Fess Up #1. The Chocolate Chip Cookie Diet
Whenever I decide to start a diet I usually end up making a batch of cookies. It doesn’t matter that the same day my neighbor brought over a giant batch of garden lettuce. I still made the cookies and ate half a dozen. The lettuce?? well I just looked at it throughout the day and thought it would make a great centerpiece.
Here’s what continues though out the “diet” day. I always take half of a cookie thinking that I’m being “much better” than taking the whole cookie.
After a while I’ll look at the cookie plate and see 14 halves of a cookie, and that’s when I I realize I haven’t been good at all. I just at 7 cookies.
Pretty soon my entire mind set changes and I decide that it would be much better for me just to eat ALL the cookies that are left so that tomorrow I will have no temptation at all.
Makes total sense – right?
Fess Up #2. Bored Kids and Cleaning
Every day during the summer my kids are bored and “have nothing to do”. (please tell me your kids say the same thing!) On Tuesdays though we have our “family fun cleaning day”. Honest truth, it is the only day my kids from early morning on play with all their toys, read books, and play board games. I don’t hear a PEEP from them (as in silent, no fighting, NOTHING!)
I’m thinking of doing a family fun clean day everyday of the week next summer I bet they wouldn’t ever tell me they were bored, I suppose a few other phrases might come out of their mouth like they wish they were adopted out to another family. (*sigh*)
Pink is for Manly Husbands and Ferocious Dogs:
I may have gone a little overboard with this one. I was told by my hubby (who doesn’t read my blog BTW) that I needed to buy a new retractable leash for our dog. (Our dog’s “ferocious” teeth chewed through the last one) I hate spending $ on our dog – I mean for Pete's sake, his grooming bill is HIGHER than my cut and color. (I did just buy my own clippers BTW, I’m sure there will be a few fess ups from that adventure)
Anyway, I found a leash for our large male dog for 32.99. I thought that was steep so I wanted to check out the discount store Ross before I bought it. Sure enough ROSS CAME THROUGH for me! Ross had a GREAT retractable leash for a dog up to 110 lbs.! Only problem, it……was……PINK, as in soft, adorable, fairly tale pink.
(for anyone that knows my husband, well let’s just say, he’s NEVER let me pawn my purse off on him to hold. Nope, not even for a second)
No worries here though – right? I’m a DIY craft blogger and have tons of spray paint in my garage. Color means nothing to me anymore. (I’m very warped that way now, as you can see)
And PROBLEM FIXED! By the time any of that blue paint might chip off it will be too late to do anything about it AND I saved 25.00!!!! (it was only 7.99)
Pink? What pink?? WhaWho!
To all my fellow cookie dieters, summer cleaners, and cheap spray painters, have a great day!!
