I like joining in on Not Me Monday over at My Charming Kids. It's good - free - therapy, just like she markets it!
Here is what I did not do this week:
I did not forget the eggs in the pumpkin pies until it was about ready to go into the oven and then whip eggs into the pastry-filled pies - so as not to waste the filling.
I did not forget the sugar in the SAME pies until after one had already gone through the oven.
I did not whip the sugar into the remaining two pies so as to not waste the filling.
I did not scoop the already-baked pie filling into a saucepan, stir it up with an extra egg and half a cup of sugar - so as to .... you guessed it... not WASTE the filling!
I did not serve them either.
I did not put up the Christmas tree and then leave it, as there were no decorations to put on it.
I did not pull out all sorts of scraps and butcher a pillow so I could make new decorations.
I did not make my sister trace shapes off of her computer's google images for those new decorations.
I did not wear non-preggo jeans simply because I think they look better. The baby did not kick at them repeatedly. I did not get a stomach ache from wearing them. I did not take them off later in the day and opt for maternity jeans because I was so miserable.
I do not plan to do that again.
I am not panicky about Christmas, presents, food, baking, decorations, etc. That would be silly. I still have 3 1/2 weeks left to do all of that.
I did not spend the majority of my evening last night knitting a baby sweater. I'm more exciting than that.
I did not put tape on my bra's underwire to keep it from poking me. I did not resew it when I got home from work, since the tape [obviously] worked so well!
I do not need to buy a new one. No way. It fits perfectly. I am not in denial.
All that to say. I hope there's some stuff you didn't do this week. Join in on the free therapy!
