Ya, I know…. I’ve still been slacking. Barely squeaking out a post a week these days…..
I’m not going to promise to post more frequently because every time I say I’m going to do that, I post even less!
Lots has been going on but really nothing at all at the same exact time. Does that even make sense?!? In my twisted little corner of the earth it COMPLETELY does.
And what does a blogging slacker get rewarded with?!?
What’s that you say????
Yup…. A blogging award!
In the midst of my slacker-dom in the blogging world, I somehow managed to get an award thrown my way from one of my dearest blogging friends and most favorite-est people ever, the fantastically-fabulous and incredibly-hilarious Donna at The Redneck Princess. This lady is the perfect addition to your daily reading material as she is funny as all get out, she’s as REAL as they come and she’s one of my biggest supporters. AND to boot she’s pretty kick-ass at all this technology stuff and currently flaunting ( I mean that in the nicest way possible! xoxo) it well at her NEW SELF-HOSTED home for The Redneck Princess. It looks phenomenal so check it out!!!! OODLES of thanks my friend! You are one “Versatile Blogger” and am happy to be lumped in that category along side ya.
Sooooooo…. on with the deeds I must do.
Here’s the dealio…
- Thank and link to the person who nominates you
- Share seven random facts about you
- Pass this award to five new blogging friends
- Contact and congratulate the awarded bloggers
1… I am an extreme lover of peanut butter & Nutella. On bread, bananas, pretzels or by the spoonful. Alone or a little of both. Pretty sure I could eat them both every day if I let myself!
2… I think perhaps I may be a bit obsessive compulsive in some regards. Not in ways involving specific rituals or routines per say. More along the lines of once I get a notion in my head (good or bad) I can’t shake it… honestly I can’t control it. Sometimes it can be a good thing yet other times it’s not so much. I think it may tie in to the worrier in me. I dunno, but it’s led me to be known as “the persister” by some.
3… I ask questions. A lot of questions. If you tell me you’re cooking dinner, know that I am going to ask WHAT you’re making. I’ll ask HOW it’s coming along, only to be followed by my asking how it turned out and if it was yummy. Numbers 2 & 3 correlate well or work against each other depending on the situation.
4… I love to paint my nails. Both fingers & toes. However, I hate taking nail polish off so don’t be surprised if you see me with chipped polish!
5… I’m probably the biggest klutz you’ll ever meet. Between falling up the stairs more times than I care to admit and walking into things, I’m a cluster of accidents waiting to happen. Amazingly I’ve never broken anything more than a toe or two.
6… I am a procrastinator. I should have been writing this post about a week ago whenever I was first given this award…. but I started putting it off & now here I sit. Finally, 3 days into writing this post, I’m finally finishing it. I can know about a crafty project 3 months ahead of time but without fail the week before it needs to be completed I am against the wall cranking it out at the last-minute. (I will say some of my best writing has occurred @ 4:00 AM, only hours before a research paper was due!) Time management is NOT my forte… going to make a concerted effort. LATER.
7… I am a “fixer”. When there’s a problem I want to fix it. If a friend is in distress I want to help. If someone is down I want to cheer them up. If someone is sick I want to make them feel better. Giving words of encouragement or a listening ear may be all it takes but I’m always up for a challenge. The hardest part tends to be when you surround yourself with people who tend not to reciprocate when you are the one that needs some fixing.
Soooooo…. there you have it. 7 more dirty little secrets about yours truly. Now you know wayyyyy more about me than you probably ever wanted!
Time for me to get back to business. Time to take my nail polish off & paint my nails.
Eh, maybe later.
