Not Me! Monday (Frozen Brain)

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

I did not have a problem this past week accepting the fact that the weather had dropped to 20 below zero. This did not manifest itself by my stubbornness and refusal to wear gloves resulting in cracked skin on my knuckles. I would never be that deliberately stupid - I do not contribute non-deliberate stupidity to a frozen brain on top of the already pregnant brain.

This frozen, pregnant brain did not also cause me to forget to re-register Ate for an extended hour of school on Thursdays for the second half of the school year. I was not made aware of this only after I left Ate at school with a lunch on Thursday until 1:00, even though he was not on the list of registered kids.

When I went to fill out the registration form in the office on Friday, I was not invited by the head of the department to help myself to some hot water and hot chocolate mix. And if I was, I certainly did not take her up on this offer to remedy my frozen brain, knowing full well I was about to walk out into a swarm of other mother's who would undoubtedly want to know where I got the fresh hot chocolate from. When I was asked repeatedly by the other parents where I got the unidentifiable hot chocolate from, I would never have considered telling them that they all need to get the new "Cho CAR olate hot chocolate maker" that hooks up to the car outlet and brews as you go. (That is not - not such a great idea - I think it already exists)

I did not take my parent's repeated announcements to third party people - including my in-laws, that they miss the kids, so seriously that I used it to my advantage and sent Hun with the kids Sunday to their brand spankin' new house for a "visit". I did not use this to my advantage by totally nesting and organizing and scrubbing all morning. This did not tire me out so completely that I took a shower and a nap, that I did not wake up from until close to 5:30 p.m.

I did not just send Hun out to get some coffee ice cream because all my cravings have come from subliminal messages lately, and my friend had been talking about coffee ice cream on face book all week. Even though it was a tropical almost 30 degrees out today, I did not subject myself to a form of frozen brain - AKA "brain Freeze" yet again due to the ice cream suck fest I certainly did not enjoy immensely.

What did you not get done this week due to "frozen brain"?

I love the idea of the cho-car-late hot chocolate maker. I am a hot chocolate fanatic. I drink it in the mornings instead of coffee. I prefer the french vanilla from Nestle but the grocery stores rarely carry it so I end up with Swiss Miss version.
If you would like the recipe for the Reese's peanut butter balls, let me know and I can email it to you or comment it to you....they are totally yummy. They are a bit difficult to make but totally worth the effort.

I have the very same problem with my cracking knuckles! It's just that it's such a hassle to get the gloves out, put them on, take them off, well you do it too! ;)
