an award for me!!

It is Tuesday and I am home sick. I've had the beginnings of the cold for several days and now it is in full bloom. I woke up in the middle of the night not being able to breathe, with my throat full of gunk and a throbbing head. Ow.

I took some medicine and hoped morning would bring me a brighter day. It did not.

So here I sit in my pajamas, reading all your blogs and commenting and watching it snow outside. The weather here is certainly unpredictable, but I do love snow.

I have loved all the comments I have received over the past couple of days, and am so impressed by those of you who admitted that you used to be angry, but have worked your way out of it. It takes work to let it go and move on.

On another note, I was given an award by E at Waiting for Baby. It's the beautiful blogger award.

Thanks so much, E! It's nice to be recognized for my small little corner of the world.

Okay, so there are rules, but I'm not big on rules, so I am throwing caution to the wind and ignoring most of them and just posting 7 random things about myself for your entertainment.

  1. I was born in Iowa, moved to Alaska, then to Florida and then to North Carolina. Yes, I've lived all around the country.
  2. I'm addicted to the big boxes of Nerds, and will eat them until my tongue goes fuzzy.
  3. I got kicked out of ballet class when I was five, mostly for refusing to dance and standing in the corner picking my nose. Totally regret that, by the way.
  4. I can't stand to watch those ASPCA commercials on tv. I start crying every time. I would give all my money if I could actually make it through the whole thing.
  5. I love figure skating and have met both Dorothy Hamill and Michelle Kwan.
  6. I hate being cold, and usually have a sweater with me at all times.
  7. If I could afford to live in NYC in an apartment that was bigger than a breadbox and overlooked the park I would totally move there and soak it up. My husband and I visited there this summer and fell in love with the town. I would not, however, want to have to live there and make do with 500 square feet of space.
  8. Yes, I watch the Bachelor.
Okay, there are my seven, er, eight things. Hope you enjoyed learning a little about me and reading my cold medicine induced ramblings.

Iowa to Alaska...we think about doing an Illinois to Alaska every once an a while :).

I missed Michele Kwan at the Olympics this year.

If anyone is deserving of an award, it's you.
I'd love to live in NYC, too.
Hope you feel better soon!

I cannot watch the ASPCA commercials either. When I hear the first notes of music I scurry to find the remote.

I love #3! You're such a rebel.

So, what has been your favorite place that you have lived?

E said...

You deserve the award!

Can't stand to watch those ASPCA commercials either...I do give in and send money to our local SPCA.

It was nice reading 8 random things about you!
