This is my first time participating in Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.
I did not forget to call my mother and my mother-in-law on Mother’s day. I certainly wouldn’t forget to drop by my mom’s house since we live within walking distance. Even though I made her brunch on Saturday, I wouldn’t consider that an excuse not to do anything on Mother’s Day. I did not send my sister out shopping the day before Mother’s Day for a last minute gift for our mom. I did not run out of time to make a photobook for her, in spite of my best intentions.
And I would never count on my sister-in-law to pick up a gift for my mother-in-law and ask her to just sign the card from us as well. And I most certainly do not still have both mothers’ day cards still sitting on my desk unsigned. I love my mom (and mil) and always go all out on special occasions.
Speaking of my own Mother’s day, I did not consider the fact that my husband cleaned the kitchen and made cookies the best gift ever. I did not make him return the expensive purse he bought me. I did not have trouble justifying spending so much money on just a purse.
I did not exercise this week to a cheesy 90’s DVD. And if I did, I certainly would not be unable to complete a 5 minutes abdominal exercise. Having two children and one c-section is no excuse for not having any abdominal strength at all. I did not feel the burn from doing the aerobics exercise even without any weights. I certainly did not want to pause the DVD to give Princess a snack. I wouldn’t need a break after a short exercise program. And I did not start staring at the screen after 30 minutes and wonder when it was going to end.
I did not lose track of time and almost be late for work because of it. And it wouldn't have been because I was reading blogs. And speaking of reading, I did not read my first parenting book this week. I have not been trying to figure out the complexities of parenting on my own.
Those are all the things I did not do last week. What are some things you did not do last week?
