Some Things Happen That Surprise Me

This is a whirling dervish of a week. Work has been kicking my ass. Lots of stuff going on in the homestead that needs to get done. My daughter is in Hawaii Opera, and tonight I am going, despite my lack of time. My blog addiction is a bit on the back burner. Even with my insomniac habits - waking up at 3 or 4 AM and unable to sleep - I still cannot keep up with the blog world.

Wasn't I surprised and delighted that two bloggers shined some blogging love on me by way of bloggy awards. I humbly accept the lovely awards and I'd like to pass them on to everyone I read, but they come with rules that I will adhere to (I try but sometimes I am not a rule follower).

The first one came a few days ago from The Scholastic Scribe. She is a high school journalism teacher in D.C.

I'd like to pass this on to:

Don't Worry it's Only a Movie
Mile 17
Of thistles and maple leaves
Two Dogs Running
What Kate Did Next

The Scribble Award has rules you can find here.

The Butterfly Award came from Joanie over at Joanie's Random Ramblings. Thank-you Joanie!


I'd like to pass this award on to:

Lost and Found in India
McEwens
My Life Interrupted
What I Should Have Said
Words of Wisdom From a Smart Mouthed Broad

The Coolest Blog Butterfly only came with the directions to pass it on to five other bloggers. Easy enough for me to write myself.

Now, I need to go get ready to get my ass kicked by work again. Then, lucky me, I'm off to the opera.

Awesome! Thanks so much for that one. Wait til you read my post tomorrow. I'm advising you not to drink when you read it. At least, not at the very end.

Mama - you are welcome and you totally rock. I will be especially careful with my coffee tomorrow.

Congrats on your awards! Clearly, you deserve them :-)

Thanks for stopping by my SITS featured blog today! I love meeting new bloggers - especially ones with some "pink" LOL!

Glad to hear you loved growing up with all girls. I often wonder if my daughters will "miss out" on not having a brother, but good to know they will be fine :-)

McEwens said...

Thank you so much for the award!

Good luck to your daughter tonight!!

Congrats on your awards. Now, get some sleep!

Michele said...

Congrats on the bloggy love. Wow, your daughter does Opera? I love opera. The husband won't go, the jerk.

I'm usually up in the middle of the night also. I'd invite you to IM but the time zone thing just wouldn't work.

Michelle said...

Sweet! Congrats on the awards :)

Casey said...

The opera? I couldn't tell if you were using sarcasm when you called yourself lucky.

Congrats on the awards, they're very well-deserved!

Melissa B. said...

And I am certainly honored that you're honored. I've already heard from one of your designees. Don't forget to sign Mr. Linky!

Jack said...

Congrats on your awards and thank you for passing one on to me...it really is an honor. I hope you had fun tonight and enjoyed seeing your daughter on stage. I know how proud you are of her. I totally understand the trying to keep up with everything when it seems like life is kicking your ass. Don't you just wish sometimes that we could all sit down together and just drink a glass of wine...just catch our breathes and do nothing else? Hugs, Lori

Beth said...

Thanks for the award. It's my first blog award ever. And you know, you never forget your first.

We had an amazing time at the concert. Now I'm fueling up with caffeine to make for only 2 1/2 hours of sleep.

Big leap from the California Jam to Opera. Kids do that to us... Your daughter must have a great voice to be able to sing opera. Congrats!

Eudea-Mamia said...

Congratulations on the well-deserved awards!

I'm totally with you on the whole bloggy back burner thing - winter blahs, maybe?

Can you get those Hawaii?

Glad your opera experience was wonderful. Did you almost pee in your pants?

Smart Mouth Broad said...

Gee, thanks for the award! That's awesome! I hope you had fun at the opera!

Hey, my word ver is: ponscom. That's just wrong!
