There are things that make you feel bad...
  • Like finding out that your 80 year old father was called into the Principal's office for being an unwitting accomplice in your daughter's escape attempt from school
  • Finding out that your two-year old child had "coco-butted" your father so hard that she broke his nose (that was a looonnnggg time ago, but still a traumatic memory)
  • Forgetting to send out Christmas cards (ok, forgetting to buy Christmas cards to send out)
  • Having your Wii tell you that your Wii Mii is 20 years older than your real "me"
  • Backing out of the garage into your garage door
  • Tripping on that broken up piece of sidewalk on your 5AM run and resulting sidewalk damage the morning you are expecting Washington DC consultants in (can you say, I'm a goober...)
Yeah, all true stories...

Then, there are things that make you feel good...
  • Finally getting your Wii Mii age to the same age as your real "me" age
  • Comfortable clothes
  • Minimal traffic on your 45 minute commute to/ from work
  • Coming home from work at night and finding that your neighbor had snow-blown the several inches of snow that had fallen on your driveway during the day
  • Having a very fussy child 1) not complain about dinner, 2) help you make it and 3) tell you that its good
  • Getting a comment that someone likes your blog and has passed along a blog award to you
Thank you to the very sweet Kathy at Bake Away with Me for passing along a Sisterhood of World Bloggers badge to me.  I feel honored to be on the same list with the other great bloggers she mentioned.  It was just the thing to lift my spirits on a blustery, winter day.  So, thank you, Kathy!  You rock.

  2. Congrat to you on your award. Life is filled with moments like these...

  3. Thanks, ladies! And congrats to both of you on your Stylish Blogger Awards!

  4. Isn't it wonderful how the good ALWAYS balances out the bad and most usually tips the scale? It's certainly what keeps us all going! Congratulations on your Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award! It is very well deserved and I am so happy to be a part of your community of bloggers.
