Not Me Monday


I did not sleep late on Saturday (thanks to my beautiful Bride).

I did not play video game until midnight (thanks to my lack of discipline).

I did not do as little as possible this weekend and I did not watch any TV. I did not enjoy a few moments in bed with all three of my girls this morning. We did not watch Oswald...and I did not almost fall asleep to it.

I did not take Itty Bitty to Home Depot...twice :) She did not do a good job and she did not help me carry the merchandise to the counter.

I did not laugh at anything Adsy said this week "You can't say that word, Daddy, tha't s mine!!". She did not offer to help me in every task and all of her 'help' was not to just give me a hug. (Sometimes that's the best help)

I did not choose 'Monk' or 'House' reruns over the NFL this weekend, but, on a related note, I did not root for the Cardinals to win. I did not wonder why the Cardinals are there and not the Cowboys for one moment. I did not wonder if Texas or Utah would've beaten Florida.

I did not hug my kids all weekend and I did not enjoy my quiet weekend with Jill at all. I did not type this post at all after midnight on Sunday Night to try to prolong the weekend.

Awww, you're a good dad and husband for not doing those things with your family.

Thanks for blogging by! Great list! Being from AZ we didn't root for the Cards to win either and we are so not excited that they did win and are playing here Sunday and we are not having a playoff party either! Have a great week!
