Not Me Monday 4th Edition

The inspiration for this post - McKMama. It is an inspiring, honest blog with pictures of some of the cutest kiddos I have ever seen (beside my own =)

I did not read the book for my book club within 12 hours of getting the book. I also did not neglect any housework while reading my book.

I did not let my kiddos watch 3 hours of mindless Disney TV so I could read blogs posts from Not Me Monday last week.

I did not skip taking my 6 year old to karate because I could not find her karate gear in the piles of clothes on my bedroom floor.

I did not spend the hour before my Tupperware party in a cleaning frenzy because I waited until then to clean. Including my kiddos' bedroom. I did not tell the kiddos not to open their closet while their friends were here during the party to play.

I did not forget to buy pull-ups and have to wake up and change my 4 year old to put one on him. I also did not put a towel over the wet spot and let my 6 year old continuing sleeping in the peed on bed, so I would not have to change the sheets late at night and share my bed with both children, who didn't end up in my bed anyway causing my husband to sleep on the couch.

I did not buy the more expensive pair of jeans I tried on just because they had a tummy flattening panel in them.

I did not let my 6 year old go to the grocery store wearing her new footy pajamas.

I did not eat a pint of Dove Unconditional Chocolate ice cream in one setting.

What about you? What didn't you do??

I so did not just spend an afternoon catching up on Grey's and Brothers&Sisters instead of doing homework. I sure as heck did not forget to dust this weekend either. Oh well another weekend will come soon.

LOVE your "not me's"! And I don't need to know the name of that obviously captivating book and those obviously fabulous jeans. Nope, not me. (I'll check your blog later for updates).


I am not sure how it started. I guess maybe it was a genuine illness at first. Then the teenager babysat a little late on a Saturday night. ...
