Sometimes I’m heroic, mostly I’m just “ick”.

#Life#Social Clutz Loveable Spaz#Weght Loss and Body Image

It’s really not what you think. I’m really not off contemplating The World At Large and finding solutions to global hunger and poverty. No. I’m actually knee deep in grading and laundry and baby-nesting and am not here right now blogging. You don’t see me. See? Not here. But maybe in a week or so I will be able to breathe and have that feeling of accomplishment when I actually got something finished and remembered that I’m blessed and happy and whole. Right now I don’t feel very whole so I’m off finding wholeness while I work.

If that makes any sense at all. And if it doesn’t? Well, it’s ok because it doesn’t to me either.

I got an email today alerting me to the fact that someone nominated my very unlikely blog in The Bobs. (Someone from the Mom group, I think? I suspect as much..) Anywho, I’m not ungrateful or anything, I swear. It’s so sweet. Really, made me all warm and giddy inside like the lovely fudge brownie I fed CB an hour ago.  (YUM… Brownie…. Which is probably why I already look like this at 22 weeks… But I digress…) It’s just that I believe I’m not qualified since I have just a little over the alloted daily visitors. (I have no clue why you people come back and listen to me rant about things but I love you for it.)  And that’s ok, I think the new blogs just getting started deserve some love, too. As well as all of these blogs, no matter how big or little. So thanks, really, but please run and nominate a few other bloggers who have wonderful blogs and are amazing writers and who don’t post about their small mental breakdowns; Or if they do, it’s so beautiful and well written, you kind of want to have a mental breakdown with them.

I’m up for company if you’re in to that.


  1. I think you look fantastic.

    Thanks for the lead to the other blogs.

  9. Awwww…Mrs. Flinger.  Glad to see you poke your head in and say hi!

    (And? don’t fret that brownie…I just learned Friday at my appt. that I have already gained 15 lbs. since my first OB visit.  Um…I’m 21 weeks.  I am eating like a horse these days, and not regretting a minute of it - maybe a few seconds, but no munites!)

  12. Hope you are able to get lots done this week and feel whole again…believe me, I understand.  I should probably take a break myself this week and tackle the project that is definitely eating away at my creativity-the filing cabinet…erg.

  13. of course we all agree you deserve the Bob award and getting a nomination is a great start. Rock On!

  14. No, REALLY, it’s sweet. It is. Y’all are lovely. But I’m fairly sure I’m not qualified and, well, didn’t you see me foam at the mouth when I had to post a MeMe? I mean,  I almost had spasms from the pressure. The award gig might do me in.

  15. I hope you’re getting a lot accomplished.

    At least one of us should be. wink
