NOT ME MONDAY (and yes, on Tuesday again)

Okay, I haven't posted anything lately. It's not like there hasn't been plenty happening in our lives. Though I must admit if I had time to post it would be on NATALIE'S WORLD because she has been such an intricate part of our busy lives and often the reason for it. The last three weeks have been quite a whirlwind: Two weeks of dance camp for Natalie with days that consisted of eating breakfast, dressing for dance, lunch, storytime/resting (aka naptime), swimming, supper and then we did it all over again. The 2nd week I was blessed with Cari's help on several trips because I had sessions [She was able to help because the child she was baby sitting for was on vacation with his family]. And just when I thought I would get back to work to finish some orders, edit those recent sessions, I've come down with one my worst sinus infections that has given me an excruciating headaches...actually they are more like face aches.

Just to vent a bit before I get on with my Tuesday morning, I thought I would play NOT ME MONDAY (and yes, I know it's Tuesday...don't you know me by now?, "A day late and a dollar short" or is "Better Late Than Never".

  • As much as I had to do yesterday, I DID NOT stop everything to do a Walmart shopping trip to purchase bleach (over $100 worth of other needed food and household items) so that I could continue washing clothes. It really would be a waist of time to wash my husband work socks w/o bleach. I also did not have make that dent in washing after I got back home because my headache was worst again (really I didn't).

  • While buying groceries and cleaning goods at Walmart yesterday, I did NOT buy some ice cream cones that I saw as I walked in the door because I have been craving an ice cream cone. And I certainly didn't buy one of my most favorite flavors, Butter Pecan, to put in those cones that I did not buy. We all know that I am very weight conscientious these day and that I would not splurge like that! No, no, certainly NOT ME!

  • I was NOT proudly showing Cari, my daughter, Natalie's birthday invitations that came in yesterday to discover that we omitted the date of the party on the invitation. Yes, that's right. We have these cute Princess Natalie invitations with all the other details except for the date! I won't take all be the blame for that since I had Brittany give me then details while I created the photo side and accents for the reverse side with the details. However, several people contributed to proof reading it and no one noticed. Now I admit it seemed something was missing, but yet it wasn't like I could identy that it was something missing, but something just a little off or strange, but I couldn't put my finger on it or even realize that was what I was feeling. NOW THAT DIDN'T MAKE SENCE AT ALL OR DID IT?

  • While trying to think of something different to do with Natalie, I DID NOT decide at the last minute to take Natalie to visit my mom (Friday night) Randy had golf the next day and I had Natalie while her parents moved into a new apartment. After talking to my mom who seemed a little down, I knew she needed a visit from our little loving sweetheat, princess child, Natalie. So I made a 24-hour visit! It was nice.

  • I DID NOT GET THE NICEST FREE BEACH INVITATION YESTERDAY. NO, NO, NOT ME! Those things don't happen to me. Okay, maybe they do, when I have my calendar extremely booked (which is really sort of strange for July). And I am NOT trying to see if I can figure out a way to rearrange my schedule for the end of the week so that I can at least go for a few days. I REALLY DO NOT THINK I CAN (really I don't) as bad as I would love a get-away...as much as I want to go to the beach.

  • And I am NOT FEELING HEADACHE FREE today...truthfully, it is pretty mild right now, but if start thinking about all that I need to do vesus what I want to do (beach trip) and then if I start do some serious comptemplating and re-arranging my schedule, I will probably have a really bad one again! UGH!
  • AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST, I DID NOT DO THIS NOT ME MONDAY and just now realize that I did link to Mckmamma's blog. Oh well...I have now!

Okay, with all that venting out of the way, I am off to try to create a productive day. And no matter what, I think I will have a blessed day! I do believe it is the state of our own mind that creates blessings more than what actually happens to us. [Disclaimer: I believe it. I just don't always follow it!]
