Not Me Monday!

I did not turn on the wrong burner on my stove thereby melting a plastic Cracker Barrel take out container and filling my house with a rather toxic smell. No way would I ever do such a thing, I always pay close attention to what I am doing. And I most certainly did not turn on the same wrong burner the very next night and almost re-boil already steeped and ready to mix tea. What sort of inattentive, distracted mom would do that?

I did not find eight new Facebook friends I haven't seen or heard from in ages. They are not all my husband's fraternity brothers, nor are they mostly from the pledge class for which I was sweetheart. I did not spend hours I do not have sitting at my computer looking at pictures of their families and catching up with their lives. I did not call my husband in from the other room on several occasions saying, "Guess who that is!" A grown woman with a pile of laundry and a floor that needs mopping would never waste precious time on something like Facebook for crying out loud.

I did not try to open my Kodak Easyshare software only to find that it would not open. I did not immediately feel nauseated nor did I panic because many, many of my photos had not been saved anywhere else. I did not spend the next half hour chatting with Peter, the tech support dude at Kodak. I did not panic once again when Peter told to remove the software from my computer and then reinstall it from the Kodak site. Never once did I doubt Peter when he said I would not lose any of my pictures by following his advice. I did not sigh a huge sigh of relief when I realized he was in fact correct, and I did not spend the rest of the weekend making sure ALL of my pictures were saved on Kodak Gallery so that I would never face that nauseating panic again!

I did not wake up this morning and immediately wish that the kids did not have school so that I could spend the entire day in my house in my fuzzy robe and slippers, and I am not in any way looking forward to Thanksgiving break so that I will have at least a day or two to do just that!
And now, please go over and read what MckMama did not do this week. I did not laugh out loud as I was reading her post.
