Not Me Monday

It has been a while since I participated in a Not Me Monday.  But after the week I had, I knew it was time to confess my Not Me-isms. 🙂

So, 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.

It was certainly not me that wore my contacts in the opposite eyes for an entire week.  Wondering all week, what was wrong with my eyes, and my contacts!  Finally after some investigating I realized the boxes were labeled wrong.  I had really thought my eyes had suddenly gotten worse…….but apparently it was just my brain that was the problem not my eyes!

It was not me that bought this gigantic container of Jelly Belly jelly beans at Costco, and sat on the couch for almost 45 min. trying every flavor in the container and mixing and matching jelly beans to make new combos.  What fun! 🙂  Wow, and what kind of adult would do that for 45 min.?!?!  Not me of course!

It was not me  who got so excited the night before our recent BIG snowstorm, that I actually got up several times that night to check on the progress of the storm.  A tired, old mom would never do such a silly thing as that! 🙂

It was not me that called my son from the basement on my cell phone, to tell him to come downstairs for something!  No that would be so lazy of me!

It was not me who jumped from the top of what the snow plow plowed into the end of our driveway, into a big 3 ft drift like I was jumping into a swimming pool.  No I am much to old for something crazy like that. 🙂

Not Me Monday


Not me Monday is always a fun way to let loose a bit and reveal all those funny little family secrets. 🙂

So stop by My Charming Kids and join in on the fun.  And while you are there please continue to pray for MckMamma’s dear little boy Stellan.

  • It was not my 14 year old son who sneezed on the way to school this morning, and then proudly exclaimed, “Mom do you know what one of the coolest things is about spray painting the fort blue yesterday………I  have blue boogers!”  Wow, that is a proud mom moment!  Can I just tell you how very cool he thought that was!
  • It was not me who stood in the pouring down rain to watch The Inventor’s soccer game on Sunday….did I mention that it was pouring!!
  • It was not me who actually revealed my real age at Texas Roadhouse when the family took me out for my birthday dinner on Sat. night.  The waitress said, “what age do you want to be?”, and I actually said my real age!  What was I thinking I could have been 29 again!
  • It was not me who texted my daughter all day during the school day while she was on a field trip to Washington DC.  I know it’s not very professional of me, especially since students are not allowed to have cell phones at school.  Don’t tell anyone, I was so slick, no one knew what I was doing!
  • It was not me who on my own accord with no prompting got on the bottom level of a pyramid with my Girls Alive group of girls.  Think 10-12 5th and 6th graders on the top!

Oh what fun these Not Me posts are!  Click on the button above for more Not Me posts.
It was Not my son who was diagnosed with the flu on Thurs. but  was then outside with out a shirt on and wearing shorts on Friday afternoon working on his fort!!!   It is Not me who thinks Tamiflu must be a miracle drug.


It was Not me who walked out on the deck Sat. morning to be greeted by 65 degree weather and raised my hands in the air and shouted hallelujah, no I would not do something so silly!
It was not me who took great pride and found such joy and peace in  completing 6 loads on laundry on Monday.  It was not me who was amazed at the feeling of relief to finish so much laundry.
It was not me who had a crazy Thurs. morning, and did not have time to make coffee at home.  So I did not stop at our local Dunkin Donuts, and could not understand their sale sign of 2 donuts + coffee=.99 cent coffee.  It was not me who thought it would cost $2, and it was not me who was a dollar short when I went to pay.  But it was not the clerk who was kind enough to say to this frazzled mom, “don’t worry about the extra dollar!”  So it was not me that left Dunkin Donuts with a smile on my face, a nice cup of coffee and 2 donuts that I DID NOT quickly consume with in seconds!!!  I had a serious Homer Simpsom moment!
