This Weeks Confessions From The Suburbs


Grab a coffee and a seat in your favourite chair;  it’s time for some good old fashioned confessions from the suburbs.  You know, so you don’t feel so alone in the crazy….

*Today I would not let my daughter leave for school without a healthy meal, and then I sat down and ate cake for breakfast.  I am a hypocrite. 

*I discovered a mouldy container in the refrigerator, I have no earthly idea what used to be in there, but I think it had a pulse.  Did I scrub that container clean?   No I did not.  I threw it out, and I do not feel one bit guilty about it.

*I cursed loudly in front of my girls this week and didn’t notice until they giggled.  It’s been that kind of week.

*I fed my kids pizza for dinner. Twice in one week.  Domestic Goddess fail.

*I pulled enough hair from my daughters shower drain to knit a sweater.  I gagged three times.  How can two little people create….that? 

*When asked at the grocery store if I wanted to donate a dollar to the local charity I responded “Not today”, as if to imply I usually do?  I don’t.  I am a liar.

*I shook my head all passive aggressive like, at the ladies PARKED in the the “drop off only” zone at school, ‘cause I’m too chicken shit to really “do” anything about it.

Yep, this is just me, trying to survive my glam life in the burbs, 

Getting it all off your chest does make it all a little better!  So go on now, fess up!  What do you need to tell us about your week?


  1. Chandra Christine O'Connor says:

    oh my gosh, our personalities are so similar

  2. oh that’s not a parking spot? let me go move that…

  3. What about *people who judge those who don’t carry their own shopping bags into the grocery store?
    What about *people who judge those who don’t pick up their feet while wearing flip flops?
    I don’t know who would do these types of things….must be a horrible person!

  4. I have to tell you, I love this post. 🙂

    Breathe, Mamma!

    Tomorrow starts a whole new week!

  5. I have been known to throw out containers as well. If it has a pulse I don’t want it jumping out at me.

  6. Melinda L. says:

    LOL, thanks for the laugh. Hey I hear you loud and clear on most of those points. If it’s pulsing I am never using that container ever again! And it’s amazing how much hair gets accumulated in the drain (EWWWWW)

  7. I glared at a lady who parked in a handicapped spot. While she did have a sticker on her car, she had no trouble walking. I’m guessing the sticker was for someone else who drives the car. I really really wanted to say something but I just glared instead!

  8. Victoria Ess says:

    I always say something to the effect of “not today” to cashiers asking for donations when I don’t give!
