Friday Confessional


I CONFESS that I've taken way too long of a hiatus from my confession time.

I CONFESS that I have been struggling with the blog lately. It used to be just about family stuff and I'm trying to move more into "mainstream" blogging.

I CONFESS, I don't know how to do that. I'm not a great writer like Evelyn or Grumpy Grateful Mom. I don't have a gift for the written word like them. I'm still trying to find my niche.

I CONFESS that I am about ready to sell my children - more specifically my two-year-old. Not really but you know what I mean. The kid has been going through the Terrible Two's and beyond. It is getting really out of hand and I'm reaching my limit. I even took him to a doctor about it. It think there is more to it than "Terrible Two's."

I CONFESS that people wouldn't listen to me or would just put me down. "Oh, he's fine. Suck it up." No, he's not fine. I took him to the doctor the other day and persisted in my pursuit of making this kid a happier kid. Finally, someone listened to me. We are getting him evaluated for speech therapy. People told me we couldn't start until he was 3. I don't want to wait that long! This kid is angry and I need to help him now. Anyway, we are finally moving forward. I sure hope it helps.

I CONFESS that I probably say too much on Facebook. I make general statements and sometimes people think I am talking about them. I certainly don't intend to hurt anyone. Sometimes I just need to vent and get it out of my system. Facebook seems to be the place for me to do that.

I CONFESS that I finished all 8 seasons of 24 last night. I CONFESS that I want to cry uncontrollably. Can't Jack just be happy?! Come on, people! Give the guy a better ending than that! Sheesh. Can I just say that I love Jack Bauer?!  I'd be his Teri/Audrey/Renee any day!

*Swoon!!!*  ;-)

Two year olds are tough. Hope you can find the help he needs.

I think it is okay to vent! Sometimes our blogs & facebook are our only outlets. Plus, I like knowing that someone else out there is having good & bad times too! I love reading your blog!

Thanks for the nice shout out! I think your blog's already so fun to read!

Sorry you're going through a tough time with your son. I think you have to use your mother's intuition sometimes. I had my son getting speech help at the age of two. They sent someone out to our house to have him evaluated.

And we also watched all of 24, a while back. I know--lame ending.

I totally get your blogging woes. I want to get "mainstream" too. And I just can't write. I hate failing. And I feel like I have failed on that part.

Sorry about your son. I really hope this works for him. My thoughts and prayers are with you and him. Things will get better! You'll see!!

I vent on my blog and FB and Twitter too. That gets me into trouble a lot.

So, yeah, when are we going to meet up? Cuz, you're awesome and I like ya!! =)

i wish i was more mainstream too. i struggle with coming up with things to blog about and you are so right the 2 bloggers you mentioned are sooooo good at articulating their thoughts i really admire people who can do that!!

sending prayers up for you and you little guy.

people are weird and vain, they think everything is about THEM. i ran into the same thing recently, oy!

OH, i also wanted to let you know that the My Happy List link party is moving to Tuesdays starting October 11, i would LOVE for you to play!
