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.

Good morning all,
It is NOT Tuesday, and I am NOT one full day late in participating in Not Me Monday.
Late?? Nope, never, ever, NOT me!

I am NOT going to be like #600 or something'another on the list....a fatal fall and far cry from my #43 position last week. This has NOT turned into a competition for me. I am NOT that person. Nope, NOT me.

Seriously, GAME ON!
I am going for #1 next week~ No survivors! LOL~ Except, next week we will be out-of-town for Memorial Day! So, just kidding.

Well, I am sure I didn't do alot of things this past week, but honestly I have been so busy that I can't remember many of them. I am NOT in denial about this, nope, NOT me.

I must have been a pretty-darn-near-perfect Mom to NOT have some things to report.

Oh, it is all coming back to me now. Some of these things may burn your ears. Hey, don't say I didn't warn you.

Since classes ended I have been working in the pharmacy ~I did NOT get approached by a patient at work asking for some "Va-Va". I had no idea what he was talking about.

I had him repeat it several times. Finally, out of sheer frustration he said " I need some Va-Va for some GOOD SEX!"

Ohhhhh, light bulb moment~ he wants Viagra.

Wow, Va-Va..... (???)

""I am sorry sir, Va-Va is NOT available without a prescription. You will need to go see your Doctor to discuss what your options are and get a Rx for a medicine that is safe for you".

To which he replies, "Well I heard Mountain Dew might work too?!"

"No, I am sorry sir, I don't think that will".

Can you believe I went through all of this with a straight face. Yep, definitely me!

Because, A true, real-life (professional) Pharmacist

would never think ANY question coming from a patient is a stupid question. I did not walk away thinking this. Nope, NOT me.

My children, the joys of my life, essential as the air I breathe, they are the epitome of my soul.

They did NOTHING this week that I needed to correct or admonish them for. They were perfect angels. I do not count to 10 every day of my life with them because they listen the first time. I did not have to threaten My Sun this morning for talking back. I did NOT have to do the "I am calling your Dad" trick. How lame! I am not THAT Mom.

My Flower has NOT started talking like a pre-teen at the ripe age of 7! I am NOT scared to death about how fast she is growing up, and what is surely coming our way. I am NOT scared about how we will handle this feisty, beautiful little girl as she gets older. She did NOT come home the other day and say "What's up, Mom?!".

I did NOT think I was a bad Mom for letting her paint her fingernails pink (WITH white polka dots). Nope, NOT me.

She is only seven after all.

We will always be the ones in control as their parents, right? They are NOT going to get the best of me, right?! They are only 9 and 7 for goodness sakes! Am I right, OR am I right?

(Please tell me what I want to hear!)

Kids don't grow up too fast, do they?
This very thought did NOT make me want to cry on several occasions this past week. Nope, NOT me.

Prayer is the only thing that is sure to get us through, folks! Pray! It works!
Lay it all out at His feet.

Your worries, your concerns, your frustrations. Leave it there.
Am I a fool to believe this?
Nope, NOT me.

Have a sun-shiny and blessed week, everyone!

It's been a competition for me too lately. I even posted mine a day early, but that did me no good!
