Not Me Monday

This past week I did NOT stay up way too late again almost every night which did NOT cause me to be overly emotional at work. I did NOT have an extremely crappy Cinco de Mayo and my boss did NOT snap at me, causing me to leave work for an unexpected lunch hour and I certainly did NOT cry. He did NOT apologize to me later in a closed-door meeting and he did NOT ask me what was wrong with me lately. I did NOT confide that this job has me stressed ever since the "hostile take-over" of the new parent company and I certainly did NOT tell him that it was just another piece of the stress puzzle compounding my already stress-filled life. He did NOT tell me to hang in there and suggest that some of my work load be assigned to others. He also did NOT tell me that he thought I was a great employee and an even better mom and that he did NOT understand because his own mom and dad did NOT get divorced when he was only seven. His words did NOT make me cry more. I did NOT go over to Big-D's later and I certainly did NOT cry on his shoulder, and he certainly did NOT comfort me. And we did NOT just simply hug, which was NOT perfectly okay with me.

I did NOT apply to other jobs online, just to see if something else might come along as I do NOT believe that God will make a way where there is no way, and I do NOT have faith that everything will be all right.

Also, this week, I did NOT get to start reading a screen play about a friend of mine, which I totally do NOT think is well-written and funny. I, in turn certainly did NOT share a piece of writing of my own.

I did NOT have a hard time finishing the blog post on the Love Letters which is also NOT way past due. As I thought about it, I did NOT come to the conclusion that perhaps one of the reasons I was having a hard time writing about it is NOT because once I blog about it, the adventure is over and that does NOT make me sad. It is NOT scheduled to be tomorrow's post.

I did NOT organize and oversee the adult dinner at church Saturday night which was NOT advertised as a "Hawaiian Dinner Cruise" Theme. Guests were NOT told to come dressed in their Hawaiian clothes. I did NOT have them "board" a pretend ship and I certainly did NOT have ship-attendants serve tropical beverages "on board". Once everyone got settled, the captain did NOT announce that due to a hurricane, the "ship" would have to change course and instead dock on the coast of Mexico. We did NOT then serve a Taco Bar for dinner and have Cinco de Mayo decorations set up. I did NOT think I was clever with my little twist and pleased that a Taco Bar did NOT fit the budget better than a Hawaiian Luau would have. It seemed that everyone did NOT get plenty to eat and they certainly did NOT have a good time.

Oh - and I did NOT whine and moan on my Blog about all of my stress and did NOT receive many good tips and words of encouragement. Also, I do NOT feel bad that I haven't gotten to read nearly as many blogs this week as I normally do, and I do NOT plan to try to catch up, if it is at all possible.

So...what did you NOT do this past week?

Did not take car for an oil change, and did not leave owing $1500 in repairs. Did not feel like I was robbed. :)

I do NOT have a 7th grade love affair going on in my house. The 7th grade boy did NOT text my 7th grade girl and he did NOT ask her if he should work on his muscles. She did NOT as me how to respond to which I did NOT say...What muscles? He's in the 7th grade for the love of ALLTHEFOODICAN'THAVEANYMORE, he doesn't have muscles.

I did NOT push mow 3 acres of our 5 acre yard. My riding mower is NOT sitting in my yard and it does NOT have a flat tire and it does NOT need a new battery.

My bloodpressure was NOT 168/100 this morning.

I love that you through in a taco bar like that...economical and certainly unexpected!

hahah, "we did NOT just cuddle".. I'm thinking between the lines there, and I'm happy you got some comfort from BigD.

I did NOT totally cry over the Mother's Day talks at church. My husband did NOT buy me some new shoes which were much needed. And Saturday night I did NOT watch the Uninvited which totally did NOT have an awesome plot twist in the end.

I did NOT stay home from Mothers day church to stay at home with a kid that was NOT having a severe asthma attack.

I did NOT pout a little because I did NOT remember that last mothers day I went to my moms and got to hang with her and dad.

I did NOT work myself crazy and I'm certainly NOT paying for it now. I do NOT have a bad attitude this week. I certainly am NOT praying to feel less overwhelmed.

I did NOT have fun at the ward party!

I did NOT have a melt down on friday and did NOT have a sit down with my son to talk about his sister's depression. I did NOT have a wonderful mothers day with all my kids. I did NOT get great gifts and did NOT get to go to a movie and dinner!

I'm so glad you do NOT have such a wonderful boss. It's so nice that he did NOT comfort you and say such nice things. You do NOT always have the most interesting Not Me Monday posts I've ever read. :)

i did NOT have a little boy who was too shy to sing in the front of the church on sunday and i definately did NOT have to buy my own mother's day present, because my husband did NOT miss all of my hints. by the way, my gift was NOT a darling new wallet.
