Oh wow - Oh WOW!

I learned from yesterday's lesson and decided to post early in the day today, when I'm still feeling the promise of a new day. And I was just scrolling down to read your comments from yesterday when I caught the Canadian Blog Awards icon in the sidebar and I realized that I completely forgot to check the results. (And you know it would take something fairly catastrophic to distract me.)

Holy crap!! Holy CRAP!! We came in FIRST in the first round of voting!

(Yes, I realize that I've completely anthropomorphosized blog into its own being. That's been a long time in coming, wouldn't you say?)

First! Wow! I'm speechless. I'm proud, and honoured, and tickled pink. And frankly, the timing is pretty sweet, too. Thank you so much to all of you who voted!

And look at the other four great blogs who made it to the final round of voting in the Best Family Blog category: Her Bad Mother, Debaucherous and Dishevelled, Metro Mama, and Life With Lucy. I'm in some pretty impressive company, wouldn't you say?

You realize that you'll only encourage me, right? Since they probably won't let me quit while I'm ahead and call off the second round of voting, now you can continue to vote for me all next week too. You've got nobody to blame but yourselves!

(Really, thanks!)
