Not Me! Monday!

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to MyCharmingKids; her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.  Click here

Not me!  I don't know about you but I don't have a large family and here's some ways to know if you do or not...

Not me!  The combined mileage on my cars is 1,000,000 miles (and I haven’t left my suburb in seven years).

Not me!  No one invites us over for Sunday dinner (unless it’s for a fast).

Not me!  I have a laundromat in my basement (it’s open all night and I still can’t find an empty machine).

Not me!  Holidays are always at my house (Santa has to use a “wide load” sleigh and 16 reindeer to haul everything down to me).

Not me!  My monthly grocery store receipt is 4 figures (the commodities market rallies every time I go shopping).

Not me!  I am happy to get my oldest daughter's hand-me-downs.

Not me !  As long as I book it by the fourth of July, I am guaranteed a reserved table at my favorite restaurant for my whole family for Valentine’s Day.

Not me!  I use a whole box of oatmeal to make breakfast (and that’s for the younger kids and newborns).

Not me !  My driveway looks like a used car lot (my husband, Bob, wears a plaid sport coat and has to check with his manager before handing me the keys).

  Not Me’s!

I *only have four kids, but I can relate.

My mom has 4 kids, 3 sons-in-law, 1 daughter-in-law and 12 grandkids. We have talked about the used car lot in her yard when we're all there at the same time. It's total chaos, but I wouldn't want it any other way!
