There are new rules for this… so I hope I get it right.  Please visit the original Not Me, Mckmama.

I did not forget what today was an sit at my computer and wonder where everyone was.  I am on top of things!  I am sure I looked at a calender and acknowledged the man that this day is in honor of.

I have total respect for others.  I most certainly did not nurse my baby in public just because I could.  I always want everyone to be as comfortable as possible.   

I absolutely did not spend every second of my kids' naps and then some 'working' on my blog this weekend.  I would not be so vain as to spend hours making my blog different.  I am a good wife and mother and actually spend time with my family!

I did not decide to skip out of church this morning, even though my hubby was going to go.  I did not send my oldest off with him, then sit at home with my baby and Parker.  Then, half way through the service, I did not realize that I forgot to send the double stroller with hubby, even though I had promised it to someone at church.  So I did not have to show up at the end of church with said stroller.  And I most certainly did not pretend like I had been there all along.  I would never do that.

I did not have a mini panic attack as I realized I have not taken pictures of my kids for almost 4 days.  Audrey is huge already and I have no proof! 


(is she mocking me???)

I am a concerned citizen and patriotic and try to honor those in in positions of authority, so I would never try to avoid anything and everything on TV related to the inauguration.  I would never get twitches and nervous ticks every time I hear the new president speak because it grates on my nerves.  That would be un-American!  And I would never admit that to a bunch of people that adore the ground he walks on!  I have to much tact for that.

What are you not doing?

God bless!

And if any of you are visitng from Mckmama's, whatever you do, do NOT leave a little comment love.

  1. I too am NOT going to avoid the teacher’s lounge tomorrow, listening to the radio, turning on the tv or doing anything else that might put me into the presence of anyone talking about the inaguration. I’m NOT proud to say that either! 🙂

  2. Everything that you “didn’t” do this week is exactly the things that I “wouldn’t” do! lol
    You have one beautiful baby.
    I am off to read the rest of your blog. This is the first blog post of yours I have read.

  3. Audrey is so cute! Great Not Me’s…I hear you on the President thing. I am tired of hearing about it. I am just ready to get it over with. Have a great week!

  4. Great Not Me’s! I’m not totally avoiding anything on tv that has to do with the inauguration either. Nope. And I don’t get an awful feeling when thinking of our new president and all the ‘changes’ he will bring. I have complete trust in our government.
    Thanks for stopping by our blog.

  5. And I? Am NOT laughing at all these things you didn’t do.
    Had to read it to my kids because they wouldn’t just believe me that, “This lady wrote some funny things.” I am NOT quite sure they got the humor…*grin*
    Thanks for the laughs.
