Not Me Monday: Luck of the Irish Cop Ditching Edition

Join in the Not Me! Monday fun brought to the land of Blog from MckMama over at My Charming Kids!

I did NOT cry tears of happy happy joy joy upon seeing this on Saturday! I was NOT a very PROUD and DELIGHTED Mommy!


I was NOT tickled to pieces seeing my sweet Catherine standing on the FIRST place podium for dancing her Irish reel! (I did NOT get really stinkin' mad that my dinosaur camera took a really bad photo of the event. I did NOT want to pitch the camera in the trash for having that stupid delay because it's sooo dang old. I do NOT want Chilly to buy me the new Canon Rebel that I went to see at Best Buy after the feis because I was NOT sad about my horible photos from our special day.)

I did NOT think Catherine looked super adorable in her curly wig showing off her medals either.

I did NOT get busted by the feis people for trying to take photos during the dancing part of the competition. They did NOT announce very loudly NO PHOTOGRAPHY OF ANY KIND WILL BE TOLERATED the minute my flash popped. I would NEVER try to break the rules to get a photo of my daughter dancing in her first feis. I do NOT think Cat looks like she has the eyes of an alien in the picture that I did NOT take during her dancing.


Catherine did NOT announce to me last night that I was letting her suffer. When I inquired as to how I was contributing to said suffering, she did NOT tell me she was thirsty and I needed to bring her a glass of water. My 6 yr old daughter is NOT a spoiled rotten diva.

The same 6 yr old did NOT keep crawling under the table at the restaurant during breakfast on Sunday. When asked why she was doing this, she did NOT reply, "Katie (Cat's invisible friend..fyi..) is hiding from the cops." She did NOT then point to the two police officers enjoying their breakfast a few tables away. We did NOT think our daughter was weird or wonder what kind of invisible friends she was hanging out with lately. Upon further questioning, it did NOT appear that the show "iCarly" had anything to do with this particular behavior. I am NOT having a meeting with the invisible friends today to tell them to knock it off.

I am NOT thinking Barbie needs a week (or ten) at the Canyon Ranch Spa in Tuscon. I will NOT be joining her because I do NOT look like this lately either. Barbie did NOT gain all of this weight by blogging...DON"T let the computer in her lap and the Chinese takeout next to her fool you...


I am NOT grateful for all of my AWESOME bloggy friends who have stuck with me during my two months of hell on earth. I will NOT be a blogstalking fool this week. I will NOT be annoying everyone with my comments on their blogs. I did NOT discover that I am now following almost 300 blogs. I am NOT in awe of Kristina P and her amazing blogstalking abilities! She is so NOT my bloggy hero.

I do NOT want you all to have a delightful week ahead of you. NO I do NOT!

xoxo

I am not so happy that you broke the rules to take those dancing pictures. :) Ok,I am--and also, go Catherine! She does look quite adorable.

And I totally got the Icarly reference..and I look like Barbie, WOO HOO finally after all of these years! :)
Jess said…
300! My goodness! I don't know my count, but it is all I can to read what I do follow! Awesome dancing skills there for the little one!
Em said…
How dare they tell a proud Mama not to take a photo.

And I did not like your reference to Ren and Stimpy. Not at all. :-)
Caitlin said…
Congratulations to your little girl and her NOT proud Momma!!! Not me Monday is NOT such a cute & fun idea!
The Dotterel said…
Oh, that's all right then. I WON'T say congratulation!!
Awww...what a great job...and you are right...you should NOT be so proud...

Stalking along with ya!!
DiPaola Momma said…
I DO NOT think that Cat is just the cutiest little lass EVER in her hoodle socks and curly wig! I SOOOO DO NOT look like Barbie in that pic myself these days. And I'm SO NOT looking forward to you hitting MY blog in your stalking!
Ashley said…
Sadly Barbie does NOT look like me right now. Ha ha. I love these Not Me Monday posts by you <3!
Yay for Catherine!
Kim said…
Ha! I had to laugh about your getting busted with the photography, because the same thing happened to me this past weekend when I took a picture of my 8-year-old in her ballet recital. "Please exhibit proper theatre etiquette."
Ter said…
I would NOT have taken a picture either. What a silly thing for them to demand of proud parents!

(did you notice the orb in the dancing photo?)
Cammie said…
YEAH CAT!!!!!!!! How very cool!!! I love that picture of her....you need to put some video up!
Bobby G said…
Im NOT wondering why Kristina P has yet to stalk my BLOG! I will not follow hers later today!
LT said…
Yea for Catherine! I would so not of tried to snap a picture too!
Funny about the hiding from the police officers, iCarly has too much influence in our house too! Have a great week.
Kathy B! said…
Congrats to your sweet little girl (and I mean she is seriously sweet with those little curls!!) on her win!

It sounds like you did NOT have an awesome week!
SO said…
Congratulations on the first place Catherine!!!
LORI said…
CONGRATS ON THE 1ST PLACE VICTORY! YEA, YOU GUYS!
Tracy said…
YAY to Cat!!! That is awesome!!

I'm a proud momma to bee of your little baby bee! {get it!? hahaha}

I swear I'm dilerious today. Please disregard any lame-ness that may have filtered through this comment.

That is all.
Jillene said…
Cat is so cute!! Congrats to her and her 1st place!!

I also love that she and her imaginary friend were hiding from the cops--hehe!!
Randi Troxell said…
she is soooo cute and first place... GO HER!!!!!!!
nikkicrumpet said…
She looks so blasted cute...and she OWNS first place. I'm cracking up over the invisible friend hiding from the cops. Hmmmm sounds like she's fallen in with a bad invisible crowd. And rumor has it that Kristina P has a ghost writer and hires out cheap non-union labor to do her blogstalking for her. Hehehe did that sound like I'm jealous? BECAUSE I AM.
Polka Dot Moon said…
She is the CUTEST!!! I would NOT have been taking pictures either ;)

Congratulations Cat!!!
LadyStyx said…
I'm following somewhere between 50-60 blogs and have been hard pressed to keep up, especially with those that put multiple entries on their pages daily. Having "those kinda days" hasnt helped much either. If I manage to keep caught up on the reading, then I never find time to write.
pam said…
Way to go Miss Cat! I am proud of you too.
Kat said…
Catherine is just too adorable! Congrats to her on her win!
Brenda Jean said…
Boy that is a lot of stuff you did NOT do! I love Catherine's outfit, her hair, her shoes and her dancing. I wish I could have been there to see her:)

As far as her pretend friend hiding from the cops, all I can do is laugh BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. What a cutie she is!
Michelle said…
Oh congratulations! How very cool for her first feis! When's the next one? ;)

And the Barbie? Someone has WAYYYYY too much time on their hands. I could use a little of it, if they could be so kind as to spare.
Kitten said…
That is a cute little picture of your daughter! Six years old and already competing...that's moxie for ya!
The Mrs. said…
AWWWWWWWWW!!! She is so cute!
Devri said…
She is the cutest first place irish chick on the block, I know, I am irish!
Cadance said…
I know...How the heck does Kristna do it???? She is my bloggy hero too!

...your daughter looks SO cute!
Badass Geek said…
I'll admit, I was confused by the format for this post. And then? I got it.

Congrats!
Lauren said…
I would have snuck the pictures too! Better to take them and then get in trouble later.
The Blonde Duck said…
Congrats on first place! Tell Cat I'll make a pie in her honor!
Jenners said…
OK...your daughter is just stinking cute! I think I'll have to issue her a citation!!!

And finally a Barbie that looks realistic and like me!! : )
Deb said…
congrats to cat! her bangs are making good progress!

i think kristina must have magical powers. that's the only explanation i can think of.
Debbie said…
Good for your daughter! No wonder you were proud.
Tink said…
That is totally fantastic! You go Cat! And I totally relate to the whole dinosaur camera thing and missing perfect shots. Maddening!
LORI said…
ARE YOU OKAY? IT'S NOT LIKE YOU TO BE GONE FOR 3 DAYS...I HOPE LIFE'S JUST BUSY--IN A GOOD WAY! I'M THINKING ABOUT YOU, MY BLOGLAND FRIEND!
Mrs4444 said…
The beauty is, if you get a decent camera, you won't even need to use a flash when taking illegal photographs! :)
Tricia said…
How sweet she looks dancing. You need to post a video so we can all watch!

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…

For Gigi ... A Letter to Heaven

Today there is a happy celebration in Heaven as it would be my beautiful grandmother Gigi's birthday.  Gigi was definitely the most important influence on my life and it became crystal clear to me how deeply when I was asked to write the eulogy for her memorial service a few years back.  I decided to send a letter directly to God explaining what amazing treasure was on it's way.  It is a letter meant to bring smiles and giggles.  Thanks in advance for allowing me to share that special letter with you today as we honor her memory:)
