Canceled Trip + Confessions

I've been a little preoccupied lately. And although I've had the time to sit down and share with y'all, I just needed a break from everything. I needed to step away from cyberspace and focus on, well, life. Last week was kind of a bummer. First of all, we would have been soaking up some R&R in St. Augustine right about now, but I had to cancel our plans due to work. I thought we could possibly reschedule, but I'm not entirely sure when we'll be able to catch a break since our schedules are all over the place. Everything is up in the air right now, which I hate. But, hey, that's life. We'll just have to make up for it when we can.

Being home to celebrate our anniversary last Thursday was a little weird. We've always gone on a trip in previous years. I'm not saying it was a bad thing, it was just different. We did our best to make the most out of the situation and ended up having a really great day. We spent the afternoon out together; grabbed a late lunch at The Cheesecake Factory, moseyed around the mall, went to see The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and got Starbucks on our way home. Nothing spectacular, but still wonderful. We were enjoying being with each other, having fun and making memories. That's all that matters at the end of the day.

Now, let's move onto some confessions.

1. I confess that one of the reasons I'm not ready to have children is because I know it puts extra stress on a marriage and ours is going so well right now that I don't want to jeopardize that. And that probably sounded really selfish, but I don't care.

2. I confess that I tend to make already awkward situations even more awkward. It's like my specialty or something and I'm learning to just go with it. It's easier to laugh at myself and shrug it off than to be embarrassed by the things that I say or do.

3. I confess that I've recently turned into a Whovian (an avid fan of Doctor Who). So much so that I've devoted a whole shelf in our bedroom to my growing collection of all things DW and I plan on getting a tattoo, eventually.

4. I confess that I haven't worked out in over a month and it's catching up to me, but I have zero motivation. Tsk-tsk, I know.

5. I confess that I've never been into shows like Big Brother, The Bachelor/Bachelorette, Real Housewives of wherever, Keeping up with the Kardashians, etc. I just, I can't. There's enough drama in the real world. I don't care to watch it on television too.

6. I confess that I have a bad habit of using the term "retard(ed)" and it needs to stop. I jokingly called one of my coworkers a retard the other night and instantly felt convicted. I don't remember when it started exactly, but I'm trying hard to break it.

7. I confess that this is probably the 298th time that I've redone my blog's design and it most likely won't be the last. Being a designer with a head full of ideas and perfectionist tendencies is both a blessing and a curse.

  1. Aw bummer that you guys didn't get to go on your trip! :(

    I am so with you on #1. I don't want the added stress and I like having all the time for just me & my husband. I guess that sounds pretty selfish. But I am with you, I just don't care. lol.
