I am NOT doing a Not Me Monday post on Tuesday. That would be lame.
It is NOT me who was without my colleague last night to run my bereaved parent support group :(
The group itself actually went really well. Great connections…great sharing.
However, in my hurry to get out of the creepy abandoned place while my participants were still in the parking lot, I did not leave the chairs in a circle and the lights still on.
Afraid of the dark? NOT me!
Then, as I exited into the dark parking lot…I did NOT find that everyone had driven off…holy moly…I did NOT say DARK parking lot. (no, I am NOT afraid of the dark)
So, I did NOT proceed to hurry towards my car only to suddenly find myself flying through the air and then towards the ground…CRASH! (Who put that concrete parking barrier there?)
I did NOT land on my knee and feel instant pain. All of the stuff I was holding was flung out of my hands and onto the asphault.
So much for moving quickly to my car!
Oh yeah, and who in their right mind would use a crystal bowl that they got for their wedding as an bowl for their support group refreshments…of course, NOT me! So, this lovely crystal bowl is NOT laying in the parking lot broken in a million pieces with me laying next to it in the DARK (don’t make fun of me…I am NOT afraid of the dark!)
Now, despite wanting to lay there and cry, I did NOT want to get the heck out of Dodge QUICKLY. So I gather my stuff (and my pride) and limp over to my car and throw everything in. I am NOT moaning at this point as I am trying to get out of this dark parking lot at 9:30 at night…ALONE! (oh, and I definitely am not hanging out in a creepy parking lot picking up glass! Sorry, REALLY, just not happening!)
Thankfully after the initial pain wore off, I only have a scraped knee ( I do NOT look like a 5 year old with my knee bandaid) and a bruised ego…and a broken crystal bowl that I did NOT use for my support group refreshments.
(Oh, and Leandra, you are NOT allowed to take any more days off from working with me & the group…look what happens when you leave me alone!)
So this LAME, NOT AFRAID of the DARK, support group facilitating, wife.mom.nurse is not posting this NOT ME MONDAY on Tuesday…I just wouldn’t do such a thing!
