I have to tell you that the very AWE-SUMMM Karie of One Fish, Two Fish, Three, Four, Five Fish is the one who bestowed this amazing award on me. I have just recently 'met' her through Twitter. I sent her a tweet telling her that I HAD to meet her because I have seen her all over the same social groups I'm involved in and I LOVE-LOVE-LOVE that her username is 'Karie with a K.' I can so relate - I have to tell EVERYONE that my name is Karrie with a 'K." And then usually I have to spell it out. Her name is just slightly different than mine - but we're two peas in a pod. Anywho.. She tweeted me back and voila.. here we are.
To accept this AWE - SUM award and pass the award onto others I must list 7 awesome things about myself and then list 7 awesome people that I would like to pass the award on to. So here goes, I am AWE-SUM:
1.) I moved my family and put my (newly built) house up for sale so that my autistic son could get the medical support he needs/deserves.
2.) I've devoted my career (before becoming a SAHM recently) to helping others: as a health care practitioner and then a teacher.
3.) I host 3 blogs, a social network, a talk radio show, and a craft column and still manage to wash the laundry, buy the groceries, eradicate my house of dust bunnies, and cook some dinner.
4.) I can knit socks! I mean really - how AWE-SUMMM is that?
5.) I name all of my pets after literary characters. So AWE-SUMMM. I even named my daughter after a literary character, Madeline.
6.) MY hubby and I are HS sweethearts. We have known each other since we were 13 and started dating when we were 15. We've been married nearly 12 years and together for a total of 20 years. And we STILL can't wait to see each other every day! That's not just AWE-SUMMM, that's amazing!
7.) I always forgive and give the benefit of the doubt. I believe everyone deserves a second chance.
I wish I could give it to ALL of the AWE-SUMMM bloggers I know - but here are my 7:
- The Ohio Girl
- Average Jane Crafter
- Bloggin' it From the 'Burbs
- The Pink Toque
- Knitnut, Karen
