Not Me Monday

It has been a while since I participated in a Not Me Monday.  But after the week I had, I knew it was time to confess my Not Me-isms. 🙂

So, 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.

It was certainly not me that wore my contacts in the opposite eyes for an entire week.  Wondering all week, what was wrong with my eyes, and my contacts!  Finally after some investigating I realized the boxes were labeled wrong.  I had really thought my eyes had suddenly gotten worse…….but apparently it was just my brain that was the problem not my eyes!

It was not me that bought this gigantic container of Jelly Belly jelly beans at Costco, and sat on the couch for almost 45 min. trying every flavor in the container and mixing and matching jelly beans to make new combos.  What fun! 🙂  Wow, and what kind of adult would do that for 45 min.?!?!  Not me of course!

It was not me  who got so excited the night before our recent BIG snowstorm, that I actually got up several times that night to check on the progress of the storm.  A tired, old mom would never do such a silly thing as that! 🙂

It was not me that called my son from the basement on my cell phone, to tell him to come downstairs for something!  No that would be so lazy of me!

It was not me who jumped from the top of what the snow plow plowed into the end of our driveway, into a big 3 ft drift like I was jumping into a swimming pool.  No I am much to old for something crazy like that. 🙂


  1. so what is your favorite combo?

    PS: How did those IEPs go? What reading program are you using? We are off today…but can’t turn my brain totally off!

  2. Love it. I’d join you in jumping into the snow!

    And those jelly belly bags from Costco are dangerous! Not that I’d know first hand, I’ve just heard it said. “Ahem”.

  3. Oh I love Jelly Belly jelly beans. Super Yummy! and yes, I’ve been known to wake up and see if there was any snow out there yet. But my friend, you are not old. You like to have too much fun to be old 😉

  4. LOL…I love Jelly Belly’s and on Sunday I wore ripped contacts to church wondering the whole service what was on my contact. That hurts so bad.
    i can just see you diving in the snow! lOL

  5. lol…the jelly bean anecdote cracked me up. which combo did ya like the best??
    We FINALLY got snow….yeah. on a day i was supposed to meet my hubby in Schenectady for lunch…didn’t happen as it is a 25 min drive for me and after the first 5 min on the road, FOUR cars were in accidents ahead of me. so…needless to say HE drove here to latham and we ate at the pasta factory. sigh… 11 yr old wild with glee..she and a friend got to finally go sledding. so…we only have 5 inches but it’s something!!

  6. My husband got a giant bag of those jelly beans and we ate them all the way to Lake Placid on our Honeymoon! Lol! I can totally relate. It reminds me of the part in Harry Potter where they are trying all those gross flavors! Hee-Hee!

    I love your pictures!
