not me monday

a few things me and the fam DID NOT do the last, well, month or so...

i DID NOT fall off the blogging earth lately for school, softball, travel and, well life.

my doctor DID NOT report to me this week that i had lost 17 pounds since march...and i DID NOT say "take that boot camp...i'm beating you".  i'm not proud of myself for all my hard work.

i DID NOT get to jump a plane and take a vacation with ryan to france while he was on a business trip to paris and rennes, france.
the trip was NOT the best, most relaxing vacation of my flipping life...and there was no beach.  can you believe it?
while walking up the steps at sacre couer (the highest point in paris...and a beautiful church atop), there was NOT a man playing a harp with our wedding march when we walked was NOT one of the most romantic things of my life.
paris was NOT the most beautiful was NOT sincerely the city of love.
even a little city street can NOT be simply gorgeous and romantic...and we DID NOT have a fab time just having our aperitif right here!!! {for real}
i DID NOT realize that i have almost NO pictures of the girls bc i've been actually focusing on me and ryan and france...sad, but for once, it's true.
but the kids are NOT still totally precious...and even more so since we got back and spent time alone. 

paiger DID NOT make team akadema 95...a college showcase fastpitch softball A team.  it was NOT her dream to make this team and she is NOT having a total blast playing on such a great team.  she is NOT playing center field and rocking it out.

brooke DID NOT ride her bike into a mailbox on our cul de sac sunday evening...and she was NOT fairly proud of the battle wound on her rib.  she is NOT a trip. 

jada DID NOT pee on her bedroom floor while we were in paris and totally blame the dog...she was NOT caught in her fib by good old auntie christin and brittany.  she DID NOT have a time out and some major clean up to do.

sofia and i DID NOT have a moon launch this last week from the sandbox in the backyard.  we DID NOT make a birthday cake for santa, who does apparently live on the moon in the off season.
sof DID NOT pray at dinner "dear jesus. thank u. i really love u. thanks family. amen'.  i was NOT overwhelmed with the most sincere love and emotion at that point.  i DID NOT look up to see paige and ryan were feeling the very same thing.

i DID NOT tell sofia i had to go to the doctor...she DID NOT respond with, "why mom, does your butt really hurt?"  i DID NOT think that was worthy of going to the doctor, but did thank her for her thoughts.

i was NOT in total withdrawal in france bc i did not have my laptop or wifi most of the time.  i DID NOT have total twitter loss...apparently, i can survive without wifi...but only with the aid of espresso, croissants, lots of sleep and the eiffel tower.

please do NOT come and see me again...i will NOT be talking about paris forever and posting pics for the next week!!!
