Not Me Monday...Oh boy, what did I (not) do now?

1. It was NOT me who decided that a day old cup of coffee out of the pot would be just fine and there was no need to brew a whole new fresh pot...I mean, really when you think about it I like espresso anyway. I would NEVER be that lazy.

2. It was NOT me (and my hubby) who stood in line for an hour and a half to take pictures with Santa to have the computer crash literally as we got up to Santa...then who decided he might need a smoke break...(seriously Santa...FYI, you may not want to let the little kids in on your really lovely habit). (Not to mention, my oldest did NOT ask me if Santa made Cigarettes at his workshop)LOL....

3. It was definitely NOT me who decided to get a really nice, expensive car wash this week and while waiting for my buzzer to go off for my car I did NOT overhear a man screaming the F word to someone on the phone...Again, it was NOT me who politely (and by politely, I mean really snotty and belligerent) told him that was highly inappropriate and should not be allowed in public. There were several OLD men who applauded which made me NOT feel hot and sassy ;)

4. It was NOT me who spent the better part of a 40hr work week fighting with the computer and photo shop for the above header/Christmas card. I am more intelligent than that and should know better than to try and accomplish something like this without and intervention. I needed an army of hands to click in this program...Sheesh and I sell these things for a living, how does an average person deal with this?????? I was NOT frustrated!

5. Yeah, so my family decided it would be fun to go to this outdoor Christmas parade on Sunday evening (did I mention that we live in Minnesota?). Any who, the temps had NOT been plummeting and it was NOT blizzard us here at all...so we get downtown and I was NOT grumpy...looking at my watch and basically wondering if I was ever going to eat again when my oldest son did NOT say to me.."Man mom, you need a Starbucks".....Um, this did NOT send a hungry, cold, almost tongue stuck to pole agitated mom into a NON fit of Rage....wow...thanks for letting me vent on that one...(PS, thanks to the Starbucks on Nicollet Mall for making my hormone levels normal again). It was not me anyways...That would just be pure evil.

6. Lets just say that it was "NOT" me who called a snow day for (today) Monday for our whole school district, I mean at least for my children, I am not getting them up out of bed to sludge through 40 minutes of traffic to go 6 miles to school...Let's just say that since I am posting at 1:30 in the morning, I should NOT have a problem sleeping in...

So, Please tell me....what did you "NOT" do this week? Please visit MckMama for more!

Too funny about the Santa...OMGosh, our santa has a real beard and it is no longer white, but...yellow. Think he is a smoker too? Jaxon is cracking me up. Gotta love those honest engines we created.

Loving the parade story! Burr! And the whole Santa fiasco...LOL! His breath must have been minty fresh! Did the camera ever work again or was the entire time a wash? Oh and BYW, love the new header!

Stephanie said...

Since I haven't trekked to the insane long line of waiting Santa babies at our mall I can't talk! Oh my though I about laughed out loud about Santa making cigs :)

Good for you for saying something to that guy on the phone!!

You have me curious, what do you do for a living? Do you sell the software or your creations? Either way, sounds like a pretty cool job.

I hate cold weather!! It only snows here once every couple of years (besides snow flurries) But when we get a 1/2 inch, everything closes down!
3 cheers for snow days!
