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.
(but don't forget to check out the youtube clip from last post....because, well, it contains my awesome brother [on the right] and his friend James doing a cover of David Bowie's "Space Oddity".... and it pretty much rocks my socks.)

This morning, my beautiful angel did NOT take it upon himself to remove himself from his crib. Nope, I didn't wake up to his crying and decide to use the restroom before retrieving him, but half way through the trip to the restroom, I did NOT hear a ginormous THUMP and then screaming! Nope, none of that happened. And I didn't rush to his bedroom to find him standing in his floor with blood coming from his mouth. He did NOT bite his tongue on his little excursion... no indeed! All's well, though... turns out it was a small cut on his tongue... but I was NOT completely freaked when even his drool was rusty-colored!

Yesterday, I did NOT lie to a beggar about not having any money because I was 99.9% convinced he was going to use that money for drugs. That man is NOT always in our Wal-Mart parking lot, begging people for change. We DON'T see him every single time. And even though I know that's what he was NOT going to use the money for, I still did NOT feel bad for lying to the guy.

I am NOT listening to my 1-year-old bawling his head off because he is in time-out for one minute. He DOESN'T have a major fascination with dumping over the dog's water bowl. We DON'T keep it high on the table during the day while he's awake (or take it outside) so his little paws will stay away, but he did NOT figure out a way to reach it on the table! My table and floors are NOT drenched. (And, of course, I did NOT just get him out of timeout and kiss his little wet-from-tears cheeks and give him lots of hugs....nope, not me! Don't let anybody tell you different!)

He's NOT yelling "I CRYYYYY" as loud as he can right now. :)

I think that's all I did NOT do recently...I will NOT let you know throughout the day if something changes!

Nate control to major James

First, I have to say........ I have heartburn. Like, a lot.
Secondly, I have to say.......I'm sick and tired of meth-addicted bums coming up to me and asking me for money. Because 1) it makes me feel bad to turn them down (but hi, not interested in funding your addiction, thanks anyway) and 2) they need to get HELP, and NOT the same HELP they get from the food bank, homeless shelter, government, etc... all feeding their habits.
And most importantly, THIS is my brother. (On the right.) He is THE most talented man on earth. Fact, not opinion.

I've only lost 2 pounds so far. (Let me clarify that. I've lost 7 pounds so far, but 5 of those pounds were put on at Christmastime and should have never been there to begin with. SO really I count where my weight really should have been instead of the scary SCARY number my weight was when I actually started the diet. So there.) But that's okay because I feel better when I eat right. I've almost eliminated sodas (go me!) and have only been drinking water and green tea, really. I try to eat an apple a day (because it keeps the doctor away! Plus it's pretty much the only fruit on the shelves right now that doesn't look like shriveled up yuckness)... and I've been eating my fair share of Lean Cuisines (which I love, by the way. They've gotten so good since the last time I dieted! Why didn't you tell me?!?) But money situations won't let me eat expensive diet meals forever, so I have to learn to make my OWN meals with few calories and fats and sodiums and whatnot. But I'm too lazy at the moment.

My throat hurts too. Entirely unrelated, but relevant anyway because HI IT'S MY BLOG!

Oh yeah, and I'm grumpy. See ya!

I've got my lunch packed shoes tied tight...

... I hope I don't get in a fight!

OHHH back to school....back to school...

Great, now that's going to be stuck in my head forevereverever.
That was THE shortest 2 weeks of my life. Yep.

Oh well, at least we're on the downhill slope now...starting the 2nd semester... only about 3.5 months of studying before the BIG TEST in April...then school can kinda be fun again. You know, for the remainder of April and what we have to complete of May. YESSSS.

My left leg hurts for no reason. I will have to insist upon it stopping or I will be removing it. With my scissors. They have a pink handle.

If I don't go to bed soon, I am going to be impossible to wake up tomorrow. True story.

I'm kinda hyper though.

Ahhhhhhhhhhh back to schoooooool...back to prove to dad that I'm not a fool.....

I am completely and utterly blog-stupid.

I have no IDEA how to customize my blog beyond what I've already done. I am very e-dumb. So here's my weightloss ticker. Make me accountable, yes?">

No, seriously.

My resolutions for 2009, and only people....get to read them!

1) Lose 30 pounds before I begin the TTC process in July.
2) If number 1 is accomplished, start TTC in July.
3) Be a happier person.
4) Slowly but surely end my addiction to caffeine.
5) Be more organized in every aspect of my life.
6) Not say anything negative about myself. At all. Well, at least try.

I think that's plenty, don't you?
