Keeping it real: Supersized Edition

3 Sep
Do you ever have a bad day???


One of my friends asked me the other day why no one in blogland complains, has a bad day or is fighting with their kids and/or husbands. I know that everyone has problems. So in the spirit of “keeping it real”. I would like to show you a glimpse of who I really am!

My house is hardly ever clean(See this bowl – it’s my neighbor’s and Iit’s been sitting there for like a month. Still haven’t gotten it to her. See all the piles and junk all over my desk??)
  • I am not organized
  • I am a huge procrastinator
  • My kids are NOT perfect — they whine, complain and fight with each other
(Messy kitchen. Daughter that is mad at me for making her do chores instead of playing with her friend)
  • I don’t like housework
(messy family room. Daughter watching Arthur instead of constructive educational activity)
  • I hate going to the store
  • I hate cooking every night
  • My husband travels a lot and I get desperate for any adult conversation
  • I struggle with depression
  • I am afraid of speaking in public and all social functions
  • I do/say things without thinking that I regret

For example, tonight I have to go to PTA Back to School night and stand up in front of an auditorium full of people and it freaks me out.

I’m sorry if it has appeared that my life is perfect, because — it is not. I hope you will all still like me anyway….

Have a good night…

    I'm new to your blog and I'm determined to finish reading all the way back to your first entry. I'm inspired by you. And I totally think we are kindred spirits. Keep your head held high. You are a beautiful woman, blessed with a beautiful family, a gorgeous house, and tons of talent to boot. If you didn't show the "normal" every day life stuff, you'd seem hard to relate to. I think blogging is therapeutic. Take it one day at a time, post the good and the bad. Be you. That's why you have such a loving "family" here cheering you on. We all appreciate you just the way you are. I'm a fan of being real. I'm the type of person who chronically tells it like it is (perhaps to a fault) and I just can't see myself sensoring some things. Here's me and my journey with weightloss and even more honesty to come…
