Not Me! Monday

This is my 5th time participating in 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 procrastinate writing my Not Me! Monday post until Monday at 9pm my time. Because I definitely have not been neglecting my blog ever since I started using Twitter . I am not currently following 300+ people and trying to read all their tweets. I did not stalk follow the birth of Dooce’s baby. I certainly wouldn’t have endlessly refreshed her page and shouted encouraging tweets at her during labour. I did not stay up late wondering if I’d be one of the first people to catch the birth announcement. I am not on twitter enough that I would see when she went into labour, when she had given birth, and rush off to her website the minute she announced the name. I was not insanely jealous that she had over 100 comments in the first 2 minutes after posting and over 500 in less than an hour. (Speaking of famous bloggers, I did not get excited when I got an e-mail from MckMama. And if I had I wouldn’t have tweeted about it) Ahem. I certainly am not addicted to the internet.

I do not spend more time looking at job postings and talking about applying for jobs than I do actually applying for them. I did not have a dream about a really well paying job that came with a Porsche. The only catch was that it would be a 3 hour daily commute. I’m glad I don’t actually have to make that decision in real life.

I do not think that all our problems will be solved once we move out of our cramped apartment to our new house. I am not looking forward to the kids having a designated play area instead of taking over our living room and kitchen with their toys. I am not overwhelmed by the choices I need to make concerning paint colours. I am not also overwhelmed by the choices I need to make when I redesign my blog in Wordpress. I am not thinking of articles and blog posts to write but waiting until the new site to publish them.

And now I am not off to clean my house for the sole reason that there is a babysitter coming over tomorrow.


  1. And I am NOT avoiding house work by reading blogs!! :) I love not me Monday!! So, fun!!

  2. I am opposite: I do NOT think that my life would be a thousand times easier if we had an apartment with less space which would mean we would have less STUFF which would mean less maintenance...

  3. I love Not Me Monday! You know what .. we moved to a bigger house and the mess just got spread out! thanks for visiting hope you'll come back soon!


Let me know what you think.
