Not me! Monday!

I have never been so excited for mondays!!!!! Here goes another dose of denial of truth thanks to Mckmama!

I did not spend at least 15 minutes complaining and saying "for the love" over and over last night at the grocery store as I stood in horror of the price for fruit in Grand Forks! I can't believe it is that much more expensive than Iowa and I can't believe that I have no control over this.

I did not let laundry sit in my washer and dryer for more than two days and I did not look think about how I should be folding/doing more laundry every time I walked by the laundry room.

I did not keep my husband up late every night this week watching movies, reading books, and just hanging out with him because he does not have to get up at 6am in the morning and go to work monday through friday. Nope.

I did not get to sleep in until 9am this week and then spend another 30 wonderful minutes laying in bed with a kid on either side of me "shooting the monsters" on the ceiling and singing songs just so we could stay in bed a little longer.

I did not neglect a long list of "to do's" this week including organizing, cleaning, and other super fun necessary evils

I did not throw a mini tantrum after my husband hung the mirror inthe living room and decided it was best to wait to hang some other things since it was lunch time, almost nap time for the boys, and we weren't 100% sure of what we wanted where. Nope I did immaturely raise my voice at him because I wanted to hang more things just to have something on the walls.

I did not have an amazing week during my quiet time upon which I have realized many areas in my life that need improvement and I did not hear God speak to me in numerous ways about these different situations.

I did not leave my husband home sunday night with a puking child and go to work and although I did feel truly sorry for him and Elijah because I wanted to be the one to take care of Elijah and feel sorry for him that he has to clean up puke, but also feel slightly relieved that I might miss out on puke patrol.

I did not wish a million times last week that I could spend time searching blogs of friends and strangers instead of doing other things.

I did not also curse our internet for being EXTREMELY slow thus preventing me from checking my email and blogging.

I did not tell myself all week that I need to go buy a pass to the gym and start working out only to put it off again, and again, and again, and again

I did not cry this week on numerous occasions thinking of how old our baby would be we lost last fall.

I did not make my children EXTREMELy late for naps this week because we spent the morning at my cousins house making halloween cookies with her kids and they were all playing so nicely and I LOVED the adult conversation, and company so much that I did not want to bring them home and put them down.

I also was not a control freak about the cookie decorating with my kids.

I did not make my husband and children drive to a pumpkin patch out of town, just an hour before it closes, after making my children have short naps because of cookie baking. Nope, that would not be wise. I also did not make the boys "pose" for a million pictures at the pumpkin patch instead of letting them just enjoy it.

Ahhh! Until next week...

I could not relate to MANY of these...I am not a control freak and I do not hate stopping before a job is completed! Praying for your loss and feeling your pain!Its strange that I feel closer to you now through this than I did when we lived in the same town...

Hi, Becky...

I found your blog through Cindy's. We met at Faith church a few weeks back...and I know that I have seen you at MOPS a few times and have been wanting to say "hi" again! I have enjoyed reading your blog a bit and getting to know your family.

And, MckMama was actually my roommate in, it was fun to read your "Not me! Monday" post as well!

Well...take care...I will be back! :-) Kristi
