Not Me Monday

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

Ok, I'm for sure NOT just now writing my Not Me Monday. I did not contemplate not writing one at all because I am SO tired. I did not stay in my PJ's all day.....again. And I did not think to myself that maybe I shouldn't include that in my post, because, well because you guys are all going to think that I never (because I didn't) sit around in my PJ's.

After my kids going back to school for a day and a half I was not overjoyed that school was cancelled due to the weather this past Friday. All because it meant that I didn't have to make their lunches or get up so early. I then, by Sunday, was not AT ALL grateful that they would go to school today. Who would be grateful for their kids going to school?! Ummm, not me. I always love my children to be at home. ;)

I did not skip going to the store as long as I could so that I could avoid all the horrid Wal-Mart lines. I do not secretly wish that I could have my groceries delivered to me so that I would never have to go shopping for groceries again.

I am not at all wanting to have another baby. I have had 4 and 4 is plenty. I have not been going back and forth with that ALL day. I would be absolutely out of my mind to even entertain the idea. I also have not been considering adopting a baby ALL day as well. Ahem. ;)

So, what did you not do this past week, or not do today, or whenever?

Not Me Monday

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

This past week I did not get sick and basically do nothing. I was sick BEFORE Christmas, there is no way that I got sick AGAIN. This did not result in my hubby and I doing nothing on New Years, not even in me NOT cooking anything. We did not lay around for days and watch movies with our children, only getting up to shower.

I have not been at all sad about Christmas being over. I'm a grown up and I should be content with Christmas coming and going. I did not get sad when we took our tree down. Who would be sad at the thought of getting a dead tree out of their home? Certainly not me. I am also not sad about my kids Christmas break being almost over. I have not tried to hold on with all my might to this Christmas vacation only to have it be over by 5:30am Wed. morning. I am not dragging my feet in preparation for my kids to go back to school. I never live in denial. ;)

I did not just "wipe down" my 2 year old for 2 days instead of giving him a bath because I was sick. I certainly always have enough energy to give my kids a bath and I did not only have energy to lay on my couch. This did not result in my 2 yr. old NOT wanting to take a bath again at all.

My husband does not hate the cold so much that when it was down to a whopping 16 degrees here, he did not say that God never intended for man to live in these kinds of temperatures. He did not proceed to tell me that this kind of weather must be a result of the fall. That only sin could bring this kind of weather. (He's totally kidding).

I am not sitting here at 10am still in my PJ's. Even though my kids are still on break, I always get up and get dressed first thing. This would also mean that I have not remained in my PJ's as much as I possibly could over the past 3 weeks. So, what have you not done this past week? Do share it with me here!

Blogher and Best Buy Rock

Ok, so recently I entered a contest through Blogher for a $200 Best Buy gift card.....and I WON! I still can't believe it. I went to check my email and there it was, an email from the assistant manager at Blogher telling me that I had won! Can you believe it?!?! I am SO excited! I am going to put it towards a new digital camera for our family. As many of you already know, we need one bad. Ours "died" over a year ago and we have been taking pictures with our video camera. It is a WONDERFUL video camera, but it is not intended for still shots. So, you can guess how excited I am that I am that much closer to a new camera! Yay!! I want to say a BIG thank you to Blogher and Best Buy for this wonderful gift! I am so very grateful. If you are not familiar with Blogher, you should definitely go to their site and check them out. It's a great community for all of us women bloggers! (Not to exclude men, but it IS BlogHER!) And I'm sure that you are all familiar with Best Buy, but if not, I will put their link on here too so you can visit them as well. Thank you again!!!

Not Me Monday

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

This past week I did not keep my oldest home on the last day of school before Christmas break because he would have gone to school and sat there to do nothing for only 3 hours because it was a half day. This had nothing to do with the fact that I have to get up at 5:30am with him so that he can get on his bus that stops in front of our house at 6:30am. Nope, not me. ;)

This past weekend was certainly not when I STARTED my Christmas shopping. I always have everything taken care well before Christmas and just sit back and relax the week of Christmas. I mean, don't you?!?! I also did not leave on Sat. to go Christmas shopping with my mom and sister telling my husband that I shouldn't be gone too long, only to not get home until 9pm. Nope, I did not leave my husband at home with the kids all day on Sat. Nope, I would never do that.

I did not take some milk out of my youngest son's bowl of cereal to put in my coffee because I had just given the last of the milk to him. I do not have to have milk in my coffee and would never be so silly as to spoon milk out of my son's cereal bowl just so I could drink a cup of coffee. I mean, who would do that?!

I am not now trying to figure out how I am going to finish Christmas shopping now that my hubby is out of town. I am not contemplating taking my children shopping with me and telling them to walk around in the store while I shop. That would be silly and I'm certainly never silly. ;)

I am not at all worried that everything won't get done in time for Christmas. I am not the worrying type and am not wondering at all how I'm going to finish Christmas shopping, (including stocking stuffers) pick up all the groceries for Christmas dinner, cook all day on Thursday, and be prepared for my in-laws who will be here Christmas morning. I mean, who would worry about all of that?! Certainly not me.

My 2 yr. old did not just walk into the room with toothpaste on his face. Now, what did NOT happen in your house this past week? Since we are all perfect and all, do share what didn't happen. ;)

Not Me Monday

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

This past week I did not procrastinate on taking our family Christmas picture for our Christmas cards. I never send out cards a week before Christmas not giving plenty of time to get to all of our friends and family. And I for sure have still not taken the photo and have NOT decided to snap a photo of my children in their PJ's tonight in front of our Christmas tree last minute.....nope, not me.

This past week I was not super cranky and difficult to deal with. I did not want to just go somewhere by myself and not come home for a few days. Nope, not me. I'm always chipper, easy going, and full to the brim with giving for all! I am always wonderful to be around and everyone wonders how I can manage to just be so pleasant. Ahem.

This past week I did not tell one of my children that they could just wear the pants that they wore from the day before because they didn't have anything clean to wear. I'm always on top of all of the laundry and it's always nicely put away. This has nothing to do with the fact that he has grown out of all of his pants except for 2 pairs. We always make sure that the kids have plenty of options with their clothing.

I did not go to the Dr. and have to have pellets injected into me because I have hormone levels equivalent to your great-grandmother. I am only 32 and there would be no reason for such madness. I was then not so sore that I could not lay on my left side when I slept nor sit without cringing. And I am not at all frustrated that I feel no different even thought it's only been 3 days. Nope, I'm always patient and know that this will take time and I'm just so thrilled that I will feel better. Some day.

And what have you not been doing this past week? What thing happened that you promised would never be revealed? Come on, reveal it here!!

What Women Want

Today I posted on my business blog about, as a woman, taking time for yourself. I encourage all of my female friends and family to go over and read it and take it to heart. We all need time to ourselves in order to keep on being who we are and to become better wives, moms, friends, and co-workers. Go check it out and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
