Not Me! Monday

Well blog readers...(drum roll please) is MONDAY!  You all know that means it is my favorite new day of the week as I get to begin the week with this wonderful denial of truth started by MckMama.  Head over to her website and check out many more people who are diving into this incredibly addicting blog carnival. 

  • I did NOT just have my computer freeze up and erase my entire Not Me post after I had linked it to MckMama's and have to retype the entire thing!
  • I did NOT finally join a gym in town after months of denying the need and I did NOT almost pass out multiple times as I went to aerobic classes with my new personal trainer (my sister Nikki)
  • I did NOT use my shirt to wipe my child's nose when we were at WalMart this week, only to be caught by an innocent bystander and get extremely embarrassed
  • I did NOT stalk MckMama's website while writing this post. Nope!
  • I did NOT work Friday night (7pm to 7am) at the hospital (I am a nurse in the NICU) and go home and sleep for 2 1/2 hours, drive an hour with my sisters and mother for my sister Nikki's final wedding dress fitting, and return back to town shortly before my shift started on Saturday night and go back to work again from 7pm to 7am. Nope! Because that would be silly and I might get sick. 
  • I was NOT my sister's wedding slave all week. (Enjoying every minute of course) Helping her make a slideshow for the wedding and do all the last minute super fun and NOt at all stressful stuff!
  • I did NOT wish and pray that my children could stay little forever at least a thousand times this week when they were fighting over who loved me more!
  • I did NOT spend 3 hours trying to figure out where to hang a couple of pictures in our living room with my husband and we took turns akwardly leaning over furniture and holding them up for each other only to hang them up in the very first spot we discussed!
  • I did NOT have 2 Frappacinnos on Saturday to help me survive my sleep deprived day after I told myself I was going to give them up because they are definitely NOT helping me become healthier!
  • I did NOT cry when my two year old threw up his breakfast all over himself because he had pooped and gagged himself from the smell.  This did NOT occur while we were trying to get going for the day and all over the bathroom rugs that had NOt just been washed and laid down only 15 minutes before.
  • I did NOT almost throw up myself when my two year old hugged me with puke all over and we both climbed into the tub to clean up
  • I did NOT become so excited that I could hardly sleep when my husband said we could go get a Christmas tree this past weekend
  • I did NOT become just a little disappointed when the tree farm to cut down your own was closed so we had to just buy one from the lot.
  • I did NOT just get the #1 spot for the week on MckMama's page!  I am NOT a dork for being excited about that either.
  • I did NOT wish I had written down all the other things I did NOT do this week. 
Hope you all have a spectacular week and have a good laugh on my behalf!

Takin' time to smell the flowers! said...

Number 1 on the list! Hey, you're good!! Love the post:)

Megan @ Hold it Up to the Light said...

Great NOT me moments! I had a similar gagging, vomiting situation with my 4 year old a few weeks ago when I asked her to help me clean up the baby after she vomited all over me. It was NOT a pretty site!!!

Julie said...

I did not stalk MckMama either. Don't you hate it when things get deleted?

Hailey said...

I hate throw up too! I threw up in my mouth a little just thinking about it.

Stacy C. said...

Congrats on being # 1 !!!

I hate it when my stuff gets deleted!

Great list!

Wow! You've had a busy week. I am insanely jealous that you made the #1 spot. I too, am a fellow MckMama stalker. Have a great week!

LucieP said...

Congrats on being #1!

I would have cried and puked if my son did the same
I puked when I was prego and had a stinky fart--I was using the bathroom and since I couldn't get up, I had to throw up on the flow between my legs---- I LOVE CHILDREN AND WHAT THEY DO TO US!

Prachar family said...

WOOHOO!! Your week is made! I want to hear how many I mean visitors you had to your blog. I had over 400 when I had the #2 spot a few weeks ago!! Funny how little it takes to make our days!!

I can't even imagine the mess over the stinky poop causing the puking you had on your hands...literally! You have my utmost sympathy...have been doing my share of cleaning up puke myself, but no poopy diapers to go with it! I can remember the sleep deprivation that comes with working nights and camming in all theh things we want to do that you can when you are not working during the day...and then also getting ill when not enough sleep was obtained!

Carm said...

Wow. That poop and puke stuff might be why I don't have kids yet! You are a trooper. I know they all say, it's different when you are the mama, but still... Wow!

I just joined a gym too... I'm at UND wellness --I qualified for their graduated grad price and so I went for it. Where are you working out?

Lindsley said...

Man, I must've missed it by just minutes! I was blog stalking as well this morning for the top spot, but left the house at 8:30 to go to the dang gym! Maybe next week! I sympathize with the gagging over the puke...I so do that!

Kimber said...

Teeheehee, love the gag/puke part. This is why we work in NICU huh? They never smell that bad. Great list. Happy Holidays!!

Amber said...

Wow, I didn't think it was possible for little ones to be disgusted by their own smell, at least mine don't...Those are two adorable little Mr.'s you have there, you are very lucky!

Mandy and Jack said...

You made me laugh so hard. And appreciate not having kids yet!! And I was proud of you for getting the number one mckmama spot too!! :)

Sugar Mommy said...

funny! and i've been there with the puke and the poop and basically the bottom falling out of your morning!

Amanda-The Family News! said...

These are cute...and you have a cute family!!!!

Liz said...

Oh what a rough morning - poor you and your little guy!!

Your family is adorable.

Mrs. Not-so-Domesticated said...

Love your "Not Me's"...I can completely relate to sleep deprivation, I'm a night NICU nurse too!

TuTu's Bliss said...

LOL!! I can NOT relate to wiping your child's nose with your own shirt. Congrats on snagging the number one spot, I am NOT jealous :)

Irene said...

Wow! What a busy week you did not have! I am not ever the slightest jealous that you are number one on MckMama's list because I am so not new to SITS and I am so not gonna try to be first next time.
