Not Me! Monday

Since I have recently joined the blogging world, I have become obsessed very interested in reading other peoples blogs. I am amazed at how well people write. Maybe one day I too will be that interesting.

Well, back to my post. I follow a blog called My Charming Kids that I found on Morgan Kate's page, and this woman is amazing. She has 4 kids, ages 4 & under, and her very open & honest stories always make me smile. On Mondays she titles her blog 'Not me! Monday'. It is here that she provides stories from her week of things she absolutely would never do...or at least things she can't believe she did do. It is this post that I always look forward to the most because I usually end up rolling on the floor in laughter. She encourages her followers to share their own 'Not me!' stories, something I never even considered participating in until I was getting ready for work one day last week. When I caught myself doing something absolutely rediculous, I immediately thought of MCK's blog and her Not me! posts. I realized at that moment that we all do things we can't believe we did, so why not share it with the world? What's a little humiliation if it makes someone else smile??? So here goes...

I did not say 'I'm sorry' out loud as I accidentally washed a moth down the sink one morning last week. Nope, not me.

I also did not eat half of a bag of Crazy Bread on my way home from Little Caesar's last week. I would never do that - especially after weigh in. Nope, not me.

As many of you know, I have a serious addiction love for lip gloss, chapstick, etc. So, when I say that I did not get out of bed last week at 3 in the morning to get my lip gloss, I'm sure you'll believe me. That would totally be out of character for me.

Because I know how irresponsible it would be to let Cooper, my friends two year old, play in the rain and mud puddles, I certainly did not allow him to do that until there was not a dry spot on his pants and I had to strip him down and throw his clothes in the dryer. Nope, not me!

And finally, yesterday, while working yet again on the hardwoods, Jack (one of my sweet labs) reverted back to his puppy years. He found a knee pad that Ryan left at our house on Saturday and comenced to running through the new house playing with it. JP & I were in hysterics because he never acts this way. I happened to think while he was doing this that maybe I should take the knee pad away from him so he didn't tear it up. Of course I never would have allowed him to continue playing with it and simply tell JP that we would just buy Ryan new knee pads. Nope, not me!

And, you happen to be an awesome writer!

Amanda - don't you just love the Not me Monday entries....I love reading what other people do that ordinarily that might not would admit. I love the pic of Jack and the knee pad...I could almost visualize that! Hope the house is coming along good.
