I’ve been shadily mentioning being busy. And then secretly tweeting and facebooking about it but not actually posting about it here.
I’m shy, emotional, and oversensitive. Okay, I’m not shy. But the rest? TOTALLY TRUE.
I am a BlogHer Voices of the Year in two categories! Find me under Life and Op-Ed along with some truly amazing bloggers. Honestly, I was told Thursday night via email but was not allowed to announce it until Monday (something about giving other finalists ulcers blah blah blah). But I will let you in on a secret…
One sentence they wrote: [You’re] our one duplicate finalist, to be honest.
My reply: I don’t know if I could jump up and down anymore without waking the kids.
And then they took it back. Because there’s not a category for lame.
I’m also wasting my time as the content manager for the Blogger Body Calendar. It’s a redefine-sexy calendar to promote positive body image and the proceeds go to the National Eating Disorder Association.
If you want to get involved, please go here or if you want to blog about your love of the junk in your trunk email me as Queen of the Blog, Twitter and Facebook accounts (which is what I should’ve demanded my title be).
And I’m Ms. November in the calendar. Thanks to photographer Katie Stoops for agreeing to help me get my sexy on without getting someone else’s sexy on. (Translation because it’s late and that last sentence only made sense in my head = I want to be proud of my body in an Alex-way not a trying-to-be-someone-else’s-version-of-sexy-way)
So although Late Enough comes before everything except my family (hahaha… wait, that wasn’t a joke), if I’m slower than usual to respond, please know that it’s not because I’m not in love with you anymore. Because my love for you is like caffeine. It’s MAGICAL BLOGGY LOVE.
Speaking of love, THANK YOU for making a socially awkward mama brave enough to put her writing (and more) out there. You make me jump up and down all the time. Seriously.
