Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This was created by MckMama, head on over to her blog to see what she and everyone else have NOT been doing this week!
We do NOT have a household of sickies. We did NOT spend the weekend cleaning up a couple of piles of puke, and reminding kids over and over (and over) to cover their coughs. We did NOT decide last night to opt out of a family gathering so as to try and not infect the rest of our family with our germs, even though the puking had ceased and we all seemed to be on the mend. Nope, we are NOT that responsible!
So there is certainly NO WAY we decided that we were too sick to hang out with family, but well enough to take the kids out to dinner at one of our favorite restaurants. I mean, we would NEVER take coughing children out in public, just because we have a coupon and very little groceries. NEVER.
And while we were there, we did NOT run into another family member who was skipping out on the family gathering, without the excuse of being sick. This family member shall remain nameless. (But we know who you are! Buuuuaaaahahahahaha! OK, I don't know why I just did the big evil laugh. It just seemed to fit.)
We did NOT have a certificate from restaurants.com for $25 off a purchase of $35 or more. Marty did NOT think it was off a purchase of $50 or more, so he did NOT keep telling me we needed to order more food. I was NOT so tired that I could not figure out for myself that two appetizers, two adult meals and three kids meals were going to be well over the $35 mark, and that they were not necessary. NOPE, I can do basic math and that would NEVER be a problem.
We did NOT decide that it was fine that we spent so much, as this might be our last meal out as a family for a long time. You know, depending on if the mechanic says Marty's car is fixable or not, and how much this new repair will eat into our tax return.
I did NOT go to the cupboard this morning to get myself a granola bar, only to find the cupboard without granola bars. Which is strange, since I bough three boxes at the grocery store last night. I did NOT then go through the evening in my mind, and realize that we went out to dinner, then to the grocery store, then the gas station, then another gas station because I forgot to get a paper at the last one, then another place since the gas station was out of papers, and by the time we got home it was past the kids' bedtime and we did NOT completely forget the groceries in the van.
I did NOT then call my husband, who has the van because his car is in the shop, and inform him of our mistake. Even though it is the middle of winter, I did NOT check the overnight temps because it has been hovering near 50 and would not be cold enough to handle the refrigerated stuff. I am sure his co-workers are NOT going to laugh at him as he brings six gallons of milk in the office to put in the work fridge instead of letting them spoil in the van all day.
I do NOT still want a granola bar.
What did you NOT do this week?
