Not Me Monday

If you haven't checked out this chic's blog, you really need to! Her family is amazing, she's funny and witty, and not to mention, she's had over 2 MILLION visits! Wow, that's a lot! I have spent many a nights reading her posts from way back when to catch up!

Mondays are her "Not me Monday" posts which are so cute! She encourages everyone to participate, so here goes!

So the kids were out of school last week and they did not wake me up at 6 a.m. one morning. Nope and I did not tell them to go fix their own cereal. And they did not come back and tell me they had not made a mess. And, of course, I did not walk into my kitchen to a floor full of milk. What wasn't I thinking??!!


This was not the first year I cooked Thanksgiving dinner, by myself. I did not take the easy way out and buy a turkey from Honey Baked Ham. I did not fix stuffing, mashed potatoes, mac n cheese, and gravy, all from boxes. Nope, I slaved all morning at the stove and I did not have my whole Thanksgiving dinner cook in under 30 minutes! (Rachel Ray would have been proud!)


One last one....
It does not take a whole loaf of bread to feed my family grill cheese sandwiches. And while I was not using the whole loaf, I did not need a stick of butter, softened, to butter the bread. I did not think I could softened the butter in the microwave, for just a second. I did not put the stick of butter directly in the microwave. And it did not start flying sparks because of the metal wrapper. So I did not take it out, unwrap it, and put it back. And I most certainly did not open the microwave back up to find the entire stick, melted in the microwave, and I did not realize then I should have atleast put it on plate or in a bowl!

Nope, Not Me!!
