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.

I have NOT put off finishing up my Christmas shopping until the week of Christmas.  And now the kids are out of school and I have 3 days and no idea how I am going to finish.  Hoping the stores have “extended” store hours this week!

I did NOT completely crash yesterday after having Nate’s family over for Christmas dinner on Saturday.  I would never totally space out and basically need a day in bed after planning and hosting a dinner for 10 adults and 8 kids.  And I did NOT leave the dishes from the dinner until last night before I washed them.  Besides just being gross, it makes your job twice as hard when trying to scrub dried broccoli off of a bowl!

I did NOT just say to my children “The next person that asks me for a piece of candy is going to get their fingers chopped off!!!”  Really, I find much better ways to explain to my kids that candy at 9 am is just not healthy and that mom is a little stressed and the same question asked 24 times in 6 minutes might cause her to lose what last bit of sanity she has left.  I would NEVER just shout out something that would make my kids run and hide in the other room!

Happy Monday!

  1. Heather, I’m sure your family dinner was lovely! Next time, buy a new trash can, fill it with soapy water, and throw all your dishes in it until later. That way you can enjoy your guests and not worry about cleaning until later…
