Not Me! Monday

Well, it's time for our free therapy session! 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.

But, for me....

The internet has not replaced the television as something I could totally be addicted to...if I allowed it. I am not an information junkie who could spend all my time absorbing information, some of it useful, some not so much.

I did not happen upon a ridiculous website where my first thought was who on earth would take the time to compile almost 2000 discarded grocery lists? And even worse, who would take the time to look through them? I did not end up joining the ranks of the ridiculous as I did not spend an inordinate amount of time perusing the same grocery lists I mocked. I did not finally say to myself, "what on earth are you doing?" and shut the computer and go to bed. But, not before copying this one:


I did not prove to myself (and now those on the www) that I really do have a problem...when as writing this post, I did not take just a few more minutes looking at just a few more grocery lists.....what's wrong with me?

My husband's birthday was not last week. It does not feel like a month ago since so much has been going on this week. I did not wake up at 3am to our sweet cocker spaniel running in and out of every room in the house like Taz.

I did not find these remains which explained the craziness:


I did not end up staying awake doing laundry at 3am because I was not at all worried about my dog having eaten chocolate and wanted to make sure she was okay.

I did not insist that my family not walk on the carpet because I finally found the time to vacuum and wanted the floor to stay looking nice. I would never be so silly as to ask my husband if he would please jump from one set of tile to the other so as to only leave one footprint in the middle of the floor.

I did not then move on to figure out how I could keep my family from wearing clothes as well since for the first time since 2001 our clothes hampers are empty......until tomorrow.

What did you not do this week?

Found you from MckMama. I am a long time follower of hers, but I just found you (the title of your blog got me curious) I am formerly CountryMom of the CityMom, CountryMom blog, but have started a new blog...drop by if you get a chance! The grocery list was hysterical, but who am I to talk going through all the Not Me's...

I love your honesty. I don't know if I can admit to some of the insane things I have "not" done. Always entertaining, Kristin. Miss you!

Hello dear friend! I've heard about that book of lost grocery lists. I checked out the website and LOVE #14 "Dinner for the In-Laws" right on top and Tums one of the items on the list. You and I are lucky to have wonderful in-laws, but I could imagine... hilarious!

Love you and miss you!

Oh, I do like your list of what you did not do, and may I say that I did not just read what Destiny said and then pop over to have a squint at #14!
