Not Me! Monday

Welcome to my version of "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 considered not doing a Not Me! Monday because I was so excited about my first blog giveaway. I can’t stay away from this exercise. It is just too freeing and fun to be honest about the craziness in my life. So, here I am again. If you ask me, I will deny every bit of the following.

It was not me that thought it was really funny when my 5 year-old told me that the lady in front of us in the supermarket had mean eyebrows. I did not check to make sure that she wasn’t listening, check out her arched eyebrows and chuckle with my son. I didn’t skip the kindness lesson and laugh with my son -not me!

It was not me who dropped a measuring cup of Ketchup all over my kitchen stove and the floor. I was not the one who made the mess – no way, not me!!

And, since I did not drop the ketchup, I certainly did not take these pictures to alleviate my frustration.





It was not me who spent five minutes looking for my keys this morning when they were in my pocket. Oh my goodness – who is that absent-minded? I would only do that if I hadn’t had my coffee yet. Thank goodness, I can say, not me!

I did not start to put the milk in the microwave because I was holding my coffee cup. My hand does not automatically go to the microwave if I am standing near it with my cup because I am so used to having to reheat my coffee. That would be sort of ridiculous. When that didn’t happen, I didn’t laugh out loud – not me!

I didn’t decide to go clean myself up one evening, telling my husband, “I am going to go try to cover up the frazzled stay-at-home mom look” only to discover that my shirt had been on inside out all day long. I did not wear my shirt inside out all day long, nooooo, I couldn't have done that -not me!

I am not planning on spending lots of my evening free-time checking out the giveaways at the Bloggy Giveaways Carnival. That might be a waste of time. I wouldn’t do that on the slim chance that I might win – not me! (Be sure to check out my giveaway.)

Even as a frazzled housewife with your shirt on inside out- you look beautifully stunning :)

Awww, about the comment above. Yum...that ketchup looks divine, on your floor and not mine. LOL
I hate when I drop things and make a mess:)

Jill (Sneaky Momma) said...

I've been known to unknowingly wear a shirt inside-out on more than one occasion. :)
Great Not Me's!

Carey-Life in the Carpool Lane said...

Great list! The ketchup and keys could so NOT happen to me.

I definitely am NOT going to check out the giveaway carnival because I might get addicted.

Sweet comment from the hubby.

Hope you don't mind but I'm following you ;)

I'm glad you didn't skip the not me's because you sure had good ones! Oh man, what a week you've had!

Trisha said...

Hilarious! All these just goes to show that you are one busy mama!

The ketchup! I bet that was fun to clean up!

I just grabbed the loaf pan right out of the oven because I was in a hurry and not paying attention... then 5 seconds later, I did it again!

Beth E. said...

Wow...your hubby is definitely working on some brownie points!

I've never worn my shirt inside out, but I once wore my shorts backwards, never realizing it until I tried to put my hand in one of the pockets! lol

Ketchup...hahaha! That was a good one! Sorry...not laughing AT you laughing WITH you. You ARE laughing, aren't you? ;o)

Great NM's!

seriously? said...

OMG...that ketchup fiasco looks messy and I am so glad that you did NOT take pictures of it for documentation purposes. :)

Love your list and I will be checking on what you didn't do again next week. :)

Girl, I loved this! BTW, I have worn my shirt inside out before too. Once I was wearing a sweatshirt (I was cold) and I put it on backward with Mickey Mouse on the back....

Loved the ketchup, what we you making?

McCrakensx4 said...

Too funny! Love the whole dropping thing...cuz that is so me! Wish my hubby would say that 'bout me!

Lynnette Kraft said...

Awwww, your husband is so sweet. I also have NOT lost my keys this week only to find them in my hand. I do this all the time while carrying in the groceries.l

Alicia said...

That totally sucks spilling something like that! Reminds me when I dropped an egg on the floor last week! Gross!!

Kimberly said...

i DID NOT almost gag when i DIDN'T see the pictures that you DIDN'T post of ketchup all over the place. NOT ME! i DID NOT spend hours yesterday checking out all the bloggy giveaways, NOR did i leave comments on all the ones giving away Starbucks GC's. NOT ME! and I most certainly DO NOT have over 300 deleted unread follow-up comments from your post and Wilbur the Bear's post because I accidently chose to receive follow up comments! NOT ME!!!!!
and lastly this is NOT the second time I've typed out this comment just to make sure you had a funny comment from me on this post of yours! NOT ME!!!!!!

Jane Anne said...

Kim - are you getting follow up comments on this one?
I did not wonder all night if you went to this post and saw the Ketchup pictures. I did not tell Seth that I couldn't believe you didn't have a comment. I do not feel SOOOO much better now that you gave me a response. And, I am not smiling really big because you were checking out giveaways all night just like me (how late were you up?? I think I might have gone to bed at 1. I am just about crazy, I think.)

Melissa, Multi-Tasking Mama said...

I have never done the milk in the microwave, cereal in the refrigerator type of thing- not me. And aren't we bloggers hilarious? Everything is a Kodak moment.
