Not Me Monday!


Wow! this week has gone by fast. We had a great Thanksgiving break full of food family and football! So here is my week in a nutshell, while being brutally honest and living to tell about it!

I did not, feel the slightest bit like a loser after realizing that I haven't posted since the last "Not Me Monday!"....and I certainly did not receive 2 e-mails and a phone call wondering if I was OK..☺

I did not make my husband put up any Christmas lights outside of our house this weekend because he has surgery tomorrow and I knew he couldn't do it after the surgery...☺why would I do that---the health of my husband is much more important than silly Christmas lights!

I did not frantically help Alex put together his December family project of an "evergreen tree" this morning in about 5 minutes.....NOPE because we did not forget to do it over the weekend and because these family projects we do EVERY month should include a lot of forethought and time and they should certainly not be a tree cut out of green construction paper covered with glued on marshmallows and cocoa puffs.

I did not allow my boys to put all of the Christmas ornaments on the bottom two feet of the tree with their handmade ornaments in front for all to see, and then after they went to bed fix the tree the way I like it (hiding a few handmade ornaments around the back)....cause you know Christmas is all about the kids and Christmas trees with all of the ugly adorable ornaments they have made at school and church should be front and center!

After seeing my best friend A's adorable little girl this weekend, I did not want my own daughter even more...nope, cause I am totally happy with all the testosterone in my house!

I did not laugh all weekend at my brother Brian and his beautiful girlfriend Melissa for the suggestion that we should get a dog....some kind of dog with the word "teacup" in it....nope! because boys need a dog and they certainly would not stomp on or crush a dog with with the description of "teacup"...... and I would certainly welcome another thing to take care of esp. since it is getting cold (perfect for potty training) and my husband wouldn't be able to take the dog out with his cast on....

I did not use several baby gates to put Brian in baby jail this week....because he has not been driving me crazy climbing the stairs....pictures will follow!

I did not enjoy watching OU beat OSU this weekend...and then on Sunday I wasn't even happier when OU beat out Texas in the BCS to go to the Big 12 championship game. I love listening to all of the Longhorn whiners and can't wait to turn on ESPN later to hear Mack Brown cry about how we cheated them again! Boomer Sooner!

I am not the least bit nervous about my husband's surgery tomorrow...and I am not hoping all of my bloggy friends will pray for him, his doctor's and his family....

Have a great week!

hey, thanks for the tree, marshmallows, cocoa puffs idea, or maybe trix for color. Something to do when the girls are bored.
I, too, put the "lovely" kids ornaments in the back, or stuff them deep inside the tree.

First of all...I'm keeping your husband in my prayers today!!!! Let us know how he does :)

Baby gates can be a lifesaver...that is until they learn to climb over them! :(

I have to say I had noticed you hadn't posted since last week and you had until tonight before I emailed wondering if you fell off the face of the earth :) Glad you're okay!!!!

We will be praying for you guys! Also, when I worked at an Elementary school after college, there was family of four boys and the mom just had to have a girl so they tried again. She had twin boys! So now she has 6 boys! Well, 7 including her husband! So be careful :)
