Our Five Ring Circus: Not Me! Monday

Not Me! Monday

I can't believe that Monday has rolled around again. I'm starting to mark the passage of another week by writing a new Not Me! Monday. If you'd like to experience the fun of reading more confessions, head on over to MckMama's blog.

This week has been a week filled with sickness. There are many things that I've done this week that typically don't happen in my household, but you gotta do what you gotta do!

This week did not start off with Dylan getting his first ever stomach virus, which kept both of us up all night. He did not get puke on my lips. He did not bound out of bed, a few hours later, completely over it.

My little girl did not change into her pajamas in the middle of the day, on Monday. Where would she ever get that idea?

The unseasonably warm weather did not melt the foot of snow in our yard, revealing numerous piles of tiny Chihuahua poop and mountains of Great Dane Poop. No way, because those would have been scooped up immediately, instead of being buried in snow.

I am not in complete disbelief that my poor little girl will have to endure 3 more weeks of diarrhea until she sees the GI doctor. That would mean that she will end up having 11 long weeks of constant diarrhea before we even find out what is wrong with her.

I did not register Dylan for Pre-K on Thursday. If I did, that would mean I'm the mom of a school aged child, and I can't believe that!

Lexie did not get Dylan's virus, also making it her first ever. She did not sleep in her puke all night long, because even though I smelled it, I couldn't see it. Her body was not draped over her pillow, concealing the mess.

Lexie's laundry, that I did on Tuesday, is not still sitting on her dresser, in the basket.

I did not get sick with the stomach virus, shortly after eating a heart-shaped, cornflake/marshmallow wreath. I am not thinking that my illness ruined the deliciousness of those wreaths, and that it will be a long time before I eat one again.

Dylan did NOT end up in the ER again this week, for yet another injury.

I was completely prepared for Valentine's Day. I did not have to go out shopping for my little gifts today.

My husband did not give me a card for Valentine's Day that said I Love You...and then on the inside, said, I love You Naked.

The messiness of my house, while I was sick, did not drive me completely insane. So much that I had to close my eyes to block it out. I did not attack the messiness with a vengeance as soon as I had the energy to do so.

My kids have not watched more DVD's than they ever have, during this week of illness. I am not shocked that my husband has been the only person who has managed to escape getting sick this week.

I do not think it's ironic that I said that I would rather have a cold than a stomach virus...only to wake up a day later with the virus gone, and a cold in it's place. HA!!!

And, finally, my BABY is most definitely NOT turning 2 in a week. If she were turning 2, I am completely prepared for her party, on Saturday. Completely. Tutu is made, favors are bought, food is planned, present is bought...I am not overwhelmed by all this, because it's done!


  1. OOO...I love parties! Can't wait to see little Lexi in her pink tutu surrounded with all of the Birthday decorations that you have clearly already handmade in all your free time this week. ;)

    Hope you feel better soon!


  2. We had that awful stomach flu a few weeks ago. When the kids are sick, I am in survival mode too... plenty of DVDs, house in disarray, etc. You gotta do what you gotta do!

  3. Wow that was one heck of a week. Hope all of you are back to normal soon.

  4. Oh man, it stinks when the virus just keeps jumping from person to person. Hope everyone's back to feeling better now!

    I would rather a cold than the flu too!!! ANY DAY!!

    Enjoyed your Not Me's!

  5. Man, I hope everyone is back to normal by now! I still can't believe Lexie is turning 2...can't wait to see the pics!


I love hearing from you! Let's chat!!!
