not me monday

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

i DID NOT get what i've been asking for...i DID NOT have 4 scheduled shoots in 3 days and i am NOT thrilled to see that my work is really getting noticed...finallly.

jada DID NOT say in the car on friday night, "have you noticed that i am the only brown person in this family?"  
hubs DID NOT respond with, "jada, i believe i have the oddest part in this fam bc i am def the only man."
i DID NOT add, "paige is the only one with a different last name, brooke is the only one with a bio baby brother, and sofia is the only one with a bio link to daddy and me.  i guess we're all just different.  and well, different is good.  different is us."

i DID NOT have a total blast with 2 of my most fav high school girlies ever on a duo shoot saturday.  we DID NOT take an air conditioning break in the historical museum and fina all sorts of fun things, like wooden shoes the size of new hampshire!
i also DID NOT stand guard so bekah could straighten her hair in the alcove near the elevator...i mean, a girl has to have good hair in her senior pictures!

hubs DID NOT bring the girlies to the river where i was shooting on saturday to play in the water.  i DID NOT look over at some point during the shoot and see a man with his pant legs rolled up with three little girlies bouncing along int he river like ducks in a row.  i DID NOT think he looked a little feminine...but soon realized that he was the best hubs in the world for just playing.
we DID NOT have a fun family dinner over the camp fire this week in the back yard...we DID NOT make pepperoni pizza pudgy pies and they were NOT awesome!!!  we DID NOT have marshmallows for dessert...yummo!  i DID NOT get more raves from the fam on that meal than the parmesan crusted chicken with brown rice and mixed veggie meal i made this week.  i do NOT wonder why i even try sometimes.

brooke's teacher DID NOT send a note home saying, "is brooke right or left handed because she wrote half of this paper right, switched it up and finished it left.  when i asked her she said, "it's just the way God made me." "  brooke is NOT a true ambidextrous.

paige DID NOT have her very first practice on her new travel softball team this weekend! we are all NOT excited at all for the year for her and all the experience and exposure she will get.

hubs is NOT FINALLY taking me along a paris trip...i will NOT be in paris sometime this week and i will NOT be sipping espresso, eating crepes and taking pictures of things i have long to see since i was a very little girl.  i DO NOT have so many things i want to do...and i am NOT jacked!

while doing some ministry planning only a few minutes ago, sofia DID NOT color her feet blue while i was on a phone call. 

jada DID NOT decide that half way around the cul-de-sac that the "sweat on her face" was too much and lieu in of riding the bike, she would just plain walk it.  i mean, why ride the bike when you can do the same thing walking it and not sweat.

i DID NOT do 3 boot camps this week...and i DID NOT limp all day saturday from the muscle pain.  if i DO NOT look like a flipping super model soon i might hurt someone!!
i DID NOT turn around to find the flipping cutest puppy ever chewing my only pair of glasses!!!  grrrr!
