Not Me! Monday!


Not Me! Monday! Was created by MckMama out of her desire to admit imperfections in a therapeutic, fun way. Head on over to her blog to see what everyone else has NOT been doing this week!

Welcome to Not Me! Monday!

I did NOT start working on Not Me! Monday! at midnight even though everyone (including Drew) was sleeping soundly. I am NOT severely sleep deprived because Drew has been waking up every half-hour to hour every night for a week. I was NOT frustrated beyond all belief that, tired as I am, I could not sleep. Even though I really really needed it.

Grant was NOT tossing and turning on a very noisy mattress, and every toss and turn did NOT sound like someone breaking in through a window, freaking me out. I did NOT go into his room to check on him about five times, even though I knew what the noise was, just to make sure. I am NOT that fearful of someone breaking into the house at night!

OK. Enough with the late night chatter, and on with the real Not Me's!

I did NOT accidentally forget to turn the valve off on my propane tank, and try to use the barbecue to find that all my propane was gone. I did NOT then cook my pork chops on the stove, grumbling and complaining the whole time. At least they turned out well.

I did NOT have to make a run to Ace Hardware to get a new propane tank on July 3rd, hoping that I was not going to show up behind the fourth of July barbecuing slackers and find that there were no propane tanks left. I did NOT successfully get a new tank, and have yummy steaks on the fourth!

I did NOT pull a simple prank on my sister-in-law, and put pictures on my blog showing the inside of her new car to freak her out while she was on vacation. I did NOT simply write her a note and put it inside her car, telling her I loved her and that I was not going to do anything to the car, since it is brand new, and even I am nicer than that!

I did NOT let Holly believe that I pranked her house, but actually spent a few hours cleaning her kitchen when she was gone. Holly has NOT been surviving this past year as a full-time mom and a full-time college student, and her husband works on oil barges, so when he goes to work, he is gone for forty days. She did NOT finish this year with a 4.o, and her mom did NOT want to help her out and clean her kitchen since she has been so busy this year. I did NOT even move her fridge and stove and clean behind them. I did NOT take pictures to show only her, but I won't put them on the blog. Really, how would you like it if someone broke into your house unexpectedly and moved your fridge, took pictures of the floor under it and posted it for all to see? I may be mean, but come on, people!

And finally, I did NOT spend some time last week watching old Michael Jackson videos to remind myself that strange and weird as he was, he was incredibly talented and changed the music industry for the better. I did NOT giggle while watching Black Or White when I suddenly remembered watching this video as a kid and having a huge crush on him then.

What did you NOT do this week?

I can NOT believe that you did NOT post those pictures. Eww scary I just cleaned my kitchen today w/a toothbrush and was very very scared at what was under the fridge. But my pinesol perfume is lovely now balanced out by my orange and cream scentsy. Yum. You are wonderful to clean for super busy Holly:o)

Just hopping over from My Charming Kids. Love the blog. I was laughing so hard I was crying last night about the Jonas Brothers and Woody. I have a 3 yr old who tries to keep up with big sis and is also excited about things that she really has no clue about.

I love the Michael Jackson one - I too did the same thing. What's wrong with us??
