Today, Off Duty Mom made my day. She nominated me for:
Versatile-definition via the free dictionary…am I? really? let’s see….
|ver·sa·tile http://img.tfd.com/m/sound.swf (vûrs-tl, -tl)
1. Capable of doing many things competently. I would say yes. I am a multi-tasker and can generally do it well….or fake it enough that you THINK I am competent. (though my friend at work and I have a running joke on our incompetence..)
2. Having varied uses or serving many functions: “The most versatile of vegetables is the tomato” (Craig Claiborne). Cook. Dishwasher. Personal shopper. Secretary. Volunteer. Laundress. Maid. Nurse. Taxi driver. Teacher. Wife. Friend. Mom. Photographer. Sorta-writer. Full-time worker bee. Personal Trainer. Holy cow, no wonder I’m perpetually exhausted!
3. Variable or inconstant; changeable: a versatile temperament. Yes. I’m completely inconstant. Versatile temperament, check! I’m sure my kids can attest to my head spinning abilities. Especially when they have a project due this a.m. and forgot to print it last night. And I can love up on them like no one’s business. My favorite is in Mass…my 14 year old hates it…
4. Biology Capable of moving freely in all directions, as the antenna of an insect, the toe of an owl, or the loosely attached anther of a flower. This is a fail. I’m not so loosey goosey. I taught aerobics, but I’m more of an “Elaine” dancer for you Seinfeld fans.
Now. Having never received any type of blogging award, I had to check it out and see what the heck this is. Never mind that someone not only commented on my blog (LOVE comments!), but liked it enough to give me a shout out; I was blown away.
In a nutshell…. it’s a nice way to recognize some of your favorite bloggers and to let them know in a VERY public manner that they ROCK! Wow. Thank you, Off Duty Mom! I enjoy your blog and look forward to your boy’s clothing store opening to broaden the fashion horizons of little dudes everywhere!!
There are some rules and such that go along with this award and I will just cut and paste from Off Duty Mom:
“if you find yourself nominated, you’ve been awarded The Versatile Blogger award. And then, you need to pay it forward” by
Here are my top 15 blogs that I consider versatile in one manner or another:
And now for the 7 things about myself that I probably haven’t already blogged about…hmmmm:
Have a great day!!
