Picture 183Today is it.  Today is the last day before I become a SAHM (Stay At Home Mom)  Me, who would of thunk it?

This might sound cold and I should probably feel guilty about this, but I don’t want to be a SAHM! I want to work, contribute & bring home a paycheck.  I love-love-love-love our twins (Ella’s in 1st grade, so she is not with us all day) but I truly believe that they become better people because they are exposed to so many things that I can not offer them.  I am so worried that they will get sick of me and I will be so tired of being “Mom” that I won’t be a good Mom to Ella, a great wife to Greg & great Mom that I know I am, to them.  *sigh*

But here is what will happen:

I will be an awesome SAHM.  I won’t “work” while they sit in front of the TV or I just let them play around.  If I am going to be at home, they are going to get sick of me interacting and teaching them how to be better people, better artists, better athletes, better 2-yr olds…in the most loving way of course.

So, you won’t hear from me on Twitter, FaceBook, your blog etc as much during the day…but I will still be here.  I will be blogging still, but it might be about my favorite toy, kid event or new shaving product, where I will most likely write out a social media marketing plan for them.  The faucet will never be turned off!

Yes, I am still looking for that full time gig & eagerly wanting to start at the drop of a hat…but my kiddos are now first & I am thrilled to be able to spend this time with them & teach them what I know (twin-twitter accounts?) so stick with me, don’t forget me & I will see you soon.

xoxo

For those that know me either 1:1 in real life or in Twitter, LinkedIn or through a community, I think it is fairly obvious that at this very moment in time…I am going nuts.  I have never been unemployed this long.  The last time was between a move from Colorado to Boise and I had a job 1/2 way lined up before I move then.

So here is my contribution to the life of Top 10 Lists:

TEN REASONS WHY UNEMPLOYMENT SUCKS!

  1. The unemployment office smells of B.O & last weeks lunch
  2. I don’t HAVE to take a shower in the morning (see reason #1of result) 
  3. I could “research” all day long & know what EVERYONE on Twitter is doing instead of finding a job
  4. The vacuume cleaner stares at me all day
  5. I think I am expected to have dinner on the table at 6pm…whaaaaa?
  6. My neighbor thinks I am one of them now (referring to a very hard job-but not mine: SAHM)
  7. I have an urge to scrapbook. Noooooooooooooooo!!!
  8. Those “work from home” and make a gazillion dollar ads are actually tempting
  9. So what is wrong w/curling up with a trilogy of Back to the Future in the middle of the day?
  10. Even though I bragged about itm I REALLy don’t want to wait tables

Any ones you could ad?
