How Do I Love Thee?

During the last week I have received several emails {no, not just the
usual ones imploring me to up my dosage! ;} But surprising, sweet,
amazing emails from people telling me that they had nominated me for
"Best Kept Secret" meaning a blog that a few people read but no one has
ever heard of! Sounds about right! HA!

I just wanted to thank you all...truly...deeply...madly... for going to that
much effort for a dork like me! The nominations process is not just:
"yah, that blog...click"...you have to nominate 2 other blogs too,
including their URL's {ie: www.whatalotof work.blogspot.com ;}
and then verify the email they send you! Sheesh! I am in no way worthy!

I have no idea how many nominations are needed to make the
final list and it ends on the 16th...but, these awards go to people
like Dooce, Pioneer Woman and the guy who created Blogger...
yah...I know. I don't have a snowballs chance...
But it's the thought that counts and I adore you for thinking of me!!!

And all of you who come here...and then come back again! I am so
thankful for you hearty souls who don't frighten easily and who entertain
my ridiculousness! {And by doing so only encourage me to write another
nonsensical post!!! ;} Without at least one person per day saying that I
made milk {or insert beverage of your choosing} come out their nose...
I might not have the will to go on! ;}

You are my daily BLOGGIE AWARD !

    (I've learned never to read your posts with anything in my mouth).

    You ARE WAY worthy!!!!! Oh and in case you haven't been keeping track...you have eleven hundred plus followers. Can you even wrap your head around the fact that you have over 1100 people who adore you??? WOW, sometimes I wonder if my kids even like me, or are just putting up with me. SO to think that 1100 people love you......

    I just had an idea. The next time one of my kids, especially my oldest son rolls his eyes at me, with that, my mom's on crack look, I am going to show him my followers!
