I am NOT posting early in spite of being put off by the 60+ people who did so last week, and I did not say that I was above such behavior...only to join them this week (if you can't beat them, join them, huh). I just returned from linking and am NOT totally disappointed to find myself in the 40's!!
I did not feed my family rice and beans for 4 meals this week.
I am not forcing them to eat it all month Monday-Thursday so they can learn to appreciate the fabulous choices we have here in the US, and all the delicious, healthy, widely varied meals their mom fixes them on a regular basis. Or so they could have a glimpse into the lives of the kids in Haiti.
I am also not really happy about the $$ I am saving by serving up this menu item. Nope, not me!
I did not refuse to allow my husband to have a bowl of cereal instead of rice and beans on Thursday night. I am not that much of a control freak, and I would never tell him what to do....after all he is a grown man!
I did not pull the starving kids in Haiti card when a child started to complain about the dinner menu this week. Not me!
I did not feel totally loved and cared for after my husband washed, dried, vacuumed, changed the oil and air filter in our van. I know he loves me even when he is not acting like my personal slave!
I did not get in a bike wreck this week and specifically say "I am not blogging that" because I have already blogged about 2 recent falls with injuries. What would everyone think if they knew I had injured myself AGAIN??As you can see in the top picture, Alayna's bike attaches to mine. She was getting brave and trying what she called "ballet moves" on her bike like the lower picture (we were moving when I took this picture by placing the camera behind my head...now that's talent, is it not??). She was doing this and it would shift her weight occasionally and veer us around, and once when she did it Holden's bike was right next to us causing our tires to tangle and Alayna and I to go down. I kept her on the grass so she wasn't hurt and I got a bruised knee and skinned hand to show for it! I felt the need to explain that it WAS NOT my fault!I did not take my kids to a Community Expo and let them run around and grab candy from the vendors (and eat it as well), and pretend I didn't know them. They did not totally think it was like Halloween with their bags and everything. I did not walk around behind them and sign up for information at a few booths to assuage my conscious. I also did not laugh as Holden grabbed some candy from the Obama campaign booth, but turned down the button someone offered!
I was not totally excited about my new (free) yard stick and 2 (also free) flyswatters! That would be a pathetic thing to be excited about, wouldn't it??
While taking a spin in Agape's flight simulator at the Community Expo, I did NOT knock off the laptop that was running the simulator as I was performing a barrel roll in the plane. I also did not "overstress the engine" (i.e. crash) while playing on the simulator. Nope, not me!
I have NOT enjoyed reading all of your posts for those of you who have joined me (Melanie, Kristen, Ben and Dollie), and I do not hope more of you will join the fun! What have you NOT been doing????
