Not Me Monday



Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week. Please be praying for little Stellan

So, it's Not Me that in the last 3 days has had either one of my two dogs or children throwing up and/or diarrhea. I have Not become best friends with my carpet shampooer and It's definitely Not Me that IS. DONE. with sickness and running the mammals, that live in my home, to their appropriate doctors.

It's Not Me that has nothing planned for our Spring Break. Well, I have plenty of stuff planned that my kids are not thrilled about. So, I tweaked the week a bit and hopefully have a couple days open for nothing but fun! Just. As. Soon. As. B Stops Throwing up.

It was Not Me that got to work in my yard all weekend. It was not a GLORIOUS weekend here. Aside from all the stuff floating around in the air that causes my family to have wicked allergies, the weather was splendid. Have you ever heard the saying Carolina Blue Skies? Yeah, this past weekend is why.

It definitely was not me that had some time to re-pot some plants inside and divide some plants outside. It was not me that got to garden all day and did not buy a single plant! I also started some plants from seed a few weeks ago and they are coming in nicely. I can't wait to get those in pots and beds. I really hope they do well. If I could be successful bringing seeds to plants - the world of gardening would be a whole new place!

And it's Not Me that is working through a meaty issue going on between some people I care about. It's not totally settled but I can say that I see some light at the end of the tunnel. Sometimes, you just have to realize that people are making the best decisions they can and are not intentionally meaning to hurt anyone. I absolutely cannot live in a negative place for long. I don't enjoy the darkness of that at all. So, I'm glad to see healing begin and people moving on for the best. I am starting to learn that the process of healing and working through situations is often more important than the end result.


No, it was Not Me who just revised this post so I could link up with Not Me Monday and did it too late and could not link up. Such a typical thing for me. Sigh
