Busy week... and lj Idol stuff

This past week, we went to spend some time with my husband's family. Overall, it was an excellent vacation. We got in a lot of visiting, with many different people. I remembered to take decent pictures that were fairly representative of the occasion, the kids had great fun, and Alex even managed to poop in the potty. This makes me a happy mommy.

She still has the tendency to try to poop in her diaper/panties, but I think it's more out of habit. She freaks out about not wanting to poop in the potty, but then when we pick her up and drag her over to it, she's had a tiny bit of success, which has encouraged her to try again. Sometimes. So ya know... it's progress. I think we're finally getting somewhere. Maybe she'll actually be pooping in the potty before she goes to school!

In other news, I'm a little bit sad that joeymichaels, in a game-changing moment, has used the power of "sacrifice" to take himself out of the game (therealljidol), and bring back another player. While I'm thrilled that gratefuladdict will be returning to the game, having had to drop out a few weeks ago due to Real Life commitments, I've been having a hell of a good time getting to preview entries, strategizing, plotting, and in general, living vicariously. Clearly what this means is that I'll have to write a few more of my own entries for the prompts, and play the Home Game. :P

I am also secretly hoping that the power of "sacrifice" will come up again later in the game, and he will be brought back in. In addition, I want Kitty Michaels (kittymichaels to also be brought into the game, and my ultimate dream would be to watch Kitty and Joey battle it out for the win. This would be all kinds of awesome.

Incidentally, if I happen to write a fictional entry (joeymichaels has inspired me to try fiction at least at some point), I will make sure to note that it is fiction, and not that I'm having some kind of major meltdowny crisis involving death, suicide, jail, hospitalization, etc. Not that I necessarily plan on writing about those kinds of things, but just that if I did, and suddenly the police/ambulance showed up on my door because a handful of you who actually know who I am, well that would suck :P

If you ever check out my first month or two of entries here at LJ, you'll find that I wrote a fictional account of Sad Clown Rep's US tour. I thought it was so over-the-top as to be impossible to mistake for fiction, but several people did, so I had to start disclaiming it - which took some of the fun out. :D

Hah! There are a few people who's journals I have gone back to the beginning to read, but I don't think I've made it that far back to yours!

This will have to be done :P

It was pretty impressive, that's for sure.

I'm not sure if this is significant or not, but it seems like all of the other people who offered sacrifice were women. Has he been the only man to sacrifice himself?

My impression is that the bulk of LJI competitors are women, so it would make sense that the majority of people sacrificing themselves were women.
