I love your blog!

The news is all GLOOM! DOOM! World! Ending!

And yes--pretty much true. But let's put that aside for a moment and talk about the fact that Kimberly loves my blog. So, happy thoughts! Thank you, Kimberly.

And now I get to say which blogs I love. Which seven blogs I love, which as you can imagine is not really possible. Seventy-seven, I could do.

So here are the most recent additions to my reader, because if they've earned a spot there then I must love them. (And if you're not listed, that just means I already loved you.)

Dirt & Noise. A few good rants about Sarah Palin and I was sold.

It's Lovely! I'll Take It! Click over there. You will not regret it.

Motherhood in NYC. Marinka? Is very funny.

Nyack Backyard. Vicarious gardening!

Total Mom Haircut. She taught Martha Stewart a thing or two about blogging.

The Wink. I know, everyone already knows about Amanda, apparently except me.

And my 7th spot (since I always have to find a way to cheat on every meme) goes to all the mom bloggers participating in the Donors Choose 2008 Blogger Challenge. Thanks for supporting such a great cause!

Fine print:
  • You can put the award picture on your blog.
  • Link to the person who awarded you.
  • Nominate at least seven other blogs that you love.
  • Put up links to those blogs.
  • Leave messages with the blogs you nominated.

I will have to check out the dirt and noise. I'm kinda loving all the good Palin jokes. Who knew John McCain was such a funny guy, right? This shit is starting to remind me of that Robin Williams movie "Man of the Year."

Somehow I missed your post about donating those scissors, or I just didn't remember it... I went to donorschoose.org today looking for projects in rural Oregon, and lo, there were none. Jefferson County (where my beloved Camp Sherman is located, but not Bend) has a population of 30,000 (how's that for rural!) and they keep closing schools and libraries because they're broke. Donorschoose.org would be such a good vehicle for them... So, I found one project in Bend and I supported it, thinking that if that one teacher is successful then he'll tell everyone else & next year more people will use the site as part of their fundraising.

Funny thing (funny/sad), my kid's school is wealthy and well-funded but the school I donated to, which is maybe 5 miles from my house at most, has 45% of students qualifying for free-and-reduced.

Thank you! I'm loving your blog too and so happy I found it:)

Great! thanks for all the links! I could use some new reads... when I have time. Someone needs to invent more time for blogging.

Marinka said...

Thank you! I am so honored. I'd like to thank the academy-what?

JGH said...

Oh goodie!! I'm gonna have fun with this. Gotta give it some thought...who will I pick? THANKS!!

More blogs, aayyy! How can there be so many good ones? I thank you, although my hungry family may not!

Amanda said...

It's weird when people you know of discover you...thanks. I'll try to keep being worthy.
