not me monday

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

i DID NOT turn 4-0, yes 40, this week. if i had turned 40, i would be midlife...and if i were, i would be required to have a crisis...to which i am not having. maybe.i DID NOT get a surprise cake from two of my friends, my hubs and girlies the day BEFORE my bday at a surprise party for p's friend, leslie. it was NOT the most beautiful cake i'd ever laid eyes on...
it was def NOT my all time fav, red velvet on the bottom...lemon and vanilla on the top, and cream cheese icing with fondant. ahhhh.
duff {ace of cakes} would NOT have been flipping out over this beauty! i DID NOT eat a minimum of 2 pieces of my cake for a minimum of 3 days each day...and i def DID NOT share a single piece of the red velvet with the girlies. ryan and i would NEVER keep red velvet cake to ourselves...that would be selfish.

brooke and our neighbor, aiden, DID NOT set up a lemonade stand in the middle of a weekeday afternoon for 3 days...we DO NOT live on a cul de sac where 95% of the peeps work during the day...they DID NOT get 25 cents a piece from our one neighbor, who was NOT a saving grace for me, on his lunch break for one cup of lemonade.

jada DID NOT sit next to me this week, look me in the eyes and say, "mommy, i just really love jesus". i def DID NOT tear up and jump with joy at words that could NOT be sweeter.i was NOT mortified to hear that the city of LA spent $3.1 million on jacko's funeral...i DID NOT get totally angry thinking about how many children could be adopted around the world, and villages could have clean drinking water and kids could quit dying from diarhhea and AIDS...but we should def spend that kind of money on a funeral. i am NOT angry still while i write this.

i am still NOT mortified about every single news channel covering the michael jackson fiasco with court and wahtever knowing there are real stories and real affairs that should be covered. every 14 seconds a child is orphaned around the world due to AIDS...how about that one CNN?
my kids DID NOT have the best time cleaning up toilet paper remains all week from the tp extravaganza early this week.

paige DID NOT go the bathroom after her bf, come back out and say, "go back in there and put down the seat. i am not touching that seat. be respectful. i am a woman."

I must say that I am glad I'm not the only one a little erked about MJ's funeral. And the fact that he Alan Sharpton was praising him for his progress in black America. The man was millions of dollars in debt, and most certainly not because he was funding education for black students or AIDS research. No, no, he was creating a private amusement park and buying crap off e-bay. Lol. As I said. I may be a little erked. =)

The whole MJ thing has just gone too far. Now they are talking murder...oh my! That means even more coverage for him & some of his less popular siblings. ~sigh~

Happy (belated) birthday! That cake is to die for!

Megan said...

What a fantabulous cake and celebration!!!

I agree! I can NOT believe how much was spent on MJ's funeral. Insane!

Jada is too much. How sweet is that!?

Hahaha!! Go Paige! That's awesome!

Jada's comment just touched my heart. How cool.
Happy Birthday to you! Mine is Monday. Your Cake was awesome!

I am so PO'd too!!

But mostly that you didn't share that cake with your friend named Carrie who lives in Michigan.

SERIOUSLY WOMAN!

Carrie said...

I guess I should say Happy Birthday.

But I'm too mad at you.
