Not Me! Monday

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

During a weak moment, I did not agree to give up my homeschool room to Jaiden in an attempt to:

a) discontinue the constant state of clutter that is the girls room

b) discontinue the somewhat tense relationships of 3 little girls sharing one room and

c) discontinue their attempts at moving into college residing, much missed, big sis' Jordan's room.

I did not spend hours cleaning and organizing not only Jaiden's new room, but also the rest of the 3,000 square feet that received random regurgitated remnants of the schoolroom.

It does not look like an educational store vomited in my kitchen.

I definitely do not think we have a lot more work to do before it's finished, and I am not embarassed at all to show you what the rest of it looks like.

I did not celebrate our son's 11 birthday this week. I did not ask him to watch a movie with me in my bed and then savor every single moment when he fell asleep next to me. Nope. Not me!

I did not work a 40 hour work week in 3 nights in a busy ICU during a full moon. And for those doubters, it's a proven fact around here that things get CRAZY during the full moon...

It was not absolutely insane.

I did not pull into the patient parking lot at work at 6:29 pm and make the decision to park illegally because I hate being late to work.

I know, shame on me. Like you've never done it. Really.

I was not running late for work because I was moving furniture around in my basement and just couldn't stop. I am not OCD like that at all!

In the morning, after a very long 13 hour shift, amidst a sleep-deprived paranoia, I did not think that the security officer from work had left the parking lot at the same time as me and was following me down the freeway all the way to my house. I did not slow way down, trying to catch a glimpse of what I was sure were lights on the top of the silver SUV.

It was definitely not my neighbor in the silver SUV.

And he did not stare at me with the most incredulous look on his face as he passed me in a no-passing zone because... well ... because I was going 20 mph.

I definitely am not celebrating my birthday today.

I will not going to tell you how old I am today... nope. No way. Absolutely not.

Have a great week and don't do anything I wouldn't do!
