Blog Love

23 Jun

A HUGE thanks to Life’s Little Slices for giving me the Blog Lovin’ Award!  Thank you so much!  I really don’t think I deserve it, but will of course accept it.  Thank you so much!  This comes as a huge surprise to me.  I wasn’t sure people were even reading this silly thing.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Of course these things have requirements.  It’s not like you’re given a gift and you don’t have to give anything in return.  It’s not Christmas people, it’s an award.

So without further adieu:

1.  Thank the person who nominated you

Thanks to Life’s Little Slices!!!!!

2.  Share seven random facts about yourself

  • I pee in the shower.  On a recent trip I took with my dad and brother I peed in every shower in every hotel room we had.
  • I wish I could bring myself to leave the toilet seat up.  I honestly think it would be the funniest thing in the world if Thing 1 fell in because she didn’t look where she was sitting.
  • I love science fiction / fantasy novels.
  • My dad is one of my heroes.
  • I want to be a teacher when I finally grow up.
  • I often pretend not to hear people.  Life is easier this way.
  • I make lunches for Thing 1, Thing 2, and The Boss before they head out to school / work.

3.  Pass the award on to several bloggers you know and maybe even respect (see, I changed this one because I’m rugged and manly and numbers don’t really apply to me).

close enough to several if I do say so myself.
4.  Congratulate those to whom you are giving the award.  See, I used whom, that makes me smart.  The rest of my posts prove that I’m dumb as a post.

    -lol- I laughed so hard about the shower deal! Crazy just crazy! But funny. That’s all that matters. You totally have to explain to me who is This 2’s teacher. I was so lost on that one for a while. I googled “Thing 2’s Teacher”! ROFL!

    You are a great blogger. Keep up the good work. We are watching!

      Thanks!!! I can’t believe you googled Thing 2’s Teacher! I have some stories about them, but am waiting until the fall to start on them.

    Eric:
    I am so honored to have been mentioned here. Yesterday was a meltdown day where I was considering putting down my pen and closing up my laptop forever. Thanks for being one of those signs from the universe saying, “Don’t do it.”

    Um, also, the next time I’m at your house (wherever that may be), please remind me not to take a shower. 😉

      So sorry you had a bummer day yesterday. Please don’t stop blogging. I love reading your blog and look forward to it showing up in my (work) inbox each time you post. Often, your blog brightens my otherwise dull day(s).

      No problem. I never said where I peed in the shower. Maybe it’s only in hotel rooms. Or maybe only when I stay with people (eeewww even that grosses me out).

    Hey, thanks for the shout. I appreciate it.

    As guys, the world is our urinal, and the shower is just a natural extension of that. I’m with ya.

    Thanks again.

    Thanks for the shout. I’m flattered to be in such good company.
    Sorry it took me a little time to get here, but I’ve been behind on reading other blogs and comments.
