Not Me Monday

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

Ok, so I follow MckMama and she does this every Monday. Some of the stuff she puts on there is really funny. So here is how you do it. You write about some of the embarrassing stuff that you "did not do" this week. And you can read what everyone else "didnt do" back on MckMama's site. Its just a funny way to start of a monday.

Ok, I'll start my first ever "Not Me" Monday.
So, on Wed. night I was trying to be a really great wife and get all the laundry done. I did NOT forget I had a load of laundry in the wash and get up out of bed at 10pm and go running down the stairs in my socks to move the last load over.. Nope, not me. And when Not running down the stairs, because I have told my kids many many times how dangerous it is to run down the stairs, I did NOT slip and fall and fracture my elbow. NOPE that certainly was NOT me! And I def. dont have to wear a stupid sling for the next 2-3 weeks as a
constant visual that Mommy didnt listen to her own rules.

Every night right before bed Katey and Brandon always "come down with something". So on Thurs. I certainly did NOT yell at Brandon when right before bed he said he needed to throw up. I did NOT get frustrated and tell him that I was sick and tired of them pulling this every night before bed. I did not tell him to get his butt in -- When he started pukeing his head off. I did not stand there feeling like the worlds crappiest mom. Nope not me, Im sure I really just ran to him, rubbed his back and held his hand when he started not feeling well. Im certain I talked to him gently and calmly and asked if he needed a puke bucket. I positively didnt think he was lying and then watched him prove me wrong.. NOPE NOT ME!

See, that was easy.
Hope you enjoy your Monday.

not a great day.

Yesterday I got a call from Brandon's school nurse. He bumped heads with another kid. He was ok but since it was a head injury they had to tell me. Then 10 mins later I get a call from Kathryn's nurse. She said her tummy hurt, she was nautious and wanted to come home. The nurse said she didnt look well at all, but didnt have a fever, but probably should go home. So Chris picked her up.

Fast forward till right before bed. Its now time for bed and as always right before bed the kids get headaches and tummy aches and blah blah. Bran starts saying I think Im gonna puke. I am in the middle of yelling at him saying.. " I am so tired of you guys being fine, then right before bed you dont feel good. You need to get into ---" At this point he starts barfing his head off. Yeah, great mom here. I felt like crap. So we get it all taken care of. Bran's in bed with a puke bucket, Katey's in bed with a puke bucket, and Ash is in bed no puke bucket.

I then go downstairs to move laundry over and FALL DOWN THE STAIRS. I came right down on my elbow and it hurt, BAD. I can move it slowly so its not a terrible break or anything. If I keep it bent and still I feel fine, but if I straighten it, move it, or even the sheet touches it, it hurts. So the nurse at my dr's office said it could be bruised or even a hairline fracture. I go in at 11. I didnt get much sleep last night because anytime I moved it hurt.

So here I sit, sore arm, and 2 sick kids home laying on the couch. Not a great start to my day.

Grr, I hate getting all dressed up, bundled up, and go out to the van and it WONT START.

Ashlyn's all dressed and ready for school, and we go out and it wont start. Now she's crying because she wants to go see her friends, she wants to go play at school, and the van wont start.

So, we are gonna play some of her new games, color, and maybe find some kind of project we can do together. Its so easy to get bummed and then not what to get up and do anything.

Tonight I am making a Salad for dinner, and Chili. I am going to cut up some fresh fruit (apples) as well. I plan on filling up on salad and fruit, and just having a small cup of chili instead of a huge bowl. Im also not making hot dogs to go with the chili.

A good friend of mine, Jeni Tacket is a dietician and she has started a blog about eating right, loosing weight and all that good stuff. Check out her blog... , you may find some interesting stuff there.

Ok, Im off to play with my munchkin,
