I got nominated by Gorzalicious for a blog award!  How cool is that???  I don’t think I’ve gotten an award since “Scariest Costume” in the Halloween parade in the fifth grade.  Forty years is a long time between awards, ya’ll.

So this award comes with rules.  I have to put the award button on my blog (fingers crossed I got that right); nominate 10 other inspiring blogs; and tell you seven things about myself you don’t know.  Hmmm.  I don’t think you know:

1.  I was a vegetarian for more than 10 years.  Then I got pregnant with kid #1.  ‘Nuff said.

2.  The first D I ever got was in Algebra II/Trigonometry.  (It’s possible the C- I got in Geometry the preceding year was a factor in this.)

3.  I’d  like to grow some vegetables in my backyard, but I have no idea how to deal with the snails, slugs, rabbits, and rodents who already eat up the plants out there.

4.  I switched my major in college from English to Nursing, then realized that I have no patience for sick people and switched back to English.

5.  Now I wish I’d gone with Library Science.

6.  I, like Nora Ephron, feel bad about my neck.  I’m developing a wattle.

7.  My kids think I’m a hippie.

The 10 inspiring blogs I nominate are:

Lessons From The End of a Marriage

Non Consumer Advocate

100 Days of Real Food

Motherhood Is An Art

Ellis Nelson

Life As Mom

Forcing Myself Happy

One Thousand Single Days

This Must Be Me

Marry Me Not

Go visit them and check out the awesomeness.
