not me monday

a few things that me and the fam DID NOT do this week...

we DID NOT have a long, long drive to florida and get stuck in traffic a ton.we DID NOT drop $350 on two new tires somewhere in alabama...when my dad called on the cell and said there was NOT a big, fat bulge in our rear tire that was about ready to blow. we DID NOT drive into a tire place direct off the exit...they DID NOT change 2 tires, rotate and balance the tires and get it all done in less than an hour...with the exact same tires. {god soooo provided}

brooke DID NOT ask "papa, what is that?"
papa: "it's my heating pad for my back because i am old and my back hurts sometimes."
brooke DID NOT tell papa: "you are not old, you are just fat."
sofie DID NOT have a sweet lady in alabama just give her $1 because she thought she was cute.
{what do you do say, other than 'thanks'}
brooke DID NOT ask me to come and sit out on the screened porch at the beach house and said, "momma, let's sit together and watch the sunset"...to which i have to report, it was NOT one of my fav sunsets of all time.

paige and carrie DID NOT walk in circles and up and down the beach looking for cell service...poor kids, what will they do??

we DID NOT find the best roadside bbq in florida bc we DID NOT see the smoke and smell the ribs...we DID NOT have the most uber fab lunch ever!!!

i DID NOT jump for joy when i read on twitter that stellan was out of SVT...i DID NOT pray endlessly for the mck family...and rejoice when i saw mck mama's story reaching to many on the news.
please pray for stellan and thanks to mck mama for the not me's...
pray for wisdom and guidance for the mck fam as they make some doctor/medical decisions too.

It is so wonderful to see the entire blogging community supporting MckMama and her family through this trying time. Thank you for your heartfelt note. I too have been sending my thoughts and prayers out for Stellan.

Great pictures! Love the comment from Brooke, about grandpa being fat. My niece told my dad when my dad asked about her wedding (she is 9) say, "gramps you will be dead by then, you are just sooo old!" He will be 55 this year!! LOL!

Sounds like you are having a fabulous time. Do me a favor, bring me back some ribs.

Karen said...

Sounds like you had a little weekend worth of heaven. Minus the tire thing, but that even turned out kinda okay.

I totally looked up red roof bbq and where it was located so I wouldn't feel so bad that you were so close to me. So, I don't feel bad because you were still way up in the panhandle and about 7 hours away. Sounds like a great time.

The pics are great and I think it is HILARIOUS about cell service. LOL

Glad you found good BBQ! YUM!

HeatherY said...

Aside from the tire situation, sounds like you are having a great time! It's so awkward when some random person wants to give your cute baby a gift.

I think THIS was NOT my favorite Not Me Monday ever! (well so far, more Mondays to come, right)

Carrie said...

Oh sweet Brooke! That is TOO funny!

Oh crud. Now I want some. DANGIT!
