Not Me Monday

Today is Monday and you know what that means... It's "Not Me! Monday!" You can read more "Not Me! Monday" posts over at My Charming Kids.
Lately my boys have been sleeping in their new bed every night. Or not. But you know I certainly have not been letting them sleep in my room since Jason left. That would be silly. Especially since I do not already have 2 boys in my bed. And I definitely wouldn't let them "camp out" under the dining room table. What kind of mother would do that?
Not me.

Yesterday I definitely did not watch the entire Super Bowl, most of it with Matthew. I did not get up and dance when The Boss came on at halftime. I did not yell at my tv when the Steelers scored that 100-yard touchdown even though I am not a fan of either team. And I will not be ashamed to admit that I'm a Skins fan. (They're due, ok???) And I would never laugh at Jason for not knowing anything about football. (Cardinals from St. Louis? That's baseball, honey.) Oops, I did not just say that.

Today I certainly did not wake up and drive Joshua to speech. And then go to CVS. And then to Publix. And then to Target. And to Chik-Fil-A. And then to the service station to order a towing hitch for the van. And then to someone's house to pick up a second Jumperoo I bought off of Craig's list. And then to Best Buy. And then home. I would never, ever, in a million years subject my children to the horrors of getting in and out of the van 9 times in one day. At least if I was sane I'd never do that.

Which leads me to my next thought. I most certainly am not insane. I am not! Shut up, voices in my head! I'm not crazy! Not! Not! Not!!!
I think I may be losing it. Or not. I'm not sure. I may have already lost it. I need adult conversation. I need a shower. I need a minute to think without someone needing their diaper changed. I need to relax!
But I'm definitely not going to eat a you-know-what to calm myself down.
Not me.
