Honestly

Honestly isn’t just a Stryper song. I have been nominated for the Honest Scrap Award by my blogger buddy, Christy. “Scrap means left over, discarded material. Many times truth and honesty are discarded material, considered fragments and left over. This award is for people that tell it like it is, and let the scraps fall where they will. There are 2 guidelines for receiving this award. One, you are to list 10 honest things about yourself. Make them interesting, even if you have to dig deep. Two, present the award to other bloggers.”
Ten honest things about me are –
1. I am an honest person, but sometimes I say nothing instead of telling it like it is to avoid conflict.
2. I’ve cried every day since my dog died.
3. Before I go to bed at night, I have to put my hand on my kids’ backs to make sure they are breathing.
4. No matter where I go or for how long for vacation, I am always glad to return home. I am a major homebody.
5. I have a stack of magazines two feet high that I still haven’t read and have to go through.
6. I know I am overprotective of my children and that I need to let up. But I hover anyway.
7. My husband and I have had our fair share of medical tests and procedures with my daughter (one being she had her kidney removed last year). We take her to specialists throughout the year. She’s one tough little girl.
8. My husband drives me crazy sometimes, but I’m crazy about him :0). I suppose that could go for my three children, too!
9. I had a cookie for breakfast today.
10. I think I’m addicted to Facebook.

There you have it. I tag Shelby, Kim, Adrienne, Ann and Samantha .

Great answers, Kelly. And major, major (((((HUGS))))) for #2 with your dog. I know how you feel.

That's quite touching...

Now go read those magazines!

This is great ~ and I'll be posting this, too! I'm alot like you... I lie by omission (rather than fabrication, I guess???); love to come home again; and have watched enough golf, thanks to my hubbie, for a lifetime -- but, then again, he's probably sick of Fox news...

: )

Kelly said...

Thank you, Rena!
Douglas, thank you, and I tag you as well, I'd love to read your 10 things!
GGirl- Looking forward to reading your 10, too!

Thanks for sharing these things. I love #3. I do something similar, I put my hands on my kids' chests or underneath their noses to make sure they're breathing when they're sleeping.

You're the greatest, Kelly!

I remember one night, when the kids were little, having my husband hold a mirror underneath Jake's nose to make sure he was breathing - I'm a worry-wart, can't help it.

I belong to the Thumper Club too. You know, from Bambi: "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all." Mom raised me that way - we seem to have a lot in common - maybe all writers do.

So sorry about your dog. Mindy Alyse from the blueboards just lost her husky recently too - ahhhh... it's always hard losing loved ones.

And, thanks for the tag - I think;)

adrienne said...

Great list - It was a long time before I stopped doing #3...but I still have to peek at them or I can't fall asleep!
I eat pie for breakfast sometimes :)
Thanks for the tag - I may have to save it for after the holidays...

Hugs...

Great list Kelly! Sorry to hear about your dog. (((hugs)))

I hope all is well with your daughter. We may have to e-mail and talk Kidneys sometime. I still have a lot to learn.
