Its Monday and It wasn't ME


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.



Hmmm, Ken and I did NOT have an audience as we successfully (for once in our whole relationship) navigated the grocery store without spending $120 or arguing about what we can or cannot buy. Ken + food shopping = $120 a week with more cookies, chips, soda and ice cream than meals. While I can manage 7 meals, a few snacks, 7 lunches, soda, and all necessities for about $50 to $60. IF this had happened, I wouldn't have found it heart warming that an older couple stopped us to say that we were so cute to watch, because THEY still had not mastered grocery shopping together. Plus, we would NEVER play rock-paper-scissor to find out which bank account the food came out of. I WON!!!!

What kind of wife is overjoyed to be away for a week on business while her husband tries to quit smoking? NOT ME ok ok..YES.....ME....ME.....He is is pure evil when trying to do this and I seem to be far more supportive from 300 miles away. As I told him, I'll love him no matter what, but he is much more likable from this distance right now.

I did NOT buy the cutest summer top at Walmart yesterday, nope NOT ME, because I am a loyal Target shopper and have a laundry list of reasons why I don't go to Walmart ( 30 people in line and only three checkout lanes open......the fact that they low ball there distributors in order to have low low prices..........dirty store........parents who allow their children to run and scream as they are Wild things....... So, all I can say is there "might" be a small chink in my anti-Walmart campaign. That George stuff is kind of cute! What can I say....we received a Walmart gift card for a wedding gift and it was about to expire soon.

I did NOT get so caught up in baby fever that I began a wish list at babies'R'us. Nope, NOT ME. Not preggers yet, but its all in God's hands. But, shhhhhh........... under my rules, Ken and I are not telling any one until we are pregnant and beyond that early miscarriage zone. But, not like I'm telling any one really. You guys are more like observers of my internal thoughts, really.

So what have you NOT done this week?

Oh, and I agree. Some of Wal-Marts things are CUTE. =0)
