Is this a confession slice?

I really love beds that are made (not that I always make mine)
But finger prints, nose prints, and smudges on the window don’t bother me

I like having the couch pillows and blankets put back in their correct spots before leaving for school in the morning
But shoes can be scattered on the rug and I don’t care

I need bath towels to be folded a certain way and stacked neatly in the bathroom closet
But fitted sheets can be rumpled and shoved into a drawer

I like to fold my t-shirts to the right and put them away in neat stacks in my dresser
But if I’m matching clean socks and I come across a loaner, I shrug, throw it in my drawer, and hope it’s partner turns up. If it doesn’t, I don’t care

Is this a confession slice?

  1. Love these confessions! I’m especially happy to learn about the fitted sheets situation… I’ve given up trying to fold those. We always use to have shoes scattered, I couldn’t stand it… but when Finn was a puppy he loved to chew shoes, so that helped us get out of the habit… Although right now, I do see a bunch of shoes by the door…

    1. Yes! I’ve tried… and I feel fine with shoving them into a drawer! LOL! I neatly fold the top sheet and pillow cases. I’ve made peace with not being able to fold the fitted sheets.


  2. I love the contrasts between what is important to you and what’s not. I’m going to save this as a mentor slice to try. The juxtapositions are really a delight to read.
