A City girl in rural Alaska has awarded me with my 2nd blog award. Is it bad that this excites me so much? It makes me smile when I can make others smile. And of course it also makes me smile when I am given an opportunity to talk about myself again!

I absolutely accept this award and I highly recommend that you check out A City girl in Rural Alaska. I love, love, love her blog!

On to the rules...In order to accept this blog award, I have to share with you 10 things about me. But I’m a rebel and thought I would try something different. So keeping in line with yesterday’s post, I thought I would share with you some of the things that I struggle with in my life…stick with me…it’s a good list! Hey, I just figured you would like to know that you aren’t the only one that struggles with things. Am I right?

So here ya go…

I struggle with: body image (thanks ex), single parenting, concentrating at work (I’m in an office with 12 windows looking out into a plethora of trees), judgemental people, choices I have made in my life, the idea that anyone would want to put ketchup on eggs (sorry Sheila), increasing the amount of money in my savings account, my weight, finding Mr. Right, raising my kids to be all that they can be, balance in my life, jumping on the Oprah bandwagon, reading more than two pages in a book at night before I fall asleep, keeping up with laundry, taking time for me, controlling impulse spending, saving for retirement, finding time to pursue my passions, keeping a journal (that’s why I blog), consistently exercising, eating healthy, cleaning toilets (I live in a house with three boys…need I say more), letting go of past hurts, seeing happiness in my future, trying to please everyone, standing out in a crowd, public speaking, being more active in my kids school activities, being lonely, asking for help, taking things slow, enjoying the ride, challenging myself, writing my book, staying on track, sticking with things, taking good pictures, finding a way to de-stress that really works for me, enjoying the moment, rejection, keeping my closet clean and organized, staying on top of things and last but not least, my biggest struggle of all is keeping up with all of my friends.


  1. I think you might be my sister from another mother...well, except for the ketchup...I'm with Sheila on that...oh and the reading...just ask my kids who wanted breakfast this morning while I was trying to finish my book! :)

  2. I'm surrounded by men at home, work...everywhere...all I seem to do some days is clean up pee dribbled on toilet seats!!! :-)

    Have a lot in common with you gal...

  3. Love the list - and completely agree about ketchup and eggs. I get a little queasy just thinking about it!

  4. Love the list and even share more of those struggles than I care to admit.

  5. Okay, so I'm not going to use the word amazing, but it's great how you can put your finger on the pulse of so many things that I struggle with!! I guess we're not alone!
