Who Would Turn Down an Award?

Well, duh! Who doesn't like an award?

There are the Academy Awards for great movies, Gold Medals for athletic achievement, Bonuses for work well done. What's wrong with a blog award?

A blog award is given to people like a pat on the back. An affirmation that someone enjoys your writing, your style, your humor. Words of encouragement. Why shake a finger at that?

I've been home for 10 years raising our 3 children. Out of the workforce, often out of social scene. Just me and the four walls, and the kids. Maybe it's pathetic to say I won't be getting any mother of the year awards for most poopy diapers changed in a day or most hours using earplugs.

So a pat on the back or knowing I put a smile on someone's face today, makes me feel good, hells yeah, makes me feel great.

Those little gadgets are so dang cute too. I love cute things.

Most of all, I am happy to give that award back! Give it to people that inspire, entertain, and make me laugh! It's a reciprocal relationship between bloggers. Plus, maybe you'll find out about a blog you didn't know about before, new friends.

Dammit they just makes the world a happier place! ;)

...and without further ado....

Tiffany, The Neurotic Mom, Jaime, Princess, and MamaofRomance were so sweet to pass on this rockin' award to me! Check them out, they're fab too!

Um....my five cats, and my husband whom allows me to sit onthe computer for 14 hours a day and brings me coke in a bottle to help fuel my energy.
