NOT ME! Monday



I found a greatblog with a wonderful carnival that I've decided to play along with...I love it!!  Made me laugh--and I like laughing!! 
The idea behind it, is that although most people would LOVE to have life go PERFECT at all times...it just doesn't happen.  That sucks.  And sometimes it's hard to admit--Especially for someone (like me) who likes order, control, organization. We need to take time out to laugh at life, realize that it's not always (nor will it ever be) perfect, and things happen.
But mostly to learn and live knowing that we are NOT in control.  There is only ONE in control and if we trust Him with our lives, he will make straight the path. 


 Hope you enjoy "NOT ME! Mondays "


I did not spend an hour surfing and reading blogs today.  I did not find this great carnival, decide to join in, nor spend the REST of my day thinking of things that did not happen this week.

I did not make a separate trip to W.a.l.m.a.r.t. tonight to get di.et co.ke.  I do not like di.et co.ke.  Nor do I drink it.  Drinking it would be very unhealthy, which, ofcourse, I am not.

I did not check my facebook account while at work.  Everyone knows that you do not use your employers computer/internet for personal use.  I would never do that.  That's just wrong.

I did not char to DEATH a WHOLE can of marinara sauce.  First off, if I was cooking marinara sauce, it obviously would not be out of a can, and second, if I did burn it that would mean I would have to have been absent from the gas burner, that was on.  And I simply would not do that.  That would be dangerous.  Safety is my first name.

I so did not refrain from showering for two days because I had my hair done.  I don't  like the way she styles it, so I would never leave it for two days so that it would stay just the way she did it.  That's plain dirty.  And vain.  I'm never dirty nor vain.

I did not let my son wear his sisters pink pajamas to bed because he wanted to be a girl.  That's silly.  He's a man's man.  I did, however, teach him, at 4, how to shave and burp--him being a man and all.

I  did not walk my children to school without brushing my teeth, my hair, nor wearing a bra.  That's grosse.  And I wouldn't do that.  Never ever.

I did not let the baby lay in bed 1/2 hour after she woke so I could read a book.  Who does that? Not me.  That's just lazy.  I am never lazy.

 I did not work an 11hr shift, then take the kids to 1 1/2 glorious hours of gymnastics, getting home at 8:30pm, putting 4 extremely happy children to bed early by 9:00pm.  I did not want to watch my favourite show, that did not start at 9:00, nor did I want to eat supper.  I did not want to hang my husband for not leaving piles of dirty clothes on the floor, dishes in the sink, nor mail/school work on the counter.  I did not throw those things ALL into a hamper.  Nor did I humph and frumph around the house angry.  And, when my husband arrived home and slouched in front of the t.v.  (which I was obviously watching because I was not picking up from the day!)  I absolutely DID NOT throw a chocolate bar at him when he spilled the di.et co.ke that I wasn't drinking and looked at me to clean it up.  I would  never throw something. Especially at my husband.  And if I was to throw something, it wouldn't be a chocolate bar. Because I don't eat chocolate and I would never eat it for super at 10:oo at night!  As for the drinking of di.et cok.e?  Come on!  Never.

Cute! The problem with this carnival, is that you spend the rest of the week trying to come up with NOT ME moments. its rather embarrassing. I never do it of course. But others might.

Jennifer said...

So with you on the little boy wearing the pink. My middle likes to OCCASIONALLY wear a cinderella costume and makeup. But its only make believe, right??

That was the funniest "Not Me" that I have read in awhile. And I did not click on your blog first before anyone else's just because your name is the same as mine. That's just silly. :)

You are quite a riot Amy...I am only disappointed by one thing...THROWING CHOCOLATE?!??!??!?!
Come on, that little bit of ecstasy is never to be treated in such a vile manner!
Try a shoe or even a frying pan next time, but Chocolate? SHOCKING!!!!

Sister, I've gone into a full-fledged panic attack at the thought of not having a cold Diet Coke in my fridge. I can totally relate!!!

heidi said...

I am so glad you did NOT have a day like the one you described. That would have sucked.

Katie said...

Too funny! Sounds like my husband. Although I think he has learned by now that if I am watching certain show he needs to just back away and not even bother! I love that you too have dressed your son in girls clothes. With two older sisters I think mine is used to it by now.

Lori said...

be prepared for spending the rest of the week thinking of next Monday's Not Me post!!

Omgoodess... You are hilarious!

I have NEVER done the same with my hair... I have not tried to unsuccesfully carry it into the third day.

I DO NOT live on diet coke!
