Not Me! Monday

This past week, I was not OVERJOYED to have my lovely children home with me on Friday. They were beautifully behaved little angels.

They were not little demons whom I felt the need to blog about in (ahem) ever so slightly derogatory terms.

(I am actually really embarrassed about this. but here we go....) On Saturday night, when my children were refusing to buckle their seatbelts when we were taking them to a children's party, one that we wanted them to have fun at, I did not kind of, sort of, tell them that (I can't believe I'm telling you all this) they were behaving like little idiots. OK I've admitted it. I feel better now.

I am not a tiny, itty bitty bit concerned that my readers might think that in reality I don't actually enjoy my children. I really, really do. They are lovely. They really are. But sometimes, ya know, it's just a little too much?!

I am not being highly entertained by watching the hubby do the Hula Hoop on the Wii Fit.

He has not broken a sweat by said activity.

I did not get up on Sunday morning, after less than 6 hours of sleep, and spring out of bed, so excited to go to CVS and get free product.

I was not sooooo ticked off that quite a few insane more devoted CVS bargain hunters went at midnight to clear out the darned store of all the "free after ECB" items.

But then I was not a wee bit too excited to realize that I could get rainchecks for said items!

I am not very embarrassed to be actually blogging about CVS.

I did not skip away from the bus when dropping Dovi off at the bus to Winter Camp.

I am not really needing this 4 day break from the work that is the D man.

I am not feeling a tad guilty for the need for the break.

I did not dump an entire coffee filter full of 10 cups-worth of coffee grounds into my garbage can that had no garbage bag in it.

And that did NOT happen because we are NOT out of garbage bags.

My house does not have 8 tubes of toothpaste yet no garbage bags.

I did not then scoop up as much as I could and then say to myself: "Only two days until the cleaning lady"

My check engine light did not go on this weekend.

I did not immediately wonder if the mechanic that we fought with might have purposely messed up something in my van.

The dealer did not tell me that it might have been "a bad tank of gas" that caused the light to go on.

I do not think that's a crock of you-know-what. What the heck does it mean "a bad tank of gas

But I am not just going to get my van and not ask any more questions.

Visiting from SITS. I don't think it's a crime to not enjoy one's children ALL the time. At least I hope it's not! I like your blog.

momma said...

Visiting from Sits. You are too funny! I think we've all been there with the "little idiots" comment. And people that say they haven't are lying! LOL!

Something in my house has bad gas too, and his name is Ate. We did not need to push off our candle lighting time by a half hour last night because after a week of waiting, Ate finally decided to do some business in his pants, right near the ready and waiting candles. And we had to wait for him to finish said business.

We all "lose it" on our kids every now and then. You're human. They'll forgive you.

Husbands hula hooping on the wi fit is a funny thing to watch. At least mine is.

My 3 year old seriously has not had insomnia for the lasr 2 nights and has not kept me up almost the whole noght for 2 nights in a row. That wouldn't even make sense- who ever hear of 3 year old insomniacs??!?

My husband loves to watch me play Wii too, boxing just cracks him up :)

And don't worry, I'm sure you love you kids, most days.

Shosh said...

Ahhh CVS is like a drug. and i forbid dovid to wash dishes the night before the cleaning lady comes and insist that he do other, non cleaning lady jobs.

Miriam said...

P.S. I was at CVS yesterday, and I got some freaking good deals on shampoo- like 25 cents a bottle!

DESJ and Company said...

what shampoo?
do tell.

Alexis said...

You are so not alone my dear, so many of my best post are from those days. Love the blog and the pictures.

Thanks for stopping by my blog :).

Alexis said...


Thanks for the easy recipe, I love it! Can't wait to do it with the boys!

Rachelz said...

Ok, so I went to CVS to see what all the hullabaloo was about. Pretty fun. I didn't get the crazy deals, but I did get some good presents for nieces and nephews.

You're hilarious by the way. All my moms do that at one point or another. Glad you survived your day on friday with all the kids home.
