Change in Plans …

June 30, 2009

Last night I loudly announced to the little audience I have at home “From tomorrow on, all the chores get completed first I start to blog.”  I made extensive plans of what chores I am to run first, which errands to be run in what order and the works. Just thinking about to-do list, I was in a dizzy! But my mind was made up – I am no longer a slave to my blog, rather the blog should be my slave. With such grandiose thoughts, I went to bed.

Day started with some of the chores in progress. I wanted to take a peep at my mail and what do I see “You have been awarded by me …. and yes the new look of your blog !!” All grandiose plans flew right then and there out out the window! So here I am, the proud owner of  award and my first award at that!! Thanks a ton*∞+1000 times LEB for the lovely award of “extremely compulsive-obsessive” award!

Unlike slaves of any other kind, the blogger slaves get awards, lots of praises, and lots of goodie things to read, know and share.  To my fellow bloggers, the ones whom I have come to love, respect and admire not just for their beautiful writings but also for sharing theit beautiful minds, I wish to award you too.

1. Just Call Me A – You never fail to pull a smile from your readers.

2. Goofy Mumma – Down to earth, sensible and practical. I would like to think I am like you but that would be a joke 😉

3. Reflections aka Nancy- the one I believe would make an awesome cartoon scriptwriter, maybe win a couple of Oscars too! 😉

4. Ordinary Guy –  His blog drips of enthusiasm, happiness and joy!

5. Just a Mother of Two aka Preeti- A lovely poetess, artist, writer, mommy and a friend for all her readers.

6. Solilo –  Parenting, social issues, sentimemt, you name it, she’s got an opinion about it!

7. Winnie the Poohi – Smart, funny and so creative! Her 55 word stories and the 3ww prompts are fantabulous!

Thank you once again LEB. And to the smart seven above, its brought me great  joy to award such gems like you!

Back to the boring old chores …  😦 I now know how Cinderella felt when the time was up! 😀

    Hey congratulations thoughtful train. Such a warm, cheery, kind blogger is throughly deserving of this award and a lot more. Forget all the chores – the sun will still rise in the east if they aren’t done. But if the thoughtful train is not chugging along merrily, now that’s a disaster. So blogging first and chores be damned
