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.

i have NOT neglected my blog for a week. so in addition to catching up on reading blogs, i also have to catch up on posting.

remember how i do NOT need new clothes? well it was NOT me who went shopping at jcpenney outlet and got a few new articles of clothing, one item being a pair of khakis. i am NOT so cheap frugal that i was on the fence about spending $12.99 on a pair of pants. so when i finally gave in and decided to buy them, i was NOT super excited that they rang up for $2.69!!! (and i was NOT ecstatic that i was able to fit into the pair that was 2 sizes smaller than i used to wear!)

i did NOT have a bad backache one night from 1-4:30 am. so i did NOT lie on the bathroom floor because it was the only thing that somewhat helped. yes, the bathroom floor that had NOT gone uncleaned for 2 weeks... and just to top things off i did NOT grab the used bath towel and proceed to use it as a blanket.

it has NOT gotten incredibly HOT here, so i did NOT finally get samantha's pool out this summer. and one sweltering afternoon, my sister and i did NOT decide to put on our suits and hop in samantha's kiddie pool with her, despite the redneckish feeling we had while sitting in it! it was NOT incredibly relaxing and refreshing. and in the 12 inches of water? well, we did NOT get totally and completely drenched!

yesterday as the heat index approached 101 degrees outside, i was NOT sickened when samantha said to me, "mom, i'm cold." and then she most certainly did NOT curl up in a heavy blanket...

i am NOT anticipating having ben home tonight. he has NOT spent the last 2+ weeks working super hard and super late (last night he did NOT work until 2am...). so tonight will NOT be my first time of real cooking in over a month!

happy monday everyone!
