Feeling the Love!!

OK, imagine my surprise and thrill when I get back online when I discovered that I won THREE awards while I was gone!!!!!! I think the last award I won was back in high school or something!!!

So, from now on, I would like only Perrier, green peanut butter M&M's, and Starbucks lattes delivered to my inbox as an internet tax every time you read my blog. I understand, of course, that having such a lauded blog comes immense responsibility, and I will elevate my diction accordingly.

*KAK!* Ahem, sorry, when my chiro adjusted my neck today, along with mildly reinjuring me he seems to have also dislodged a big chunk of ego. Whoops! Glad I worked THAT out.

Anyway, thanks to:

Which Box? for this baby

which I'm going to pass on to Kristi at Autobiography of A Material Girl and Stimey at Stimeyland.

and Creative Kerfuffle AND Kelsey over at Midwest Mom for this glittery thing:
which I am in turn passing on to Swistle, Sue at My Party of 6, and Erin at MO Mommy.

I Heart and Glitter you all, too!!!! You know, when I started this blog, I had no idea I'd actually Meet People and make Friends, but I have!!!!! I love hearing about all your lives, and I'm all giggly and butterfly-y inside that you like me, too! Thanks! :)

DH left this morning for travel, and won't be back until Thursday night late sometime. I will do my best not to whine about this, since I know many of you have spouses that are away a lot, whereas he is rarely gone. However, know that inside I am whining like a missed-my-nap two year-old that's been in a Target shopping cart in a winter coat for an hour and wants a candy bar. Seriously. Also, the dogs are going to keep me up half the night for the next two days woofing at every little noise, thinking it's him coming home. They've started already, actually. It's been incredibly windy today, so there are lots and lots of noises for them to bark at, too. Sigh. I, myself, NEVER get freaked out at being alone. Nope, not me. And, I especially do NOT leave any extra lights on, anywhere in the house. Nope.

Patrick is fine. I took him to the doctor this morning, who said that he was good to go to school, since anyone who was going to be infected by him would have been last week when he was coming down with it, and that he could in fact go immediately after the appointment. Well, guess who was duly deposited at the school, and can I get an AMEN for that?!?! That boy was driving me Bonkers. He's just sick enough to expect special treatment, but well enough to be hyper and very demanding. That's a BIG negative in the staying home department, thank you very much.

This is getting long, so I'll update on the school situations tomorrow rather than today. I know you're all waiting with baited breath. (Wait, did I spell that right? Is it 'baited' or 'bated'? Argh.)

Glad the boy is on the mend!

And it's bated. :)

It's so amazing that people all over the world read other peoples blogs and get so involved in their lives to a point where we chat every night. I'm glad you got a award :) It's nice to be recognized for something, anything, sometimes :D LOL

Quote from your Blog Post: "whining like a missed-my-nap two year-old that's been in a Target shopping cart in a winter coat for an hour and wants a candy bar. Seriously." ...How did you totally see me doing this the other day? hahaha, cute!

When D is out of town, I leave on so many lights it's ridiculous. Love the blog badges!

It's Homer that gets freaked out when I go away. I'm not that easily spooked.

Congrats on the awards!

Woot for bloggy bling! :)

I hate "sick" days or "early release" days or "snow" days. They're all the same~a way to make me NUTTY!

I don't care if it's baited or bated, as long as it's not bad breath.
Seriously, tictacs, people. they're like 39 cents.

Kristi said...

Congrats on the bloggy awards.

And YAY ME!! Thanks for passing to me! Blogs are fun!

P.S. Peanut Butter M&Ms are my absolute favorite! I'll pick out all of the green ones for you if you let me have the rest!
