Not me! Monday

Oh, I am painfully behind on this week's confessions. You would think that I didn't have anything to post about...not so much this week! Its been a bit of a doozy! Check out MckMama's blog for 249 others' posts who came before me...since they were on the ball...to think I was #2 a few short weeks ago and now I've sunken to #250 this week!! The past 2 weeks have been near the end of the group as well...I must be losing my touch! Anyway, it has been an interesting week around here!

I did not get tricked into eating a cricket by my oldest child. No, not me! I am too wise to be tricked into such a thing! (It was hidden in a chocolate candy and I should have been SUPER suspicious when he kept trying to push this piece of candy on me. I was sick Monday and was tired of refusing him and seeing him disappointed, so I ate it. He then handed me a button that said "I Ate a Bug Club" Then he handed me the packaging--as I was picking cricket pieces from my teeth, thinking to myself that it tasted like a Krackel bar, but had the odd crunch that could have been a bug. The packaging indeed listed the ingredients, last of which was "1 oven roasted cricket")


I did not lose my credit card and not realize it for a month! I have no problem keeping track of important items and never misplace things.


I did not bring home a cold from Iowa and treat myself with a z-pack. It is not a miracle drug that I thank God for!


I did not take a nap on Monday for over 1 1/2 hours, thinking I had just closed my eyes when it was time to go get the kids from school. Why would I need a nap at this point in my life, especially when all my kids are at school?


I did not leave the oven on ALL day Wednesday. I would never do anything like that because I am extremely conscious of the electric bill and certainly would take all precautions to keep from burning down our rental house!!


I did not completely flunk "Stay at home mom/housewife 101" for 3 days this week when I did absolutely no cleaning, grocery shopping (after being out of town), or preparing of dinner. My AWESOME husband did not have to pick up the slack. He did not completely ACE "How to love your wife 400" this week!

Best of all, Paul and I did not giggle ourselves silly on Saturday morning as he proceeded to make fresh squeezed orange juice wearing ONLY inside out shorts. We were not picturing a chef at a restaurant preparing our food dressed as such, and our own apprehension for eating anything prepared by someone dressed similarly...guess you had to be there. If you were, you would have seen this:
Oh, yeah, he's hunky...and he's MINE! So, how about you? What have you not done this week??

I'm sorry you guys have been so sick lately! By the way, you did not HINDER me when we tried the 5. I was dying too! Besides, if I had to do a few miles straight through, you'd whip me!!

We truly have wonderful husbands!! What servant leaders they are. You ate a BUG?!! I think I found a contestant for the "Fear Factor" party I've always wanted to throw!
