Takin' care of business

Awards.  I got a couple.  I love awards.  I love that others love me and give me awards.  I want to eat those cupcakes in a serious way.  Now.

The first was from RM from A Day in the Life, who you'll remember sent me those fantabulous lanterns and candles.  She's also a fellow Hoosier, so double points.

 The second came from Patricia at In My Free Time, a lovely blogger who always participates in my Make it for Monday party, and leaves me very sweet comments :)

Though I love awards, I can't think of one more ding dang thing about myself that y'all haven't already heard me blab about, so I'll just link up to posts where I blabbed on before:

 Thank you girls for honoring me!  I will pass these on to:

In other news, I moved that Follower thing to the bottom of my page.  If'n you really want to stalk me, you can either go down there and sign up OR go way up there at the tippy top of the screen next to the blogger logo on the left and click 'follow'.  And just to confuse you more, you can subscribe by clicking over there to the right in my sidebar.....choose to put me in a reader or in your inbox.  Ah, don't you love choices?  I love them almost as much as awards.

Honestly, I'm enjoying my blogging much more without the numbers constantly before my low self-esteem my eyes.  I can't take it when my subcriptions drop by 45 overnight, or my Followers stay stagnant for over a week.  I just don't want to see the carnage.  I just want to write goofy things and post pretty pictures.

You are so UBER loveable....I can not stand it. :) You make me laugh and smile...and more importantly relish in the goodness of this life. :)

Thank you for the delightful award! Happiness is definitely found in your corner of the world -- which is why I always come back. :)

cindy... my daughter reminds me "we are not defined by our numbers"
When I first started my blog, I wanted my numbers to grow. Currently the numbers are growing a little to fast to suit me. I don't want to let my readers down. But alas, I am having a giveaway, and I have hardly anything to post these days. Go figure!
your blog rocks!

thanks for that...

Hey Cindy- thanks for the shout out (and for the extra 'Hoosier point' lol) I hate seeing my follwers drop, too... Although I still don't have quite the number of admirers you do! I have finally reached 100!
I'm glad the awards cheered you up!

Congratulations, you deserve the awards!!! I love your Monday link up party, I spent hours yesterday looking at almost every one and today I'll catch the ones I didn't get to yesterday...it's so much fun!!! As a follower, I don't mind being at the bottom of the page:)

Oh those stinkin' numbers. I took mine off the blog completely. It kept going up and down by one....LOL...made me crazy.

Congrats on the awards honey, you deserve 'em.

Congrats on your well deserved awards! I am on wordpress so I can't even have followers! I have no idea how many people read what I write.

Hey shweetie!
You need an effervescence award as well---for always being bubbly delightful!
I went to my blog this am to find that my viewer counter was gone. At first I was a little peeved, after all....what the heck....and then I realized it was just sick anyway and I'm better off without it.
I'm happily writing into blank space...

I quit blogging last year, and one reason I got so discouraged was that no one seemed to be following or subscribing. It is disheartening. I have come back to blogging, and this time I am not showing any numbers either. The fun thing with Typepad is that you can look at stats, and I have discovered that many are coming to my blog, even though they don't comment. I decided this time that I was writing this blog mainly for myself. Of course I am thrilled when people say nice things -- who isn't? But it is not the reason I do it.
