confessions…

Posted on Mar 15, 2012 in Lifestyle

1. Every time I see someone running out on the trail, I think, “Wow, they look absolutely miserable.” I used to think, “Wow, that looks fun!” I think my running days may be over.

2. Even though I only see them once a year or so and we aren’t all that close, I love my grandmothers-in-law. They are exactly what grandmothers should be like. Warm, concerned, loving, cookie-baking. My relationship with my grandmother was not the greatest, so I greatly appreciate the grandmotherly love that I get from them. Especially considering I’m just some random American girl who stole away their grandson.

3. I used to love McDonald’s Filet-O-Fish sandwich. It was my second favorite thing to get from any fast food restaurant (only behind chicken supreme chalupas from Taco Bell). I haven’t had one in probably five years, and really have no desire to eat one ever again. Not the same story for chalupas. I could totally go for a chalupa and a Mountain Dew right now.

4. I cried a lot this past weekend, because I found out my sister is moving away. The crying was just me being selfish and sensitive. I know the move is right for their family and you can’t fault them for that. I’ll just miss them, a lot. See? Selfish. So often the right decision isn’t the easy one. I’m trying to see the bright side of it, like a free place to stay on the West Coast whenever we want. :)

5. I have the world’s largest head. Seriously. 99 times out of 100, when I try on a hat from a store, it won’t fit on my giant noggin. I like to pretend it’s because I have thick hair, but deep down, I know it’s just because my cranium is supersized. It’s sad because I love wearing hats.

  1. I absolutely share #1. I have never thought runners looked like they were having a good time and there are times when I felt behind the curve since running seems to be “the thing to do”. I have since embraced the fact that I am not nor will I ever be a runner, and that’s okay.

    I too have a giant head! Hats never fit me.

  2. Delurking to comment on your first confession. I love running and most of my running is trail running. I may not have a smile on my face 100% of a run but that isn’t because I’m miserable. Running is my “me” time. I get introspective, reflective and sometimes I am in an almost meditative state. I always brighten when someone is coming towards me and I always greet people along the way. My greeting is often not reciprocated particularly by those who are walking. It’s ok that you don’t like running and that you don’t want to be a runner. It’s not for everyone. This is a rather broad judgment about trail runners. Why not celebrate the fact that these runners are out doing something healthy.

    On another note I would also be very sad if my only sister moved far away. She lives about 90 minutes away now and that is far enough!

    • I always smile at anyone passing me on the trail. Walkers, runners, skippers, everyone!

  3. MY HEAD IS SO BIG. And my mom’s is so small. And when we take pictures together, it looks like I could (and should… and might) eat her’s. What’s a girl to do with a big head?

  4. I have a huge head too!

    I keep trying hats on hoping one day they fit but it’s few and far between :)

  5. I have a huge head, too! My husband’s head is actually smaller than mine. We can both wear the same size hat, but it’s tight on me and roomy on him. I have so many pictures of the two of us that I hate because his small head makes mine look HUGE!
    Oh man… chalupas. I haven’t had one in about 10 years! Back in college, we would hit the drive through at Taco Bell after the bars closed. I would always get the chicken chalupa value meal (with a diet coke, of course). No wonder I gained about 30 lbs. after I turned 21!
    Let’s see… a confession? Well, this is no secret, but I’m obsessed with almost any reality show on Bravo. Real Housewives, Tabatha, Millionaire Matchmaker, Top Chef, and recently Love Broker…. I also love other stupid reality shows and spend WAY TOO MUCH TIME watching things that I record on DVR. And I also have my iPad out and spend too long playing “Draw Something” while watching said shows. It’s really bad. I need to stop. I need to quit tv.

  6. My head is big, too! Whenever I wear a hat in the winter, everything seems okay at first, but before long the damn thing slides up my head. So annoying! I wore a men’s hat last winter, and that was a little better though bulky, and this winter I got one with ear flaps and strings so it’s easy to tug down :)

  7. Here’s yet another large headed commenter.

  8. I am going to be SO UPSET when my sister and her husband move. It’s pretty much an inevitability what with him doing the whole doctor thing (he’s being matched to a residency program soon, and the closest one on his list is in York, PA) but I’ve gotten so used to her only being 45 minutes away. I’m totally selfish when it comes to my family!

  9. My sister has a huge head. She doesn’t have the thickest of hair but 95% of the time hats sit on the top of her head like kid hats. It cracks me up. Not helping I’m sure. However I think I have a HUGE noggin (and I legitimately have freakishly thick hair which doesn’t help) but when I go shopping it’s more 50/50 on the hats. So when I want to feel better I think of my sister. My daughter on the other hand has a small noggin and looks fab in hats.

  10. And I thought I was the only one with a big head! So relate to your post—I can’t fit any hat–really I can’t…

  11. Sadly, I have to join you with the Giant Heads Are Us club. I still periodically get caught up on the ‘one size fits all’ only to be heartbroken 20 seconds later.

  12. I have the complete opposite problem with hats. I don’t know why but I have a small or oddly shaped head and hats never fit me. When I find a hat that fits I get super excited!!
