Not Me Monday – March 8, 2010

Hey ya’ll!  I bet you thought I had disappeared huh?

After a week of almost no kids and a LOT of reorganizing, we suffered through a week of three sick kids and a sick momma.  Actually, momma is still sniffling a bit but a least I can smell the bagel dog I am blissfully eating… ALL BY MYSELF!

Since I know you missed me, here are a few of my more interesting ‘not me’ moments from the past weeks:

* It was definitely not me that told my husband that I would LOVE to spend some “time *wink wink*” with him except that between the gigantic belly and the sniffly sneezing coughing aching head cold I’d probably just wet the bed… to which is rolled his eyes and plopped down in his recliner.

* It was sooo not me that hunted down the Schwan‘s delivery guy on Friday night because it was after 9 pm and he still had not shown up with my bagel dogs.  It would be selfish for me to ask him to still come to my house (eventually at 10:40pm) just to deliver bagel dogs to a pregnant lady who had been fantasizing about them for DAYS (thanks to @joyfulnspirit ‘s daughter)

* I’m not sure who told my in laws that I was feeling better on Friday and that it would be okay for them to come stay the night.  I mean, come ON, we were gone all last weekend and then sick all week, was company really a smart move? Of course not, so obviously it was NOT ME that made that call.

I’m sure there were more things I didn’t do, horribly mean and hateful things, but I can’t remember them.  I only have visions of Kleenex tissues in my head and gallons upon gallons of orange juice!

Not Me Monday – February 8th

I am not currently hiding sitting at the kitchen table eating Superbowl leftovers that I reheated in the same sandwich baggy that hubby used to save them for me.  I mean, I totally know how horrible it is to microwave plastics and such and I know that one should move it to a plate or something, right?

I’m also not feeling all twisted and irritable over having to sweep my kitchen floor 500 billion times a day.  **Dear Hubster, I’d mop it if I weren’t so dang busy trying to keep the goldfish crackers swept up**

I most definitely am not getting all annoyed over the sound of my own name.  I am proud to be Mom, Momma, Mommy, etc….  why on Earth would I ever get tired of hearing my own name chanted to me constantly from sun up to sun down and even after then?  It’s sweet music to my ears…. NOT.

I wouldn’t even imagine shoveling the snow off the back porch as an escape from the whining and chaos inside my house… never, cuz I hate snow, and I’m 6 mths pregnant and I know that shoveling snow is going to make me very uncomfy.

I have never wished my children’s imaginations had pause buttons.

and I did not wake up this morning to look in the mirror only to notice that I was wearing the same nightshirt  the entire weekend (um.. yeah… I must have gotten dressed at some point right?)

What didn’t you do or say this week?

Not Me Monday… Feb 1st

a few Not Me’s from the past week… short and sweet, as it’s hard to think with two meltdowns happening in the background.

If you think you saw me dragging my kids through the library parking lot heading to the ‘Grown Up’ side you are wrong. It was definitely NOT ME as you should know I cannot read anything harder than Dr. Seuss.

Well, maybe I can read, but seeing how I haven’t read anything over 20 pages long in 9 years it’s hard to remember.

And if you think you saw us yesterday at Wal-Mart buying Doodlebug (DD8) a $20 skateboard just because she REALLY REALLY wants to learn how to ride one. That would be ridiculous. We had over 6 inches of snow Friday and Saturday and skateboarding is totally out of the question.

AND…. I most certainly did NOT get onto google talk with my father in law today batting my eyes and crack jokes about how much MORE Mary Kay he should buy from me because the netbook I want is on sale at Wal Mart. I didn’t do it. That said, I also did NOT offer to sell him the generator he’s been borrowing for a year if effort to get the funds to buy the netbook. Nope Not Me…

Not Me Monday – January 18th

In my head I had this wonderfully humorous post. My children melted those particular brain cells about three hours ago… so now you just get the snippets I have found lying around the floor of my brain:

I decided to make my kids brownies the other night after supper.  Very out of character for me as I don’t really care much for brownies and rarely do I want to cook something once I’ve cooked dinner.  I definitely did not decide to cook them just so I could eat the batter… nope, not me.

I also was not soooo busy trying to figure out how I was going to keep the beater eaters out of my way (so I could lick the bowl all by myself) that I misread the directions and put in 1 WHOLE cup of water in there instead of 1/4 of a cup! Can anyone say Brownie Soup?

**yes, I cooked them anyway, and yes, they were yummy…  until yesterday when I totally did NOT accidentally spray them with kitchen cleaner while cleaning the counters… nope, not me, cuz I would have had them neatly tucked away in the fridge or something…**

I most certainly did not cheat on my own 15 minute challenge on last Thursday by shoving a pile, and I mean PILE, of unmatched socks into the nearest drawer so that it appeared like I had finished the laundry.

I also did not round off my Thursday of decadence by using my sister’s visit as an excuse to get chinese take out. Even though I had two chinese dinner kits, and all the ingredients for cheese wontons in my kitchen already.

That was also not me in the mall last Saturday, getting roped into buying some sort of nail buffer set from nice lady at the kiosk.  I’m much to smart for that!

Not Me Monday

I was up early this morning…  me, but it was entirely by accident.

I fixed a yummy nutritious well balanced breakfast for the whole family…  not me, I did make hubby some muffins (sooo not from scratch), but the kids got cereal, and I think Doodlebug actually fixed it for her and Tader.

I had the bulk of my chores done before we even started schoolwork (ya know, there really wasn’t that much, I stay pretty on top of things around here)…  um again, not me, and not it’s almost lunch and well, yeah, you know how this is going to end right?

I planned the coolest assignments today and the girls loved them and did their work without fuss!…  not me, not us, not ever!  I thought I had something fun planned.  We even looked good when we started, but as usual, we encountered multiple meltdowns over how hard it is to write the letter V and how boring math is and so on.

For my sanity I think I will let them watch a movie, since our tot is napping, and I may go lock myself into the freeezing cold garage doing pretending to do laundry.

OR

*evil laugh*

I put THEM in the garage with some left over wrapping paper and markers and they can draw me a lovely mural of a sunny landscape!  (or color each other, I don’t much care today)

God Bless the motivated and ‘on top of things’ moms this morning… I’m gonna go be happy I actually called my midwife today for our checkup. 

I have invited my facebook friends to another 15 minute challenge today (read about it here and here). One of them is already done…  I’m slacking, time to find my timer.

Happy “Not Me” Monday Ya’ll!
