and on to the thankyous and howwonderfuls and lilolme???

just wanted to share my lovely gorgeous slushy nightmare w/ya'll that i deal with daily. yeah. so that's 94 going north. meaning, i'm going home. in the direction of wisconsin. i'm in the far left lane. crawling!! it was terrible. so terrible ithought hey let's put it on the ol' blog. see my windsheild? yeah. SNOW on the hood. dude. so not cool.

this picture is less impressive. i know. but it was a camera phone and at night and.. and... and am i the ONLY ONE who, no matter what flippin' lane i'm in, or switch into... gets STUCK?? see the car in front of me? yeah. STOPPED. under a bridge which freaks the frick outta me. and then notice the other two lanes. yeah. if i had time to sit there and take THREE photos to make sure one came out not motion sicknessy? yeah. that means that IM NOT MOVING. and if mama ain't happy ain't nobody happy. or. something. but it sucked. so once again. i share the suckage with you, my darlings. just cuz. that's how we roll up in here. uhm. anyway.

SO. it came to my attention i believe two days ago that some peeps out there in the blogosphere great blue yonder gave me AWARDS.

and then i totally ignored them and didn't say a word.

so, so sorry little ones. it's this craptastic week i'm having. got in major trouble at work, then that escalated into what i feel was an attack and had to have head honcho intervene... just a big ol' tense and stressful coctail that i am glad to get out of !!! and so it's made blogging a bit of a challenge for me, since i refuse to put more negativity into the world by venting on here.

no. i just email my mother. (HA. sorry ma.) you have her to thank that you don't get my 7am rantingraving emails!

okay. enough blabber.

this hi-larious gun-totin' beer-swiggin' harley lady, SMB at Words of Wisdom from a Smart Mouth Broad, gave me this awesome totally rad totally NEEEETO award. it was made by GoodFatherBlog in a stance against all the 'girly frissy silly' blog awards that float around.

and i agree, dangit!! (and not just cuz i gots one either!)

so here are the rules, cuz as SMB says, there ain't no blog out there worth its salt if it ain't got rules. (i added the aint's. sounded more manly to me. i dunno. ignore me.)(but really please don't.)

1. Say one nice thing to a man in your life. i told my husband Vladenko(it's a nickname. NOT a real name. ahem.) that if he doesn't make chicken drumsticks tonight on the grill even tho it's four inches of snow and still comin' down i'm gonna be NOT happy. cuz his chicken drumsticks? i actually eat the skin. YEAH. they're THAT HARDCORE.

2. List at least six ways that you measure success in your life (or for your blog).

- if i wake up in the morning and i'm actually happy to get up
-if my husband is happy and his business is doing well
-being okay with myself, and having pride in who i am
-Losing the desire to keep up with the Jones'. (whoever they are) (stole this from SMB. cuz it's a goodie)
-giving to those who have less then you- and enjoying it
being able to buy multiple black sweaters (much to the dismay of count vladenko, who hates monotone clothing) without feeling not one twinge of guilt.

3. Assign this award to six other blogs and leave them a comment telling the blogger that you’ve assigned them this award.

okay. this is the hard part. cuz i? CANNOT DO THIS. it is SO FLIPPIN HARD for me to name people. seriously. surrrrreously and i am so not jokin here. especially since i have more awards. i don't know if this is the rules but ya'll know me i'm a WILD one and i'm just gunna break it. and i'm going to award EVERYONE on my blogroll. SO. THERE. i know a lot of you out there in the blogworld accept awards quietly and then stow them away in a lil treasure chest and don't post about them. probably bc it IS difficult, after a while, to pick people and post and link them and.. and... and it's not that i don't love all of you little bloggerini's. it's that i love you-all too much to pick teams ala gym class.

cuz i was always picked last. yeah. i know. surprising. (not.)

so this is the first award i am going to accept, and i'll do a separate posting for the other two i was awarded. (I KNOW. who was crazy enough to give this chick THREE??? pssht. nutso yo)

thank you and good night and happy sweet lovely dreams w/salsa and jalapenos and chalula on top!

Smart Mouth Broad said...

Sorry you're having a bad week. I hope it gets better soon. I'm really gettin' quite the rep between you, MLS and Nothing Fancy. ROFL @ gun-totin, beer swillin, harley...." But I guess it's pretty accurate. *sigh*

I've got something like 3 awards to acknowledge. Ugh......when will I ever have time with all this shopping I've got to do???????? ARGHHHH.....the agony!

Midlife Slices said...

One more thing. Put that cell phone down and put BOTH hands on the steering wheel, young lady. It's snowing, for Pete's sake.

o.k. I'm done now. :)

PLEASE keep both hands on the wheel when you drive.

Love You. Mom

ohmygosh. I took practically the same pic the other day as I was driving too! I need to post it on my blog... this slush/snow/rain/cold/crap is absolutely ridiculous and I am not a fan.
