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.

I am NOT choosing to write this instead of doing my usual morning load of laundry before work. That would mean I am starting the week running late on a Monday morning. I am NEVER late to work. Not me!

I DID NOT stay in my PJs all day on Saturday. Even if I did, I would NOT have announced my intentions on Twitter and Facebook the night before. That would be silly!

I DID NOT expect my brother's "something to tell me" to be that he was engaged. I DID NOT scream in shock when I hung up the phone on Saturday after instead learning he and his girlfriend are having a baby. I WAS NOT surprised to find out that she is 6 weeks along.

I DID NOT call my mom, sister, and grandmother to go discuss the news with them. It was just the usual weekly call...that just HAPPENED to be after my brother called with "something to tell me."

I WAS NOT secretly thrilled to see that he had posted the news as his Facebook status so I did not have to keep it a secret. I am VERY GOOD at secrets. I DID NOT hint at the news in a past post, NOT ME!

I AM NOT thrilled to have my morning computer time back. (Not that I didn't love having you here Plunkett!) Although I DID NOT get Google Reader to work on my phone last week. Then I would be able to read blogs while waiting at Carrabbas with the Irishmen. I WOULD NEVER do that. I CERTAINLY WOULDN'T read on my phone on my lunch break. That would be silly.

I DID NOT have a student announce that his father was having surgery this week. I DID NOT almost giggle like a little girl when he came up and whispered to me that the surgery was "so that he would not have any more babies."

The two most common topics on this post ARE NOT Facebook and babies...if you've read my posts from last week you'll understand this one...I'm NOT too lazy to link back...

I DID NOT fall asleep during the 3rd quarter of the game last night. I sat up and graded all 7 sets of papers as I watched. You must have me confused with the person who fizzled out after 2 sets of papers and watched from bed slept through the rest.

I DID NOT eat half a loaf of homemade Whole Wheat Honey Banana yesterday. I am CERTAINLY NOT looking forward to finishing it off this morning for breakfast.

What did you NOT do this week?
