Not Me! Monday

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week. (Subtract the bolded nots if you really want to know what I did all week)

* I did not almost forget to post my Not me! Monday because I have been busy sorting, dating, and labeling the 410 pictures I had printed this weekend. Those 410 pictures are not just of Aiden's 1st year of life. And this is not the first time I have printed pictures in the past year. Of course I have been keeping up with his real-life photo album just as diligently as I update his online photo albums. I did not have to pick and choose and eliminate some pictures I really wanted because I thought more then 410 might be too much for one year of life. After all, that is more then one picture a day.

*The lady at the picture counter did not ask me, when I picked up the 410 pictures, if he was my first and only child. She did not gasp when I told her that he is indeed my third and that I have done more for him in the way of pictures then my other two. Most moms slack off by the third, but not me, I am in overdrive with his pictures.

*I did not realize that I now have over 10,000 pictures on my laptop. I do not need to take the time to back up all those files before I am extremely upset if they get lost in computer land. My husband has not been promising me to do this for a while now but has not gotten around to it. And, yes I do realize that he does not work very hard for our family and my silly computer requests are not at the top of his list.

*Aiden and Alexis did not sleep in till past 9:30 on Saturday, starting our Spring Break off on a good note. Of course Andrew did not come in at 7:30 on the dot to ask me to watch cartoons and then I couldn't fall back asleep.

*I did not feel sad but happy at the same time when Alexis climbed in the car with her Nana on Sunday to head down to San Diego for a few sleepovers with her cousin Desiree. Daddy did not get sad that he wasn't here to say goodbye to her. Alexis did not call him at work and remind him that she will still call him so he doesn't have to worry. Things have not been creepy quiet around here without her. I am not looking forward to getting her back in a few days so life can get back to 'normal.'

*I did not call the nurse advice line for Aiden on Saturday night only to get no clear direction on what I should do for him. His left ear has still been dripping fluid, except now it is milky yellow color and has a nasty odor. I have not dreaded holding him since the smell makes me want to loose my cookies. Dale did not put some of his cologne on him so I could tolerate holding him. I decided to go with my mommy guy and just start the ear drop antibiotics for the next 48 hours and then have him seen if it doesn't get any better. Aiden has not been waking up all night long, crying for hours on end because of the ear I think. He did not finally have a good night sleep last night after only the second dosage of drops. I think my mommy guy was right once again.

Well, I better get back to dating the back of all those pictures before little guy wakes up from his nap.

And Aiden says, "Have a blessed week!!"


  1. i really wish I could get in gear enough to write one of are getting pretty good.

    Good job backing up those photos. I just made my husband empty all of his music off his external hard drive so we could do the same thing.

  2. WOW!!! Tatiana (3rd child) is jealous. I need to organize her pictures. Way to go JOY! Alexis is doing great.
