"Not Me Monday" @ 90 degrees

Not me Monday on a Tuesday:

Really this is okay.

First of all ,this is my blog and if I get to a “Not me Monday” on a Friday then, so what? I will not, however, get to Not Me Monday on a Sunday ~ I am never that far ahead…………I’m always days behind.

Second and best of all, this is a “Not Margaret Monday” and was just too funny not to post.

Sorry Sis!

But, I had to!

Here goes:

Margaret did NOT see me walking Sunday afternoon with Kathryn and Elizabeth in a back pack. She did NOT try to stop to see if we were okay……….(Yes! We were having a very happy time.) But, she couldn’t stop because a car was coming our way. She did NOT travel down the road out of site and didn’t come back.

I waited, gave her a call………….She did NOT answer saying “Oh! Sorry! Oh Gee! I’ll call you back. Every thing is okay.” I then see her Night in Shinning Armor drive past with a wave and a look of distress.

I continued walking, not knowing; as she turned around to check on me, just like a good Samaritan would, she did NOT roll off the road and did NOT roll right into a ditch.

Yes, Everything was fine and dandy! She was NOT at a 90 degree angle and did not notice right away something was a miss.

She did NOT have to have 3 grown men sit on the back of her trunk to hold the car down at ground level while she tried to back the car out! It was just luck a neighbor had a tractor for the job.

Her son was NOT very shaken and he did NOT tell me later, “My mom is a good driver. But, she is a better crasher.” He did NOT decide to drive home safely with his dad.

To our amazement the car did not have a scratch on it and the people where fine…….Well, Alex might not be. But………..there is time and therapy he will get over it.


Margaret did NOT film this video. She would have held the camera straight rather then at a 90 degree angel. When we tried to fix the video we could not……..It has come to our attention a video cannot be flipped like a picture.

This is a video of my brother,George, pushing a boat across a field into a pit of fire. He bought the boat a few years ago. He wanted to fix it up and then take it sailing. He could not work on the boat to make it sea worthy because he broke his leg badly shortly after his purchase.
The leg healed. The boat, however, did not!
Is this what happens when your “Ship comes in and your at the Airport?”

Really, if you hold your head at a 90 degree angel you can’t even tell.

Not Me! Monday!

I am not posting “Not Me! Monday” on Wednesday. I am not behind in everything, mostly my days.

I did not hit the tree in my yard Saturday night.

After all, my husband…….. who did not take it very well….. said “How could you have done that? You have only past that tree for the past 12 years.”

I think that tree is out to get me! It jumped right in front of my car. I saw it!

I think it is okay to blame the tree. It never happened.

Stupid TREE!

Not Me! Monday

Let’s Play!

I did not eat raw brownie mix one day last week. I am allergic to the wheat and I know if I have anything tasty like that, I will have cankers. Cankers hurt and they make me miserable! I also care very much about my weight and my body. Most of all, I want to be very healthy.

I did not hang on to the plant that was my sister’s birthday present from the woman in her Co-Op last week. They gave it to me because they knew …I would have rushed it right to her house that very day. I would have never put the plant in my trunk and forgotten about it, immediately. I would not have driven around with it for two 2 days only to have my daughter bring it into the house Sunday night when we had our freezing rain and snow storm. It could have died out there!

Also, I would not have had the same plant sitting in my kitchen window for 3 more days. I would have given it to my sister way before she sent out a thank you e-mail to her friends for her beautiful gift and card…….. That she had………. in her house…. because…….. I gave it, ALL, to her right away……….

I’m just like that………….GOOD, Kind & Thoughtful!

I did not forget about the Mandatory Meeting at Debate club Wednesday afternoon either. I wrote it all down in my date book and I would have looked at my book in the morning and knew that the meeting was for me. I am way too organized to forget something like that. Even if I did forget, when I noticed all the cars in the parking lot, it would have triggered my memory to the very important meeting for the parents that day……….I would never have thought I could have an hour of peace before I willingly and happily went into Judge a debate round that afternoon………… I am much to on the ball for that to happen and never think of myself.

I would have never fallen to sleep reading what Matthew finds a fascinating economics book, that he wants to share with everyone in his life. He is insistent that we all read the book and enjoy it as much as he does……I tell you, I do enjoy it….I do……I do…….I do!

That same day; I would not have been late to a very important play date with my daughter’s friend. After I sent my message about our play time, I would have stayed by the computer to see if the play time was still on. I would have never walked away, sat on the couch and fell to sleep making us an hour and a half late. We love going to play with this friend and my attention span is much better then that. Plus, I am never tired!

Now let me know what you did or did not do.

Not Me! Monday!

Welcome to Not Me! Monday!

This blog carnival was created by MckMama. With her encouragement and her blog button, I have decided to play.

It should be fun!

The idea is to post the things you know you should have done but didn’t……or the other way around!

When you’re done here, head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

Here goes! It’s time to ‘fess up!’

Not Me! Monday!

This morning, I did not get up early and enjoy the peace and quite. I would have woken everyone up nice and early to get started with their day. It snowed last night and after all I knew the kids would be excited and I would want them to get out into the fun before it melted away. We live in South Carolina and the snow just stays and stays!

When Mark told me he was going to work today, I didn’t think secretly……. “I will get on the computer and blog when he leaves.” I would not have done that, because I never waist time. I just have too much to do!

When I took my two year old daughter out into the snow, I did not get too cold really fast and tell her I had Hot Chocolate in the house. Then I did not tell her we could make a cake and that Barnie was on………after all I know the snow is rare around here.


I am much nicer then that.

I did not waste too much time under a blanket reading the book my mother gave me today. I cleaned up my house right away and it really looks great. I am not sitting in a mess thinking……….How does it get so bad so quickly? My wonderful husband and mostly my kids and are very, very neat and tidy and always puts things back where they go. I will never find them hiding from a mess……

My house is ALWAYS perfect! Because I am a REALLY GREAT house keeper!

Now it is your turn! Tell me what you have not been doing today.

Looking forward to it!
