Not Me!

filed under: Miscellaneous on January 19, 2009


There are new rules for this… so I hope I get it right.  Please visit the original Not Me, Mckmama.

I did not forget what today was an sit at my computer and wonder where everyone was.  I am on top of things!  I am sure I looked at a calender and acknowledged the man that this day is in honor of.

I have total respect for others.  I most certainly did not nurse my baby in public just because I could.  I always want everyone to be as comfortable as possible.   

I absolutely did not spend every second of my kids' naps and then some 'working' on my blog this weekend.  I would not be so vain as to spend hours making my blog different.  I am a good wife and mother and actually spend time with my family!

I did not decide to skip out of church this morning, even though my hubby was going to go.  I did not send my oldest off with him, then sit at home with my baby and Parker.  Then, half way through the service, I did not realize that I forgot to send the double stroller with hubby, even though I had promised it to someone at church.  So I did not have to show up at the end of church with said stroller.  And I most certainly did not pretend like I had been there all along.  I would never do that.

I did not have a mini panic attack as I realized I have not taken pictures of my kids for almost 4 days.  Audrey is huge already and I have no proof! 


(is she mocking me???)

I am a concerned citizen and patriotic and try to honor those in in positions of authority, so I would never try to avoid anything and everything on TV related to the inauguration.  I would never get twitches and nervous ticks every time I hear the new president speak because it grates on my nerves.  That would be un-American!  And I would never admit that to a bunch of people that adore the ground he walks on!  I have to much tact for that.

What are you not doing?

God bless!

And if any of you are visitng from Mckmama's, whatever you do, do NOT leave a little comment love.

You may have noticed a change… I finally got around to personalizing my blog a bit!  With the AMAZING talents of Debi over at Just As I Am.  What do ya think?  Thanks so much Debi.  You are wonderful.

    You’re too funny and I’m glad you enjoy my post too! You just reminded me. We were leaving a restaurant on Saturday night and there was a woman breast feeding. My poor assuming husband didn’t realize what she was doing and thought the kid had a deformity — with a head the shape of a figure eight. LOL!!! After he realized what he was staring at, he almost fainted. lol!!! I need to remember that for next weeks “Not Me Monday” or maybe just post it as a funny.

  • Amanda Rettke says:

    lol  I can just about imagine what the woman was thinking!! LOL 

  • Christy says:

    Emma and I are sitting here “ahhhhing” at Audrey! LOL I’m definitely with you on the President thing as you read in my blog! I will work on my Not Me Monday post once the kids are in bed. You had a great one! Oh I skipped church yesterday too :X Emma wasn’t feeling good, still isn’t. 🙁

  • Christy says:

    OH forgot to say, I have always breastfed out in public and if it makes others uncofortable, oh well! That’s a definite perk in Germany/Europe people don’t look at our breasts as only a sexual object, it drives me up the wall.

  • olivia says:

    i don’t know you but i’m totally with you on the avoiding anything and everything on the t.v. the next 2 days! MUTE button getting used for sure. i think we’ll go out to dinner tonite. that’s what we did on election night. denial and avoidance is all i have right now. peace and acceptance? yeah, i don’t think so. ~olivia

    Great Not Me’s! Cool blog, beautiful baby, and I too am NOT wishing that tomorrow’s inaguration and Obama hoopla finally die down.

  • Amanda Rettke says:

    Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment Olivia!  I was really thinking I was the only one who was not into this whole inauguration thing… I hope you have a blessed evening and a wonderful day tomorrow!
    God bless-

  • Christy says:

    ROFLMBO you’re the hoot, thinking I’m supermom, ha!! Spend a day with me girl and you’d run screaming, holding your babies tight! LOL There are so many days I seriously think I yell more than I talk in a normal level!

  • Janis says:

    Great Not Me’s. 🙂 I think I have done or done something similar to each one you mentioned! 🙂 lol
    And I most certainly am not letting Elizabeth cry as I comment. 🙂
    Have a great day!

    I love the new look of the blog.
    The Not me mondays are great. Also I am with you on the whole inauguration thing. I really am not in the mood to listen to someone that bugs the crap out of me. So you are not alone.

  • Lindsey says:

    I too am NOT going to avoid the teacher’s lounge tomorrow, listening to the radio, turning on the tv or doing anything else that might put me into the presence of anyone talking about the inaguration. I’m NOT proud to say that either! 🙂

  • Jennifer says:

    Everything that you “didn’t” do this week is exactly the things that I “wouldn’t” do! lol
    You have one beautiful baby.
    I am off to read the rest of your blog. This is the first blog post of yours I have read.

  • Alicia says:

    Audrey is so cute! Great Not Me’s…I hear you on the President thing. I am tired of hearing about it. I am just ready to get it over with. Have a great week!

  • Momma Hug says:

    Great Not Me’s! I’m not totally avoiding anything on tv that has to do with the inauguration either. Nope. And I don’t get an awful feeling when thinking of our new president and all the ‘changes’ he will bring. I have complete trust in our government.
    Thanks for stopping by our blog.

  • Karen says:

    And I? Am NOT laughing at all these things you didn’t do.
    Had to read it to my kids because they wouldn’t just believe me that, “This lady wrote some funny things.” I am NOT quite sure they got the humor…*grin*
    Thanks for the laughs.
