I’m A Nominee!

The lovely Debb at Sunshine Factor has nominated me for the Reality Blog Award. Isn’t that sweet? She’s always supportive of my efforts and like all good things I like to pay it forward by nominating a few blogs I read regularly (listed in no particular order). If my nominees want to participate and pay it forward by all means join in!


Pearls and Prose

Francine in Retirement

Alec Nevala-Lee

From These Hills

Diatribes And Ovations


How The Cookie Crumbles

There are many other blogs I read regularly.  Some are comic review centered only.  These are the ones that inspire, make me laugh, and share their lives with us readers.

You can decide what you would like to do and please take in consideration that  there are no rules so you can follow this pattern or you can create another.

Debb passed on five questions and here are my answers :

1) If you could change something what would you change?

Generally I’m about accepting things are they are and moving toward what you want given that.  But if I could change one thing I’d feel like I did in my 20s now so I can do all this stuff I want to do, have more experience to do, time to do, and money to do.  Ahh youth is wasted on the young… so say we older folk.

2) If you could repeat an age, what age would it be?

None.  Really I’m in the best place now even with the aging thing.  I’ve worked hard to be where I am in all aspects of life.  I wouldn’t go back,  the only way is forward!

3) What one thing really scares you?

The ones I love being hurt or coming to harm that I could prevent.  I love and adore those in my life and want it all to be sunshine, rainbows, and glitter for them.  I know I can’t control what the universe dishes out so the best I hope for it that I never cause them pain.

4) What one dream have you not completed yet and do you think you will be able to complete it.

Wow.  I’d like to have a blockbuster novel.  I don’t know if I’ll get there but I’m working toward that.  In meantime I’m enjoying being creative and life along the way.

5) If you could be someone else for the day, who would you be?

Uh, nobody.  One of the biggest jobs in life for me is being comfortable in my own skin.  I want to own what I do be it successful or a failure.  I don’t want to take on another’s issues even for a day.  I’m still working on me and being the best me I can be.

I’d just like to add that if you can’t laugh in life then just fill in the following blank and be thankful that’s not you.

“It could be worse, it could be ____________!”

I’ve never not been able to fill in the blank and then be thankful for where I am!

Until next time! (WHEW! Made it through this week!)
