not me! monday

time for not me! monday again. if you haven't been keeping up with stellan and the whole mckfamily, they are on week 3 of being in the PICU for his SVT. so instead of hopping over to mckmama's blog to read other not me! monday posts, please go visit her blog and lift little stellan in your prayers.


this week i have definitely NOT still been glued to my computer checking mckmama's blog and twitter for updates on stellan. and i have NOT been constantly reminded by samantha to pray for stellan.

and after looking at all the pictures in stellan's name gallery one day, i did NOT accidentally call ryan "stellan."

after moving tons of ebay stuff to our new storage unit (YEA!) we did NOT vacuum our living room for the first time in about 2 months (not kidding people). and ben has NOT vacuumed every day since then because he got a new vacuum. and you know how boys like to try out something new...

and when my inlaws came over yesterday, ben did NOT try to totally sell them on the new vacuum by pretty much doing an infomercial. and then when he asked them if they'd like to try it out, i did NOT get my living room vacuumed again.

i did NOT find samantha in the fridge with her head upside down drinking directly from the spigot on our water jug/container/thingy.

we did NOT avoid a $50 maintenance fee when we had stuff too close to the furnace in our utility room. and we did NOT avoid said fee because the maintenance man that came over to change our furnace filter was NOT an old friend of ben's from school. when he opened the door to the utility room ben did not say, "oh! don't look in here for a minute," and then did NOT move everything very quickly!


what have you NOT done this week?

Too funny! I love my new Roomba Vacuum. I sit on the couch on the computer while it vacuums...oh gosh, I just admitted I was lazt. Oh well:)

wv: dropoly--a severe medical condition in which everything you pick up suddenly drops. Mild cases of this condition are called "the dropsies."

Attention, Ben: I would be very interested in learning more about your new vacuum. Feel free to come to our house and demonstrate ANY day! :)

Seriously, though - what kind did you get? Ours in on the way out, I think...

ben and erin said...

alicia, i didn't read that as being lazy... i thought of it as multitasking!

lol, heather. dropoly... in my experiences pregnancy has brought out the severity of dropoly in me.

mary, he got a dyson ball. he bought it to sell on ebay, but after using it, i think it will take up residence here. feel free to come over and try it out in my house while i'm gone to MN:-)

Ben should sell his vacuuming services if he likes it that much! I bet little old ladies would love to have Ben come and vacuum!

Haven't been busy, have you? I'd have done anything to avoid the fee too!
You like the Dyson? And what is this about MN?

Alright I am totally completely NOT jealous of your Dyson!! I have NOT been wanting one since well forever.

these are great! I love that you called ryan stellan

I must admit that Greg loves to vacuum period (he's weird, I know) so I am wondering what its going to be like when we get the new vacuum that we registered for (which was already purchased). My house will probably be vacuumed every single day like yours!

Happy Not Me! Monday. You are lucky that you have a man in the house that likes to play with any kind of new toy....my hubby would draw the line with testing out the vaccuum!
