Yeah, I have had an award bestowed on my blog!

But, you will have to peruse the plethora of prattling before you get to the Wonderful Award part.

I am feeling better after laying in bed for 2 days. I was never Extremely Ill, but all stuffy & headachey & fatigued with cough. Knowing what I know about my immune system, I knew the best bet for feeling better by Sunday was to stay in bed doing nothing, resting, taking vitamins and NyQuil.

My neck feels compacted.

Today, Ki made macaroni for lunch. He used a cheese grater to drain the water. We have normal colanders. Some may think this is inventive and ingenious of him. Truth be told, it was a Lazy Kid thing. Th Colander was way in the back of the cupboard and the cheese grater was right in the front. Necessity is the mother of invention & Laziness is the mother of Ingenuity.

And now mt announcement! my blog has been given a award! (wonders never cease~)
Phyllis at "ALL Things Beautiful" has given me a Blog Award. THANKS!

Phyllis is a newer blog I have been following. She has great pictures and stories of all the fun things she does with her kids. She home schools & has 4 sons and a daughter. (if I have read correctly, I missed the daughter the first time I read her blog). Go check out her blog!

1) Thank and link back to the person who awarded you this award.
2) Share 7 things about yourself.
3) Award 15 recently discovered great blogs/bloggers.
4) Contact the bloggers to tell them about the award.

Seven new things? I guess new depends on how long you have been reading my blog and what you remember.

  1. I have a younger brother, Erik. He's 7.5 yrs younger than me. He has a son named Aspen.
  2. I lived in Virginia for a year. (my husband had a 1 yr rotation job in D.C.)
  3. I was home schooled for part of 5th grade and did not enjoy it. (homeschooling was so different back then! my mom didn't have anywhere near the types of resources home schoolers have today)
  4. I still have my Teddy bear from when I was almost a year old. I still sleep with him sometimes.
  5. I was hit by a car the summer between 2nd and 3rd grade. Or was it between 3rd & 4th?
  6. I helped take care of abandoned iguanas for my dad. (the year before we moved to California)
  7. I had pet salamanders when I was little.
Now onto awarding new (to me) bloggers
