not me monday



check out more NOT Me's at Mckmama's blog HERE.

So I would Never go to the pj drawer of my3 yr old daughter's dresser and pull out Purple unicorn footy pj's only to discover she has out grown them.. do i put them in a bag to haul to the shed .YES OF COURSE.. I would NEVER EVER just find her a pair that fit and put THOSE unicorn ones on my 2 yr old SON!!! i also would never give my son a pink sippy cup or when he asked for chocolate milk and i Realize im almost out of it and mix it half with white milk and half chocolate. My daughter who was raised on goats milk and we buy it at the store will only drink milk if it comes out of the goat milk container.so when it gets empty i WOULD NEVER pour the fresh goats milk in the old rinsed out container and put it back in the fridge.NOPE not me.. I would also never use a semi dirty dish cloth on my foot to mop up a spill of said milk.I would also not ever have decided on my own what theme my daughters room should be with out asking her and buy a complete bed set and accessories and wall border only to discover a year later when her "new " room is still now where near done that she prefers a TOTALLY different theme aka Dora and just decided for Christmas i will buy her NEW Dora stuff and pass the unused Strawberry Shortcake stuff down to my unborn daughter for her bedding.. Not even born yet and already getting hand me downs.. NOT NOT ME..

Wordful and Wordless Wednesday

Well being as tomorrow is a holiday and there is a a lot to do around here im combining these two memes in to one.. below are links to each respective sponsor of the meme..Click on the button below for wordful Wednesday and HERE for Wordless Wednesday.






So what is working for me is to get a good family pic taken early so i have enough time get my Christmas cards out this year in case the baby comes early so here are the pics Ive taken so far and am thinking i need to take a few more as NO one but me seemed to be to interested in cooperating for a pic last Saturday.
Instead of complaining I reckon I should be thankful that my family is all healthy and all together for the holidays. Even if they WONT cooperate.

tackle it tuesday..

Tackle It Tuesday Meme

this week i had to tackle on of my least favorite things to do.. I had to clean out my fridge, freezer and pantry to get ready for all food that would have to be stored , frozen and the leftovers. I got it all done also I am tackling my storage shed to find my christmas decorations for the tree. I think we are goin to put a real one this year , both kids are old enough to leave it along and next yr we will have to use a fake one cause Ellie will be up and in to everything around this time.. The lights are up on the outside but inside it still looks like fall.

Making your home sing Monday..

Making your home sing Mondays

Welcome to the Making Your Home Sing Monday meme! Every day you are doing something to make your house into a home for yourself and your family (if you have one). My point with each Monday post is, what are you doing or going to do today to make your home sing?

well after laying down the law last week my house has been slowing getting back inorder.. and yes she is compiling with my rules but only by the skin of her teeth . She took off again this time with a different person for a few days and i am glad to have her gone.I think I am just goin to ask her to leave for good. She is creating a strain on my mental well being and when she leaves I feel a HUGE weight disappear. The kids behave much better. I have gotten so much done this morning while she was gone that was on her list to do that she had been putting off. All the floors are swept and mopped, Changed all the sheets, did the dish's , scrubbed the toilet and tub, picked up the kids room, gathered all the dirty laundry and started to wash a load after i made a double batch of laundry soap cause i realized i was out, Fixed breakfast and got both kids up and dressed..They are watching Micky mouse while i blog.. thank goodness for playhouse Disney .. so i hope your home is singing as we celebrate thanksgiving and remember . dont eat to much turkey ..


Happy homemaker Monday..
