Not Me! Monday-My Knight in Camo

Welcome to Not Me! Monday a blog carnival created by McKMama. You can head over to her blog and read what she and everyone else has not been doing this week after you read mine.

This past week my husband went on his hunting trip that started with him leaving on Wednesday evening after my bell choir practice. I was not not happy about his hunting trip. I did not try to get him to forgo the trip with some crying, weeping and feeling sorry for myself. I am a self reliant, strong willed woman who would never try use the "emotional woe is me card". I did not pray really, really hard to God for him to shoot a turkey on the first day so he would be able to come home early. I would not ask God to take time out from more important things to feed my selfish behavior. I did not take my kids to a restaurant on the second night of the trip then let them drink chocolate milk and stay up an hour after bedtime. Nope not me! I did not have a panic attack the same evening when a horrible thunderstorm blew in making me believe the lights would go out leaving me "alone in the dark". Not me!, I am more controlled than that and never let my fears overtake me. I did not call my husband at 10:30 that night crying and ask him to come home a day early. Nope! My husband did not cut his trip short and come home Friday night at 8:45 and surprise me and the kids! Not my husband! I did not feel like a huge weight was lifted from my chest when he came home to be by my side. No way, not me! I am an independent woman who can handle running the house by myself.

When my kids were younger, they loved their mama MUCHO because I'd take them to Wendy's after swim practice when the hubs was out of town. It's a wonder neither one of them has high cholesterol! SITS sent me by, and I'm glad they did...
