Not Me Monday and The Wrester

Let's get ready to rummmbbllle....... (as you hear the standard music that comes on after that statement)
I thought that would be a cute touch to my Not Me Monday post..... especially since Joe and I saw "The Wrestler" last night. Which, by the way, is a GREAT movie.... Mickey Rourke really did an excellent job in his portrayal of a washed up professional wrestler, given a second chance at his career and relationship with his estranged daughter!! Marissa Tomei did a great job in her portrayal of a "veteran" (meaning one of the older ones in the bar) stripper; and of course Joe really liked her and thought she did "all the right moves" (for those who have seen it, you know what I mean).

Anyway, onto my therapy session........

I did not eat chic-fil-a for lunch 4 out of 5 work days last week.... I especially did not do that because we are having a "biggest loser contest at work and I am definitely trying to eat right.

I did not get extra mad when I lost 3 races to Ethan on the "Mario Kart" racing game. I especially did not do that because I always tell the kids how they should not be a sore loser.....

I have not memorized just about every word to Kindergarten Cop because it has been playing in my truck for the past 10 days....over and over and over....and over again!!

I did not get choked up after the coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers got choked up giving his speech after their win last night.

I did not get disgusted and gaggy when watching Mickey Rourke puke in the movie. (for those who know me well, know that I "did not" have my eyes clinched shut and my hands over my ears)

I did not get lured into Old Navy AND Bath & Body Works because they were having Clearance sales....and then I did not spend more money than I should have just because I felt like I was getting a "deal".

I did not almost burst into tears when the doctor told us that after one week on the chemo pill, Joe's blood work is back to normal...... awww, what the heck-- I will admit to it on this one!! That's right peeps, Joe is on the road-to-recovery; although he will have to remain on that pill for a long time!!

I will end my session on that note.... because honestly, nothing beats that news!!

Funny....I do the cover ears and clinch my eyes shut too.
And I always buy too much when I feel like I'm getting a good deal when really I didn't need any of it to begin with.

Happy Not Me!
Glad to meet you!
