Not Me Monday - The MOM I'm Warning You Not To Read Edition

While running errands like a crazy woman this week, I did NOT get to the gas station and have to buy $5 worth of gas because I couldn't find my debit card. I NEVER would have left my debit card in the ATM at the bank. NOT ME.

If I had done such a stupid thing, I would NOT have been brave enough to go back to the bank and tell the teller, "I'm an Ass and I think I left my debit card in the ATM." I do have a little pride left. In the end, I would NOT have been satisfied with the fact that I got my card back and Big Chocolate never has to know as well as excited by the adventure because I had something good for my blog.

At dinner Friday night, the following did not leave my lips: "If you think I'm going to trade 'painful butt sex' for a sun-dried tomato you have lost your mind." That was a friend's description by the way. I wouldn't know. Damn the double negatives here. I really, really wouldn't know that.

Big Chocolate did NOT accuse me of being a slob Saturday for wearing sweatpants and a holy sweatshirt to the movies. I would NEVER leave the house looking like that even if I was only going to be out in public for 3 minutes with the lights on and 2 hours in the dark. I did NOT have to go with the holy sweatshirt because it was the only one I had clean.


  1. I totally agree about the movies... there's only a very short window in which you are actually SEEN. I'm sure no one noticed... now the sun-dried tomato thing is another story. Glad I found your blog!

  2. Oh. My. God. I had such a horrible Debit Card experience this weekend.. my old one will expire at the end of this month... so I cut it up THEN activated my new one... only my new one will NOT activate...

    So after a short stop at the grocery store branch of my bank, they said they cleared it all up - let me pick a new Pin# and all.. told me it worked...

    Off to Target I went. Bought a FULL FULL FULL cart - and bingo. Card doesn't work.

    Hope your Monday gets loads better :-)

    Love your blog AND the title! I'm not a follower!


  3. Wow! You went to the movies? I think anyone who knows me would probably be shocked if I just left the house! Sweatpants and a holy shirt would be a given, I think.

    Hope your week gets better!

  4. Thanks for the laugh! Of course I have never done any of those things either! ;)


  5. This makes me smile. I have never "been the ass" who left her ATM card in the ATM before. :) And sweats to a movie? I can't think of a better way to go!

  6. I have never done any of those things! By the way, my 4 year old decided it's "Opposite Day" today. So, you get the drift!

    Thanks for letting us all know we're not alone in doing crazy things on a daily basis. Cheers!

  7. ummmm....I'm telling Richard? Lol - just kidding. Add exploding breastmilk to the front of my ensemble, these days, no matter how often I feed the little one. And you can totally call them yoga pants. It sounds more chic. ;) Mine are still the maternity ones. (note - my baby is 9 months old...) And sometimes - you can totally pull something out of the laundry basket and wear it two days in a row, without your husband noticing. Just saying. This means you have to climb laundry mountain that much less frequently.

  8. I have had my debit card STOLEN by the ATM machine. Ok, kinda...

    See, I couldn't remember my pin number once, so I just kept trying and trying and trying. After the third attempt, the ATM "ate" my card and said I'd have to go inside and prove I was "me" and not a thief to get it back!

    Talk about embarassing. I feel your pain!
