Last time I won anything, it was a German Chocolate cake

Since the post below is probably long enough to keep you all busy for a day or two, let me just take this opportunity to thank Melody at Slurping Life for this:


The award is described as:

For those who bring unique and creative elements to their blogs. For those who incorporate art, music, creative writing, photo’s, and other beautiful visual effects into their website. For those who put a unique spin on things and come up with new ideas. This award is for the artsy, the funky, the inventor, and even the rebel. This award is for those creative individuals who stand out from the crowd.

I am honored to get the award, especially from someone like Melody, who is parenting a child who went through much of what I did.  They are lucky to have found each other, but I know it cannot be easy for Melody to read these words when it makes her think about what her own son went through.  Thanks for sticking with me!

I had a hard time figuring out which of the fantastic blogs I read to award it to, but I finally had to make a decision.  So, I pass this along to Slouching Mom because her writing makes me laugh and think and want to go out bar hopping with her.  And to Kaliroz, whose writing makes me wish I were a better singer.

  1. I’d go bar hopping with you anytime. That is, if you didn’t live in England. And anyway, it’d be pub hopping there, wouldn’t it? I’m hoping to get to England one of these years…

    Thank you. In writing that I make you laugh, you have given me hard evidence to show my husband as proof that he is full of sh*t when he tells me that I lack any sense of humor at all. 😉

    This was a lovely surprise!

  2. Congrats, Emily! It is an honor well deserved. I’ve been riveted by your story ever since I started coming by, although I have to admit I didn’t have enough of the right stuff to read that last vomit post! (I can’t even hear that someone threw up without feeling sick to my stomach.)

    And it is more than just your story, it is the creative way in which you are telling it.

  3. Crud! There was an error and my comment didn’t take.

    Well deserved award, blah, blah, blah… riveting posts, yada, yada, yada… had to skip over that last vomit one, though–very strong gag reflex… looking forward to more!

  4. congrats to you, so well deserved

  5. doh — i’m an idiot for not congratulating you, i was all befuddled when i saw my name there — yes yes yes it’s well deserved — just don’t forget us when you publish your book.

  6. Well deserved too!

  7. Yay Emily! Very well deserved.

  8. Oh, congrats to you!

    And thank you too, so much.

    I don’t know what else to say.

  9. Thanks, folks! And those of you who haven’t visited Melody, Slouching Mom, and Kaliroz — go! You’re in for a treat.

  10. I am thrilled to read your acceptance speech. Now on with the bar hopping…and may I tag along?

  11. Hooray! Three cheers for Emily!
