saturday confessional | life on the parsons farm

happy weekend. we're back with another fun confessional from with ashley from life on the parsons farm!

but before i hand it completely over to ashley i have my own quick confession.

not but 30 minutes ago my sweet little turtle…my gal…my kaye took advantage of my sweet, loving kisses. okay…so maybe i had her pinned to the ground and i was kissing her face off, but i must have gotten too close because girlfriend took advantage of the situation and practically bit my lower lip off. i immediately burst into tears from pain, and then cried even harder because i felt so stupid. and then i think i cried more because i couldn't believe that my best gal had hurt me so much.

so, we're really off to a great little saturday.

it's going to improve because it's saturday confessional time. and i just love reading other's confessions.

as always, if any of you fine gals have a confessional list or confessional story you want to share here on September FARM just shoot me an e-mail and we'll get you scheduled to take over on a saturday coming up very soon!

now i'm excited to bring to you another round of confessions from another sweet, farm gal, ashley! take it away!

Hey Y'all!  I can't tell you how excited I am to be guest posting on another Farmer's blog! I'm Ashley and I blog over at "Life on the Parsons Farm". Its just a little blog that has really helped me to document happenings around our farm and how our adorable little daughter Ellie is growing!
Life on the Parsons Farm
Today I wanted to share with you some of my pet peeves and embarrassing moments in my life!
  • I don't know about y'all but I cannot stand it when people (usually they are elderly) drive slow in the left lane.  The left lane is meant for passing so if  you are just gonna go slow get over!
  • Or when semi-trucks are driving in the passing lane at 55 mph--argh it makes me so angry!
  • I love connecting with my readers and commenting back to them but it really irritates me when they are a "noreply-comment" blogger.  I have no way of figuring out how to contact them and it makes me so mad that I draft this thoughtful response to them only to realize they aren't ever gonna get it.  To learn how to fix it you can ready my post here.
  • I'm a shorty at 4'12'' (okay that is 5').  I love being short but with it I have some short-comings (pun intended).  I can't reach the top shelves in our kitchen, or get things in and out of the oven if the door is all the way open, nor can I reach the back of the top rack of the dishwasher when the door is all the way down.  Often times my husband gets annoyed when I ask him for his help and then I have to remind him that my arms only about an inch long so my life is difficult!
  • I have anger issues.  I tend to get super angry at situation due to user error (yes my error) and then get unnecessarily angry and frustrated - its embarrassing. Like that one time I was running down the stairs after the Indiana Jones ride at Disneyland and fell down the stairs and sprained my ankle - oh those stairs didn't know what wrath they were going to entail for that one.  Or the other time I tried spray painting a frame and had the nozzle facing me - yeah that poor can had no idea what hit him!!
  • I also can get pretty judgmental of how some people choose to parent their children.  I get that we are all in different stages and have our own techniques, belief system, and non-negotiables.  But come on!! Who wants to have someone else's child over at their house (with their parents no less) and have the children jump on their new white couch while the parent just ignores and you the home owner have to reprimand the child?!!?!?!? Lets have some courtesy people!!
  • I tend to be pretty clumsy and throw my projector remote and power point clicker across the classroom on a weekly basis - all because I like to talk with my hands!
  • And I will leave you with one last gem.  Back in the day (in college) I used to ride my bicycle around campus.  I was running late one winter day and decided it would be quicker for me to ride rather than walk in the snow.  As I was coming to an intersection (I was riding on the sidewalk) the path was very narrow and a pedestrian was coming at me.  I tried with all my might to go in as straight of a line as quickly as I could so neither of us had to go off the trail when I over corrected my front wheel just a little too much and tipped over into the snowbank. The walker kept on going and after I pulled myself and the bike out of the snow hill there was the perfect indentation of a person on a bike left in the side of the snow.  Embarrassing and I am sure I could hear him laughing as he walked by.  Needless to say - I never rode a bike in the snow again!
Thanks for reading this far!! Hope you will stop by my blog for some more laughs and a look at another small farmer's life!

    1. Thank you Jenny! Yeah they seem to get a kick out of it, if inly I was doing it on purpose. And then of course when the remote hits the floor it's back cover comes off and the batteries go all over! It's real special.

  2. Yay, I will certainly follow her! I must confess, however, I was a no-reply blogger until was able to figure out how to fix it out. Another blogger tweeted @ me and let me know what was going on, and I immediately set about to fixing it!

  4. I agree with the parenting thing. Like its their responsibility to discipline their kids. Oh people! I'm very clumsy too! I tend to trip over my own feet a lot.

    1. I checked and you are a noreply. It will be crazy how much more communication you will have with other bloggers once you change your settings!!
