I'm finished. I'm done...stick a fork in me. Finito (sp?). The move is over. Wait...does that mean it's time to put the crap up and organize? Waaaaaahhhh. I've been crying alot lately. I can't count the broken nails, stubbed-toes, bruises on my shins, broken glasses (baby decided he wanted to help carry). Who the heck gave him the box with my good wineglasses? Sorry...didn't wear my contacts and couldn't see the writing clearly. My bad. At least I have two good ones left. I'll have a glass tonight to celebrate and save one for hubby. Shooooot girl...I did all the work. Hubby can get his own when he gets back, that other glass will be gone before bedtime.
Now. Can I reach out to the real world again? My arm is sore but I think I'm ready for an adult conversation that doesn't have a moving word attached. Is that possible...to write I must use verbs. It communicates an action...right...write? Sorry. I'll put the wine down.
Sorry. I got distracted again. I heard a beautiful voice singing on tv and Mom was watching the Oprah show so I stopped to see who it was singing. It was a 14 yr old boy with a killer voice. Reminded me of Luther Vandross. I couldn't hear the actual words until I heard the phrase..."Oscar Myer wiener." Okay...I put the wine down. He was singing the Oscar Myer hot dog song. Guess he won the jingle contest this year? Okay...that was what we call a happy crying. Ya know how sometimes you are just so tired, or frustrated and something triggers a laugh that turns into tears?
No really. Crying is an action verb? Write? Ok. I finally sat down and checked email. Ugh. But when I decided to reward myself and read through my favorite blogs, I came across my friend's ~ Jennifer Shirk. Somebody spank that girl, she made me cry! I always love to visit her blog because she makes me smile. Daily. Even when she's being serious. Because most of the time I can relate with what she is saying. She listed me as one of her top 5 blogs that make her think.
WOW! What an honor to know someone...one person, gets me. Whether she believes in what I'm venting about or not is not the issue. And it doesn't matter. She has an open mind and a sense of humor. They say Southern women have quirky humor. I think as long as we have a sense of humor it doesn't matter where we're from. Even during the hardest, meanest time in my life...facing Stage 4 colon cancer with my mom. She and I were cracking jokes and she was laughing at her toenail polish two days after she had come out of a two week drug-induced coma after her cancer resection surgery. The nurses were either in tears laughing or giving us dirty looks. Long story that I will share with you one day when I need an inspirational push. She was awesome. She is awesome...sorry Moms, she is still alive and running circles around me. I wonder if she'll slow down next time around if I bop her with my wineglass? Not gonna do it and waste whats left. Anyhew, there I go again. Doesn't take much nowadays...Jennifer.
She is my circle. My group that I blog with is full of funny, intelligent and creative writers. They each have their own special uniqueness that I adore. They each have their own path and views along the ride we are sharing. But Jennifer of course...she gets me. She of course will be my numero uno....Top 5 Blogs That Make Me Think.
1...Jennifer Shirk ~ Me, My Muse and I Most mornings she will share a tidbit that interests her. Sometimes it is from a favorite blog or author friend. On other occasions it may just be a joke or a funny. It always makes me smile or nod. Which also shows why she is usually one of the first places I go when online.
2...Chicki Brown What an inspiration this woman is to me. She is a bottomless well of cool information. Just today she had me drooling over another man...sorry hubby, honey. Not really. Just saw some pretty eye-candy. But she always has great articles or links when any of us need a push.
3...Real Writers Don't Vacuum Another writer seeking the publishing brick road. I hadn't heard of her until I started venturing out on blogs listed on my favorite blogs...Jennifer. Cynthia Brayden-Thomas is the author and she is definitely on my list of must reads. I have read her postings and sometimes I can really relate. She has an open mind which I can appreciate but I agree with what she has said because she often looks at something from various angles.
4...Romancing the Blog This has to be one of my favorite because there are so many different issues discussed. Even if a particular author is venting it is interesting. Why? Because I love to see other angles. Different views. I like to explore.
5...Debora Dennis-Mills And last but not least... an author I also met thru Ms. Jennifer. I enjoy her posts and they often have me thinking about the incredible writer's life. It's another one that has me nodding.
Thank you Jennifer for the tag. Thank you for making me think when my brain was so exhausted. I'll snatch and run with the only tiara I've ever won!
Now...if you have been tagged...
1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think,
2. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme,
3. Optional: Proudly display the 'Thinking Blogger Award' with a link to the post that you wrote.
Hope your brain won't hurt as bad as mine did. I have so many sites I enjoy visiting that it was hard to choose. Right off the bat I would've chosen all the girls from my circle. Have a great hump day...
