It was 77 degrees at 8 am this morning. The dew point was 75.
Can you say sticky? YEEK!
So as I sit here and drink my hot coffee on a too hot morning, I am now ready to divulge my hot-headed craziness of the past week in a Not Me! Monday post. (For more, Not Me! insanity, hop on over to MckMama's blog and join in.)
It was not me that considered smacking a woman in the grocery store the other day. (See ? hot headed!) I certainly would not have shot that woman a dirty look when she commented about Ellerie, "She's beautiful . . . (pause) but, heavy." I would have realized that some people do not have control of their speech, and consequently say hurtful things. I would not have let her one comment bother me when I know that El is just stinking beautiful, chubby baby-ness and all.

(Truthfully folks . . . does she look heavy to you? I just see all of her blond, cherubic loveliness.)
It was not me that continued to hang some accessories in my house without first patching holes in the plaster walls. I would have patched those holes first and foremost. I certainly wouldn't have strategically placed artwork and pictures over those holes. Ridiculous!
It is not me that is having a hard time going back to the gym after all of our vacations. I would realize the benefits of going to the gym, especially since I still hold a personal trainer's certificate. I would not just sleep in each summer morning (enjoying my lovely sheets and fluffy comforter) and forgo the gym and exercise. Not me! Never! And, knowing that I realize the benefits of gym participation, I would also not have eaten 2 brownies and one smore at our recent BBQ. That would have just added salt to a wound and I know better!
It was not me that washed the same load of clothes 3 times, because I continued to forget to change the load from the washer to the dryer thereby causing the wet clothes to get a bit smelly. I am more on top of the chores than that.
It was also not me that left the paint roller out for El to get after working on our kitchen remodel. Clearly, I am more responsible than that.
It was also not me that photographed the red paint on the new floor for posterity. I would have seen no humor in it whatsoever! Ha!
I feel much better after purging!
How was your week?
