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. This is not a tradition of mine yet, but, again, I feel I have some things to confess.
For starters, my second daughter’s first birthday is on Thursday and we are going to have a little party, and, I am not kidding, I have not even decided which day the party is going to be on yet. Most mothers have these things planned out to the nth degree, but Not Me! One would think that I would at least have a day picked out or a guest list put together or a menu planned out, but not me. One might even think that I would have at least thought about what we are going to get her for a gift, but nope, not me. Argh! This needs to get done…I am sure I will do it today. Positively positive.
While thinking of how on top of things I am, I was also thinking about what a good friend I am. One of my bff’s had a baby on February 5 and I was thinking of how nice it was of me to bring her (and her other two kids and husband) dinner and a gift for the baby. As most people do these things within a week or two after the baby is born, I was realizing how great of a friend I am that I have been so on top of this now almost a month a later. NOT!
Well, as always, I absolutely did not spend two full days in my pj’s over the weekend. I would never do that. I would at least cook some sort of dinner for my kids and not make things like egg sandwiches or bagels for dinner. Nope, not me! We eat way more nutritious than that, of course. I also did not stay up until 2:30am on Friday night playing Settler’s of Catan with some friends. I would never do something dumb like that because my kids get up at 7:00 and I need much more sleep that 4 ½ hours. Much much more.
And my last confession. While playing on the floor in my daughter’s room this last weekend, I did not find a rather large fuzz ball on the floor made up of carpet fibers, dust, and several random hairs. I vacuum way too much for stuff like that to happen. Not only did I not find this fuzz ball, but I did not just take it and shove it under the changing table instead of throwing it in the garbage. I would never ever do that.
