"Not me!" Monday

This brings us to another edition of "Not me!" Monday, as created by MckMama at My Charming Kids. I encourage you to check out her blog...it's fabulous.

During the past week, I definitely didn't bring in a little boy's jacket which had been left out back all night long, discover that I had also brought in a frog, scream, and shake the thing off of my hand, never to be seen or heard from again. Nope, not me! I would never be so excitable or silly. Frogs are not startling, after all!

And I certainly didn't allow my 3-year-old to sing the "Jungle Book" song "The Bare Necessities" while attending to nature's call in the restroom of a pizza parlor. Just because it was cute. I mean, there were other people there, who probably didn't want to be serenaded whilst urinating. So I'm sure I would have put a stop to that, beary soon.

I absolutely didn't show our house to an interested party not once, but twice this week...only to get an offer a few hours later from an entirely different buyer. That makes no sense. And I'm certainly not wracking my brain, trying to figure out who it is that wants to buy the joint. And when it was that they came...

I definitely didn't have my first new-pregnancy visit with my midwife this week, at my own house! What? And I wasn't rather thrilled to discover that she gets raw milk from the very same farm that we do. When she lives across the city? That'd be a little crazy.

It's totally not driving me a little crazy that I don't know what fresh produce we'll be getting in our (very first!) CSA basket this week. I am not a planner at all, and I'm sure that I can whip up something spectacular each and every day, with whatever they send us. I'm not so excited that I'm likely to lie awake at night, thinking about it. That would be....just, weird.

And I'm not utterly thrilled that Jeff is taking today off from work, in honor of our anniversary! Which was, of course, yesterday. We are not having a babysitter come over tonight, and we are not going to enjoy a romantic dinner at an amazing fondue restaurant. Anniversary, schmanniversary...right? ;)

Happy Anniversary!

I had the same feelings at our first in-home midwife appointment. It just feels so good to be home and be loved that way.

Hope everything works out with the new offer on your home ~ congrats on that!

Love, Wardeh

We went out for fondue for our anniversary too, though our anniversary isn't for 2 more weeks... gotta take advantage of the babysitter (Oma) when she's in town!

Happy anniversary!

Happy anniversary!

I'm laughing at you laying awake at night thinking about produce. What have our lives become?

Happy Anniversary! The Melting Pot sounds great! Maybe we'll have to give it a try next time we visit.
