Not Me Monday




MckMama said it best this week.......


Not Me! Monday was born out of a desire to admit some of our imperfections and reveal a few moments we'd rather forget.


Why?

Well, for one, because it's just plain fun to pretend that we really did not do the things that we actually did do. And, two, because reading through great tales of other people's Not Me! Mondays each week is a great way to level the playing field. We're all human, we all take embarrassing shortcuts, and so we may as well show each other that we're all in good company!


If you want to join in on the fun visit MckMama's blog!


OKie DOkie.....so here are my not me's for the week:

I am not the least bit excited that school starts tomorrow and that Christmas break is OVER!

While waiting to take our family portrait at church for the directory, I did not sit in an "invisible" chair, hit my hip and arm on an actual chair that was next to my "invisible" chair and then hit my head on the post behind me.....I do not have some really really large bruises....
I did not wonder if the photographers and church members thought I was "Sippin' the Sauce Communion Wine"...(although that my have been a good idea in retrospect)
Note to self: Do not attempt family portraits until the youngest child is at least 5

I did not spend New Year's Eve texting back and forth with my two little brothers. If so, I certainly did not take any pictures with my cell phone (of old pictures of nights out on the town with my brothers-) and send the pictures to them. We certainly did not LOL (in texting terms) at these pictures. Nope, because I was definitely out whooping up the night with my husband and not sitting at home watching TV and engaging in "text wars" with my brothers!

I did not decide not to post any of said pictures because they were too embarassing and you all would think less of me...
Nope! I didn't post any of the pictures because I couldn't find them.....ahem ;)


I did not, not one single time, make fun of my husband while he wheeled himself around on his "knee walker"...I also did not laugh at him, nor tease him mercilessly, when he requested that his "knee walker" have a basket on the front.....

And since I didn't do any of those things, I also did not threaten to add some "embellishments" to his "knee walker"---ya know...things that a person like me would never think of......things like a bell, a plastic bike license plate with his name on it, and some streamers for his handle bars.

Prince Charming did not refuse my request to take a posed picture of him on the knee walker for my blog....he didn't think that was too cheesy...He also didn't say that if I wanted to get a "natural" action shot tomorrow that I could post it....tee hee.....(Isn't that sweet?)



I did not change the lead song of my blog to "Boomer Sooner" in anticipation and excitement for the National Championship game on Thursday......ya know...to get all of ya'll in the mood for some football....

I did not love Hootin' Anni's comment from this post, where she called Coach Craig (my cousin) a "cutie patootie" and then threatened to become a hockey fan....

I did not love the comment even more when I visited her blog and realized she was a fiesty mature lady!

Seriously though....you oughta visit her she is hilarious!


I am not looking forward to the kids going back to school tomorrow....oh wait! Did I already say that??? oooops.☺


That's all I got for this week......see ya'll next week when the Sooners are National Champions!
(I am not at all obnoxious about my Sooners....☺)

I am cracking up about the kids going back to school...I put that on my list too. That knee scooter/walker is a hoot! I think a basket would dress it up a bit. LOL

I am not still biter that Alabama got beat by Florida in the SEC Championship game. But, the music on your blog... it does make me sad b/c I was SO sure a few weeks ago that this was going to be BAMA's year. Good luck with the game!!
