My Last Confessions...

On the first day of spring, I will conclude the last of my 33 confessions of a 33 year old mom.  Many were quite random or just plain weird, but that's me.  Take it or leave it.  

23.  Vacuuming can be one of the most satisfying tasks,        especially after having it my to-do list for a week.
24.  I have a bad habit of finding a song to almost any word my family says.  

25.  You know the new mom advice to sleep when the baby sleeps... I still take that advice quite seriously.  My youngest will be 3 next week.

26.  Instead of hitting the snooze button once as I did at 23, I now hit it at least 5 times every morning.    

27.  I have become more directionally challenged with each year of my life.

28.  One of my greatest dreams is to be on the Amazing Race with my amazing husband (who is not directionally challenged.)

29.  The smell of Vick's Vapor Rub can cause childhood memories of boarding school to come flooding back.  

30.  I admit that I am a pack rat with the desire for simplicity.

31.  I am planner who is easily let down by my own expectations.

32.  Crying can come easily to me... (chick-flicks, a sad book, talking in front of a crowd, my own imagination.)

33.  I am wholeheartedly in love with my family!


  1. I hope one day that you and Marty make it to the Amazing Race. :) I will watch and cheer!

    1. Tara, you are so sweet! If Marty won't do it with me one day, then you and I can do it. Can't you see it? "Home school mama's!" I think Sally would be proud.

  2. You have been, currently are, and always will be on an Amazing Race! Eugene Peterson paraphrases the author of Hebrews 12 - “Start running—and never quit! No extra spiritual fat, no parasitic sins. Keep your eyes on Jesus, who both began and finished this race we’re in. Study how He did it. Because He never lost sight of where He was headed—that exhilarating finish in and with God—He could put up with anything along the way: Cross, shame, whatever. And now He’s there, in the place of honor, right alongside God. When you find yourselves flagging in your faith, go over that story again, item by item, that long litany of hostility He plowed through. That will shoot adrenaline into your souls!” We applaud you and Marty for running such an amazing race. You are winners! Like the memories of cross country at North Stanly High School, always know your dad is standing tall at the top of the bleachers waving his towel proudly as he witnesses his daughter approaching the finishing line! We love our Amazing Racer!

    1. Daddy, your words mean so much to me! What a great reminder from Hebrews! I can totally see you in the bleachers. Thank you and Mama for always being so supportive of all of us girls. Love you!
