Not Me Monday

I love Monday’s thanks to MckMama and all the other gals that participate in Not Me Monday.

~I did not milk my birthday (Thursday) all week long by eating too much, spending too much and relaxing too much. After all, you only turn thirty once why would you waste time enjoying it?

~I did not compare my son to Elvis due to his incredibly fast growing side burns. This did not seriously offend him yet also motivate him to later ask his dad to cut his hair. This did not make me think that the reverse psychology that is motherhood is such an awesome power to behold. It’s not like I misuse it or anything.

~I did not text my little brother as my NFL team kicked his NFL team’s rearend. I am not the type of girl that likes football, let alone the type of girl that rubs a loss in her brother’s face, let alone the type of girl that enjoys every minute of all the above. Shame on that type of girl!

~I did not have to slam on my brakes and swerve to avoid hitting someone backing out of their driveway on the way home from church yesterday. The first thought that entered my mind was not “Thank God we didn’t get in an accident, I haven’t shaved my legs in two weeks”. How could that be the first thing you think after avoiding a near crisis?

~I did not cry like a baby when our church showed Fireproof, the movie, this weekend. I had not seen it twice already so there would be no reason for me to be moved or nervous during certain scenes.

So, how about you, my friends? What did you NOT do this week? Please share!


  1. That is a cute meme! I don’t know what I not did this past week. I’d have to think about it.

  2. Named Alicia says:

    LOL about the shaved legs thought. I laughed so loud my son asked “what’s so funny.” Mean mommy that I am did not say “nothing, you wouldn’t understand”. Nope not me. I am always completely honest with my son!

    Thanks for the laugh my friend!
    I hope you have a great week!

  3. Melissa Here is a link to what Swap Meals are all about on my blog.
    Thanks for stopping by. I am going to look at your blogs in a bit.

  4. He And Me + 3 says:

    I was cracking up at the unshavin legs. i totally shaved my legs yesterday…after not for over two weeks too. Loved your list.

  5. Wifey Dessert says:

    I LOVE the shaved my legs part.. that is totally NOT me!!

  6. I have to say, this is one of my favorite posts of yours. I look forward to seeing what you didn’t do all week.

  7. Great Not Me! Monday list. Man, it’s been longer since I last shaved my legs! Don’t tell anyone though πŸ™‚

  8. Just visiting other “Not Me!’s”…and thanks for the laugh! I can relate to your thoughts of car accidents and unshaven legs – I get concerned when we go on a trip leaving behind an untidy house…what if something happens to us and God forbid people see our house a mess! πŸ™‚ (and I did NOT just remove my first post due to typos!)

  9. Hmmm, sounds like me about the shaving the legs thing!

  10. Carey-Life in the Carpool Lane says:

    Too funny! The one about the near-accident made me laugh out loud…great list!

  11. Yeah…I decided to shave after 3 weeks…it took me 30 minutes! Darn winter! That would be one of the things I thought about too. :o)

  12. Jane Anne says:

    I cannot understand loving football at all…nope, not me! Love that you texted your brother! That’s love! I enjoyed your list.

  13. I am not that kind of girl either….the rub it in your face, because my team beat your team kinda girl….not me!
    Great list….made me chuckle.

  14. Thanks for stopping by my blog! The shaved legs thing is so funny. And I totally have NOT thought something similar when I’ve come close to an accident. Oh and I’m NOT the type of girl who likes football either!

  15. Thanks for commenting on my very first Not Me Monday! πŸ™‚

    The Wii was giving me fits on my balance and it said I could use a stable person or thing. So I grabbed the nearest thing ~ the Swiffer Pole … and said “Hey Stable.” :o)

    I’d love to have you come back and give my blog a read! πŸ™‚

  16. Thanks for visiting my blog! I had to edit my not me post – I should have known better than to post something that blatant about an employee! Sorry! I had to delete your comment also! Please leave a comment again sometime!

  17. OMGosh! Those would all be absolutely hysterical had they ACTUALLY happened.

    Good ones!
