I confess…I feel surprisingly zen about all the stuff that we’ve gone through lately. Like, I’m actually in a GOOD mood today.
I confess… I was bad about commenting on blogs this week and it sort of proved that you have to give comments to get comments (for the most part, anyway.)
I confess… I have ten papers to grade and I just cannot get started.
I confess… this heat is seriously oppressive. I thought I was handling it alright but I am constantly irritated by it, moreso than I can ever recall. Argh.
I confess… I have been nostalgic for an easier time; even just one year ago. My brain keeps flickering through images of us walking the dogs and pulling the kids in the wagon and feeling so much less burdened than now. Just thinking about these images is making me both immensely sad and then grateful and overwhelmed with happy emotions. It’s been crazy.
I confess… that some of the odd feelings I attribute to the fact that in 45 days, Elliot starts Kindergarten and I know how crazy everything will be. We’ll have a brand new morning routine and new teachers, new homework, and all that comfortableness we knew before will be blown to bits. I just have to repeat to myself, “change is good.” Maybe I’ll believe it.
I confess… If I weren’t already overwhelmed with things, I’d like to start some kind of artistic project. Ash wants a couple shadow boxes of his various races and one for Iggy. But I can’t seem to find any I really like. Always something, right?
I confess… I’m about to go in for an hour of grading and hope to come out on the other side unscathed. I really like this app that my friend Catherine mentioned, TeuxDeux; it’s super helpful!
Okey dokey pokey, that’s all I have. How about you?

Funny, I’ve been feeling nostalgic all week, thinking how much fun it used to be hanging out at the ball park with friends, beers, and good times…I hadn’t done it yet this summer, so I went last night. This morning? I’m remembering why I don’t do it anymore! haha!
I hate change…but the one thing that keeps me calm is knowing that no matter what happens, life goes on…the sun comes up…you adjust to your new normal. It’ll be OK.
Happy Friday! 🙂
I have been reading your Friday Confessionals for awhile. I may steal this posting idea. Do you think it’d be acceptable for a guy, or lame? 🙂
You should absolutely join in. Be sure to link up with Mamarazzi so the rest of us can visit and say hi.
I don’t think it’s lame at all! I think everyone might appreciate that. ):
This summer ahs been so strange here–hot and smoky and well just strange. I’m hoping that July will seem just a bit more like a normal summer. Probably not, but I can hope.
This really has been an odd summer, and it’s flying by. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
I am not a summer-lover in the first place, and this heat is hateful. We’ve had a melancholy week. And it’s been the kind of week where we want to make sure we see the people we love while we can. I hope all goes will with Kindergarten planning!
