Not Me! Monday

Time for another dose of free therapy...in the form of 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 pay to get my hair cut and was unhappy with the cut so I had my sister cut it the way I wanted it. Nope, I have more gumption than that, so that if I didn't like the hair cut at the salon I would have certainly said something.

I did not eat an excessive amount of chocolate this weekend. I would not let PMS get to me like that. =(

I certainly did not nearly drool over the gluten free cinnamon bun that I bought from a delicious gluten free bakery. It was not unbelievably fabulous and I did not lick the plate afterward.

I did not dress extra professionally the day I had my performance review at work only to have my performance review pushed back a week. I certainly did not get pissy that I wasted my perfectly constructed outfit on nothing important.

I did not stay out until 3:00 am on Saturday night and then sleep half of the day on Sunday, causing me to not get done any homework. Nope, I realize that I am not in college anymore and I certainly prioritize better than that.

I most certainly did not make up a lie to tell the pet groomer about why I was late bringing in my cat. And that lie clearly did not involve something along the lines of, "my kids were running all over the house this morning and I couldn't get them under control." Since I do not have any kids, I would never make up some random lie like this, especially since the pet groomer didn't even care. This lie did not just randomly burst out of my mouth for no good reason at all.

That's it for this week's edition of not me Monday. As always, please play along!

I stayed out late on saturday too. Puking my guts out of course and then sleeping all day on Sunday. This caused me to not get ANY homework done what so ever. I totally understand!

The cinnamon roll sounds so good! I found a cooking light one, so I'm going to have to try that soon.

I love that you do these! I didn't stay out WAY too late on Saturday night either. :)

I LOVE that a little white lie just rolled off your tongue like that! How funny! And, the dressing up for a performance review? Don't worry, I've done it, too. And I'd totally be pissy if it was pushed back. Why waste a good outfit?

I nominated you for an award! Go check it out! :)

So funny! It's amazing how those little "excuses" just pop out. I paid a ridiculous amount of money to get my hair done and I'm not completely happy with the results. Oh well...it will grow right? Great Not Me's!

I JUST found a hair stylist that I like. It is so hard to get the idea you want on your head :-)

Next week I'll be craving chocolate and that just means more running.

Have a good week!
