Not Me Monday...I havent played in so long

So I haven't played Not Me Monday's in a while...seriously I haven't. I haven't even blogged in a while so while I get back into the swing of things feel free to wander over to the amazing MCK Mama site to check out other Not Me Monday's.

Christmas is in the the palms of our hands and I am so not ready. I haven't wrapped, I haven't shopped really that much. I haven't even given gift giving much thought. I think it is because I am in denial. My parents are not coming this year and well that does not make me happy. I am not happy and joyful about spending this time of year with out them.

It might also be because of the lack of cash flow this year. So millionaires we are not so I am not buying the latest and the greatest. Our tree was a big purchase and I didn't even get the one I wanted. I did not so loathe the couple in the lot while Campbell and I were there. They were getting this amazingly tall and gorgeous tree. I so did not want to shout out..."I saw it first!"

I did not cry this past Friday from the stress of almost having my husband snowed in on the east coast. I was panic ridden and was trying to keep the faith that he would get home.

I did not forget that about the load of laundry I started on Thursday night until Friday night when I thought "hey it smells kinda funny in the laundry room."

I made brownies the other day and so did not eat the last one all the time letting my husband believe that he could have the last one.

I so did not take my children for a stroller ride to the pack n mail this afternoon. I so did not, I did not take them in this very cold and dry winter weather we are having. I would never consider taking my children out in 39 degree weather just so I could mail a Christmas gift and cards. Isn't fresh air a good way to get them to sleep easier.

I am so glad that I got on the computer tonight and actually posted a real post. I will so be back next Monday with hopefully a real good Not Me Monday.

I feel for you. I have never had to spend a Christmas without my whole family. I don't know how I would do it.

We have Christmas at our house. We have over 20 people here for the day. It's my favorite day of the year. You are welcome to come join the fun!

Merry Christmas!

Now I am more sad than ever. Will miss having Christmas at the Guys house, but it is either Buddy's birthday or Christmas. If only we lived closer, how much fun it would be to watch the little ones opening gifts at Christmas. Miss you all lots. mom
