way late not me...

so this is the latest i have EVER done a not me. and of course i do not have my posts prepared ahead of time...which is sounding better and better. as always head over to mckmama's for more fun...and extra fun this week because there is a chance to win something!!

so i did not have a stressful week last week. i did not stress over tractors, skid loaders and nothing at all. i am not glad that we finally had a decision and am not signing papers later today for a tractor.

i did not spend about five seconds looking for a comb to comb breigh's hair with and realize i had it in my mouth.

i am not super stoked spring has seemed to arrive. i do not remind myself that it is wisconsin and things can change in a heartbeat.

i did not get slightly 'irked' that i had to BUY MY 18th month old HER OWN TICKET to her sister's dance recital. seriously. 9.25 for a toddler to not even use the seat i am paying for. something about fire codes. whatever.

i am not getting super excited for the said recital in may. :0)

i was not super excited to get a 'ransom' note from a friend last week. thanks michelle. i did not bring it to scrapbooking to show it off and laugh. i was not excited to have scrapping and de-stress a little bit while doing it. it does not ever feel good to de-stress.

i am not excited to send out my pay it forward gifts tomorrow!!

i was not also super excited to get a cute shirt from that same friend in the mail today. thanks again michelle. it was not my favorite 'design'. i am not going to dress caitlyn in it tomorrow. it is not just her size.

i also did not get an email claiming i had won a giveaway. my FIRST EVER on this blog. i do not feel a bit bad that i just copied what other people had guessed as my answer...it was not the right one. shawn is not having another giveaway celebrating her 100th post. i am not telling you to go enter. this does not get me another entry in her giveaway...

so that's that. a busy morning was had here. shaun's sister came over to drop off her money for the recital tickets. so she helped me tremendously to get the kiddos ready. yay. how nice. i am leaving this short because i have to get the kiddos ready to go so we can go sign papers for our new tractor lease. i'll try to be back later. or tomorrow.

15 loving words from you.:

i thought i saw you drive up breed st. a little while ago and figured a post would be coming soon since there wasn't one this morning for your not me monday!
can't wait to see the shirt michelle sent!
glad you are feeling better about the whole tractor thing. happy signing!

Julie said...

The new header is too cute! I can't believe you had to buy a ticket for a toddler! That's crazy!!

Beth said...

I love reading these - I should start keeping a list and post!

Hope things are calming down for you - at least the whole tractor thing should be squared away after today. (I sort of understand the cost thing - my father-in-law farms cotton, peanuts, corn and soy beans!).. Good luck with everything!

I'm so glad you guys got the tractor thing figured out. I hope the signing goes well. I think I would be upset about the ticket thing. That's rediculous!

Take care! And please send some spring our way. It has been raining for 3 days. Not fun!

Ok, the comb one cracked me up. I would totally do something like that. lOL
Hooray for you winning a giveaway too. How fun!

Rachel said...

Sounds like you had a very busy week Amanda! Spring is here too...at least for now. :)

Sending out the Pay It Forward gifts is fun. I just sent out "somebody's" today. :o)

Kelli said...

I've been waiting for your post! haha I love them all but most of all the comb thing... i do that with my phone at least 10 times everyday. in general it's not in my mouth but usually in the couch or something!

Alicia said...

LOL about the comb!!

Congrats on the giveaway! Awesome!

Shawn said...

Too funny. I cannot tell you how many times I have looked and looked for my sunglasses that were sitting on top of my head!

Wisconsin huh? I grew up in Illinois, just over the border and my brother lives in Genoa City. I was just there a few weeks ago and it definetly wans't anything near Spring then!

Thanks for playing along on my 100th post give away.

Congratulations on winning the giveaway!
I can't wait to hear about the recital and see pics! :)
BTW, I had fun playing around with the background tips you gave me. Wooo hooo. What fun!

~*Michelle*~ said...

OH YAY! You got both of my treats...everyone loves something in the mail, and I thought you deserved to smile. WEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! :)

So I won a giveaway too!!! One of those 16X20 poster prints. Now I have to decide which of my Kodak Easy Share quality photos are worth blowing up!

speaking of photos, my only request is a pic of Caitlyn in her shirt.

Thanks for commenting on my blog. It is always nice to find another mother of four. Nice to "meet" you.

Loving the new header too! I cannot believe they made you buy a ticket for an 18 month old. Crazy! It's cheaper to get a babysitter!
