Wow. It’s been a long week. Going back to work after a two week hiatus really beaten me up this week. Needless to say, since Monday, I have had a hard time getting back into the groove.
I was ready for Friday. And two things started my Friday off on the right foot.
The first was when I went into Chip’s room to get him up. This was the sight that greeted me when I walked in:
How can your day possibly start off badly when you’re greeted with this cheery little face? I don’t know how long he’d been waiting there for me, posed like that, but he looked pretty comfortable. I guess he takes after his dad, who spends a lot of time waiting for mom to get ready to go.
I found my second pleasant surprise in my email inbox. Diane over at The Perfectly Imperfect Life was sweet enough to award me my first blogger award. I’m tickled!
Diane is also a working mom, with two kids and a cute tabby cat named Mr. Harry. Ironically, she refers to her kids as Thing 1 and Thing 2 (sound familiar?), so I guess great minds think alike. I’ve also been trying to do a little matchmaking for Mr. Harry and Booyah, but so far, she’s been on the fence about that.
When you get this award, you’re supposed to share 7 things about yourself, and then pass the award on to 15 other blogs you’ve recently discovered that you think are fantastic. However, since I’m a rule breaker, and I talk about myself too much anyway, I’m going to do this a little differently and pass on something cool Diane has done in one of her many DIY projects.
