not me monday

I do have so much going on. I could blog about it. But I need to process some of my thoughts a tab more...Also, I was up the majority of the night with a poor, nauseated little boy who managed to vomit on every bed and couch in the house. Consequently, my brain is mush and I am elbows deep in laundry. So, instead, I am following a fabulous woman's lead and having a 'Not Me Monday".

When making cookies with my little ones and watching them like a hawk to make sure they don't scarf down the batter from the bowl, I never turn my back to them and shove a big scoop into my own mouth when they aren't looking. Not me!!!!

I never get excited for Thursdays for the simple fact that the store flyers all come in the local paper that day, especially since I am completely against all the waste, consumerism and junk that these flyers promote. Not me.

I never ignore my kid's scream of angry indignance aimed at eachother while torn between wanting it to stop and wishing they would just figure it out themselves. Not me.

I never tell Olivia that the Abba CD must be at home while hiding it under my thigh on the carseat because I can't bear to hear 'Nina Pretty Ballerina' even just 'one more time' today. Not me.

I never, ever drop trou and pee in the backyard rather than run into the house. I especially don't enjoy the thrill it gives me to have the fresh air on my large white hiney. Definitely not me.

Okay, now that my grandmother is horrified that I didn't admit that I urinate outside, I think I'll try to save a few more things that I so do NOT do for another time. What don't you do?
