Here I go again....go to this blog to check out all of the others who are posting a "Not Me Monday" Oh wait....I did not check out her blog first...and she is on a break for the week.
I did not drive all the way to my mother's house ( 1 hour away) so that my kids could play with their cousins..
I did not leave my house in complete chaos, because I am tired of cleaning it again...and again....and again...
I did not sleep in until 9:00 am on a Monday, and let my husband do all of the morning kids stuff today.
I did not enjoy having no computer access for one entire week while our DSL was down.
I am not enjoying the fact that their isn't school for another week...
I did not let my daughter spend all of her Christmas money on American Doll clothes...
And my mother and I did not start planning a trip to Chicago this summer to take my daughter to the American Girl store...for her 6th birthday.

This is my first week at attempting "Not Me Monday" I have been reading this blog for a while now and I have always wanted to try it...so here it goes...
During this past week, I did not buy my daughter a light up reindeer for the front of our house. And I have not forgotten to to plug it in each day since.
I did not buy 2 boxes of outdoor lights with the intention of putting them on my house and they are not still sitting in the box on my kitchen counter.
I did not pay the girl across the street .50 cents a package to wrap all of my Christmas presents, because I don't have time to do it myself.
I did not buy my own stocking stuffers for my husband to put in my stocking this year.
I did not yell at my husband for being sick knowing that he wasn't going to help clean up before his 30 relatives come over for Christmas Eve.
I did not praise God when my house cleaner called at 9pm last night to see if she could come today instead of Friday!
And right now...I did not refuse to put my daughter's American Doll shoes on her dolls feet for the third time in 3 minutes!
There you go! Happy Not Me Monday!

I am loving the fall weather, but my head is still in summer and i can't quite figure out what to wear or how to dress my children. It is cold in the morning, but here in N. Cal. it can be 80 degrees by noon.
So, we are busy. This blog has taken a back burner. Pictures are going to be uploaded, maybe.

My sister and I did it together so it was fun!
Distance: .5 mile swim (2x around the cement ship) 22 miles bike ride, and 5 mile run.
It was the longest triathlon I have done yet, so it was pretty challenging. Oh yeah, I hadn't kept up with my training like I did in the spring, so it was harder than I anticipated...
In fact, there were two distances, the "Mighty Mermaid" and the "Sprint" my sister and I came in dead last out of both races...but we finished. That is what counts!
Above are pictures of the ship we swam around, and "Team Cupcake" a crazy bunch of women here who do triathlons...well...I'm done with triathlons...until next spring...

I just can't beleive how much fun it is, and how easy the once dreaded events are now. The girls are older and it is fun to take them on theses little adventures.
What was I thinking...I woke up the next morning still feeling the affects of the ride...
