Monday – a non-post

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Misc. life

1) Laundry

2) Figure out this computer thing

3) Work

4) Mess in front hallway

5) Mess in office area

6) Mess in living room (decorate mantel?)

7) Mess in dining room

7) Dinner??

Honey, if you love me you’ll bring me sushi.

p.s. the boots rocked the house (okay, rocked MY house) on Saturday night. The pointy shoes stayed home. Sorry to disappoint ye voting masses! The party was fun, not as fun as the Year of the Crossdressing Singers, but fun nonetheless.

A non-comment;

1) put mess away so I can put Christmess out and around.

2) dog/cat conflict needs resolution

3) child needs retrieval from daycare soon, and all I did was get my haircut, eat lunch with husband and gab with a friend today.

4) dinner?!

5) check blogs of favourite friends.

6) take a moment to say YAY BOOTS!

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark. We have two daughters: Emma (19) and Sarah (17). I am the managing editor of our community newspaper, the Kitchissippi Times. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
