So, during my blog stalking I noticed a blog post that many bloggers participate in on a weekly basis- this blog post is usually called (day of the week) confessions. So, since I am posting it on a Tuesday it would be called ‘Tuesday Confessions...’ which sounds like a porn title or something….. but don’t you worry, it is not. I feel like most people do it on Friday and they sort of just say things they did that week and put the saying ‘I confess’ before it. But I don’t really follow the rules of what most bloggers do. Lets get to it.
I confess… I am currently watching Elf. This is awful because November 10th. What has even gotten into me? I’ve never been one to obsess over Christmas.
I confess… I actually put the Christmas tree up in our apartment… again… NOVEMBER 11th. I confess… It was my moms birthday yesterday and we celebrated that night. She was really, really enjoying her time. There is just something so wonderful to see her truly happy even if its for a moment.
I confess… when I was feeling really down recently… I was sulking, crying and just inconsolable at one point… and during the whole melt down I scrolled past this on Instagram and it couldn’t have been a better sign from my sisters.
I confess… I received a really awesome e-mail the other day and it was just what I needed.
I confess…I have been hanging with Adam as he closes the restaurant, and that is around 2AM every night… so that means every night I have been eating tacos and other food you probably shouldn’t be eating at 2AM.
I confess… My weight and eating have been weighing heavy on me again, I never want to fall back into my eating disorder habits again so I need to nip this in the bud ASAP.
Those are my current confessions. I think this is a fun way to keep people updated on some things going on in this crazy-all over the place- mind of mine, so I will keep these coming.
Sampson is something else. I feel like one of those moms who says their kid is just the best, smartest, most athletic- meanwhile everyone else is smiling along acting as if they agree, when they want to call bullshit. But I am serious when I say Sammy is the best. He isn’t the smartest- he actually is pretty dopey, but it is part of his charm. He is obsessed with people… but mostly me. Like, to the point where he can’t be without me or he will have a panic attack. Privacy while you are showering? HA, yeah right. He guards the door like someone is going to try to barge in. Going to the bathroom… I forget what it was like being alone during that time. I feel like I have a child. I sort of do. He yells at me… I mean literally its a barking/screech telling me I haven’t been as attentive to his needs. I lay on the bed… he jumps up and sits on my face. He also thinks he is a lap dog and lays on top of me, not understanding that he is going to one day be massive… like 120lbs.
It’s kinda endearing. Today, Adam and Sampson walked me to our car so we had some more time together before we both went to work (I work from 9-5 and A works from 10-10 so are time is very limited). I arrived to the car, said my good-byes and headed to work. I heard sam barking a bit when I got in the car, but that was usually what he did whenever I left his side, so I plugged my phone in, turned the music on, and left. I pulled out of the lot and noticed Adam on the side walk with Sampson, Sampson was having a melt down. I waved to A, but he didn’t wave back. He called me later on in my drive to inform me that he had such a bad panic attack that I left, he refused to walk, was barking like a maniac, and tried chasing after cars thinking I was in them- so, Adam didn’t want to wave and attract his attention towards me or he would have went a little more crazy.
But can you imagine the people walking by him during his meltdown? Good lord.
I read that German Shepherds were a one person dog, but I didn’t realize to this extent. I love him so, so much regardless of his clingyness. He is just too cute. You should follow his instagram (yes, he has an instagram) because its awesome @SampsonTheShepherd
Here is a lil preview….
