"Not me!" Monday


You know it. Another Monday, another bout of "Not me!" It is, of course, the fun and cathartic blog carnival invented by MckMama over at My Charming Kids. Check out her blog! She's pretty charming, too.

There is no way that I was a teensy bit relieved that we didn't have Friday School last week. Nope, not me! I never feel that it's a challenge to get my brood out of the house by 8:45 AM, and I am never thrilled to not have to go out in the rain.

I certainly don't have to suppress a giggle every time I see Kyle in his Eeyore costume. And I find nothing humorous about Eeyore doing math.


Nothing at all.

On our way to the pumpkin patch on a dreary Sunday afternoon, we absolutely were able to resist stopping by the house. And if we had, we would have been impervious to the charms of newly-hung drywall.


And if we had stopped by the house, and were so pressed for time, I certainly wouldn't have gone over to meet a future neighbor who came outside for a moment. Even if she is pregnant. With triplets. Who will almost certainly be born within a month or so. And I'm sure we wouldn't have had a lovely conversation...

And I definitely didn't discover that I had an actual pout on my face on Friday, after learning that a friend of mine was going out for pizza...while I was home cooking chicken soup - which didn't appeal to me at all just then. But if I did, I would've laughed at myself immediately!

Very cute post! Love your blog. So glad I found you through MckMama's blog. Homeschool moms make me so happy. (You guys also put me to shame...) I think a way to ask the "How was school?" question might be to play a little "game" my husband and I started when work-related stress became too much. We were both bringing so much frustration home, making it hard to enjoy the off time. So, we talk to each other over dinner about ONE bad thing and FIVE good things that happened everyday. Sometimes the FIVE are pretty sketchy--like no bills in the mail, but it's been really fun to see what kind of things we come up with!
