Not Me Monday - 2010 - Vol. 1



I've said it before, and I'll likely say it again, the good thing about NOT doing a weekly "Not Me Monday"? When I finally get one up, I've got LOTS of fodder for it! I suspect you'll enjoy hearing about all the things I did NOT do over the last month and then you can head over to MckMama's blog and see what OTHERS are NOT doing!

I did NOT, shortly before Christmas, drive into a median, DEAD center, effectively killing the oil pan on my minivan. To my credit, as a wife who actually LISTENS to her husband, if I HAD done that, I would have, when the oil light came on, PROMPTLY pulled over and called a tow truck. Of course, I didn't run into a median so all the rest is hypothetical.

If I HAD run into said median (as discussed above) and required a tow truck to bring me home, I would NOT have, while said tow truck was backing minivan into garage, broke my ONLY house key off in the back door lock. Such a break would NOT have resulted in needing to call my husband to come home from work and let me in the house. That would NEVER happen. (Because I AM a former girl scout and would be PREPARED with a spare key somewhere accessible).

In addition to the above vehicle drama, if I had to drive my husband's car to church (due to, you know, an incapacitated oil pan), I would NOT have left the headlights in my husband's car on during our service. This action would NOT have resulted in having my vehicle jump started 36 hours after having had another vehicle towed. Never happen. I would be WAY more careful than that vehicle-wise.

Heck, I could call this the Not-Me-Monday vehicle edition.. I think I'll stop there. And save up more fodder for next week! Head on over to MckMama's and see what others have NOT done over the past week (or longer).

Oh dear, I hope your brain has started working again. I don't mean to offend you, but it's looking like your brain was on Christmas break.

Love this Not Me post! Sounds like something I would do! :)

As far the previous post, I would be so sad to about the ornament, but it's more than that really, remembering Seth is not something family should be reminded to do. That would hurt me so much also. I can't forget about Seth and I'm not family! I love the Seth bear, that's a great idea for the photo. I must have missed that pic.
Have a good day,
Millie and Colin-HLHS

Oh my goodness...this so sounds like something that would happen to me! =)

Just wanted to stop by and thank you for your comment on my blog. There are so many things that can pull us away from looking toward the Lord. It is such a battle...a constant battle.

Thank you for your prayers...I'm praying for you tonight, dear friend.
