'Not Me' Monday!

          

Are you feeling guilty for leaving the windows open to catch a breeze when you know the air is on? Feel like a bag lady for wearing the same shirt for days on end? Get tricked by a fake news story and feel foolish? We'll don't! 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!
Head over to MckMama's blog to see why everyone else isn't perfect!

I did not have Wednesday through Friday off of work, cause the little boy I watch was sick. I took the kids to the indoor play park on Thursday, to get some time to lay low, while they ran off some energy. I would never take them to McDonald's, just because it was in the mall, easy and convenient. I did not find Chase and Abigail's finishing touches to their Christmas outfits, while I was there. I am not super excited to get Christmas pictures taken by a friend you all might know...Erin over at It's All About Alex. I just have to try and wait for this baby to come, so baby #3 can be included in the Christmas pictures. 


 
I ended up going to the doctor's office late Thursday afternoon, cause I was having contractions and they wouldn't go away. I thought they might be Braxton Hicks, but they had already lasted for more than an hour and a half. I got to the doctor and there is no way they would look at me and say, "You are supposed to be at a different office." I would never come back with a remark like, "I remember very well that I asked for this office, cause it is right by my house." I never go to the other office. They got me in and did an exam, confirmed that I was having 'not fun' contractions and that I was dilated 2 cm. They told me to go home and see if they got worse. They ended up spacing out and I have been having them every so often since then, but nothing has changed. They said that I will probably go sometime in the next 2 weeks.I am not super happy about this news!

This weekend was not filled with fun family times that are fun traditions that I can't wait for every year. We did not have a huge cookie bake at our house on Friday night, with over 20 family members. We were not all 'wearing' flour, sugar sprinkles and  cookie dough, while singing Christmas songs in the kitchen. Somehow, most the cookies did not get left behind at our house and there is no way we have been eating them ever since.



We took the kids to the Macy's display this weekend and Abby was in love with the whole display. It was the same display as last year, but they changed a few things and added some new stuff. At the end, as a tradition, we got huge cookies, that we can never finish and there is no way Grandma bought both the kids their own huge beautifully frosted sugar cookie, for $4.25, that they both took one bite of and said they didn't like it.




 I would never be ecstatic about having a 2 day work week!

That does NOT sound like a really awesome week and I'm NOT envious of the great memories you made with your family. I'm NOT wishing you well on your pregnancy and a Happy Thanksgiving.

The last picture of the kids is adorable! I'm glad you got a break from work. How exciting that the baby will be here soon...one more week, and you'll be safe! I can't wait to hear if it's a boy or girl. It looks like you had an incredibly fun weekend!

Erin said...

Love Abbie's dress! I bet you do want to hold out on your Christmas pictures! I didn't even think about that. How fun!

I can't wait to hear the news. Try and take it easy!

Yay for coming a little early! I'm hoping my little one comes a little early, as well. We'll see, it's so hard to tell! :)

Your kids look adorable in their Christmas outfits-- particlarly your daughter's skirt... it is gorgeous! Where did you get it?

Of COURSE you're ecstatic over a 2-day work week. You'd be crazy not too! Glad you enjoyed your time off (other than the obnoxious doctor's visit!).

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Love the Christmasy pictures and I'm with you - NOT excited about a short work week.

Funny!! I would never go to the wrong doctors office either or put them in their place especially when pregnant and having contractions. Thank goodness you were convincing!! haha Happy Thanksgiving!

Love all the pics of the kids, and the cookie bake looked like so much fun.
Sorry to hear about the possible early labor. My prayers are with you guys.

Oh and Erin is taking your pics. I just think she is so talented. I'm sure your family's Christmas pictures will be awesome!

I need to get ready for Christmas around here too. I dread taking the tree out this year and Allie constantly pulling ornaments off of it day in and day out.

I don't know how I missed your not me earlier today! So sorry to hear about your contractions. That is NOT fun! Hope your pictures turned out well!!
