sons or Lana del Rey. Both of them make me actually roll my eyes when I hear them. It’s an involuntary response.)

6. On the other hand I have ignored all of the following things in order to read recently: my laundry, paying bills, swiffering our awfully dusty floors, cooking dinner, and of course Garrett. IGNORED!

7. I may have eaten 2 string cheeses last night, mindlessly and standing right in front of the refrigerator. What is in those, man? Crack?

8. If you could see the amount of fingerprints on my glasses right now, you would wonder how I ever made it into adulthood.

9. I totally feed the neighbor’s cat even though Garrett always says not to. You guys IT IS SO CUTE! And I’m not feeding it tons of extra food or anything, but sometimes just maybe a little morsel of something. And yep, it keeps coming back. What can I say — food is an act of love! And I love this fluffy little orange cat.

10. I sort of feel like waiting until Hunger Games comes to Netflix. Does that make the World’s Worst Fan? probably just makes me an old person who doesn’t like to sit in crowded theaters anymore.

Where’s my cane? Kids, get off my lawn!



So what do you want to confess? You’ll feel better, I promise. I’m all ears.

    1. I had no fricken idea this was the last week of the Games. I must have assumed that every Thursday morning would feel this awful.

    2. I have been mainlining Vampire Diaries and I CANNOT STOP. CANNOT. It’s impacting basically everything in my world. We’re mid season 3 right now and I CANNOT STOP CANNOT.

    3. I am legitmetly thinking of going home to work because I don’t like what I am wearing. Seriously. Pathetic.

      Re: #3 — I have totally gone home at lunch to change my outfit and come back to work. Because I am crazy. Actually this morning I was muttering all sorts of awful things about my lame boring outfit and panty lines and how I HATE EVERYTHING and Garrett stopped me, grabbed my by the shoulders and said “Holly — THESE ARE YOUR HORMONES TALKING — your outfit looks fine, now go to work.”

      So maybe it’s just something in the air?? :)

    THANK YOU. I’m thrilled to find out I’m not the ONLY-PERSON-ON-THE-FREAKIN’-PLANET who doesn’t lose my mind over Mumford & Sons. My husband mixes them into my Spotify playlists just to spite me.

      You know, it’s funny — I don’t HATE them, but I just feel like they are another band whose songs all sound the same so I can never tell them apart. And since we already have The Red Hot Chili Peppers and Foo Fighters to do that, why do we neeeeeed Mumford & Sons? :)

    1. I’ve been sleeping 10+ hours every night for the past week. I’m not sick. I’m just decompressing.
    2. I have two blue, upholstered chairs in my living room that I need to get rid of (there’s no space for them after this move). They are sitting stacked on top of each other with their cushions thrown on one of the couches. It is my job to sell them and I have FAILED at this job.
    3. I hate calling any company to tell them I moved or anything that would help me in the long run. So, I wait until a bill comes to me late (because it was forwarded) and then I call to pay it in time. Still end up calling.
    4. I have become obsessed with “Lost” and I cannot stop watching it.

      I do the same thing when I move — or about any phone calls necessary. HATE HATE HATE the phone and avoid it all costs :)

    Well I do love Mumford & Sons, but dude. Lana del Rey is a chick from, like, New Jersey, really named Lizzie.

    I used to have this cat, Luna, who would eat anything anyone would give her. So much so that she’d go into people’s houses! It drove me crazy because half the time I couldn’t find her. I had this one neighbor who accused me of never feeding her and often when I was wandering the neighborhood calling for her, I would find her in this neighbor’s window inside her house! It actually really upset me because my cat was just a hungry hippo, not a starved/neglected kitty, and I had to kind of go off on this lady after she kept letting her in even after I asked nicely not to. Some cats are just like that! My cat Dash would probably be the same way if he was an outside cat. Orange kitties seem to love to eat. :-)

      Ok, see this actually makes me feel bad! I do have a little bit of guilt — because I dont know, what if this cat is on some gluten free special diet and I’m screwing things up! At least I guess I am not thinking bad things about my neighbors. They are great! (I just also think their cat is great and like that it keeps coming back to our house and I can’t help but want to give it treats when it meows at my screen) ACK! bad habits! :)

    I confess that my attitude is complete crap today. I have so much to be grateful for, and yet… Meh. It’s just an “off” day, I guess, and we all have them. But I can’t even “enjoy” it like a normal person without feeling guilty. Issues…

    I totally get that you’re doing it from a good place! My neighbor was not. :-) You could always ask the neighbor? You’re so sweet to want to treat the neighbor kitty, really.

    This is a safe place right because I am unaware of both Mumford & Sons and Lana del Rey. I mean they sound vaguely familiar, like maybe I have read a review about them in my People magazine that is always two weeks old by the time I get it. But damn it Germany get with it. I am in a pop culture black hole (which is not entirely bad).

      Oh please at least You Tube Lana del Rey…I just find the fascination with her hysterical. She literally sounds like someone waxing poetic outside on her break at a hotel casino, with jazzy music in the background. But you know, these days that means: INSTANT INGENUE!

      (PS — I miss you, can you come back from Germany already?)

    I thought I was the only one in the world who likes Fashion Star. I am addicted to young coconut, but I already confessed that on Facebook. I am also a bigger fan of the Muppet Movie than my daughter. My outfit is so horrible today, I think I want to take the early train home. I watch Teen Mom 2, and I am said the season is over. I haven’t read a good book since Ready Player One, but I think its all my fault because I can’t find something I am interested in. I stopped drinking so much coffee, and I gained 5 lbs….so now I am mainlining the coffee again. I, too, will wait until Hunger Games comes out on DVD. It seems like a lot of work to go to that movie in the theaters for some reason. For the past two months, I have woken up every Thursday thinking it was Friday, realizing its only Thursday, I hang my head in sorrow. Sad…so sad.

      OF COURSE you like Fashion Star because you have amazing taste. Obviously. I read every sentence you just wrote and wanted to shout “BEEN THERE” especially on the book front. Have you read any/all of Jonathan Tropper’s books? They aren’t really about anything in particular (family/relationships/etc) but they are always witty and hysterical. Maybe you need a good laugh — or a drink — and tomorrow is Friday. Did someone say Happy Hour??

    Funny I had a cat who wondered around and a neighbor who actually get this tied a note to his collar asking if he was ever fed please call me and let me know hahaha, lady did you not see how big he is. So as long as you aren’t weird like that keep feeding him! Hunger games I would like to read the books first but since I still have little humans that require me to feed and bathe them well it may be a while.:)

Some personal realizations occur when sitting under a red-tinted hood of heat and wearing enough foils to make contact with an alien mothership. Sure, you can get six weeks of color before growing roots plant you back in that salon chair; but you can also end up with brassy zebra stripes that bring back memories of ultra-glossy Lip Smackers and frosted cream eye shadow.
