I doubt any of you reading this blog think I do it all, but just in case let me share with you what I don’t do.

I don’t:

  • Volunteer for everything under the sun (even though I’m a pastor’s wife)
  • Exercise regularly (although I’m really trying to get back there)
  • Formally do preschool (just learning through play right now)
  • Grocery shop with my kiddo in tow (I almost always go by myself after Dan gets home from work)
  • Fold all the laundry before it gets wrinkly (twice this week I’ve had to throw things back into the dryer to get out wrinkles)
  • Wrap presents (mainly because Dan is so much better at this than I am)
  • Follow all of my own advice (sometimes I stay up too late, am unkind and forget my husband and I are on the same team.)
What don’t you do?

  1. I totally need to write one of these…mainly for myself! I always remind myself that anytime I say yes to something, I need to say no to something else. Sadly, I often choose the wrong side of that. A work in progress I guess. :-)

    • “I always remind myself that anytime I say yes to something, I need to say no to something else.” Yes, very good point.

  2. I don’t always think before I speak. And I don’t always take care of myself like I should. Those are the more negative ones.

    On the positive side, though, I don’t accept every invitation, which is something that’s taken me a long time to get to. Like Johanna said – you have to say ‘no’ to something when you’re saying ‘yes’ to others, and too much time away from my family is usually a ‘no’.

    And just for the record – folding clothes before they get wrinkly is really not as awesome as it sounds…a wet washcloth in the dryer will take care of it, no ironing needed! :D

  3. I don’t always include my kid in every activity of the day like cooking or cleaning. I don’t always have an agenda and often laze about on the couch with him. I also don’t always shop with my toddler although he’s getting much better about that.
