Not Me Monday

It's Monday! A day to air out our dirty laundry. A day to confess. It's refreshing and therapeutic!
Head on over to MckMama's blog to read more posts just like this one!

My Christmas tree is NOT still up.

It is NOT still up due to the fact that I haven't taken Christmas portraits of my kids yet. I am completely on the ball with this one!

My husband did not bring home a box of Dunkin Donuts on Friday. I most definitely did NOT eat four of them over the weekend. No. Way.

While grocery shopping with my kids on Friday, they did not talk nonstop, and call my name over and over again. This did not cause me to ask them if they could please stop talking for a few minutes so mommy could actually think.

I did NOT spend all but an hour in my pajamas on Saturday. I did not throw on clothes from 7-8 PM for a spontaneous visit from a friend.

I am not losing my mind quickly today, thanks to getting only 2 hours and 37 minutes of sleep. Or less. I am not desperately hoping for a nap.

Lexie's second lovey, a tiny Strawberry shortcake doll, did not get decapitated by the car door this morning. She is not insisting that I glue the already duct-taped doll's head back on, even though she has a perfectly acceptable backup doll.

I do not get horrible anxiety when driving on snow covered roads. This is not caused from a 14 hour drive through a blizzard, before we had kids! This is NOT going to be a long winter, considering we've had more snow in just one month than we've had over the past few years.


  1. No sleep? How come?? Thankfully I had more sleep last night than I did last Sunday night.

    Poor Strawberry Shortcake. I love that she has a back-up, but doesn't like it. Just like Buddy. LOL

    I hope your day improves!

  2. Too funny about Lexie's doll. Very Cute not me Monday post! Have a great week!

  3. Great Not Me's! When I was a kid my lovey got decapitated too....I was quite insistent that we take him to the hospital to get stitched up.

  4. I've never had to tell my kiddos to stop talking so I could think:) Never! Yum...donuts sounds so good...but not on my diet:)

  5. Yea...my tree is not still up either! Nope. I was not in my pj's from Friday night until yesterday late afternoon either. The only reason I put clothes on is because I was too lazy to cook and clean up the mess that I convinced hubby to take us out to dinner! Sad...I know.

  6. Love the "Not Me" these are so fun to read.

  7. We are desperately trying to get Graham to start talking, so even though it's deafening, try to enjoy it. ;P

  8. ok now my donuts are calling to me from the frige...lol

    our tree is still up...

    I get such snow anxiety every day in the car!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have had too many mishaps in the last 2 years. Its flippin stressful!!!!!


I love hearing from you! Let's chat!!!
