Less Than a Month In the Blogging World

And I have been nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award! A big thank you to monkiss (http://monkiss.wordpress.com) for nominating me…especially since your blog is so great!

The Versatile Blogger Award

The rules of accepting the nomination:
Thank the person who nominated me
Include a link to his/her blog
Share seven things about myself
Nominate fifteen blogs I follow for this award

1. My spiritual viewpoint is not that of any organized (or unorganized) religion. It is entirely my own, totally complicated, impossible to explain and has a tendency to change from time to time.

2. I always say that I want more hours in a day. Though I think if that was to happen, I would end up with bigger/more jobs to be done rather than getting more accomplished each day.

3. I am an avid reader. I always have at least two books on the go. If I don’t have something to read, I go crazy! I prefer fantasy/supernatural novels. YA novels have more of a selection of “my type” of books, so I spend more time reading those than novels written for adults.

4. Despite number three, I have never read the Twilight trilogy. I never really knew about it until it was crazy popular. For some reason, the huge, seemingly instant, fame deterred me from ever picking up these books.

5. When I decided to start blogging I had 100 ideas I wanted to write about. I can’t remember what they are now.

6. I moved out of my mom’s house with my three sisters when I was fifteen. My oldest sister and I became the “house parents”. She was the major earner, I brought in some money and I played housewife. We felt like the parents to our other two sisters.

7. I was kicked out of high school for a semester and still managed to graduate a year and a half early. When I was pregnant with L, I became very ill. The doctors couldn’t figure out what I had. My life and that of my child were in jeopardy. I was in the hospital for three weeks, which brought my term absences up to seventeen. The maximum absences allowed per term by the school board was fifteen so I was asked to turn in my books.

Okay, so that was the really hard part. Now for the fun part: the nominations!

I nominate (in no particular order):

1. This Mom’s Got Something to Say (http://thismomsgotsomethingtosay.com)

2. Daddy, Round Two (http://daddyroundtwo.wordpress.com/)

3. The Adventures of Jaydon and Daddy (http://jaydonanddaddy.com/)

4. Cultural Quirks (http://culturalquirks.com/)

5. Mother Ruckus (http://motherruckus.wordpress.com/)

6. Doodle Dad (http://doodledad.wordpress.com/)

7. Broken Condoms (http://brokencondoms.wordpress.com/)

8. Autism Momisms (http://autismmomisms.com/)

9. Goodbye, Pert Breasts: The Diary of a Newborn Dad (http://goodbyepertbreasts.com/)

10. From Nonsense to Momsense (http://stacydymalski.wordpress.com/)

11. plan B~each (http://planbeach.wordpress.com/)

12. The Musings of a Jewish Stay-At-Home Father (http://stayathometatte.wordpress.com/)

13. Footsteps of a Stranger (http://rachelgit.wordpress.com/)

14. Mom in the Muddle (http://muddledmom.com/)

15. Okay, I lied…I said no particular order (and that is mostly true) but I saved my favorite for last. This guy’s honesty somehow makes his blog hilarious! sirtilc42 (http://sirtilc42.wordpress.com/)

I love all the blogs I follow! These were just the ones that came to mind. Every one of you deserve this!

No matter how dark the day, the sun is always shining somewhere!

      Honesty and real life don’t generally generate laughs like your posts do…it’s a comment on your writing talent….more flattery! Feel better with the explanation (and extra flattery points)? 🙂
