Not Me Monday 8-3-09

I DON'T often post twice in one day. But it has come to my attention that my youngers love Not Me Monday! The other day, I asked Nathaniel if he wanted to play a game or did he want me to read him a book. And he said, “Will you read me Not Me Monday?” And I said, “How do you know about Not Me Monday?” He said, “KK reads them to us on date night. They are really funny.” Turns out the kids were bummed that I did NOT post one last week.

Apparently a lot happens in our house on date night, which I do NOT know about. I am blessed that I don’t have to worry about what it might be. Do you know what I mean?

Without further blah, blah, blah…

One thing I did NOT do this weekend was work around the house. NOR did we go to

Home Depot. We did NOT fix anything. We did NOT clean anything. We did NOT lift NOR did we lay a paver stone. NO really, we did NOT.

In fact for the first time since April we did NOT take the weekend off.

But lest anyone be mistaken. I do NOT want you to think we had fun. We all know that fun is NOT allowed in our family! NO fun here in Wachter world! We have too many kids to have fun. Especially, grown up fun without kids.

We were NOT spontaneous. Anyone who knows us, knows that we are NEVER spontaneous. We need to always plan ahead and make arrangements.

And we definitely were NOT silly. We are level headed and sober people. Silly would NOT be a good example to our children.

We did NOT leave seven children home for the weekend with NO notice. That would NOT make us very good parents. We are NOT blessed to have young adults at home who say, “Go and have a good time. We do NOT have everything under control.”

Oh¸ and while we were away, we did NOT miss the kids. NOR did we NOT call home to check on them.

We did NOT eat dinner at two in the morning. We did NOT meet some fun people. We did NOT lay around until almost noon. NOR did we sit by a window in a luxurious hotel room and watch a thunderstorm when we should have been rushing home to see how everyone was doing there.

We did NOT stop at Starbucks for a 4 shot iced espresso and we did NOT get the full powered caffeinated kind either.

We did NOT have a fabulous, romantic, silly, energizing time and ask ourselves when we can NOT do it again.

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.


  1. It sounds like you had a great weekend! Happy Monday!

  2. Kat,

    I love what you did here. Hmm, if I think long and hard about it that only thing that really sticks out in my mind is that I did NOT fall down and crack my tailbone this weekend and I did NOT stay stuck in bed all day today and for the remainder of the week. I did NOT listen to my doctors advice that if I did NOT lay down, I might be able to get up on Saturday and be myself again.

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat

  3. Well, so glad you did NOT have any fun this weekend. hahaha Great post!

  4. Kat, I agree with your kids. You should Not Not do a Not Me post ever again. They are Not Great!

  5. So glad you were able to get away! I love your kids' signs!
