It’s Saturday night, date night at my house. I just finished baking for tomorrow and cleaning the house and getting the kids ready for bed, all while trying to be sexy for date night, as if I have to try to persuade my husband. Anyway, I had to post this because I slacked off the last time I was nominated for an award.
So, another lovely, much more talented than myself blogger nominated my bitter, sarcastic musings for an award. I am so grateful and so surprised. Thank you Tric, for the nomination. I love your blog, My Thoughts on a Page, please keep up the great work.
In true slacker fashion, I never finished nominating other bloggers from my last award, so I am going to nominate everyone in this blog.
So, in no particular order, please check out the following blogs that I have decided that I love and must check in on a few times a week.
Don of All Trades-I’ve nominated him before, but I have to say again, that he is really an exceptionally funny guy and I am a firm believer in laughter being the best medicine. Who doesn’t need a laugh?
The Results May Vary- this is a new favorite of mine. Parenting stories and observations from the male perspective
50 Plus and Loving Life- I follow her for her comedic posts
Broken Condoms- She should be followed for the name of her blog alone
I’ll Call It Like I See It-and she does.
Things Could Be Worse-another blog I go to for a laugh. pictures are really worth a thousand words
I’m Fine, But My Mommy Has Issues- Just watch the slide show dedicated to her daughter. Her brutal honesty is refreshing
Normal is the New Boring- This is a story of a woman’s experience with her exceptional son
Motherhood is Not for Sissies- and truth be told, it isn’t
Mancakes-this woman is just awesome. I have nominated her before and I think she is a famous blogger, but check her out. her blog is smart and funny.
Whiny Baby-fresh thoughts from a young married school teacher
Special Little People-Aromatherapy for children
Mabe, With Love-love her crafts
No Ono O Pono- an inspiring blog written by a woman surviving with cancer
Living with ADHD–for obvious reasons, I follow this one. He is a young adult with ADHD and he is very honest about his trials and tribulations with it
11 RANDOM FACTS ABOUT ME THAT I DIDN’T DISCLOSE LAST TIME
1- I’ve slept with everyone I ever made out with, minus two guys
2- As whorey as that last one made me sound, I can still count on one hand how many people I did the deed with
3- I over decorate my house for every holiday. Like a freak
4-I took liam’s adhd medicine for a week before he started it because I wanted to see what kind of effect it would have on him
5-I hate feet
6-I think penises are ridiculous looking lol. I can’t even say it without laughing
7- I am terrified of horror movies
8-I don’t drink beer because after two I would have to be rolled out of the room and I would never get drunk from two beers and that is the whole point of having a drink in the first place
9-I swam laps when I was pregnant with my son until two weeks before he was born. I only stopped because I swallowed water and threw up in the pool
10- I knew I was going to marry my husband after a month of dating
11-when I am sick, I still want my mommy
I follow a lot of blogs written by parents that are realistic. I want to hear about other people’s normal, human struggles with their kids, not that I want people to struggle, but I can’t relate to people who talk like the sun shines out of their kids ass 24/7. Of course, I love my children and there are days when I truly believe the sun rises and sets out of the crack of their asses, but there are days when they are little, manipulative mother effers and other days when they act as smart as a sack of hammers. It makes me feel like less of a failure to know that there are other people struggling through the same things.
The other half of the blogs I follow are for an escape from my reality. Sometimes it’s about the exploits of some hot, young single girl, sometimes it’s about how a retired, grandma is passing time. A lot of times it is for humor because I love to laugh. I am sorry I don’t know how to properly link back to the blogs. I even googled it and I am still doing it wrong. I suck. Please check these out, they are worth the read. And special thanks again to Trick at Mythoughtsonapage@wordpress.com for nominating me.
