Not Me Monday

Mckmama- Not Me Monday

So this week I did not come down with a wicked cold. I was not out of commission for two days. I did not lay on the couch and refuse to let anyone in the house except for my husband. My sister-in-law did not bring me a very much needed care package with medicine, magazines and orange juice and I did not have her leave it on my front porch. I did not hunker down and pretend I wasn't at home when our neighbors came by to buy our old fridge. Not me.

I did not have a "deadline" on Friday to get some shower decorations done for my brother and sister-in-law's baby shower 5 states away. I did not need to get the package in the mail by the end of the day. Of course I had not procrastinated on this until it was down to the wire. No. Not me. Never.

I did not set up shop at the kitchen table with my kleenex boxes, hand sanitizer and giant glass of fluids and work through the sickness.

I did not power through the day self-medicating with Sudafed non-drying sinus (the miracle pill), Mucinex, Zyrtec, nasel spray and alternating Tylenol and Advil. 


Throughout the process I was not having fun even though I was ill. I do not find great joy in making things. Not me ever. 

I did not break out my interior design drafting/model tools. They are now not being used for completely different purposes than they were originally purchased for. However I do not think this is wonderful. Why not?

These are not the first nephews on my side of the family. We are not all very excited. 

I did not get the package in the mail on time. I was not super excited and happy to contribute even though I will not be able to attend the shower. 

I did not go right back to the couch after I got back from the post office. Nope not me.


  1. Awesome decorations! Wish I could have seen them in person, or helped out! honest! (except for the cutting, of course!)

  2. Okay, I just had to tell you this.
    When I typed the above comment, the word verification that popped up was:


    I thought you would find that funny. Sounds like something the Sparrow would say.
