I have been meaning to write this post for months, but, and I am sure this will surprise no-one, I am a flake. In case you doubt that, let me relay some scattered fragments of thoughts I have found in the notes section of my phone where I usually jot down ideas running through my head that I may want to write about some day. Please read, and be afraid.
I have given pieces of myself to so many
I have shattered my walls
My sister dated the rock stars,the guys in bands. I dated the light guy. Do you know how hard it is to be a groupie for a light guy? “BABY, you are a LIGHTING GOD. When you pushed that button and made the yellow light come on, then the blue one and made green? CHILLBUMPS.”
“She seemed very beautiful, she seemed very nice.” “How can you tell that someone is nice just by how they look?”
If there is one shining moment in my history of parenting it will be this sentence uttered by my 12 year old son this past weekend.
That and when my then 7 year old son asked during the Lion King if the voice of Scar was David Bowie.
ADignorantium - I was nominated for the “Inspiring Blogger Award” by another favorite of mine who called my blog “stream of consciousness”, which is true. In contrast, his blog is not only “stream of consciousness”, it is an “ocean of awesomeness”. He has so many cool things, and funny writing, and serious writing, and good stuff on his blog. Check him out.
The Grimm Report - This blog is so clever and so much fun to read. They feature stories based on fairy tales and folklore. Some of their posts are about the discovery of a mysterious 8th dwarf and news of the owl and pussycat marrying in Vegas.They nominated me for the “Super Sweet Blogger Award”.
Mollytopia – Not an AWARD, exactly, but she digs me…and I dig her…and we’re going to don mermaid tails and swim around together someday.
Speaking of DON, Don of all trades, is a funny dad with lots of hilarious stories, and sometimes, he throws in some heart-wrenching ones, just to keep you off balance. He deserves a mention.
Four eyed gals unite! Miss Four Eyes is so much more than a pair of glasses. She’s hilarious and her observations on life are refreshing.
Mom in the Muddle – This lady is so cool and fun to read and her pictures are even neat!
I am lucky to get to read Lucky Wreck. Her writing can be funny, or poignant, and it is always a pleasure to read.
AND…I cannot leave out Ben, or he will become even MORE bitter, and nobody wants that.
I really and truly am tickled that anybody reads what I write and I know I am going to be doing at least a part 2 as I discover more blogs that I love. I may not be the best at accepting awards, but I really do appreciate them and I thank all of you for indulging my extreme narcissism by reading and following my blog.
