My apologies & a surprising nomination (Versatile Blogger Award)

I know it’s been a few days since I’ve been on here but real life has been a complete roller coaster.  My oldest cat, my 18 yr old baby, got an abscess under his chin last week & it got out of hand almost before I had time to get him to the vet.  It was bad enough so that me & my kid were starting to mentally prepare ourselves to have to put him under.  But thankfully, it was just a simple 1 & not a tooth abscess so no dental surgery which means now, after a week of antibiotics, he seems to be doing as good as ever.  So I was concentrating on that, plus was having issues with my weight loss (tho I have managed to lose 16 lbs so far), & then work, so haven’t had alot of time to do much more than just watch TV or read & veg out the last week or 2.  Only thing I’ve done is get overexcited about the next WoW expansion & couldn’t do much with that since it won’t be released for probably close to a year. *laughs*

Imagine my surprise tho when I got a comment the other day that I’d been nominated for a Versatile Blogger’s Award by Phoenix (who by the way has her own awesome blog just follow the link in her name there).  I’ve had to put off the thank you for a few days because of RL so now…here I am…giving her a huge thank you for something I never imagined being nominated for & to nominate some of my favorite bloggers out there.  Plus give her the 7 facts about myself that go along with the nomination.  So here go those first.

  1. I have 4 babies…a now teenager & 3 cats ranging from the ages of 4 to 18.
  2. I eat chicken & noodles with my best friend every single week on the day we catch up on our favorite TV shows.
  3. I play entirely too much WoW & enjoy every single minute of it.
  4. I have turned into my mom in all the good ways & none of the bad ways…at least that I myself can tell so far.
  5. The only romance novels I have ever really loved…since normally I read lots of horror instead…are by Marlene Suson…I can’t read them enough times because they’re awesome every time I reread them.
  6. I love boybands…no matter how old I get.
  7. I have been in SecondLife for 6 years & still can’t quite get away from it because I now raise breedable kitties on there…as well as play greedy with my friends from time to time.

Ok…there’s the facts…now onto the blogs I’d like to nominate…tho in no particular order.

  1. http://fabfree.wordpress.com/ Lots of awesome free & cheap things in SL that are of great quality & a fun way to find new stores as well.
  2. http://awesomeashild.com/ Great source of interesting food facts with a good dish of humor & down to earthness…an enjoyable & awesome blogger.
  3. http://thejigglybits.com/ 1 of the first nonWoW blogs I followed & I love every bit of it.  So funny & to the point you can’t help but giggle as you read.

  11. http://submissivenightowl.wordpress.com/ Found her blog thru another blog I follow & am glad I did.  She writes about so many things that are close enough to what’s going on with me at times that I love having another point of view on things I’ve often wondered myself.  Totally love reading each & every post & love being along for the ride as she progresses thru her life.
  12. http://phoenixasubbie.wordpress.com/ The person who nominated me & who is 1 of the most amazing people I’ve ever had the good fortune of meeting…even if it’s only virtually.  Her ability to put her feelings into words where anyone can understand them is amazing & she is 1 of the most inspiring people I’ve met in a long time because no matter what happens she picks herself up & moves on.
