Not Me Monday!


Thanks to Mckmama, I now feel like I have something to look forward to on Mondays...her fabulous blog carnival "Not Me Monday" where we can all share the things we would never admit to doing...Here goes!

After deciding a few weeks ago that I need to get my butt in gear and work some extra hours for our mini-vaca's this summer, I did NOT decide that I've had enough and I'm burnt out from working extra hours. I also did NOT think that maybe we don't need to go to all of the weddings this summer...

While at our Kick-off Meeting for March of Dimes I did NOT get tearful when the Ambassador family shared their story of their previous 24 weeker who is now a little over 2. I was NOT completely excited when after I walked in he looked at me over his little glasses and said "HI Mrs. Not-so-Domesticated!" (Ok he said my real name but I wrote that for blogging purposes). I also did NOT completely blank out during everyone elses speaches because I was too busy watching all of our NICU grads running around. I DON'T really have a great job...

I did NOT spend hours on a poster presentation with Little S this week for our Conference. I am NOT totally impressed by our really awesome chest cavity that we built on the poster as a visual aid for our disease. I also am NOT totally annoyed that a poster we spent hours on, other people spent minutes on and are getting the same credit.

I was NOT completely intimidated at our Benefit for Bryson meeting on Thursday. I did NOT let all of those opinionated "helpers" walk all over me. I did NOT want to quit as the chair of the event, just a little.

The hubby and I did NOT have a little or big spat one night while I was at work. (when I work a lot of days together or a lot of overtime, we might get a little nasty with each other) I was NOT thouroughly mad that he had made plans for an out-of-town overnight excursion and not tell me about it until the night before. I was NOT so mad that I didn't even want to give him the girlscout cookies I had bought him when I got home that morning...(he didn't go btw, and I shared my cookies)

I did NOT ask the hubby if I could go on a roadtrip to Florida with my bff Cookie next weekend...he did NOT ask me if I remembered our fight mentioned above...

We did NOT have an exhausting weekend playing cards and bowling with our friends. It was NOT super fun, and we are NOT huge dorks...



I am NOT exhausted thinking about my week ahead, and its only Monday...

Well it's a good thing that I didn't do any of these things this past week. What didn't you do??

So, you've got some incredible benefit planners on board, huh? I guess that can be both good and bad! A road trip to Florida sounds awesome right now!

BTW, my son is wondering how tall and large a Navy ship can be, could you hook me up? I thought your Sailor hubby might know.

i really like that you yelled at him for wanting to go on a trip, and then asked to do the same thing.
makes me giggle.

I'm impressed by the cookie sharing. I'm holding onto the hope that someone nice from the states will send oh I dunno 50 boxes in our care packages. =D I will not share these with husband mind you...I need to eat them all...it's important.

I don't think bowling is dorky at all. Any time spent with friends is awesome. Florida sounds great right about now. It's been in the 20's all day so far where I am. Spring would be very welcome.

I love going bowling with friends, dorky or not!

I woulda been mad too if my fiance told me the night before going on a trip but I love that you asked to do the same thing - that totally sounds like something I would do!

Great not-me's! I don't think I could have paid attention either while watching all those little ones run around.

Happy Monday!

You have such a precious heart and it must be so exciting to see those little ones again, all big and healthy!

BTW, loved your not me's. My hubby and I fought so much our first year of marriage (sometimes about silly things like toilet paper and toothpaste, lol).
