Not Me Monday! I Am NOT Adding More Prizes to My Monster Giveaway..or am I???



NOT ME Monday is brought to you by the fabulous MckMama over at My Charming Kids. Please send your well wishes for her wee Stellan. He needs our love and prayers. Thanks!


I did NOT curl up and rock back and forth sucking my thumb in a dark corner for hours last week because of the stupid surge that sent my laptop to the Geek Squad hospital during my MONSTER giveaway. I would NOT act like such a baby. Also, I did NOT cry so hard on Tuesday (and Wednesday) that my right eye was actually swollen shut for a while. I would NOT be so emotional over a computer. My son did NOT tell me I was EMO because I did NOT wear black all week and act depressed.

I did NOT stand in the middle of my yard shaking my fist to the heavens and yell (in my Scarlett O'Hara voice) "As God as my witness, I will never be laptop free again!"



I also did NOT roll around in agony in my yard screaming.."WHY? WHY? WHY is this crap happening to me!!!!???? Why this week????""

I did NOT feel HORRIBLE because I was unable to comment, say hi to my new bloggy friends and visit blogs due to my lack of computer access all week. My family did NOT tell me to seek therapy for this. I did NOT tell them to shove their therapy talk where the sun doesn't shine.

I did NOT gasp out loud when passing by this magazine at Borders. I am a grown woman and that would NOT be appropriate. Also, I did NOT whistle when I looked inside this magazine that I did NOT pick up and flip through. People did NOT stare at me and shake their heads in pity.



I did NOT receive a terse note from the Easter Bunny reminding me that as of 6:30 pm on Saturday evening I still had no egg dye or candy for the kids. He did NOT sign the note "Smooth Move, Exlax." The Easter Bunny is NOT that rude.

Chilly did NOT ask me what I got him for Easter. After pausing for several seconds, I did NOT say, "uh...that would be a big nada." He did NOT then reply..."Wait you just did...You just gave me 3 minutes of silence." Chilly is NOT that big of a NeRdAnDeRtHaL!

Catherine did NOT freak out over how the Easter Bunny was going to enter our home. She did NOT go into a begging spasm at Hallmark when she found this. I did NOT buy this because I do NOT give in to tantrums. (you can totally tell I'm lying, can't you....you know this freakin' key is hanging on my door...don't you...)



I did NOT have a FABULOUS time making Easter dinner with Cat (age 6) for the first time. We did NOT make this feast while dancing around the kitchen in rabbit ears and singing songs from "iCarly." I would NEVER behave like such a whack job in front of my child.

I am NOT happily adding FIVE more prizes to the giveaway because I am NOT grateful for all of your kind understanding and support during my laptop's illness. I would NOT be so desperate for you all to like me. NO, NOT ME....

And I am NOT adding a few more days for the giveaway to give you plenty of time to enter! I would NOT be so helpful.

I will NOT accept entries until Friday, April 17. (ok...so maybe I will...) I will NOT announce the winners on Monday, April 20. (ok...so maybe I'll do that too... Be sure to check back on Monday!)

(I will be announcing the additional prizes in a post later today! I still have a few things I may want to add...(yep...it may even be more than 5!) I'm still kicking a few nifty prize ideas around. If you check back for that post and leave a comment, it will count as another entry! I know...I am a crazy woman!

Hugs and smoochies to you all!!!!

dawn

p.s. I tried to do some stalking from Chilly's office over the weekend, but only had a short time to do so....Miss Kitty became ill and we needed to scoot back home to get her all better for the Easter Bunny's visit! I PROMISE you I will be back to commenting as soon as my laptop is repaired! I PROMISE! Hope you don't give up on me! I love to comment...I do! This whole thing has been a nightmare for me! lol!

Oh, Dawn!!! I do NOT think you are the most amusing and amazing blogger I have found and I do NOT think it would be a hoot to meet you and spend an afternoon flapping our gums over nonsense...Also...you do NOT always brighten my days with your killer sense of humor.

(And I did NOT drool over that very same GQ either...same on those women...shame!)

*laffz @ the fact that 4 NOTS were all laptop oriented*
Kat said…
I totally did NOT have a hissy fit when my laptop died on Thursday and I did NOT act like a crazy woman on Friday when I realized the movers killed my desktop computer and I certainly did NOT go out and buy a NEW MACBOOK because I was so pissed off.
Beth said…
Nerdanderthal! OMG! That is my word of the day.

Thank you. Really, thank you!

P.S. Laptop issues warrant all of the above behaviors or else you might find yourself being hugged in a jacket with strings in the back.
The Blonde Duck said…

Mother Mayhem said…
I did NOT believe a word you just said. Especially about the magazine. Chortle.
Family said…
Well sign me up! Just glad to know that you are not a whack job in front of your child like me. Have a great day! Came over from Devri's!
Noah's Mommy said…

Kate said…

Kathy B! said…

You didn't cry over your laptop? That's amazing. I.would.have.died.
Whitney said…
Holy Handgranade! How are you still adding prizes?!

And you still don't have a lap top? Weren't you promised a healthy lap top after 3 days?! Those jerks!
Randi Troxell said…
im so sad... all i got from this post was... edward, edward, edward, edward, edward... hehe!!
Ter said…
I did NOT cry because my internet was down all afternoon yesterday.

I do NOT understand how you feel.
Tracy said…
You are such a nutball! hahahaa!! Of course we understand your lappy sadness and dont hold it against you! :)
Kristina P. said…
I did not pass that same cover and punch him in the face.
Dedene said…
Must have been that darned easter bunny who broke your connection. Don't worry, we love you.

Heather said…
Why did yo have to say anything about that magazine? Now I'm going to feel like such a dork when I ask my husband to pick one up for me!
Em said…
Oh my - how I adore you!!

(and no, I'm not sucking up)

"Smooth move, Exlax"

Bwaahahhaa! I'm still laughing.

And Hubs and I had a similar conversation - him "um, what did you get me for Easter?" me "um, nothing but my sweet lovin." him - "good, because I didn't get you anything either."

Say what?

Still sending good laptop thoughts!! E
jill said…
I did NOT have a great visual of the Easter dinner silliness. I did NOT laugh at your Scarlett reference. I did NOT enjoy myself at all while reading this and i probably WON'T check back later to see what cool stuff you're adding. =D
Deb said…
you're starting to scare me with this giveaway. it may be setting some sort of giveaway record.
pam said…
Hope Kat got feeling better in time for the Easter bunny's visit. I LOVE that key. I wish I was going by Hallmark sometime soon to see if there is any reduced:)

So, you enjoy iCarly at your house as well. My kids LOVE it!!

Please swing by when you can and vote for me in a photo contest.

Thanks

You are hysterical! And I am NOT making that up ;)

and I'm NOT sure I believe you about the magazine cover (wink, wink!)

Robyn Jones said…
As usual Dawn, you are amazingly funny...I did not join this meme, but
I DID NOT just stand in my kitchen for the last ten minutes yelling into the silent room that I am sick and tired of not fitting into my said home, and having things drop on my head every two minutes. I would not be that ungrateful....LOL!

Sorry about your computer....I am glad you are all better now..

ok...well after reading your post...at least a little better...

well.....
Jennifer Jensen said…
Dawn- I completely relate to your computer issues. My work computer crashed for over a week due to a freaking virus that I DID not get from downloading stuff :) (according to my boss, it was from going to facebook while on the clock). I felt completely lost without my work computer but I was lucky to have my personal lap top as a back up. Thanks for the funny post!
mommaof4wife2r said…
who knew the easter bunny had such great candor!
Momo Fali said…
If anything ever happens to my laptop I'm going to have to take some of my dog's tranquilizers!
Jenners said…
As a new disciple of the Twilight books, I did NOT just get a little bit why Robert Pattison was cast as Edward. I did not just try to open the photos bigger to lust after him a little bit. I did not contemplate going to get this magazine myself. I did NOT think that perhaps we were separated at birth sisters because we seem so similar in so many ways.
The Motherboard said…
I would be in an institution already if my laptop died.
StampinMom said…
Oh no you didn't just post those hot pics of Rob...oh no, you wouldn't do that to me! And 5 more prizes...geez girly, you are rockin!' So glad you got your laptop back.

Jamie :-)
Vickie said…
I am not really into that Twilight dude, but I have to say that second picture of him standing is a little smokin'.

Wow, this is fantastic that you are giving away so much stuff!
Michelle said…
You are cracking me up! Do you suppose that the key is on clearance now? :)
Tink said…
OMGosh! You did NOT make me laugh and spit out my drink while reading your post! :) Love your sense of humor! I hope your computer gets fixed soon!
Shannon said…
I may have bought that same magazine.

Which may or may not have earned an eye roll from my husband.
Cadance said…
you are serioulsy funny! Hope you lap-top is all better now! Those ARE scary times! =)
I would never curl up and suck my thumb just because I'm without a laptop! Not me, either, not ever. hhahaha! And whew boy, that magazine... I think I'm in love... and I'm certainly NOT a grown woman! (yes, I lie, too.)
Debbie said…
I can just picture you doing that when you spotted the magazine! Thanks for that image.
Donnetta said…
I certainly do NOT drool over THAT sweet young eye candy!


And the Easter Bunny!! ROOOOOOOD!
Raven said…
i do NOT think you're funny at all...or mabie I DO! :)
hee hee

Yer too cute! ...Sorry I've been MIA on yer bloggy posts...We're just crazy trying to get ready for our art show this weekend. Thanks for extending the give-a-way...I'm happy that I didn't miss entering.

Hope you really DID have a Happy Easter!

(Update! Comments are now closed for the Monster Giveaway! Thank you for participating!)

Whooo's 100?

I am! This is my 100th post!

To say I am astonished and humbled by the incredible support of my blog from fellow bloggers, friends and family would be an ginormous understatement! I am truly, deeply grateful that ya’ll stop by and visit me! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

(I had this scheduled to post at midnight, but for some reason, it didn't! I got up to check it about 1:30 am and discovered blogger's mischief! Sorry if you came by then!)

All righty then…do you have a cup of coffee, hot cocoa, tea, martini? How about a masseuse? You’re gonna need it! It’s my 100th post and by the time you are done reading it, you’ll probably feel as old and tired as Rip Van Winkle! You know me and my long winded rambley-ness! (....the giveaway is here..I promise!)

So, this is what I’ve come to know about blogging in the last 100 days….

Blogging is like taking a vacation to a place you never k…

A Wee Drop of Irish (or Cloudy With a Chance of B*tchy Part 2)

Happy St. Patrick's Day! How about a wee stroll down memory lane?  Thank you to everyone who messaged me about sharing this blast from the past again this year:)  (yes, Maureen...I do read your emails too!)  Even though it was originally posted in 2009, not too much has changed (says Dawn in her "I can't believe I have PMS every single year at this same time"  happy (think Pharrell singing "Happy") voice.  So grab a cup of Irish coffee, Jameson whiskey, Guinness or whatever suits your fancy on this fine St. Patrick's Day and let me share a tale of whimsy with you.  (and may the luck of the Irish be with you if you come my way today!  Don't say I didn't warn you!)   



Oops! What's she doing here again? Wasn't she just here a month ago? UGH! The nerve! We had so much "fun" last time she was here, didn't we? 

Well, since I have a full day of Irish activities planned, I guess I better be gettin' my Irish on....hmm...let's s…

Chilly Update...

I hate this disease with a passion...more on that in a moment...

First and foremost, there aren't enough words in the English language to convey my most sincere gratitude for the amazing love and support you've all shared with my family. I am completely overwhelmed and very humbled by it all. I've shared all of your comments and emails with Chilly and the kiddos. It has meant so much to us! Thank you, thank you and thank you again!

I wish I could write that Chilly is fine and coming home tomorrow. I wish I could go back to last Friday when every fiber of my being was screaming at me that Chilly was having a heart attack. I wish I would have pinned him to the ground and shoved an aspirin down his throat when he put me off about his symptoms. I wish he would have agreed to go to the ER...Sadly, I can't turn back time...

We were told today that Chilly has suffered a stroke in addition to a heart attack. These two events occured together...meaning, he had the stroke w…
