But, I digress. You're probably wondering about the Honest Scrap Award. According to Christy's Creative Space, here is the meaning of the Scrap Award:
"Scrap means left over, fragments, discarded material. Many times truth and honesty are discarded material, considered fragments and left over. People like us need to tell it like it is, and let the scraps fall where they will. There are 2 guidelines for receiving this award. One, you are to list 10 honest things about yourself. Make them interesting, even if you have to dig deep. Two, present the award to 7 other bloggers."
I'm not the most interesting person. I had to dig deep for the "I've been 16'd", for things I'd admit to in public. But, what are a few more? Buckle up and get ready to find out ten more things about me...
1. I miss the type of days where I can snuggle up on the sofa and read books, uninterrupted, all day long. It's difficult to do this sort of thing with children in the house, so whenever this happens, I savor every word.2. My girls and I have major giggle fests. I'm talking about the kind where you laugh so hard your stomach hurts and when you finally stop, one word, one look, will set it off again. It is the best kind of silly.3. I'm usually very shy when I meet people. So, I apologize to you in advance, if I ever have the chance to meet you and end up a wallflower.4. One of the things I regret is not knowing how to reach out to a friend when her father passed away. I think we were in fifth grade. Death freaked me out and I never knew what to say or act to comfort her. For that, I am so sorry.5. When I was in elementary school, I won a Worry Wart Award. I still excel at it.
6. I haven't had a full night's sleep since my first child was born ten years ago.7. I have difficulty writing letters to friends and family because I always end up revising them. And putting them away.8. Writing is hard work. It sometimes takes me days to write the "perfect" sentence. Which makes me feel inadequate.9. I act out scenes and talk to myself when I write. I'm sure it makes for amusing conversations for anyone who happens to see me.10. I've kept an inspirational quote journal since I was a teenager. I still have it.
I'm going to nominate all of you for the Honest Scrap Award. Just because I'd love to know more about you. I know things are busy with the holidays, so if you're game for this, let me know in the comments and I'll go and read your post.
Hope you're enjoying the weekend!
