Not Me Monday

Pin It

Yep, it's Monday again, and writing this should be very easy because I didn't do a darn thing this week.

Here is just a small sample of the things I didn't do this week.

I didn't sit my children, especially the youngest, in front of the TV for way too long this week. I didn't at any time encourage them to watch anything they wanted, as long as they were quiet. I love listening to my children's sweet voices, so I wouldn't beg and plead and give into to too much TV just for some quiet. Plus those TV children have voices that are way more annoying than my own children, so I'd never do that. Except that those TV children have this handy dandy remote control to reign in the volume of their little voices. I can't seem to find one of those remote controls that work on my children.

And speaking of children and voices, I did not YELL at my children to tell them to quit yelling at each other this week. How much sense would that make? My children don't yell at each other anyway. They're sweet little angels who always get along perfectly.

We hit a difficult subject at school this week. It's really the first "hard" thing we've come across in a while, which is a blessing. The problem is, my mind works so that I can easily understand things like we came across this week. My child's does not. I suspect that this area is just not her gift. In trying to work this out, I did not essentially give up and just walk away for the day. I know it's better to tackle stuff head on, so I wouldn't just decide that I'd rather put it away for another day! The other child did not decide that she had hit a wall as well, and decide that she needed to be able to just take a day off too. I didn't take this idea and run with it and spend the afternoon relaxing either!

and one more ...

I did not sit in a Weight Loss Class yesterday at church, bow my head for our closing prayer, and realize that I had chocolate down the front of my shirt. Oh my, how embarrassing would that be! I'm so glad that didn't happen to me!

How about yours? What did you not do this week?
