Friday Confessions – False Echoes

Jimmy Buffet song of the week:

I confess… I am not very crunchy/hippie and all but I tried this essential oil combo of lemon and peppermint as a supplement to suppress appetite and well, it works. I have this innate desire to snack while I work at my desk but this really helps. I don’t plan to totally change my diet while I’m doing T25 so anything that helps is good.

I confess… I’m pumped about going to Epcot. I honestly sat through an hour long walk-through video on youtube – just for fun. The last time I was in that park, Ash took me for my 25th birthday. We spent one night in the Wilderness Lodge, in a villa, and met my sister at Magic Kingdom for a bit before heading into Epcot. I think she was working at the former MGM at the time and that’s how we got into multiple parks. At the end of the evening, it was getting rainy and I think Ash and I were a little exasperated but we had this wonderful moment when the lights on the sidewalk started up and we were huddled under an umbrella – he and I came back together then and ended the night on a high note.ee949b0a5589168d63f025998b684a3b


I confess… it’s going to be weird without the boys next week. So quiet! So… boring? They might drive me nuts but they keep me busy.

I confess… I have seven empty water bottles in my office, ready to be recycled. I really need to get organized and bring my own water container each day.

I confess… this morning is flying by! I have some more work to do and though some is done, I am actually running out of time! Then I have to go home and do two T25 workouts, then we go to lunch and probably to see Xmen. Sadly, my day doesn’t end there. I have to clean for my parents’ arrival tomorrow and do laundry and pack up my boys. Always something!

Let’s revisit my to-do list, shall we?

  • Put St. George Island sticker on car
  • Clean out car; Windex inside of windshield
  • Water kitchen windowsill cactus
  • Rinse off camp chairs – sand sticks to them
  • Order new ones of these
  • Get a pedicure
  • Book vet for boarding in June
  • Sort through Baby Girl clothes; some no longer fit
  • Change crib bedding
  • Vacuum hair on bathroom floor
  • Get a haircut
  • Have Elliot write thank you notes to people who did the Flat Stanley project
  • Experiment with some Pinterest recipes
  • Take a damn vacation!


I think I got 3-4 crossed off; I’m getting there! Have a good weekend, everyone.

  1. I’ve found essential oils to be very useful lately too! I’m not very “greener”, but I’ve caught myself switching to organics on most things ha ha.
    How exciting about going to Epcot!
    Good luck with your to-do list!!

  2. Well, I am certainly going to try the lemon and peppermint oils this week, they might help me stick to my plan! That last thing on your list sounds the best 🙂
