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.

Another week. Another list of things I did not do/say/think.

* I absolutely did not watch "Rock of Love" last night and witness women doing things I did not even know were possible. I don't enjoy that show. It is trashy and I do not find that entertaining.

* I did not channel surf during commercials to watch "The Bachelor". I wasn't excited that they played last weeks episode again because I missed it.

* I did not actually enjoy hosting my 7 year old's birthday party on the weekend. I also did not enjoy the Mad Scientist that came to the party to do cool experiments for the boys. I am a grown up. Seeing her make fire and gas was not exciting at all.




* I do not allow my teething daughter to chew on spoons to ease her discomfort. We have approximately 203 teething toys in our home and I give her those at all times. Ok, I don't because she prefers the spoons.



* I am not extremely happy that my 7 year old received ALOT of Lego for his birthday because he spends hours putting the stuff together and does not complain that he is bored and has nothing to do. I do not secretly hope he becomes an architect when he grows up so he can make alot of money and design his mom and dad a house! That is just selfish and I am sooo not a selfish person.



* I am not giddy because I now have in my possession the Photoshop program I have wanted for months. I am not terrified to use it because I am a computer genius and find any sort of computer program easy. Ok, not really. I am terrified.


* I did not purchase a huge bag of Mini Eggs at Costco. If I did buy them, I would not hide them in a very high cupboard so my children can't find them. I also would not hide them when I eat them under a magazine so they don't see them and ask for some. Only bad mothers do that.


* In a moment of chaos (and weakness) I did not tell my children to "leave me alone". I am not PMS-ing and if I was I would keep it well hidden and be kind at all times to my wonderful kids.


* Studley did not run away two more times in the last 5 days....right in front of me. If he did run away he did not turn back and look at me as I yelled his name and offered up some treats. I did not secretly hope that some nice person would find him and keep him for his own. What kind of dog mommy would think like that? Certainly not me. If he did run away and then come back home 2 hours later, I wasn't secretly excited to see him and I certainly did not shower him with hugs and kisses.


* I did not run out to the Pet Store to purchase a tie- out so Studley stays home. Studley does not bark constantly while tied to the darn thing. He is quite happy to be tied to a tractor after exploring the community for the last 9 months. No problem at all.


That's all for today folks! It is Family Day here in our wonderful province in our wonderful country. I am going to go enjoy the family.

Cute list! Rock of Love, huh? I've seen snippets and it looks like a train wreck, the type where you can hardly look away, because your eyes cannot believe what they are seeing!
Have a great week...

Juls said...

....i also DO NOT watch rock of love.... by the way, I loved your not me's...

Kelly Deneen said...

hehe. You are too funny. Love the legos - awesome!

Oh Boy...Oh Boy...Oh Boy said...

I too did 'not' watch Rock of Love and love it. I also do 'not' watch Tool Academy.
And I <3 photoshop, still learning but willing to offer any help I can.

Ha ha ha, our little BOOMER was always running away, so we did the tie thing too. That works great when the kids don't feel sorry for him and let him go! I did not also have the same sad thoughts of "If you don't like us, just stay gone!" However, he's now been gone for almost 2 months and boy do I feel guilty. I still secretly hope he shows back up.

I did not watch Rock of Love either and I can't wait for the next episode.

Cracked up at the hiding candy and eating it under a magazine so you don't have to share with kids! I DO NOT do that either, nor do I sneak it into the bathroom (and pretend I'm tinkling) to eat it in private!

I love ROL... it's like a train wreck with big boobs.

I don't know how you feel about things, but I have an electric dog fence we don't need, or use. You would just need to get the wire for it. I have the collars and the box.

Love your Not Me post! And Legos? We are just discovering them around here. Tractor Boy was never impressed but has decided they are okay to play with. Yay!

Jenni Jiggety said...

Oh any mom worth her salt has a secret candy stash somewhere in the house...and she also watched Rock Of Love while she eats it.

Great List! I'm terrified of photo editing programs too. Well, ok, just adobe. It terrifies me. Because i am not a genius. Really. i'm not. Not if adobe is involved.
