On the red carpet is none other than CA Girl to accept her award....Life is Good from Nikki at Simple Living in a Big City! And now for her acceptance speech...
First of all I would like thank Miss Nikki for thinking of me for this award! It seriously made my day. In accepting this award, I have agreed to answer 10 questions...
1) If you blog anonymously are you happy doing it that way; if you are not anonymous do you wish you had started out anonymously so you could be anonymous now?
I do not blog anonymously, nor do I intend to. If I can't be straight with you all what's the point?
2) Describe one incident that shows your inner stubborn side.
I'm not stubborn! I'm not! I'm not! I'm not!
3) What do you see when you really look at yourself in the mirror?
Honestly it depends on the day. Sometimes I see a very tired worn out person, and other times I see someone who knows what she is doing...that day!
4) What is your favorite summer cold drink?
5) When you take time for yourself, what do you do?
Time for myself? Hahahahahaha! I blog whenever I get the chance. And if I am feeling ambitious I may just upstairs and soak in the tub.
6) Is there something you still want to accomplish in your life? What is it?
I want to learn a foreign language. There is more, but I will leave it at that.
7) When you attended school, were you the class clown, the class overachiever , the shy person, or always ditching?
Shy, ditching, clown that over achieves selectively.
8) If you close your eyes and want to visualize a very poignant moment of your life what would you see?
When my kids were born, simply because at those exact moments, my life would be forever changed.
9) Is it easy for you to share your true self in your blog or are you more comfortable writing posts about other people or events?
I am much more comfortable with the written word. My words flow better, and I can delete whenever it is necessary.
10) If you had the choice to sit down and read or talk on the phone, which would you do and why?
Shoot, that is a hard one. I love adult conversation. It's a rare and precious gem!! But I also love to lose myself in a good book.
And now, as a recipient of this award, I am tasked with paying it forward...in no particular order:
Joy at The Practical Mom Guide
Linda at The Good, The Bad, The Worse
Emmy at EmmyMom--One Day At A Time
Shelley at Hand in Hand
Glam at Glamazon Mormon Mom
Cheryl at Little Bit Quirky
Okay new recipients...it is your turn to share the love and accept your awards.
I was not held back in kindergarten, though I do believe if it is necessary it should be done. I did go to three different elementary schools. I was in one school for kindergarten, we moved, then 1st -3rd until that school closed, and finally the last one 4- 6. The controversial piece? Way back in 1984, when AIDS was a taboo subject and we were afraid to breathe the same air as someone with it because we were ignorant...the high school editor tackled a very controversial subject. Whether or not students with AIDS should be allowed to attend school or not. My answer was this: I think they should. We do not know how this disease is transmitted. We need to treat everyone fairly. The article was published 4 years later after that student had graduated. It made the local paper. I met my high school sweetheart through that. He was the photographer.
