First of all Tammy, from Tammys-Two Cents was kind enough to grace me with the Sunshine award.
Then Jess, from It's all about the Savings gave me the Beautiful Blogger award THEN someone else has given me an award (a blog mom/friend mentioned it to me) but I'm thinking it must be on a giveaway post, since I can't find it - and I only check the giveaway ones when I'm about to Random it, (which is why yours took me so long to see Tammy!) Annnyway -stop by these two wonderful blogs, they do a great job - Tammy your floor pics were great, and I loved how everyone got involved :D and Jess - the Birthday Freebies - niiice. Thank you both for the honor - & I also appreciate mystery award #3, when I find you. And I will.
I was contemplating going all cherry-pop happy today, & couldn't muster the enthusiasum. So I nixed that pretty dang quick.
This morning as I was looking around, I found a couple of new sites that had a common theme - which mainly was "Confessions" and "Being Yourself". Well - I have a confession to make. I'm not 'being myself', when I'm online. I'm polite, courteous, even forgiving of perceived slights. I make light of things that in real life, may have slaughtered me, laughed at something my kids did, when really, I was laughing, while holding & kissing, and being a Mom. (Which can't be summed up in 4 sentences)
I don't take friendship lightly, I don't eat enough (in the last year I lost close to 90 pounds, I kid you not, just from being sick, going off certain meds. I was on for Lupus & losing my appetite)
I can unfairly ground one of my kids, getting the wrong end of the story.
I like hard music - as in the kind you see 20 year olds head-banging too, I have a tattoo, my accent hasn't completely dried up, but it's getting close.
I gossip, (however hard I try not too) I worry over little things like a dirty look from someone, a harsh word, a certain tone. I sweat the small stuff. As well as the big. And I've kicked some serious ass in my time, as well as gotten mine kicked.
I think it's much more interesting when you know who the "who" is behind the blog. OH! One more thing - (Katie, you will love this)
My real name is : Joliene. A closely guarded secret, & not one freely given. I.Hate.It.
(Sorry Mum), but it's just one of those names that I cannot stand, hate to hear it, on me at least. I can see it on someone else and think - 'it suits her'. Why not me? I have no idea, I'm more of a ... I actually don't know. A "Joe" I guess. And to top it off - it was after the DOLLY PARTON song!! Oh, the humanity ...
This (early) White Stripes version, does make the song sound bearable (who am I kidding? I absolutely LOVE this version, but still. The.Name.Sucks. enjoy!)
