Not Me Monday -the church version

Enjoy another brutally honest edition to the “Not Me Mondays”. McKmama created this fun category and I enjoy reading some of them.

Our Church has a security system for the childcare building, parents have to wear a bright yellow name badge. It is very legit, if you forget, you have to put your name on the clipboard of shame and they give you a sticker to wear for the day. Shame Shame. I could not find my badge at the last minute so I did NOT put on my husband’s badge and turn it over so that no one could see his name. Nope. not me.

My husband works at a church on weekends, and I haven’t sat in a service with him for years. His department has finally gotten to a point where he can sit with me in one service. YESTERDAY was the big day to sit beside my husband, he can put his arm around me. I was late getting into the service but I found 8 of our friends in a row with ONE seat left on the aisle. I did NOT ask all my friends to scootch to the center so that we could “create” a seat for my husband when he got there. Nope, I would not be THAT rude to our friends.

AND, when my husband sat down…

He did NOT sit down for the sermon and proceed to read his Russian History novel for school and I did NOT approve of it (In his defense, he already heard that sermons 3 times in the past 12 hours).

On our way to church, an airplane was circling the city with a Geico banner. We see it all the time. I’m not sure what percentage of Geico’s customers come from a airplane banner. Anyways, Lindy asked me what Geico meant and I proceeded to explain Geico to her which basically came out as a commercial. A few hours later, after church I heard her say “Geico can save you money!”

I picked up Lindy at her Sunday School class and the teacher usually gives me a report of what Lindy has done in the class. Today, she did NOT tell me that my daughter “put on a show” that included a dead princess dancing (hmmm…where does she get this stuff?!)
