Not Me Monday

Another Monday has rolled around, and I really need a therapy session this week! Head on over to MckMama's blog to join in on this blog carnival. I know I haven't done a lot of things this week. What haven't YOU done?

I have not been completely stressed out all week, after receiving bad news on Monday morning. I am not feeling horribly guilty about releasing my stress in the form of yelling. I am not constantly wondering what I can do to release this stress, so I can get back to normal.

I am not trying to figure out how people with 3 young kids are able to fit them in a car, rather than an SUV or minivan. We had a rental car this week, and nobody could even fit in the backseat, because the TWO car seats took up the entire seat.

My husband did not run out of deodorant, use mine, and then admit to me that my deodorant works better than his!

I did not get completely sucked into a book this week, and stayed up really late several nights this past week to read it.

I did not make my kids go outside in 20 degree weather, because I couldn't stand being cooped up inside anymore. The following day was not almost 70 degrees and beautiful. I am not overwhelmingly thrilled that the weather is finally nice, and we haven't taken full advantage of it, by spending every day outside.

When Lexie says her name, it does not sound like Sexy. Nor does she ask, "Where Dyl doh?" (Doh is for go.) Hmmm...use your imagination on that one.

My car did not cost almost $600 to be inspected. I was not furious about that! It did not cost an additional $2000 to be repaired after being hit. Thank heavens that it is being paid by the other insurance company!

When Dylan and Grant were gone on Saturday, and Lexie was sleeping, I most definitely did something for me, like nap or read. I did not alphabetize CD's.

Dylan did not try to keep 2 caterpillars as pets this weekend. I was not completely grossed out, just thinking about them living in my house.

We did not go to bed at 5 AM Sunday morning, after game night with my family, and some friends. We did not leave my sister's house at 3:45, then realize it was really 4:45 because of the time change. The kids were not so tuckered out from playing with their cousins and staying up late, that they slept in until 12:15 and 1:30. I was not COMPLETELY thrilled to be able to sleep.


  1. Great Not Me's. And yes, I definitely know about that gotta get out of the house feeling, regardless of weather.


  2. $600?!?! That is crazy!
    I am sorry to hear about the bad news. I got my layoff notice last week, and it is hard not to deal with it w/out being crabby. Bad news sucks.

  3. I know what you mean about fitting carseats in a car. I only have 1 child now, but I got a Highlander so that when we do have more they all fit!!

  4. Isn't it amaizing how a book can draw you in and you find your self eager to turn the page to find out what is going to happen

    great not me mondays

  5. LOL! The Lexie sexy one was hysterical!! Thanks for the laugh!!


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