Unexpected Joy!

I'm thrilled just to have been, really! Tara at Paris Parfait nominated me at "Share the Love Blog Awards" I'm in two categories and even being nominated is an honor.

That being said, if you agree you can vote at .

In other news, the girls are all moved in with no drama for mama...woohoo! They have a house up here but out of the four only one has a job. Interviews are pending but if I'm not mistaken don't you get a job first? I was already asked to be their personal laundromat but I said no. I said try the laundromat, it worked for me as a working mom for years, but they said "eww."I don't understand why taking buses, using Laundromats and starting positions are beneath them. It's not just my kid's either if you've been watching the Today Show.

I spent my week choosing paint for the new house because Dave's sister is going to help us out by painting. A hallway, entryway,living room, kitchen, basement and dining room. I love color and was going nuts on shades but ended up with 9 different colors...eek! It will take a full week and a huge load off Dave.

Jone said...

Congrats Tammy. I will vote for you.

Terri /Tinker said...

Already cast my votes for you! Woo hoo - Congratulations!

Liza's Eyeview said...

Voted for you and Paris Parfait :)

Vedrana M. said...

great news, congratulations!!! :)

Pam said...

I already voted, you go girl!

As for the buses, laundromat and starting position thing, it's the " me" generation. There are many kids out there who think they are above earning their way and paying their dues. Good for you for standing your ground.

and I echo Pam's comment

Star said...

Yay for you! I'm heading over to vote. (ditto Pam's comment on the entitlements of today)

Nancy said...

Big Congrats and hugs to you, Tammy! I'm gonna head over to that site.
And good for you for setting realistic limits on those girls. Power to ya!

Tammy, you deserve recognition for your beautiful, inspiring blog. So glad Dave's sister is helping with the painting. As for the daughters and the laundromat, I'd say no too. They can sort themselves (and their own laundry) out! :)

Becca said...

Congratulations Tammy! Well deserved nomination ~ you are already a winner in every way, as far as I'm concerned :)

Love Ya!

oh my dear Tammy, how well deserved your nominations inspire, you make others see life as a gift...YOU are a gift!!
as for the laundromat - oh definitely....I did laundromat AND bus when I lived on my own. where there is a will, there is a way.

I am beyond SHOCKED to see my name on that list - I had NO idea until I came here. isn't life amazing?

Chris said...

Congrats! You deserve it!

Love the "nutty" squirrel:)

Have a great weekend!

Congrats, Tammy!! YAY You!!!!! Which two categories are you nominated in? If I can get my currently-flaky 'net connection to work long enough, I'll be glad to go vote for you (and for some other familiar names on your list!) but since I keep getting booted off the net, it would help speed things up if I knew where to look. :-)

PS...I saw your comment on my blog where you said I'd been nominated, but I didn't see mine on there anywhere. Maybe you saw a blog name that was similar? But if I had been, I'd have appreciated your vote, so thank you! :-)
