"Not Me!" Monday

UPDATED: Oops- I am not such a newbie that I hit "publish" instead of "save" on Sunday so that the date of the post is actually Sunday and not 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 has not been doing this week.

I was not so excited about "Not Me!" Monday this week that I started a blog just to participate. And, I did not read every one of last week's Not Me! posts to my husband all the way to Indianapolis (a 3 hour tour trip) last Monday. And, I definitely did not stalk MckMama's blog to see when Mr. Linky appeared today. Who would do all that?

I also did not eat three packages of Skittles and drink only diet coke today for Mother's Day - That would definitely not be my favorite meal ever (And, I did not just call diet coke and skittles a meal!) Refusing to share said meal with my daughter would definitely be over the top - So I really did eat them in front of her - NOT!

Lastly, I am not totally excited that just writing this post has lessened my stress level because my daughter got sick on Mother's Day eve and have to be hospitalized for 10-14 new IV antibiotic days because of an infection. I am not secretly hoping that everyone on MckMama's blog will pray for my daughter too. Her name is Megan. She is the girl next to my husband in our "Orange for Stellan" family picture shown at the top right column that was not taken in our hospital room by our nurse too late to be included in the post that had too many pictures. (Which, by the way, I was not ever so proud to get so many compliments on the fact that we all matched each other and never took a better family picture than the one taken at that bedside. Certainly, not me!

Wow, that did not feel so incredibly good to get off my chest that I want to participate in Not Me! Monday again. Hopefully, I won't get the prize for the most lame confessions of a blogging newbie.

I'm so glad you started a blog!!! I am an avid blog stalker.:) Do you mind if I put a link on my blog??? I know of quite a few people who would be blessed by it and could get some great advice as well as them blessing you.:)

Will send some prayers your way! As a fellow blogstalker myself, I really enjoyed your post! Looking forward to your future NMM posts!

I'm so happy you created a blog so that you could post on NMM. But I am even more happy to pray for your daughter Megan. (I am not a blogging expert by any means but I have been doing it for a few months and I am pretty sure your blog is more advanced than mine! Way to go!)

I love the blogroll. It makes blog stalking much easier.;) Sure you can reciprocate.:) I will continue to pray for Megan. I ran across a blog the other day and I thought of you. It's haileyandcartersdream.com. Here is another family doing everything they possibly can for their children. I hope you are blessed and encouraged by it.
