I would like to thank my friend Heidi, who is a sparkling star of Blog brilliance for the following award, which was given on a particularly good day for receiving awards, since I had started reading a book that made me cry three times already.
This was my very first blog award, and it might have made me cry also, if I hadn't already been crying for joy over the fact that I had just found out that Alex was coming home that night, rather than the next night as previously planned in his work schedule. It's been a very emotional week, actually. I'm pretty sure I have reached the threshold of the glorious weepy and uncomfortable third trimester.
To add to the list of happy things that happened during my emotional afternoon yesterday, my friend Elizabeth brought some yummy cranberry bread roll stuff over. And that was serendipitous because I would like to give her with this self-same award, because the treat made my day, and all her mouthwatering posts make my days, too.
I would also like to give the award to my friend the childless housewife, whose posts always make me laugh. I also feel that her vocabulary is at genius level, thus meriting the award, whereas my blog vocab was at high school level last time I checked. That's got to be good for something.
And last but not least, my dear sisters-in-law of Tilby Tales and Susan Vilate fame, who also make me laugh. It is unfortunate that one is married to a famous rock star/fabulous musician, or else she wouldn't have to have her blog be private. (Actually, I'm just assuming there. It could also be because she is so beautiful and talented and doesn't want everyone who comes by her blog to start stalking her. Or because her son is so cute and she doesn't want him to start getting recognized on the streets as a child superstar.) Anyhow, you can check out Susan Vilate, who currently reaps the benefits of the same English program I took over at our local High School.
Heidi would be at the top of this list, too, if she hadn't already received this prestigious award. I once again offer my sincere gratitude. And now, I must away to help my small child with her wheelbarrow. A mother's work is never done.
