Jumping back in with both feet

I am currently trying to wind down so that I might get some sleep tonight - tomorrow is my first day back at work in about a week. The antibiotics and steroids are taking care of the infection, now I just wish this horrible, nasty Mucinex would take care of the congestion. I'm ready to go back and all, I just wish it was a mid shift instead of in the morning. I HATE waking up in the morning, especially when it's cold.

But I'll take care of that with a nice cup of coffee in my travel cup. Homemade skinny sea-salted caramel mocha, of course :)

So today's subject for coffee chat is awards. I do love awards! I like to watch everything from the MTV Movie Awards to the Golden Globes to the Scream Awards. Especially the Scream Awards! And I love reading about the Razzies, too. Just don't ever expect me to care that much about the Oscars. I know it's one of the most prestigious accolades an actor can receive, but aside from a small number of exceptions, I find the whole thing way too serious and pretentious.

Oh, yeah.....so the topic is awards. Have I ever received any? I almost said no, but in fact, I HAVE! This here blog, in its several different lives and me, as a blogger, have been awarded a few titles over the years:

  • Rockin' Girl Blogger Award
  • Bad Ass Blog Award
  • The Versatile Blogger Award
  • One Lovely Blog Award
Sadly, not all the awards I've been given in blogdom are listed, and even more sadly, I do not have an actual awards page anymore because those are the four that I actually had still sitting around in my photobucket account - so I *KNOW* I had those.

Oh - we have to give an acceptance speech as well? I am not so good with those, so mine will be short and to the point: Thank you to anyone who has ever thought enough of me or my blog to give me an award. I appreciate that from the bottom of my heart, and really get a kick out of it, though I am terrible at actually blogging about them and passing them along like I am supposed to.

That doesn't mean I wouldn't love more awards some day (wink wink, nudge, nudge!), just don't be surprised when a week or two passes and I haven't blogged about the award, and/or haven't passed it along.

So....on this cold, cold Tuesday, why don't you tell me all about the various awards you've received? Not necessarily blog awards, just anything!

As for coffee chat?



Since I am day-shifting today, I will head out sometime tomorrow evening to chat with you all. See you then! In the meantime, head over to Coffee Chat and link up or look around!

  3. I hope your feeling better soon. I actually kind of miss working on the days that I am sick -- because I could have booked a sick day then. stay at home moms can't book a sick day. blah!
    I used to be really good at blogging about and passing on those bloggy awards, but I have slacked off a bit too. Which is not very nice of me since someone took the time to give it to me. (bad blogger, someone should spank me! wink, wink. LOL)
    thanks for chatting even though you are feeling under the weather. :)

    1. This is true; SAHMS never get to call out. That's a shame. By the time I was in my SAHM phase, my kids were in school so it wasn't so bad. It's totally different being sick and having to continue taking care of everyone!

    1. I was back at work today. I'm still dragging a little bit, but that's to be expected. I feel much, MUCH better than I did.

      And yes, any award is a good award. Thank you for stopping by!

    1. Thanks! Work was tiring, but I knew it would be. The congestion is hopefully on the way out. I still have it, but it doesn't seem as bad.

      Thank you for coming by!

  6. The only award the comes to mind was a D.A.R.E. award when I was in 5th grade. :) I think I even got my picture taken with McGruff too at the awards ceremony.

    1. That's so awesome! I was so excited when my sons completed D.A.R.E. they got a skating party and the parents got to come, too!

      I loved McGruff; it would have been awesome to get a picture taken with him!

  7. I think you enter cool blog status after receiving at least one award. But you've had several...so you must be super cool, right?! :) P.S. Hope you feel better soon too!
