It’s Not Me Monday! over at MckMama’s. Please click the button below to see who else is playing this week.
I did not say Sugar Honey Ice Tea in front of my two year old when her passport fell behind the big heavy dresser.
I also did not exclaim loudly as to why we have to bring both of her passports even though she’s now a US citizen.
I didn’t shove way more into the washing machine than was a good idea just so I wouldn’t have to wait through another 2 hour and 15 minute cycle.
I didn’t trip over the open suitcase on the floor 500 times while packing.
I did not leave buying travel size toiletries until the very last minute.
I did not have to go to two grocery stores on Saturday night because the first was literally out of meat. No chicken, no steak, no nothing. I am not not kidding.
I did not spend hours on the internet getting my ‘fix’ because soon I’ll be going through internet detox for eight days.
I also did not freak out about that.
I did not figure out how to sneak my blackberry into the diaper bag without anyone seeing it.
I did not stare at the trunk of my car trying to figure out how we were going to fit three suitcases, three backpacks, and a stroller in there. I did not wonder if the kids could ride on the roof.
I did not spend far too much time making a vacation playlist for my ipod. I also didn’t find yet another album I’d love to buy.
I did not pack two notebooks, a journal, three pens and two books.
I also did not think at all about throwing up on this cruise. Because I do not get seasick at all!
Having said all that I am also not thrilled to be going on a non-visiting family vacation (even though my parents will be there) to somewhere warm. (If you are an expat you’ll understand that visiting family is anything but a vacation.)
I am not thrilled to be spending the next eight days in the presence of Mickey Mouse and Goofy.
I did not let my son skip three days of school to go on vacation even though he’s on holiday the week after.
I did not purposefully plan this vacation to avoid another year of German Karneval celebrations.
I did not tell all of you all of that either. Nope, cause it’s Not Me Monday!
So tell me what did you not do this week?
