RDU Baton and a few confessions!

First of all, if you've wandered over here as a result of the RDU Baton, WELCOME! If you're wondering what that is, let me tell you... On Instagram the @RDUBaton account is held by a different person every day. They show you a glimpse into their lives and some of their favorite spots around tow. I've been on the waiting list for a few months and today is my day! Not on Instagram? no worries, I'll do a blog post about everywhere I went today. It's also a great excuse to get Kev to take me out to dinner tonight. 'Cause I have to take pictures and stuff...

Like this one of my back yard. It's all fall and stuff. :)

It's been a while since I've confessed and I have a few things to get off my chest. Time for Wednesday Confessions!

1. I don't always wear my wedding rings. Now, before you lose your minds and think I'm trolling for a hook-up, no. I love my husband and I love my rings but believe it or not, the majority of wedding sets aren't meant to be worn every minute of the day. Heck, jewelry shouldn't be worn 24/7. Gold wears down. prongs get snagged on things, diamonds get lost. You shouldn't be scrubbing floors or cleaning toilets with your rings, the chemicals in the cleaners can cause them to pit and get nasty.

I sold jewelry for many years and saw all kinds of bad that happened as a result of rings / jewelry being worn 24/7. I put my rings on in the morning before I go to work and take them off when I get home. If I stop home before going to the gym, I take them off then as well so they won't bang on the weight bar.

2. When Kev and I were on our loooong road trip, I started pondering the state of music today and how there are things that people don't sing about anymore, like rebelling against society. Back in the 80s there was a lot of "We're not Gonna Take It" and "Youth Gone Wild" now it's just "Yay, we're going to listen to what we're told' That kinda makes me sad in my heart.

3. I was also pondering how things had different meanings a few years ago. Kiss has a song called "Deuce" and they sing about how "He's worth a Deuce". I only know a deuce to be a #2. Why would someone be worth a poo?

No Way! That's what it means. I had to get to the 12th entry in Urban dictionary to find it though... The first 5 entries are all about poops.

4. Being in Sales, you can get away with a lot of things because you're "in Sales". Like constantly asking for money or resources. It's a great excuse and really, I would expect that if anyone would ask, it should be sales. At my old job, I got a new boss boss and I immediately asked him for $500 for a sales contest. He said yes... and the day the contest was to start I gave my notice. Oops. #sorrynotsorry

5. I'm a bad cat parent. One of the cats, Titus, the fat one, was being a pain in the ass and spraying and peeing on everything in the house. It was ridiculously frustrating and he ruined a multitude of things. We made the decision earlier this year to convert him into an outside cat. We put a cat door to the garage, moved the food and blankets in there and blocked him from coming inside. 

Well, while we were on vacation we received an e-mail from the neighbors that he was terrorizing their cats and they wanted us to keep him out of their yard. Right... the cat is going to stay out of a yard. So we made the decision to convert him completely into an inside cat and never let him out again. We put him in the garage for a week to get him to use the liter box again and slowly started letting him in the house. 

He's had a few slip ups and has been beating on the door to go outside but overall, it's been as smooth transition. Hopefully he'll continue to behave, but probably not because he's a jerk. But he's our jerk.

Do you wear your rings all the time?

Have a cat? Is he/she a jerk?

Linking up!

  1. I hear you! You don't want to get them cut off but you can't get them off. I've had to cut rings off people in the past and it's never fun. :(

  2. i haven't worn my rings in years because when i was pregnant, they didn't fit anymore and i just never bothered to put them on again!

  3. Love that you have the baton! Great job so far!

  4. Kev only wears his when he goes out too. Mine are 18k and therefore softer, and there's tons of prongs. Those 2 things lead to disaster if I were to wear them all the time.
