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.

It's back. I haven't done this well since Stellan was lets get back to it.

I did not let Emma run around all day today in either her pj's or just her diaper. I surely would have dressed her!

I did NOT just buy more bows for my daughter from

I do not shamelessly plug in hopes that you'll go buy bows and leave my name in as a referral (email me if you need my last name! LOL)

Emma absolutely does NOT have over 60 bows, I mean come on, that's just shameful and positively ridiculous that a little girl who's only 21 months old would have that many bows!

I did not make Jackson work on school work until almost 6 PM, because he would barely sit still today and still only got ONE subject done. Come on, what kind of homeschooling mom would I be if my child only did 1 subject in 5 hours?

I was NOT up until 5 AM Saturday night/Sunday morning because I just could not sleep.

I am NOT obviously still up at 2:55 AM tonight.

I did not feel I had to end a friendship, that is over 12 years old because I do not have the emotional strength for her. I have not cried a great deal of tears, felt anger, frustration, and just deep sadness.

I am not praying this friend will put GOD first, then her children, and then her fiance. (My heart is not heavy writing that, knowing God is not first in her life).

I am not counting down until my husband comes home (59 days and counting...give or take a few!!). I am NOT excited about Chad coming home. I mean seriously he's only been gone for 11 1/2 months, why would I be excited?

I do not, I repeat do NOT get annoyed by women who actually complain to ME about their husband's being gone for a few days or even a couple weeks. I do not want to tell them to "get a grip and be thankful". I do not think that some women are really, really inconsiderate and thoughtless.

I am not hoping it's sunny tomorrow, because I want to take pictures of my kids outside.

I am not also half hoping it rains so we don't have baseball practice tomorrow evening.

I am NOT ready for my husband to be home. Oh did I already write something similar. Oh well, you try having your husband be gone from you for over a year and finally see the light at the end of the tunnel!

I do NOT think there's going to be more than one type of fireworks exploding here on 4th of July! (hehe!!)

So...tell us what you didn't do!

I'm sorry to hear about your friendship. That sounds like a hard situation.

And I will rejoice with you when your husband is home! I can't imagine!!!

I had a friend in high school that I had to end the friendship after almost 10 years. We went our separate ways and then one day, out of the blue, she calls me and we talked and she had changed her lifestyle. We are best friends again and it was worth letting her go in order to preserve my own path in life and it eventually opened her eyes as well. I hope your friend has a change of heart too.

I know what you mean girl. People who whine about their hubbies being gone for a day or two have no clue. NONE! I actually told one of them to think of me whenever she gets down. It could always be a year vs a week!
