Not Me Monday

In reading a couple of my "daily blog fixes", I came across a blog carnival that sounded fun, interesting, and freeing.

Welcome to Not Me Monday, where you will find a list of things I most certainly did not do in the past week or so (wink, wink)! Hey - this might be cheaper than therapy!

I did not spend far too much money this weekend on things I didn't necessarily need, but were far too good of a deal to pass up.

I did not bribe MH with everything under the sun to get her to let me administer her Flonase.

I did not purchase any more Hanukkah gifts for MH, when she so clearly has enough gifts for the next three Hanukkahs.

I did not tell my non-stop chatterbox (at 4:00AM this morning) that she could watch Madagascar in my bed but she was not allowed to talk to me.

When she did talk to me, I did not laugh to myself because even at that early hour she is so darned adorable.

I did not experience so much stress from a situation that I was brought to tears and beginning to question my own integrity, ethics, and morals.

I did not eat far too much chocolate out of MH's ever-ready Halloween pumpkin.

I did not indulge in one too many eggnog lattes from Starbucks or caramel lattes from DD.

I did not cancel physical therapy in order to spend some quality time with MH.

I did not brew a pot of coffee at 4:30AM today when it became apparent that morning had begun in our household.

I did not manage to score some hilarious video footage of the MH that I will most likely use as blog fodder sometime this week.

I did not waste enjoy hours of time playing word games on Facebook.

I did not decide that this post probably isn't very exciting, and that for next week's Not Me Monday, I will probably keep track of things that would be more fun and/or interesting for others to read about. Nope, not me!

What didn't you do this week?

I love your stories about MH - she is so cute in her pics, I can only imagine how adorable she is in person!! If she ever wants to come over and talk to Jack at 4 in the morning she is welcome...lord knows we are up too!!

Oh...and we haven't gone crazy playing word games on facebook either (I honestly don't even like facebook all that much)

I love reading Not Me posts but I'm so old and forgetful that I never remember to do them myself. :(

Krystyn said...

Good job! This one is so fun!

4:30??? I've tried to convince Izzy that she can't wake up until it is light outside. No such luck!

I hope you get a nap today.

amanda said...
