Not Me Monday..again!

Little Ms. MckMama has turned the tables on us this week and has asked all of her faithful followers and prayer warriors for our prayer requests...what an amazing lady...and what an incredible gift she is giving us...First she lets us witness and pray and be involved in her life and the birth of her miracle, and then she asks to pray for us and to allow others to see our prayer requests so that God can receive these prayers, as if she has NOTHING else to do than pray for all **1,751 of us when she has a new baby in the house! Thanks MckMama!

**(1751 is how many of us entered her Tiny Tuesday contest! All I can say is WOW MckMama's girls like us some free stuff!)...

OK, Now on to Not Me Monday...Being Brutally Honest and Living to Tell About It!

1. I did not utter one expletive at my husband when he called me on his way to the hospital after partially tearing his achilles tendon while playing basketball at church last night...nope not me....I would NEVER think about the fact that I already have 4 kids to take care of and I don't need a husband on crutches or undergoing surgery.....BECAUSE I am always supportive, especially in light of the fact he has taken care of me during my multiple injuries! :)

2. I did not laugh hysterically at my mom when she thought THIS PICTURE:


was an ACTUAL old picture of my husband and not one that I had "made" on YEARBOOK YOURSELF........ NOPE! I would never laugh at my mom...... silly lady!


My mom was not very relieved to know that prince charming never actually had hair like that and that he was never quite that big of a dork!....

My mom does not continually keep me laughing! Love ya mom!

3. I was not in a bad mood one day this week, and upon further evaluation of myself realize it was because I was mad at/thinking about a character from a movie I had watched the night before who had cheated on his wife....because that would just be sick and wrong...

4. I did not send my child to school to accept an award in front of the whole school with bedhead......oh oops I already admitted to that one!

5. I did not bribe my kids to help me with my 65 loads of laundry this week...because I soooo enjoy doing laundry, and upon learning how well these boys can fold laundry, I did not make it another one of their "jobs" to promote responsibility....cause folding laundry is my job...and what else would I have to do???

6. And since we are talking about laundry, I did not threaten a never ending timeout to my 3 year old if he changed his clothes ONE MORE TIME on Friday...yep cause he does not change his clothes at least 5 times a day...

7. I did not giggle with excitment when I FINALLY figured out how to link pictures and words to a website...because I have a doctorate and I was smart enough to figure that out weeks ago!

SO......What did you not do this week?? To join in on the fun, click on the "Not Me Monday" picture at the top (tee hee...I did it) and go over to MckMama's blog and see ALL the Not Me's!

I love those pictures from Yearbook. I did that a while back and about wet myself laughing so hard. Love the bedhead too. My son runs when I take out the gel.

Laundry...ugh!!! I have have tons to do...too bad my kids can't fold. Wait a sec..my husband can't either :(

Hope he's feeling okay!

CallansMama said...

LOL, this post made me smile. Thanks!

Mel said...

So sorry to hear about the achilles tendon. Email me if you need to! I love the old yearbook photos too.

I thought only my daughter changed her clothes several times a day. I think, if I don't see it on her for more than 1 hour, then it goes back in the dresser drawer. It's clean enough for me.

Jane Anne said...

I love your list! The yearbook photos are SO funny. My hubby laughed at a Yearbook Yourself photo until he realized what it was and that some friends had yearbooked him. We all got a good chuckle out of that.

I think it must be something this week with the laundry.We all are behind on it. Of course I never get behind..just saying.Thanks for the great laughs!

Jessi Dawn said...

OOOHhh!! I can't wait until my kids know how to fold laundry!! That will be such a great accomplishment. Way to go on figuring out the link thing. I got excited about that one, too.
Blessings,
Jess

Praying for the hubby and you- ouch!

Staci said...

I'd like to be able to teach my 5 year old how to scrub toilets and my 3 year old how to scrub floors...that's not too young is it :) Great Not Me's!

Gardner Momma said...

Oh my gosh your Not Me's totally cracked me up. I loved the "picture" of your hubby! I have a 3-year old son, too - and he also changes clothes a zillion times a day, seriously... what is THAT about! It drives me insane! He has clothes everywhere, I've even tried hiding them from him!

Following Him said...

I am totally not laughing at the year book picture or the fact that you admitted that you had already told the bed head story :)

Julie said...

That is TOO funny! I can't wait until my boys are old enough to help with the laundry!

Kimber said...

Funny, my oldest son is really bad about changing clothes all the time too, he's also bad about taking multiple showers during the day too. Alas, the joys of having teenagers.

heidi said...

Bah! Sick/hurt hubby's are the WORST! Hope he's back to 100% soon.

Kingdom Mama said...

Great Not Me's!! And thanks so much for the award!! I'm sorry I'm just now getting around to thanking you. I still need to decide whom to nominate.

Heather said...

haha LOVE that pic of your husband!! I might have to try that! And I love that your Mom actually thought it was real. So funny.

And good job, smartypants, for figuring out the linky thing!

Stacy C. said...

Thanks for the offer! I have no idea what I'm doing. I just tried differant layouts to see if that was the problem. So any help you could give me would be great!

Julie said...

You've won an award! Come by my blog to claim it!

Misty said...

That picture does fit his face good. I have had those questions too!! The last 2 pics of me actually look like my annual photo. What is sad, it was in 1992, to me that was'nt long ago, to my kids it seems a lifetime, ok so maybe their lifetime... =) BTW
I am loving this Trace Akins song I may just stay awhile and listen to all of it!!

angie said...

I'm dying that your mom thought that picture of your husband was real. :)
