Showers and Boogers

It is time once again to join MckMama in her blog carnival of Not Me! Monday.

Okay, just a little disclosure before I get started this week. I really am a clean person and I really am not nasty like I'm going to portray myself today. It's all about honesty though right?
I was totally on the ball and showered on Saturday and Sunday this weekend. So, it's Not Me! who hasn't had a shower since Friday....*I'm a total skeez today*. Let me give you the reason why. Saturday was a laid back day, didn't do much of anything that would have gotten me dirty, so I decided I would shower Sunday morning. Well, hum, it was a rough night with Isabel. She's all snotted up so she isn't sleeping well. Sunday morning came and I got up, but then as soon as Daddy rolled out of bed, I crashed on the couch for a few more hours.

By the time I got up, Uncle Jimmy had already arrived to help Ross do plumbing this weekend and the water was already shut off. By the time they had water back on, I was busy cooking dinner and I just put my shower off until bedtime. Bedtime for the girls came and I go to start their bathes. No hot water. Hubby checks into it and discovers that somehow the pilot light on the water heater had gone out. He gets it re-lit, but we'll have to wait for the water to heat up. No biggie, the girls can have a bath in the morning. And I'll just take my shower later once the water heats up. Somehow during all this, we end up getting no water out of the faucet at all. Something is wrong with the switch on the pressure tank, so Ross will have to go to the lumber yard Monday morning to get some parts.

So, it is absolutely Not ME! who hasn't had a shower since Friday!

 I would never ever pick my kids boogers without having a tissue close at hand and I would never just wipe it off my finger onto the carpet since I need to vacuum today and we're getting new carpet installed next week anyway, Not Me!

I forewarned you that it was nasty this week!

Oh, and just so you know, the water is now fixed thanks to Uncle Jimmy and Ross and as soon as the dishwasher starts it's drying cylce, my nastiness is hitting the shower!  

Oops! I was just proofreading and found several typo's. Sorry to those of you that have already read it. I've now showered and the girls are bathed. Ross is still a little stinky though!

Oh, you are so funny! I hate when we have water problems. It just messes everything up.

Hey don't have to justify yourself on the showering thing! Sometimes it just happens! hee hee

And if there is a Mom out there who HASN'T picked her kid's booger without a kleenex I'll be amazed!

I have to admit... this weekend, I also went without a shower (well, technically I took one Sunday afternoon with the baby... but I didn't wash my hair, so it doesn't really count)... AND we've been having a post-nasal drip problem in our house! I feel ya!
