Not Me! Monday

Oh, MckMama, how is it that you have me coming back week after week, confessing denying all of my weekly faults. I must admit that I find it refreshing to go through my week knowing that I have Mondays to look forward to, and that it is just that much easier to tolerate the pitfalls of life knowing that I can confess deny them all to you out there in blogger-land.

This week, I definitely did not begin my Not Me! Monday list on Wednesday... that would be a whole 5 days early. I did not begin my list early because I knew that I would not be able to post on Monday and it had already been a doosey of a week. I was (am) not able to post on Monday because I did not surprise my brother with a visit over the weekend. Surprise Kev!

I would never subject my two beautiful children to traveling 24 hours in their car seats so we could tag along on a weekend getaway to visit my brother. I do not have two of the most patient, understanding kids in the world who did wonderful traveling for that far. I am not the luckiest mom in the world!

I did not inadvertently flood my basement with spaghetti-laced, dirty dish water. I would never utter several explicit words under my breath after this happened, then turn to be certain that my 2-year-old was not in the room. He does not repeat just about anything these days, so I was not relieved to find him in the other room playing. I should not, could not, would not turn to my husband while cleaning up the mess and say, "I'm going to title my blog post "What I Learned Today." I never blog in my head as I go throughout the day. It does not make everyday life a little bit easier to know that I can complain write about my not-so-pretty moments and get a little bit of enjoyment out of them. I do not have the best husband in the world who is able to fix anything in our house just like an expert. Thanks Husband!

What have you not done this week?
