"NOT ME!" MONDAY

Here's to another week of things I absolutely did not do! To join in on the fun, click here to go to My Charming Kids!

Last week, while my husband was waiting to be wheeled in to get his hernia surgery done I did not go to the hospital cafeteria to get a cup of Peet's Coffee. While I was down there, my husband did not call me to bring him his IPod. I was not getting an "SOS" signal (meaning no signal) on my phone because I was in a hospital! He did not tell the anesthesiologist, "My wife didn't answer her phone." LOL!

While I was sitting with my husband in his pre-op status, I did not remind him that now he knew how "I" did not feel in that position when I gave birth to all our five children!

I did not talk to my friend from midnight to almost 3am in the morning on Friday night. I have way more discipline than that! I did not have to get up at 8am the next morning!

I am not allowing my kids to watch a movie at 10:30 on Sunday night just because we missed the two older ones while they were at camp this weekend.

I would have fallen asleep while on the phone at that hour!

Denise said...

If you HAD not answered your phone in the hospital, you should have told your husband you were in the chapel praying for his welfare during surgery and OF COURSE you turned your cell phone off!

Carey sent me over to leave you some comment love.

Why is it that we let the kids stay up late!? My boys have stayed up past 10pm 2 nights in a row...the reason being, spring break!! I have a feeling this is how summer is going to be and I am not looking forward to that! Hoping Gabe's recovery is still going well! Take care friend!
