I have one thing to say today – TGIF – oh, wait – two things – TGIF and a MEGA BIG THANK YOU!  The TGIF is pretty self-explanatory – a hellish week, which by the way, will continue on into next week.  If you find yourself sitting on the edge of your seat waiting for there to be some sort of conclusion to the maybes, kind ofs, and don’t knows –  I hate to disappoint.  No worries, this project will come to an end – these ‘things’ always do….

In the meantime, I have a few items I would like to share.  Two awards in which I hold the highest regard.  As one can see below, they share a common theme – INSPIRATION.

Very Inspiring Blogger Award 2013

Rules are short and sweet:

7 more highly and exciting things about me (sort of ) that you already do not know about (sort of):

  1. In less than one week, my baby (the first one) graduates high school.
  2. Today was the last day I will ever take my baby (the first one) to high school ever, ever, ever again.
  3. Peyton – my second baby, has three more years of high school – which means I have three more years of dealing with nutty parent drivers.
  4. I cried this morning – like a baby – when I dropped the babies off at school.
  5. I made a kickass lunch for the boys – homemade meatloaf on oatmeal bread (not homemade).  Old Style pretzels and oatmeal granola bar.
  6. I have upheld my mother’s tradition of making kickass lunches.  What can I say – I am kickass!
  7. Tomorrow I take my first baby to his first day of work – he is working as a film editor for an amusement park – Six Flags Great America!  Who knew they have such a thing?  Anyway, the young man is on his way to Hollywood (there is still college – which means more future posts about my baby and me crying my eyes and heart out…..:)

As you can see, I am exercising my creative free (rebellious) spirit and breaking a few of the award nominating rules.  If I keep giving you more ‘sort of information’ about me, you will most certainly die of boredom.  Secondly, in regards to nominees – this is such a difficult task, basically because I want to nominate everyone.  Each and every blog I read inspires me.  The list above is just a sampling.

Some of the above blogs are new to my eyes and some have been hanging out in my reader for the past few months.  Each one is special to me and I enjoy having the opportunity to recognize them and what they bring to the WP community – which is inspiration and incredible talent.

Here comes the MBTY:

To Rachie, Kira and Laurien – I would like to say Mega Big Thank You so very much for this lovely honor –

To Rachie, Kira, Laurien and my 21 incredibly awe-inspiring nominees – Mega Big Thank You for all that you do


To the entire WordPress community – Mega Big Thank You for every moment in which you create inspiration and click the publish icon!

Till the next time………

Happy Writing, Happy Reading and Happy Day!

    You’re too fun. What will you do now, with all this empty nest syndrome ahead? Or, are they all going to stick around and take care of biz while you post your wickedly amusing posts? Swinburne and so many of those other Romantic era writers and poets hired people to take care of the more mundane business of their lives…you’ve got a pre-fab care force. Good for you !

    It must be so weird to have your child graduating, going off into the “real world”. I agonize when I realize that my kiddo will be doing that in 6 years. Where did the time go? 2/3 of his time at home with us … gone. 😦
