I do not understand

There are many things I do not understand.
Here are some things I do not understand right now.
I do not understand why......
I gain weight when I quit drinking diet coke, quit being the key word here
When my hair is short I want it long, and when my hair is long I want it short
I wait so long to get my hair colored and have the darkest roots I have ever seen. It is embarrassing.
On earth Bella would choose Edward over Jacob. I mean seriously............
I can spend hours watching a TV show, but find it so hard to spend time in the Word
My face looks like it is going through puberty, hello acne at the ripe ole age of TWENTY SIX
The change I continue to pray for seems so far away and unreachable
People find it so hard to believe that my husband wants a career in music. Its our normal, get over it.
I feel like I need to eat something sweet after every meal, I once heard if you eat a Hershey's Kiss after every meal this will take away your sweets craving. Doesn't work for me.
Reba isn't on TV anymore. It is hand's down one of the funniest shows ever. Don't knock it till you've watched it!
We spend so much blasted money on food. I can't find a good coupon system that works for us.

There are many other things but this is all for now. I have important things to do right now like watch Friday Night Lights because it is amazing. And also eat this wonderful new pasta dish I found online at $5 recipes. It is delish.

I love Reba! It still comes on re-runs!

Newlywed and Decorating said...

Oh, I really wish that Hershey Kiss trick worked. That would be amazing :) And I've quit Diet Coke too many times to count. My friends and family no longer believe me when I say it. It is just a simple pleasure!

Lauren Kelly said...

Ah, the questions of life. Hope you find all the answers girl! Ha!

And seriously, bring Reba BACK!!!!!!!

Piper Jacquelyn said...

Wow, I question many of the things you do as well. Bella's a fool, my skin is annoying, it's obvious Diet Coke needs to be in your life, & my hair is never the right length, ha ha!

Kate said...

While I prefer "those other vampires on HBO," I am SO Team Jacob. It actually really pissed me off when he fell in love (what do they call that in the books?) with Bella & Edward's demon baby. YOU ARE TOO GOOD FOR THEM, JACOB!

R said...

Oh wow half of these could go on my list of things I don't get too. Especially the Bella/Edward thing. And the hair cut stuff. I was talking to my guy about that this week. He told me to put it the way I'll complain about it least.

PinkSass said...

If loving the show Reba is wrong, I don't want to be right. One of my favorite shows ever!

I just ate Nutella because I just finished dinner and duh it's time for something sweet. Preston does not understand this. I find it VERY normal.

Team Edward all the way. I rolled my eyes big time at Jacob and even laughed at him in Eclipse.

Alex and Jill said...

Oh my goodness...I loved Reba! I still watch the re-runs, even though I've seen every episode 1,000 times.

Rachel Antone said...

WHATEVER I eat one Hershey's Kiss and before I know it I've devoured the entire bowl.

Mrs. Smith said...

I am so glad I'm not alone. I just started having skin issues worse than I've had in my whole life. My skin was always my best feature. Now, awful. I've tried 5 new different cleansers... Burt's Bees, Neutrogena, 2 fancy dead sea mineral somethings, Aveeno. The one that's working: Dove. Like, the bar of soap. Weirdest thing ever.

Ams said...

I LOVE Reba... and anyone that told you that having a Hershey's kiss after eating will curb the sweet cravings is full of poop!!!
Hang in there lovely lady... life figures its way out one way or the other and unfortunately it's completely out of out control. I am terrible at letting things BE too so you're not alone!

I have never heard of this $5 recipe thing you speak of! I'm going to have to google it.

I use a lot of online coupons but they all tend to be the same. We also get the paper which pretty much pays for itself and more once I use the coupons. Then I get one of those mini accordion folders and group them in meats, deli, snacks. Sometimes if i use them with the sales they have going on at the store, I save a good amount of money.

Good luck!

Kelley said...

I have the face of a 13 year old too! I don't understand how my face is so broken out and I DON'T wear any makeup.

And I am seriously contemplating canceling our cable, for the very reason you spoke of! I can't turn it off, and I waste so much time that could be used to read the Word, spend with my husband, and working around the house!

Rebecca Jo said...

I'm with you on the Jacob thing too!

And I'm 38... & my face is worse then the youth I teach... what's up with that? In high school, it was smooth & clear... hormones bite!

I love your world includes wanting a music career for Luke... why not? right!

Ari said...

I love Reba! I feel you on the acne completely! wth? If I didn't go out to eat I'd be a millionaire and it I could avoid dessert I'd be a model
But mostly the finding time to be with God and finding the change I want is so hard.

Tales from the Fairy Dust said...

Seriously...who would choose Edward over Jacob. Duh!

Ugh...Acne is the bane of my existence. I've been trying the "Clear Skin Diet" now.

And go you and hubby! Do what you love and love what you do and nevermind the naysayers.

Becca said...

For real, I could have written this . . . And Jacob is so hot, it sort of gives me butterflies in my stomach. Let's just pretend that's not creepy since he's underage :-) haha

and you quit diet coke? good for you! :-) I think I would gain weight too because I always drink one when I'm craving a snack . . .

Number 1. Roots. I colored my hair on Valentine's Day. And haven't done a THING since. The ends are so ragged I wear it in a bun most days to hide the ends. Gross!

Number 2. Um, I know why Bella chose Edward. But in a perfect world she'd choose both. Team Switzerland!

Number 3. I ate so much sugar these past two weeks (stress!) that my mouth is literally raw from sugar. And yet I can't stop eating it.

Number 4. Grocery coupons are stressing me these days. My new rule is to only clip coupons for stuff we have in the house right now and use regularly. All the others go in the trash cause I just can't handle it anymore.

Number 5. Reba is an excellent way to spend a rainy afternoon. That is, if I ever had a free afternoon. Which I don't.

Number 6. I need to go buy a bag of Hershey Kisses asap. It's essential.

a) I love your blog, but have never commented before.

b) I wonder about a lot of the same things. I love Reba -- it is such a great show. I would have a hard time deciding between Edward and Jacob -- in fact, I might just have to string them both along for a while so that I could decide!!! :)

Lauren said...

I'm with you on so many of these...seriously, why can't we have a button on the side of our head to make our hair short/long at the push of a button!

Kassie said...

The Hersey Kiss thing is ridiculous. It doesn't work AT ALL--I don't know who they think they are kidding! I wish I didn't need something sweet after each meal, but I do! And Reba is the best!

Rebecca (Craving Simplicity) said...

Um, Reba is one of my faves!! And I totally feel you on the hair thing. I'm never satisfied. :) (Used-to-be-Mrs-Cup)

Samantha said...

Amen to...

Reba, sweets, money on food,finding time to be in the Word, acne AND rosacea at 25 (in my case), and the long want short and short want long hair issue.

I totally get all of those.

Why can't people be supportive of dreams that you have? I struggle with this daily.

Hope you're doing well.

Is it even a choice between Edward and Jacob?! I mean seriously. Does the girl have eyes?! And yes, I realize I sound like a cougar.

Agreed on Reba. I swear Van is the funniest character on TV.

And I also can't seem to find the time to read the Bible, but can manage to sneak in blog reading time and tv watching time. My priorities need to be reworked.

Rebekah said...

I love this post. I can relate to too many of these questions.. Like the "adult on-set acne", and a good coupon system and lack of weight loss when I give up something I love...sweet tea! I could count on one hand how many blemishes I had until I was in my mid twenties and married. What in the world?!?! And how do people get groceries for the week for like 10 dollars?!?! I can't figure it out!!
