Just another Manic Monday, whoa..... Remember that song? I digress. Well, it's Monday, so time to tell you all of the things I did NOT say or do this past week.
I did NOT send one son off to scout camp 4+ hours away to ride mountain bikes on the Slick Rock Trail in National-Park-territory in 100 degree weather. I did NOT worry as he is one of the smallest kids, and I did NOT have to remind myself that last year for his scout camp they did a 325 mile trip from Northern Utah to Southern Utah. As it turns out, he did NOT end up being one of the best as I did NOT expect.
I did NOT run/walk the trail on both Tuesday AND Wednesday. On Tuesday I was NOT totally having back pain and I mostly did NOT walk as everytime I ran, I felt like "the girls" were tugging on the knot in the middle of my back. I did NOT complain when Big-D met up with me at the end and asked why I was not running. In response, he did NOT suggest a reduction surgery. No he certainly did NOT, cuz he's a guy and most guys would NOT recommend that... (seriously, though... they would not.)
I did NOT go back on Wednesday feeling much better. I did NOT meet AND exceed my distance from the previous week, doing a total of 5 miles and I did NOT make it ALL.THE.WAY. down to the other side this time. Once I got there, I did NOT write Big-D's name in the sand with a big rock, so that he would NOT see how far I had come on his way back. During the last quarter mile, He did NOT catch up with me and pass me and once he got ahead I did NOT see him pause a little and turn around and look at me. I did NOT wonder what he was doing. After the run, he did NOT tell me that he was kicking a snake out of the way for me cuz he did NOT know that if I saw it I might become paralyzed and not wanna finish the trail. He does NOT know how much I abhor snakes! I did NOT think that his actions were thoughtful, sweet, and somewhat heroic. No, I certainly did NOT.
I did NOT meet with my Academic Advisor on Thursday and she did NOT tell me what the requirements were for me to graduate. I did NOT feel excited and I did NOT go home and register for classes that night. No I did NOT. I will NOT be posting more about school and my upcoming classes in a future blog post. No, I certainly will NOT.
I did NOT have a dream later Thursday night that I was running the trail and did NOT get bit by a snake and Big-D did NOT have to take me to the hospital. While there, I was NOT aware that I was dying, and before I died I was NOT trying to tell him something, but my tongue was NOT totally too thick and heavy to get any words out. I did NOT share this dream with him.
I did NOT spend the weekend chatting with friends online, blogging for the next three weeks, and making marshmallowy concoctions at 1 in the morning, of which I will also NOT share in a future post. Nope, NOT me!
I did NOT spend all stinkin day Saturday tackling the laundry and did NOT sweat like a pig, and did NOT reward myself afterwards with a cold shower. I then did NOT go over to hang out with that one person whom I am NOT blogging about (even tho I have NOT already mentioned him in this post, hehe) and he did NOT greet me with a Peach Rainbow from Pace's Dairy Ann. It was NOT so totally good and I did NOT get brain freeze as we ate our Rainbows and watched a lame-but-funny movie thanks to On Demand.
So, what did you NOT do this week?
