Truth Be Told Tuesday #9 - Unpacking

Welcome to another edition of Truth Be Told Tuesday (TTBT).  If you spend any amount of time reading blogs or catching up with friends on Facebook, it can seem like everyone else has it all together (perfect house, perfect kids, clean kitchen).  But we all know that is not the reality.  Truth Be Told Tuesdays is an opportunity for us to share the reality and support one another in our imperfections.

Truth Be Told, every time I look at my suitcase that I need to unpack…


I am reminded that I still haven’t unpacked my suitcase from my last trip several weeks ago (4 weeks to be exact!).


As my cousin Karen said, I’m suffering from a “vacation hangover” (love that phrase…I am totally stealing it!) and am finding it very difficult to get motivated.

Ok, now it’s your turn.  Tell us your truth!  And if you enjoy reading TTBT, please tell your friends about it, share it on Facebook (and while you’re at it, come by and Like me!), Tweet about it, share it on your blog, etc…  the more people that share, the more fun it is!


  1. Truth be told, my house is a mess because I have been LAZY the last few days. No excuses here (not valid ones at least). Just lazy. I am not proud of this. Also, there is an internet tech guy coming from the cable company tomorrow to hopefully fix my stupid internet, and so the only reason I'm cleaning tonight is so I don't have to be embarrassed tomorrow.

  2. Truth be told, I brought in 6 half full, old, yucky sippy cups from my car today. My car is a mess!!!!

  3. oooh my car is right there with ali's. it's horrible.
    truth be told... i shook off the bathmat, cleaned what i could of dirt and dust, and what i had trouble picking up got swept back under the bathmat. yup.

  4. I am horrible about unpacking too. I love to pack, but when it comes to unpacking, it just doesn't happen!

  5. We just got back from a vacation and had an aha-'mo. Instead of planning and packing and quietly resenting that I have to do it all, I made a deal with husband. All he had to do was unpack, and he actually did it the same evening we came home. Best deal I ever made!
    Now the dirty laundry pile still left from the vacation is another matter....I swear it's breeding. ;)


I LOVE to hear from you guys! You all are the GREATEST! (And I love to reply to comments so make sure you have an email address attached to your Blogger Profile!)
