Another blog award!

Thank you to The Cable-Tied Dragonfly for this award!  I have always loved that name.  You'll see why in a minute. 

The rules of this award are to tell 7 things about yourself then thank the blogger who gave it to you.  You need to pass the award on to other deserving bloggers.

Ok 7 things about me...

1.  Like I said in the beginning, I have always loved the name of the Cable-Tied dragonfly.  This is because I have this fascination with cable ties.  I fix lots of things with them, and even have them in my desk at work.  This was very helpful on one occasion when I fixed the office toilet with one.  That fix is still in use over a year later!  When people ask me to describe my band I tell them that it is like a cable tie on the top of my stomach.  Anyone who knows me really well just laughs a bit at the irony.

2.  I am not an over motherly person.  I hate this about myself, but can't seem to change it.  Thank goodness my husband picks up the slack.  I couldn't imagine wanting to me a stay at home mom.  That unfortunately is my version of hell.

3.  I am addicted to sets.  I obsess over things if there are more pieces of a set that I don't have.  It is a sick habit especially because I don't need most of the things.  It was really bad with baby things.  I would worry if I didn't have everything that matched.  I mean EVERYTHING that was made to match.  Very expensive.

4.  My husband and I have been married twice.  We took a 3 year break from our marriage.  We are much better off this time.  We were married for 9.5 years the first time and 3.5 this time. 

5.  I am going to be a grandma this year.  I insist that I must be called MiMi as I am 35 and still not sure I can deal with the grandma thing.  I am excited and scared for my step-son though.  He has no clue what he is getting into!

6.  I don't think I was was ever happy in my life until recently.  I feel like I missed so many years!  I finally have been able to accept all that life has given me and use it all to my best advantage!  This is a wonderful feeling.

7.  Teenage boys are GROSS!  Just a thought, not so much about me but my 15 yo son never ceases to amaze me in this aspect. 

On to the nominations.

Thanks again to The Cable-Tied Dragonfly for this honor!  It always amazes me that my ramblings actually help some people.

Thanks so much for the nomination! My husband used to joke that he could have saved us a lot of money by just using a Zip-tie around my stomach...LOL

To Band or not To Band? said...

Lol Stephanie. OMG Heather I didn't realize you were going to be MiMi @ 35! I am 35 this year and still can't imagine being a Mum!!
