Did I Do That?

Remember Erkle, that kid on TV who would break things or cause a problem then ask in the most irritating of voices, "Did I do that?"

Well, I made a mistake this morning. I woke up when I should have been leaving for a dentist appointment. Oops.

I hate getting my teeth cleaned but I did not do this on purpose. We had a huge weekend and I was exhausted! It is cloudy and therefore comfortably dark for sleeping.

The receptionist at the dentist's office gave me the opportunity to come right in...up the road a half an hour...I wonder what they would think if I came in like I am right now.
It is not pretty!

Maybe it is time to find a dentist a little closer to home....

Miss Paula has honored me with an award.
Check it out!

Thank you, Miss Paula!

The rules for receiving this award are:
1) Put the logo on your blog
2) Add a link to the person who awarded you.
3) Nominate at least 7 other blogs.
4) Add links to those blogs on yours.
5) Leave a message for your nominees on their blogs.

So I want to nominate some favorites of mine:

Given that some have already been nominated I will skip over them and nominate these fine friends:

Robin, at Bittersweet Punkin, is another homeschool mom who shares bits and pieces of her day. I love Robin's blogging generosity and friendship as she often mentions others or is caring for her blogging friends.
Deena, at Can I Be Pretty in Pink, is winning a battle against cancer. This blog is about so much more than cancer. It is the story of a woman who is strong, loving and joyful.
Terri, at Lakewood Manor, was one of the first bloggers to encourage me when I started nearly a year ago. As a school principal Terri is a busy woman. Check out her blog to see her new furry family member.
Melissa, at Elijah's Adventures just moved to Ireland. From Florida to Ireland, in one crazy day. So glad this "internet thing" works across the pond! Love seeing what you and that sweet Elijah are up to.
Bethany, at Red Yarn is one of the most talented artists I have seen. She can draw people so well. My brother who is an artist says that people are the hardest to draw. I enjoy Bethany's blog and love that we live in the same county even though I have never met her.
Gayla, at Oatmeal and Whimsey has seen a lot of change in her life this year. She is adapting. Keep writing and showing those great holiday pictures. I love how you embrace even the smallest holidays. Love it!
Lady Jane, who will have to remain Private...but... love ya! You are an inspiration and are so creative in your writings.

Thanks friends for your awesome blogs.

Looks like I might get to go along to Mom and Chelsea's riding lessons. Should be very entertaining. Since I'm obviously NOT at the dentist. So... better get ready to head off to Creekside Cottage for some good clean laughs....oops, Did I say that?
Have an awesome day!!

Thank you Becky!! I was actually reading your blog yesterday... I'm bad about leaving comments because I spend so much time reading, then I have to run before I have time to write! (or maybe I'm too wordy!). I have got to find a dentist here in Lancaster. It's not my favorite thing either... it used to be until I got TMJ. My kids have a great pediatric dentist. Hope you're having a good day! Where does your daughter ride?

I'm not *into* visiting the dentist but I do anyway - kicking and screaming. ugh. Which reminds me, I need to make an appt for teeth cleaning. double ugh.

Thank you for thinking of me so sweetly, and for bestowing (sounds so queenly, doesn't it? I'm liking that. hehe) me with this award. You're a peach, and I'm humbled.

Chelsea was blessed with 5 free riding lessons from one of her homeschool friends at Creekside Cottage in Southern Lancaster County. Lindsay is so good with the horses and is a great teacher. I highly recommend her. She is very reasonably priced, as well. If you want more info check out Creekside Cottage on my sidebar and you can send a comment to Lindsay's Mom.
My Mom is preparing to ride a burro into the Grand Canyon this September so she is taking riding lessons to make that a little more enjoyable. What a lady! I couldn't do that. I am terrified of heights.
