Not Me! Monday

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.













Sooooo....what happened in Casa P this week?

I would never have noticed as I was getting ready to leave the house that I was wearing navy blue tights with a black skirt and black boots.

I would never have just continued on my way out the door, figuring that my boots were tall enough that no one would notice the tights.


On Sunday, I did NOT have my nieces over for a two three hour craft marathon.

I did not keep my cool the entire time.

They were not adorable.


Benjie and I are not sitting on the couch (it's currently Sunday night as I'm typing) watching Ocean's Eleven for the eight millionth time. And the second time. Tonight.


I am not very very very very excited for my upcoming trip to Miami on Thursday to walk run the Miami Marathon with Chai Lifeline on Team Lifeline.

Benjie and I have not spent a good chunk of time discussing all the places we want to eat.


I certainly was not reprimanded by the mean appliance repair man for the stinky state of my broken dishwasher.

He did not tell me that "he would fix it today but he will never work on this dishwasher again if it smells like this" (umm hello...it smelled so bad because it STOPPED WORKING mid-cycle-heck, be glad I baled out all the stinky water!)

Because I am not such a wimp, I most certainly did not apologize profusely to him for making him work in such a stench...


I did not order my new CAMERA!

I am not extremely excited for it to arrive so I can take pictures of my haul from the epic cereal endeavor of last week.

I do not also have lovely plans for a pictorial tour of my "P for Dummies" binder.


I was not insanely excited that Benjie was sick and needing antibiotics.

I was not so excited because I had a coupon for a $30 CVS gift card with a new prescription pick up.

When the first set of antibiotics did not help my virus-ridden hubby, I did not consider asking if he needed MORE antibiotics so as to procure more gift cards. This time to Walgreens.

Oh well he got well without them.


I did not bundle up all the kiddies-snow pants and all! and walk (we don't drive on Saturdays) a mile each way to a dear friend's son's Bar Mitzvah on Saturday morning.

I did not feel as if I was herding a group of very naughty sheep as we slogged through the snow.

Shana did not stop three blocks from home and proclaim that she was finished walking.

I did not completely ignore her and keep on going.

She did not change her mind and begin walking again!

I did not Thank G-d that it was Saturday and a balmy 14 degrees instead of Thursday and a frigid -6 degrees.


I did not eat Tater Tots (the kosher version, no worries) for dinner on Sunday night.


I did not learn the hard way that it is not a good idea to mention people who comment on my blog, because I managed to insult no less than four other regular commentors whom I love so much by not mentioning them.
I do love you all.


What about you?
What didn't you do this week?

I feel like you will understand the crisis I had yesterday at Jewel. When I was handing over my coupons, the cashier somehow lost my 3 $5 off coupons! She kept saying I didn't give them to her but I know I did. I looked and sounded crazy (I kept asking her to look and I even called and went back later), but I worked hard for those coupons and they were worth a lot of money. Oh well, I guess I was just supposed to spend that $. I love your NOT ME'S!

At first I thought, "Now why would she be happy her husband is sick?" Then I realized

sick = prescription = gift cards for you.

You're funny.

Oh and I can't wait to read your Porush for Dummies and see what that's all about.

I am NOT on the edge of my seat waiting for the Pictorial of "Porush for Dummies".

ummmm, the nurse in me wants to say that spending money on antibiotics for what you referred to as a "virus" is a waste, because antibiotics do not do anything for virus, but the frugality in me says, way to go on the money made from prescriptions.

Elisha! OMG I FEEL YOUR PAIN!

I was upset when that happened to me for 1 $5...but for 3? You poor thing!


Orah-
I think I need to clarify-Benjie had white spots on his tonsils so he really thought he had strep. We weren't really trying to scam gift cards.


And shut up G. You're mean.

I love this post. I have seen other people do it, and just think it's hilarious. Makes me feel better about the things that happen to me, too! Poor you with the dishwasher though!

You seriously need a 12 step program for couponing. You are out. of. control.
