It's Not ME! Monday again!!

That's right, it's NOT ME!! Monday again!! I'm starting to get the hang of this :) If you want to read past entries of NOT ME!! Monday, just click the tag at the bottom of this post.

I did not spend last week at work totally distracted and missing my sweet Joshua and his wonderful mommy Molly. And I certainly wouldn't miss them terribly and be totally bummed that Molly didn't get that job she applied for in Chattanooga a year and a half ago, all the while dreaming what it would be like to have them here. Nope, not me!!!

I also would NEVER spend the entire week planning to take off half a day Friday to go and see my mother, but wait until Thursday to turn in a leave slip. Not me, that's inconsiderate ;)

I CERTAINLY DID NOT make the biggest scene and squeal like a FREAKIN' SCHOOL GIRL in the middle of the Cincinnati Airport when my friend Hilary told me that she had decided to apply for grad school at UTC and move to Chattanooga from Indianapolis!! You know, because it has NOT been nearly 15 FREAKIN' YEARS since we've lived in the same town!!!! That's right, Hilary and I have NOT been long distance friends for half my life, when we only lived in the same town 5 years. Nope, I would never act so childish at my mother's workplace around her co-workers/ friends.

Even though I was visiting my mom for a late Mother's Day celebration, I DID NOT let HER buy ME a pedicure, because I totally did not need one. I mean, my toenails have certainly been re-painted several times since EASTER!

I did NOT have a wonderful time visiting Mom, seeing Matt's family at the CF Walk and hiding the Tobette statue this weekend! I don't love the tradition that Mom has of everyone who comes to visit her hiding Tobette.

I did not wonder while I was visiting my mom if it would be the last time I would see my little brother Toby, the yorkie. It wasn't bitter sweet for me to love on him and cuddle him Saturday before I left. I did not feel blessed to be able to see him once more, but also know that I may not see him again. Toby is not just the sweetest yorkie on the planet, and I certainly DON'T refer to a dog as my "little brother", I mean that's ridiculous.

I did not feel the least bit guilty about being away from home while my husband was really sick for the first time in over a year. Nope, not me!

I certainly did not wait until 1 week before Caleb's Christening date to MEASURE him for his outfit, you know, because I NEVER procrastinate!!

Caleb did not spend much of after church and lunch flirting with me. And it DIDN'T KILL ME to not hold him, just in case I was carrying whatever virus Matt has. Nope, never. I mean, why would I want to hold a baby anyway? Especially a cute one like Caleb.

I did not shamelessly photograph our two dogs FINALLY laying down on the same bed because I didn't think it was so sweet. And taking time for this picture certainly didn't contribute to my tardiness for Sunday School!

And this morning, I DID NOT stay in bed a little too long snuggling with my husband because he was finally feeling better. I have not been avoiding touching or snuggling him in fear of catching whatever brought down his immune system of steel. That extra snuggle time didn't make me 1/2 hour late to work today. NOPE NOT ME!!!!
