Call me narcissist if you must but this blog is all about ME. I have another blog about my kids, whom I love and adore writing about. But I was Nicole a long time before I was mom and I don't intend to give up being Nicole overnight.

p.s.
You can read all about my kids at Naptime Optional.
Or you can follow along on our Arizona adventure on my 365 project blog.

A few things

Thing 1: I got my ballot in the mail today. And just so it doesn't come as a shock to you all....the presidential race is not the only thing we're voting on this election day. There are 32 things on my ballot, including a Zoo Proposition and lots of Judges who I have never heard of.

Thing 2: Got on the scales today. (bad idea!) And despite my uncounted weeks of working out (and I mean really hard!!!!) and not eating anything remotely fun I've still only lost 4 lbs. We won't talk about how much the hubby has now lost.

Thing 3: I still haven't called the agent representing the house next door. The sprinklers still come on twice a day for hours at a time....but it's just always at the bottom of my to-do list which is always too long for the hours allotted me each day.

Thing 4: I must be learning to focus my super power. Perhaps it was the tin foil hat. Because, today, out of nowhere, my ipod started working again! And there was much rejoicing.

Thing 5: The deck now has a floor. No stairs or railing yet, but a floor! Maybe it will be done before it snows after all! (although I don't have as much hope for the fence.)

So, to recap:

I have some homework to do about a bunch of judges.
I'm having ice cream tonight because, well, it appears as if NOT having it only results in me being ice cream deprived.
I'm contributing to the drought and will probably have to stop taking showers to make up for it.
Music will once again reign supreme at our home AND I need a cape and a secret identity.
And I can walk out my back door once again.


Now I'm going to go start a new book. Because I made it back to the library AND there is no baby in my bed tonight.

Nice recap!
Hooray for the ipod and the deck!
Also you can tick one thing off your list, I just called Arnie the Realtor and he said the owners are scheduled to go out there tomorrow and turn off the water. So now you can resume taking showers!

Definitely the tin foil hat.

@andria The new book is Mermaid in the Basement. I'm only 13 pages into to. Was on the Reader's Choice table at the Library, which is were I pick up most my books these days, since I don't have much time to just browse at the library anymore.

Tin foil hats rock! Just make sure that it isn't the only thing you wear to the store.
