Not Me Monday



It's that time again! Time to be brutally honest about my life....and live to tell about it!


So here are the things I haven't done this week....


I did not miss last week's Not Me Monday because I have not lost all track of time...Since my husband had his surgery and has been home most of the time I have not completely lost the inability to know what day it is....because they days are not running together....

I did not tell my husband that since he can not help with much else around the house with his cast on, that it is now his job to fold the laundry---tee hee!
*I KNEW if I worked hard enough I would eventually find myself a laundry lady!

I did not knock my butt onto the ground after hitting my head with the back gate of our SUV while closing it in the parking lot at Wal Mart....not a single person saw me do it, and certainly none of them snickered as they walked by while I sat on the ground wondering if I needed stitches or hospitalization for a concussion....and if I did do that it was certainly the first time I had done it.....because to do that more than once would just be ridiculous! Seriously who closes a door on their own head????

I did not just paint my oldest son's room yellow and purple because those are girls colors.

I did not make my husband crutch himself all over the mall to do some Christmas shopping because that would be too exhausting for him.....and if by some chance we did actually go to the mall, he certainly did not carry a single bag.

I did not let my boys watch the movie "The Sand Lot" and they are not now calling their friends L 7 Weenie's.......and they are not telling everyone they know that they "play ball like a girl".....because that would be totally irresponsible of me to allow my young children to be exposed to a movie that would teach them those things.

I did not ask my mom to watch the boys while we went Christmas shopping and then upon returning to my parents house decide that we had better leave all of the gifts at their house so the boys wouldn't see them......I also didn't leave all of the wrapping paper that we bought at her house along with the gifts in hopes that she would wrap all the gifts....This morning she didn't tell me that she had wrapped up their gifts...and I certainly wasn't happy because I LOVE wrapping gifts.....☺ thanks Mom!

I am not at all happy that I don't have one single poop story to share with you all this week....yippee!

I am not going to miss the annual "see how many times you can throw the ball back and forth without it hitting the ground" game with my baby brother (he's 23) this Christmas because he won't be home for Christmas this year......nope I'm not gonna miss anything about him being gone at all!

I am not at all excited to be spending the first Christmas at our own home in Oklahoma in 4 years! yippppeeeeee!

What did ya'll not do this week?????

God Bless You!

Ahahahaha, you closed the door so hard on your head you FELL TO THE GROUND?! OMG - now that's just sad that someone would laugh as they walked by. I would have at least went over to help you up while I was laughin' (with you, not at you, that is!! LOL)

Have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year if I don't talk to you again before then.

PS I know I have said this already, but I just LOVE the picture of your boys in your header - what an awesome shot!!!! =)
