Not Me! Monday

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

Wow! What a week it's been here at Ellerbeeville. We definitely did not come to some mind blowing decisions around here this week... and no I'm not going to share.

I did not find our new kitten in here...

And I didn't wonder for one moment why our pets always go crazy. I didn't thank the child who did this for not putting "Ninja" in the real microwave. And then I didn't kick myself for even throwing that idea out there.

I did not get to work in the yard in 70+ degree weather this week. I was not completely overwhelmed by the immenseness of what all I need to do this spring to make my backyard liveable again.

I did not look up the work immenseness in my thesaurus to try to find another word that describes the situation better. Hugeness, immensity, prodigiousness, stupendousness, tremendousness, and vastness do not even do it justice.

I did not give in and let the pyros build a fire in the fire pit to burn some old leaves and sticks. The look on his face does not scare me one bit...

I also did not give in and let them make s'mores instead of doing yard work.

We definitely did not go to six (6... count them 6) soccer games in a span of 4 days. We did not celebrate with our son as the SSC 96/97 Reds won the Championship on Sunday. This is not a picture of him kicking it and taking names on Sunday.

Congratulations Josh! and the SSC 96/97 Reds.

We also did not celebrate as 5 of the 6 children signed up for Spring Outdoor Soccer. I did not wonder for even one moment what happens when 3, 4 or 5 kids end up playing at the same time.

I already told you what I did not do to the rabbit eating people in our neighborhood. I won't go into any more detail of our homeowner's association saga as it's not worth the time, but I will say that I did not call them again several times over the last week.

I did not squeal with delight for my daughter who has an opportunity to *maybe* go here for a month this summer to work .

I did not have to look on a map to find out for sure where Santorini Greece is... (OK, I know where Greece is... just not real sure where Santorini is)

I wasn't the least bit jealous of her.
I did not spend way too much time reading this book.

I did not end up in the morgue three times over the weekend. (Yes, that's three times in three days... would you be scared to let me take care of you?) I did not freak out as I typically do in this dark corner of the basement of the hospital when someone started knocking on the door. I wrote a little about my irrational fear here.

I'm sure there's a lot of other stuff that I didn't do this week, but for some reason, I can't stop thinking about the knocking in the morgue, and now I've lost my concentration.
