Hey! I Got an Award!

 As I mentioned a few days ago, Carol, the creative force behind The Antique Texan,
was gracious enough to give me the
That was August 18th. Not that I procrastinate.
I hemmed and hawed (yes, I haw upon occasion) because I couldn't think of anything to share that might be interesting. At all.
So I asked you guys.
And oh, did I get responses!
Now, on to the rules of accepting this award!
Rules: 1. Thank and link back to the person that gave you this award.      Thank you Carol for the incredible compliment you paid me. And if any of you have yet to check out her blog, I definitely recommend it. It's a daily stalk for me.     2. Share 7 things about yourself.   As asked by my wonderful readers...
Brandy@Life of Perks said... 1. I think I read somewhere that you mentioned you have 20 cats? Are these all permanent? Animal rescue? Foster care, etc? We used to be foster parents for an animal rescue in AR, that's why I ask. We're huge animal lovers, always love to meet others.    We do indeed have 20 cats, all of whom are permanent as far as I'm concerned. I also wear a hat made of used foil and keep my prized possessions in a Walmart shopping cart out back. We have adopted a few out using Kijiji with the promise to take them back if the relationship doesn't work out, but for the most part, they become family pretty quickly. We go through two 16 pound bags of dry food weekly and 8 to 10 cans on the weekends for an event I call Caturday; Saturday and Sunday mornings pre-dawn, I open 4 tuna tins and dive out of the way as a sea of plumed tails converges. Saturday evenings are Nip Night; we just sprinkle loose catnip near the French doors and watch the wallow fest. That's a lot of stoned fur babies. Good times...         Oh, laser pointers and brand new laminate floors? Best. Thing. EVER.    Sara @ Russet Street Reno said... 2. How is it being older than your hubs? I'm just 3 years older than my fiance and he is constantly teasing me about being an old fart. Oh, and that I have 'old eggs'...I'm only 31! haha   I found that a younger man is easier to train. Sam is my junior by 7 years, and I've only needed a whip and chair here and there. We figure women outlive men by seven years, so we're practicing our synchronized dropping dead. In thirty years.     And old eggs make mellow children. I was 34 when I had Savannah.       Michelle L.@ Mic L. in L.A. said... 3. Were you always this hilarious?        I get in trouble at home because I can find something humorous in anything. We were laughing on the front lawn while the house was on fire. I walked up to a fireman in my hooker-chic leopard print robe and asked, "Did you have to chop the entire kitchen into kindling?" "We didn't go near the kitchen, Ma'am." "Do you still have time?" He grinned and offered me an ax.   4. Do your kids find you as funny as we do? Believe it or not, I have three teenagers who think I'm cool, funny, and and a good source of advice. Their friends even like me.  My kids are into theater and film, and they all have warped little minds as well. Life at our house comes off like improv sometimes.   5. What have you written in your non-blog life?  Grocery lists.  Actually, I had the stereotypical start of an aspiring writer, with a few short stories and poems published early on; I also was editor of the high school paper and had a column on the local rag. Somewhere in there making a living got in the way, but now I get to pound the keys every day and hit "Publish" with no rejection letters ever landing in my inbox. All hail the interwebs!   6. Can I see a picture of the world's ugliest sweetheart of a dog?

7. You may have mentioned this somewhere already, but I'm curious about your career (past, present, future). Day trader? Human Society Volunteer Coordinator? Full-time mom? CEO of Ebay? Spill it!      I've never been a SAHM; however, I've always been a full time Mom. I've been a free lance artist, a maître d’ at a yacht club, a restaurant manager, and now I'm in advertising. But my number one job is wife.      3. Pass the award to at least 4 fellow bloggers who inspire you.       Ladies, for giving me the inspiration to write this post, I am passing this award to the 4 of you. Thank you for the help and the awesome ideas!  *My apologies for how jumbled this post is; Blogger will not save my chages for some reason.

I laughed out loud when you said you were practicing synchronized dropping dead! ha

Good to know about the old eggs, I love mellow kids.

Michelle L. said...

Oh, yay to the nth! What a blast of a post, I loved all the answers, and thanks for the puppy dawg. He (she?) is NOT ugly, she (he) is incredibly cute! Thank you for the award, O esteemed bloggy friend! (I'm kinda shy and might not actually accept it with the divulging of the personal stuff, etc. But THANK you!)

Amanda said...

Thanks for the award! You are hilarious.

Heather said...

Woman, you are funny... I can see why your kids still like you:)

And your pup just melt my heart!
