Not Me Monday

Well, it certainly CAN'T be Monday again already! Here are some of the things I did NOT say or do this past week.

I certainly was NOT stressed in the slightest. I mean, seriously... what on earth could I possibly have to be stressed over?

It's NOT like the parent company of my office came in and closed our doors and offered me a position with them, in one of their offices that just happens to be in the same town, and in fact much closer to my house. (Instead of 1.91 miles away, the new office is NOT 1.1 miles away!) So, I have certainly NOT been busy moving offices, transferring files, redecorating, calling clients, settling in, etc. Nope. 'Cuz that would be C-C-Crazy!

Also -- I have NOT been stressed because I have NOT had finals the past 10 or so days to deal with. And I did NOT make a HUGE error by mentally swapping some deadlines and I did NOT miss a very important deadline for one of my online classes and this did NOT mean that I might not pass the class, which would also NOT mean I'd have to repay back one of my grants. So, yeah... NO pressure. I did NOT send an email to the prof and did NOT own up to my oversight and did NOT ask for mercy and did NOT submit the work anyway just on the off-chance she would accept it. Again, I was NOT stressed as her decision would make or break my passing the class. Prior to this oversight I did NOT have a 96% in the class. However, this submission did NOT account for HALF of my grade. I was NOT relieved to find that she DID accept my submissions, albeit past the deadline. While she wasn't as generous as she could have been, she did NOT give me just enough points to pass with a freakin' C. I am NOT slightly disappointed in myself because my Straight-A streak is now screwed up by none other than yours truly. On the other hand, I am NOT thrilled that at least she passed me and I won't be digging up the funds to repay the grant. **sigh**

In other news... I was NOT in charge of putting together a Christmas music program for Church this past weekend and I did NOT have a few issues with one of the other "in charge" people as he kept telling me to come up with something -- anything I felt -- and every time I did he did NOT say, "Let me think about this" and come back with changes. I did NOT finally say, in a kind manner mind you, "These are what the choirs will be singing. Do what you will with the rest of the program as far as speakers. Unfortunately, I cannot devote any more time or energy to this as I have finals to worry about." I do NOT think that some people have a hard time letting go of responsibility or delegating. It's NOT like your date saying, "You pick the restaurant this time. It's totally up to you." And then when you do they say, "Oh... I'm not really in the mood for THAT place."

I did NOT attend 3 Christmas parties and 2 of which were NOT on the same night, which means I did NOT have 2 dinners that night! I did NOT wear my stretchy pants. HaHa!

I also was NOT busy cleaning my house a bit for our family's Ugly Sweater Christmas Party as my parents were NOT going to be in town this past weekend. While the house got cleaned, I will NOT tell you that there is a mountain of laundry in the laundry room that I haven't even touched yet. :)

I did NOT finally get my family photos done for our Christmas cards, which I still have NOT been procrastinating. I do NOT try to do an annual letter wherein I keep the relatives back home informed of our recent goings on. I do NOT think that this year it will be a post-Christmas letter, because quite frankly, Dear Scarlet...

Pictures of the aforementioned activities will NOT be posted later this week. :)

Soooo.... what did you NOT do?

I did NOT eat lots of yummy food this past weekend because of birthday and Christmas parties. Of course, I did NOT gain any weight due to the parties.
