Not Me! Monday!


I did not spend all week teaching my children about the First Thanksgiving, about Pilgrims and Indians. I was not impressed when they could tell me everything about the event including the ships, the date, Plymouth rock etc (remember they are 4 & 5) I did not totally crack up when I was showing them off to our principal.. and they called the pilgrims-penguins by mistake. I hid my laughter very well when my very excited students yelled, Look teacher, Mexicans - when Native Americans came to our school in full dress for a pow wow.

I did not accidentally schedule Camo Day on the last day before a break. Why would I get my kids even more excited. I would never do that to myself...

In order to get my kids to walk quietly down the hall I did not say their is a hunter looking for turkeys. We must be very very quite (we did have turkey hats on) My kids were so very quite. I was very impressed. We tip toed across the street. This hunter stuff is really working out well. I did not really get into it, jumping back saying I just seen him. At one point, I did not turn around to see my kids laying on the sidewalk in order for the hunter not to see them..

Even though, my little kids are way to stinkin' cute. I was not so very happy to hug them and send them on their way on Friday. I did not fall back into my chair thanking God for a much needed Thanksgiving Break!




I have not seen Twilight 3 times this weekend. I did not buy the book so that I could read it again, now that I have visuals.




I am not totally crushing on Rob Pattinson.


I did not have to return yet another phone to US Cellular this week. I am not crossing my fingers hoping 3x is the charm. Acck.


The atm machine did not keep my Debit Card because I put in the wrong pin 3x. I am not freaking out because I have no clue where my card is. I do not have to wake up early on my vacation to call the bank first thing in the morning. I am not a little bit embarrassed. Things like this never ever happen to me.


My boyfriend : ) Blake Shelton did not make it into the 100 Sexiest People Magazine.. (He really did make it even though, the picture is barely bigger than a postage stamp. He is so in there...)

LOL I love that the kids didn't fall to the ground to avoid the hunter!!!!

I have just read the first Twilight book...and have the next three coming ASAP! SO good! I am waiting for Christmas break to see the movie, and can hardly wait!

Julie said...

I need you to send me an email about those hats the kiddos are wearing...I want to make one with Eli!

So sorry about your phone...

Enjoy watching Twilight over and over...

Lisa & Gerald said...

Mrs. S. said...

Your kids are hilarious! I love the Camo Day idea. I will have to tuck that one away for future spirit days at school. I think that I am getting ready to read the Twlight books soon, so that should be exciting!!!

Amy said...

My family and I saw Twilight this weekend too. I LOVED it! I LOVED Edward and Bella. They were SO cute together.

Sigh....

My oldest son (16) came home and immediately began reading the first book.

I, unfortunately, am still stalking the mailman until he FINALLY brings me my copy of Eclipse. I have Breaking Dawn already, so I am crossing my fingers that the mailman brings the goods this week....And then I will have a truly thankful Thanksgiving.;)

I'm sorry that your boyfriend didn't make the list....Maybe you should do your own version of the list for your blog. I'm just saying.;)

God Bless,
Amy:)

Happy MOnday!

Kelly said...

You have such a fun job, but I can understand needing a break from time to time. Enjoy your vacation! Try and stay out of the movie theater...

Rachel said...

It was the BEST!!!Love camo day in your class! I wish, wish,wish my five year old was in your class-check out his pic-he is a cutie and would fit in your class perfectly...too bad we're in MI and you're not!!!

Dana-from chaos to Grace said...

BAHAHAHA! He is a BUNCH honey! LOL

Have a GREAT holiday week!

Megan said...

Alexis said...

What a funny list!! Thanks for stopping by my blog - I enjoyed my visit here!

Lindsey said...

Awww your kids on the sidewalk hiding from the hunter is too precious!!!

Straight to Your Hart said...

I did not just TAG you!!
Not sorry...this is Not an easy one and Not fun!!

Liz said...

Oh my gosh, I know! The movie theatre was darn near dangerous with so many women shushing and yelling shut up at each other. :)

And am I totally weird for thinking that Charlie was hot? :)

Sweet Simplicity said...

Oh, Edward! I am totally in love with the movie, Rob Pattinson, and the books!

Grand Pooba said...

Oh I am TOTALLY crushing too! I loved Twilight and that hunky vampire!

Megan said...

The kids look so cute! I swear, you're the best teacher ever. I couldn't have hid my laughter when the kid yelled "Look teacher, Mexicans!" haha :0)

super tweaky mel said...

OH NO! Your ATM card!!! Shoot

I did not have my paycheck and bank card sucked up in the abyss of the bank tunnels one year on the day before Christmas Eve. And no it wasn't all the money I had either! Nightmare!

I'm so amazed at how much detail kids know nowadays. It really is neat. That show are you smarter than a 5th grader - I don't watch it but I know that a lot of 5th graders know more specific dates of historical events than I do. It's awful in a way, but also great! Kids are amazing!

angie said...

Rob Pattinson is SO cute, isn't he?

-stephanie- said...

such fun not me's. laughed at the penguin and Mexican comments

Kelli @ Gohn Crazy said...

I don't blame you a bit. I wished my daughter's preschool teacher a very enjoyable week off this morning. I don't know how you teachers do it. :)

But I love the turkey hunting idea! Genius!! And "Mexicans" *LOL* Hilarious!

CityMom, CountryMom said...

I am so out of it. Everyone's referencing the Twilight movie and book! Anyway, good to stop by, have a great Thanksgiving!

Amy McMean a.k.a McSunshine said...

WOW 3 times. I was wondering how you liked the movie. You were so pumped up for it. I'm glad it was good and not a let down like most movies based on a book seem to be.

Ashley Griffin said...

Pleasant Drive said...

That is a great idea to tell your students hunters are looking for them! You're so creative!

He And Me + 3 said...

What will Blake think of the new crush? LOl He is a hottie! I love the hallway trick. Whatever keeps them quiet:)

Heather Bug said...

You are so much fun!!!

Liz said...

Those kids are so cute!! I think you have the "funnest" job ever (best word I could think of)

avtcoach said...

Three times!! Wow! I'm impressed and you must have loved the movie! I didn't see it yet and was unsure if the movie could meet my expectations. I did plan to read the books again!
Have a great holiday, you are so deserving. I wish I could be a fly on the wall watching you teach those cuties. I can tell you are a great teacher!!!

Smiling Shelly said...

Wow! Three times??? I guess you liked it??

Sorry your phone is not working...hope you're right - 3x IS the charm.

Don't worry about the bank card. It's safe.

Those are some of the cutest turkeys I've ever seen.

Rachel said...

Funny about the kids and all the cute stuff they did this week (or DIDN'T do!)

Oh yeah... that debit card thing sucks, huh?

Great Not Me's!

Katie@ThisCrazyLife said...

I have yet to jump on the twilight bandwagon, but I think you have me convinced. I'm going to Wally World tomorrow to buy it!

Elaine said...

Your kids are way too stinkin cute. Loved the little hats.. You are great. Have a blessed week.

Casey's trio said...

Angela said...

Too funny about the kids calling the Indians - Mexicans!! Ha! Reminds of a while ago when I was teaching my son he is mulatto (half blk/half white if you didn't know - not many do!) and after talking about johnny appleseed and the indians he was having a conversation and said he was MUCHACO! I cracked up! Out of the mouths of babes!!

"J" said...

The kids are sooooooooooooo CUTE in their camo!!!! I love the turkey hats!!!!

When you said be very very quite it made me think back to that carton with Elmer Fudd
