Not Me! Monday

It's Monday! Know what that means? Time again for Not Me! Monday. In case you haven't been introduced to Not Me! Monday, yet, here are a few details. This fun game originated with MckMama who is quite the busy woman! Here are the rules to playing, but in sum, you just list a lot of things you "didn't" (read: actually did) do this weekend/past week. All in the name of admitting that we all make mistakes and aren't perfect.

This past week...

I did not nearly run over a dog while his ten year old owner watched. (This was one of the top ten most terrifying moments of my life and it all happened in slow motion---the dog bounding into the road, me slamming on my breaks and skidding. I will always remember the look on the kid's face. I jumped out of my car, screaming if I hit the dog and the kid was like, no, he's ok. and the beautiful lab jumped all over me slobbering me with kisses. I was unbelievably happy he was ok. But, I'm pretty sure I aged ten years.)

I certainly did not squeal with delight, alarming the entire sushi bar, when my girlfriend I hadn't seen in over two years came into the restaurant.

I did not realize I was "too old" for a favorite college hangout when the music was excessively loud and I was screaming to carry on a conversation. I am only 22, I should not be annoyed by bars like that!

I did not spend over a half an hour in the card store looking for the perfect Valentine's Day card for Boy. No, I am more practical than that!

And I most definitely did not opt out of a family function to "do homework" and the moment everyone left the house, I did not put down my books and curl up to watch Soap Net. Nope, not me!

What didn't you do this week? Feel free to play along.

Glad everything turned out alright with the dog...man that would have aged me too.

Great list on what you didn't do!

1. I am so glad the dog was okay! I would be sick to my stomach for a week after that stress.
2. I am so glad you got some alone-time in the house this weekend. When I was living with my roommate in law school (and basically his girlfriend) and then I moved home afterward, I thought to myself, "I can't remember the last time I was alone."
3. The meet-up was so much fun - I think we are starting a girls night / book club for the girls in the area. I so want you to come!

Heehee, these always make me chuckle!

Thank goodness you didn't run over the pup, for both of your sakes! Sounds like he wasn't too startled. ;)

I'm so glad that you didn't hit the dog! I've done that once & sobbed for days about it.
Did you find the perfect card for Boy?

i look forward to this weekly post! I totally did not join you in scrutinizing over surfer boy's valentine's card... because i know its really not the card that matters! :)

I sadly realized how old I am this weekend too. Glad you and the doggie were ok...

So I'm finally caught up on TV and Jin is alive??!! And where is Sun's baby throughout all of this? Does she have to go back too?

It takes me forever to pick out the right card. They are all either too mushy or too cheesy.

Oh my goodness, I absolutely love your profile picture with the red heels and sneaker. So creative and cute!

I would have FREAKED out with the dog incident too!

& Why is it SO hard to buy a card? Sheesh..I spend FOREVER in the card aisle.
