I confess that I'm off to PM the big E with some of the good ole juicy gossip that she craves oh so much!
I confess to being a gossip whore and I wish I knew who E was and what the gossip was, just because.
Also, I confess to reveling in a little schadenfreude right now. I realize this is bad, yet I do it anyway.

YAY!!! I was actually thinking that while reading the responses to one of your posts. I you Angela
If God took care of all of us all the time, delivered on all our prayers, and never gave us more than we can handle, why in the world did my sweet, wonderful, 100% Catholic grandmother watch Soviet soldiers shoot her dad, have her mom die in a German work camp, and herself be imprisoned by Nazis for years??? All three of those sayings piss me off beyond belief as do the people who think that those constitute "advice"
Two Christian APAers now post in secular confessions, which is cool. I like hearing other people's voices and this thread seems pretty open.
I changed my name form Melanie_777 to AbbeysMom.
The confessions thread made to over 1000 posts.
That's all I can think of.
I confess that I got told "not to get my panties in a wod" when I replied to my ignorant cousin who sent me the gay-bashing e-mail. I e-mailed her back and told her that her thong must be so high up her @ss that her brain must be rotting. LOL. This will start some major drama between her mother and mine for sure. Her mom already resents my mom because me and my sister have pretty good lives whereas her 2 kids are leading pretty rough lives.
But... it turned out great. They brought wine and bread and cheese. The lady friend was verrrrry interesting, either that or a compulsive liar, which makes her interesting either way. She used to work for the UN, and for our govt and would not give more details, and lived in Taiwan and was in Bosnia during the was, working ostensibly for orphanages and refugees but also carrying firearms and setting up people in safe houses. She told some pretty terrifying stories.
Anyway, the food turned out okay. Nothing I would have cooked for a dinner party, but it wasn't bad. I got complimented on it. But it was nice to meet someone new and interesting, and see dh perk up and try to figure out exactly what branch of govt work she was in while she tried to sidestep his questions and still hint around.
Wow, that does sound like an interesting dinner. Much better to have okay food when you have a really interesting guest. Next time you can have good food and a boring guest.

I confess I'm relieved your dinner turned out well. I think if it had been me i would have switched gears and made an old standby dinner that I knew was well liked. I only experiment with new food when it's just Tredhed and I - cause we can order pizza if it's a complete disaster.
What a great thread!! I haven't been in this room in ages, but I haven't really been on the forums in ages so that's my excuse. I obviously have not read through all 42 pages though. I'll write some confessions later!
Momma/Wife/Psych Nurse (these things go together better than you'd think)
YAY for perky boobies!!
I confess that I am looking online for jobs for DH. While doing so I am seeing TONS that I would LOVE to apply for - medical secretaries, etc - and it kinda makes me sad........
I confess I don't know how FIL and sMIL spent so much on groceries.. There really isn't that much food in the house...
Lydia, that sounded like a terrible situation to be put in, but congrats on pulling it off so well! I LOVE compulsive liars at dinner parties, they make it so interesting!
Angela - I haven't seen the post you're feeling invisible about yet, but
I confess we just officially got another cat. If we stay at this rate of animal acquisition, I will be a crazy cat lady.
I confess that I saw Janeen's post about being submissive and I realized that I am very comfortable with my submissiveness in our relationship, but very ashamed of it when I tell other people.
