not me monday

a few things me and the fam DID NOT do the last week {or so}...

the fam DID NOT get together with the ungerer's to play games and watch the colts {epic fail}.  this insane game that starts with "qui" or something was NOT almost the death of me.

we DID NOT make up two bday parties for sofia so far this last week so we could enjoy dairy queen ice cream cake...and we DID NOT eat it both times.  we are NOT planning a party on friday this week either...

the fam and 15 other high school students DID NOT go downtown in indy at 7am christmas morning to serve the homeless and make them christmas dinner in a parking lot, sing christmas carols and give out backpacks full of necessities.  it was NOT the best christmas morning we have ever had.

a homeless man on christmas morn DID NOT ask me to give a cookie to my kiddos from him so he could give his one and only christmas present of the day.  i DID NOT cry...and the kiddos DID NOT think that was the coolest gift they had ever gotten.
while drinking my coffee, i DID NOT notice sofia crawling up on the center island...no diaper on.  when i asked why, she DID NOT respond, "i just wanted to put my bare butt on the counter."

sofia DID NOT make it through to midnight on new year's eve whilst dancing the jig, singing and moving constantly to ensure she DID NOT fall asleep.

while playing the infamous "q" game, i DID NOT have to write a 5 line poem about karen then sing it in opera style...nor did i have to dance the ballet in the hallway, in front of everyone.  i DID NOT almost pee myself doing the tutu hops and leaps.

i DID NOT get the awesome honor of attending passion 2011 in atlanta with 19 of my college students and a few other staff.  i was NOT 15 years the elder of the youngest person there...
i DO NOT want to kiss beth moore, francis chan, louie giglio, john piper, andy stanley and so many others for bringing the gospel to us...to make jesus famous and not themselves.  dude, they have it.  they really have it.
i DID NOT find sofia in the buff dancing around {see a pattern?} saying, "i don't have my clothes on!  i don't have my clothes on!"

we DID NOT celebrate new years eve with some awesome folks...and i was NOT dead by almost 9pm for some reason.  we DID NOT have a blast just chilling out and talking all night.
brooke was NOT driving her remote control car around the house while she was on the toilet...she DID NOT think it was uber funny to run the car into people and for them not to see her.

on new years eve, when i told jada she needed to toast with someone, then sip and move on, she DID NOT say, "what's the point in that? i mean, why can't i just drink it all?  it's mine, right?"

i have NOT gotten to totally hang out with so many of my college students while they were home for break...it was NOT awesome!!!  and did i mention that they were almost all serving the homeless along side us on christmas morning??
i DID NOT sleep through my alarm on saturday morning to take a load of my student impact students to the andy project.  i am NOT totally humiliated and angry with myself.  grrrr....

i DID NOT watch one of my fav students ever fall down 3 steps at passion, laugh and walk the other way asking if anyone knew her.  i would NEVER do that...that would be a bad leader.

i DID NOT look at my twitter feed to see that during ryan's bball game she was twittering interesting dog facts on my account.

brooke DID NOT lose her tooth while vomiting with the flu.  when i asked how that happened, she said, "i was just puking and BAM, it flew out. amazing."  ewwwww.

i DID NOT find a pair of boys whitey tighties in my couch while cleaning after christmas...i DID NOT get giggly when i saw the little wall-e's...which i knew belonged to my nephew.

i DID NOT just find sofia eating a bag of white chocolate chips from the pantry...when i walked around the corner, she DID NOT stuff a handful in her mouth!  she is NOT a big old stinker!
