We have been busy today running errands, packing the van, driving and schlepping dorm room stuff (up to the fourth floor!) and have just returned from dropping off Kid One for Year Two of college.
So now I have a chance to thank Mimi publicly, and to steal from her post the info about this award, created by Skittles.
Mimi is one of the first five recipients, and she was kind enough to select me as one of her honorees. Quoting the Queen:
I do enjoy being recognized, I must admit. I also admit to pangs of guilt, because each day I read such beautifully written posts that evoke emotions ranging from tears to laughter. I am invariably brief in what I post and tend not to reveal much of myself ...
It is difficult to come up with just five bloggers. Here goes:
I'll start with my first blogosphere acquaintance, Joan, The Erstwhile Librarian. She is a retired librarian who is detail oriented and analytical, as is her sister, Lynn, A Tired Mama, to whom I am also presenting this award.
Their cousin, Ina, the buyer who can't wait to retire, is also deserving. These three great women all live in California, as does my fourth honoree, Michael C who cracks me up. I laugh out loud as I read his words, which are usually about nothing worthwhile.
Last but by no means least is Michael's best blogging buddy and my new acquaintance, Odat. She has a wonderful sense of humor and spreads peace to all whenever she leaves a comment. This week Odat even introduced us via video to her little snot dog, Spud. An interesting canine, for sure.
Stealing again from Mimi: Please display your badge - should you choose to accept it - on your blog with a link from whence it came and name five super bloggers.
You must also mention that it originated at Skittles' Place so that she can keep track of the award's progress.
P.S. I also stole the idea to use different colors and fonts from Mimi. I hope the Queen doesn't get into a snit about this.
