Blog Award -- and Nominations!

Thank you, Grace (of Grace’s Fat Chance) for your nomination for this Versatile Blogger Award! I’m so sorry that it has taken me so long to claim it and pass it along! I’ve been busy getting ready for my surgery Tuesday! With Hubby gone out of town, everything has fallen to me.

Here are the rules for this award:

  1. Thank the person giving the award.
  2. Share seven things about yourself.
  3. Nominate 15 newly discovered blogs.
  4. Let your nominees know about the award.

  1. Done! See above!
  2. Seven things about myself? I’m generally a pretty open book, so it’s hard to think of things that might be interesting to you.
    • I was invited to -- and a attended -- one of the Inaugural Balls hosted by the Clinton's at President Clinton's first inauguration. My older sister was my date!
    • I am the Mother/staff to The Kitties Three -- three very different, but always delightful, cats.
    • I prefer studio recordings to live recordings, so I don't generally enjoy concerts and live shows.
    • I've had my naval pierced for nearly 16 years! Sadly, it must come out for the band surgery.
    • I met my Hubby on the internet in a BBW chat room on IRC -- almost 15 years ago!
    • I was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder, Type I, about 16 years ago. I'm stable with medication, but I've had my moments through the years!
    • I am an artist (wow, that was hard to type!).
  3. 15 newly discovered blogs? So many of the blogs I read have already received this award, so I may not make it to 15!

Now, just to let everyone know!


  1. Wow! I found some bloggers on that list that are new to me too... I did want to see more things about you... what happened with that list? *Maria*-blogger from "This one time at BAND Camp..." Check out my blog at mybigfatbandgeeklife.blogspot.com

  2. OMG I am so jealous that you were able to get to an Inaugural Ball and for Clinton no less!!! :)

  3. Thank you!

    Your surgery is TOMORROW! YEA!

  4. Thanks cupcake.
    Good luck with tomorrow's surgery.
    We'll be thinking of you.

  5. Thank you so much for the nomination! How cool is this community? I'm amazed by it each and every day. I wish I would have known this world existed before I decided on the band. It would have made me feel less alone in this life long struggle. - Sarah (Anniversary Band)

  6. Thank you so much for the nomination!! I can honestly say this is the best thing I have ever done for myself (and I actually treat myself to some pretty nice things.... ) I am anxious to catch up on you and your journey. Please don't hesitate to reach out to me if you need anything!!
