Not Me Monday

It is time for Not Me Monday. I haven't done this in a while so here are a few things I haven't done over the past few weeks. If you want to read other people's "Not Me" post head over to MckMama's blog to read what many other people didn't do this week.

This past Saturday I did not lay on the couch watching tv (old and very stupid movies) with my husband for 6 hours while Isabelle ran free around the house. I would never do that because we had so many other things to do that day. Such as mowing the lawn.

I did not suggest to my son that he mow the yard for mother's day yesterday. He did not suggest that I call a lawn service. I did not call and leave a message on his voice mail while sitting in the car with him requesting that "Jake's lawn service" come and mow. He did not later that afternoon tell me that he heard from our lawn service and they have had to shut down because of the poor economy. I am not wondering what we have done wrong with that boy.

I did not completely abandon my family for a week while preparing for and holding our church sale. We did not completely blow the budget eating out every night that week. I did not leave my family with an empty pantry and fridge while I was gone all week. I would have prepared for that busy week and had all my meals in the freezer. I take good care of my family.

I did not eat sugary foods every day of the sale and buy myself caribou drinks. I am on a serious diet to help me feel better and would have more will power than to eat and drink junk when I need the most energy.

I did not tell my boss the Wednesday before the sale that I needed the following Tuesday off because I was scheduling my post church sale break down for that day. Nope I am totally on top of my life and never have break downs. I did not in fact have that break down later that day, Wednesday, and instead enjoy a day off to clean my house after a week of neglect.

During that week of neglect Isabelle did not smear poop on the toilet seat in the bathroom one night and I did not just ignore it and sit on it for 3 days before I got around to cleaning it. No way would I ever sit on dried poop. That is just gross.

I am glad I didn't do any of those things. Hope you haven't done anything like that this week either.


  1. LOL OK, the Lawn Service - that is classic - and I am SO going to remember that one! You had me rolling...

    And then the poopy seat... That is HILARIOUS! Oh the wonderful world of Motherhood and all of the other things that make up our life.

  2. You don't know me, but I randomly picked your blog to read your Not Me Monday post this morning. I am trying to inconspicuously read blogs while I'm at work, but you're making it very difficult since I kept laughing out loud!

  3. lol, jake makes me laugh! that sounds so much like something he would do...i wonder why he didn't ;)
