Not Me! Monday

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.

Oh where do I begin? I was sick this week, but I most certainly did NOT use that as an excuse to let anything slide.

I did NOT forget
FlyLady's advice to 'never take out more than you can put back in an hour' when I decided to rearrange my closet. Therefore it does NOT, six days later, appear that my closet threw up into my room. I am NOT afraid to walk in there in the dark for fear of tripping over a pile of clothes or other miscellaneous mess. My daughter did NOT ask how that much junk fit into my closet in the first place.

I did NOT let my son move all the lids to my pots and pans along with a large portion of my plastic bowls from the kitchen to the dining room table just because I was too tired to get up and stop him.

I did NOT remove the trash can from my kitchen and put it out the back door because I was sick to death of pulling a certain little boy out of the trash. NOPE, I am an awesome disciplinarian and he has learned at a mere 15 months that the trash is off limits.

I did NOT let my daughters beg and plead until I caved and agreed to take them to the elementary school "talent" show even though I was pretty sure I had already coughed up a large percentage of my lung tissue. I did NOT roll my eyes at the fact that I had to sit through 3.5 versions of little girls singing along with Miley Cyrus on "The Climb."

My Friday did NOT in any way involve:
7 kids of various ages
2 toads being held hostage in my back yard
1 Iguana in an aquarium on my kitchen counter after his stint at sharing time with a 5 year old daycare kid
2 little boys crying over who was allowed to 'take care of' the toads
1 seven year old girl who declared herself the boss of the toads and instigated all the crying and then joined them when she was told she couldn't keep the toads in a bucket in the Florida heat all weekend

I also did NOT have to pack up my family of five for a weekend at the beach while my husband showed up at the last second, threw some t-shirts and shorts in a bag and wanted to know when I would be ready. When we arrived at the beach, realized beach towels were not available in the condo, and The Husband looked at me and said, "You didn't pack the towels?" I most certainly did NOT have a mental breakdown!!

Finally, I do NOT have adorable pictures of my kids from the weekend, and I do NOT plan to get them uploaded and posted ASAP. I am NOT ignoring the bag of wet clothes and bathing suits so that I can blog and upload photos. NOPE, Not Me!

I love it. Didn't know you were so sick, though. Glad you got some time away at the beach this weekend. I hope it was relaxing and that you found some towels!

HUSBANDS! Can't live with 'em - can't live without 'em. :)
