A confession

April 13, 2018

Okay, so I have been living alone for about eight months, and I have discovered there’s a thing I do when I am alone that I would not do if other people were around. I kept noticing myself doing this thing and being horrified, but I still do it anyway. And to be clear, this is a thing that I hate when other people do and that I would never allow my daughter to do.

As I mentioned, my mom is visiting me for the next two weeks. Earlier today, I told her about this abhorrent behavior, and she laughed at me. She laughed! “Living alone means you can get away with anything,” she said.

And as proof that this is only a thing I do when I’m alone, I found myself about to do it but since my mom is here, I didn’t. So I just don’t even know.

So yes, I confess: I keep kicking the crisper door in the refrigerator closed with my foot like some kind of animal.

I hate when people do this! And yet. I live alone and devolve into…I don’t even know what to call this debauchery.

So now I just have to make myself stop. Maybe having my mom here will get me back on the right track.

At the beginning of the year when I made my goal lists, I initially had two things on there that I ultimately deleted....

New Year, New Goals

New Year, New Goals

Welp, the first week of the new year has been and gone, so I guess it's time to think about goals for 2024. Reading...

    Hah! Never kicked a crisper door shut but I have pushed many a cupboard door shut with my foot. What else are you supposed to do when your hands are full????

      But my hands aren’t full! I just don’t want to bend down! Awful.

    lol – I do it too, but I was unaware that it was abhorrent.
