Not Me Monday - 9th Edition

Seeing this is the 9th week I think I can skip the intro. You know the drill by now right?
Click here to visit MckMama's blog and read hundreds of other Not Me posts.

I am not typing some of my Not Me Monday's on Sunday.
I am not avoiding my work by doing so.
My work isn't doing itself. Oh how I wish it would!
I have not gotten myself in over my head this week with two book deadlines, an Usborne book party to close, and my boss's family photo shoot to proof...all before Tuesday.
Tuesday is not PapaBear's birthday.
I did not completely redo my entire blog identity and layout in one day.
I did not drag my kids outside at naptime to take pictures of them wearing the bear costumes for my new look.
I didn't shoot 70 pictures in 10 minutes so they could get to bed.

I did not take my kids outside to play Pooh Sticks even though I knew the pond would be frozen and the sticks wouldn't float.













My kids aren't sick.
My husband isn't sick.
I do not wish I'd just get sick and get it over with.
I did not take SisterBear to the ER at 4:30 Sunday morning when she woke up with croup.
I didn't take the camera with so I could document our 2 hour adventure.

I did not receive 4 different people's mail in one day. I didn't do those strangers a favor and throw their junk mail away.

I did not walk around being poked in the foot for two days before I realized I had a tack in my slipper.

We did not have to deal with furnace issues for eight days before things were resolved. (Read about the overheating days here and the beginning of the no heat stretch here. The house spent twenty-four hours at 63 degrees and then another twenty-four hours at 52 degrees.


This is not apple cider.














At least not any more!

  11. Okay - it's (OBVIOUSLY) been way too long since I've visited you! I hope the croup has gotten better...you know...a week later! Sorry. Geesh.

    And I love that you dressed your kids in bear costumes to get pics and then drag them in freezing weather - only moms!

My favorite campstove

Car campers and backpackers typically have a completely different set of camping gear, but when you travel with three kids, a husband, a dog...
