Not Me! Monday


Another week has (not) gone by. With work being busy and me hunting for an apartment in the evenings, this week did (not) go by really quickly. I have (not) been slacking on blogging and did (not) think about skipping Not Me! Monday this week.

This week I did (not) successfully find an apartment (again). This time is with a complex instead of a private owner, so I’m (not) confident it won’t fall through. I will (not) post pictures once I move in. I have (not) started the countdown to moving and then realize how much of a pain it is to change my address.

I did (not) go to the drive-in movie theater this weekend. It was (not) the first time I went to a drive-in since I was about 8 years old. Even though the movies were (not) ones I would normally pick (Transformers and Star Trek), I did (not) have a lot of fun. I am (not) already trying to plan going back next weekend.

This weekend I did (not) completely skip doing the laundry. I will (not) have to be creative for my clothes for work tomorrow. Maybe I should (not) stop blogging now and go start a load.

Head over to MckMama’s blog and see what everyone else has (not) been up to.

Crazy Product of The Week

This one is kindof funny, but I wonder who thought of it. It’s a ball for dogs that has a tongue on it.

HT-Thumb-1 They have it in different sizes – for large or small dogs.

Not Me! Monday

NotMeMonday Another week has come and gone.  There is a HUGE list of things that I did (not) do.  I will (not) bore you with all of them. Here’s some of them.

This week was (not) really, really long.   Work did (not) entail putting out one fire after another.  I am (not) complaining about work in a public forum.  I do (not) enjoy the work I do – that comes out wrong when I turn it around.  I DO enjoy the work I do.  Typically.  Most weeks.  Most parts of it.

New topic.

This week I did (not) find out that the perfect townhouse place I planned to rent is (not) going to work out.  Grrrr.  So I am (not) back to apartment hunting.  I do (not) hate apartment hunting.  Maybe if I repeat it I’ll believe it.  I do (not) hate apartment hunting, I do (not) hate apartment hunting. 

I do (not) really like using the strikethrough.

I did (not) attend my first pro baseball game this week.  Twins vs. Astros.  I did (not) have to practically beg to get someone to go with me.  All my friends did (not) have other plans for Father’s Day already (Happy Father’s Day!)  It was (not) a really good game anyway – even thought the Twins lost.

There are a LOT of other things that I did (not) do this week, but I promised I would (not) bore you with them.  Head over to MckMama’s blog to read about all the other things that were (not) done this week.

Not Me! Monday


Another week, another Not Me! Monday. I am (not) writing this late evening on Monday. I was (not) too busy visiting with my sister to write it on Sunday night.

We did (not) spend the whole weekend sleeping in, shopping, and visiting. During her visit, I did (not) take multiple pictures of a baby giraffe (check out those knobby knees),


a chipmunk,


and a sea lion (who saw my camera and stopped to pose in front of me)


and forget to take a picture of us together until I was dropping her off at the airport this morning (I’m on the right)


That’s all I’m (not) admitting to this week for Not Me! Monday. Head over to MckMama’s blog to read about all the other things people did (not) do this week.

Not Me! Monday


I did (not) almost skip Not Me! Monday today.  I was (not) still recovering from a long week last week.  That is also why I did (not) post much last week.

Last week was (not) a very long week.  I did (not) have a full week meeting that took me away from my “regular” job during the busiest week of the month.  That does (not) make for a very long week.

On the positive side, I did (not) find a place to live!  Now I do (not) feel the need to complain about apartment hunting on here.  This place was (not) actually found by a co-worker.  My current place was (not) found the same way.

This new place is (not) exactly what I was looking for.  It is (not) the right price too!!  You will (not) have to wait until I move in to get pictures.

I do (not) believe that MckMama is doing Not Me! Monday this week, but just in case, feel free to head over to her blog here.

Crazy Product of the Week

Please tell me you’ve seen commercials for Bumpits! If not, this is a piece of plastic you put in your hair to make it taller. I wish these had been around in the 80’s when I wore the poof. Not really sure what I would use it for now. They come in different colors to match your hair and different sizes – some for bangs, different heights.

main_offer_05 Maybe I’m just out of the loop!

Not Me! Monday


Another week has gone by and it’s time again to talk write about all the things that I did (not) do this week.

I do (not) hate apartment hunting.  I do (not) think that whoever invented it should die.  I did (not) text that to a friend of mine this weekend.  I did (not) spend the weekend online looking for apartments and driving around looking at apartments.  At happy hour with work friends on Friday the conversation did (not) turn to apartment hunting.   Even though it consumed my weekend, I did (not) tour any apartments in person.  I have (not) already turned in my intent to vacate, so I am (not) committed to moving.

My cat has (not) taken up staring at the back of the couch while sitting on it.  She has (not) done it enough this week that I am starting to wonder why she does it.  If you were a fly on the wall, you would (not) have seen me checking the couch to see what she was staring at.

The highlight of my week was (not) booking a trip to FL for this fall.  I was (not) really excited to find a cheap flight out for my friends’ wedding.  The wedding is (not) a couple of weeks after my sister’s baby is due, so I will (not) be in FL for two weeks for both. 

I did (not) finally break down and look into getting my drivers seat upholstery fixed.  It has (not) been torn for a few years and just now start to bother me.  Getting the piece replaced will (not) cost me several hundred dollars, so instead, I did (not) just buy a seat cover.  I (never) cut corners like that just to save some money.

There are plenty of other things I did (not) do this week, but I do (not) need to keep a list throughout the week in order to remember them.  Now, if you’ve had enough of the things I did (not) do, head over to MckMama’s to see what everyone else did (not) do.
