Not Me Monday - 6th edition

It's (not) that time again. It never sneaks up on me. I'm always near the top of the Mr. Linky list of participants in MckMama's Not Me Monday Carnival. Oh wait. I AM near the top this week. Multi-tasking** pays off once again!

Here are some more things I didn't do:

* I did not forget to send my own mother a birthday card and instead use this post to wish her a happy birthday and happy anniversary. (She and Paul were married one year ago yesterday.)
Sorry Mom! Hope you guys had a great day!

* I did not ask my husband to read a 378 page book about parenting and marriage as his Christmas present to me this year.

* I didn't take it one step further and ask him to discuss each chapter with me when he finished it.

* I did not go on vacation (without the kids) even though my daughter hadn't ever gone without nursing at least 2x a day for her whole life.

* I didn't take a breast pump along on our camping trip so I could still nurse my 2 year old when we got home because I wasn't ready to give up breastfeeding.

* It did not snow here almost all day on Sunday with winds gusting often to 40+ miles per hour.

* I did not still do an outdoor photo shoot Sunday afternoon.

* We did not eat half a loaf of pumpkin bread Sunday night that we were suppose to save for Julia's school today.

* I did not ignore all the reviews that said to go ahead and make 3 loaves at one time because the recipe is really that good. Which leads to....

** I am not speed baking another loaf as I type this despite the fact that kitchen timer says it won't be done in time to get to school at 10:15.

* We don't have a mouse problem in our house.

* I didn't find out about this problem in the middle of a meeting with our bosses when Brian admitted that Sharon had seen two mice while we were on vacation. (The topic of problems with the house had come up and they were giving us a heads up that when the temps drop the mice move in.)

* I am not considering letting a stray cat into our home in hopes that it will catch all the mice.

* I did not purposely keep my grocery cart behind me in the check out line on Saturday in order to keep some space between me and the lady behind me who was crowding my personal space. I did not have to stand my ground as she pushed my cart into my leg. I did not take my sweet time putting my groceries in the cart just to annoy her.

* Brian and I didn't laugh our heads off when we heard Julia call out "Help Me Down!" from her room.

* I did not use my elbows to protect my the kid's coloring book so Julia couldn't scribble on my page. Nope not me. How stupid would that be? It's just a coloring book. Who cares if there's black scribbles all over the perfect Piglet I just colored.

* I don't take Sam's Little People and create silly scenarios while we play just to see what kind of reaction I'll get out of him. Big Bird did not drive the police car to the scene of a car accident and haul away the car that caused the accident. The sheep did not order an ice cream cone at the ice cream shop. The pig didn't drive the mail truck through the drive thru.

  1. So, did the pumpkin bread get done in time? Or did you keep it and eat more?

    I HATE mice. I am TERRIFIED of them, so you have my pity.

    Yes, I did return home to get my shoes the other day. If I'd gone a little further, I wouldn't have tho.
