"Not Me" Tuesday

I've read posts like the one I'm about to do.....and laughed and laughed! But until today it never occurred to me to do one myself. Well, let me tell you! Here's what "didn't" happen to me today! Oh No...NOT ME?!?!?! LOL

*I didn't forget to look at which of the 10 floors I parked on when leaving the parking ramp to go to the Children's Museum today. And the girls didn't forget either! (Side note: I always park in the same spot. But today was so busy that I had to drive all the way to the top of the parking ramp and then back down again to finally find a spot.)

*I didn't slip on the ice and fall flat on my bum for the whole world to see while looking on floor after floor for my van. Ouch!!

*It absolutely did not take me 4 floors before finally finding my van. And of course I walked in the fruit of the spirit the whole time and exemplified patience before the 5 children in my care. Of course I didn't raise my voice in utter frustration and growl. I did not embarrass my children at all!

*I did not come home to find out that the meat I put in my garage freezer had thawed! (When the weather gets cold, my outside freezer just turns off. But in the past if something large is already frozen....it's stays frozen!) Nope....not this time.

*So I am not up right now....at 11:30pm baking, cutting, and deboning a turkey!! (But can I just say that my house DOES smell really good right now!)

Ahhh. I feel better already.
A merry heart does good, like medicine!

I can't imagine the hazards from having too much snow...I'm glad you're okay and the girls. Isn't that so true, how a merry heart is like an instant cure to life's hurt...God bless you all and keep you!

Funny! I feel real bad for you though! Do you want to enter my blog contest for Kayli?

I still feel too bad to talk about what I "did not" do. LOL! Glad you survived and enjoy that turkey.

Here is hoping that in the end, it all turned out OK. Yet while having those days it seems like one thing goes from bad to worse.

Hello, I just noticed your comment on Meredith's post. Your mention of three daughters caught my attention because I have three daughters too. It's encouraging to hear you say how much fun you have with them.
I've enjoyed my visit to your blog. :)

Oh, you poor woman! There will be better days :). At least your humor is still in place!
