End of Week Confessions

Just a little miscellany - nothing for the Enquirer or anything. (a couple of those are in the very fine print at the bottom. tee hee!)

I often have a slice of cheese before bed.

I have a couple pairs of pants on which the hem has come loose, and I've been fixing them with double sided tape - for months!

I had to cancel a dentist appointment last August and told them I would call to reschedule. I haven't called yet. (I really did intend to! I promise!)

Sometimes when I'm home alone and I don't feel like talking to anyone, I just don't answer the phone - no matter who is calling.

I have a tattoo.

I (almost) never (about 95% of the time) try things on before I buy them. And I'm not the best at returning things quickly. (I once tried to return 2 pairs of pants to a store that had a 30 day return policy. I'd bought the pants 32 days before I went in to return them. They were only going to give me about 25% of what I paid for them, so I kept them and didn't shop there for almost a year. Turns out I tried the pants on again a couple of months later and I love them.)

I have never had a bikini wax. Once after getting my hair cut short, I had a couple small patches of hair on my neck waxed, and it hurt like a mother! For a couple of days! I think I would have to take a couple of sick days from work if I did the bikini wax.

I hate my freckles (actually a combination of freckles and moles. but I hate the word "moles" so I just call them all freckles.) (Oh yeah - and a growing number of age spots too.)

I am secretly thrilled with the fact that I don't yet have gray hair (a very few strands here and there). And I'm the oldest of 4, and everyone else does. (Now, of course I'm going to wake up in the morning and be totaly gray! Yikes!)

I love it when my husband is out of town for a couple days, and I have the bed to myself.

I occassionally sneak in a load of laundry during "peak hours." (power bill is cheaper if we stick to a special plan where we use minimally between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. Monday through Friday.)

I spent a night in jail when I was 18.
I went skinny dipping with one of the guys from a band after the bar closed.


  1. What a scandalous miss you are, Janet! ;o) The cheese in bed and laundry at peek hours had me concerned though...LOL...just kidding! Actually I have an abhorrence of my freckles & moles too...the cost to them removed scares me even more! I do the same thing with the phone...when I don't feel like talking I don't answer... (shock-horror!)...I'm not a phone person--LOL! Since you didn't elaborate on the tattoo shall we assume it's "unmentionable"? ;o) Have a great weekend, Janet :o)

  2. HI JAnet. I'm a new Blogspot member. I found your blog and I have to say: Nice posts, funny. I like also how you described yourself. I will follow your blog. Ciao Italo.

  3. I think my comment disappeared! I was saying how much I love cheese before bed. Yum!

  4. haha great confessions! i never answer my phone either..

  5. I agree great confessions. I can relate to a few of them. I have a confession you will laugh about. We have the Yuma temperature on our bottom toolbar. We go there in October for 6 months every year so we like to "yearn" about the weather before we go!

  6. Janet, I love love love the latest experiment in watercolour! Xcellent! The confessional was not only not scandalous -- it was fun! I like to have a little snack before I join Little Nemo in Slumberland too.
    Take good care.
