Not Me!

Even though I (well, I'm supposed to, I guess, since it's in the title and all) mostly blog about running, I'm pretty much obsessed with some blogs from many genres. I love to catch up on my real life friends' happenings, visit other running sites, read about other 20-somethings, and yes, though child-less at this time, I love a good mommy blog. Which brings me to the ultimate mommy blog: MckMama. And also brings me to Not Me! Monday (which I have never participated in before but just couldn't resist this week, because I've had many a Not Me! moment in the past week).

This weekend, I most certainly did not accidentally bake 3 cakes instead of 2. I always read directions very carefully and never double a recipe just because the original "just doesn't seem like quite enough cake."

As a result, I do not have 1.5 cakes in my refrigerator at the moment.

I most definitely did not frost the extra, spontaneous cake in leftover (from the first, intentional cake), mixed together, blue, green, and brown icing thinking it would look "creative and abstract."

I would never take such a cake to school, give it to my co-workers, and tell them my little cousin helped decorate it so I wouldn't have to explain how ugly it was.

In other news, I did not once again admit defeat to my "running-every-day-for-a-year" challenge. I would never get so overwhelmed with work (did I mention I'll be teaching two grades starting next week?), grad school, housework, and being a human being that I would say (again, again, again), "Forget it for now." Especially not in the same week as the 20 mile victory! That would be too ironic.

Speaking of irony, I certainly did not beg my husband to carry me piggy-back while walking around the neighborhood this afternoon. I'm a runner, for goodness sake...my legs would never have a hard time keeping up with my 6'3, long-strided husband.

And speaking of legs (or feet, rather)...it would never even occur to me to take off my boot and sock after school today to show my gnarly, long-run blister to my co-worker. Definitely not me! I want to keep my friends, right?

So there you have my week, from cake to feet. Appetizing, right? What did you not do this week?


  1. I just happened by from MckMama's site. I recently doubled a cookie recipe by accident. It's a little embarrassing, isn't it? :)

  2. LOL! My hubs is always showing me his running wounds...gross!! :) LOL!!

  3. I love this "not me" post. So are you teaching a combo class soon? That has to be tough.
