Not Me Monday- mini vacay edition

Please continue to pray for baby Stellan and his Mckmama.

Well, Wednesday we left for a long holiday weekend at my grandparents. I consider their house “home”, as in where I grew up. Not only did they raise me for part of my childhood but they have lived in the same house since I was five and it is the most relaxing, welcoming place on earth for me. My kids and hubby love it too. These are the things that did NOT happen while we were there:

~I did NOT bring my new puppy to my Mommom’s house, despite the fact she is allergic to dogs. I am a grown woman and know the puppy would have been fine with my mom while we were gone.

~I did NOT totally have Twitter and blogging withdrawals because I did not bring my laptop and had promised my kiddos I would spend the time with them. I did NOT have moments of “this would make a great post” or “wonder what @soandso is doing today. If I did these things I would need to admit that I am addicted to the internet and find an appropriate treatment program.

~I did NOT forget and leave one of our other dogs outside and have to call my stepdad to come over and let her in the house while we were gone. It did NOT take seven hours for this realization to hit me.

~Since the above did NOT occur, I did NOT blame the above on my multiple sclerosis short term memory issues. I am a good doggy mama.

~I did NOT laugh at my son, who teetered off the sand and into the frigid Chesapeake Bay water while playing at the park. It wasn’t funny to watch his brother give him a piggyback ride back to the house since his shoes were NOT so wet he “could get frostbite”.

What did NOT happen to you this week? Please share and let us all have a laugh. I could use one!

    I loved my grandparent’s house growing up too. I sooooo miss them…and that feeling of love and acceptance at their house.

    I’m glad you guys had a great time. I think I would have laughed about him falling in the water too. Sounds funny to me :o)
