An Unexpected Twist

So I won a blogging award. Yah, me. If you'll look back on my history of posts, you'll see why I find this so hilarious. But if you know the person who gave it to me and all of her sweetness, you'll understand why she passed it on to me. Here it is:

And now I have to follow the rules. (Sort of feeling like I'm in that junior high free underwear chain letter experience all over again.)

1. Thank who gave you the award and link to them
2. State what is is you look for in a blog
3. Give the award to 7 people whose blogs pertain most to you (be sure to let them know they won!)

Here goes:
1. Thank you Myrna! Please go read her blog. She's much more productive than I am.

2. Hmm.. what I look for in a blog? I look for a decent layout, not too much crap cluttering up my line of site, and juicy literary and visual tid bits to suck on. (This could be recipes or book reviews or tips on how to keep a 7 year old away from the light socket with the screwdriver.)

3. SEVEN? seven blogs? really? uh... ok. Reading and writing blogs, for me, is something I do when I have NOTHING else left on earth to do for the day (or a huge list of things I'm trying to ignore and I've done everything else I wanted to before them). It's fun, it's just not very high on my list of favorite fun things to do on earth. I do have a few blogs that I visit regularly, however. Here they are.. Not sure if I'll hit 7, but we'll try!

The DeMaria Quads - these are my adorable great nephews and now NEICES! (we just got another one! Congrats!) I read their blog because I never get to see them and because I am completely facinated and amazed at how my niece Amber and her sweet husband cope with 5 children under the age of two at their home. It makes my life seem like a piece of cake!

Heather in Kazakhstan - My friend's amazing adventures halfway around the world without red vines.

What did you said? my sister-in-law Wendy's site. Always a good laugh there right when I need it.

Eliza - because I always learn new words from her. And she's a kick butt runner!

The Hammonds - because Janeen is amazing and I miss her.

And Kate - whom I also miss, a lot.

Ok.. I know that's not seven, but I'm exhausted, my brain is feeling like cheese (ugh.. forgot to put the cheese sticks in the lunch for tomorrow!) and I desperately need sleep!

G'nite :)

Hey! I won an award for using abstruse words and running a marathon. :) I liked your beach post. You are a wonderful mother. I'm working on posting my marathon story, but I don't have any pics. They're on my mom's and sister's cameras, so stay tuned.

You're welcome, Jenny! Your posts are fun to read when you do write them, and I meant it when I said I liked your manuscript. Happy revising! :o)

Elizabeth! I miss you too, I hope you know that :) And I really cant ignore the fact that you have the best vocabulary of anyone I know! No offense to anyone else who's a word lover. I'm sure Elizabeth knows the term for being a word lover!
