You know you are getting older when...

You don't remember being absentminded.

Two very WONDERFUL bloggers have given me awards in the past several months, neither of which I've remembered to post and pass on until now. Well, that's not entirely accurate. I remembered the awards VERY often. What I couldn't remember was to post the little darlin's. But then again, I haven't remembered to post anything lately. Seems my get up and go has got up and went!

Rita (my friend with the dogs who needed new homes) ... I wonder how Will is doing these days. I really need to remember to ask her... says I'm the original short attention span theater lately. We'll be in the middle of a conversation and ... OH!! hey look! There's a gecko on the window! ... oh ummm Sorry... and I get distracted by the least little ... dang! I really should dust my coke bottles.


Really! I didn't make up a single syllable of that! It is exactly how my mind has been working lately! So, given the fact that my recent inability to gitterdone has effected not only the accomplishment of tasks, but has also drastically reduced the speed with which they don't get accomplished, I've come up with a brand new award just for me... (and for anybody else you feel needs to be snail slimed into remembering to post an award you already gave 'em!)

Now that I'm thinking about it (and I better think quick or the thought'll be gone!), I should have made that the Ungrateful Old Witch award.

OK - enough self-flagellation ... ON TO THE GOOD STUFF!

These two awards are created by Mamarazzi at Dandelion Wishes so she could pass on the love! She passed 'em to Debbie Yost at Three Weddings. Debbie was kind enough to pass them to me.

Hmmmm... Who to pass them on to??? I have so many wonderful people who read me and whom I read that this is a REEEEEALY tough choice. (Partially because I HATE for people to think I didn't choose them because I didn't like 'em!) But here goes...

Mr. Froggy goes to:
Brandi at O. W. IN G. S.
AZ Mom
Lisa - Rollin' with the punches

It's almost 3 a.m. I'm tired. My plan was to put in links to everyone of the wonderful people who faithfully show up here and read my sporadic blatherings, but I'm too tired. So, if you regularly leave comments you know who you are and you DESERVE THIS AWARD! LOL! If not, get busy and start leaving more comments and then you, too, will deserve it! LOL!

Puffy goes to:
Lucille at Who's Going to Tell You ...

I'll be back later to finish getting the names in here... If I can remember not to forget about it!

Kalynne, The Philosopher-Mom, God love her sweet soul, thinks I'm unique. That, to me, is huge praise. At this particular moment, though, I'm uniquely exhausted and so I'm going to take the gutless wonder way out and promise to come back in a day or so and get the forwards done on these.


  1. Darling, I'm so honoured! You're sweet to me.

    You're not having a wonderful time right now, so don't worry about your attention span. It will all come right again when you're back to your normal (scatty!) self.

    Take care, and thanks for Mr. Froggy.

  2. Thanks, Damama! I've done more commenting lately than I have posting. I just can't seem to get in the mood. I was planning to post an update on our Summer. Now would be the perfect time, wouldn't it?

    If it's any consolation, my conversations seem to go the same way. Usually, Jon is on the other end of those conversations and it drives him crazy at times.

    Thanks again for the award! I'll try to get it up right away. I probably won't award it to anyone, yet. I may wait until people have a chance to actually comment on something before I award it. Hmm...can I send the award back to you?

    Have a great weekend!

  3. These awards are fun to receive, but sometimes passing them on can be so time consuming! Especially when you have so many people you want to pass it on to and link to! Congrats on all the awards. You deserve them all.

  4. Well thank you for the froggy award! :)

    You deserve another award: the Good Blogging Buddy, Internet Friend, Things are Gonna Get Better, Have a Great Weekend Award!

    I'm just sayin'........

  5. Did we ever have a memory? I vaguely remember that first year before children.

  6. Awww..thanks :-) I love commenting and reading your blog always puts a smile on my face!

    Love you!!

  7. I got a puffy? What's a puffy? Heck, I don't care - you gave it to me so I'll take it!


    And congrats on more awards - you deserve it girlfriend! We all love daMAMA!

    Always reading - trying to always comment.
