"Not Me!" Monday


Welcome to 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.

This week my oldest 2 boys started back to school. I teach at the school that they go to so I knew I wouldn't be one of those moms weeping as they left their kids on the 1st day of Kindergarten and 1st grade. I mean anytime during the day I want to see them, I can walk right over and peer through their window. So I wouldn't have gotten all sad on the verge of tears over something so small and silly as a Big Kid Celebration at church celebrating Brayden being a big boy and leaving the preschool side nor would I have gotten sad when I had to drop Brandt off in the commons at school today instead of his classroom like the last 2 years. I mean there are 1st graders through 12th graders in there, I know that. I wouldn't have forgotten something like that and tried to drop him off in his classroom and had the matching shocked look when the teacher said he needs to go to the commons. I mean I have early morning duty in there tomorrow, surely I wouldn't forget my own child was big enough to go in there. Nope not me!

This week I also did not daydream about grocery shopping for almost 5 days before I actually went to the store. Grocery shopping is one of my least favorite things, because it either involves taking lots of kids or waiting until they are in bed and I can go by myself which in turn makes it very late before I can get in bed. So I surely wouldn't have been anxiously awaiting the store on Saturday. Nor would I have spent a couple of hours cutting coupons, printing coupons, and loading e-coupons to my Kroger card. Who has that kind of time? And I certainly wouldn't have gone to 3 seperate Krogers in one day, that would be torture. It is not like Kroger's Double coupons up to $1 sale would be worth that. Or saving 81% on my shopping bill be worth the headache and time. No, I am not totally in love with coupons and saving money. Doesn't describe me at all!
