Not Me Monday AND a Giveaway!!

What is "Not Me Monday"? Check out MckMama's blog to find out!

This week I did NOT lose my patience so many times with my boys, that Micah's most-often heard phrase was "Mommy, stop being mean at me!" I do declare (said with a Southern accent)! I am so glad that some reality television show is not following ME around.

Last Monday (while M was gone at a retreat for 2 days), I did NOT attempt to take my boys to Disneyland BY MYSELF, and then the next day, decide to take them to Chuck E. Cheese BY MYSELF, and then wonder why I was so impatient all week long. It is now Monday again, and I have still NOT recovered (for real).

This Friday, I took Jaden to his little class-thing (kindof like "Mommy and Me") where I did NOT have a "sweaty feet episode" (read about those here), and leave wet foot prints all over the gym mats, leaving every other mother wondering what in the world was WRONG with me, and them probably wondering WHY I kept standing in the corner (where the mat stopped) during the whole class. Not me!! I don't have any weird, disgusting body "disabilities"!

OH- and I did NOT walk into Kmart, find a Martha Stewart country china cabinet at 90% off (for only $30), bring it home and attempt to put it together BY MYSELF in the garage. I did NOT screw some pieces in backwards, which caused a huge commotion when I needed Martin to unscrew the ENTIRE piece of furniture (about 2000 screws) to fix it. He did NOT unscrew the piece (for real) but left it as it is, and I have to DEAL. (pictures to come later).

That was my week. How 'bout yours?
And NOW (drumroll, please), a GIVEAWAY for my 195th post!! You may or may not know that I am a HUGE fan of Sara Groves. I will be giving away a cute little book and CD of her children's songs that I received as a gift at the MOPS convention. It is called "What Every Mom Needs: Audio Snapshot and Journal" and is a small journal of questions that you can reflect on as you listen to the touching music about moms & babies. I LOVE this CD but already have one of my own, and would LOVE to share it with you. You can listen to some of the songs here.

All you have to do to enter is to leave me a comment!! Just let me know that you stopped by!!
This contest will be open until Wednesday midnight.


  1. Sounds like a wonderful cd! Great deal on the Martha Stewart cabinet - can't wait to see the pictures.

  2. I can't wait to see your cabinet! I put stuff together all the time. If i waited for B to do it, we'd have a garage full of boxes :D
    I have hyperhydrosis. Do you too? I have "sweaty" incidents all the time. Remind me to tell you about the lovely college kid that called me a freak. Ah, good times.

  3. James, You got meinto Sara G! For that I am thankful:)

  4. I remember the Sara Groves concert at Orange County Worship center...she was awesome! I miss you, friend...need to talk on the phone soon.

  5. haha you are one brave woman to take on Disney & Chuck E. Cheese alone!! I have trouble with the grocery store.. you are my hero! :)
    I always look forward to your "not me mondays" so funny! Can't wait to see the pics of the china cabnet too! lol..
