NOT ME Monday

Ok everyone...It's that time again...NOT ME MONDAY time. Seriously MckMama and her weekly therapy sure do me wonders and the best part about it is that it is FREE therapy. We may laugh, cry, or just giggle in excitement as we share what we did not do this past week with each other. You have NOTHING to lose except maybe a little free time that draws you to read more and more Not Me Mondays!! :)

** I did not pout half of the week while my family planned an awesome trip for their Spring Break this week. Nope, I have more class than that :)

** I did not choke on a strawberry on Friday night...of course I chew all of my food fully :)

** I did not get really excited after I met with my church about my internship this summer.

** I did not stay up way too late EVERY night this week. I am also not still having trouble adjusting to the time change. For some reason, I do better when I gain an hour, not lose one.

** I am not obsessed with strawberries. Seriously, I probably ate one pound each day last week. I also did not just buy 4 more pounds today :) Really! I have way more control than that.

** I did not find a new cookie that I can actually eat and that tastes amazing. Orgran makes really good animal cookies/crackers that have NONE of my allergies. If you have any friends that have food allergies, I HIGHLY recommend these :) Ok off my soap box now :)

** I did not worry about portions over SB since I was on SB as I kept telling myself. I am now back on the wagon, but it did not feel amazing to not be precise every meal though.

** I did not have pet owners remorse when I left my dogs today. Seriously, I know they are ok, but it's not the same ;)

** I am not looking at this week's schedule and thinking what/why in the world? I know I will get through it but it's just not fair having 4 tests this week. The week after SB people! Golly gee peeps :)

** I did not have a very relaxing week this past week as I was on SB. Now I am back to reality this week. Papers are due soon and projects still need to be worked on. Reality is NOT as relaxing as SB, but I will just adjust without that extra hour of sleep.

Hope you all had a great weekend. MckMama surely rocks my world this week as I am sliding back into reality slowly but surely. Yes today may be the start of a new week, but remember to think positively. I keep telling myself that too :)

Have a great Monday!!!!

Wishing you tons of luck on your tests this week! Professors always think when they schedule tests for the week after spring break, right? Or not!

Hope your week does not go smoothly and great! Okay, so I totally do!!!

Glad you had a fun spring break! Sorry you're missing out on the trip. Why is spring break only a week?!?!

It rained here throughout our Spring Break week. I did take off ONE DAY to be with my kids and we got to go on a hike, but other than that it rained. I'm just glad we got that day together.

Go Strawberries! At least they're a fruit! =0) (or are they considered a veggie?)

Happy Monday!

amanda said...

Beth E. said...

What great Not Me's! I got a little concerned about you almost choking, though. Promise me that from now on you will chew your strawberries very carefully...golly gee peeps! ;o)

Good luck with all that is on your plate this week and hoping that the mean prof turned nice over SB! We love strawberries here, gotta love that Sam's Club sells'em for so cheap! Happy week!

Ahh, SB... I need one right now. I think i would do the same and stay up late and sleep all day. Except for the kids that is. They might interrupt me.
Good luck with the internship. I keep meaning to ask, what is your major?
