Not me! Monday

Welcome to my 4th week (I think!) of Not Me! Monday. Click on the button above to take you to MckMama's blog for more Not Me! Mondays!

So what didn't I do this week?

I did not let Dylan listen to his knight song (Muse's Knights of Cydonia) 4 times on our drive to the stable, just because I thought his singing along and dancing to it was adorable.

It wasn't me who forgot to latch Cherokee's stall door. It certainly wasn't me who went back to say goodbye to him 3 times, and caught the open door on the last goodbye. And then peeked around the corner to say goodbye again. (Why oh why can't he live with me?)

I did not realize that my hands still strongly smelled of horse until AFTER I ate my breakfast.

I did not go into Target with my parents, to help them pick out a leapster and games for Dylan's birthday, only to leave with way more than I planned on getting.

I did not buy Lexie leg warmers. What on Earth would she do with those?

It wasn't me who eagerly perused the Toys R Us Big Toy Book to get ideas for Christmas gifts for the kids.

I was not kind of grateful that I didn't have to take the kids to a Halloween parade on Saturday morning due to the rain. Who wants to spend the morning in their pajamas?

I did not snap at my sister for the first time ever, in the middle of a Halloween party, and then walk away crying because I hate causing conflict.

It isn't me who already has Christmas presents bought BEFORE December.

I did not secretly think that Lexie was the most adorable pink bunny ever in the Halloween parade we marched in this weekend.

It wasn't me who was taking deep breaths before I got my flu shot, and hoping I wouldn't pass out in front of my kids. What an example that would be for them! I, of course, did not complain about how much it hurt to my husband later that night.

It wasn't me who finally bought much needed shoes for myself, and then decided I couldn't pass up an adorable sweater dress.

I didn't buy Dylan TWO toys, and tell him not to tell his daddy, and then roll my eyes as Dylan told his daddy that mommy bought him two toys. Stinker!

It wasn't me who wanted to rip out my hair the other night as my baby acted like a beast, only to find out that she was cutting her 2 year molars. Nor did I get a profound sense of relief over the fact that teething was almost done for us.

Oh-and that Cherry-Chocolate dump cake that keeps disappearing from my fridge...that's not me, either!


  1. Thanks for the un-birthday wishes! Great not me!s. have a nice week!

  2. i am so glad to have found another horsey person!!! we have 6 here at our house. and i have never eaten anything after being with the horses BEFORE washing my hands. nor have i ever let one of them take a huge bite out of my apple... and keep eating the same one. gross.

  3. Oooh. I definitely DO NOT want some of that cherry dump cake. I also do NOT have most of my Christmas presents bought and wrapped! ;o)

    Your children are beautiful! Have a great week!


I love hearing from you! Let's chat!!!
