Sunday Confessional, the oh boy, it’s been a while edition.

Heather says:


I haven’t even thought about the Sunday Confessionals in a long, long time.

However, last night, as I was preparing to wrap my daughter’s presents for today’s surprise party¹, I realized that Scotch Tape has yet to enter my home. I’ve managed to get glue sticks and scissors and odds and ends for the youngest to entertain herself, but tape for myself? Apparently not.

I sat on my bed and used a glue stick. Now THAT, my friends, is Saturday night entertainment. It’s an amateur wrapping job at best, but really all she’s going to care is that they are pink. Right? And cake, I’m sure she’s going to care that there is cake and Hello Kitty and My Little Pony – which there’s another confession right there. I frigging adore Pinkie Pie, quite possibly the most obnoxious cartoon character in the show and she makes me giggle while I’m in here trying to write.

Speaking of unhealthy cartoon affection. . . I am an unabashed Phineas and Ferb
fan. Hands down, it is the best cartoon ever made. Disney, you have won my respect with your geek references and general awesome. My phone’s ringtones? All Super Mario and Phineas and Ferb. . . Support calls for FeedBlitz? Doofenschmertz Evil Incorporated *jazz hands*

Finally, yesterday I decided to be all kinds of productive. I made two large batches of food for dinner. Why? I had an afternoon free and it’s back to football season, only now with the added complication of a forty minute drive on my days. (I moved). So there I was with a huge skillet of sausage, peppers, and onions and a gluten-free version of enchiladas. And then I lost all initiative and we had both for dinner. (Yes, there are leftovers, I had intended on making something else for dinner). Sigh. So much for well balanced on the days I don’t have to work.

So there we go, life is settling into a new normal but normal is not and never will be perfect. That said, I’m finally finding my equilibrium and that includes the ability to let myself relax and not feel like I have to work like a crazy workaholic person hopped up on deadlines.

What do you have for this week’s Sunday Confessional? Feel free to link to a post, if you’ve written it up elsewhere.

¹FYI it’s kind of difficult to give a kid a surprise party when a surprise party is pretty much the only thing they ask for. Thank goodness for good friends.

    I have to agree with your assessment of Fineas and Ferb. At first I thought it was a strangely drawn bunch of odd characters including a platypus? However, the PaiKids LOVE this show so I kept being exposed to it and little by little I saw why it was so popular (even though I think they miss a lot of the inside jokes meant for older viewers). One of the best episodes had a top 10 songs special that covered the best musical numbers from the show…yea, inorite?
    I like this Sunday confessional idea too. I do something similar called Guilty Pleasures where I will bravely reveal things that I just love even though others will mock me for admitting it in public. For example, Abba or the Monkees TV show.

      My favorite one I cannot for the life of me find. It’s the one where there is a giant mom-bot. The scene where she is climbing the skyscraper and cuts a look at the lazy dude in the recliner makes me laugh just thinking about it.
      As far as this series, it’s something I’ve been thinking of reviving, I just had to get things more in order here, first. And? Abba? You’re never going to hear the end of this, Pai.

    I posted earlier this week (at my work blog at the newspaper, not my personal blog) about the fire at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi, Kenya, into which I’ve flown five times on missions trips. Anyway, as I mentioned in my blog post, I was so tickled at the episode where Phineas, Ferb and the family go to Africa, because when they show an establishing shot of the airport it’s actually a fairly realistic cartoon drawing of JKIA. One of the animators has either been to Kenya or at least went online to look up the airport.
