Not Me! Saturday Shopping


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.

Saturday was the first of my two kid-less Saturday’s this month. Let’s see how I didn’t spend my day.

I was not giving my husband the cold shoulder. Nope, Not Me! I never expect my husband to be a mind reader and apologize for his actions that have upset me.  I always deal with disagreement promptly and rationally. I would never drag out a “fight” from Monday night till Saturday.  I make sure to tell him when I have over reacted to a situation and ask for his forgiveness.

I did not leave the house for the day without telling him where I was going or what I was doing.  Nope, Not Me! I enjoy sleeping in with him on our kid-less Saturdays and would never get up, shower and dress without even waking him up. I know that we need these Saturday’s to reconnect, so I didn’t make plans for myself and not tell him. I always give my husband a detailed play by play of what my plans are for the day and include him as much as possible.

I did not go shopping after my morning photo shoot and spend an insane amount of money on three t-shirts and one skirt that I only kind of liked at Lane Bryant. Nope, Not Me! I am a bargain shopper and I would never spent almost $100 on just myself even after using an in-store special and a coupon.

I was not frustrated at Kohl’s while trying on capri’s and shorts.  I have not gained more weight than I realized and did not curse at the too tight to button clothing and then post a facebook status about my frustration.  Nope, Not Me!
I realize that a size is just a number and doesn’t define me, and would never let my frustration over clothing affect my mood.

How was your Saturday??

Not Me! The Vacation Edition


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 week is the vacation edition, following our 4 day vacation to watch the Nascar races in Phoenix.

I did not leave the laundry and packing till Wednesday night after church.  I am always well prepared and never have dirty laundry piled up with no clean clothes to pack for myself and my kids.  Not Me!

I would never stay up till after 1am to finish said packing.  I knew that we were leaving bright and early Thursday morning and needed a full night’s sleep so that I was well rested.  Not Me!

I always make sure that my husband has loaded everything into the van, and nothing has been forgotten.  I would never ask “where is the cooler” when we are already 25 minutes from home. Not Me!

I most certainly did not ask that he turn around to go get the cooler from the house, either.  I would never waste gas and time to make sure that he had carne asada. Not Me!

While on vacation I make sure that my kids have 3 hearty balanced meals.  I would not allow them to eat donuts two mornings in a row, eat only a cheese and bread sandwich for lunch, or buy them $5.00 snow cones that they drenched with “add your own” syrup. Not Me!

Even while camping on vacation, I make sure that my kids have showered and are clean at all times.  I do not consider using a package of baby wipes to clean their hands and feet appropriate hygiene for a 6 and 8 year old. Not Me!

How was your week?!?!

Not Me! Monday! TTC Style


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.

I have been reading MckMamma for a while.  This is actually my FIRST Not Me! post in all the time I have been reading her blog.  I thought I would make it a little TTC inspired for my first post. Ready, here we go:

This weekend I did not forget to take my temp and chart everything perfectly, even though it was a holiday weekend.  I certainly never ignore my temping alarm on my cell phone for a few extra hours of sleep.   NOT ME!

I would never allow either of my kids to run off with my thermometer, use it, then leave it under the couch.  NOT ME!

There is no way that I pulled out one of my cheap internet pregnancy tests to use with SMU (second morning urine) on CD27 even though I don’t think I ovulated this month.  I never waste money by POAS (peeing on a stick), NOT ME!
