She's back...

Not sure why, but Debbie Downer is back.  I'll try to keep this post short so she doesn't rear her ugly head and get cranky.  Let's see what I can give you confession-wise

  • I over ate (as usual) at my parents house this weekend.  Between Jay, my sister, and I, we polished off a bag of Doritios in less than 30 minutes.
  • Then she & I split a bottle of Yellow Tail Riesling.  I could do that more often!
  • I felt disconnected most of the weekend - I was happy to be with family, but overall was melancholy and I couldn't figure out why.
  • Last night I was bitching about something someone had said to me that rubbed me the wrong way.  Jay nicely told me I was being petty and to let it go.  I wish I didn't get offended so easily.
  • He wants to spend Saturday weeding the flower beds around the house.  My first free Saturday since we've moved in.  Keeping in mind that my living room still has saw dust on the windows and ledges.  The weeds can wait.
  • I've been feeling very anxious the past few days.  It always comes in the spring - I suspect its allergy related even though my allergist knows of no such correlation between nerves and allergies.  I swear its there.  I can feel it. 
Now its your turn!  Don't forget to link up over at the Sisterhood.

True Confessions


  1. I feel ya on the riesling.

    And I HATE weeding flower beds. Alan told me the other day that he would make a deal with me; he'd mow the back yard while I weed flower beds...NO DEAL! That's not even close to fair.

  2. I love riesling!!! I hope you have a better week!

  3. Sorry to hear than you felt melancholy this weekend. Sometimes that happens when one least wants it to. Want me to write a little memo to Ms. Downer?

    Oooo, I hear you on the wine, except I'm more of a Merlot girl. :-)

    Hmmm...that's interesting, about anxiety and allergies. I remember you saying that you have asthma, so I'm wondering if your mind/body gets anxious, anticipating an asthma attack? And given that allergens are one of the things that can cause that, I could see one being conditioned over time to get nervous about it during allergy season.

  4. yeah, i've been anxious too lately. looks like you need another bottle of riesling!! LOL :) i'm kidding. sort of. it'll clear up, though, seriously. ebbs and flows, baby, ebbs and flows.

  5. Life's like a roller coaster - ups and downs. If you went around in circles, that would be boring and make you dizzy. Hugs!

  6. I'll share the bottle with you next time! Don't worry about feeling down, it's OK. We all feel like that. No reason to be down, we just feel that way. But don't ask Hubs, he will say it happens every time Aunt Flo comes to visit! Have a great week!!!

  7. I'm sorry you're feeling down. I think we all have those days. Anxiety isn't fun at all ~ I wonder if Pubsgal could be right about your mind/body anticipating an asthma attack?

  8. I'm so sorry Debbie Downer is back. Let me at her. I'll put a smile on her face with a big hug! :)

  9. Debbie Downer is such a pain in the ass.

  10. Brooke! Oh my goodness. I have been feeling the EXACT same way and I just said to my husband I think it is the allergies. He rolled his eyes and said I was being silly but seriously, I NEVER get like this. Bitchy for sure. Totally mean. I can't stand myself like this...

  11. love riesling!!! I hope you have a better week!
