I am very glad that this first week back from vacation has been a short one. Having to get myself and the girls up at 6:30am again has proven to be a struggle over the past several days (just ask my frustrated hubby), as has trying to get all of us out of the house on time. Abby and Hannah go back to school next week and all of our evening activities start back up then as well though, so I am happy to be jumping back into the 'swing' of things relatively slowly. And very happy that it's Friday and another two days off are ahead of me before I have to deal with all of the craziness again. :)
I need to catch back up (again!) on some bloggy housekeeping items and Fridays always seem to be such a good time for that. I have a few awards to acknowledge - and some tags as well, but I'll probably do those in separate posts so that this one doesn't get way too long.
Isn't this a very cool idea for an award! I received the "I Less-than-three your Blog!" award from Karen at Pediascribe a little while ago. She said,
"One more thing….Deb at Mom of 3 Girls….I less-than-three your blog too, but you just posted way too much for me to keep up with! Girl, I’m up to 39 unread posts from you! So you can accept this award from me even though you probably thought I stopped reading two weeks ago! I do less-than-three your blog!!"
LOL, I think I did go a little post crazy back in December - maybe the freedom of not having to post every day after NaBloPoMo ended caused me to create what I will admit was probably an overabundance of wordiness. Oops. Hopefully I can keep a somewhat steadier pace here in 2008 and will try to post on a regular basis without overwhelming anyone. :)
Anyway, thank you Karen - it means a lot to me that you even tried to keep up, especially considering how crazy busy your life has been. I 'less-than-three' your blog right back!
Over at The Life of a School Bus Driver! I received a wonderful Christmas present - I was her 'Blogger of the Day' on December 25th. What an honor - and thank you so much! :)
Wow, this was a surprise - I discovered that I was included in 1 Million Love Messages' list of 2007 inspiring blogs. Thank you so much! Here is the full list of all 200 awardees:
I also received an award from (and created by) El Gigante Verdoso - the 'You Rock My Socks' award, which was given to mostly the same list as the one above, so I won't include it here. Thank you!
Have a wonderful weekend!
