Not Me Monday!

MckMama has said that she is in need of a break, and who could blame her? I must admit, though, that I hope it won't be for long, or that she will at least keep doing "Not me!" Mondays! Too much fun!! Here goes...



This week, no matter what anyone tells you, I most certainly did not do any of the following:

On Tuesday, I did not find out by email that our home study was approved and complete. Without having the actual document in hand, I then did not wait until it showed up in our mail box on Thursday to announce it here. I would not ever intentionally create suspense. Nope, not me!

On Tuesday, I did not vote and then keep IPTV on in the background all day, listening to the news drag on and on... and on... I did not turn the TV on to the news the second I got home, and I did not fall asleep still watching the returns pour in. Nope, not me. I did not wake up in the middle of the night to hear the final results, and I am not praying for our country and the new president-elect.

I did not just check MckMama's blog in the middle of writing this to find that she posted "Not Me!" Monday!!! I did not get really excited!!!

I did not spend most of my free time this week working on our album, while fluctuating between frustration and excitement more times than I can count. DoubleT did not recognize and verbalize this roller coaster of emotions. I did not on several occasions want to throw the album at the wall, and I absolutely did not question why we are doing this in the first place. I do not know that it will all be worth it in the end.

At 1:30 A.M. last night (or is it this morning?), I most definitely did not literally squeal in delight at the way the final page of the album was coming together. I am not soooo grateful to Hansel for taking such great pictures of me and DoubleT! There is not one page in the album, entirely done, and there are not quite a few pages just a pen's stroke away from being done. Every page in the album does not at least have a background laid down.

I did not attend an adoption event with DoubleT this weekend and I did not get to fellowship with both birth moms and adoptive moms. I did not have a great time, and I did not discover that I am right on target with how obsessed I am being over this album! I did not take this as reason enough to continue being obsessed. :-) I did not then spend ANOTHER $15 on pictures at W@lm@rt. I also did not insist on going back into the store to have said pictures reprinted after we left the store and THEN discovered that half of them had our heads (ahem... DoubleT's head) cut off!

DoubleT did not fill up our car with gas @ $1.97/gallon this weekend! I did not comment that I never would have thought we would see that price again, and I did not engage in a conversation about how "I remember when" gas cost $.99. I did not get so excited, even though I know it won't last and since when did that become a good price?!?

How about you? What's gas cost where you are? What have you not done this week?

Does anybody else wish it were spring yet? Brrrr.... it's too cold!

Living in His JOY, HOPE, and PEACE...
