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.

I am not having Internet issues.

And I am not pointing my finger at my Internet provider.

Nope, not me.

I have not started recording each and every time it goes out.

Which is not turning into a book.

And it is not aggravating my carpal tunnel.

I am not on a first name basis with the Supervisor of Field Operations.

And I certainly do not have his cell phone number on my speed dial.

I am quite sure that if I had his number, which I do not, he would wish I didn't.

I have not called him ninety bazillion times.

I am also pretty sure bazillion is not a word.


I really do not need my Internet connection to last more than ten minutes.

I am superinternetwoman.

I don't have addictions blogs tweets email that needs to be checked.

Nope, not me.

What about you?

What haven't you done this week?

Mystery Solved

Well here I am.


My Internet provider thought it would be fun to redo some lines for the last 24 hours.

Which has caused me great pain and anguish.

And possibly a rash.

And obviously very limited access to my beloved computer.

And you.

So without further ado...

I give you Cole's grocery list.

It is so obvious now...right?

I thought so.

I enjoyed all of your guesses.

And yet only one of you came close.

Congratulations Kimberly!

I will be sending you a large box of chocolate bars very shortly.

Thanks to all of you for playing.

Happy Wednesday!

The Mystery Grocery List

I was making my grocery list the other day.




I asked the kids if they would add to it.

They happily added:



Ice Cream.

You know, the staples around here.

Then Cole brought me a list he had made.

He can't write yet so he drew me his list.

How adorable is that?

Can you guess what it is?

I know it is quite obvious, but in case there is any doubt, let me share.


What about tomorrow?

I am dying to see what you think they are.

There will be a prize for the one with the most correct answers.

Happy guessing!

Where In The World Is Wendi?

I am here.

I wish I could tell you I had been whisked away to some remote, tropical island.

That my friends did not happen.

You family of three computers became a family of ONE computer.


And while the computer dude is busy adding more RAM, I have had to learn to share.

Have I mentioned I am not good at the sharing?

I am not.

Especially when it involves the vehicle to all my news weather stock reports entertainment.

Namely blogging and twittering.

Today I have announced to all that the laptop is MINE!

And MINE alone.

We will see how long my selfishness lasts.

I've Still Got It...maybe

We entered the pizza establishment buzzing with loud laughter and silly giggles.

We had been seated in a secluded area of the restaurant for obvious reasons.

We found ourselves separated from the rest of the pizza population by a small partition.

The birthday girl and her friends made their way to the buffet and returned with loaded plates.

I followed.

I was just before ingesting a large mouthful of salad when a waitress from another section of the restaurant came over and sat down across from me.

"Is there a problem?", I asked.

No, she replied.

"One of my customers was wondering if you were married?"


I can't remember if I spit the lettuce out or if I managed to choke it down.

I just sat there with my mouth gaping open.

"Are you joking?" was all that I could utter.

"No, my customer asked me to come over here and find out if you were married or not."

"Yes, I am married."

As quickly as I answered she was gone.

But wait.

I didn't ask her who was asking.

Not that it mattered of course.

But it did matter.

And I couldn't just stand up and peer over the partition.

I tried to recall the guests I saw upon out arrival.


There was an older gentleman walking with a cane.

The younger college guys in the corner.

And then there was that one woman with the asymmetrical haircut that.....nah.

I will never know.

I was too chicken to look over and scan the restaurant.

I wanted to bask in the moment that I still had it.

Then my Claire brought me back to reality.

"It was probably that "M" on your forehead."

"Thanks Claire, I will add Married to the list of things my wrinkle stands for!"

Not Me! Monday

Welcome to Not Me! Monday!

This blog carnival was created by MckMama.

You can head over to her blog to see what everyone else has not been doing this week.

I did not have every intention to post daily on my blog last week.

I did not fail miserably.

I do not miss my blog buddies.

And their comments.

I do not feel validated when they leave them.

Nope, not me.

When Claire asked me for a sleepover for her birthday, I did not say, "No!"

And I certainly did not say it two seconds after she asked.

I would need time to think about it.

Which of course would not take two seconds.

And when she asked me for the second tenth twentieth time I did not answer with a resounding, "No!"

She did not finally get the message.

I did not offer to take her and a few friends to dinner and a movie.

She did not take me up on the offer.

I did not spend my Friday night with giggling, talkative, oh so dramatic ten-year-old girls.

And it was not one of the easiest parties ever.

I did not get "hit on" while attending said party.

More details will not show up in a future post.

What about you?

What haven't you done this week?

I would love to know!

Join all the fessing up over at MckMama's place.
