Not Me Monday 6-29-09



Saturday I was not outdoors pulling weeds, watering and pruning my garden when I heard a flash go off and realized I was still in my nightgown.

And then Saturday night, when all the children were finished their showers and there was a car accident at our intersection, I did not tell six of the them they could go out to watch the mulitple ambulances, fire trucks and police vehicles in THEIR pajamas.

Nor did I pretend our kids weren't in their bathrobes when our neighbors walked up to visit with us.

I may or may not have suggested the kids could take the vacation jar car to car and charge a nickle to tell the long line of stopped vehicles the alternate route out.

And I Definitely did not watch the first episode of the original Star Trek series with my dear husband and then have nightmares all night about alien creatures sucking the salt out of my loved ones.

Nor did I wish an alien creature would come along and suck the fat out of my thighs.

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.

  3. HEHE!!! I used to refuse to be caught out of the house in my PJ's... then life got crazy.. and well, PJ's are now often worn well into the day until I get that 30 minutes to concentrate on me! (though I would never admit that to my mom! haha!) This was very funny, and I too, love the nickel jar! ((How much did they collect?))

  7. For privacy reasons, I cannot participate in not me mondays... too many people know where I live, and social services would be there within hours to take my children away. ;)

  9. Hilarious!! You are a hoot! I go out in my jammies or sweats to the garbage can out front quite often. I hope I never get approached for a conversation or directions.

    Too bad about the accident by your house. Jammies at night at such an event seems appropriate.

    A nickle for directions? Is that true? LOL!

    I'll be back. Thanks for all of your comments on my blog.

  10. Ahhhh, that might be nice! Aliens that suck fat out of places - but only if WE get to choose where, right? And maybe they can inject it back into other places? Yea!
    Nice!

    Have a great week.
