Not Me Mondays

filed under: Miscellaneous on January 12, 2009


Dont forget to check out my life story, well, simplified version that is!, by clicking here.

While running to the grocery store to buy just milk, I did not buy a package of Nutter Butters, open them when I got home, realize they were STALE and almost broke my tooth, consider suing the company, then proceed to eat three more.  I am not that desperate for processed sugar.

I did not sit and think about all the poop I've eaten since I had kids.  Because 9 times out of ten I fail to wash my hands after I change a diaper unless there is a visible sign of poop on them.  And 9 times out of ten, I change a diaper and go eat some chocolate snack I've been specially saving for the last 32 minutes. 

I did not visit all my regular blogs this week and try to think of a way to steal everyone else's brilliant blogging ideas and pass them off as my own.  (Hence, this post) I would never do that.  I am always creative and imaginative on my own.  And never get jealous of how darn smart the rest of you are! 

My house is always clean.  There is no way that I would throw a dirty diaper (thankfully only pee) on the floor and proceed to step over it for 2 days.  I am meticulous and maintain a spotless home!

I did not consider throwing my water bottle at the TV in disgust this morning as I watched the "commentary" on the fashion of the Golden Globes. 

They said, "It was all understated elegance.  I think everyone really understand the enocomy and state of the nation."  (I heard this from two seperate 'reporters' BTW)  If those fashion 'reporters' think that those actresses got dressed with any intention of other then looking good, then they are CRAZY! 

Can you imagine?  Tina Fey standing in front of a mirror, "This dress is fabulous.  I can't belive how good I look!  But, wait, no, I don't think I should wear it.  The state of the economy is poor, I better just grab that other so-so dress and call it a day."

How have you NOT behaved this past week?  Can't wait to see!

God bless!

    Thanks for the morning chuckle!
    I’m glad you’re joining me on the memory verses. Thanks for reminding me about praying for Obama too, I need to add that to my list so I’ll be more likely to remember.

    I love these! I get to see a side of you that is real. And, no, I did NOT just eat two Reese eggs that I hid in my purse so no one else here would eat them : )

  • Liz says:

    Once again, hilarous!!! You are so funny!

    Love it!! I am envious of everyones intelligence and ability to be clever in their blogs as well. AND I thought about copying MckMama with the bio as well. But it sounds like too much work.
    Happy Monday!

    I LOVE the brutal honesty of NOT ME MONDAYS!
    I did not stay in bed with my daughter talking until 10:30 this morning. Nope, ’cause that would mean we stayed in our pajamas until after lunch, and that would never happen at my house; the rule is: no lunch unless you are dressed. So we did not eat lunch in our jammies.

    I am so happy that she started these and you continue to do them weekly. Nothing comes off the top of my head as to what I “didn’t do”, but I have a list of what I did! Thanks for always providing a smile and a laugh. Take care of you and yours always,

    We want you to be you – need you to be you. Otherwise, we’d miss out of the Amanda God created you to be. That would be a loss to the whole Body. Your life, you present circumstances, and, yes, your past, are part of what gives you your unique message. You’re delightful. Do come visit our blogs. But please continue to be That Special Amanda who God thought up – He did such a good job!

    Thank you for the Golden Globes comment. There was no penny pinching from the stars and never will be. They have money to burn whether we do or not. 🙁

    Found your blog through MckMama’s. Great Not Me’s. I’ve had my moments of desperation for refined sugar as well. Rock hard gummy bears are always a treat 🙂

    I can so relate to the poop and the stealing great blogging ideas! I usually wipe my hands with a baby wipe, but I’m not sure if that does it all!
    Have a blessed week!

    Love it! 🙂 We are very much alike…nice to now I’m not alone!: )
    Have a great day and STAY WARM!
