not me! monday

monday, monday.... time for not me! 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.



i do NOT abhor swimsuit shopping. so of course i was NOT dreading shopping for one this year. so as i ventured through the swimsuit section, i actually found a two piece halter & skirt suit that i liked so i decided to try it. the top fit great but the bottom didn't. so i tried the next size up. the skirt shorts fit better, but the top was too big. so when i was putting the suits back on their hangers i did NOT accidentally mix up the bottoms. oops! (you couldn't buy them individually. they were a set.)

then when i went to check out the thought went through my head what if they check to make sure that they're the same size? i did NOT scope out the lanes and hop in the one that the cashier was a guy about my age. surely he won't look at the size on my swimsuit...! and guess what?! it did NOT work! :-)

********

i did not put off packing for our trip until the very last day. i did not have about 3 hours to pack and then waste 2 hours blogging, washing dishes, and cooking. one of the ingredients i needed was chopped onion. and every time i cut into an onion i cry. last time i tried wearing sunglasses to see if that would help, but it didn't. so this time i figured i would just have to cry through the cutting, slicing, and chopping. oh how i wished i had a pair of these. and then i got a brilliant idea: i did NOT go outside and dig through samantha's toybox and pull out her pair of swimming goggles. i did NOT bring them inside and clean them off. and then i did NOT wear them the entire time i cut the onion. even despite them being way too small. i was NOT so thankful that they worked and i didn't shed a single tear!

and because i know some of you readers would beg for a picture, when i was all done i did NOT go over to the computer and snap a picture with the webcam for y'all to see. because i am NOT nice like that! and i am NOT a little bit scared of what my sister will do with the picture after she did made me these... (yeah, and i was definitely NOT covering up a couple pimples with my hand.)

********

speaking of our vacation, by the time this posts, we will NOT be on our way to camping for 6 days. pure fun if you ask me! and i am NOT so thankful to my bloggy friends that have agreed to guest post for me! after looking at the posts i have scheduled, i will NOT have posted more while i'm away than when i'm home...

********

tomorrow is NOT my 200th post. i am NOT going to have a giveaway, so make sure you do NOT come back!

happy monday!

Sonya said...

that is too funny!! Thanks for the laughs and for the great pic. :) At least it worked though. I might have to steal this idea myself. I hate cutting onions.

Hopping over from MckMama's NMM post. This is my first visit and I'm glad I stopped by! I had to giggle at the goggles and the swimsuit! I've done the swimsuit thing, but not the goggles! Thanks for the tip! Enjoy your vacation!

Love the picture! Very smart thinking lol!

And nice job on the swim suit! I am surprised they even sell swimsuits as a set still?! I would have done the same thing! =)
