Not Me, Monday!

Dear Monday,

I'm sorry you have such a bad reputation of being a dreaded day. I, for one, adore Mondays. I usually have the day off, since I work a lot of weekend shifts. The kids are in school, the husband is at work, and Gabe and I have the house to ourselves. I get to work out with Becky in the morning (and burn off those calories I consumed all weekend), then drop Gabe off at preschool after lunch. Then I have two blessed hours TO MY SELF!

So you see, Monday, I really do love you.

Oh, one more reason to love Mondays...the "Not ME, Monday" posts created by MckMama (see link on sidebar). Yep, confession is good for the soul.



On to my Not Me, Monday! post:

1. I did not let my four year old play ping-pong in high heels. I will not save this photo, scrapbook it, and pull it out for his prom date to see...

2. I am not taking care of a patient who grew up in my small hometown, who I totally had a crush on when I was, like, nine years old. And I would never tell you if I did, 'cause that would totally violate HIPAA rules.

3. I did not almost swoon when Edward appeared on the screen last Friday night.

4. I did not suck down two margaritas, an appetizer, a salad, and a steak all at one sitting. Can you imagine how hard it would be to work that off?

5. I did not allow my husband to give our kids an early Christmas present (Rock Band, anyone? Lula and Scotty and Michelle, wanna give it a try?).

6. I am not counting down the hours 'til Thanksgiving. (Okay, so I am...this is one of my favorite holidays, and this year, I am the hostess. I love to entertain, and with so many of our friends and family joining us, it's going to be awesome. I'm even using Jen's turkey recipe which she so graciously shared...I'll let you know how it all turns out.)

Okay, that's all I've got. C'mon guys, you've got to give this a try! And give poor, misunderstood Monday a break for once...

Rock Band at Thanksgiving!! Morgan is gonna be sooooo freakin' excited and then those kids are gonna have to move over for us!! They will love rockin' out with their mom's. Is it for Wii?

Have a good two hours to your self. I will be busting my but at work today. Hamburger and french fries, always a busy, stinky day.

As the mother of an 18 year old, I can tell you that someday you will LOVE this photo more than you can realize and your son will really have the confirmation he's been searching for to prove that you are insane. (because I did not ever take compromising photos of my son while he was growing up that I am going to share at his high school graduation party in June).
You will LOVE Rock Band. We do.

Oh I can't wait for that picture to show up in the little slide show that's at his wedding reception :)

Jenny and the Princess Peonies said...

Yeah for Monday! I keep telling my husband I want Rock Band too! I am so jealous! I am glad you liked Twilight! I have a school girl crush on Rob...and that kissing scene put me over the edge...ooohhhh...I can't help myself! I realize I am 32. I just don't have to act like it right? My sister has started calling me a Cougar!!! I'm not that old and he's not THAT young right????

Becky said... I don't remember you swooning.

But I do think you gave a little shriek and clap your hands....I'm just sayin.

Let the good people know.

I personally do not hate Monday's but for some reason I need that day to get my head back into the week mode. I love that picture of Gabe.... I have one of my little guy in something sorda like that and I am just waiting to pull that gem out.

HiHoOhio said...

Yes you did chug two margs! And I look forward to your entertaining! See you Thursday!

Keeper of the Skies Wife said...

Oh my those it!

I clapped my hands and squealed when Edward came out!!

JANE said...

That picture is PRICELESS!!

And I was actually swooning(and sweating) over Jason stalking across the ballfield. Forgive me, It's only because my book is ordered but not read yet.....LOL!!
Bad boys get me everytime!

Kat said...

Oh, that picture is great. Good for you for not sharing it on the internet. For the entire world to see.

And I am going to use Jen's recipe, too. Can't wait to mix my Italian dressing and butter :-)
