"Not Me!" Monday

I did NOT feed my children instant oatmeal for dinner one night this week, because I was rushed to get to Bunco and it was fast and easy. Nope, not me. What kind of mother would do that anyway?!

And I absolutely did NOT let my 1 1/2 year old son eat marshmallows out of the bag that he brought to me from the cupboard BEFORE he had breakfast...several days this week. That would be so not nutritious. I would NEVER do THAT!

I, also, did not have to hold my tongue when an older gentlemen behind me in line muttered (so I could hear) to his wife that some people should just take "no" for an answer and "doesn't she know what "no" means" and various other comments about me when the Walgreens cashier told me she could only take 1 of my coupons and I knew she could take more and she had to call the manager up (I ended up being right, but that's beside the point.) And I did not turn around and look at him, waiting for him to look at me while he purposely did not look at me (because he realized that I had heard him, which quite possibly could have been his intent all along, but oh well).

Phew. Did that make any sense?? (btw, in retrospect I should have turned and thanked him in the kindest way for being so patient with me and my couponing ways. Lesson learned. He probably just needed a little of Jesus' grace and joy and I totally messed up my opportunity to be the one to show it to him:(...)

I know there a few other things that I did NOT do this past week, but I did NOT save this until 11:41pm on Monday night to finish, thus making my brain mush and incapable of regurgitating any useful info. Nope. Didn't do it. So there you go....

...stay tuned next Monday for more things that I would never, ever in a million years, do.:)
