Thursday's True Confessions

I've spent way too much time on Twitter today.

I've also wasted much more time than I usually do on Facebook.

I fed my (still recovering from colds) children tortillas spread with Nutella for lunch because I let us run out of bread and I couldn't make their usual lunch of PB&J. (Wow. 3 confessions for the price of 1 in that sentence alone.)

I've dumped my "To Do" list for the day. No dusting, baking, cleaning, or exercising were done here. Neither was the "shower".

I'm still in my pajamas. As are 2 out of my 3 chillins. And I just might go get dogfood, diapers, and drive through the bank like this. They may ask me not to come back. Ever.

I'm in a sour mood. Even after reminding myself of Philippians 2:14 ("Do everything without complaining or arguing.") at the beginning of my day. Need to work on that "lead by example" thing.

I spoke harshly to the ones I love most. Oh, let's just call it what it really was. I yelled.

I picked a few pimples that left lovely red marks on my face. Am I in Jr High again?!

I sat down with my kids to cuddle and read a chapter from Mrs. Piggle Wiggle and instead ended up getting irritated with them for being kids and sent them to bed. (That was last night.)

Oh. I've also worried about some things.

And I'm not blaming any of this on the Cabin Fever and Multiple Sick Kids Syndrome that is ravaging me, mind, body, and soul....but mostly, mind.

Wait. Yes I am.

Or I was anyway.

So, I'm off to make some confessions to the True One who already took care of it on the cross but can also help me get through it in the here and now....

And there will also be some hugging of the offended and some apologies made...

And maybe a shower...
