Well, folks... No other way but to say it... I have made a major mistake and then compounded it by hiding it. I'm not sure just HOW many of the D's I have broken, but my first thought would be... a bunch!!
I don't do well with guilt. It eats at me. I am my own worst critic. Long and short, I made a financial error, and then compounded it by not dealing with it for 4 months. Yes, you read right. Geez.. :) Anywho.. I got my big girl panties on and dealt with it today. Well most of it. The big part of it.
I thought long and hard about telling The Man. My first thought was to wait till he gets home. I am ashamed and embarrassed to admit that I waited till I fixed it to tell him. Actually, I am just ashamed and embarrassed period. That I did it and then that I hid it from him for months.
I am also embarrassed and shocked at how many women I talked to today that encouraged me to just hide it from him, never tell him. I was so shocked and then shamed to realize, effectively I had done just that. It seemed silly to say to them, that's not how we roll, when that is certainly how I rolled for 4 months.
I sent The Man an email, and simply explained the situation. I fessed up, came clean, whatever you want to call it. He was gracious and kind as always. I am not getting a spanking for making the mistake, but I am getting one for hiding it from him willfully.
So, I have three weeks to hide the paddles are get the heck outta dodge.... :)
