Zachary: Mommy, why do you work after you put us in bed?
Me: Because I have a lot of work to do honey, but I want to be with you when you are awake.
Julie, who ever so eloquently uses her words, awarded me this:
Now, technically, I have gotten this before, but, dude, I’ll take anything Julie wants to give me. The award originates here, and recipients are to go over and register themselves.
I worry sometimes about these awards. Clearly, I think quite a few people are a daily dose, or I wouldn’t be reading their blogs. Yet, if I listed 58 names here, no one would click, which would defeat the purpose. You see, what I like about getting these awards is they give me a chance to pass them along to other people, so that maybe someone who has not discovered a great blog will head on over.
What I do not like about these awards is that it may give the impression that, because I have not named your blog, I am excluding you or I have some people I like better than others. This is not the case, I promise. I love to hear from new people, so everyone should always feel free to leave comments. And, there are many, many blogs I like that I do not have a chance to recognize. Please do not feel I am trying to be cliquey or exclusionary; I have found the people here in the blogosphere to be anything but.
I am passing this award on to a few of the blogs I read, and I chose these particular ones because of specific things they have recently done:
Sober Briquette — Because her comments always hit the mark
One Plus Two — Because her posts make me want to be better
Woman on the Verge — Because any woman who mentions Habermas in a post on Valentine’s Day…
Milk Breath and Margaritas — because I jump for excitement when I see she has a new post up in her series on work/family balance
I have three postcards from the British Museum and one from Hampton Court Palace to the first commenters who ask for them.
