I found a greatblog with a wonderful carnival that I've decided to play along with...I love it!! Made me laugh--and I like laughing!!
The idea behind it, is that although most people would LOVE to have life go PERFECT at all times...it just doesn't happen. That sucks. And sometimes it's hard to admit--Especially for someone (like me) who likes order, control, organization. We need to take time out to laugh at life, realize that it's not always (nor will it ever be) perfect, and things happen.
But mostly to learn and live knowing that we are NOT in control. There is only ONE in control and if we trust Him with our lives, he will make straight the path.
Hope you enjoy "NOT ME! Mondays "
I did not spend an hour surfing and reading blogs today. I did not find this great carnival, decide to join in, nor spend the REST of my day thinking of things that did not happen this week.
I did not make a separate trip to W.a.l.m.a.r.t. tonight to get di.et co.ke. I do not like di.et co.ke. Nor do I drink it. Drinking it would be very unhealthy, which, ofcourse, I am not.
I did not check my facebook account while at work. Everyone knows that you do not use your employers computer/internet for personal use. I would never do that. That's just wrong.
I did not char to DEATH a WHOLE can of marinara sauce. First off, if I was cooking marinara sauce, it obviously would not be out of a can, and second, if I did burn it that would mean I would have to have been absent from the gas burner, that was on. And I simply would not do that. That would be dangerous. Safety is my first name.
I so did not refrain from showering for two days because I had my hair done. I don't like the way she styles it, so I would never leave it for two days so that it would stay just the way she did it. That's plain dirty. And vain. I'm never dirty nor vain.
I did not let my son wear his sisters pink pajamas to bed because he wanted to be a girl. That's silly. He's a man's man. I did, however, teach him, at 4, how to shave and burp--him being a man and all.
I did not walk my children to school without brushing my teeth, my hair, nor wearing a bra. That's grosse. And I wouldn't do that. Never ever.
I did not let the baby lay in bed 1/2 hour after she woke so I could read a book. Who does that? Not me. That's just lazy. I am never lazy.
I did not work an 11hr shift, then take the kids to 1 1/2 glorious hours of gymnastics, getting home at 8:30pm, putting 4 extremely happy children to bed early by 9:00pm. I did not want to watch my favourite show, that did not start at 9:00, nor did I want to eat supper. I did not want to hang my husband for not leaving piles of dirty clothes on the floor, dishes in the sink, nor mail/school work on the counter. I did not throw those things ALL into a hamper. Nor did I humph and frumph around the house angry. And, when my husband arrived home and slouched in front of the t.v. (which I was obviously watching because I was not picking up from the day!) I absolutely DID NOT throw a chocolate bar at him when he spilled the di.et co.ke that I wasn't drinking and looked at me to clean it up. I would never throw something. Especially at my husband. And if I was to throw something, it wouldn't be a chocolate bar. Because I don't eat chocolate and I would never eat it for super at 10:oo at night! As for the drinking of di.et cok.e? Come on! Never.
