Nothing but the truth...

Yay! I've been nominated for my first award!!! Thanks Emily!

The Honest Scrap Award.

Here are the rules:

1) Choose a minimum of 7 blogs that you find brilliant in content or design. 2) Show the 7 winners names and links on your blog, and leave a comment informing them that they were prized with “Honest Scrap.” Well, there’s no prize, but they can keep the nifty icon. 3) List at least 10 honest things about yourself.

I don't have 7 blogs... I'm still kind of a newbie at this. But I'll tag Frenchie at Miss Inconceivability and Amy at Babies or Not (unless she's taking a blogging break...). Of course, I have to tag Carolyn because her blog is always full of fun stuff, and Queen B because she never seems to have any trouble being honest. :) I'm enjoying the newest blog I've been reading, Fertility Now, so I'll tag that author as well. I was going to tag Caroline and Lisa but they already did it... And, hey! If you're reading and you want to share, TAG- you're it! :-)

My honest things:

1. I'd love to live in a big Victorian house in the town next door. However, Victorian houses in the town next door (especially since we'd probably need/want to renovate them) are more expensive than we can technically afford. So the honesty comes here: as uncomfortable as I feel taking money from my in-laws, I probably would if I could get one of those houses out of it...

2. I feel like I have my act together much more than my sister. However, I definitely have some jealousy around the attention she gets from my parents. (Even though I'm 33 years old!!!)

3. I feel closer to KB than I ever have to my own sister. I also feel more attached to KB's daughter than to my own nephew...

4. When III proposed to me, I panicked. I almost said no! We had only been together for six months and I was afraid that one of us would regret it if we got engaged that quickly. Luckily, I was wrong. :)

5. I am terrified that someone I know will find my blog. There is one person in particular who may travel within the same blog circles. I have contemplated deleting or password protecting certain posts just in case...

6. I am known by my friends as a very open person who they can come to with questions about sex stuff or "female issues", but I'm loathe to talk about that stuff with my family and am seen by them as "the prudish one".

7. I had a feeling we were going to have trouble getting pregnant, even though both my mom and my sister got pregnant without a problem and our infertility is currently "unexplained".

8. I think it's time to start thinking about a new career, but I am very nervous about giving up my pension and my summer vacations.

9. I think other people's dogs (even if they are cute) smell bad, and that mine smell better than others.

10. My husband, while tall and handsome, is too skinny to be considered "my type."

So there you go! More about me than you ever felt like you needed to know... ;-)

I juggle blogs with varying degrees of anonimity. Much as I like to read your blog, for example, I would be embarassed if you turned up on my doorstep. For acquaintances I only give out about a third of the blogs I write. I will never publish some of my blogs, but find them easier than the long hand diaries I used to write.
