welcome friends.....thanks for popping in my world....
I'd love to know you've stopped by, so please note that the comment section is now found at the title of each post.

Not me Monday

Good morning! (or afternoon/night.....whenever it is that you are popping in my world).....I hope this finds you smiling and well.....


After surviving a week of cooking, shopping, cleaning, decorating, shuffling, bustling, and lots of eating.....I thought today would be a good day to lighten up and join in on the Not Me Monday Fun. It's a great way to look back and just have a good laugh at your own expense which, as you know.....I am totally all about.

So without further adieu (what does that mean anyway???).......I give you a little glimpse of a few days in the life of *~Michelle~*

I will not shameless start by encouraging you to start following my other blog, The Jesse Tree. This is a nightly devotional, starting tonight and is a beautiful way to learn the story of God's salvation plan from Creation throughout the Old Testament. You can get your crafty-self on and make ornaments if you would like for each devotion. It's just a wonderful way to spend a little more time with your family/children and really take in what this Season is truly about.

I also will not be pushy encourage you to grab the button (that my good friend Dawn's techy son made for me) and put it on your blog to help spread the Word. (you can get the button/code over at Isaiah 11: 1-2)

How awesome will it be to have so many families worshiping together.....all in the name of Jesus!!!

This weekend, I did not notice while driving to my 25th high school reunion that I only polished ONE hand! Nahhhhhhh.....I wouldn't be that scatterbrained. So I did not have to stop at a pharmacy on the way and try to match up the polish colors. I certainly did not walk around with two different shades of brown nails. Nope! Not me! But, this is a picture of me and my dear friend Karen, we've been friends since Kindergarten!

(And I know that you did NOT immediately just calculate how old I am with that last statement .......you would never do that! *wink)

I did not make arrangements to pick up our mama goats from their "brothel visit" as my 18-year-old son calls it this morning. Apparently, he has come to the conclusion that we are part of a goat prostitution ring since we paid a stud fee......and is quite disgusted about it.

When we headed out for Round 2 of Black Friday shopping........I did not accuse Josh of being scatter brained about leaving his wallet and cell phone at home. I did not relentlessly tease him for approximately five full minutes that my ADD was rubbing off on him after all these years together........all while I was sitting on them the whole time. No, my butt can not be that padded that I wouldn't notice.

And lastly.....I did not walk in on my toothless princess one night to find her watching TV in my room........in my bed.......with a chicken!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes.....she brought Poof (remember that story???) in and had him wrapped up in a towel, sleeping bag style and they were watching iCarly together. Of course I was tempted to take a picture, but thought that might encourage the matter more. *sigh* I told you she was Elly May Clampett!

OK, I must get going, I hope I gave you a good giggle on my behalf today.....I'm good like that!

Tons to do......we are getting our Christmas tree tonight, so I have furniture to move and dust bunnies to trap. I hope you had a blessed and safe Thanksgiving break.....don't forget to join us in worship with The Jesse Tree!

Peace and love~

You are too funny my friend! I love the goat story. And how cute to find her in the bed with the chicken (I think ;)

Thanks for the info about the Jesse tree. I am going to look into it. That is exactly what I was looking to do with my family this year.

Take care my friend!
Hope you have a great week!

Michelle, I did NOT laugh at all while reading your post today. You are NOT funny!

But truly I do love the devotional idea. I will head over and check it out. Have a great day decorating for Christmas!

Joyce said...

Oh you are NOT funny at all....Happy Monday!

Kristina P. said...

You are NOT clever or awesome! :)

Shirley said...

OK...I HAD to laugh at the chicken! :) :) :)

momstheword said...

I loved this, too funny! Not sure what's funnier: that you painted only one hand, sat on the phone, or your daughter was watching t.v. with a chicken!

I think the chicken wins since that would never happen in my home as we don't have any.

Tracy said...

Thanks for this post - I enjoyed a good laugh. Especially about only painting one hand's nails and the goat prostitution ring.

BTW - Adore the Jesse Tree idea. I'm currently putting together plans for Christmas so this came at a great time.

The Things We Carried said...

I did NOT immediately say to myself, 2009-1999=10, 1999-1989=20, 1989 minus 5= 1984, What, we are only two years apart?! And then I did NOT redo the math ;).

Beth E. said...

Calculate your age??? No way, not me! lol

Love the story about the wallet and cell phone. That totally sounds like me!

Great NMM!

Denise said...

So happy to give you all a good laugh on my account. Laughter is truly a gift from God.....Lord knows I have used it often in our trials to get us through :D

Alicia....I did have a wonderful time....it was so fun to see everyone!

Your posts always bring a smile to my face. I can see your sweet little toothless princess in YOUR bed with Poof. How stinkin' adorable is that? I certainly will NOT tell my little princess about it for fear of finding her in MY bed with a chicken!

Thanks for the little plug for my techie son! Go to his website at www.danstechstop.com
Hugs of JOY!
