Not Me Monday


So I thought I did pretty well this week, until I started writing my “Not Me’s” and they just kept coming… So here goes!

This week I did NOT go Christmas shopping and buy myself 2 Christmas ornaments and nothing for anyone else…

I did NOT read a book (Twilight) instead of doing laundry, cleaning, cooking, sleeping etc…

I did NOT make myself look busy in my patients room all night “working” when in reality I was taking photos of the babies and making cute signs to post over their incubators…

I also did NOT put off doing my Christmas cards because I still have NOT finished my “Thank you’s”...I have terrible bridal etiquette.

And I would NEVER go to a jewelry party and buy something because I felt bad that only 3 people came… I always purchase products at parties.

I did NOT justify not cleaning the house this weekend because I’m off work midway through the week…my house is always spotless.

And finally, I had to write one for Mr. Football himself, he did NOT cheat at cards this weekend because he could not stand to lose another game to his lovely wife…he would NEVER do that… he’s such a gracious loser.

Thanks MckMama for the free therapy! Be sure to check out her blog for more fun “Not Me’s”!

I think making photos to post over the babies' incubators should totally count as work! Their parents must be so grateful to have such a caring person taking care of their infants.

How sweet that you took photos of the babies. We do that too where I work. These ladies are scrapbook fanatics and make scrapbook pages of all the babies and hang them on their doors. Great list. Happy NMM!

I love that you made pictures to post. Where were you when my kids were babies? (Probably in preschool or gradeschool, lol!)

BTW, not to long ago I was cleaning out a closet and found a box with some thank you notes that never got mailed...and we have been married for 25 years (and still very much in love!)!!!!
