Not Me! Monday — Sexy Shirts and Drawing on a Bookcase

by Dagmar Bleasdale on September 26, 2011

I’m NOT thrilled that McKMama’s Not Me! Monday is finally baaaaaack!

I almost made a somersault when I read that it’s back — I loved writing those Not Me! blog posts and my readers really enjoyed them. I did NOT beg Jennifer several times to bring it back. Well, now she has!

I did NOT let Landon draw on the back of a bookcase today while I was reorganizing the office.

Don did NOT get a job as an ESL teacher after working very hard for three months to get his TESOL certificate. He is also still working as a full-time finish carpenter and project manager, and now teaching 12 hours a week (plus many hours of preparations), so his plate is very full. I’m so proud of him and hope he ends up loving this new career.

I did NOT iron the third time in about 15 years today. Shirts that don’t need ironing? What a total lie.

I do NOT love the fact that Don now has to wear dress shirts as a teacher. I’ve been trying to get that man out of stained construction clothes into more preppy clothes — because shirts and especially sweaters on a man are soo sexy — for 7 years now and never succeeded.

I’m NOT looking for a cheap, green dry cleaner. Suggestions are welcome.

I am NOT excited about the return of MckMama’s Not Me! Monday and I did NOT enjoy reading your post. I’m definitely NOT excited for your husband. And I’m NOT thrilled that you’ll be able to see him dress up a little more each day. (I wish my husband would wear dress shirts, but he supervises construction sites and it’s just NOT practical.)

It’s so nice to be back over at your place. How have you been, friend?

No iron shirts are a total lie!

I am NOT happy, either, that Mckmama brought back the Not Me! Mondays. Nope, not happy at all :)

I did NOT see your link over at Mckmama’s blog, and I did NOT come over to say hello.

Oh, and I am NOT a new follower of your blog, either…so don’t even bother looking for my blog’s icon in the GFC Follow box :)

I haven’t read MckMama in a long time but I love NOT me Mondays! I hate ironing as well. Love your humor Dagmar.
