Not Me Monday - Stop Complaining

I did not spend 2 days last week doing absolutely nothing except for making sure that Glynis stayed alive and the boys ate dinner. Because Mom's don't get sick days! Even when we absolutely cannot function, we still have to be functional!

I didn't tell my family over and over again how horrible I felt. I'm not a complainer.

I did not ever get irritable or short with my family. I'm always sugar sweet with everyone. You know, like a Disney Princess. That's me!

Now that I've gotten that off my chest, I'd like to offer up a reprieve from all of this deceit. Don't get me wrong, I love MckMama's Not Me Mondays! But how about trying this out tomorrow...Write a truthful list! And instead of fessing up to all of your faults, tell us about what you did right this past week! Tomorrow is "Toot Your Horn Tuesday!" So pat yourself on the back. Tell us how wonderful you are. Be your own best fan. Join the fun! I'll have a Mr. Linky ready for you every Tuesday. Can't wait to get this ball rolling. See you tomorrow!

Yeah ... I'm not a complainer either. Cough, cough ... at least not more than three or four times a day. Ha!

Seriously, sorry you have been feeling bad. I totally know the feeling way to often.

Enjoyed reading your blog!!

I am sooo NOT a complainer. I am so the textbook definition of a Disney princess.

I will try Toot Your Horn Tuesday. Sometimes it's easier to tell your faults than it is your strengths!

Thanks for visiting my blog...and commenting! Awesome!

Thanks for the blog comment and to answer your questions we are the "Powers" family. Ya know more than one

Funny thing is, I've had a blog for about 3 years, and just recently (like in the last 2 months) came up w/ that name. And I've been married almost 8 years and never 'got it'.
