.Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.
This week I did not forget, for the second time, to bring someone a meal. I have not totally pretended it didn't happen and have not neglected to call or acknowledge my disorganization in any way. I did not almost forget a second meal (our church is like a baby factory) and just buy frozen pizza's to at least fulfill the one commitment. Could it be time to stop signing up to bring meals for a while?
And speaking of priorities, I did not take Jake to meet with his Algebra teacher because I wasn't happy with his second quarter grade. The teacher did not ask Jake where he prioritized homework and Jake did not look at him with a blank stare as if he didn't understand the question. No way. I have taught Jake the importance of school work and he knows it is a top priority. He would never tell someone his friends were a higher priority than his school work.
This past week I did not realize that we have completely lost control of bedtime at our house. I did not realize that Isabelle was up past 10pm almost every night and I did nothing about it. I did not realize that we have stopped reading bedtime books to her and now just let her go to bed with a video off John's phone. Nope we would never do that. And I have never stood in judgement of my sister when I was visiting her and her children were running around well past bedtime and she wasn't taking control. I would never be that hypocritical.
On Saturday when the weather got above 40 degrees my spirits didn't lift and all memories of the month of below freezing weather was not lost simply because of one sunny, warm day. I am sick of living in this frozen tundra and wouldn't let one day cause me to think such positive thoughts about Minnesota.
