Not Me! Monday

Welcome to my version of "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.


If you ask, I will deny every bit of the following.

I did not continue to get email notifications of blog comments when I had my giveaway. I did not get each and everyone of those notifications (over 300) on my phone. Despite my husband's urging, I did not refuse to take off the notification (for fear of missing a real comment on an older post). I did not find it easy to justify that- not me!

I tried a new Blueberry Orange muffin recipe on Saturday morning. That much is true. But, I did not eat so many of them that I was not hungry for lunch. Then, I did not eat another one at 3:30 because it was clearly too late for lunch. I do not let myself eat crazy like that- not me!

I was not jealous when my son (who had a belly-ache) was snuggling with Daddy last night. I did not shamefully ask him if he wanted me to rock him. I did not feel guilty when Daddy gave me a sad look. In no way, shape or form, is this a confession or apology to my husband. I do not still feel bad about interrupting a sweet moment- nope, not me!

I am not constantly thinking about the sweet reunion that will take place tonight when my sister's husband gets back from his deployment to the middle east. Just thinking about it does not stir my emotions. I am not emotional, ever - not me!

I am not considering doing something drastic to make an impression on the little boy that keeps forgetting to flush first thing in the morning. I am not upstairs when the 3 boys get up so I don't know which one is guilty. They all deny it. I am not oh-so-sick and extremely disgusted by the stench of it when I discover it later in the day. I would not welcome suggestions- oh not at all- because I am not afraid I might just "loose it" some day soon. I don't think so, not this mom- not me!

I have not over-done it lately. I did not take a 2 hour nap yesterday afternoon and then think about going to bed at 9 p.m. I went to bed at 10. That is not really early for me. I am not still exhausted today and this morning I did not think to myself, "I need to bathe in coffee." I cannot imagine - not me!

oh, the toilet flushing! i'm right there with ya.

Carmom said...

I'm right there with you on the toliet flushing. Please let me know if you find anything that works.

The kids are required to clean he toliet if I catch them not flushing. But I think they enjoy that task too much.

And I have also had moments where I have been jealous of Matt holding one of the kids. I totally understand that.

Have a great week!

Too funny about the flushing...my kids over flush. I could bathe in coffee too..yum...but I like iced coffee, Brrrrr!

Since its wasn't an admission or apology, then I would never say that I completely understand why, given the opportunity, you would want to hold and snuggle with the mohawked 3 year old that acts like he has gravel and gun powder running through his veins.

Great...now I am hungry for some blueberry orange muffins. Those sound so yummy! Not Me Mondays make my Mondays a lot more enjoyable!!!

Since my kids were homeschooled it was pretty easy to get them to flush. I just pulled them away from whatever they were doing to go and do it.

I would just have them clean the bathroom (use wipes instead of chemicals) every single time.

If you don't know who did it then have all three of them clean it since they probably don't know who did it themselves. You will have the cleanest bathroom in town, lol!

Girl I wish I that pee thing figured out, as I have three boys too! But, the best air freshener in the world comes from Bath and Body works- their room spray!
