Not Me Monday 22nd Edition

I did not get raspberry jelly chocolates at the store knowing that no one else likes them at my house, so I could eat them all.

I did not eat a serving of mini chocolate eclairs for breakfast (a serving size is 6, BTW).

I did not eat three donuts on Saturday morning, even though they are half the size of regular donuts, so I justified it by telling myself that each time I was eating one.

I did not eat a wasabi and soy sauce almond and tell my husband that I would rather eat toe jam than eat one of them again.

I did not eat more potatoes than chocolate at our Chocolate Challenge LIFE Nite at church last night.

I was not a half hour late for LIFE Nite last night because I was still napping with Noah.

I did not just write a Not Me post that consisted of mostly food related items.

So, check out the blog that birthed the Not Me Monday and 4 charming kiddos and visit my friend, Carlton's blog. He will appreciate the visitors =)

Not Me Monday The Legal Edition

Monday used to be a day I dreaded, now I do not dread Mondays, because I love Not Me Monday! Read mine and then head over to MckMama's where it all began. And do not forget to check out, Carlton's blog, too!

I did not send Rick out the morning of Valentine's Day to get the kiddos' cards and candy.

I did not only fill their hearts part of the way so I would have some mini Reese's Peanut Butter cups left over for myself.

I did not take the kiddos out three times for ice cream last week.

I did not even not realize that Kari and Noah had climbed into bed with us until we woke up in the morning on Sunday.

I did not let Kari play outside in her flip flops even though it was too cold for flip flops last week.

I did not wait to hear crying when I heard what sounded like someone falling down the stairs before I went to investigate. When no one was crying I did not continue what I was doing. *Don't worry - everyone was okay, including Devin's laptop. Yes, it was 17 year old that fell down the stairs*

I did not wear the same red sweater three times this week in honor of celebrating Valentine's Day.

I did not eat a piece of cake and a cupcake yesterday before lunch.

I did not give Noah a piece of Kari's gum even though she told him he couldn't have any more of her gum.

I did not let Devin go to a friend's house on Saturday while Rick was at work even though he told her she could not go.

I did not enjoy making up with Rick after I told him I let Devin go against his wishes.

I did not start kissing Rick to distract him from being mad at me.

Nope, not me! What didn't you do??

Not Me Monday 20th Edition

You know what today is...No, not Manic Monday! It's Not Me Monday and after you finish my fabulous post, check out MckMama's blog where it all began.

I did not eat a pint of ice cream on Saturday night

I did not throw out what my mom made for dinner on Monday on Saturday because no one really ate it then and I did not want it in the fridge

I did not listen to the same CD on repeat all week long whenever I got the chance

I did not put headphones on and listen to the same CD while I was on the computer and sing loudly while getting strange looks from my 14 year old

I did not feed my kiddos chicken biscuits for breakfast and chicken nuggets for lunch

I was not a bit sad when my mom sewed my 4 year old’s blankie back together. I did not totally love that it was falling apart

I did not let my dad take Rick to the airport on Friday at 5 AM so I could sleep

I did not make enough Shepherd’s Pie ingredients to fill 2 9X13 dishes thinking my family would eat it in one setting to have an entire dish of it still in the fridge

I have not been warming it up for the kiddos’ lunches every day since then and still have a dish of it left

I did not tell my husband that he was perpetuating teenage drama this weekend by acting like the teenagers he was saying were being dramatic

I did not bake chocolate chips for my ministry display in the church kitchen during the morning service yesterday

I did not justify it because, since our church is small, I could still hear the sermon in the kitchen

I did not use the cookies to try to bribe the judge to win a gift card for the best ministry display

I did not say the word ass in front of our worship leader, youth leader and pastor on Saturday night while I was at the church setting up my ministry displays

I was not referring to an old blog post about my husband when I said the above mentioned word

Nope, not me! What did you not do this week? Check out my friend, Carlton's blog, too!

Not Me Monday 19th Edition

To make up for my lame post last week, this one with be chock full of Not Me bits. Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy....

I did not tell my 4 yr. old son he smelled like butt and needed a bath to hear him sing the following song in the bathtub.."My mom gave me a sponge and some soap and now I smell good instead of like butt!"

I did not allow my daughter to eat raw cookie dough for snack....twice.

I did not get frustrated when my mom sent cake mix to make cupcakes and the ingredients to make homemade icing with my daughter and then proceed to have a great time baking with her.

I did not say hell twice in a conversation I had with my close friend and pastor's wife.

I was not only relaying a story told to me by one of the elderly ladies in our church.

I was not thankful when the little boy I babysit mom's called to say he was not coming today, so I could sleep in.

I did not sleep in until 9:50 AM today even though my 4 yr. old was up at 8:30 AM.

I did not take my shoes off at church and serve in the nursery in just my socks.

I did not set aside $20 to get my haircut and then spend it on gas for the car and pizza for Friday's dinner.

I did not laugh really hard while my 4 yr. old played the Rayman's Raving Rabbids 2 game where you throw the paper balls at the teacher's back and then get hit in the head with a crayon if he catches you.

Nope not me!

Check out where the Not Me Monday carnival started - MckMama's blog - and check out my friend, Carlton's blog , too!


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. ...
