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.

This week I did not tell the washer repairman that I do a load of laundry every single day and that I am now 6 days/loads behind. After all, I would admit that I NEED to do one load of laundry per day but that I usually don’t and end up putting it off until the weekend and spend all weekend long doing laundry.

This week I did not resort to promising Bug to take pictures of her while she was at gymnastics so she would be happier about going. Not me – I would never stoop to appealing to my young child’s ego to get her to do what I want.

When my mother called me this week to offer the use of her washer AND dinner on Friday night, I was not more excited about someone else cooking dinner for me than being able to have clean clothes. After all, I am very concerned about personal hygiene.

After finding out that my mom folded the last two loads of laundry I left at her house, I did not wish I had left the other two loads there for her to fold also.

I did not sit in church on Sunday and wonder if anyone makes heated pew seats for days below 40 degrees.

I did NOT hear Bean say this when she was asked how her day at school was:

“Well, I kinda had a nervous breakdown”.

Get in line Sister! If anyone gets to have a nervous breakdown in this house, I call dibbs!!!!!


  1. Totally feeling ya on the whole laundry ordeal. Guess what I spent my Saturday AND Sunday doing? LAUNDRY!

    The best, however, was the nervous breakdown. There is absolutely no way a child is allowed to go cuckoo before the Momma!

    How the weather up that way today? My mother-in-law and brother-in-law both live in Cordova and the beginning of the week(I think) she was telling me it was stuck in the 30s, I think.

    Have a great one,

  2. Almost forgot~
    The picture of Bean in your header is just beautiful. And I just have to laugh everytime I see your blog name somewhere. My limit is 2, I just happen to have 3--sooo funny! Wish I was so witty.

  3. Amazing how you can "treat" bug to pictures of her doing gymnastics, while I got barred from my son's wrestling tournament for fear I would do the same. Where's the justice??? Ah, to be 13!

  4. I'm with ya on the laundry! UGH! Great Not Me's :)

  5. Love your Not Me's! Especially the one about the nervous breakdown! lol!!

  6. Hi Missi,
    Just wanted to stop by and thank you for joining in the friends at A Place Called Simplicity. What a blessing all of you are to us..

    Sweet family you have and I love the names "bean" and "bug" for your girls....super cute.

    I pray that your day is blessed...

    LOve, Linn
