Time For Those ‘True Confessions’ Mentioned At The Top of The Page…

TC#1 I am not sticking to my lamest ever workout plan. At all. I thought it was brilliant, since I was committing to the Whole Internet that I would be doing this. But I haven’t. I’ve probably done a paltry 1/3 of the total exercise requirements. I thought I was losing weight anyway, but now I think maybe I’ve gained. My scale cannot be trusted, so it’s hard to say. And I might be in denial.

TC#2 I am a stay at home mom with a housekeeper. Sorry. But the Proverbs 31 lady had help, too. Re-read if you must. Mike thinks that four kids is plenty of work, and that my time should be spent on the kids and my writing – not cleaning. Blame the husband if you must, who tried for a year to talk me into hiring someone before I relented. (I know, WHAT was I thinking?)

TC#3 All my kids are amazing, but I’ll probably mostly talk of 3 of them here. I’m not playing favorites, but we’re neck deep in issues with one child. They’re far too painful for me to blog about right now. This has become a bit of an escape from those issues, and I’d like to keep it that way, as well as protect that kid’s privacy about things so personal. And so I may have a housekeeper (just once a week), and ramble about nonsense and eyelashes, but this life is not without its difficulties.

TC#4  I’m a former Diet Coke addict. (More than a 6 pack a day) Now I’m a Diet Sprite addict, which is so much more virtuous since a) it’s clear and b) it’s caffeine free, and c) ‘clear’  is supposed to be better, right?

TC#5 This is a website with an Agenda, I fully admit it now, lest there be feelings of Blog Betrayal later. I’d love it if one day this website had enough traffic to be beneficial in landing me a book deal. If I’m not mistaken, publishers love to hear "Not only do I have this amaaaazing manuscript, but I also have thousands of daily readers already!" Until that day, I’m enjoying myself immensely with this site being just what it is and nothing more.

TC#6 Biggest Truest Confession Ever: I’m one of those Christians, born again style, who believes  in Jesus and everything. I didn’t really grow up in church, and sometimes I’m freaked out by the people who did, because some of them are really, seriously weird.

TC#7 This one isn’t a big deal, but I just thought of it. I don’t ‘cuss.’ That’s what we call it here in Texas, and I just don’t do it. I think I heard someone say once that it’s a lazy approach to communication when there are so many words to choose from. That was enough for my impressionable, word loving self. You won’t hear it here.

Not as scintillating as the title suggests now that I think about it. Okay, one more.

Bonus TC#1 I TiVo All Star Workouts, which is great since I get bored with exercise so quickly. Each episode is a different kind of workout. Today I was a Remedial BellyDancer, as I began to think of myself. Caden-1yr kept laughing at me, and looking at the women on the screen then back at me. Then he’d say, "Mom, uh uh" and shake his head since I was doing it wrong. I tried for an hour to gyrate and circle and undulate my abs, hips, and butt. It wasn’t attractive, graceful, or seductive in any way. It was pathetic – but I’m sore and it was a workout which was all it was supposed to be anyway.  Oh! And totally entertaining for the babies. (And yes, I shut the blinds first because I only wanted to entertain MY family)

Hi Kelsey…..I love coming by your blog for a laugh perk! My mom used to buy those True Confession mags way back in the 70′s and they were pretty sordid. Oops, guess that exposes the fact that I did peruse them. Ahem. Well. Your confessions just do not compare to what was “laid bare” (pun intended) in those pages, my dear! What you have done is reveal yourself to be as human as the rest of the population. In fact #6 and #7 are to be applauded as there is far far too much compromise and apostasy in the church nowadays. We are chosen, set apart, a holy priesthood – something which has been forgotten in many Christian circles. Keep striving! The Holy Spirit will equip you to accomplish that to which the Lord has called you. God bless you! Emily

Ahh that was awesome!! I know exactly what you are talking about with entertaining the kids!! Mine are older and still will come down to laugh at my painful attempts! I remember once when my 14yr old was about 3 or 4… He was hurrying down the hallway trying to get past me, With little hands on my butt pushing he whinned “Mooooom your butt is tooooo BIG!” Don’t you just love the honesty of babies? uuuuuugh

TC#4 – Didn’t we get past the whole “Clear is Good” issues back in the early 90′s (remember things like Crystal Pepsi and Miller’s Clear Beer?). That being said, I give you kudos for kicking the “habit” anyway (even if you did just trade it for another).

TC#6 – You don’t have to be “raised” in a church setting to be weird. Just look at the President (born again style, however perverted a version it is).

Bonus TC – Wow, now taking a product that is meant to make you more sedentary and using it to make yourself LESS sedentary. That is impressive ;)

Now, I can’t believe I’m reading a “Christian website” – no offense but you seem cool about the skeptics – but you are one funny lady. And I DVR those same daily workouts! hehehehe

I will definitely be a reader.

Well it was fun until you mentioned exercise and I got all uncomfortable with the sad fact that I have not gotten near a sweat today. I did run up and down the stairs five times for my two year old who couldn’t figure out what she wanted. Does that count?

Keep it up:-)

Hello! I’m here via Geekwif today. I am her friend’s (Blond Girl)sister-in-law.

Welcome to Blogging! I have to admit, I peruse other blogs more than work on my own, but I try to post when I can. I’ll be back here again! Keep it up.

TO ALL THE CO-FANS OF GEEKWIF,
Thanks for stopping by! And to Latte Man, here’s something that will just drive you nuts: My husband has a framed 8 x 10 of the Commander in Chief on his office wall. Hee Hee. Really, he does. (I tease him because our family pics are 5 x 7s!!)He hasn’t lost any clients over it, but then again, we are in West Texas.

I “borrowed” your bible promise link..I hope you don’t mind. That service is the coolest thing I have ever seen. I know I would never have stumbled upon it on my own, so thank you!
