The Creative Blogger Award

As I was working on my This Week in Books post, I got the notification from the awesome blogger who runs Page Turners Inc that I was one of the five he’d chosen for the Creative Blogger Award after he’d been nominated.


Thank you, sir!

Lets do this.

The Rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you and include a link to their blog.
  • Share 5 facts about yourself.
  • Nominate some bloggers in return and notify them about their nomination.
  • Keep the rules in your post to make it easy for everyone to know what to do.

Well, I did the first rule in my opening lines, so here we go.

5 Facts about Myself

1.) I’m a mother to two children. One living. One dead. Both have/had different terminal illnesses. (When it rains, it pours!) Luckily we’ve fought Miss L’s disease to a standstill for the moment.

2.) I have a ridiculously fast reading speed, but I am not a speed reader. I read every line. No skimming!

3.) I have a mouth that would make a sailor blush. Its really hard to censor myself for these posts. Miss L censors me at home. “Mommy! That’s a bad word and you shouldn’t say it!

4.) I love  bad movies. Love, love, love them. The crappy CGI, the over-the-top acting. Classic, man.

5.) I growl at people, complete with upper lip curled up and teeth bared. I’ve found its a really effective way to get the “MINE! Back off!” And yes, if you’re brave enough to get your hands near whatever I’m holding anyways, I will snap my teeth at you. Its an easy way to get my point across without seeming rude, because most people think its funny (even though I’m serious!)

Okay, so the people I nominate are: ( If you don’t want to participate of course don’t feel pressured to, and if you already have done it then great! More then one person thinks you are cool!)

  1. I cannot imagine losing one child, let alone losing two. Miss L sounds like a fantastic little girl! I always enjoy your blog posts that include her thoughts about children’s books 🙂 I am also a fast reader…it drives my friends nuts. If we’re reading the same book, I finish DAYS before they do. If we’re reading in the same room, they get huffy and grumble about my turning pages so quickly. I can’t help it! Hmph.

    Thanks for the nomination. I’ll be completing this one soon!

    1. I’m very glad you can’t imagine losing a child. I hope you never, ever go through it. Its been 2 years and I still have flashbacks. (We had to take her off life support.)

      Miss L is a fantastic little girl. Everyone who knows her loves her. (I’m not exaggerating. I haven’t met a person yet who didn’t go gaga over her.) I can’t even walk through bloody grocery store with her without having her recognize someone or someone recognize her, and me ending up going “Uhm, why are you hugging my child?”

      I love doing her kids book reviews. Partly because I want to make sure she’s never forgotten. That when she goes, people will still remember her for ages.

    1. Well, as the word terminal suggests, Miss L’s illness will eventually kill her. However, we hope to have at least a couple more years of her doing well. It could change in a day though -.- Stupid disease. Thank you for caring.
