Not Me! Monday

OK, I KNOW MckMama, the creator of this blog carnival, and I are not the only ones in need of admitting to a few things this past week. So fess up and join in over at My Charming Kids...

I absolutely would never not care if this doesn't turn out to be overly creative or funny just because my head feels like it's going to explode, the sinuses are pounding, and the cough is starting. Nope. Not me.

I did not while changing a poopy diaper, after last week being grossed out by it, decide that it was a good idea to THIS time simply pick up with my fingers the piece that "rolled" off his bottom onto the carpet. That would be disgusting, so I definitely would not do that.

I did not while doing Jillian Michael's (from The Biggest Loser) 30 day Shred find myself literally GASPING for air a short 5 minutes into it. And even if I did, I would never admit to the blogging world that I am THAT out of shape. Seriously, I could BE Jillian. That's what I'm talkin' about.

...and a couple days later I did not find myself so sore that I could barely lower myself to the floor to change Lincoln's diapers and clothes...oh, who are we kidding, I could barely lower myself to the toilet...I loathe lunges.

I did not walk into the bathroom while darling daughter was going, to find her sucking a finger, most assuredly the one and the same that she had just used while wiping her potty. ...because that might reflect poor parenting, so that definitely did not happen to me.

And if you could have snuck a peek into my kitchen this last week, you most definitely would not have seen me warming my hands over the toaster while it toasted my english muffin for breakfast. I would not be so desperate to be warm (because we are definitely not keeping the heat lower than we ever have before just to save each month on our heating bill), that I would do that. Not me.

I absolutely would never in a million years grab my camera to snap pictures of Lincs while he was crying 'cause he looked so cute doing it, and then have him start laughing while I was doing it.

Also, this past week my Babes did NOT turn 5. Absolutely not. My "baby" and I did not spend some time down at Not-So Urgent Care, and I did not contract Babyitis. Nope. And to find out more about those things, I am absolutely not giving you the links instead of writing it all out, actually yeah I am, because I

I am not now calling this post "good enough" for this week, since thinking is putting too much added pressure on my head....but at the same time I'm not a little irritated cause I know that there are things that I definitely didn't do this week that I am definitely not remembering....

I'll catch ya on the flip side.

Hope you feel better soon! Cute kids. I love that you warmed your hands over the toaster!! :-) And I feel your pain - literally - about the exercise issue.

It's really hard to re-roll toilet paper too! I always get excited when I come across fellow bloggers that live near me. And by "near" I mean at least the same state! ;-). I'm in Bellingham.
