Re: Confession

  • OMG that sounds amazing! Jealous.
    30 Rock Pictures, Images and Photos
  • Are these flame free?
  • I always assume they are.  What's the point of a confession if you're going to get your buns toasted?

  • I have a pasty in the fridge at work and I am so tempted to eat it.  Even though I have already had a brat.  My cousin and Aunt made it and it is sooooo good!!!  I haven't had them in so long!! 

    I think I am going to do it!!!  Yum, yum!

  • I got irrationally angry and heated with my utilities company today when I received notice that they would be charging me $325 for a GD deposit.

    I said this "If you people would get you sh!t together and start reporting my prior payment histories I would have substantial credit by now."

  • Two confessions...

    1. Last night I get a call at 3 am regarding my close friend who lives in the same complex as me. On her way home from work she called her ex boyfriend and told him to come over. He found her knocked out with a hole in her chin and her tongue badly bitten.After the designated driver service dropped her off at home she was going up the stairs to her apartment and totally biffed and busted her chin open. He calls me at 3:30 in the morning bc she is hysterical and inebriated. **for some reason I speak the language of drunk ppl, I have the ability to defuse situations with them...I believe it comes from having an alcoholic parent** Anywho was up until 6 am trying to convince her to go to the ER to have a tetanus shot and possibly a stitch or two for her gaping hole in chin situation. BTW did I mention my final for school was due today...yea, I passed thank-you very much.

    2. After arriving home at 6 in the morning from dealing with that situation and making a late night run to the store for hydrogen peroxide, band aids, and neosporian. I come home to the smell of men's cologne. I thought maybe I picked up a smell at my friends house but I sniffed my shirt and there was nothing on there. So I go to bed, I finally got the sign I was looking for from my uncle who passed away recently. He appeared in my dream working on something at the kitchen table at my Grandma's house where we use to live at together. I said to him, "hey you know your dead right?" He said "Yea, I know" I'm like "your okay right?" he said "Yeah, yeah I'm fine." then I asked what heaven was like and he said "it's alright." Which kinda comical because that would be a response he would give...lol that heaven was just alright. I felt much comfort in seeing him finally...I believe the smell of men's cologne before I went to bed was him. My husband hasn't been home in 7 months and he only wears one kind of cologne and the smell wasn't familiar.

     

    Okay sorry for the novella.

    Congrats on passing your final!!! Yay!

    My grandma smells things like that too.  She doesn't talk to the people who have passed, but she will smell something that is familiar about them. 

  • I feel like I am not feeling "sad" enough about DH being deployed. It's only been a week, but I have only cried once, for like two minutes, yesterday. I miss him horribly, but I don't feel like my life is over, or on hold just because he's gone. Everyone I have talked to has been crying, and just feeling mopey. Me, I went back to work the next day.

    You are not alone.  Not all of us are mopey like that.  You are fine and just because you aren't all emotional doesn't mean you care any less.  Everyone handles things differently. 

    Like you said, your life isn't over and it comes with the territory of being a Military Spouse.  Keep on keeping on!  You sound like you are doing well considering the situation!  Smile

    Don't feel bad, I was the exact same way. I shed a couple of tears when I watched his unit march out to get on the buses, and then I drove 5 hours back home, showered and went to class. I have only cried once since then. If this is how you deal with it, then that is perfectly fine.

  • I am mad at my H for absolutely needing the computer to look up Basketball hoops. I want the computer to Nest. I don't care about that pole on the side of the driveway, it doesn't need a net. That and I hate posting on my phone.

  • I am secretly hoping that H's R&R gets pushed back a couple of weeks so that I do not have to go to my brother's wedding in Georgia because knowing my family it will be a complete clusterfvck.

    You're in the majority more than you think.  I find that the people who are mopey and emotional about it make it known to anyone and everyone.

    I cried as I was saying goodbye to DH, got in the car and left.  I've had my moments since, like everyone else, but life does and has to go on.

    Don't let the whiners bring you down!

  • My confession is that I plan on getting shnockered tomorrow night with my best friends for my 1 year nursing class reunion.  I will be extremely hungover come Sunday and I just don't care. Stick out tongue

     

    Goobear- I'm with you.  I've done this before, just not with a deployment.  Don't feel bad for not feeling sad!  I cried a lot the first few days mainly just because of the loneliness.  I was so used to him being around every second that I was home.  I'm planning away every spare second I have so that I don't get into that lonely rut.  Good for you for being strong with it. 

    Mmerritt- Holy crap about your friend!!  At first I thought she got beat up or something!  I'm glad it was just a bad drunken spill, and I hope she gets that healed up quick.  I got goosebumps reading about your uncle.  At least you know he's in Heaven. Yay. =)

    Along these lines, I secretly hope my sister will postpone her still unplanned October wedding until next year.  I know if she tries to pull it off this October it was also be a giant clusterfvck.

    I swear, I randomly smell Estee Lauder. My grandmother wore it religiously, and it always triggers a memory of watching her "put on her face"

    This was me when H deployed a while back. I just went about my daily life like usual. This deployment hasn't been the greatest but for some reason I'm just not as fazed as when it was the first one and there was so much unknown. 

    Don't feel bad though, everyone deals with it differently...

  • All of these stories regarding people who have passed and smelling their fragrance is kinda scary but sweet.

    I confess that I HATE the ugly hair cuts that boys/teens are wearing these day. The big side swept in your eyes hair cut. Justin Beiber style.

    I also hate that girls are wearing their hair similar to the boys. They have massive bangs and they side sweep them. Think 16 and pregnant hair (season 2).

    It's weird how things like that happen!  It happens more than people realize.

    Is it weird that I am kind of jealous of this. I wish I could smell my dad's cologne again or talk to him.

    Yeah she'll be alright, she went to urgent care finally today and they were able to just glue the wound shut. She is in some pain from biting her tongue but maybe this will be a valuable lesson to her to stop getting so wasted at work. 

    About my uncle, I've been looking for a sign for two months now waiting, waiting, waiting for it. I wasn't getting one and it was bothering me. With the way he passed I was worried he was in limbo or sad. When I looked into his face in my dream it was like he was at peace, and he was more concerned with the item he was fixing at the table. This responses to dying, being okay, and heaven were how he would of responded in real life. It may seem cuckoo thinking about talking to him in my dream but at this point I'll take anything. The idea of never seeing him again was/is unbearable, seeing him if even in dream form helped.

  • Talking about colognes... I have to "check" every cologne that D wants to wear/buy because I can't have him smelling like my dad even though I love how my dad always smells. 

    I haven't talked to my dad on the phone since Christmas and I don't care. Long story short: After 25 + years of marriage he wants a divorce from my mom but won't sign the [email protected] paperwork.
