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.

Last Week on “Not Me Monday” I promised that I would not be working like a mad woman to get my house in order moments before fire hubby came back from Idaho.
Well of course, I did not do that. So, when my husband caught an EARLIER flight, I absolutely did not begin to run around the house with a basket gathering up this and that (do not think clutter here!). Not me!

I do not have a huge basket of “this and that” (no, not former clutter, gathered up 7 days ago) that is still hiding in the back of a closet waiting to be sorted and put away. I feel a need to remind you here, I am not that sort of a home maker, oh no, not me!

With Fire Hubby out of town, and in desperate need to work my shift, I did not drop my kids off at a dear friend’s house at 6AM last Sunday. Not me.
(Yes, that was 6 AM on a Sunday if you hadn’t noticed. I know, you all want to be my dear friends, don’t you!… don’t you?...silence…oh dear)

Yes, we are going to have to talk about how I am NOT absent minded at times…

When trying to get off to work last week, I did not:

Set the house alarm
Lock up
Drive half way down the street
Where is my purse?
Back to house.
Turn off alarm.
Get purse.
Turn on alarm.
Lock house.
Back in car- around block.
Where are those important papers?
Back to house.
Turn off alarm.
Find papers (Where can they be? Of course in huge basket of former clutter, dig,dig… FOUND).
Turn on alarm.
Lock house.
Drive around block.
Do I have Alzheimers? Where is my phone?
Back to house.
Turn off alarm.
Find phone next to computer… hmmm, I wonder if I have any new comments, look at blog-NOT ME!
Turn on alarm.
Lock house.
Back in car and off to work.
Not me, no, if this were possibly true, you might actually worry about me. No, NOT ME!

I am sure that I will not even be able to post next Not Me Monday, because I am just so in control of everything around me!

Ha ha - love it. I am sure glad you did not do those things! You might think you were going nuts! I tend to have a similar cleaning style to yours too. :-)

I have a bag from the car I still need to go through. I will not tell you how long it has been either. =) I'm tired...

I always wonder if my neighbors across the street set up a bet each weekend and sit at their front window to see how many times I go in and out the front door for things I've forgotten to do or grab or say to my hubby/kids before I actually make it out of the drive way. I have also been known to make a big circle around the block calling my house because I forgot something asking my oldest to "run it out to me". I bet my departures could be very entertaining from across the street.
