Rule 1: Thank and direct other bloggers to the person who gave it to you.
I received the Versatile Blogger Award from Shelly at The Life of a Novice Writer. Thank You!! Anyone who hasn't been over to her blog really must visit.
Rule 2: Tell some secrets about yourself. Seven to ten.
Secret 9: I'm a grown woman; 42 years-old, with a home and family and career.
BUT, to this day, my mama can work a southern daughter guilt trip on me without ever saying a word. And I don't know why I keep letting myself fall into that trap. I don't even know if she really means to do it anymore. Actually, I suspect sometimes she does it on purpose just to make sure she still can. But most of the time I doubt she's even aware of her power.
Secret 10: My public stance on exercise is that I get mine going up and down the stairs in my house several times a day.
BUT, privately I ruminate on being one of those cute, pony-tailed women addicted to running. Yesterday, I bought a pair of running shorts and a sports bra at Target and hid them under my bed. Please don't tell my husband. He might want me to wear them and sweat.
Rule 3: Award it to fifteen others.
