Not Me! Monday

This blog therapy was created by
as a way of shamelessly fessing up to
all the bad normal mommy stuff we did
over the past week!
Read along, join in, and then hop over to
and see what MckMama and the other mommas
are not doing, and certainly not confessing to
this week!

I am seriously not excited by my newfound
ability to mess around till I do something right
use HTML to do cool things like make pictures
bigger in my posts, and fix my spacing problems!
I didn't use my newfound picture sizing skill
to make all the pics in Jacob's birthday post bigger-
and I would never brag about it or link back
to it just cause I thought it was so cool-not me!!

I did not have such a busy weekend that my
head is still spinning. And since I wasn't so busy,
I totally didn't;
*Have to go to the chiropractor in Mobile not once,
but twice Friday because I pulled a rib out. SOO painful!
Thanks, Dr. Rob!
*Go to the open house at Paul's employer-4 hrs outside
at the hottest part of the day! We got to go onboard
the Navy ship LHD 8 that Paul has worked on for the last 5 years
(he works for a shipyard, for those who didn't know)
We only took the oldest 3 cause the little ones
were too little to go on the ship.
*Throw Jacob's party just hours after we got home
from the shipyard! And I made sure everyone
was bathed because I would never host a birthday party
after we were all sweating for 4 hours
in the blazing heat without showering-no way, not me!
*Paul and I did not stay up too late watching a movie with
my brother and SIL after Jacob's party even though
Paul had to go to work early Sunday morning.
*Since Paul had to work Sunday, I totally didn't get
all the kids up and dressed and to church-on time!
*I would never rush from church to the store, and from
the store home to fix a quick lunch and begin preparing
for Emmie's party-including baking the cake
and making homemade icing. Nope, I did not do TWO parties
in ONE weekend-that would simply be too much!

PHEW...I'm not exhausted just typing all that!
I am not SOOOO incredibly proud of Paul for
not getting a promotion at work! He is not making
a considerable amount more money which we
totally do not need! The down side is he is not
working 7-12s for the next few weeks
which really doesn't suck for us timewise,
but is also not fantastic financially.

Noah is not the strip ninja and as such, he cannot
strip his clothes in a matter of seconds-even his diaper.
That said, he has never peed on my new rug,
and certainly not more than once! And today
when Sydney called me from the living room saying
that he had once again disrobed, this time with a dirty diaper,
I did not come running, only to find the diaper truly not dirty.
When I asked her about it, she said, 'I thought he had poo-poo
because it smells so bad in here!' Upon further inspection,
I did not find the source of the smell-apparently
he did not cop a squat in the corner of the living
room and take a big fat dump!!
make me a smelly pile to clean up!
UGH!!! I was not horrified, and laughing
all at the same time!! And Noah just kept saying,
'I sowwy. I not poo-poo on fwoor
adin, momma!' over and over, totally not making
it that much funnier. Hey, I was just
un-thankful that it was on the wood and not the

Well, I don't feel better for my confessions!
Hopefully I won't post pictures from
the weekend tomorrow!
See ya next week!

Two parties in one weekend!! I am SUPER impressed! Congrats to Paul on his promotion! It's nice when they are making more money...not so nice when they are working all the time{Jason's job is just like that}! That is too funny about Noah pooping on the least he kept in off the carpet!

So hey, I'm the HTML queen,and guess how I learned? Yep! You guessed it! JUST LIKE YOU'RE LEARNING IT!

I played around with it, studied how changes affected it, and looked up questions on the internet. You'll be a pro in no time!!! Best of luck, and if you run into any roadblocks, feel free to ask. I may or may not be able to help, but I can try!
