Not to brag, but 52 Facesrecently awarded me Kick Ass Blogger status. Isn't that freakin' fantastic? I've ordered the tiara, and the pleather jumpsuit with "Kick Ass Blogger" bedazzled in pink rhinestones across the back is on its way.
Now I get to do my part to pass along the feeling of pride that is currently swelling my head.
The rules: "Do you know any bloggers that kick ass?Maybe they've got incredible, original content. Or they're overflowing with creativity. Is it someone that helps you become a better blogger? Or a bloggy friend you know you can count on? Or maybe it's someone who simply inspires you to be a better person... or someone else who sends you to the floor, laughing your ass off.Whatever the reason may be, I'm sure you know at least a couple of bloggers that kick ass. Well... why not tell 'em so?LOVE ON 'EM Choose 5 bloggers that you feel are "Kick Ass Bloggers" Let 'em know in your post or via email, twitter or blog comments that they've received an award Share the love and link back to both the person who awarded you and back to www.mammadawg.com Hop on back to the Kick Ass Blogger Club HQ to sign Mr. Linky then pass it on!"
Mamikaze: she has challenged me to put more effort into this blogging thing. AND, she was the one who introduced me to Twitter (not sure if I should thank her or curse her for that new addiction)
In April of 2005, my husband and I packed up our two dogs and toddler and moved to Seattle from the San Francisco Bay area. Shortly after our move, I became pregnant with our second child. As exciting as this was, it definitely put a cramp in my ability to explore our new home town. I'm still working hard at adjusting to the new digs.
As a working mom to two small boys, I manage to keep pretty busy. Between business meetings, play dates and pediatrician appointments, there isn't much time left for personal pursuits. But that is a trade off I am willing to make. I'll find time for myself when the boys are old enough to borrow the car, right?
And as though that isn't enough, when we moved we bought our first house, a major fixer upper. Yeah, we wanted the "this Old House" experience, but little did I realize that it would lead to such great experiences, like the sudden loss of running water from a broken water main, or a leaky sewer pipe that kept the toilet off limits for days.
All I can say is that life sure is interesting!
