wife. mom. adjunct professor. we homeschool. i'm a little bit OCD. i love math. bright colors and geometric designs make me drool. we live with a medical rarity, and Jesus saved his life. through that, Jesus is changing us. The american dream and status quo is overrated...and sometimes just plain wrong. our lives, our family, our careers, our faith are all now filtered through a new lens-- thank you Jesus. welcome to our crazy. feel free to take some of it with you, we have plenty to go around.
It's not the load that breaks you down; it's the way you carry it.

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.-- Jesus Christ

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.

I absolutely love this woman's blog. So, if you are hanging out there just needing to kill some time, go read it...but be forewarned, you might become addicted.

This week, I most certainly did not as aforementioned almost sit down in the most assuredly mildew infested hospital shower. It's scariness did not evade me since I have not been in the hospital nearly 3 months. 

I also most certainly did not keep my three year old hostage in the hospital room as to avoid getting sick at school. No way would a teacher allow her child to skip 3 days of school. nope, i didn't do that.

The biggest thing I did NOT do was eat at least 2 doughnuts every day this week. I did not not not do that. That would just be horribly unhealthy and I would never think about eating such garbage, much less on a daily basis.

Other things I most certainly did not do this week- skip brushing my 3 year old's teeth more than once- i would never forget to brush his teeth! I also did not want cereal so badly that I walked on the air mattress to get to the cereal quickly, i did not slip in this process, I did not reach for the nearest thing which was absolutely not a wicker basket. I did not fail miserably at being stabilized by a wicker basket and I did not bite the dust in the hospital room....i also do not have a huge battle wound on my left ring finger from it. and i didn't yell in pain, loudly enough for the adjacent rooms to hear.

That's it. But I know there are a lot more things I did not, and would not ever, do this past week. This wasn't as funny as it could've been, had I been keeping track all week of this stuff. Maybe I will do better next week! This was my first attempt, and I have limited material since I'm living in the hospital!

This is hilarious! Ummm, by the way, I do not do those things on a regular basis at my HOUSE with a child not in the hospital! Glad you are human!
