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.
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 message to all my blogging buddies
So it's with great humility that I post a "sorry for not blogging" post of my own. Although it's actually more of a sorry for not stopping by your blog recently post. Because currently I have 210 unread posts in my google reader. That's right 210. And I know how I feel when I write what I consider a witty post and get no comments/feedback. So I didn't want all you, my blogging buddies to think that I had stopped enjoying your blogs. I actually still really enjoy them. And I am slowly working my way through all my unread posts. It just may take me awhile. And I may not be able to make comments on every post until I get all caught up again. And I feel really bad about that which is strange for me because when I started blogging I lurked on people's blogs all the time never leaving comments! But now I feel emotionally connected to so many of you and feel like I'm the long lost friend who hasn't called in awhile!
So-don't give up on me. I will return. I just need to get back into the swing of things.
I also have one more quick thing to mention since I'm all in the apologizing mode. When I first ventured into actually commenting on blogs I was SO impressed when I would get a personal email back from the blog author. And so I tried to do the same for those who would leave comments for me. So I went along for quite some time hitting the reply button on the email notifying me of a new comment. I'm now much chagrinned to admit that it's only been recently that I noticed that half the time the email address I'm replying to is firstname.lastname@example.org So to all of you who thought I was unfriendly or stuck up because I never responded I want to say I'm sorry. I actually sent out bunches and bunches of emails!!!! Sigh.
And now I'm starting to annoy even myself with the pathetic groveling so I'm going to go back to reading the 210 posts in my reader before it becomes 211.
Talk to you soon! (I hope!)
