E is for .. Dangit! What's It For Again?

Hey y'all! I'm running behind today. A friend's daughter went to the emergency room last night about 8 and I hung out with her (and my homework), then went back to her house to sleep on the couch (her hunny out of town and two kids alone), so I'm just getting up and moving. And the snow is just coming in, so I have to grocery shop (out of EVERYTHING). I wrote this yesterday, then never got back to it. And I'll be out to y'all's blogs later, in case you see here that you won and wonder why I didn't tell you! I'm just mean that way.

Woohoo! I won another major award! Seriously, I'm running out of mantle space, people. But I'm not complaining. I feel loved.

Kidzmama, at Not a Spare Minute, has given me the E for Excellence award! I like to think of it as the E for Everyone award. Because I'm like that - I'm for everyone.

Lessee ... I'm supposed to pass this on to ten deserving bloggers. Think, think, think. Oh! I know! Dlyn at Dlynz Blog! I just love her photography. :) Hmm ... and Poltzie, at Keeping up with the Poltzes. She makes killer Polish food (or so she SAYS - and I believe her), so maybe if I award her this she'll send me a pierogie or something. Jan, over at Bold & Free, who has fantastic giveaways. Which I never win. But I don't hold that against her. It would probably help if I entered some of them, huh? Maybe if I give her this award I won't have to enter to win? Yeah, I don't think so.

To KellyJean, over at Laughing Always Helps, because she needs an award right now. Love you, KellyJean. And to Keri, at Stripey Cat Production. I just love her blog. And it looks like the Burgh Baby's Mom doesn't have an award! She REALLY needs one, since her toddler is already showing signs of teenage-hood.

I could have sworn that Karen, over at the Rocking Pony, already had one, but I can't find it anywhere! Y'all go over and read the post about the exploding diaper. Ew! Then there's Daisy, at Compost Happens, one of the first blogs on which I started reading and leaving comments.

Omigosh! That's nine! Oooo ... there are several more people I'd love to give this to, but I'll follow the rules and give just one more ... to Mir, at Woulda Coulda Shoulda. Can I do that? I just love her blog and find it most excellent.

Alright people, clear out. I have work to do and you're just getting in the way. Have to find a place for this award...

Until I write again ...

I hope your friends daughter feels better soon. And you catch up on some rest.

Marguerite said...

Congrats!

I hope all went well after y'all got home. Tell her to avoid nitrites and nitrates and mucous causing foods (milk products) for a few days.

The Sports Mama said...

Congrats!

The only reason you didn't get it from me as well is because Kidzmama had given it to you! :)

(Although now Burgh has gotten it from us both! hehehe)

Burgh Baby's Mom said...

Congratulations and thank you!

I hope everybody is doing better real quick.

Karen said...

ERs aren't fun, but I'm sure your friend appreciated the help.

Thanks so much for the award! I listed you as one of my awarders. :D

Poltzie said...

Hey my first award! Thanks Flea :)

Poltzie said...

ps. Your perogi is in the mail (ah once I figure out how to make it that is hehe).
Thanks for the Bigos recipe too, it sounds awesome and I can't wait to surprise the old Polish husband with it :)

Mir said...

Awww, thanks, Flea. And even after I totally didn't answer your mail because I got distracted by my parents or something shiny. I'm sorry! Thanks for not holding it against me. ;)

ALF said...

Came here via Melissa over at Hope for the Hopeless - just wanted to say hi! And also, congrats on your latest award!

Cecily R said...

First of all, I hope your friend's daughter feels better.

Secondly, congrats on your major award.

Thirdly, you and I have a lot of blog friends in common, so I figured I should come over. Based on this post and all the great comments I read from you, I'll be back. :)

Flea said...

Hi guys! Just a few more hours' sleep and I'll be caught up! Thanks for all the congrats and well-wishes (I'm doing my princess wave - can you see me?).

And thanks for popping in, Mir, Alf and Cecily r!

Off to photograph the snow! I wonder if Bessie and Fred have ever seen snow ...

kay said...

Daisy said...

I'm blushing. Thanks so much! Oh, yes, your little Fred and Bessie are adorable, too!

dlyn said...

Aw - thanks so much Flea! I really appreciate it and I am even more glad that you enjoy the pics and drivel :). And congrats on getting it too - you definitely deserve it. Did you show it to the cows?

Flea said...

Dlyn - when I read that question, all I could see was my Oatmeal Head, at 6 years old, holding up his birthday gifts to his beanie baby parrot, huge grin, telling the parrot all about his gifts. I'll have to show it to the cows. :)

Yay!

Hey! ;) Congrats for your excellence award.

My BFF and I are on a last min road trip and the laptop doesn't get internet but my PDA does.

Thanks for nominating me. You're so sweet.
Did u enter the contest this time? I'm not doing the drawing until late Friday afternoon.

Flea said...

Jan, I entered at the last minute, but I'm not really a Kingsbury fan. I have a good friend who is. :) Have fun with your BFF! I know you need this trip with her. :)

KIDZMAMA said...

You totally deserve your Excellent award. I'm sure the friend you helped out thinks that as well.

If those cows head outside make sure they bundle up first!
