Humpday Confessions

Halle – freakin – lujah we made it to hump day again.

Vodka and Soda
Time to do my favorite post of the week and link up with Kathy over and Vodka and Soda – duh.

Here’s this week’s h-u-m-p-d-a-y confessions…

…I confess… I had my lady doctor appointment last week and told her I struggle with the same thing all girls do – losing weight and body image. She was all concerned and thought we should do a blood test to check out my thyroid levels. I should have just stopped her right there and said no, this isn’t something caused by my body, it’s caused by me liking to eat and drink…but I didn’t. Because secretly I wanted it to come back with an issue as proof it wasn’t my fault (it was totally normal btw) and also because I didn’t have it in me to say “no, I just really like pizza, burgers and beer, that’s why I’ve put on weight…”

…I confess… yesterday morning I brought in Gunner’s Kong to fill it with peanut butter like I always do before I leave for work and it was completely covered and full of ants. Instead of leaving it outside I rinsed it in my kitchen sink and watched all the little ants drown, realizing after the fact how gross it was that I just did that. Sorry if you find an ant in your dirty dishes roommates – I just didn’t have a rational thought for how to get rid of them otherwise…

…I confess…I have 98 pairs of shoes, or did. No, really I do. Post tomorrow all about it!

…I confess… more than once I have considered taking a nap on the toilet at work. It’s just so quiet and I’m always so exhausted and when I prop my head up on my elbow my eyes slowly start to close and… then I snap out of it and realize how stupid it would be to nap on a toilet…

…I confess… I hate the fact you have to buy a gift to go to a wedding. Yes I get it, it’s that person’s special day and it’s a tradition. And yes I fully expect to get an ass load of gifts for my own wedding. But I hate that in order to go to a wedding a gift is expected or at the very least a gift card. I mean sometimes I go to weddings of friends or people I have never even bought a birthday or Christmas present for, so why do I have to get you one now? And how am I a good enough friend to be invited if we haven’t had said gift exchanging in our past relationship? Ugh shoot me now – we have a reception to go to this weekend and THEY WERE ALREADY MARRIED last year. So it’s basically just a reason to get gifts, thus my frustration. It better be open bar… (oh and they each had a bachelor/bachelorette party this week before this reception, but again THEY’RE ALREADY MARRIED so I don’t understand it. I get it you got married quick so she could have a green card but neither of you are a bachelor of any kind anymore.)

…I confess…it is taking every tiny bit of will power I have not to shop at the semi annual sales of my two favorite places (BBW and VS). Since I am in debt (as previously discussed) and poor I have completely cut my spending on things other than groceries/food. So I don’t get to do my usual stock up of body products and new underwear and it’s KILLING ME. Going from a shopaholic to a no shopping of any kind kind of person is giving me all sorts of anxiety. It physically hurts I swear…

…I confess… I sliced into the tip of my thumb and into the nail last week with a big kitchen knife I was using to chop lettuce. BLOOD, blood everywhere...

Ok I’m losing focus and need to stop here.

Go link up so I can read all your crazy confessions!

    1. I know - when you are part of a wedding you basically have 3x the gifts because as a bridesmaid you're at every event. It's gift overload!

  2. I think in general the wedding thing is out of hand. Basically the couple spends a ton of money so everyone can have a fancy party. Then, you have to pay them back for the pleasure of attending and your gift has to be in proportion to whatever amount they decided to spend. You had no say at any point, so why are you paying for their party? And how do gifts help anyway? If it was money maybe.

    1. I totally agree! I think there are some weddings - say a relative or really close friend that gifts make sense, but not every single wedding!

  3. ugh, i would love my doctor to tell me it wasnt my fault either, isnt that horrible? of course its because i eat too much ice cream and chips.
    it bugs me about the present thing too, and it bugs me more now after my own wedding because i have a wedding this weekend and i remember how much they gave me, so i'm giving them the exact same thing. another couple we went to a wedding a couple months ago didn't get us anything, so bitches aint getting anything. also wtf about your friends having parties even though they are married already? the reception i understand, but the parties? the only way i would do that is if it was a secret they got married for the green card, which obviously they didnt keep a secret.

  4. I always consider taking a nap on the toilet at work, but since the bathroom is right in our Office (yes, it's weird and gross) I kind of can't. And no worries about the ants in the dishes, you needed your peanut butter!!

  5. Actually, giving a gift isn't really required! However it's always just assumed that you do. It's even worse when you give a gift and don't even get a thank you card back. Rude!!

    1. Not required eh? I may consider that for this second reception this weekend...

  6. I am totally guilty of wishing for the thyroid thing too. A friend of mine did and when they corrected it, she lost a ton!

    1. It's kind of depressing we both wish we had a condition like that - eeek the things we'd do to shed some lbs!

  7. I feel like I should know this, but do I have to buy a gift for a wedding if I'm only going to the after party? We got one of those invites that says "Join us at the church and then after dinner for dancing and drinks..." Never done that before and we can't even make it to the ceremony... so do I have to bring a gift? I don't know if there's a rule or expectation there. It's a friend of my boyfriend.... hmmmm... Also, 98 pairs of shoes ?!?! Holy moly!!

    1. I'm right there with you on the confusion - only the "party" this weekend actually says on the invite the couple is asking for Home Depot gift cards, so at least I have some direction. I'd say if it's a friend of your BF he is either in charge of getting the gift or you don't get one...

  8. 98 pairs of shoes??? I thought I had a lot but there's no way I'm even in the same competition as you .. haha

    1. Well make sure you check in tomorrow - I'm doing a whole big post on it and how I forced myself to purge 20+ pairs! I think it's reason to buy a few news pairs...

  9. I've never experienced our PB kongs with ants thank allah, otherwise, we'd probably just be down a kong because NOPE, not dealing with that.
    My best friend had a wedding shower and a reception and she expected gifts at both. Wait, what? Nope sorry. I'm already travelling 8 hours to get there and you didn't make me a part of the wedding party, hope you like this card with cash. At what point do couples realize it seems greedy to OTHER PEOPLE?!

    1. Kongs are expensive though! I think that's why I was like screw it - I'm just going to rinse it off haha. And totally agree with the wedding and the whole shower/wedding double gifting thing! It's insane!
