This past week, it was NOT me that went crazy like a mad-woman to get her house cleaned up just to go on vacation. It drives me nutso to think I'm coming home to a really messy place, so trust me, my kids do NOT think I need to be committed.
I also did NOT squeal out loud with excitement when I learned that the kids' Grand Jury appearance AND school had been cancelled which meant we got to leave early for our trip.
I most certainly didn't have SO many things left to do that we ended up leaving after school would have gotten out anyway *sigh*
I did NOT fall asleep while my husband was driving through a blizzard even though I knew he needed my eyes to assist him in seeing what was ahead of us. Heck, I was tired from all that packing!
At NO TIME did I thoroughly enjoy the fact that we were taking a rather lengthy trip to go enjoy a snow-filled Christmas vacation even though there was plenty of white stuff in our own back yard.
You did NOT see me stop at a snow covered rest area, attempt to stage what I thought was a really funny photo, only to end up flopping down in the snow with my camera when I misstepped. (It's hard to see what's under a foot of snow!)
I also did NOT do the same exact thing while taking a walk with my kids to the lodge. Of course I was guiding them carefully and the area between the sidewalk and the road had a ditch that you couldn't see in all that snow so of course I wouldn't have tried to step there. I'd look like a flailing idiot if I had!
One more thing I didn't do - I didn't get up early this morning and spend over an HOUR trying to get my daughter's new iPod functioning so she wouldn't think I was a lousy gift-buying parent trying to save a buck or two and passing of shoddy junk as gifts. What is that number to Apple anyway?? This super cool shiny new equipment is a pain in the rear, and mine is already bruised!
I also didn't forget that today was Monday because I've been gone from home and have absolutely NO clue what day it is until I look at other people's blogs. I'm probably going to miss Christmas if I don't be more careful!
