    I'm not sure if many of you have had the wonderful opportunity of following the PostSecret website, but I have for the past couple of years. To sum it up, people send in their secrets on a postcard to the website anonymously for all to see. Every Sunday the website is updated with new secrets and they are both touching and occasionally disturbing at the same time.



    I was thinking we could try, a more appropriate and tame, version of the post secret on A to Z. I guess I'll begin...



    My DH hates that I bite my nails and constantly asks me to stop. I always promise him I'll try,... yet I have no intentions of stopping.

    I am unemployed, on unemployment. I keep telling everyone that I will get a job soon, but I really enjoy not working. I don't know if I want to go back to work.

    My classes are online, so right now I am home until I go to work at night. Whenever my bf calls to say he's on his way home, I pick up real quick and put away the laundry. Then I tell him I've been cleaning all day...when I've actually been surfing the net and catching up on tv. :whistle:

    Post Secret is one of my favorite websites! Have you ever checked out "Not Always Right?"

    My husband thinks I'm sentimental about the bedspread his mother gave us all those years ago, but I'm really just too lazy to wad the hideous thing up and burn it. That's why I seldom make up our bed, though.

    You would think my bf would catch on when it's 10:00 at night and I'm cleaning the bathroom, but he's clueless.

    I keep telling DF everything will be ok once I find a job and he gets back in school. But I secretly wonder if I will find a job, if we'll find the money for him to go to school, and what this year of living apart is going to do to our relationship.

    Psst... I'm a worry-wart and he's banned me from it, so I have to tell you guys :)

    When I was about ten I would spend hours just walking around a tree in my yard. I did this so much that eventually you could see the path where I walked and you could see it for a couple of years after I stopped walking around the tree.

    Oh, these are great!! My Christmas wrapping paper is still in a corner of my bedroom.

    I had 12 months of recurring unauthorized charges on my credit card and when I finally reported them, the lady in the fraud department was amazed that I just noticed them. :blush: I told her I had been busy.

    Several years ago my husband bought me this huge coffee cup planter/saucer with a ROOSTER on it. He was so proud and just knew I would love it. I do NOT. I turned it around backwards so I couldn't see the rooster and he said, "Oh, you have it backward!" To this day it sits on the kitchen counter and I hate it!
    P.S. I don't like roosters and chickens and it goes with absolutely nothing! :lol:

    :cool: Hah! Got one!

    My husband thinks that I like to watch Nip Tuck because I like the plot. I really watch it so I can see Dr. Christian Troy's beautiful, sexy bod over and over again. :eek: :whistle:

    My best friend is mentally unstable and her husband, my husband's best friend, is making things worse with his self absorbed-egocentric attitude.

    I resigned from my job in mid-Feb. Most of the people at my church still think I work there, and I don't want to have to get into the reasons I quit, so I just go along with it.

    I was supposed to finish grad school last summer. I'm still working on my thesis, but I am trying really hard to have it done by this summer. :whistle:

    When I don't have a sub job, I hang out all day in my pajamas until 30 minutes before my family gets home, then I change. ;)

    I finally thought of one.

    I tracked down my ex-husband by using the internet. I know that he's remarried, but I don't know if they have produced any offspring. (My husband knows all this.)

    I'd really like to "stalk" him - just to see what he looks like, what his new wife looks like, and if he ever straightened out his miserable, pathetic life. (I just haven't been to Iowa in a LONG time.)

    ETA: I need to check his house out on Google street view when I get home!!

    TeacherNY - I just checked Facebook. There are 12 pages of people with his name - obviously, a very common name. I doubt that any of them are him. There are guys with his name who are African American, Canadian, English, Australian, all over the US. Oh, one was a Duke Faculty member. I don't think that's him either!!!

    I did check Google street view. He lives in an older neighborhood. Not too bad. (But, mine is nicer!! :) )

    Oh boy :lol: Well, just imagine his house needing a lot of work ;)
    I never thought to look up my ex fiance. I don't really care what he's doing. I do know he was married for a year before he found out his wife was a closet crack user. They're divorced now. If he had the nerve to ever contact me i'd just :toofunny: hahahahha

    I go out to eat breakfast with my husband on Saturday mornings because I know he loves it. But I hate it, and would rather be sleeping in.

    That's awful, isn't it. I feel terrible. He doesn't know how I really feel, though.

    I purposefully set out any piles of laundry when my mother comes over, because I know she will wash them, fold them, and put them away for me!

    (she's coming over in the morning to watch my kids...I stripped our beds :eek:)

    This is WAAAY too much information, but here goes: (look away now or it will be too late!)

    If I hear my husband fart, I won't have sex with him that night. Few things make me actually physically ill faster than hearing someone fart.

    :confused: Why didn't I look away?!?!

    I'm not all that into movies and a lot of the TV I watch is not the "popular" shows However, I see lots of clips/trailers on talk shows. Sometimes I act like I've seen/watched things I wouldn't dream of actually seeing just to make conversation in the lounge.:whistle:
