Because confession is good for the soul.

I confess…

I meant to blog every day this week and got distracted throughout the day. There are 3-4 half-written posts hanging out in my drafts that I really need to finish up. But you know, I’d much rather be enjoying real life so that’s the way it goes.

I confess…

Wednesday I stopped by the Mister’s dojo to say hi and to talk to his sensei. I  asked the Mister to get me a gi for my birthday. It’s the first baby step to me beginning jujitsu training with him. Except that I won’t really be training with him because he’s been doing it for 10 years. So I’ll be a white belt, and he’s working toward his third degree black belt. We’ll be on the same mat, but we won’t exactly be working on the same techniques.

Last weekend the Mister helped a friend film her senior thesis on jujitsu. All three “actors” are at least black belt.

I confess…

Next week our house should be turning into a bit of a construction area next week. The Mister and I have decided that we really need to finish our bathroom/hallway renovation up. We started it 4 1/2 years ago when we moved in. It’s kind of time to get it done.

We also got word from our insurance company that we are getting a new roof. Last Tuesday the Mister found a leak in the bathroom, and I’ve been so worried about what we were going to do. It’s a relief to know now that the appropriate repairs will be paid for.

I confess…

Yesterday the Mister finally let me order cable television. We haven’t had any cable in the entire time we’ve been together, not even basic cable. That’s not a bad thing, but this year I begged him for it because I want to be able to watch football at home. The first Carolina Gamecocks game is Sept. 3, and I really, really wanted to be able to watch from home. And now I can =)

I confess…

In looking back through my photos to find a football picture, I discovered that I don’t have very many. Considering how many of my fall weekend involve the Gamecocks, I really should take more pictures this year.

I’m also linking up this week with Fabulous but Evil and Mrs. Monologues. They are doing a weekly linky party, and if you’re blog fits the category, you link up.

My blog started as a wedding blog but quickly turned into a day-to-day general blog. I share details of friends weddings and the occasional recipe or fitness/health tip. I do quite a few linky parties and try to spread the word for causes I believe in. And I have an on-going love affair with shoes and coffee.
