The Horror

...and some nice things.

We really know how to live it up here. We spent a wild and crazy Saturday night attempting to pull two ticks from Drew's belly. Unsuccessfully. Eurgh! It's no secret that I have severe arachnophobia, and that includes all the other nasty critters with creepy wiggly legs. I was a very brave mama holding the Drewser while Husband attempted the impossible feat, and I was bitten at least five times for it! (By Drew, not the critters!) If only Drew knew how much I love him in order to actually look at those nasty beasties. I nearly jumped out of my skin. *Shudders*
First thing Sunday morning we visited the vet, who pulled the buggers out and tested for Lyme Disease. All clear, thank goodness.

Now if I haven't already scared you away with my nasty tale, I do have something more positive to share. A "Love Ya" blog award from Aspiring Writer, Joanne. Here's a description of the award:

"These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers."

I don't feel like I deserve an award since I've been neglecting my blog lately, but I'm thankful for the acknowledgment, so this award means a lot to me. Cheers!

Like Joanne, I'm going to pass this award on to three lovely writing bloggers:

JJ over at Tea Stains has the most excellent taste in brew and is a lovely, supportive friend too. (Oh, I rhymed!)

Marmite & Tea has blogged about books for some time, but began the novel-writing journey last year and is a cheerful and enthusiastic blog chum.

I began blogging around the same time as Yvonne at It Had Better Be Good and we've been buds ever since. She recently finished the second draft of her first novel and is always an inspiration.

Love ya, ladies!

Awh Angie you're the best! I'm so touched by your words. It's been lovely sharing our writing experiences together, to many many more!

Yvonne, I went to tell you about the award, but you beat me to the comments box. :)
Cheers to many many more!

You were very brave to go through that for Drew! Glad the ticks are out with no bad effects (and that includes you:-)

Congrats on your lovely award:-)

JJ said...

Ahhhhh, thank you, sweetie. I don't know what I'd have done without you guys gently pushing, and then hugging me when it all got too much. Thank you for your lovely words and the award.

Thank you Angie, it's a lovely award. I'm very glad I "met" you :)

Glad the ticks are out!

Angie said...

Lane, it took every ounce of bravery!
Thank you. :)

JJ, you're very welcome (and I feel exactly the same way).

m&t, glad to have 'met' you too, and you're welcome.
Me too!
