I had kitchen, laundry and latte mishaps this week. It was quite a week and it is fun lauging at it all. Join in the “Not Me!” fun. Just leave me a comment about what you haven’t been doing or participate by posting a Not Me! post on your blog.
Here is my list of what did not happen and what I definitely I did not do:
The other night while I was trying to make dinner, I did not get so tired of trying to get the boys (my 3 and a neighborhood kid) to stop running in the house that I suggested they go outside in the backyard and play tag- in the dark. I would not send them out there knowing that the ground was saturated from all of the rain. I did not get silent satisfaction hearing my 7 year old saying that game of tag was wicked fun. And, I am NOT still trying to get the mud and grass stains out of their pants - not me!
I did not drive 20 minutes to Fred Meyer for 2 items just to go to the next door Starbucks only to find out that the Starbucks closed an hour earlier. That does not go along with my frugal goals so I would not do that – not me.
My husband did not say to me, “Did you, um, eat ice cream in the bathroom?” I did not leave an empty carton of ice cream in there. And, noooo, I did not finish the half scoop of peppermint ice cream in the bathroom one afternoon while the kids were playing. That would be hilarious, wouldn’t it? I didn’t do that- not me.
I am not behind on laundry. I did not have to let my 7 year-old son wear my athletic socks to school because I could not find him any clean socks. AND, a day or so later, I did not pull out my 7 year-old son’s dress socks and put them on my feet because the color of them went with my outfit better than my clean (white) socks. That did not happen in my house, not to me!
I did not put all of the Tupperware my daughter was playing with back in the cabinet without even looking at it. I did not discover the next day that one of those plastic cups was a sippy cup that she had been using- not me!
I did not have another latte mishap at Wal-mart this week. I let one of my grocery items slip out of my hand right above my iced latte. My latte did not spill all over my groceries and onto the floor. I did not wish I had my digital camera with me so I could take a picture or get a complete stranger to take a picture just so I could post on my blog. That would be weird or sad or something and that isn't me - not at all, not me!
Lastly, and definitely grossest of all, I did not take the lid of the crock pot out of the dishwasher, plop it on the crock pot and put it all up without looking at it. I did not assume that since my hubby washed the lid, he washed the crock pot. I was not absolutely disgusted when I discovered the messy crock pot tucked away nicely in the cabinet. And, as you can imagine, I am not still disgusted at all – not me!
