Not Me Monday — A Recap of What I Did/did Not Do This Week — Huh? I Know I Don’t Get It Either, Just Read on

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 did NOT frantically search through mountains of laundry looking for a volleyball uniform which I should have had washed, folded, and ready to go early in the week.

I did NOT become totally relieved to find said volleyball uniform already washed, folded, and ready to go.

I did NOT relax when I realized that no one in my family noticed the possible mistake.

I did NOT place two farecards in the ticket machine at McPherson Square Convention Center Metro Station and then when the tickets were spit out of the machine and I saw the error message “see attendant.” I did NOT then go to the station attendant and NOT admit that I had place two cards in the machine. I did NOT make it seem as though it was an error of the Metro, NOT me. No, NOT me.

I did NOT smuggle in two cans of Diet coke, two bottles of Vitamin Water, one can of Fritos, several granola and cereal bars to a volleyball tournament where it was forbidden to bring in food or drink of any kind.

I did NOT gasp and stagger back as I saw that the concession stand were selling the following:

Foggy Bottom Burger — $8.50
Small YoPlait Yogurt — $2.75
Can of Diet Coke — $3
French Fries — $4.50

I did NOT fall over backward at the audacity of the D.C. Convention Center daring to sell food at these exorbitant prices. Huummpph!

I did NOT get totally steamed that my daughter did not play for a huge portion of one match.

I did NOT get totally psyched when my daughter then played the better part of the rest of the match.

I did NOT say to myself that the life of a parent of an athlete is full of highs and lows and ups and downs — as far as playing time for each player, effort level of each player, why some players stay on the court even when they are not playing well while other players make a mistake and immediately sub out., etc.

I did NOT scratch my head at issues which seem mysterious to me a nonathletic parent of athletes.

I did NOT jump up and down in my see as the developmental optometrist gave me an answer to why my daughter is not doing well in math this year — her eyes are not aligned. No I did NOT feel a sudden sense of relief hearing tat we may have found a reason for her inconsistent math tests.

I did NOT just write this post…I most emphatically did NOT.
