It's Been 1 Week Since My Last Confession...

It's that time again!

Vodka and Soda

It's time for Humpday Confessions, hosted by Kathy of Vodka and Soda! Hooray! If you'd like to link-up your confessions, head on over to Kathy's blog, read some fun blogs, and confession your secrets to the internet. Here's my weekly dose...

- Super obvious confession: I am not Catholic, so I've never said "It's been X weeks since my last confession." 

- Ever since I discovered that there's a vending machine on the floor above ours (the 4th floor), it's become increasingly difficult to convince myself that I don't need Skittles or chocolate in the middle of the day. (Bonus confession: There's a vending machine on the 1st floor that was far less tempting for some reason. Apparently, I'm so lazy I won't be swayed by a 3-floor elevator ride, but 1 is too much for me to resist.)

- I feel a pang of sadness when I am in the vicinity of a Starbucks and I don't actually require coffee or another Starbucks beverage.

- Because my husband spent 10+ years of his adult life sans health insurance (don't even get me started...) he has no idea how it works. Therefore, I schedule most of his appointments and get referrals, because being a patient is practically my second job. Sometimes it drives me crazy, but I secretly like that he needs me to do it. (I guess not-so-secretly anymore.)

- I am considering investing in a Keurig for when I leave my job because I am entirely spoiled by being able to make coffee in under a minute. Yes, I have a perfectly wonderful, large, coffee pot that makes good coffee. No, I don't want to have to deal with it. We'll see which wins out, my lazy side or my cheap side. Maybe I'll just stop drinking coffee all together. Ha, that's adorable.

- I am really bad at leaving my face alone if I have a zit. I'm also bad at not picking at cuts or scratches. This is why I currently look like I have face plague. (Thanks, stupid zit and compulsive face-touching.)

- I love the way pedicures look, but I really don't like people touching my feet. Problematic.

- Whenever I find a stink bug in our condo, which is often these days, I make Ken remove it. The other night, he wasn't home and there was one stuck in the lamp in the living room. I thought about leaving it there until he got home, but then it escaped, so I had to deal with it myself. I know they can't hurt you and bugs don't really freak me out, but the stink bugs fly so erratically that I have this fear that one is going to get stuck in my hair or something. #irrationalconcerns

- I still haven't quit the damn gym. Someone send reinforcements.

- I got my brows waxed on Monday at the Benefit Brow Bar at Ulta and the aesthetician yelled at me for overplucking and made me promise not to touch them for 2 weeks. THIS IS GOING TO BE IMPOSSIBLE. (Did I mention that I have a problem with leaving my face alone? This extends to hair pulling. SIGH.)

- I am really looking forward to starting medical school... mostly because it means I can buy new school supplies.

- I spent 10 minutes looking for one of the cats this morning. In a 1200 square foot condo. I found her, but felt stupid for looking for so long.

- I like my cats more than I like most people.

- Sometimes, I am exhausted by the people in my life. Then I feel like a bad person for being exhausted by them. I try to remember that I must be at least as exhausting to them and they haven't fired me yet, so I should be more tolerant. (Then I drink wine.)

- Ken started a job at Lowe's that is theoretically a summer job, but it started last week, so he's working 2 jobs right now. I miss him because he's home late a lot of weeknights, but I also totally love having the condo to myself.

- If there are notifications about texts, emails, or voice mails on my phone, I absolutely have to take care of it or I will lose my mind.

- I just did a happy dance at my desk because the vet left a message on my cell phone that Luna does not have a vaccine-induced sarcoma. YAY! MY CAT DOESN'T HAVE CANCER! Our adventures on Saturday were worth it!

- I can't go to bed at night unless all of the doors in the house are shut, there aren't any drawers or cabinets open, and the TV in our bedroom has to be straight (not angled at the bed). The only door that is allowed to be open is our bedroom door, and it can only be open wide enough for the cats to come and go, so I use a door-stopper. Ken thinks I am insane. He is probably right.

And my personal favorite for this week:

- I received a resume for someone who wants to take my job when I leave. Under "Other Experience" he listed a few research societies, "marathon runner (8)" and "cheese enthusiast". I kind of want to hire him simply because he had the balls to put that on his resume, and also, I am also a cheese enthusiast, and while this has absolutely nothing to do with the job, I just like him more already for his love of cheese.

I was unaware that the "personal tidbits" part of resumes was still a thing, but apparently... it is.

So, that's a peek into my exact brand of crazy. What are some of your confessions? Leave them in the comments... I promise not to tell anyone!
