Not Me! Monday

I just love Not Me! Mondays. I get to confess (which is supposedly good for the soul, right?) all the things I so DID NOT do this past week. You can help your soul feel better too by joining in at MckMama's Not Me Monday--come on, you must have something you want to confess (or not!)

So here is what how my week went.....

I DID NOT eat my son's candy bar and later look mystified when we could not find it in the refrigerator. I so would not eat chocolate, especially if was not mine to begin with. Would You??

I do not know who would do laundry using shampoo instead of laundry detergent just because they didn't feel like going to the store. But I did not do that. Seriously.

I cringe at the thought of a mother bribing her children to actually watch TV (if even for a half hour) just so she could do some work on her computer. Thank Goodness there are no candy bars in our house (anymore) to bribe my children with. I have heard of such a thing, but really.... I would NEVER consider it!

I did not try to make my daughter feel guilty about going out on a lake with her friend and her family just because I am a silly nervous wreck of a mother and thought of 50 million things that could happen to my daughter out on that dastardly lake. ( And, I'm just saying, that even if I were to try that I'm quite sure it would not have worked. Quite sure. Silly Lake.)

Did our dogs get out and roam neighbors' backyards and inspect said neighbors' garbage cans last week? I should say not! I always remember to latch our gates. Always.

And how did a tank top of my daughter's, that I have a problem with for several reasons, end up missing from the laundry pile? I do not know. Maybe the lake swallowed it. I don't know.

Finally, I must say that I did not ever think of mixing some regular milk with the remaining soy milk left in the container, and giving said container to my daughter to pour on her cereal, while professing that yes, it was all soy milk.

But it was me who finally got herself to the store last week and promptly bought a candy bar, laundry detergent, dog food and soy milk.

Still do not know anything about that missing tank top though. Really.

I just love the tank top one! I can only imagine the problems you had with it and know I would have done the same!

And shampoo for the laundry - wow! Hilarious!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I love your Not Me Monday. I can't tell you where the tank top is but do you know where a pair of super skinny jeans are that my step-daughter had had come up missing? You know the ones that she could hardly breath in and showed her butt crack? She can't find them, and I do not know where they are!!

I've got to ask too how did the shampoo work? I would have never thought of that-seriously.

Yea that tank top was just not meant for a 12 year old, kwim? But iyt is a shame it mysteriously disappeared and all. Shucks.

Thanks! I had fun doing it. Thanks for the visit too!

Irene said...

LOL! No, I don't have a clue about where the skinny jeans could be. Why do they make these things that look so painful to wear, yet young girls insist on wearing them, and stress us moms out so much???

Hey--maybe the jeans are at the bottom of the lake too. Just a thought. (evil grin)!
