Not Me! Monday

Join me at MckMama's website see what others are NOT up to this week.
  • I was not slightly panicked that we had to call in a repair man for the furnace because it wouldn’t stay lit and we heard from many people that it looked like we were going to have to buy a new furnace. We JUST bought a truck, we can’t afford a new furnace! The truck does have heated seats, a very good heater, and a DVD player. Maybe we could just live in it until Spring…..
  • I was not HUGELY relieved when the furnace repair man said he thought it was just a dirty burner that was kicking off the furnace. He cleaned it off with his “hi-tech” tool (a pocket knife) and it has worked since Thursday night!
  • I did not hear W calling my name with some urgency when he saw the washing machine water creep out from under the laundry room door and halfway into my kitchen.
  • I most certainly did not spend the next 10 minutes mopping up soapy laundry water off the kitchen floor and think – this counts as mopping the kitchen floor.
  • I did not search quickly for the warranty information for the 5 month old washing machine, race to the computer to register the product online so that I could call for service.
  • I was not more than slightly miffed when I “talked” to a computer on the telephone for 5 minutes, giving up all of my pertinent information, only to be asked by the service rep, as soon as he picked up the phone, for my name, phone, address, model #, etc.. UUUUUGGGGHHH! Why do you ask me to divulge all this information to the computer if you are only going to ask me for it again!!!!!
  • I did not call Zman (who was in the house) from the backyard, while in the hot tub, to come outside and turn up the patio lights (that are located on the patio, 10 feet away from the hot tub) so that we could play Uno H2O in the hot tub and actually see the cards. Nope, not me! I am a much more considerate person and would not stoop down to using child labor because it was BBRRRRR! cold outside and I did not want to get out of the hot water.
  • If I had asked Zman to come outside and turn up the lights for me, I most certainly would not barter with him for such deed and agree to drive him and his friends to the movie the next night. I am a much better mother than that and do not barter with my child.
  • I did not wait until Zman signed onto Facebook with his buddy C standing right beside him, then grab my phone and start a chat on Facebook with him. I would never embarrass my child in front of his friends.
  • I did not ask Zman’s friend C to be my friend on Facebook and he did not accept me as a friend. If he did, I would not consider myself a very “cool” mom. (Yes, I am a legend in my own mind)
  • I did not take my camera to church to take pictures of Bean, Bug, and Almost Mine receiving their certificates of appreciation for serving as acolytes. I did not then proceed to take pictures of the entire service. If I did, I most certainly did not look at said 150+ pictures last night and think I am very lucky to have this church family.


  1. I love that you started a facebook chat! So funny!

  2. I love the facebook confession. Have done both to my teenage daughter...

    Way to be involved in the lives of your kids and their friends!!! ;-)

  4. I love this part: this counts as mopping the kitchen floor. :) Good one!
