Over the years, I've come across quite a few posts where other mom bloggers make a list of things they don't do. I always appreciate the lists, because it provides perspective that no one can "do it all," and I thought I'd post my own "don't do" list here, along with links to the posts that inspired me.
Here's my list of things I don't do:
I don't sew.
I don't iron.
I don't write as many letters as I used to.
I don't buy organic.
I don't do many of the crafts/projects I bookmark/pin/tear out of magazines.
I don't scrapbook.
I don't turn off the computer during the day.
I don't serve healthy snacks very often.
I don't sort laundry.
I don't do Twitter.
I don't cook gourmet meals.
I don't wear makeup or style my hair.
And I'm sure there are many more things I don't do, but that's a pretty comprehensive list.
If you want to peruse others' don't-do lists, here are some links:
Money Saving Mom
The Homespun Heart
I also found a fascinating (and lengthy!) list written by Amy Dacyczyn, author of The Complete Tightwad Gazette. (Which reminds me--I never followed up on posting things I'd tried from that book. Oops!) Amy's list is on page 654 if you have the book and want to check it out.
Are these lists interesting to you? Which of the items from my list do you not do, either? (Please tell me you don't do ALL those things. Ha!)
