confession booth: SIETE



i realize that many of you have strong opinions about the confession booth--that's what makes it interesting. if you love a little scandal and some not-so-light reading, you will be back again & again. if you frown on it and/or don't condone, please come back this friday. no hard feelings. let's still be friends~

so.....without further ado.........

today i am turning off my statcounter and opening up confession booth SIETE. feel free to air your dirty laundry, the skeletons in yours or your neighbor's closets, your pet peeves, whatever. you can do it as "anonymous", or make up a name, whatever floats your boat.

but here's how it's going down:

1. i'm using comment moderation. try to not get your freak on too much-- if it's too insane for even a jaded chick like me, it won't make the cut. but give it your best shot! I VALIDATE YOU.

2. i would like to stress that i am NOT your bishop/priest/parole officer/last rights, so if you murdered someone and/or hacked them up and stuffed them in the drywall?? go to another blog. please. NOW.

don't make me cry.

3. feel free to confess without me knowing who you are or where you're from--everything will be turned off until the booth is closed.

4. i reserve the right to post or not post your confession. please also try to refrain from standing on soapboxes and criticizing other confessions and/or confessors--let's all just play nice and get along.

and to quote tori, the genius creator of confession booth, "if you are a psycho who wears scary masks, please don't tell me. thanks."


we will be taking confession until midnight, thursday the 13th.



(get the skinny on the first booth. or the second booth. and if that's not enough, you can check out booth number three , booth number four, booth number five, or booth number six.)

For Mothers Day next year, I want to:

Go to a hotel all by myself, sit in the bed all alone and watch what I want to watch while stuffing my face with yummy food, get a massage, a manicure and pedicure and just disappear.

My husband can come and visit for 30 minutes, but then he has to leave so I can have the entire bed to myself.

a 17 year old girl. (someone close to our family)
Her parents found them and called the Police.

No charges will be filed because there was no "sexual" content just inappropriate for a grown man to be having with a teenager.

He is seeing a Psychologist now.
today is his second appointment.

I don't know what to do.

The Psychologist says he is not a pervert or child molester.

My husband is contemplating leaving his job of 16 years to follow his dream. Which I am supporting.

We had a talk a couple of weeks ago about how this would be so much easier for him to do if he were single with no family to support.

Hes told me that he can "endure" living like this. Lovely. It's nice to know that kids and I are something to be "endured".

I think one of the big criteria of being gay is that you are actually attracted to members of your same gender. So just because you can't make things work with a dude doesn't mean you are gay.

I think a better indicator might be whether or not you fantasize about men or women. For example, when you are kissing a man do you think about making out with a chick?

I always thought it was pretty easy for most guys to O, but my husband struggles and it's a lot of work for him. It's pretty easy for me, but we often do the deed without him getting there.

YIPPEE!!!
Here's my confession- my hubs side of the family is having a family reunion in a month. this entails about 80 people of which about 30 are kids- most under the age of 10.
Now, I am a church going girl- but this reunion is full of devotionals, testimonies, family night, church talks and scripture chases.
Can I just say, WHAT THE HELL!!???

I would prefer to re-name the reunion "four days in HELL" as opposed to a "reunion".
It only happens every three years, yet I still can't belive we use vacation time and our own money to go to this event-
I know not going would be worse- can you see it now- she doesn't think this is fun, so she stayed home! I don't think my inlaws would speak to me again if I did that. At this point, that doesn't seem so bad....... =)
WHEW! That did feel good!

This confession is for any GLEE fans out there:

Rachel and Jessie St. James got their big breaks doing a controversial but highly praised musical on Broadway. It was called "Spring Awakening" and depicted teens in Germany discovering and asking questions about their sexuality, only to be kept in the dark by their parents and teachers.

I watched the entire play the other night on YouTube (in 13 nine minute installments) and was so emotionally affected.

The music was haunting and the story was amazing. Not one for little people, though.

Mindi, I think you would be interested in it because they called it a ROCK OPERA. Duncan Sheik wrote all the music.

The official website is:http://www.springawakening.com/


You should check it out the pirated recording I watched: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fgy1qHuvULM&feature=related

It's not a great copy, but it's the whole play. And it was incredible.

I have to confess that I am super jealous of all these women that blog about their girlfriends weekends and trips and outings. I don't have any girlfriends and I don't know why.

I wish I could live vicariously through some of these women though. I want a weekend in Las Vegas!

I like you anon 9:31!
My hubby and I have been married for 18 years this year- we have four kids and we are still in love!
We have a great sex life, he has a great job and I get to stay home with our kiddos. We have a good life and I make no apologies for that. I love him more now than ever.
I DO think it is sexy and cool to have a great marriage! I feel sad for those unhappy too- it makes me all the more grateful! I'm not trying to sound like it's always fun- marriage is a lot of work, but at the end of the day we both still want the same things and that's what has kept us going strong~
horray for lasting love! =)

I can't wait until I get things going and I make more money than my husband. I have waited for 17 years for him to 'provide & preside' for our family and it hasn't happened. Well, guess what buddy, I'm gonna show you how the providing is done, since you have done such a crappy job...I have a few issues don't I??

In 4 months I will be sealing my eternal fate by choosing to be married outside of the temple and I don't care.

I spent my 20s miserable and full of self hatred. I hated the church. I hated that I have a testimony of it's truthfulness. I hated that I was incapable of forcing myself to take temple covenants. To me eternity = broodmare slavery. One of 5,000 wives pumping out eternal increase for some perfected man. (Don't try to convince me it will be otherwise. I won't believe you. Many many many have tried. All have failed.) As my sister says, "you are the only person I have ever met who has a testimony and is miserable about it. The gospel is supposed to bring you comfort not sorrow." But sorrow was all I had.

Late in my 20's I gave up trying to force myself into that Mormon mold. I accepted that I simply do not fit. Then I met an atheist man. We fell in love. We are disgustingly happy.

My testimony has not wavered but my hatred for the church is gone. The church is true. I'll be a servant in heaven. It's fine by me. I couldn't spend one more minute living in the prison that was my 20's.

My only regret is that I will never have children because I believe all children deserve to be born into the covenant.

@ Anon. May 10 4:05 PM - The diabetes is a factor. Your husband should talk to his doctor. There are treatments that will help. :)

@ Anon. May 10 7:57 PM - The temple gives me the heebie jeebies. I have absolutely no desire to go. If anything, dwelling on the temple too much damages my testimony because it's all so creepy. I just can't go there. (No pun intended.) Oddly enough, however, I believe in the ordinances that are conducted there and I hope you will one day overcome your resistance and go. (Yes, I know, I am a hypocritical freak.)

I don't masturbate often, but when I do I have to watch porn to keep my attention. Once "it's" done, I feel guilty for watching it and promptly turn it off. I also get very mad if my husband masturbates more than 3 times a week. If he watches porn, I feel like he's cheating.

When I was dating my husband, I told him not to buy me flowers as an apology...only to tell me he loves me and on special occasions, like the birth of our kids. (I had a roommate whose boyfriend was a jerk and constantly gave her flowers to apologize.) It came up again after I got pregnant and he asked me if I wanted flowers at the hospital or after we came home. The time came and went and he never got me flowers. It hurt my feelings, especially because he asked me where and when I wanted them. I asked him later why he never did and he said he forgot. I thought he would make it up to me on Mothers Day but he didn't. I know it sounds like a dumb reason to feel sad but I can't help feeling neglected.

My friend and I have both had issues with fertility. I started trying to conceive years before she did. After many years of trying we finally got pregnant. When we announced our pregnancy they had only been trying for about 6 months and my friend was mad at me because I got pregnant first. Now I have a baby and she is still trying. I understand her pain and frustration and I know how discouraging it can be TTC but she is so bitter and angry it is hard to even talk to her any more. I don't know if we will be able to stay friends if she doesn't have a baby soon. Not because I don't like her but because her negativity is too much for me to handle some times.

I'm an active LDS mom that is married to a NonMember. I hate the pathetic looks I get from the other women at church and I hate that they feel like I am their charity case because of my part-member family. What they don't know is that I've had their husbands hit on me, I've caught their kids smoking pot outside the church, I've smelled alcohol on the RS counselor's breath. I AM NOT the one that needs help!! I have a husband that loves me unconditionally and 2 wonderful kids. I wouldn't change a thing! Fix your own families and stop feeling sorry for me while trying to convert my husband!

I feel better. thank you.

I have sort of fallen out of love with blogging. I used to love it, my world revolved around it and I wanted to know what everyone else was doing at all times.

And now, I have a few of my faves that I will look at and comment on and I feel obligated to comment on some because I know if I don't, they will beat me up.

I also censor a lot of what I put on my blog. I either piss someone off because I went somewhere without them, or my mother chastises me for having an opinion, or the second counselor in the bishopric comes up to me on Sunday to comment about something I said on my blog.

The information age that I loved and embraced 2 years ago, kind of bugs me now.

I have a really nice life. I have a fiance that I love wholly and beautiful children. I have a really good job and we are about to buy a house. Things are finally going really well. But every morning I struggle to find the energy to get out of bed. I can't find a single thing to justify my life. I'm not sure what the point is or why I'm here.

And these confessions make me very sad, too, but I can't stop reading.

Of course these confessions make you sad. People don't keep happy secrets. And if they do, they don't confess them anonymously online. They whisper them into their friends ears and share a laugh or smile.

I hate that people feel competition with blogging. I blog whatever I feel about whatever I want. I don't care if it doesn't meet another's standard or does not sound narcissistic enough to be part of the "blog groupies." My opinion is a lot of the bloggers feel they have to caress one another egos by stupid "your hawt", "I'd do you" comments. Really? Great entertainment to see how desperate for attention some people are.

I really wish I would've had one more baby, but now I'm too old. It makes me sad. We waited until we could afford to have kids, rather than going on Welfare like so many of my friends, and now I'm second guessing our decision.

Mormon Mommy bloggers annoy the crap out of me. I get that we like to put our best face forward to the world, but it still has to be real, people.

Thank you "Seriously, so blessed" for calling these bloggers out!

And it is spelled D-E-F-I-N-I-T-E-L-Y, blog ladies. Get it right!

Also, I can't stand my sister-in-law and her children. She is coming into town this week and I secretly hope the entire family forgets that she is here and she goes home realizing that our lives are so much more pleasant without her drama and self-centered manipulation of the entire family.

Ah, not an earth-shattering confession but I feel better!

Some people find it easier to rip on others because they are so insecure. Instead of being happy for others, it's easier to bash them.
I hate this mentality!
And I hate that if a person says something sarcastically, they think it softens the blow.
Nope...you still look like a b-otch.

What do you mean "pretend to be one"? I AM one. I am a life long member. I was "born to goodly parents who love the Lord." I attend regularly. I do all the little tasks I'm supposed to do. I pay my tithing. I pray and read my scriptures daily. I even give Fast Offerings every month, whether I'm feeling up to fasting or not (I have a medical condition). Just because I have personal struggles with the doctrine doesn't make me a non-member or anti.

And since when is the temple secret? I thought the mantra has always been "sacred, not secret." As I said before, I was RAISED LDS. I LIVE AN LDS LIFE. Not to mention that I've taken temple prep classes.

Thanks for blasting me for finding a way to stay connected to the church even though it's been a terribly difficult struggle to do so.

It would have been a LOT easier to just leave the church behind and pretend it's not true.

Unlike you, I commend people who have struggles with the church but are resolved to maintain their membership. That's a far harder thing to do than to be hunky dory with everything and slam on people who aren't.

I think all the people who are walking away from their homes because they're just MAD that they're upside down are DISHONEST!!! I'm mad that I had to wait and rent for years because I couldn't afford to buy (at least not honestly) a house. And now that we've done it the right way, we all get to pay for selfish people who didn't read their contracts BEFORE signing!! I have no sympathy for anyone who bought more than they could afford and now are 'stuck' in their houses. When did it become OK to walk away from a financial obligation just because you think it's unfair?

My husband cant keep an erection during sex. He loses it somewhere during the middle.
He tells me it is his high blood pressure medication doing it.
I think is is physiological.
We have been married over 30 years and have had a healthy sexual relationship up till now.
I wonder what is bothering him.
I think he no longer loves me.
I wonder if he is having sex successfully somewhere else..

@ anonymous 11:16am - It really might be his blood pressure medication. I had to take Labetalol (a blood pressure med) and I didn't have any problems but my doctor told be that it can really, really affect men sexually while they take it.

I'm sorry that you are feeling like that. I hope it is just the medicine.

You better be careful speaking about those that don't like to be spoken of. Before you know it you will be accused of leaving comments on a blog that you have never heard of and then you will be blacklisted.

All without even being asked/confronted.

Oh and then they might do some really rude searches that lead to your blog in an attempt to hurt your feelings. Because they makes them feel better.

Trust me. I know.

11:14 - me too!! So unfair that the rest of us have to suffer. And this is not meant to bash on people that have found themselves unemployed and as a result can't afford their house. It's those that knowingly walk, either because they're mad or they've found out they can get something bigger now for a smaller payment.
