Not Me Monday

It's Monday! A day to air out our dirty laundry. A day to confess. It's refreshing and therapeutic!
Head on over to MckMama's blog to read more posts just like this one!

It is not me who has been staying up entirely too late, and not getting enough sleep. I do not need to change that.

I did speed down the road, parallel to a train last week, just so we could make it to the crossing in time to watch it go by.

I did not leave the house early to get Dylan from school, because he complained to his teacher that he's never first to go home. I did not get there 15 minutes early and was not horribly disappointed to be second in line after all that work. I do not blame the dad who didn't know what time pickup was, and showed up too early!

Dylan was not a beast in Target on Friday. I was not shocked that he fell asleep on the way home. That most definitely would explain his behavior...you know, if it really happened.

The blizzard did not hit earlier than expected on Friday evening. I did not almost wreck my car several times on my way home from the grocery store, thanks to the slippery, snow covered roads. I was not shaky, tense, and nauseous by the time I pulled into my driveway. Nor did I let out the biggest sigh of relief ever!

We did not get 25 inches of snow! It was not a foot and a half more than the highest amount they predicted. This was not the most snow our area has seen since 1993. I am not absolutely loving it!

I did not snag my sleeping babies from their beds, and take them to bed with me on Saturday night. It was not the best night's sleep I've had in ages. It was not completely wonderful to have a warm, snuggly kid on each side of me!

I did not already buy Christmas presents for 3 people!

My living room and bedroom are not cluttered with random crap because my hubby is turning our big coat closet into a mini-office. I am not wondering where on Earth I'm going to put the stuff that was in the closet. Need. Bigger. House. STAT.


  1. Your kiddos are super cute! I am with you on the snow..i think we got about 25 inches too...i despise driving in at as well!

    thanks for letting us visit!

  2. CHRISTMAS PRESENTS?! gasp!!! really?!

  3. Wow, you certainly are ahead of the game with the Christmas presents, eh? LOL

  4. the snow is nice that it hasn't been too cold so far and so the kids have been able to play in it. Now if it was freezing AND cold...I would be really mad right now.

  5. I am impressed you've already started Christmas shopping-- and so successfully! That's what I did in years past, but once I had my daughter, I completely lost the ability to shop that far in advance. How do you DO it?
