10 Confessions from 2013: Why not get some things off your chest?

In the spirit of coming clean and starting the new year off with a blank slate, here are 10 confessions of mine from 2013:



I ate a chocolate bunny from my daughter’s Easter basket, then replaced it with a smaller one I bought at the 75% off sale at CVS before she realized her bunny was gone.



I did the same thing again at Halloween, only I haven’t replaced it . . . yet.



I quit Weight Watchers because I thought I could do the program better on my own.



I made three trips to my 7-year-old’s elementary school, on three separate days, to apologize to her for biting her head off when she acted like a second-grader. Then I realized I needed more sleep.



I drank Kombucha twice—and liked it!



I tried to verbally offend a TSA agent in Nashville for searching my HAIR after I had already been x-rayed and scanned with a metal detector (Give a Sistah a Break!).



I did it again in Asheville when an agent confiscated my Vaseline because it was “technically a liquid.”



I refused to even attempt 7 edible, unique, organic, low-cost, low sodium, vegetarian, gluten-free, soy-free, non-raw, meals per week when my husband went through a brief, but extreme health craze. Now we’re just mildly extreme.



I left my husband at home and car-less twice on Sunday mornings when he wasn’t ready to leave for church on time.



Then I got angry when he wouldn’t do the same thing to me when I purposefully took my time getting ready on one of those days when staying home seemed like the most I could do.



Whew! I feel better.



Feel free to share a couple of yours.

    I’ve done these… this makes me cry. Sometimes I feel like the worse person in the world. How could I do this or think that. Thank you for sharing this Sherry!

      You’re very welcome, Jeannette, but please know that you are not the worst person in the world; you’re just human. The worst person in the world thinks s/he is absolutely fine, and has no perceived need for Christ or community.

  2. I love your list because I can relate. I’d like to write a list like this for you, BUT I can’t remember the things I’ve done! With encroaching age, every day is a new day! What did I do yesterday?

      Fortunately or unfortunately, at least a couple of people are anxious to remind me of mine every single day–whether I like it or not!

    Read this to my friends. We all had a good laugh. It’s good to not take ourselves too seriously!

      Some things you just HAVE to laugh about.
