Not Me! Monday #1



So, Not Me! Monday is this fun little thing MckMama over at My Charming Kids has got going.. Click on the button above to check out what she did NOT do this week (wink, wink) and the "not doings" of others.. In the meantime, keep reading for mine!

I did NOT get so distracted last week that I could not possibly get to the first "Not Me! Monday" of the New Year. I would certainly never blow off something I had been looking forward to that much.

I did NOT waste a ton of time on the computer this week following and catching up on other people's blogs. If I HAD been so inclined as to do that, I would certainly NOT have spent 75% of that time looking at the blogs of single ventricle heart babies born around the time Seth was. Because, really, am I that BIG of a glutton for punishment? I think NOT.

I also would NOT have been wasting above said time when I should have been bill-paying and thus would not currently be looking at late charges. (Because I AM more frugal than that and I am not that stupid.. or distracted.).

I did NOT spend an unusual amount of time crying this week because I most certainly know better than to let myself get all over-tired and emotional. (Mind you, if I HAD spent a bunch of time crying, I certainly have a decent reason).

I did NOT continue to put off grocery shopping resulting in weird meals and more eating out. I would certainly not make a habit out of doing that to my family.

This IS quite cathartic.. I bet I could go on & on but I"m thinking I should end this with:

I did NOT stay up way past midnight, knowing I had to work the next morning just so I could get my Not Me! Monday post written THIS week!! (And for those of you keeping tabs, I most certainly have NOT been playing the "3 months ago right now" game with myself most of the day today.. because that would be, well, pretty darn "human"!).
