Friday Confessions

I confess I kept Stratton away from the baby sitter on Tuesday and Wednesday because I was scared he would get sick from one of the other kids there.

I confess I am STILL paranoid of getting sick and throwing up. I can do diarrhea and I can do stuffy nose with a cough. Throwing up is a no go in my book. I can't do it.

I confess I would rather sit in the fetal position and writhe in pain for hours on end than throw up just once.

I confess I have been doing shots of Emergen-c like a sorority girl at a lady's night.

I confess Lysol is my best friend right now. As well as antibacterial wipes, bleach, hand sanitizer, and if I could I would wear a medical mask around.

I confess I got some awesome new products this morning that I am SO eager to share with you all.

I confess I made a stop motion animation film over the week this week and it actually turned out pretty neat!

I confess I am SO ready for the weekend so Derek and I can get some relaxation time with the little man.

I confess I am ready for shirts and t-shirt weather again even though it's only the end of January.

I confess I think my birth control is making me crazy. Well the fact that it works is awesome but the fact that (this may be TMI so if you don't want to read about periods then stop NOW and go to the next confession) this month I was 12 days late, the month before I was 7 days late and the month before that I was 6 days late is driving me insane. It's super frustrating.

I confess I am getting my hair done this weekend and I can not wait! I love getting my hair done.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I'll have fun new exciting pictures on Monday.

Five Question Friday

1. Do you swim in the winter?
I like to take Stratton up to the college and swim every now and then but I haven't yet this year. It's just too dang cold outside. 

2. Do you love or hate winter?
I have a love/hate relationship with the winter. I love that it gets cold and I love snow. But, living in SE Missouri, all we ever get it ice. Not to mention the road out to when I work is never cleared so it is horrible to drive in. So, mostly no I do not like the winter but it has it's perks.

3. Do you put makeup/actual clothes on when you know you're going to be home all day with just family?
No way! Why waste makeup and a cute outfit on hanging around the house. Not to mention I want to be comfortable and not have to worry about smudging my mascara down my face while I'm crying over teen mom  or Dear John. Haha.

4. How old were you when you had your first alcoholic beverage?
Oh good golly. Well the first time I ever tried a beer was when I was in 7th grade. My friend Ali and I snuck one out of the fridge at the barn and tried it. Needless to say we wound up pouring most of it out. The first time I drank socially was when I was 17 or 18. It was Boones Farm strawberry wine. It was delicious going down. Coming up was not as good.

5. How many ill calls in a 12 month period do you think are acceptable?
I'm guessing this is referring to sick days. This is a tough one. I think each person is different. I get 80 hours of vacation time and 40 hours of non-paid personal time. I think I use more of the vacation time on being home with Stratton when he is sick. So, I guess the 120 hours or 15 days that I get is pretty reasonable.
