Amundsen House of Chaos

Let's face it, when you have a kid who survived a stroke, life is always going to be a little chaotic.

Not Me Monday

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.
In my rush this morning I would never not spell check my post, then go back and recheck it and realize that I have no more spell checker on blogger. What's up with that? It's gone. Sorry you'll just have to put up with my very bad spelling for today.
Where oh where to begin this week? Sitting here typing this I can't think of a single thing to write about. I know I've had many many Not Me moments this past week, so let me think for a minute.

I would never get my friend a blanket out of the closet so she could nurse her baby, smell it on the way down the hall, realize it still smelled like milk even after having been washed and then spray it with febreeze room spray just so she wouldn't have to smell old milky blankets. That's gross and I would never do that! (Sorry Jen!)

I would never tell Colby's doctor that Botox and Phenol injections weren't working and I would never do them again. Then realize 6 months later that they do indeed help his dystonia (a small minor amount) and so then schedule another round of them without consulting her. She laughed when she walked into the room and said I thought you might be back. I would never presume to tell a doctor I know more than they do! Except I didn't really say it out loud!

I also would not end up having to take Colby to 2 pediatricians and 3 specialists for the Ear Nose and Throat Physicians Assistant to finally look up his nose and say "Yup he has a sinus infection!" I would think that that was a possible infection before I went to all those doctors instead of thinking it was something far more complex, which it usually is! I wouldn't do that.

I would never send Riley to bed at 6:30 filthy because she got up at 6:00 in the morning played really hard with cousins and friends and was beyond the point of exhaustion by then. I also would have never posted about doing this same thing before in Not Me Mondays. That would be like admitting I do it on a regular basis. Which of course I don't.

I would never tell Jahnna that she had to go to her room for throwing a HUGE screaming temper tantrum. When she said No I won't go, I would not proceed to pick her up and carry her like a baby down the stairs to her room. She's 6 for heaven sake. THat would be ridiculous behavior for both of us.

I also would never blog stalk the blog frog community reading other peoples responses to questions on mormonism. I would jump right in wiht my experiences instead of realying on their much better, much more clear and much more researched answers to say what I could never put into words. That would be timid and shy and something I got over a long time ago. I would never do that.

Kind of a lame Not Me Monday but it's really all I've got. Besides if I don't go get Jahnna into the car I'll be able to add that I'm never late dropping my daughter off at school. She is always on time, dressed immaculately with curled hair in pressed clothes that never wrinkle or some such nonsense like that. And if you belive that she ever shows up to school like that you should go back and read some of my other posts on our crazy chaotic beautiful life!

You are so hilarious. And my goodness, I guess I am just not brave enough to share my not me moments with the blogging world.
