Until I found Citizen Of Humanity jeans I literally riped the ass out of every pair of jeans I owned. Small waist, big bootie.
My January Spending Freeze isn't going so well. More on that Feb 4th.
I can't stand the word vintage. It's overused. Something two years old is not vintage people.
Sometimes I have terrible thoughts that D will die at work and that I'll end up a young widow. I've let the thoughts go so far over the years that I've developed a plan for what I'll do if that ever happens.
If D's has to work late and I'm home alone for dinner, I let the cats sit on the kitchen table and keep me company.
I was cigarette free for 6 and a half years but have smoked 3 times in the last six months. Last week I pulled into a convenient store paarking lot to buy a pack. I didn't get out of the car and ended up heading home. I hate that I smoked and that I want to again.
I miss reading books, like actual books, not books on the ipad.
I have 1-2 alcoholic beverages 4-5 times a week.
Sometimes I wish D and I could agree to sale everything we own (the house, the cars, all of our worldly possessions) and go live in a trailer or tiny cabin somewhere in the middle of nowhere. Just the two of us living a very simple life.
I get chin hair.
Confess with me. It feels so good! Don't want us to know who you are, no biggie. Just leave a comment below annomyously. Happy Monday friends.
Oh darn... the dreaded chin hair!!! hahah!!! Yep, I get that too! I also love my Citizen of Humanity jeans :-)ReplyDelete
All the cool girls get chin hair :) At least that's what I tell myself!!! Have a great day Missy. XODelete
Oh these are good confessions! I have to admit that with my over active imagination, I fear being a widow all the time too. That's so morbid! I'm glad I'm not the only one. I pray you and I never have to deploy those backup plans :) Thanks for saying hi on my blog so I could find yours too! Looking forward to following along. (And ps I'm in San Diego too... livin' the good life :)ReplyDelete
Aw, here's to growing VERY old with our men. Thank you so much for stopping by :).Delete
I get major chin hair. I think we all do and whoever says they don't is lying.ReplyDelete
I wish smoking didn't kill you. I'd do it forever because I loved it.
I'm with you Steph, damn cancer. Have a great day :)Delete
Great post! I four get chin hair also and it makes me super self-conscious as I'm very dark naturally. And it grows super fast too :( I recently bleached it between waxes, meh :/ And am trying another bloody pill for it.ReplyDelete
I also miss reading actual books! Though I'm not allowed to buy all that many as we are "travelling". Can't wait for when I actually settle somewhere to have a huge wall filled with them :) Oldies too - binder smell...
Cats sitting on the table - hilarious. Though how do you keep them from giving up the jig when D is home? ha
I too hate doing washing, I go through phases of OCD though and every last piece must be washed, awful.
I love these type of posts, good on you girl :)
Have you tried threading Sarah! I have my brows threaded regularly and have on occasion had my chin and lip threaded too. It seems to last quite a while. Maybe look into it :). If it makes you feel any better I think the proof that we all get chin hair is in these comments. You're not alone.Delete
As for the cats sitting on the table. I guess it's time for another confession, ha! I've allowed it to happen so many times that they now think they're allowed up there anytime. D is always telling me "look what you started". For the most part, I don't mind, but it's pretty embarssing when we have guests and one of them jumps up there. Eeekkkkk
I totally giggled about your OCD with laundry. Been there, done that. I go through phases where I rip the house apart, curtains, rugs, you name it. Everything gets washed.
I love these posts too! That's part of what makes having your own blog so much fun. I use to read other people's blogs and want to join in on the fun, now I can. Have a great day friend.
I think this type of post was so interesting to read! I can't believe that your washing machine is not attached to your house! I would never to laundry then hahaReplyDelete
Hey Darcey, In southern CA it's pretty common to have your laundry room in your garage or like me, completely detatched from your house (unless of course you have a newer home). My house was built in the 60's though. It's definitely not the best scenario for us laxy people, but I guess back in the day the thought was that the weather here is so great that walking out your back door along yoru pool to a seperate laundry room isn't that crazy. Funny how a few decades can change things :)Delete
I kinda laughed when I read the "vintage" part. lolReplyDelete
You're so right!

Glad I'm not alone Jamie and thank you soooo much for stopping by. Have a great dy :)Delete
LOVE THIS!! I was nodding my head and half and laughing at the other half :)ReplyDelete
These posts are the best. You should totally do one when the spirit moves you :) Hugs friend. Hope you're having a great week.Delete
I have really horrible thoughts about dying alone too! I tend to obsess and worry about everything and it's really annoying. And stressful.ReplyDelete
Luckily I only have these thoughts once or twice a year. I have no idea what brings them on, but they are absolutely terrible. I think creating "a plan" is my way of trying to protect myself. I'm a planner by nature so in the event that something terrible like losing D ever happens, I can deploy my plan and hopefully put one foot in front of the other. I know that probably sounds mechanical, but whatever works right. Sending you peace and comfort Cece. XODelete
Bahahaha... I get chin hairS! Like, there's a gang of 5 of them. They're fucking merciless! The other day Pete actually pointed one out to me because he saw it glinting in the light. Yikes.ReplyDelete
Ha! More often than not D is pointing mine out too. So sad.Delete
I miss reading real books too. Lately I've been buying hard copies instead of Kindle versions. Bookshelf space be damned!ReplyDelete
Good for you Kate. I think I'm going to follow suit. I miss highlighting meaningful messages, bookmarks etc. Sometimes technology isn't always better :)Delete
Okay, well my confession is that I I tried the whole "sell everything and live out of a trailer" and it's not my fave. While it's nice to simplify, waking up to frozen water pipes or fuses blown by electric heaters is NOT fun.ReplyDelete
Oh, and I get chin hairs too. They make me feel like one of the 3 little pigs! :D
Ha, yes, I'm sure you're right Mollie. The grass is always greener, I guess that's just human nature. There's something really comforting about the thought of living a simpler life though. I guess I took it to the extreme (like I usually do). Here's to finding a middle ground. Hope you're well and thank you so much for stopping by. xoDelete
replace the cigs with diet coke, and you'd be talking about me. and throw in some chocolate too.ReplyDelete
Elle, Diet Coke is right up there and absolutely a tough one too kick. D is totally addicted to Diet Pepsi (like a 12 pack a day addicted.) Good luck cutting it out. You can do it!!!Delete
Love the honesty here. I also worry that sometimes my husband won't come home from work and panic like a crazy for no reason. My brain never shuts down and I'm thinking about 200 things at once at almost all hours of the day.ReplyDelete
Make sure you read my post on reducing stress today. We've got to put an end to the insanity :). I'm sorry you too have these bad thoughts about losing your husband. I hope neither of us ever has to face that reality. Hugs.Delete
Love this! I get one obnoxious black hair that grows from a scar on my chin. It's just one hair, but it's as thick as a cable. Yuck! So annoying.ReplyDelete
Nicki, you totally had me laughing here. OMG, well isn't it good to know we aren't alone. Here's to girls with chin hair :) Thanks so much for stopping by too. It's awesome to hear from you!Delete
