Not Me! Monday First Edition

There are so many competing reasons on why I started this blog, but this post in particular is one of the more fun ones. Started by, I don't know, a long time ago, it gives me a chance to let you know what I Definitely Did Not Do this past week.

I, for one, did not tell my children that if they let me take a nap I would take them to the park. I never bargain with my children since that breaks all sorts of parenting rules, and I would Never Ever nap on the couch while my children play in the toy room. Nope, Not Me!

I did not consider this enough appropriate exercise for the day/week/month.
I am diligent about exercising every day, right?

I did not avoid my husband for several days in hopes of postponing and possibly avoiding completely the fight that had been building up. Nope, we always sit down and communicate any and all issues as soon as they arise for the health of our marriage.

There is no way that I would lose my patience at work with my fellow beloved co-workers and then very huffily tell my boss "I have absolutely no idea" when he asked me a very simple question. Nope, not me! I am always respectful and loving in all my workplace relationships.

I also did not hide in my office later on in the day when I was tired and trying to avoid any more questions. I always face my responsibilities and am cheerful and helpful at all times.

There is no way that I would ever sit in my car in the driveway for 30 minutes just reading my iPhone because this was in my back seat.
Nope, Not Me! I am always sure to get my things done every day and don't let my daughter sleep in the car just for the sake of some quiet me time.

And I would never actually miss my parents when they were gone for the ENTIRE last week. Nope, I'm not dependant on them for a drink, dinner, or a sounding board several times a week. I can totally do this whole Mom/Wife thing all by myself.

What about you? Anything that you didn't do this week that you need to get off your chest? Let me know!
