This....THAT....and Another Thing

WOW! I have been extremely busy these days. The spring weather is calling, so we are spending more time outside. I am loving it. Now if Sugar would stop waking up at the rump crack of dawn, I'd have no complaints.

I am ridiculously behind in acknowledging all the really wonderful awards folks have bestowed upon me. I quite possibly could have missed some as, if I don't write it down right is gone. Please don't take it personally. I can't even remember what I just had for dinner 30 minutes ago. sigh.....

Quite some time ago the ultra fabulous Autumn handed over the

WOW! Wonderful women bloggers......I have met some really winners in the last year. My heart is fuller just knowing you all. I'd love to pass this great award on to:

-Jeanette whose photography inspires me

-Kat, of My Two Cents, who is worth a lot more than that.

-Holly bo bolly....or maybe it is just Holly

Then, Heidi passed on the

So many of you make my day, that is so hard to just choose a few, but somebody has to might just as well be ME:

-My dear friend Suzy

-Ann from An Ecletic Blog

-CMB from A Virgo's Point of View

I'd love to hand this one (fuzzy as it is...sigh) to some bloggers that are always showing some gratitude....or attitude:

-Miss Megan of Fried Okra

-Things You Didn't Do

Lastly, but not leastly (tee hee) the ever lovely Michelle from The Life of a Child gave me the

I don't know about YOU, but these great bloggers make my heart flutter:

-Tommie of the Tuesday Update

-Secret Agent Mama

Thank you thank you thank to each and every one of my wonderful readers. You bless my heart everyday. Believe it or week will mark my ONE YEAR of blogging. time flies.

My girl, Meghan tagged me with the tee hee

It all started over at Smith Magazine, and the history is thus:

Legend has it that Hemingway was once challenged to write a story in only six words. His response? “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.” Last year, SMITH Magazine re-ignited the recountre by asking our readers for their own six-word memoirs. They sent in short life stories in droves, from the bittersweet (“Cursed with cancer, blessed with friends”) and poignant (“I still make coffee for two”) to the inspirational (“Business school? Bah! Pop music? Hurrah”) and hilarious (“I like big butts, can’t lie”).

Here are the rules:
1) Write your own six word memoir.
2) Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you’d like.
3) Link to the person that tagged you in your post, and to the original post if possible so we can track it as it travels across the blogosphere.
4) Tag at least five more blogs with links.
5) Don’t forget to leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play.
6) Have fun.

This is hard to do really hard. I have thunk....and thunk....and thudded. I nearly cracked under the pressure, but I settled on something pretty obvious.

Lived, loved, learned minute by minute.

I realize that I am now required to tag some fellow bloggers, but I think I'd rather let YOU decided if you are up to the challenge.

Have a great weekend!

*** oh and don't forget I'm on Top Momma! CLICK HERE!!!!! I know.....It's getting a bit old, but I am so thrilled to have lasted 4 months on there. What a blessing. Thank you all who have clicked on the link and helped me achieve this accomplishment.***

OMG!! I was just about to head to bed and then I thought... hmmmm I wonder what wonderful thing Corey has posted tonight? I was planning on lurking, because I haven't had much time for commenting lately, but WOW to my suprise I found an award for me. I don't know if all my bitching and moaning about being a stay-at-home-mom is called "parenting", but I'll take it. I'm so flattered. Thanks a bunch!!

You're a doll. Thank you!

I'm glad (in a sick kind of way) that I'm not the only one who is behind on giving awards out. Not that I'm happy you're behind, just that it makes me feel a little less lonely. If you know what I mean!

I may take you up on that six word thing. Sounds really cool!

How did I sleep on this? You are awesome for thinking of me! Hope your internet issues are fixing themselves. Saw you stopped today, so I kinda figured they may have. Either way, thanks! Cute pictures of that miniature pony today too.
