Not Me! Monday


Well, it's Not Me! Monday again! MckMama's son, Stellan, is still in the hospital. His health has certainly been a roller coaster ride for this family, but they seem to be making some steps in the right direction by getting a 2nd opinion. I don't know if she'll post a Not Me! Monday this week or not, but you can head over to her blog to read about how little Stellan is doing.

As for me, I did not decide that we are going to move again. Nope, not me! Not after moving in August 2005, December 2006, March 2007, and March 2008! I would have to be crazy to do that, especially if it was only half a mile down the road.

And, hypothetically, if I had decided to move again, when my current landlord showed up with no notice, knocked on our door, and asked to show the place to someone (who was standing right there with him) I wouldn't actually let him in. I would not let him make me feel guilty and like I couldn't ask him to come back later, seeing as our bed was not unmade, there was not a pile of dishes in the sink, and my dirty, sweaty gym clothes were not hanging off my dresser drying. That would just be embarrassing!

And last night, I did not sit on the couch salivating while watching Iron Chef America, secret ingredient: chocolate! I definitely didn't dream about chocolate Saturday night either. Giving up chocolate for lent has been a piece of cake for me!! mmmmm...chocolate cake....

Seems that I have actually been semi-normal this past week, and don't have much to confess to not doing! :) What did you not do this week?

Moving again? I'm glad that you are not going to do that!

Happy "Not Me!"

I did "not" use your pesto recipe that you posted on your blog about a week or two ago and make Grilled chicken pesto for the first time in my life. It was "not" awesome! And my kids did "not" love it and ask for more. :D

It looks like several others are Not Me-ing today. I kinda wish I had went ahead with it now. :/ Well, there is always next Monday! :)

Thanks for stopping by with comment love. :)

It's amazing what landlords try to get away with. Good for you for saying no. I can be such a push over sometimes, and when I say no to something like that, I feel bad after.

Yes! Mmmm chocolate!

No, I'm a push over too, unfortunately. I actually did let him in even though I didn't want to. I felt like I couldn't say no with the guy standing right there with him. I was so embarrassed!

I hate showing apartments, don't you? It is stressful. I only once told a landlord no, but she had been "dropping in" several times a week, and it was getting old. She showed our apartment to EVERYONE because it was in the same building as the office, so she didn't have to walk very far.
