Not Me Monday August 24, 2009

I'm joining Mckmama over at My Charming Kids for a fun meme.

Her goes my day in "Not Me" fashion. Enjoy!

I did not wake up two times during the night with an aching mouth and take pain reliever. I did not call the dentist first thing in the morning only to find out that he was not on vacation. I did not call his emergency number and I did not have to leave a message. I did not wait an hour or so for him to call back. I did not have some important errands to run. The dentist did not then call while I was gone.

I did not call him back and he did not ask me questions and suggest Vicadin and say "I'll be back in the office on Wednesday. I did not say that I would just keep taking pain reliever every three hours and see him on Wednesday.

I did not think that it would be a good day to take the kids to get some shoes for school. My sister did not call and say she was going to the super mall today. I did not say, I was thinking of going too.

I did not leave the house at almost 2:00pm to head to the super mall. The traffic was not backed up and not really moving much. It did not take 40 minutes to drive to the mall which should not take only 15 to 20 minutes.

I did not hear my phone ring and I did not talk to my sister who was not very close to the store we came in through. We did not find shoes. We did not try to get my son to buy some more clothes with his school money. He did not refuse to shop any more.

We did not go to the food court and find refreshing snacks and Mochas. We did not say our good byes and go our separate ways home. We did not get home in 15 minutes or less.

It was not a fun day in spite of the pain I did not have. We are not happy that we did not find shoes. This not the end, or is it?


  1. So that's where you were. My child was trying to get a hold of your child while we were running a couple of errands.

    That particular stretch of road is always backed up, it's just awful. But it's not usually as bad at 2:00 as it is at 4:00. I can't believe it was so bad!

    Oh definitely do a part III!
    Sorry about your tooth and glad you got some pain pills!

  2. my tooth has been hurting too. I probably should call my dentist before he takes off for vacation:)

  3. Hope you get that tooth taken care of quickly. My kids think that the food court is the funnest part of shopping! LOL

  4. Well, hey.... at least it was a MISSION ACCOMPLISHED on finding... or NOT finding the shoes. =0)

    Sorry you're hurting. I hope you make it through to Wednesday. =0(

  5. Wow, this is a very fun meme! Fun to read anyway... sorry you are in pain though :(

  6. I'm dizzy...

    Yes, it was fun reading this.

  7. Hello Nannette,

    I am sorry about your tooth; this is now Wednesday, so I hope you are able to have it taken care of today. I always wonder what I will do when one day there is on longer pain reliever available…scary thought. :)


  8. Hey, Nannette~

    I just get a kick out of reading "Not Me Monday" posts. I am sorry about your teeth. Were you able to get to the dentist today?

    I hope all is well!

    Blessings, sweet friend~

  9. kids shoe shopping and toothaches all in one post... what a day you had!!! (or didn't have..?)

  10. Nanette,
    I have an award that I would like to pass along and share with you. Please stop by some time today and pick it up when you can.

  11. Thanks everyone! We did get shoes. It was kind of confusing wasn't it?
