Anything you’d rather not say out loud, but really want to say?

*I donít believe you. Statistically impossible. Does lying bring you joy?

*I am beyond thrilled to be at goal weight today. Perhaps itís petty, but weight matters to me. I have soooooo much trouble with maintenance, so Iím whispering and hoping the lost pounds donít find me (again!).

I'm saddened and surprised by a parenting decision my daughter has made. Of course I said nothing and will keep my mouth shut.

I'm worried about all the fears my 11 year old nephew is exhibiting.

my DH, but he loves to do nothing every single day in retirement. I'm not wired that way and I'm trying to figure out a reasonable compromise that makes me happy too. I'm tired of putting myself last.

I'm very unsure about starting to do foster care. I'm unsure if I will enjoy taking care of other people's babies. So unsure that I haven't told many people. But I also feel like I'll never know until I try.

Neighbour, I can hear everything you say on the phone when you stand on your balcony facing my house. Everything. It's like you're standing next to me. You might want to sit down on the other part of your balcony that doesn't face the amphitheatre that is our street.

I badly want to say this aloud to someone but it would be foolish so I'll say it here:
Grow up. You hate your job and your living situation. Instead of complaining about it, do something about it. There are jobs aplenty that pay better than the dead end job you're in now. You don't want another dead end job? Do something about it. Grow. Up.

Worried about grandson...his friends will be leaving for college in a few weeks. DGS has always bonded with his football team mates. Many have been friends since 5th grade. So his hiking and skiing buddies will be gone.

Thieves

To the thieves who broke into our house after a small house fire and brazenly took a car and other items we had earned through hard work.
I hope someone breaks into your houses and take things you worked to earn. I hope you will all be caught and sent to jail and seriously impact the rest of your lives!😡

Niece, what are you doing with your life? You are smart but make silly decisions that will cost a lot in the end. We want so much more for you.

Why do I keep self-sabotaging when I get 10-11 pounds below my highest weight? I see that number and pat myself on the back and indulge! Then itís +3 pounds which take weeks to take off!

I am confident that my retiring was the perfect timing for me. Then why do i feel sad seeing pictures of my school buddies and P at the back to school teachers’ breakfast meeting?

I miss the people, not the job. Such a great, fun group. If only I could go hang out with them but not do the work. Yes, it’s good that I retired!

I take on my kids' worries too much. Stressors in their lives (both adults in their 20s) stress me out. I need to step back. DD is buying a house (3 + hours away that she will rent out part time as an Airbnb), and she has a new position in her company, and she is overwhelmed!

whispering this so softly...

I don't want to share my classroom with you. You are a mess and cause me stress. But I will smile and say welcome.

I'm so tired of being the one in charge--it's not the doing that's so overwhelming, it's the thinking and deciding.

I don't do much cooking so I don't feel like I can complain or say anything negative. My husband likes to marinate chicken thighs in Italian salad dressing and either grill them or air fry them. I HATE vinegar so that's ALL I taste.

Please do not send emails about the 22-23 school year until the school year actually begins. I do not need to know on August 10th that my grade level team is meeting with you after school on the last Monday of each month. If you want to check that email off of your to-do list, type it up and schedule it to be sent on the first day of teacher inservice...not today.

Please stop putting me in the middle. It makes me not want to be around either of you.

If you are going to lecture the kids, be sure you practice what you preach. You wonder why they don't listen?!

I have a feeling this school year is going to be a sh!t show. I donít want to get stuck in the middle of anything.

Moving classrooms stinks, especially when no one was told to move their stuff out of the new room and you have to deal with it all!

Just so disheartening listening to all the directives at the staff meeting on Wed. . Totally disagree the direction we are heading. If this continues I foresee public school imploding. I want to scale back my part time hours.
