Blog Award

A big thank you to Mary at Being a Winner By Being a Loser and Sparkler at Sparkler's Story for bestowing upon me The Versatile Blogger Award.

Here are the rules for this award:

1.Thank the person giving the award.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Nominate 15 newly discovered blogs.
4. Let your nominees know about the award.

7 Things about me:

1. I have spent a total of 14 days with my father in my entire life. I flew 8 hours to get there twice as a young teen. I wouldn't know him from Adam, but I do have a decent relationship with my half-sister (his other daughter). I am always surprised to find how jealous I can feel. It hit hard when I got her wedding pictures. Nobody paid for a wedding for me and I certainly wasn't escorted down an aisle.
2. This year I will have been married to my hero for 9 years. We have a 14 year old son. There is some discrepancy with those numbers, but I promise the missing years were for the best.
3. I am the oldest of five children. I can't remember a time when I wasn't in the role of parent.
4. I am a Gemini and I fit the description quite well. Sometimes I wonder if I have two people living in this brain because I am very interested in so many seemingly opposite things. Oddly enough, I don't read horoscopes.
5. The only sport I care to watch is Rugby. I tried my hand at playing mid-field back, but I'm not gifted in sports. I ended up with broken toes from getting cleated in a scrum.
6. I am adept at a broad spectrum of tasks, but I don't have an area of interest that I excel in. Might be why I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up...
7. I took Spanish, French, German and Russian in school. I can count to 10, say please and thank you. I can also say "For Christmas I'd like a hedgehog." in Russian. I wish I had stuck with one thing instead of ending up unable to converse in any language other than American English and pantomime.

Here are 15 Blogs I'm nominating:
1. Colleen @ This Time I Mean It
2. Blossom @ Blossom Banded
6. Ashli @ Skinny Tastes Better - (hopes she'll start posting again)
11. Terri @ I Can Do This
14. Mallen @ Banded for Life
15. YOU! That's right, I mean you! If you're reading this and don't already have this award take it and follow it's rules.
