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.

So this is NOT my first Not Me Monday - I do it all the time, just never blog about it! So now that I am not completely blog obsessed and glad that Jennifer created this awesome blog for me so I can do this - I am not going to start out my new blog by expelling all my Christmas "not mes"!

Am I not glad that Christmas is only a few short days away - nope, not me. I am not overstressed, sleep deprived, broke and totally unprepared at all. That's too bad that in just a few short days - it will all be over....for another year anyway. And next year, I am NOT breaking my vow to start my Christmas shopping in August, prepare my cards by October, have all my wrapping done by November and enjoy a stress free December. Nope - not me!

I will not spend my entire $800 Christmas bonus on household items and fun stuff for me instead of buying all sorts of gifts. I will not let the boys completely trash the house while I stand in the kitchen baking buckeye cookies that I will not totally screw up and end up throwing them all away (and it was NOT a double batch)!!

And on a final note - I will not return, regift or hide in my closet any Christmas presents.

Merry Christmas!

The Ring

I got a ring today.

From a boy.

He said it was because he loves me.

I love him too.

With all my heart.
