My little Princess got up just before her alarm clock today. My life is always easier when she does that. She is always just a little happier and a little more content if I haven't had to wake her from a deep sleep.
The night before last someone from our tenants association on this street, knocked on my door. She was running for chair and wanted my vote. I spoke to her about the whole thing and who was running for the other positions and it was suggested that maybe I should run for Treasurer as I used to do accounting for a living and it was definitely within my capability. As well, I have wanted to be a part of the community as I really like it here and this was a way for me to do that. So I ran. The vote was tonight and I lost to a much loved, hard working, 20 year veteran of the community. Once I heard she was running (while I was sitting there waiting for the vote) I knew I lost. I was lead to believe that no one else was running. I really wasn't that dissappointed as it sounded like a very complicated job with a lot of responsibilities, taking full advantage of all my accounting history. I think it may have been more than I was really willing to bit off anyway.
How cute is this? I am on the computer and my little princess comes running in, "Mommy! Poppy wants to speak to you!" confused as I hadn't heard the phone, I asked, "Where?" and she answers, "On the phone." and she hands me the phone. I pick it up and there is a dial tone. Apparently she wanted to speak to her grandfather! How cute is that!! I got her to come over while I called him, but he wasn't home. So she left him a message.
