Love from Gina

My friend Gina gave me a blog award a few days ago, but I've been avoiding accepting the award because I am trying to brainstorm SEVEN things you might not know about me.

Ha. SEVEN?! Don't y'all already know everything? 

Before we get into all that, I must get the fine print out of the way. Here are the rules: 
1. Thank the person who gave this to you!
2. Copy the logo and place it in your blog!
3. Link the person who nominated you!
4. Name 7 things about yourself that no one would really know.
5. Nominate 7 Kreativ Bloggers.
6. Post links to the 7 blogs you nominate.
7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know you nominated them!

So, thank you Gina for my Kreativ Blogger award.

Here are my seven things:
1. I used to work overnights as a TV news producer from 10pm until 7am. Then I came home and tried to sleep from 8am to 5pm. This was extremely difficult for me. In order to fall asleep, I would write The Lord's Prayer in cursive in my head. And then I would sing Jewel's song "Hands" to myself. And then I would type sentences on a mental keyboard and practice typing. Sometimes I still employ these tricks to sleep, although it's MUCH easier to sleep now because I have little kids in the house who wear me out all day.
2. I have a pair of Billy Bob Teeth that I love to wear. Dan hates them, so I don't bring them out often. And the last time I did, it made Katie cry. Guess I'll have to wait a while to try them again.
3. My favorite magazine is Family Fun. My sister gave me a gift subscription when Katie was born, and I thought it wouldn't appeal much to me. WRONG. I love it. When it arrives in the mail, I read it from cover to cover almost immediately.
4. Every single day, my afternoon snack is a Fiber One bar and a 10 calorie Vitamin Water. I'm addicted to it. I love it almost as much as Coke, although nothing compares with a fully-leaded Coke as it burns down my throat first thing in the morning. I try to limit that as much as I can, but indulge once in a while.
5. Sometimes I turn up the radio really loudly to drown out Jackson's temper tantrums in the car. I feel awful for that. My new trick lately is to pull over when he starts throwing a fit and kicking the back of my seat. I stop the car, get out, and just stand outside in the silence until he calms down. It usually throws him for a loop and he stops pretty quickly.
6. I am really starting to hate my handwriting. It actually hurts to write more than a few sentences anymore. I think that's because of my lupus and also because I just don't write as much because I prefer to type instead. I am bummed that my handwriting is so awful, because I really do enjoy sending handwritten cards to people. I have a reminder on my Outlook calendar every month to sit down and send cards to certain people. I LOVE getting mail, so I try to brighten other people's days by sending it to them.
7. I have no idea exactly WHAT is a Kreativ Blogger. (And Googling it didn't help answer my questions.) And why is it spelled with a K? And not an E at the end? I have a silly pet peeve: deliberate misspellings really annoy me. I know that's because I'm anal retentive and all. But still.

DUDE. That was so boring, wasn't it? Yikes.

Now here are the seven blogs I am nominating as Kreativ Bloggers. The first link is still actively blogging, but the last six are friends who haven't posted in a while. I'm hoping this will give them a swift kick in the tush and get them back online again! 
Juggling Our Way Through Life
AbFab Geek
The Mind of L4H
Catrina's Thoughts from the Fire
Are You There God, It's Me Brina
