I hope that the people reading my blog never think I have "the perfect little life". Because I don't. Like many bloggers, I choose to write about the happy and fun things going on in our life....at least most of the time...cause who wants to read about all the negative stuff anyway? There are a handful of blogs I read, that keep it more real, and I admire those women greatly. Anyway, Jen at Denton Sanatorium challenged her readers to keep it real today. So, I thought I would join in and give my readers a little dose of reality!
If I'm keeping it real today....I would tell you:
We almost missed the bus this morning. We were running around last minute because Brady needed to watch the last hour of the Biggest Loser that we dvr'd for him last night. Finishing Biggest Loser was also more important to him than brushing his teeth before school. It might be time for cousin Susie to visit us again and show my son her false teeth!
Remember the toilet paper pumpkins I made the other day? Well...now they look like this:
We needed the toilet paper!
So, I went to my class this morning at the gym and worked out for an hour and fifteen minutes...even though my monthly friend is due any second and I didn't feel like going. Only to come home and eat this:
I get so disappointed in myself for making these kinds of choices.
This has been laying in our backyard now for about a week. I really hate when things are left out in our yard all sanford and sonish. Drives me crazy! But not crazy enough! This is where my passive aggressive behavior comes in...and I want to see how long it takes before someone picks it up and puts it away. We'll see....
And yes, you're right...our yard does need mowed!
We had a garage sale back in May and haven't been able to use our garage since. I always think that's a husband thing...that he should keep it clean and organized. Anyway, the three of us tackled it together one Saturday afternoon a few weeks ago and it only took us about two hours to get it to where we could actually pull our van inside. Just in time for cold weather! Brady asked if we could take a before and after picture. I took a couple just to make him happy. I had no intentions of ever showing anyone our embarrassing mess...but since I'm keeping it real today...her it is:
I am cringing....
Not perfect...but much better.
Our Wednesday dinners are usually not very healthy. I have to pick Brady up from school in order to quick get home and get dinner before his tennis clinic. So, this is what it looks like most Wednesdays!
Hmmmm...I must have left the carrots over on the counter...
So there you have it my friends! I kind of actually feel a little better after this post! Maybe I should try to keep it real more often?!
My friend Nicole posted this quote the other day on her blog...and it totally reminds me, especially when reading blogs...that none of us are perfect. We are only showing you a tiny bit of who we really are. Alway keep that in mind.
Imagine that each of us is an iceberg. When you look out across the ocean, you see the top 10% of the icebergs in the water. That 10% is the part that we want others to see. It is important to remember that each of us has another 90% that we're "hiding" below the surface. Never compare your 90% to someone else's 10%. It's not a fair comparison.
