I miss my kids. Or at least I did the first 10 minutes after they left for school with Roomie. Then, for the first time in 9 days, I heard it. Or rather I heard NOTHING. Yes, folks...
Silence. Sweet, delicious silence.
I could hear myself think. I could finish a thought. I could read my email without being interrupted, telling a child to keep it down, or stop an argument over which tv show should be watched.
And OMG, I realized I was ALONE! I could do naked cartwheels in my livingroom again!!! Okay, I lied. I can't do a single cartwheel to save my life.
Then, BAM! I found out that I won this lovely Sunshine Award...
Holy Geez! Will the surprises never cease?! Good grief, I hope not!!!
Thank you SO MUCH to my fellow bloggy girl Cham at eat ur banana for giving me this awesome award.
I don't get many of these anymore, so I love it when I do. And I'm such a lucky girl to get one from my lovely fellow Filipina friend!
Okay, my duties associated with this honour are as follows...
- Post 7-10 Things About Yourself.
- Choose and Tag 7 Other People/ Awardees!
- Go to Their Blogs and Tell Them You Tagged Them.
- Have Fun!
Hmmm... what 7-10 things have I not told you about myself? Well...
1: I put my hair up in a bun with a scrunchy when I go to bed at night. My hair is very wavy, and this way, my hair doesn't bug me in the middle of the night, and I wake up with bouncy, wavy hair. I just run my fingers through it in the morning, and I'm done. It's perfect because I'm
2: I love burning candles. Especially Canadian-made honey beeswax candles by Honey Candles®. Makes my house smell nice.
3: I'm going to my 25th year high school reunion this September. I can't wait to see all my old girls (I went to an all-girls high school), my favourite teachers, and my old stomping grounds. I wish I could be exciting and say I was a rebel back then, but I wasn't.
4: I have to take dance class next year because I've already bought the dance shoes. I told you I'm all backward-y.
5: After 5 years and fearing that the hole had closed up, I'm once again wearing a second earring in my left earlobe. The hole didn't close after all. I'm also wearing my earcuff again. I may not be a rebel, but I look like one... at the tender age of 42.
6: I watched The Hunger Games, and of course, I loved it! (Update April 4, 2012: I loved it so much, I watched it again. Today.) Aside from a couple of scenes from the book I believe they shouldn't have left out in the movie, it captured the feeling and mood of the book perfectly. My favourite character: Cinna.
7: At one time in my life, I had braces, glasses, and a perm ALL AT THE SAME TIME. Please. Stop drooling over that sexy image. sigh. Needless to say, I didn't get many dates that year. Especially since I went to an all-girls school. And didn't know any boys.
Okay, this award goes to...

These are my oldies with whom I've been hangin' since I started blogging in '07. I wonder if they've gotten any of these awards lately. Well, they have one now!
Thanks again, Cham, for the lovely award! You rock!
