I've been remiss

I've been slacking friends. Not posting as much as I'd like to and definitely not connecting with those of you who were kind enough to mention me in your posts. Mandy is a new blogging friend I discovered who has a great sense of humour. In particular she did a post which cracked me up recently. She wrote a short letter to each day of the week...calling Monday a sneaky bitch and practically making love to Friday...check it out please! She passed on four (!!!) awards to me. Thanks Mandy, I'm speechless. I would like to give the superior scribbler award to Vivienne who should really have her own daytime talk show - she could kick Martha's butt in a second. Check out her six post series on camping! I just loved it even though I don't love camping.

And because I've given some of the other awards out in the past, I want to focus on this one that Vivienne gave me. I think it's such an important one for this blogging community. It is the super comments award. So many of you deserve this for always reading what I have to say even if your kids are older than mine, even if you don't agree with what I'm saying, even when you probably want to kick me in the shin for always going on and on and on and on about how cute I think my kid is.
Thank you to all of you for coming back. Vivienne you are one of those people and so are you Kelly, and Gerri, and Jenn, and Wendy, and Heather and Rikkij (Oh I know you don't like awards but I have to mention you:) and funnyrunner and Elizabeth Bradley and many others. Thanks for leaving your comments. I read every single one and feel lifted that you are out there and listening.

And thank you to funnyrunner for the best blog award. You crack me up too and I hope you keep sharing your quirky and fun perspective on life.

I also wanted to say thanks so much to David McMahon for including me in the post of the day a few weeks ago.

And finally, I wanted to let Kelly and Heather know that I'm sorry I haven't posted either of the memes they tagged me on. L-A-Z-Y slacker. That's my only excuse. I'm saving both of those tags for a rainy day when I don't have anything to rant about or am tired of talking about my kid (okay that may be a cold day in...).
Thanks to all of you for keeping me in the loop of your lives and for reading what's going on in mine!

  7. Congrats, Kim, on your awards!!!

    Don't feel too bad, I slacked all summer and now I'm having trouble getting my blogging momentum going again...

  8. Congratulations, my dear friend Kim!! Everyone out here in bloggyland loves you :) Thanks so much for giving me this cool award. You know how I love to comment on your posts. They are always enlightening, inspiring and often hilarious!! Your blog is really such a nice place to visit. Now if only I could visit Canada one day... :)

  9. Aww, thanks for the love sent back my way. I'm just so glad I found you. I think it was because of Kelly (septembermom) - I found her through some blog hopping and then clicked on her blog roll and discovered you as well. Like she said, your posts are uplifting, funny and a delight to read. I'm so happy to be your bloggy friend.

  10. Kim, congratulations on all of your awards. You are so special...and I think these awards help you see that a bit. Thanks for acknowledging me, I truly have been blessed by your friendship as well. :)
