Not Me Monday!





It's "Not Me Monday" again. Being Brutally honest and living to tell about it..Join in on the fun by visiting MckMama!
Wow what a week...let's see what I didn't do this week......

*I did not pray to God for one good solid poop for our two baby boys instead of the diarrhea they were experiencing, because I am STILL not pooped out from all the poop at our house....Why would I pray for that with all the other things to pray about like newborn baby Harper who is critically ill with an, as of yet, unknown very serious health issue, or baby Brayden who's lungs stopped developing at 36 weeks and is now fighting for his life in the NICU, or Little Abby who has a high risk and aggressive form of Leukemia and who is right now undergoing the therapy that could kill her.... She just had a conversation with her mommy where she asked, "Mommy, am I going to grow up and be big?" Heartbreaking.
....Why the heck would I ask God for such a silly thing as a solid piece of "doo doo" when there are so many more important things to pray for?

***see how I did that...I worked in a couple of prayer requests into my Not Me's. Now go to their sites and read about their families and send up your prayers! :)


*And since I worked in some prayer requests why not work in something else?:
When Elaine over at the Miss-Elaine-ous Life tagged me for a meme, I didn't almost decide to ignore her because of what the meme asked......BUT if I had decided to do it..Here are the Rules:

1) Take a picture of yourself right NOW!
2) DON'T change your clothes; DON'T fix your hair... Just take a picture.
3) Post that picture with NO editing.
4) Post these instructions with your picture.

I mean, seriously, I was SOOO excited to take a picture of myself in my current state of beautifulness. Here is the picture I didn't take...you'll notice that I didn't try to cover up as much of my face as possible.....

*Not sure if you can tell in the picture, but I have a few freckles...and today Nick didn't tell me that I was "Too Old" to have freckles....thanks a lot kid.

*I did not walk through several "Open Houses" in our neighborhood last weekend just "to see"...nope why would I care about stuff like that? I love our house! I was not even a little bit upset that one of the houses had dropped in price by $70,000....Seriously?

*I do not think my neighbor is trying to torture her dogs....she hangs bird feeders right outside the fence line and squirrels hang upside down from said bird feeders....Their two labs just sit there and salivate and stare at the squirrels....Or maybe she is just trying to entertain baby Brian who stands at our back window and laughs hysterically at the dogs.

*I am not dreading the thought that I have to help Nick make a dinosaur from "things around the house" and turn it in this week for "Open House" at his school....He's 5, how the heck is he gonna make a dinosaur from cotton balls, toothpicks, and cheerios....and Plus, I'm still a little peeved at him for the "old" comment, So I'm not sure I want to help him anyway :)

...and Elaine...if you ever have to make a dinosaur from "things around the house"...I'm not helping you either.... :) tee hee....you know I'm joking right? I really do like you!

****I am not TAGGING each and every lucky person that reads my Not Me's today.....Seriously, now go and take a picture of yourself and put it on your blog....remember NO makeup, no primping...Don't forget to post the instructions with your photos .....and tag 10 more people....., Go, go my beautiful blog friends....let's see you in all your bedhead glory!

Have a great Monday y'all....

♥Liz

I love reading your Not Me Monday posts! They always crack me up.

Hey, I know I have a dog and it is nothing like having sick kids, but I couldn't wait til Bo's 5 day stint with diarrhea finally stopped. (I did have to wipe his butt once if it makes you feel any better :-)

You did great this week getting three posts in one. I totally should have done that. I have heard the "old" comment before too. I remember thinking that way about my mom too. Your picture was great.

Stacy said...

Well if that's how you look everyday you're looking pretty good!!! Great Not Me's!

Kimber said...

Okay, I played along. You look great in the mornings. And your skin is beautiful!

Isn't it funny how they think we are ancient?

Mel said...

You look good to me Mom!! Hang in there!

Jane Anne said...

That was a great way to include so many things in one post. I am going to check out the site for those precious little ones. I loved that you reminded me that it is good to pray about the little things, too. It is... even it if it is poop!

Nancy said...

I love the NMM's! Hope your kiddos get better soon. There is nothing worse (except of course, all 4 coming down with it!!). Thanks for stopping by our blog. Visit often! :)

I've been following Harper's blog too... I have to admit it's weird for me to see a big, healthy-looking baby in the NICU. I guess I just expect them all to be preemies. And I checked out the others too. I sure feel guilty for ever complaining about our long journey to pregnancy... I didn't go through anything compared to some women out there!

Anyway, I'm commenting, but I REFUSE to take a picture of myself right now. Yuck. Besides, I, um... can't find the camera. Yeah. It's lost. Sorry... out of luck. : )

Love your posts. Good luck with that dinosaur! I'm NOT ready for helping with school projects. Thank goodness I have awhile.

i know exactly how you feel about praying for poop... but just the opposite. my son has been constipated for a year and i got to the point of thinking that there are so many others that are in such worse health that i shouldn't pray about his pooping problem. but then i realized that God still cares about any trouble or problem not matter how big or how small. he cares about the birds of the air, so how much more he cares about bowel movements!! i will pray for your boys tonight!
oh.. and loved your not me's
