Welcome to Not Me! Monday! Where we get to spill all our confessions for the past week, without really admitting to anything. Head on over to MckMama's blog when you are done here to see what everyone else has NOT been doing this week!
Over the Thanksgiving weekend, I did NOT ignore my blog completely, meaning there were no entries for four days. Nope, I am a dedicated blogger and would NEVER prioritize family/eating/shopping/sleeping over blogging.
I did NOT eat two huge pieces of caramel apple pie for dessert Thanksgiving day. And the afore-mentioned pie did NOT somehow make it's way to my house, where I had more the next day, and then the rest of it for breakfast the following day. Nope, I am proud of my recent weight loss and would NEVER subject myself to pie-induced belly flab, NOT me!
We did NOT have a wonderful, full, busy Thanksgiving day. I did NOT fall into bed around 10:30, despite my best efforts to go to bed early. And there is NO WAY I would get up at 2:30 the next morning, just to stand in line at various stores with thousands of other people, just to save a few bucks. NOPE, Black Friday is NOT one of my favorite days ever, and I would NOT have giggled in excitement to be standing in line outside of Kohl's at 3:45 in the morning, awaiting the chaos that was about to ensue.
Speaking of Black Friday, our family does NOT have a system of shopping down to an art so much that my Mother-in-law was featured on the front page of the Herald on Thanksgiving day. You can NOT find that article HERE. I do NOT have a method of systematically going through the ads, cutting out the things I want and taping them to a notebook containing my Christmas lists and budget, with notes and door buster deals. My sister-in-law and I did NOT end up giving tips to some new-to-Black-Friday shoppers while in line on more than one occasion, and we did NOT decide that we needed to teach a class on the finer points of Black Friday.
We did NOT snicker at a man in line in front of us at Target with two small items in a cart. We did NOT call him a "rookie" behind his back because seriously, you never get a cart unless you physically cannot hold everything you are buying. Carts will just slow you down.
I did NOT get 95% of my Christmas shopping done before 8 am.
We did NOT have a wonderful four day weekend, filled with family time and extended-family time. Marty and I did NOT decide to open a bottle of wine last night for a little relax-time. I most certainly did NOT break the cork upon opening it, it has NOT been that long since I have had wine! We did NOT decide that in order to preserve the wine's freshness without a cork, that it would be best for us to drink the entire bottle last night.
We were NOT such light drinkers that two glasses of wine each gave us quite the buzz. I did NOT realize that my husband is a lot more funny when he's been drinking. Or maybe he's just really funny when I've been drinking....
What did you NOT do this week?
