SAHM Confessions Friday

Most of my readers know that I am a stay at home mom and an online college student. Life can get really hard and I thought it would be fun to share 5 confessions from my week on Fridays. Life is not all gumdrops and lollipops just because I get to stay home with my child. It can be far from that.

Confession #1:

This is my planner for the week haha. I like to pretend I have it all organized and together but really I do not. I have a hard time planning my days out and do tend to waste a lot of time some days. This is a goal of mine though. I do however have a white board by my desk with important dates on it. Most stuff is plugged into my phone calendar as well.  I need a new planner and the one I want I can't get yet.

Confession #2:

School started back up for me on Tuesday. I did know what reading needed to be done for one class a few days prior to that. Have I read any of it yet? Nope. Do I plan to? Hmmmm big maybe on that one. I like to skim through and not read it word for word unless it is really important or I find it interesting. I am in three classes this semester and one start in April I believe. I have Anatomy and physiology 3, Healthcare Informatics, and Law and Ethics. It is going to be a loooong semester.

Confession #3:

My house is not as clean as I would like it to be at the moment. It is lunch time though so that is why there is bread on the floor. It will get cleaned up as soon as she is done eating. Oh yeah check out our car mat as a front door rug haha.

Confession #4

No fancy picture for the next two. I have not kept any goals I made for January so far. Am I disappointed in myself? Nope, I knew this would happen. Just because I have failed so far does not mean I can't pick up and start over. That's the best part of life. You do not have to wait for a new year to change yourself. You can do it at anytime!

Confession #5

This was left for last because it is personal and hard to share. Ever since I got pregnant with my daughter I have not wanted to be intimate with my husband. I breastfed for two and a half years and thought that when I stopped I would be me again. Nope. It is very infrequent that I am in the mood. WTH is wrong with me? I am feeling like a failure and that I am letting my husband down. Any advice on this would be awesome. Was anyone else this way after having a child and breastfeeding?

(Edited to add in one more)

Confession #6:

I have no idea what is for dinner! I really never do and do not get how some moms make out menus. Who has time to do that? If there is an easy way please share.

Please share your weekly confessions with me in a comment. Make it fun!


  1. My life feels like it is topsy turvy--I am semi retired but am a bookkeeper so the few clients I have are all calling and scheduling then rescheduling-then there are my Mom's Doc appts I have to drive her to not to mention my own--and it is SNOWING HARD out there--Confession-I feel so over whelmed at the moment I feel like hiding under my blanket for the duration!! Oh--I actually enjoyed Anatomy & Physiology--you may be pleasantly surprised--the legal one--well-----

    1. Hope your day goes smoothly! We had snow last week and looking forward to a weekend and early week in the 60's. Hope dr appt goes well.

  2. Angela I feel you. Right now I'm at home with Madison and I can barely get it together sometimes. Sometimes I don't even get out of pj's until it's really time for the kids to come home or I know I'm expecting a package. Can't have the UPS guy show up with me still in PJ's. As for intimacy, ever since I've had my hysterectomy I've been in the same position. I thought the fact that I can no longer have kids would make me want more but instead it's the complete opposite. Maybe we need some therapy for that. :)

  3. Before we can be honest with others we need to be honest with ourselves. It seems you're on your way.

  4. Kudos to you for putting all of this out in the world. My house tends to be a disaster zone (I won't let my son in the guest room. It's bad.) And I do have a mostly empty planner - I like to fill it up week by week, rather than assign myself stuff weeks in advance. :)

  5. Thank's for your honesty. I think Pinterest is a false misrepresentation of what life is really like. People there want you to believe they are well organized and got it together. Truth is, most of us aren't always so on top of things. As for intimacy, I'm in the same boat. I think every woman at some point gets into a rut. The first step is to love yourself. Once you do, that confidence comes back. Therapy may help as a hidden issue could exist that you may not be consciously aware of.
