The Usual Not Me Monday!

The "Not Me!" Monday blog carnival was created by MckMama at My Charming Kids. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing.

As for me...

I did not do nothing all week! I was not keeled over cramping, and whining, and being grumpy! Of course it was not that time of the month! I do have to say that I have the best husband in the world! He is never emasculated or embarrassed to go buy me tampons when needed. Although, I would not ever make him do that...not me...especially not the ginormous multi-pack of like 50 of them! Haha!

Robby also did not get in a fight on Friday, sustaining such injuries as a bruised nose and jaw, a large scratch to the face, and bruised, possibly broken ribs. I know what you are thinking, and no...I am not that brutal when I am on my period! ;o)Really though...I'm not!!! He competed in a tournament on post(My husband is in the Army for those of you who don't already know.)that was basically like UFC fighting...anything goes apparently. He finished 9th out of 78! Not too shabby!

Then came the weekend. I absolutely did not give in to the temptation to have a little shopping therapy! I did not buy about 50 books for less than 20 dollars! That would just make me a bargain shopping goddess! Either that, or my husband knows where the good used book stores are...which he does not! I of course then fought the urge to go shopping for new clothes, and did not...I repeat...did not go to Ross, where they had the cutest little outfits for the girls and an adorable swimsuit for Bella! I promise I will not take pictures of all the cuteness while she is swimming at her Grandma's this week!

Sunday, Robby had CQ(24hr duty). So the kiddos and I were left all by our lonesome. Then it started raining! I am an Oregonian relocated to the desert of Texas, so I love the rain. Rain is a bit different here though! I did not look out my front window to stare at the amazing storm and find a river where my street used to be! I also didn't then go to my back door and find a lake just outside my window that used to be our backyard! Ah well, maybe our grass will turn green now.

The rain isn't the only thing that's different here.The lightening is different too! See the pic above taken from Bella's window. Instead of the bolts reaching towards the ground, they stretch across the sky. Weird!

The storm was also not so horrifically powerful that I honestly thought we were having an earthquake with how hard the thunder shook the house! I literally was picking things up off the floor that had fallen off of my nightstand. Car alarms were going off and everything.

When I text my husband to tell him how crazy the storm was effecting us on our side of town he of course did not respond by saying, "Be afraid...Be very afraid!" That would just be mean! I was not afraid!!!
