not me monday

oh the christmas season...full of joy and peace and a TON of "NOT ME's"

i DID NOT get a real smile and a real pic of paige without her hand in front of her face!!!! and to seal it with a kiss, she's hanging out with ryan...love it!

i DID NOT eat half of a hershey's candy bar (big size to boot) for lunch one day...with a diet coke, of course. i think if i did do that, the diet coke would def cancel out the candy.

i DID NOT get sofie's bday pink roadster ordered after seeing cute finn on his silver one christmas morn!

i DID NOT laugh so hard i almost peed myself when paige screamed her lungs out in the car after a balloon hit her on the shoulder...and she was sure it was a hand. {mom of the year}

i DID NOT fall out of the hoopty when i was in the grocery store parking lot in the ice storm this week. i also DID NOT look around to see who was looking and laughing.
{that's ice..not rain}

i DID NOT laugh at my M/FIL's christmas tree that is totally missing the tree top part. i also DID NOT laugh harder when my MIL said "you can hardly notice."
i DID NOT get all sentimental when i saw that someone gave my MIL an ornament with grandpa o's name on it in his memory this year for christmas. i then DID NOT laugh so hard i almost fell on the floor hearing that grandma o said she hoped that an ornament would be coming in her honor for next christmas.

i DID NOT get a little sad when i realized this is the last christmas with a baby in the bush...i also DID NOT thank god again and again for the wonderful blessing of all 4 of our "roses".

Ok, the tree "Not Me" made me LOL. Poor little Charlie Brown tree - I'm glad it found someone to love it though! And it does look pretty all dressed up, even without the top. :o) Thanks for the laugh this morning. I needed it! :o)
