I Confess

I Confess was a discussion we had in the early days of MysteyNet. I thought it would be fun to bring it back and see how it goes.

You can confess your truest feelings here or just everyday things.

We are here to listen, so confess away.

Weelll I know that I cannot stand snails/slugs ... YUCK! have you ever tried to get one off of you? I don't know about the rest of the world but here in the South we have great big old very fat slugs at least as big or bigger than a grown man's thumb, that slid along our yards, outside patios and walls .. do not sit at nightfall on the brick or cement driveway or porch ... they come to climb on the wramth of your body. I have had one fall off my capris to land on my leg and the slime was impossible to get off ... no amount of slinging or slapping at it would get it off and many times I have stepped on these fat slimeballs and at first you feel a cold yucky slime then you hear a loud pop and you freak out (well at least I do anyway!) and you will spend the next hour trying to scrap their slimy gooey sticky adhering slug bodies off of your foot!! eeeeeewwwwww ... if you want information from me or my secret recipes just tie me up and threaten to put snails/slugs on me ... I will turn in my own Momma!!!

Since the left side of the brain controls the right side of the body (and vice versa), we now know that only left-handed people are truly in their right minds.

I confess we should all pitch in and get Bella some slug repellent.

All you need is some salt. They will shrivel up. They like beer too. You can put some beer in a bowl and I guess they will go in and drown. I have stepped on them before, but never hard enough to squish. I felt it before I put my weight down.

You can check out anytime you like...but you can never leave!

We have slugs that come in the driveway, especially after it rains. I've never stepped on one and reading this, I'm glad. I knew they had some kind of slime because they leave a trail of it behind them. I didn't know it was all gooey and sticky though. Eww.

I confess, Bella, I'm with you on how I feel about Halloween this year. I have the kids with me and all, but Dave won't be here to spend it with us. Even though he came down last weekend for my step-sister's wedding, there wasn't any time for pumpkin getting and carving and fun halloween stuff. This is the first year we didn't do Halloween stuff as a family and I just can't get into the mood. I haven't even put up our lights yet. It's just different when a part of your family isn't around to share it for the first time and I am sad too :(
but...again I confess, I won't tell anyone and I try to hide it, just don't think I am doing a good job of that :(

as for slugs and snails..i've seen one in my entire life. It was after a flood in our basement when I lived in the city and I was like 3 or 4. It was H-U-G-E and tried to stare me down if I recall correctly ;)

BabyM ... DO NOT make eye contact with a slug!!!!! They are E-vil ...

LOL! Bella.

BAM, take it from me, force yourself to do some halloween decorating and if you don't want to carve pumpkins let the kids paint them. Decorating doesn't have to be a lot. Buy some of thsoe stick on your window things. I had not decorated either until my granddaughter said "grandmom, you need some halloween decorations!" Try to do it for the kids' sake. It might make you feel better too. Here I am giving advice when I am in my own funk!

I am trying the Flylady regiment, although at admittedly my own pace. My apartment is such a mess and dirty that I haven't even called my apartment manager to have some things fixed in my apartment b/c I don't want the maintenance guy to see it. How bad is that? Luckily, I've caught Fran's insomnia and am waking about 3 or 4 and seem to have the drive at that time to do some cleaning. During the day, I don't.

Oh, and by the way, that was a confession.
