Not Me Monday

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.

I'm so excited to finally be purging my thoughts and imperfections into my Not Me Monday post. We took a short break last week in honor of Memorial Day - but are hitting it strong this week.

So without further ado......

1) I most certainly did not run out of turkey hot dogs one day last week only to set myself off in a panic. See, turkey hot dogs are my staple back up food. When Dave is traveling (which he was) or I don't feel like cooking ANYTHING, we grill up a few turkey hot dogs and the kids are happy. Well, the other day I most certainly did not run out of the coveted food and then make a mad dash to the store that same evening to pick up another pack. I did not come home of course to realize that there were four packs frozen in the freezer when I went in to grab a weight watchers ice cream treat. Ugh, that shopping trip was not for nothing. Not me.

2) I most certainly did not stumble into the shower yesterday after suffering from pure exhaustion only to emerge with shampoo left in my hair and half my legs not shaved because I don't remember doing anything in the shower - in fact, in all honesty, I don't even remember showering. Um, not me.

3) I absolutely did not drag my children out grocery shopping last week too close to lunch time that by the time we were done, they were on the verge of losing all sanity. I did not think fast and begin pulling out many of the groceries I had just bought and began feeding them picnic style in the back of the truck in the grocery store parking lot. People certainly did not stop and stare, but rather kept on walking (minding their own business as oh so many people do these days) And i won't at all admit that the parking lot we were camped out in was Walmart. Oh no - not this mama.

4) I did not drive all the way into work yesterday only to find out that I had made a mistake - gasp - and was not even on the schedule to work. There is no way that I would make a 'planner error' and transcribe my work schedule wrong. That only happens to the 'disorganized' people - not this organized, busy mom of 2. Ha - not me.

5)I did not encounter my 2 year old daughter stumbling out of the bathroom with her pants down and her finger sticking out asking "mama, what's this?" At first I thought she had snot on her finger or some other disgusting piece of dirt that she picked up from the garbage but oh no. My little Paloma was NOT standing there with a piece of poop on her finger asking me to examine its properties. Are you kidding. That was not me.

Yes, this unfortunately is only the tip of the iceberg for Not Me stories this past 2 weeks. I could think of at least 5 more 'stories' that have occurred but I am Not off to paint my spare bedroom ASPARAGUS in preparation of my parents coming. Of course, I'm way to on the ball to have possibly let 2 years go by without painting the interior of my house. Hello, I have all the time in the world and can't imagine why I wouldn't get little projects like that done.

With that - Happy Monday!

Wow! This is what happens when two weeks go by without a Not Me Monday! They were all hilarious! Doesn't sound like my big sis at all!

I connected to your blog through MckMama. I enjoy reading Not Me's, though I took a break myself this week from posting one. Just wanted to say that the poop story is hilarious. Kids are so funny! I am not a mom yet, but am a pediatric nurse and love to watch the kiddos "discover" new things. Here's hoping it's not poop next time :-)

Thanks for all the encouragement! When we just had Ellie and Luke yesterday, it really was much easier. They do get older! I'm so impressed by your garden. I want one so badly, but it will have to be another summer. Thanks again!
