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.
It has been a looong couple of weeks trying to catch up from four days of in and out of the hospital and another week of hanging out with a sick little boy. While all this was going on there are several things that I would never dream of doing and there is no way that you can prove it.
I did not toss a load of cloth diapers into the washer moments before I realized I had to head out to the emergency room once again in the middle of the night. I did not completely forget about them until two days later when Owee was released. I did not wash them again Thursday night and forget about them again until Sunday, when I washed them again. And I most definitely did not wash them and forget about them several more times last week until I found them again yesterday. No way would I wash the same load of musty cloth diapers way too many times over a two week period. I would never waste water, laundry soap or electricity like that. I also would not have done that because I was not even trying to wash any of our clothes during that same two week time. There is no way that I would go for two weeks without doing a single load of dirty clothes. That would just never happen. (one thing I did do, though is send Wall Nut out for disposable diapers for She Nut...in case you were wondering if she was wearing anything at all!)
I did not pile up the mountain of laundry so that I could reach things on the top shelf in the laundry room. I did not pretend the whole thing did not exist at all to keep from feeling guilty. And I did not mix and match my boy's clothes making them wear some things that were too big and some that were too small just so that they had something to wear. My 3 year old did not wear his 8 year old brothers socks all week long either. Nope, that did not happen, and you can't prove it.
Of course we know that I did not take down the Valentines Day tree and decorate an Easter tree. And I would never post pictures of that online. That would be just to embarrassing.
I did not struggle with my son's homeschool lessons and let things slide because I just couldn't concentrate. And the fact that we are already behind in our lessons did not give me huge amount of guilt on top of it all. I am a perfect mom and teacher and would never turn writing assignments into discussion assignments to make things easier on me. Never. I wouldn't dream of it.
I did not spend time laying around on the couch watching talk shows and daytime television instead of cleaning the house, or anything else for that mater, for a couple of days. And I did not spend those couple of days cuddled up with a sick little boy using the excuse that he was just too sick to put down.
I did not let almost everything go for two weeks and without a single bit of remorse.
