Not Me Monday

Join in the fun at MckMama’s blog!
On to the things I DID NOT do this week that had I actually done them would never admit them on the world wide web for all to see, nope not me!

~I did not run around like a crazy woman the night before my trip because it had just then hit me that I was leaving my family for 9 nights and I might actually miss them.

~Instead of conveying this to them with hugs, kisses and sweet nothings in their ears, I did not rant and rave like said crazy woman about making sure they brush their teeth, do their homework, change their underwear and not do anything to embarass me while I am gone. I am a rational and nurturing mother, not a nutcase.

~I did not then feel bad for said rant and worry that I would die on the plane (that recent Hudson river thing did not help) and never be able to rant and rave at them (and of course hug, kiss and whisper sweet nothings) again.

~I have not been getting regular text messages from my twelve year old since I’ve been in Florida because I was adamant he wasn’t getting a cell phone and him texting would mean we finally caved to the pressure and I’m not a quitter, right?

~I am not stressing to the point of over perspiring, heart palpitations and eye lid twitching over my first blog giveaway. I don’t care if people actually participate and I certainly don’t care enough to obsess over it- I DON’T (okay maybe I do a little, go enter would ya?)

~I do not miss my chihuahua almost as much as I miss my hubby. That would be wrong.

~I did not take the time to email my hubby a link to a great blog post by Busy Mom about Valentine ideas for hubbies. He is a grown man and I trust him to come up with a wonderfully romantic evening all on his own. *Hmph* Sorry, had to clear my throat after even typing that one.

~I have not shed tears this week over Abby, Tuesday, Cora and all the other babies in the blogosphere who are going through horrific ordeals and I have not prayed for their parents everyday wondering how they make it through such difficult times. Have you?

    What a great list! I love that you included your giveaway. I just went and entered! I would never send my hubby a link of suggestions… now I am going to go check that out and see I should forward it on!

    My latest post: Not Me! Monday

  6. I am so with you on all of the ranting and raving & hugging and loving! It's like the 2 faces of Eve.

    Great one sending hubby the Valentines "clue".

    And I can strongly concur with you on all the sweet, little angels and all of their battles. It just breaks my heart over and over again!

    HAve a great week,

  7. Sometimes the men need a little help, what can I say!?? Oh, and I didn’t even think about actually buying a freakin pen when I was at the store. That would have been a better isea than the shopping list turned confetti that I ended up with!!

  8. Alicia, The Snowflake says:

    Too funny my friend! I would never rant and rave either about all the things that need to be done when I go away. Nope not me! I hope you are enjoying your trip!
