 Not me Monday...

Welcome to 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. It's like therapy - it's brutal honestly in a form we can handle - denial. *wink* I most certainly did not accidentally flush a pair of Jay's messy underwear down the toilet as I was trying to rinse them - and after a moment of panic I did not feel sheer relief. Because that probably wouldn't be good for the toilet. So I don't know who would do such a thing. And it wasn't me who allowed three little munchkins to take two baths in one day, for the simple reason that it keeps them blissfully occupied for an amount of time that no other activity can. I am shy and quiet around people I don't know, so I couldn't have asked a complete stranger permission to photograph some of the beautiful decorating elements in her home that I had accompanied a friend into. If I ever did any thing like that I would probably get a "crazy lady reputation". Oh wait... Oh, and you thought that was ME in the beat up grey truck full of wood that kept stalling out at the stop signs. Ha ha... I don't have any issues with letting up too quickly on the clutch. And I definitely don't loose my focus when there are vehicles behind me. I couldn't forget every thing I know about a manual transmission when I'm under pressure. I'm 28 years old for goodness sakes. Wasn't me who let the 2 year old run around in nothing but what the good Lord gave him only to later find him resting happily on our comfy chair... in a nice warm wet spot. If that had happened I wouldn't be sharing it on my blog for all potential visitors to read. Because then they might change their minds about coming over - or at least avoid the comfy chair at all costs. I could tell them about the scotch guard on all of our furniture and how easily it cleans up - had that actually happened. Why would I laugh hysterically while Dave photographed our innocent unsuspecting child who had a particular finger sticking out? I wouldn't do that. I would stop him instead of laughing with him. And I never get a giddy high from 50% off of already Clearance priced clothes and shoes. Would my heart beat faster for a pair of cream and brown shoes with peep toes and three inch heels for $4? That would be a little geeky. Can a receipt that says "$80 saved" while I only paid $37 make me breathless and giggly for the rest of the day? Ha! That would be silliness. Wasn't me who got teary when Jay and Dave presented me with a plushy soft towel wrap for my birthday and Jay declared "Mom, we got this for you because it is soft - and mom you are so soft!" Only a sentimental sap would let such things get to them. So what have you not been up to lately?

Great post!
I would never go a day without showering. And no I did not forget to brush my teeth this morning. I do plan to get four loads of laundry done today and I will not park it in front of the TV to watch the bachelor tonight.
I won't admit to throwing poopy underwear in the garbage because it's just too gross to clean...because that would be wasteful. (ha ha wasteful...it's WASTE-ful. ;)
And no, I'm not laughing at how clever I am with that last little pun.
Happy Monday! :)

I'm just impressed that you were trying to wash out the underwear. If there's poop involved I just throw 'em away ;)
