Not Me! Monday

This is my third time participating in Not Me! Monday! I didn't know that this meme was on holiday during memorial day so I still wrote a Not Me! Post for last 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 first birthday party for my youngest this week. It was not planned two days in advance because I am way more organized than that. I am not sad that she is growing up and I certainly am not thinking about getting pregnant so I can experience the baby stage again. I have not been too busy to post pictures of her party yet. (Except for the one below) Our outfits were not both from Walmart, and my top certainly didn't come from the juniors section.

I have not been eagerly waiting for summer to hurry and get here so I can go outside more with my girls. And now that it is finally here, I am not complaining that it is too hot. I am not already regretting not enjoying my time home with the girls more, now that I know I will have to start working at some point.

I have not been procrastinating about getting a job for over six weeks since I finished school. I do not regret getting a Bachelor of Arts degree and am not wishing I had some marketable skills and job experience. I am not reluctant to job search because I am not having any guilt about leaving my babies (ok toddlers) for 40 hours a week. I am not nervous about what it will be like to work a full 9-5 for the first time in my life. I do not secretly think that a job might be easier than being home all day. My husband did not promise to let me spend my first pay check on a new wardrobe in order to motivate me to look for a job. But only after we move, so I have closet space to put the clothes in.

I am not completely sick of my home and its lack of space. I would never need more than one drawer in the kitchen. I do not care that my youngest is sleeping in our storage room. I have not completely given up on trying to make it look nice while I wait for our new house to be finished. I am not completely blessed to be able to move into a beautiful new house.

And last of all, I did not stay up way too late just to write this post.

I am also not running my first giveaway. You should NOT click here unless you want to win some Beech Nut Toddler Food


  1. Too funny! I too am not feeling the walls closing in on us in our small apartment. We've decided to make it work though and save the money we could be using to move, and use it in other areas. I'm not worried at all about this decision! Nope, not me!


  2. Tell me about it! I feel like I always put EVERYTHING off till last minute. I never was like that until I became a mom. Need to work on that one! Oh yea... and I'm totally NOT sick of my home too!! ;) We are constantly running out of room!!

  3. I feel like we don't have enough space sometimes too! And I know that I'm going to be missing the baby stage the moment I don't have a tiny baby anymore ;)

    I've left you an award on my blog :)

  4. 2 days? You crazy mama! I would have really been stressing out! I am usually one to plan way in advance. My daughters 3rd birthday party, I was seriously lagging. I think I was spending too much time getting my blog up!


Let me know what you think.
