Never Will I Ever

Today’s Blended Blog prompt is really interesting; it’s Never Will I Ever – Things You Will Never Do. There are so many posts in January that focus on things that we’re going to do throughout the new year, but I haven’t seen any that are about things we aren’t going to do. Here are seven things I’m never going to do!

I’m never going to…have another child : We love our triangle family, and although I have moments where I worry that Charlotte will be lonely as an only child, there are just a lot of factors that have contributed to this decision. A pack of dogs, on the other hand, is not out of the question! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’m never going to…wear uncomfortable shoes more than one time : I may still accidentally buy shoes that hurt my feet, but you’d better believe that those suckers will go on Poshmark or Marketplace as soon as I get home from wearing them!

I’m never going to…get in the financial trouble we’ve been in during the last 18 months : We have made some very poor choices, and then we tried to clean things up on our own instead of asking for help. We have a better plan now and have committed to staying out of debt forever now!

I’m never going to…slog through a book I don’t like just to say I finished it : I have such a hard time not finishing a book, but there are too many books that I want to read to waste time on one that I don’t even like!

I’m never going to…weigh as much as I did at my highest point : Okay, technically my highest point was when I had Charlotte, and we’ve already covered future children in this post, but I will never be close to that weight or the weight I’m currently at again! I have two goal numbers in mind – a really aspirational one and a more realistic one that would still make me happy. I know being healthy isn’t all about weight, but I also know that I need to shed some pounds to be healthier and happier with how I look!

I’m never going to…turn down the opportunity for a nap : I mean seriously, naps are glorious, and I should never, ever avoid taking one when the opportunity presents itself!

I’m never going to…hide when I’m having a tough time mentally : This is a tough one for me because I feel like I should be able to pull myself out of a funk without getting anyone else involved, but it’s not always that easy. Plus, I’ve got a really supportive husband, great family members, and helpful friends and co-workers who are always willing to lend a hand.

Is there anything on my list that you’re never going to do? What do your “nevers” look like? I’d love to hear from you!

  1. Oh now see, I have a very hard time napping and try never to do it. Once asleep my body does not want to wake up before it’s been sleeping for hours on end. Naps make me sleepier.

    • I do usually feel a little groggy right after I wake up from a nap, but that’s also a chance I’m willing to take! ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Life is too short for a book!! That is my motto. Especially if it is a book that gets lots of praise and I am bored and like…ummmm what was everyone thinking?? Yeah, ditch that!!! Everyone is always asking me when Zoe is going to get a sibling, I think there is nothing wrong with the family we have now. I too worry that she may be a little lonely without one, but there is a lot that factors in to that decision.

    • Oh, slogging through a highly praised book is the worst! You keep wondering what you’re missing or what’s wrong with everyone else! Someone asked me about giving Charlotte a little brother when she was only 12 weeks old!! I was appalled! Why do other people feel so compelled to weigh in on families and their choices?!? There’s a book I would read lol.
