Not Me Monday!

This is my first time participating in a "Not Me Monday" so early on a Monday morning!
I'm going for #1, baby!

Seriously, I am just happy to be nominated. (WAIT~Why do I sound like I just won an Oscar or something?) Back to topic at hand......I was NOT super excited and giddy as I started reloading MckMama's blog over and over and over again this morning, that would be silly. Nope, not me.

Actually, I could just bust from excitement,since this will be the first one done since Stellan's return home.

But before that.....I must repent.

I was NOT slightly extremely relieved when the kids left this morning, so I could crash on the couch with a huge cup of coffee and relish in the peace and quiet. That would be quite selfish and borderline un-motherly of me, no? Nope, not me.

What: Family Reunion 2009
Where: Rural Backwoods, NC
When: May 3, 2009
Why: ............insert *sarcasm* here

I did NOT ride to My Rock's family reunion yesterday in the backseat of our family SUV with our Sun and Flower yesterday (see explanation as to why I was relieved this morning) and knowingly ride 30 minutes in the wrong direction because My Rock and my bil KNEW they were going the right way.

I knew they weren't...

but I just sat back there rather than attempt to reason with men and their senses of "mis"direction. Nope, not me. I also did NOT smile with an evil-tinged, all-knowing grin when they realized we had just made a huge detour through the country in the wrong direction. Nope, not me. *evil grin*

I am just a "scenic route" kinda gal.

I did NOT let My Sun and My Flower run around most of the day at the Family Reunion with no socks and shoes on because
"all the other kids were doing it"
at the aforementioned family reunion. Nope, not me. I ALSO did NOT have to do deep-breathing exercises as they did so in a feeble attempt to suppress my mounting anxiety due to
"letting kids be kids"
(according to one nosy, anonymous Aunt whose name I honestly do not even know) and run around and get there feet so gross and dirty.
One thing I can't stand more than feet, is dirty feet.
More specifically, dirty feet ON clean sheets.

Grrroooooooooosssss!! I did NOT cringe when I looked at my kids feet all the way home. Nope, not me.

No, really, I am not OCD, Nope, not me! On that note....
I did NOT just pause this blog entry to hit reload AGAIN on MckMama's blog. That would be borderline downright obsessive. Nope, not me.

I did NOT-double-NOT go to see X-Men Origins: Wolverine this past weekend and lust after the four gorgeous men in this movie. Hugh Jackman, Ryan Reynolds, Taylor Kitsch, Liev Schreiber, and HUGE JACKMAN. Nope, not me.

Actually, that is FIVE sexy men. I am sorry, due to dizzying side effects of topic at hand, I lost count.

I am a MOM for goodness sakes, let's act like one. It wasn't me, I tell ya! Ladies, it is a must-see. Wow, I REALLY have no words.

Editted: My lawyers made me do this.
I can not be responsible for any damage that may occur to keyboards and/or laptops due to any drooling or wet-panting that may directly or indirectly result from any Hugh Jackman pictures that I may or may not post on

Thank you.

Mommas, drool on. Believe me, I understand.

And finally, and more motherly in nature, My Sun and Flower (AKA My kids) are NOT so familiar with Mckmama's blog and Stellan's miracle story that they claim to see "Baby Stellan" everywhere we go, in many different public places, no matter where we go.
"Momma, LOOK! Is that Baby Stellan?"
I swear, they are on the look-out.
Is it sweet? Is it peculiar? Does it suggest that I spend too much time on the internet *GaSp* when they are home?
Am I a bad mother?

Mommy-guilt kicks into overdrive.

Well, just so you know......

I THINK it is super super-duper fantastically sweet, so THERE!

And let me tell you something else, I refuse-double-triple decker REFUSE to feel guilty because my Sun and my Flower know Baby Stellan and have witnessed his miraculous story.

And as a result they may have occasional many sightings of him here in Rural Heaven, NC.
They are just looking for a miracle.

Nothing wrong with that.

Actually, it makes me smile.
And, and I think we could all learn from that.
Welcome home, Stellan!

MckMama, thank YOU so much for allowing us to witness his journey,
and we are so happy you two are back home where you belong!

Have a blessed Monday, all!

Loved your Not Me's! Laughed my butt off!

Speaking of butts.... I saw Hugh on Oprah (!) and they showed a clip where he was running around naked?! That peaked my interest! We have a sitter planned for Saturday so we can go see it. LOL!

P.S. Men should not be allowed to navigate - period.

Sorry I got in before you! I know that excitement you have! However, C.C. has been at the top several times and I have no idea how! I post my NMM and then copy the link to it. That way, when Mr. Linky is up, all I have to do is paste and type my name. Maybe that will help ya a little! Great post! :)

Wow- what a great 1st posting for Not Me! Mondays! I too am OCD about clean feet. (Lot's of other things too) but man I can't stand feet and your picture w/dirty feet on clean white sheets almost sent me into a panic attack. *breathe deeply*
