Things I didn't do

Okay, first things first.

I have fallen so far behind in my blogging that I fear I may never catch up with all of you.
Life, again, has gotten in the way.
So, after this post I am off to visit all of you and spread some comment love.

I was rather perfect this past week, so I lack some good "Not Me" material.
But here goes,

1.  I did actually manage to make garbage day.  However, this was certainly not done with me screeching out the door at the last minute just as the truck was pulling away.


2.  I also managed to remember library day.  This too was not done at the last minute with me racing back to the school in my jammies and slippers( yes, slippers) in order to drop it off in time.

3.  I did not cut loose on a Walmart cashier for rolling her eyes at Trinity when she politely asked for her own bag to put her princess lip gloss in.  I did not use the most sarcastic tone I could muster and say:
" How would you like to try scoffing at me like that and see how far you get?"

4. I did manage to get all - ALL the mountains of laundry done.  The are not, however, in large folded piles stiuated in various rooms throughout the house.

5. After a complete freak out by Trinity, I did not make a pretend phone call to "Santa" and express my concerns to him about her behaviour.

6. I did not spend 3 hours playing around with my new scanner and photoshop old pictures of myself and Trinity instead of cleaning the house.

Hahahaha, I love that you mouthed off at the Walmart cashier! It's not like those sacks cost HER any money.

Brian Miller said...

Glad I'm not the only one who gets a little miffed at cashiers who are rude. My family thinks I'm the only one and they are usually mortified when I say something to them.

Those are great pictures. I have made that call to Santa, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy and the police. You gotta do what you gotta do.

carma said...

Ohhhh the fake Santa call - you were pulling out all the stops ;-)

I hope you told the cashier to "have a nice day" - said in sarcastic voice

Oooh. #5 is a sneaky one! ;)

I love that photo collage! You guys are the cutest mama and daughter ever!!! LOVE IT!

Juliana said...

Oh, I wrote a whole blog awhile back about mouthing off to a cashier at Walmart who was very mean. I hope that you have a great week!!!

Arizona Mamma said...

See? You two look so alike.

As for Miss Walmart...pft, I think you went easy one her ;)

mama-face said...

I'm certainly not going to judge you on any lack of blog duty...since I don't even blog officially anymore...but I can still read and comment...yeah!

Where did you find that photo of my laundry room? And wow, I am both jealous and happy for you for having a photo scanner that actually works. You are adorable. Then and now.

Stuff could always be worse said...

I love these things you didn't do...I do some of them.

YAY for the new scanner! Can't wait to see what might appear....

And scoff all you like at that nasty Walmart worker... they should have praised Trinity for NOT throwing a hissy fit in their HUGE lineups! Ugh!

Tracie said...

I did not go back to bed after the kids left for school. I did not sleep till 10 am.

(Seriously, I feel really bad about it. I NEVER do that. I'm usually up at 5 am every morning. Guess I finally crashed.)

Christiejolu said...

OMG I love your reaction to the Walmart cashier. I so would have done that!

Tiffany said...

oh those walmart cashiers--if only the could spread their lovliness throughout every second of my day i might have to punch somebody in the neck

lisa said...

Absolutely love what you're doing with your scanner and photos. Your little girlie is such a cutie -- scan away if it means sharing more of her (and you ... she looks just like you!).

Jenners said...

I play the Santa card shamelessly too ... it is silly not to use all the tools in your toolbox!

Aww...the pics. I was wondering if you were going to do something fancy and get yours and Trinity's side by side. You really do look a LOT alike. So sweet!

I feel honored that you took time out of your busy, to come see me! It won't always be this way...it's just that some things take priority...and especially some people are more important. You're dancing as fast as you can!!

HUGS!

P.S. I had to delete the previous post b/c it was typo-heavy and I was embarrassed:)

Hey..super cool site of the ady! Thanks babe!

I so love that you got all snarky with the cashier, she had it coming. Oh and how could you not lose a few hours photo shopping those shots. Too cute!

mudmama said...

Ok, I want to punch the cashier! To be hateful to a precious child, grrrr

The Santa phone call cracks me up!!

I'm always behind on reading blogs so you're not alone there. We had library day too and I remembered, surprisingly! Also remembered show and tell!

Yes, it's been a crazy week. Just waiting for Spring - Please!!!

I always get a kick out of the things you don't do.

I like the scanner and photo posting. It has an artistic final touch.

Amo said...

I have taken a very long blog break. Trying to get back into it. It can get overwhelming when life rears its uglier head!
