Friday Confessional...

Time to get it all off my chest and confess.

I confess...

I'm more than a little jealous of those who are living in sunny states right now.  It is gray, and dreary, and cold in my neighborhood.

I confess...

I'm getting a little frustrated with all of the inaccurate things that are being said/printed about Mormons in the media lately.  Yesterday I read an article, and want to know what I learned about myself?  Apparently I am conservative due to my lack of education, and I hate women and black people.

I confess...

Reading the comments left on that article was even more disturbing as I learned that I also brainwash my children with subliminal messaging techniques, and perform rituals to create slaves for myself in the after life.

I confess...

Slowly getting some remodeling done in my house in preparation for several different house guests I will be having over the next few months is cheering me up.  Although overwhelming me at the same time.

I confess...

I just committed to another huge undertaking.  It is something so worthwhile, but it will definitely be overwhelming, and I'll be blogging about it a lot, and asking for help and advice in the upcoming months.

I confess...

It's going to be hard on my family and me to have my little brother move to North Dakota. He is on his way now.  We are used to seeing him at least once a week, usually more than that, and he is so very good to my kids.  Not sure what they're going to do without him!
Here he is teaching them how to cause mischief at my other brother's wedding.

I confess...

I have contracted the plague and am hacking my guts out, so I am going back to bed.  I will be by to visit everyone later!

Getting remodeling projects done feels good, the process not so much.
Hope you feel better soon.

Umm...you're a conservative because you're stupid and you hate women and black people?

We need to break up until you get your life straight.

i'm gonna miss your little brother. *tear*

I'm full of orneriness today! =)

Yes, it is crazy what is being said- I try not to read the comments as they are always worse and stupid and full of hate and ignorance.
Hope everyone gets better soon!

Don't be too jealous of us. We'll be sweltering in a super hot summer and won't even have the memories of the cold winter to look back on. Sigh. I'm wishing for some cold nights!

Your brother looks like he's a great uncle! I wish my brother lived closer so he could get to know my future kids.

yeah, it is a little ridiculous the things being tossed around. it's ignorance. try not to pay it attention.

thanks for linking up your confessions!!

Personally, the stuff they're saying is all just fodder for my enjoyment. I am so amused by it...it's ridiculous. If you are a Christian, you are under fire.
It's best to be a heathen who does stuff unapologetically these days if you want anything in life. The lower the scum you are the better you get.
I'm so sorry for the loss of your brother...going to a different state I mean....and he's not older, right?

It's really disappointing to read the lies about the church. Especially by people who know better.

I'm sorry your brother moved away. My little sister is off at school on the east coast and I'm happy for the adventures she's enjoying, but I miss her.

Don't be jealous of our sunshine because I suspect this is only the preliminary to a stifling hot and humid longer summer than usual since we sort of skipped through winter with spring-like weather.

The remodeling project will definitely be a cheering-up thing...though definitely overwhelming.

Awwww! Sorry your little brother moved away - that's one of the reasons I'm looking forward to returning to the West Coast next year so I can annoy my little brother and have him annoy my kids like only a little brother can do. ;)
