That hasn’t changed… not one bit. I’ve had a few things going on, and I realize that some love has been shown to me that I have been (not purposely) withholding my response. I wouldn’t be surprised one little bit if there were a few people out there thinking that I’m a real (insert bad name here).
So yeah, I totally feel like a heel for not doing something sooner. Reading through these blog posts really make me smile. I’ve been a bit down on myself the last few days when it comes to my writing and blogging, this has given me a little boost.
So let me do my best to try to give a reply to some of the awards that have been bestowed upon me recently:
The Very Inspiring Blogger Award Awarded to me by The Wild and Wonderful World of Gingerssnaps.
The Liebster Award Graciously Given to me by Mommy Has Issues.
Beautiful Mama Blog Award Bestowed upon me by The Wild and Wonderful World of Gingerssnaps.
Triumph Trophy A new one given to me by Menopausal Mother.
The sad thing is that I’m sure there are others. I was able to find all of the ones posted on my blog’s Facebook wall, but my history on Twitter would only go back so far. So if you’re reading this and thinking “That little (bleep)! I gave her an award and she totally blew me off!” then please let me know and I will quickly whip something up!
Just The Facts Ma’am
Since I’m trying to accept all of these awards at once, I’m going to have to break the rules. Yes, each one had certain things that went along with it-most involved sharing some facts. I think I can share some facts.
1) I will have been unemployed for a year today.
2) I’m trying to get started as a freelance writer and it’s not easy.
3) I started two other private blogs before I started this one. This is the only one I’ve kept up with.
4) My favorite color is purple.
5) I do not eat red meat, unless it is from The Canteen restaurant.
6) I moved to Iowa in 1990 and have only left the state a handful of times since.
7) I can’t think of any more facts.
You see, no award acceptance is complete without the speech. So I’m going to try to name some of my biggest supporters that I couldn’t have gotten this far without their help, cheerleading, and just being great people in general!
