My first "NOT ME" Monday post

I read several blogs pretty regularly. From reading one I always check out their blog list and often find other blogs to subscribe to.
I found MckMama from Be Strong and Courageous and have always wanted to participate in what always appears fun and probably very theuraputic "Not Me" Monday.

Are you feeling guilty for avoiding making a dentist appointment for just one more month because you hate going there so much? Hope that no one saw you pick your nose while you sat at the traffic light? Overcome with shame because, in your house, cleaning for guests just means shoving stuff into drawers and closets? Well don't be! Not Me! Monday was born out of my desire to admit some of my imperfections and reveal a few moments I'd rather forget. You may find it therapeutic to join in and do the same thing!-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So, here's my very first one! Wahoo!

On Wednesday, I DID NOT skip a busy storytime at a big library because I was NOT in the mood for a lot of people. I did not take the boys to a smaller library, with no storytime so that I could enjoy a few minutes talking with a friend.

On Thursday I did not, not take any halloween goodie bags for the kids in Jacek's class because I'm new to this "having a kid in school" business. I did not get embarassed and try to leave as fast as I could once I realized all the other Mom's had brought them.

I did not rush home to book my flight to Richmond, VA after having to carry and pull my two screaming children out of the gym where I was trying to enjoy watching my niece play in a volleyball game. I did not have a HUGE smile on my face when I got my confirmation email with my flight itinerary. Nope not me!!

I did not find a disgustingly huge amount of dirt, dust and crumbs under our couch. I did not last clean under it almost two months ago.

I did not scream "JUST BE QUIET" at Aidan after almost 40 minutes of him screaming and crying in the van, even after pulling into a parking lot to change his diaper.

I did not get so emotionally upset this weekend that I almost puked.

And finally.....

I DID NOT eat another snack size box of Dots, while having a dull aching pain in my tooth. I did not ignore the pain and the fact that I probably have a few cavaties and enjoy every last yummy chew.

That was really to share any of your NOT ME's?
