Not Me! Monday, 8-31-09

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.

##If you're new to my blog please notice that "Not Me" Monday is sort of like opposite day##

This week was a really good week, devoid of very many typical emabarassing Not Me's!

Ok so I have one, I did NOT barely make it the boys school in time to get them Friday because I was thinking they got out at 3:20 even though 1- Timmy went to school all year there last year and 2-just the day before Tom and I 'discussed' release time and I had to look it up and then tell him he was RIGHT and they got out at 3:10.

I did NOT spend a great afternoon with my mom. Lunch, girl talk and just sitting and being with each other! Can't ask for more.

I did NOT put off planning anything for Tom's birthday. I am all about birthday's and always have my purchased made ahead of time.

He did NOT end up getting a fire pit and a movie (that I may have wanted).

I did NOT call on my niece at the last minute to see if she'd babysit so we could go out together since his family was all getting together to see the family band play. We did NOT have an amazing time.

We did NOT hear some great music!!!
I did NOT have a single shot!!!
We did NOT see a ton of family!

And we did NOT have some super yummy cake or sing happy birthday in a bar at almost 11pm!

And of course, this is NOT an actual photo of us, out of the house, together, without our children.

Despite NOT having any shots I was NOT a little late to church Sunday. I would NOT have skipped it all together if it wasn't for a committment to work the nursery during service.

I mean, I would NOT volunteer for such a task, thinking it be fine. And despite almost one on one volunteers thanks to some awesome teenagers, it was NOT the longer hour and a half ever, thanks to MY own child. He did NOT follow me around the entire time (if I wasn't carrying him) screaming! No my child is NOT jealous or spoiled or anything. He did NOT care when I held another very unhappy baby, took a little one to the potty, changed a diaper, etc etc.
I will NOT be waiting until my own child is out of the nursery before I ever volunteer again!

And my new amazing charm did NOT arrive just as we were leaving. I did NOT grab the envelope and bring it with me to check out in the car, and put it on.
This is NOT a photo of what is now one of my most prized possessions. A small, beautiful charm made with my mom's fingerprint on each side.
I do NOT think this is the best thing ever!!!!!!

And I'm NOT about to shamelessly plugging a fundraiser for Ezra, an adorable little 2 year old boy who's fighting a brave fight against Leukemia. If you visit Imprecious now you can get a charm just like mine with a special heart charm (also like mine) to show your support for all those who like Ezra have had to fight cancer. And 25% of the purchase will go to Ezra's "Kick Cancer's Ass" fund.

And I did NOT beg my oldest son to do this (a second...and third time) to get it on video

Or try about 15 times to catch Bryan doing even a little of his usually constant dancing on video

And I would NOT love some comments! Nope I'm not that shameless at all.


  1. Great post! You really did NOT have a good time! LOL So glad you did NOT do a shot, too. That would have been too much f-u-n! :)

  2. Those videos are great!! I laughed so hard at both of them. oh, and I was so happy to come across your blog. You have three boys, AND you work. I have two boys right now, but would love a third child, however, I honestly don't know any dual working families with three kids. I'm glad to see/hear it can be done!!
