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.
Well this week I did NOT spend most of the week preparing for my daughter to come and visit. I have NOT been missing her like crazy, she is so special and I am NOT one of those Moms that just does not want to let go.
I did NOT have said daughter fix me up with ring tones for my new phone so now I can tell who is calling without looking at the phone. Only to have so many of them that I can't remember whose is whose?!!?
I did NOT make my first ever hand-made card this week and it only cost me 22.00 in supplies from Micheal's. Yea, I think that scrap booking would be way to dangerous for us. Not only would we be broke but I would need a room built on to hold all the supplies that I would (not be able to live without) need.
I did NOT once again blow off finishing the taxes, nope not me. I am very good about being organized and timely. I would NEVER let the entire year go by without logging any of our expenses.... not ME! I would have an incredible hard time logging all that in at one time.
I did NOT allow the boys to play the Wii way too much this weekend because Courtney was home and they were having such a good time.
I did NOT make a HUGE pot of Chili so that I wouldn't have to cook for several meals. I will NOT have mutiny on my hands after the first few days of serving it but I have decided mutiny is better than cooking.
I did not spend a lot of the evening in tears because Courtney went back to school. I did NOT spend time feeling like this is close to the end of this snapshot of life. This time when we are a family of 7 and the kids are all just that kids. We are so close to toppling over the edge and as an adult I know that once this frame is over we will all be forever different and not as close.
So I guess I end the Not ME in a funk..............
I love you kids more than anything in this world.......... you are my reason to get up and go everyday. Love you so much Mom
