Whoever it was that said parenting is a serious job, has never read the blog--- Up in the Night.
I found Shauna through hopping from one blog to another blog and, after I stopped laughing, I subscribed via bloglines and have been enjoying her hilariously quirky takes on motherhood ever since. Well I have, lately, been twice honored by her. Firstly she tagged me for a meme and secondly she awarded me a very touching award. I can't tell you how much that I appreciate that. I haven't been writing my own blog for long but I really enjoy it! This lets me know that others, kinda, sorta, enjoy it as well.
Here is one, out of the many that I love, that I think really deserves this:
Linda Wagner over at The Ten Pound Club---This blog always brings me back to the place I need to be. You would be hard pressed to find a kinder woman. In fact, if she is open to adoption... one can never have too many moms!
Now onto the rules for the meme:
- You have to post these rules before you give the facts.
- Players, you must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of their middle name. If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had.
- When you are tagged you need to write your own blog-post containing your own middle name game facts.
- At the end of your blog-post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.
So here goes:
S-simplicity To know me is to know that I am crazy and late and disorganized but I crave simplicity and I have made some really great advances into this realm lately and am very proud of it
A-appreciative I am deeply appreciative of all that I have. My husband who gave me two gorgeous children, a home and love. And I appreciate God who gave me my life. Now this sounds like the academy awards
R-real I like to be as honest and real as I can to myself and all around me.
A-amiable I try to be as friendly to everyone as I possibly can.
H-hilarious No one else may think that I am funny but I sure get a kick out of myself. (what can I say? I like stupid jokes!)
E-earnest I don't seek Him as I should or study to show myself an approved workmen like I should. Through all my human ways, though, I earnestly love God.
L-lies & liars My biggest all time pet peeve. I actually despise people who lie. I lose all respect and they seem weak to me. I get that from my dad who shares a similar distaste for dishonest people.
I-interesting Where some people say weirdo and freak, I say pleasantly interesting.
Z-zest Cheesy word, but actually very apt, I think. I have a zest for life that shows especially when my back is against the wall. I look at hard times as an adventure. Something you can pull yourself out of.
A-acumen My husband has said this about me...I'm not making all of this up...you know. I feel that I have some good insight in a lot of things. It really comes in handy when I need to deal with things with my kids and husband. not always mind you but at times I can sit down with them and say exactly what needs to be said to get them to understand.
B-brave While I may not like any kinds of heights, spiders or dark small spaces. I went to meet my in-laws in Mexico city with a 6 month old baby and sans husband (he had to work). We had been married, at that point, for 2 years but I had never gotten to meet the family...and no I really didn't speak very much Spanish and no they didn't speak very much English but I stayed for a month (I have, since that time, spent a combined total of 4 months there and I love it). There are varying degrees of bravery, I think.
E-Edgard Really I am silly about him.
T-together My husband and children and I are stuck like crazy---and I emphasize the word crazy---glue. And I, personally, wouldn't want it any other way.
H-hotheaded I am quicker to anger than I would like, but I am praying about it.
....And that is the most that I will talk directly about myself for a very long time.
So I will not follow rule #4 very closely since it would be cruel to do so, but I will tag two other people. Two sounds like a good compromise between none and 14, right?
1. funny sweet Lady T
2. beautifully honest betzy at her blog: a work in progress
