Tagged-as a Thinking Blogger.

What was Allison thinking? Me a thinker? I am a dreamer, a brooder, a reactor. But I am not sure about a thinker. I hope I am not too deep a thinker because my head might implode. I do think out loud a lot. I spend most of my time alone (and actually prefer it that way) so I talk to myself, the clouds, flowers, the fly on the wall-and sometimes I am luck enough to get an answer from them. And now I am rambling too. Hey, its 3 AM and thundering. The dog is freaking too (he does that instead of thinking).

Go to this blog for an explanation of this award.

The participation rules are simple: If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think, link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme.

Optional: Proudly display the 'Thinking Blogger Award' with a link to the post that you wrote.

Now I have to come up with 5 others to award this to. My first is easy.

Johanna at Jo and I "met" on the Internet in 2003 after getting scammed by Kelly on EBay. There were originally over 80 of us who lost cash but Jo and I are the only ones who really stayed in touch. She needs to start an art blog soon. Wait till you see her creations.

Malieta at This pretty lady lives just north of me here in Michigan and maybe one day I will actually see her in person as we have both shopped at the Peddler on occasion. Plus she lets me bad mouth GM management-I am a shop rat's daughter for sure (just don't let hubby who is management read this)

Mary-Beth at who did what I want to do-start a silliness blog. I send the links to everyone but never post my own. Plus I like hyphenated names! And she likes the Barenaked Ladies (my daughter says they have drunken concerts and won't go with me to one)

Maria at Whenever her emailed updates pop into my inbox-I get goosebumps! She must raid the recessed places in her head for her art-and I aspire to be as creative as she is. She does more with color than anyone I have seen and that takes thinking on the other lobe.

Dana at This crazy leftie/veggie is a "new" mom with much courage. I sometimes can't tolerate my kids (nor they me) but to take in complete strangers and make them your own is incredible. It just proves you are not a mom just because you give birth-you have to earn the title.

Each of you can now post the above icon on your blog and thank you, Allison for nominating me. It just took me a long time to get caught up as my brain has been so tired from all this extra work it's doing lately thinking about thinking.

Oh and Allison, hockey season might be closing in again but baseball, WNBA, Tiger Woods, NBA and pretty much anything not involving a piece of metal and 4 wheels or a bunch of sweaty freaks in boxing arenas keeps me jumping for the summer. My TV is permanently set to ESPN (except for the hurricane updates with Jim Cantore). Yummy.


  1. Jan, I'm honored that you tagged me as a thinker. Malieta tagged me also last week, but I felt so "un-deserving" of this award that I have been putting off blogging about it.
    I'm shocked that you think I have courage, because I don't. I am terrified of this entire expedition and often ask myself if we've done the right thing!
    Thank you again for the vote of confidence!

    Oh, and I am a "leftie" in more ways than one, so your comment shocked me until I realized you meant "hand-wise"!

  2. Thank you for this Jan, I so appreciate you thinking I deserve such an award.

    It was funny seeing that you like hyphenated names, it's a real pain sometimes. Most people don't remember it so unless I want to spend my time reminding them, I don't let it bother me. LOL

    Thank you once again!


Thank you for stopping by and sitting a spell with me and mine. I hope you take away a smile!
