Not Me! Monday

I know. I'm late.

Golly, some Not Me! members were writing about what they didn't do over 12 hours ago. Go check them out at MckMama's blog carnival. It's a hoot! And I'll be honest, time got away from me so I wasn't going to post today and it didn't even bother me. Not one bit!

But, the little ones are napping and I've put one load of laundry in today so my day is feeling pretty accomplished. Here it goes.

The other day when a friend asked me, "Are you tired this morning? You look a little sleepy." I most certainly didn't tell a little fib and agree with her that I was most definitely bushed. It didn't matter that I got 8 hours of sleep the night before and was feeling foot loose and fancy free that morning--until that moment--apparently I looked tired so I figured I'd give an explanation for my weary eyes.

And yesterday when this little girl:


begged me to repaint her fingernails--the ones that were painted by me the night before--because her "gloves rubbed off some of the polish" I did not tell her that partially rubbed off polish is the "in" thing these days so that I could get out of another fingernail fume session. I'm not sure if she believed me, being that my nails are never chipped and always polished up nice.

Then today after serving up seconds on Julia and Luke's lunch plates, then putting away all our lunch fixins, I did not bribe them to "be finished already" when they asked for even more food. The bribe had nothing to do with "whoever is finished, clear your spots, wash your face, and I'll give you an Oreo cookie for dessert."

And there you have it. Truthfulness revealed.

Now what is it that you haven't done lately?

I am not eating the most decadent oiliest, saltiest pumpkin seeds for lunch, hoping that somehow they can be considered a vegetable because they have the word 'pumpkin' in them...and I am not sitting here unshowered after a sweaty TKD workout this morning. And I am not going to wrap up this hott black screen printed t-shirt that husband picked out for himself yesterday at the outdoor market and give it to him tomorrow for his birthday.

Shoot, I should just copy this into a new blog post and put it on my blog!

Nice job - rubbed off polish is in?? Then I'm cool - thanks for the affirmation! And that daughter of yours is gorgeous!

No I didn't dip in to the closet of Christmas presents for the 4th time since Friday and this time let Mackenna wear her furry "crocs" from The Children's Place to gymnastics today- even if it would be easier than listening to her cry that socks and shoes would "ruin" her painted toenails.

Ha. This is great. Messed up fingernail polish, Oreos, and tired eyes. I'd never do any of that either.
