Not Me Monday!


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.

Dear people reading my blog, I'm sorry I haven't done a "not me" post in awhile. It is certainly not because I've had no lack of content! What can I say...life doesn't seem to be slowing down.

I do not let my kids watch t.v. all day when they are sick. I do not justify it in my head as "the right thing to do" because it's helping them rest when they're awake. I'm sure there are more beneficial activities for them to do when they're sick, but this is by far the easiest.

The couch in our den doesn't perpetually have laundry on it. As soon as I put all the clothes away, it doesn't show up again in a matter of hours.

I did not completely unravel a pair of longies (wool diaper cover pants) I was working on when it was 3/4 done, because there were too many things I didn't like about them. I would not waste my time like that, and I always catch my mistakes in time.

I have not completely gotten addicted to coffee again, after so carefully weaning myself off it a few years ago. I do not get a headache if I by 9am if I haven't had one yet. It didn't just start with me saying "I haven't had one in awhile, I'm sure one wouldn't hurt" a few days in a row.

I have my eyes on all my children at all times, and never walk into the room to find that they have taken out every single piece to every single board game, and are swimming in a big pile of pieces. That would simply be impossible.

I have not been watching the Olympics when there are other things I should be doing like preparing for Nerdy Gerdy Boutique opening in 2 weeks (want to peek into the store windows and see what's coming together?), doing dishes, or even sleeping. Nope, not me!

I did not just put a plug for my new store in this Not Me Monday post. I mean, that would be abusing some sort of power or something, right?

I better go, the coffee I'm not having, is not ready.

I let my girls eat/ watch/ do pretty much anything they want when they are sick.

Enjoy the coffee you aren't having! I'm on my 2nd pot :)

Happy Monday!

I never leave my kids unattended with board games either. That would be silly and asking for a huge mess. :)

NEVER!
