Not Me! Monday

Wow! Last week went by fast! I can't believe I have yet another action filled week of things that I don't do! Make sure you check out MckMama's page for other antics. (Who am I kidding - I know you are only reading mine because you came over from MckMama's page.)

  • We did not purchase such a large baby jail that a friend actually called it our baby habitat. We have not redecorated our house in what I like to call "post-modern baby"


  • I did not sulk while bra shopping. I did not discover that my cup size has gone down while my band size has gone up. The stupid scale has not moved for like a month now.


  • I did not rip open the card from the woman that received my mom's kidneys like it was going to contain some sort of message that would save the world. I do not have mixed emotions about the letters. I do not remind myself on a daily basis how fortunate I am that my mom was able to give this gift to someone else.


  • I am not a little bitter and angry today. My mom's birthday is not next week and I am not dreading it like the plague because I know it it going to be a really hard day for me.


  • I did not make enough Trifle for 30 when there were only 3. We are not going to be eating it until Christmas.


  • I did not watch my husband change his shirt about a bazillion times during the Giant game. He did not kick me out of the room to bring good luck.

  • I was not late to work every single day last week. That would be sooo unprofessional. I did not even have a good reason for being late. (Right because I wasn't late, none of this happened to me, but if I don't stop I will be late again!)

What did you not do this week?

Sorry to hear about your mother but she did give the gift of life. It will 4 years on the 30th that my mom passed. I will be thinking about you next week.

And yes I come over from MckMama's!

I hate it when the band size goes up and the cup goes down and no worries my house has been decorated in baby for years, but unfortunately I do not have a big baby jail =)! Praying that you will have nothing but sweet memories as you come up on your Mom's birthday.

I am not totally admitting to a total stranger that I have not been bra shopping way too long. I also did not find you through MckMama and get excited to visit a new blog because that would totally be juvenal of me!

First, thank you so much for stopping by to say Hello on my SITs day. Second, I would like to tell you what a gift your mother is for the person who received the gift of life from her love. Third, I am sorry to hear of your loss and know nothing in the world will be able to fill this hole where she once gave so much to you and your family. My heart and prayers are with you and your family during this challenging time.

dear Juanita
thank you so much for dropping by my (doggy) blog. It is very nice to meet you.
I am sorry to hear about your mother. But love and time will heal your heart and help you find peace.
I too am a great an of Jane Austen. I've gone skimmed through your reading list below and warmly recommend Donna Tart's The Secret History as well as her oher masterpiece "The Little Friend".
And 100 Years of Solitude changed my life when I was 14.
