I confess...

With a long weekend on the horizon, I've been scrambling at work to get a bunch done. So today's confessional is going to be short and sweet.

I confess...

I hope that you find some time to honor our fallen heroes this weekend. My former classmate, Staff Sgt. TJ Dudley has been on my mind this week. It's not right that he was gone at age 29 during his sixth (SIXTH!!) deployment...only weeks before he was due to come home to his wife and three children.

Freedom comes at a steep price. Let's all be mindful of that when life gets a little crazy and patience wears thin.

I confess...

On an un-related and much light note, I somehow completely missed that last Friday was my sixth blogiversary. We'll have to celebrate with a giveaway next week.

I Don't Want to be an Adult Today

Yesterday, the Mister and I picked up our tax returns for 2014, and as expected, we owed money. His changing of jobs laster has made him happier, but our tax situation is more complicated as a result - because quarterly estimated taxes.  As a result, we had another budget discussion, and we have to tighten our belts.

This is part of being a grown up - taxes and budgets and meal plans. Gah, it's enough to make your head spin.

I don't want to be an adult today.

If I didn't own a business or have to work or be a grown up, this is what my day would look like:

Sleep in a late as I want...not as late as the puppy lets me.




Eat cookies with my coffee for breakfast.

Go shoe shopping all morning, and not worry about the credit card bill that's going to follow.

Go to day class in jujitsu and then have a leisurely lunch.




Give myself a mani/pedi because that always falls to the bottom of the to-do list.

Watch a movie, drink some wine and snuggle with my pups.


So today, I just don't want to be an adult. Luckily, there's a linky party for that happening at The Grand Adventures of Me. What would your day look like if you didn't have to be a grown up?
