From the Rooftops

Another Dreamer at An Unwanted Path has been so kind as to bestow an award upon me.  It’s the “I Will Not Be Silent About Infertility” Award.  Thanks!

awAs those who read this blog know, I have no difficulty whatsoever saying exactly what I think about infertility – at least in writing.  I have to admit, though, that I feel a little like a fraud, since I rarely discuss my infertility outside of this blog.  I would say that it is because I get so much off my chest here, I don’t have to say it elsewhere, but it’s also because I want just focus on other things outside of the computer. I like leaving my infertility here, in this little box.

Or maybe, this is yet another example of my inability to take a compliment.

So, here are the rules:

  1. Link to the post that started it all
  2. Nominate 4 others who have not been “silent about their infertility”
  3. Enjoy speaking out and speaking up 😀

My four others who have shouted from the rootops about their infertility, are:

May, Shelli, Shinejil. and Me. Go forth and shout!

I’m Having a Sally Field Moment!

Well, it’s happened again. FarmWife, that wonderful lady who still reads my blog after all this time (and still seems to like it!) has given me another award.  I was humbled the first time, now I’m just plain dumbfounded.  But, I am thankful because I love her blog so much – she is such a wonderful writer and blogger who does such a great job showing the humor in her life. 

And, I just have to say it:

“You like me, you really, really like me!”

Anyway, the award is the Arte y Pico Award and has somehow transmorgified from a very specific Portugese award for art into a general love-your-blog-creativity kind of thing (which I wouldn’t have know had FarmWife also researched the origin of said award. She is one-stop-shopping people!).  It also has a really cool picture:

Of course, what’s the point of getting an award if you can’t share it with others?  FarmWife also consolidated the rules (thank you!) and here they are:

1) Show the award. Link back to the blog that gave you the award.

2) Pick 5 blogs that you consider deserving of this award because of creativity, design, interesting material, and contributions to the blogger community, no matter of language, and link to them.

3) Leave comments on the blogs to let them know you’ve given them an award.

4) Show the link to the Arte y Pico blog , so everyone will know the origin of this award.

5) Show these rules.

So, without further ado, here are my 5, in no particular order:

Clizbiz because she unabashadly eats her young, has dined with MC Hammer, and is just an all around cool person who happens to blog about how cool she is so that we can all enjoy her adventures!

May at Nuts in May because even though I just found her blog, I have a feeling we were cut from the same snarky cloth.

Lesley because she just cracks me up and she has fabulous taste in music.  And, she has actually defended living in New Jersey.  That alone takes cajones.

Shinejil because she just finished her first IUI with injectibles cycle and she writes beautifully about so many topics.

Lori because she is all-around cool and because she still helps those of us on the journey even though she has found her family. 

Congrats to all of you!  Now, go forth and embarrass 5 more people with these riches!
