"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.

Well, it's Sunday and Mck Mama is sure to host the funnest blog carnival of bloggy world tomorrow. I however, will be attending baby Mason's Life Celebration (aka: funeral), but I had some really good "Not Me!"s to share, so I'm pre-posting my Monday. If you want to join in, click the button above.

This week, I did not put off going to the grocery store and have to send my dear husband out early one morning for milk in order to feed the family breakfast. When I did go to the grocery store a few days later, I did totally not skip the milk aisle, thinking erroniously that he had gotten enough milk for the week (7 gallons), even though I knew he only got 3 gallons. Nope, not me!

I do not know the employees in our Sam's Club by name, definitely not George, who started out many years ago in the cafe, then moved to demos, then to the bakery and is now back out on the floor doing demos. I do not know George's medical history. My children do not think of George as an extra grandpa. George did not ask me that day if I had enough milk, and I certainly did not reply that I did. Uh-uh, not me!

The next day I did not use the last of the milk and have to make a second trip to Sam's specifically for more milk. After buying the usual 7 gallons of milk, I did not proceed to the van, take the little boys out of the cart, buckle them into their car seats, get in and buckle myself. When I put the van in reverse I did NOT assume that the rear sensing alert was beeping at me because I parked too close the cart corral. I was not confused that the beeps got faster as I slowly continued to back out. It did not finally dawn on me the moment I hit the cart that it was the cart with the milk still in it behind my van! Wouldn't that be totally pathetic? I am SO glad that was NOT ME!!!

Feel free to leave a comment and jump on over to Mck Mama's blog to be brutally honest about what you have not done.


  1. Hey girlfriend.... I know today was an emotion packed Celebration and sorrow-filled day. You have been heavy in my thoughts and prayers.

    May God's sweet peace cover you all today and may you see glimpses of that purpose that Mason filled.
