So here is the deal, readers…I’ve missed you. Since my last post I have been MIA. My boss, Ruby, quit. PRAISE EVERYTHING HOLY!! However, due to this fortunate yet untimely change, my life has been pushed into overdrive, and I have had absolutely no time to do anything with my blog except take two seconds to look, sigh, and move on to my next task for the day. I am the only one to cover the entirety of this office. Can you say stress?? We are interviewing for a replacement, but until we hire someone I am sad to say I won’t be posting daily. However, by some blessing today I noticed I had a comment. It was from znjavid, a wonderful writer, mother, and now friend who I owe my first award too. She has nominated me for the Liebster Award. Basically, the Liebster Award is a “favorite blog award”, as Liebster is the German word for favorite, beloved, or dearest. It is meant for smaller blogs with less than two hundred followers to help expose them to the world and help them discover other new and upcoming bloggers. Thank you girl! You rock!!

I will ignore my guilty conscience and voices yelling at me telling me I don’t have enough time to do this and get my ass back to work, and enjoy for a couple of minutes the triumph I deserve.

In order to formally accept this award, the nominee must do several things

  1. Link back and recognize the blogger who nominated me.
  2. Answer ten questions given to me by the blogger who nominated me.
  3. Nominate ten other bloggers for the award.
  4. Create ten questions for my nominees to answer.
  5. Notify my nominees.

Here are my ten questions to answer:

  1. What is your blog about?

I’m still fairly new at the blogging, and I haven’t decided what my blog will be about except that it is whatever I want it to be that day. I want to be able to “say anything.”
