Confessions of a Twenty-year-old Drama Queen

Sometimes I don't like to admit it, BUT
  • I'm afraid of thunder in the night. I always end up tensing up and curling into a ball next to Dallas. If it's really bad, he'll end up rubbing my back until I calm down. I'm afraid it's going to come through the window to strike me.
  • Every morning when I wake up I make a goal to take a nap that day.
  • Sometimes, while reading, I become a binge eater. I'll pound 10 oatmeal chocolate chip cookies without realizing it.
  • When my kids wake up- either for the day or from their naps- I let them stay in their rooms, particularly Annie, until they start to cry. Awful, I know.
  • I have a new found love- Nature Valley Granola Nut Clusters. Preferably in almond. I eat the entire bag in a sitting.
  • I don't think there will ever be a sitcom greater than Seinfeld.
  • I think I may enjoy running more than theater. Maybe it's because it's easier to find the time to run. And it's cheaper.
  • I really really really wish I didn't have to get ready every day.
  • So, sometimes, I don't get get ready.
  • I frequently forget to return my Redbox movies after one night.
  • I like the occasional Rap song.
  • I HATE wiping noses. Probably worse than wiping bums.
  • Sometimes I tell Will that I ate my vegetables before I came to the dinner table so I don't have to eat any.
  • I also sneak treats without my kids seeing so I don't have to share.
  • I miss going to school.
  • I love buying school supplies.

In spite of all these things, I'm still normal. Right?

I was just talking to a friend about sneaking treats so my kids won't see. Especially fruit snacks in the car...I have it mastered.

The list you just gave are the reasons we all love you! You wouldn't be Amylee if you didn't do those things. Confession: I do some of those same things.

You crack me up!! I miss you. And here is why we are friends: given the chance, I would eat only vegetables for dinner. I love them!

Heidi said...

We should go school supply shopping together! I love them as well!

These "confessions" make me realize why I like being around you so much. You are not afraid to admit the truth....and it's funny!

Amber said...

You're a cutie. And I like posts like this.

HAHA. They were all good, but the veggies one REALLY got me. Nice.

Terra said...

Lol! I have to agree with you on a couple of those!! Especially letting the kids stay in their rooms til they cry! "Mockinjay" is so good by the way... I have just about finished it!

I'm smiling because many of those things would be on my list of confessions, particularly sneaking treats without the kids seeing. I do, however, try to keep plenty of treats and snacks around for them so they don't feel denied.
And as far as running goes, there is nothing like it. I love it, too. I just don't do it much anymore because my running partner moved away and partners are hard to find. I won't run by myself...too many weird things happen here.

I love that you came up with this post, so funny. I admit I have many of the same confessions. You are just such a fun friend. Thanks for being you.

You're so still normal! This post made me feel better about some of the things I do too!
