A Very Tired Not Me Monday



We are here once again...its Monday and its time for our weekly review of what I am sure I absolutely did not do this past week. If you want to see what others haven't done, check out MckMama's blog for all the fun Not Me Monday players.

...................................................

I have not been walking around all week thinking in terms of Not Me. I also don't find it hysterical that my son now tells us "Not Me" when we ask him if its his diaper emitting the noxious fumes.

I did not take pre-cleaning pictures of my kitchen Saturday morning so that I could show everyone how much we cleaned prior to our party. If I did I certainly did not completely forget to take any pictures of the kitchen clean prior to anyone showing up, I also did not forget to take pictures during the party as well.

I am not dreading my upcoming return to work. Nope not me, I am looking forward to going back to my job.

My 2 year old son is not sitting, wide awake in the living room with Daddy right now, at 10:30 at night. If he is, it is definitely not because we let him stay up until almost midnight last night, and then let him take a 3 hour nap today. We know better than that and have not messed up his schedule at all. I am not near tears right now knowing that the littlest guy will be up as well in several hours.

I am not sitting in my office right now printing out copies of my resume for an interview tomorrow morning. Of course I am incredibly prepared, and have had multiple copies of my resume ready for days. My outfit tomorrow is also cleaned, ironed and ready for tomorrow morning. I am cool calm and relaxed....and of course very very ready
.....................

If you can tell, I am a little stressed right now. Normally I would not post about work, but right now its on my mind...a lot. Since being out on medical leave I have had the time to do a lot of thinking about what I am doing career wise. I love what I do, but my current position keeps me away from home a lot, and it has had an impact on my boys, it has had an impact on all of us. So now the search begins...and yes I realize that I am not anonymous here, that at any point anyone I work with could find me (I wouldn't be surprised if they already have, although I have not told anyone I work with about my blog), but I have already told my boss that I am looking. I am not up for travel right now, and I don't want to waste my time or money, or theirs, by traveling all over the place. I also don't like to feel like I am sneaking around or being dishonest - its just not how I roll.

Wish me luck in my job search, and pray that I am not too exhausted for my interview tomorrow morning!!

  1. I'm praying for your career situation to work out. I know how difficult that is with little ones. I didn't work full time when mine were little, but it was still very stressful. You'll be lifted up to Him and it will all be well. Peace to you tonight and know God will have His arms around you all throughout tomorrow.

  10. I think in Not Mes a lot too! HAAAAAAA!! And I just joked with my pastor yesterday that HE needs to do his OWN Not Mes because right in the MIDDLE of his sermon, he called out someone BY NAME and asked them why they were sitting WAY BACK THERE! LOL At least he has a sense of humor!

  16. Hope your interview went well! You'll have to tell us all about it.

    We went through the same situation with me working when the boys were little. I ended up having my own childcare business for awhile. When we moved, I began a part-time job that allowed me to bring my work home. I'd work in the office at night and on weekends, after Bill got home to keep the boys. Several years later, I took a part-time job at our church.

    Yes, money has definitely been tight (sometimes VERY tight) through the years. Last year, I was working TWO part-time jobs because Bill was out of work. But God has always provided for us. And the time I've spent raising our boys? PRICELESS.

    Praying for you and your job situation!
