Not Me Monday

Mckmama- Not Me Monday

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

Well, I had such a ridiculously stupid "Not Me" kinda week, that I decided it should be documented! Here goes:
  • I did not open the front door to go outside and check the mail, and then knock on the screen door before walking out of my own house! I did not step back, look at Avery as if to say "Why did I just do that?" and then proceed to open the door (this time without knocking!) and get the mail!
  • I did not place a piece of aluminum in the microwave, set it for a minute and then see & hear sparks. I did not pop the door open and realize there was an actual fire in the microwave. I certainly did not look at Avery screaming "Oh my gosh! What are we supposed to do when there's a fire in the microwave?!?" It's okay, we all lived, microwave included. Lesson learned: It is well worth saving Papa Johns garlic butter for the next day. Just make sure you take off the aluminum lid before reheating.
  • I did not get so interested in a certain conservative talk show radio host, that I just had to hear his final point. Not wanting to sit at the gas tank while listening, I tried to figure out how to keep the radio on, so I could listen while pumping gas. I was not very pleased to be listening to Rush while pumping my gas. I certainly did not get back into the car, attempt to crank it and realize exactly why I figured out how to keep the radio on; I never turned the car off!
  • I have not referred to a diaper change as a 'butt' change for the last two years. I would never do something so crude. I'm not blaming it on Charlie, because surely he thought this up and NOT me. It never occurred to me not to say the word "butt" 5 times a day until Avery started to point out everyone's butt. She is not obsessed with pointing to, and talking about, all things butt-related. And who's to blame? Certainly not this mom!
  • And last but not least, I am not planning on harassing all of you to enter my giveaway for a $50 gift card to your favorite store.

I didnt do a Not Me this week since I just posted about your giveaway last night. Anyway I definitely DID NOT almost very nearly throw away my Swiffer Mop because it "no longer sprayed the cleanser", only to -just before trashing it- discover that it, OF COURSE, used batteries which I have NEVER changed. hehehe Now it works again! :)

So the knocking on your own door, classic! I've done the aluminum foil bit too, not my brightest moment! Have a good week!

Hey girl...pop back by and copy and paste that comment six times for the giveaway. that way you'll have one entry for each of the six things you've done increasing your chances of winning! I know crazy right, but it's the easiest way for me to track entries since I have a comment numbering feature that I use for giveaways! Thanks!

I would've done the same thing with the Papa John's garlic butter...just ate it on my pizza crust a few minutes ago and was wondering if I could reheat the whole thing tomorrow, lol.

And the butt thing is hilarious! The other day Sarah was on the phone with me and she said Leon kept lifting up her skirt and saying "pervert...pervert...pervert" lol. I could hear him in the background. Out of the mouths of babes :)
