"Not Me" Monday

 

On Friday I packed up the car, buckled my boys in, and was all geared up to head out on our journey to my parents. I turned the key - and nothing. So I called two girl friends for support. I figured between the three of us we could figure out how to jump it. It didn't take me 5 minutes to figure out how to pop the hood on my car. Nope, not me.

I don't buckle my boys in the car and not let them out for 6 hours...on our way to Grandmas! Nope, Not Me! That would be mean and cruel. (Actually, they are totally content and I am so blessed to have boys that travel so well.)

When I visit my parents - I don't take advantage of my mom. When the boys wake I don't shoo them out to her and lay in bed longer and sleep or read or putter around on my computer. Nope, not me.

My husband went out and purchased a new washer and dryer for us yesterday. We had shopped around awhile back and were just waiting to take advantage of the state rebate program thingy. While I am at my parents he went and took care of it. So when I return I will have a quiet, beautiful partner in my daily laundry escapades. We are supposed to head home on Tuesday or Wednesday - but I am tempted to head home today, just so I can do the first load....Nope, not me, laundry wouldn't tempt me.

To witness more mom's sharing their "NOT ME" journeys in life...venture over to MckMama's blog.

Your kids rock for traveling like that! My Roo is a good traveler - we've only ever went 3 hours though. I have a friend whose son won't go farther than 1/2 hour without taking a break.

My boys are pretty good travelers when they have their dvd player, nintendo or mp3 players! Ha! Yay for the new washer & dryer! I'm jealous!

I am in love with my washer and dryer. And I am okay with it.

I LOVE staying at my mom's! "Mommy I want this..." "GO TELL YOUR GRANDMA!"

Yea!!! for a new washer & dryer. We got new ones when we moved last year and I heart them. It's sad how much I love my washer and dryer. If only things could come out folded...
