Not me Monday....

Are you feeling ashamed for letting your child go to bed without brushing his teeth...again? Did you Twitter on your cell phone during a meeting without anyone knowing? Feel bad for screaming at the cat or eating Pop Tarts and coffee for breakfast? Are you embarrassed that you are far from perfect? We'll don't be. Not Me! Monday was born out of my desire to admit some of my imperfections and reveal a few moments I'd rather forget. You may find it therapeutic to join in and do the same thing! check out Mckmama's blog who is the author of Not me Monday's..........

When I was laying in bed on Sunday morning, after coming home late Saturday from the drive in, I did not think about skipping church because I was so tired from being out late, and not sleeping well...Nope, not me.

Since I'm trying AGAIN to lose weight, I most definitely did not eat a 1.89 Litre of Rolo ice cream in 7 myself, because that is like........12000 calories(well hopefully not that much), that would not help in the weight loss program. I am SO glad that I didn't do that, cause that is how I got where I am, emotionally eating, so good thing I DIDN'T DO IT.

Oh and I did not obsess over checking people's blogs or adoption boards to see who was getting the referrals this week. Never would I check every hour to see if someone had posted about receiving some sort of news, that would waste a lot of my time, interrupting what I was doing just to check. I mean, why wouldn't I just check once at the end of the day instead... Nope...not I.

I would Never ever tell my 5 year old daughter that her favorite #3 cow was getting SOLD instead of telling her the truth that in fact he gone because he is going to be in our deep freeze, providing us with meals for the year...that would be good thing I didn't do that.

I wouldn't even think about checking out this website on barrettes and buys some for my daughter who I don't even know yet. That would be impulsive and I certainly am NOT and impulse buyer. It's a good thing I didn't do that..No, not me.

I didn't call my adoption agency this week, and ask them if they thought I shouldn't be booking a trip to Mexico at Christmas, hoping that they would say, ohhhh you better not, you might be travelling to Ethiopia instead. I would NEVER think about bothering them, when they are busy getting referrals out. And I didn't almost swear, when they told me to go ahead, because they thought that it wouldn't be a problem. Nope not me...

And lastly, I certainly did not tell myself at Christmas 08 that it would be our last Christmas with just the three of us.....No....not me.

Losing my fingernails

Okay. So I have a "free day" at home today. No working, just a lot of stuff I want to get done. Packing, baking, etc. But I keep checking back to all my friends pages, to see if any referrals have come in, and I'm not getting any of my work done!!! I"m not nervous and thinking that we will be getting a referral, but I am truly excited and anxious for my friends who have been waiting so long. They are so ready and so deserving of getting their babies. The waiting game is nothing that you can explain to someone who hasn't gone thru it. They are real troupers...and it's thier time.

So come on CAFAC, let's get these ladies some babies!!! Or any other agency for that matter. Cause lets be honest, the more that get referrals this time.....the closer we are!

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.
It's time to 'fess up! Not Me! Monday is here again.

Okay, so this is my first attempt at doing a "Not me Monday". So let's give it a whirl. MckMama is a real life friend who is seriously an amazing blogger. I think her last "big" number of hits was 11 million...for real. Go check her blog out, it truly is a great blog with an amazing story. Here we go....

I did not snap at my hubby when he woke me up to give me a good bye not me.....

I most certainly did not cry at Survivor and Grey's Anatomy, that would be silly...

I definitely did not throw away a bunch of my daughters kinder garden crafts when she was out playing baseball....that would be so not right.

I didn't almost post a depressing, woe is me post about how long this adoption process is taking. That would mean I am getting impatient. Nope not me.....

I most definitely did not think about phoning my adoption agency and how many families are ahead of us. No not I...

And I most definitely did not lay in bed and think about our daughter, who we don't know yet, and think about how cute she will be..think about girl names....No way..I sure didn't...

Lastly, I did not get my hopes up slightly that maybe.....are we going to get a referral in the next month or so....Nope, not me..

So there you have it....Me being brutally honest about the things that I normally wouldn't share. Kinda refreshing being honest with myself and with you all.

On a different note, I hear a new batch of referrals are on their way in the next week or so. I really hope that there are some blog posts about some of you guys getting them. We are still a few months away I'm sure, but a girl can only hope right!! I truly am excited for all of you guys who are going to finally find out who your child is.
