Not Me: Bella and Dryer Woes

“Not Me” – Confessing some of my (or my family’s)  faults, failings and quirks by denying them. When our dryer went out, we knew that we would simply purchase a new one, especially since we get a lot of rain and we’re heading into the cold months. With 12 people in the house, there is…

Not Me: Popcorn, Babies and Mold

“Not Me” – Bravely confessing some of my (or my family’s)  faults, failings and quirks by denying them. It has not been more than 5 months since my last ‘not me’ post, even though I know that some people, who call themselves our friends, (I’m not naming names here ’cause I’m just that nice) ONLY…

Not Me: Bird Poop, Socks and Ear Rings

“Not Me” – Bravely confessing some of my (or my family’s)  faults, failings and quirks by denying them. We have not had a large marker mural on the wall spanning the length of the staircase even though we’ve had multiple groups of company through our home. I always make sure my house is pristine before…

Not Me: Outside Play

Nicholas

After 5 winters in Knoxville without any ‘playable’ amounts of snow, we did NOT receive many, many lovely playable snowfalls this year after I had given away all of our snow pants, boots and  gloves. I did NOT put sandwich baggies on Nick’s hands and cover them with a pair of socks so that he…

Not Me Concert

Isabella

“Not Me” – Bravely confessing some of my faults, failings and quirks by denying them. Last Sunday after our worship service and fellowship meal (think no nap and a tired 8 month old) we headed to the University to listen to one of the students in our church perform as part of the symphony orchestra….

Not Me: Dancing, Late Nights and Eggs

“Not Me” – Bravely confessing some of my (or my family’s) faults, failings and quirks by denying them. Immediately after asking the children to be more careful in the kitchen, I did not proceed to drop a carton of eggs on the floor and I did not drop a second cartons of eggs a few…

Chocolate Cake and Unmatched Socks: Not Me

Chocolate Molten Cake

“Not Me” – Bravely confessing some of my faults, failings and quirks by denying them. ♦ I do not have a unmatched sock pile bigger than a healthy two year old. While I was working at sorting the unmatched socks, Bella did not bypass the piles and piles of unsorted socks and head directly for…

Having Someone for Dinner: Not My Kids

Mark

“Not Me” – Bravely confessing some of my (or my family’s) faults, failings and quirks by denying them. Since our family lives in Knoxville and we moved here from Kingsport, one may think that the Scattergories task of thinking of a U.S. city that starts with ‘K‘ should be a piece of cake.  Of course…

Not Me: Gingerbread, Superman and Ears

“Not Me” – Bravely confessing some of my faults, failings and quirks by denying them. Even though I was behind on my to-do list, I did not purchase pre-fab gingerbread house kits for the kids to decorate rather than purchasing candy, making homemade frosting and hundreds of homemade cookies for them to decorate and allowing…

Not My Child or Why I Don’t Post Regularly

“Not My Kids” – Bravely confessing some of my kid’s antics and quirks by denying them. When Colby (4) tried to help by bringing the laptop computer to me, he did not trip and fall sending the laptop skittering across the ground and resulting in a computer that is no longer usable. ♦ Colby did…
