Not Me Monday - Family Fun Edition



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. As for us, we've had a busy summer so far. Here's a few of the highlights...

We have not spent so much time away from home this summer and on the road that Sport and Spice have not been begging to "just stay home and lay there."

Spice did not give me a "foot massage" with a bottle of hotel lotion yesterday. When I told her I had enough lotion on my feet and she should put the rest on my legs, she did not grimace and say, "But they're so scratchy."

When I was attacked by a bird during our stay in Alabama last week, my loving family did not just sit and watch from the car. When I ran for safety and dove back in the car Hubby's first words were not, "Darn it! Where's the video camera when you need one?" I think it was something more along the lines of, "Are you OK, Honey?"

I did not avoid the dreaded chore of putting away laundry after our most recent trip by stuffing most of the freshly cleaned items back in our suitcases in preparation for our next trip to the beach this week. Our suitcase has not been sitting half-packed/unpacked at the end of our bed for three days now.

Sport did not lose the weapons that came with the Lego Bionicle sets he purchased during our trip to Louisiana within the first hour of playing with them. The rest of the family (i.e., Spice, Hubby, my parents, my grandmother, my uncle, and me) did not spend a good 20 or 30 minutes scouring the floor, the yard, the driveway, my dad's shop...looking for them while Sport sat inside happily playing with his new toys despite the missing pieces.

My kids have been saying the same thing about just staying at home! LOL about the Lego set. Seems like I end up searching for tiny pieces on a daily basis!
