Okay, #1-done    #2- gonna do that little thing right now.

I have been a life long slob.  And I was SICK of it!  I’d been reading cleaning, organizing, and purging blogs.  Kristen, from RoadtoDomestication was the first one I read, since she’s a personal friend.

It is great!  But, she’s naturally organized, and I’m not, so nothing changed.  Then I found Nony, from ASlobComesClean.

And she’s a self admitted slob!  I had found my people!!

So, I determined to take control of my life, one dust bunny at a time.  I started my blog Aug. was a year ago.  Everyday I’d do something, no matter how small, and document it in writing, and pix.  My first post, First Day, was the beginning.

me big girl

Me at 344 lbs. Yep, I was a BIG girl!

Now I’m an experienced blogger with a lot less junk in my life, who has improved health, as well.  My life is so satisfying now.

#3, Advice.

Hmmm, I don’t really feel qualified to give advice, just tell you what worked for me.  Figure out what you want to say.  It has to be important to you, or you’ll lose interest.  Then, start saying it!!  And proofread, proofread, proofread!  I re-read my posts multiple times before I publish, and still mistakes make it thru.  That’s so embarrassing for a Grammar Nazi!!!

#4, 15 other blogs.  That I can do easily!  I know so many wonderful bloggers, just choosing 15 will be the hard part!

sunshine blogger award

Thanks, InspiringMax!

The Rules:

  •  Thank the person/people who nominated you
  • Answer the eleven questions from your nominator(s)
  • Nominate eleven other bloggers and give them eleven questions to answer.

Questions given to me:

  1. Where is your favorite place you have lived?

Plant City, Fl.  I was born there, and will always consider it home, because both my Granny, and my Grandma, lived there till they died.

 

strawberry

Plant City, FL The Winter Strawberry Capital of the World

 

 

If you could change one thing what would it be?

This is hard.  Before March, I would have said my weight.  Before a year ago August, I would have said my slobbishness.  Before June, I would have said owning my own home.  Now, hmmmm, I would change America back to a Christian country.

What is your favorite childhood memory?

My Mama hugging me.

What is your dream job?

Being a proofreader.  And now I get to do that every time I write a post! Yay!  I just don’t get paid. 😦

What was your best subject at school?

Reading.  Wonder why???

4 journals

4 of 6 journals

 

 

Do you prefer to live in the country or the city?

Oh, definitely country-ish.  I don’t want to live in the middle of a million people, but I don’t want to have to drive 5 miles to even get to the road, either!  I like exactly where I am.  And that’s a nice place to be!

If you were stranded on a desert island which celebrity would you take with you?

A celebrity?  Hmmm, maybe Tim Tebow, so we could talk about Jesus.

 

Everyone has a song that makes them want to dance, what is yours?

Everybody Get Up and Dance Now!

Favorite colour?

I’ll let my readers answer this one. Y’all know it!

make all things purple

YES!! Please!!

 

 

Do you prefer camping, caravaning or staying in motels?

Motels, by a landslide.  I hated camping as a kid.  My brother would run his finger along the canvas right on top of my head.  Yuck!!  Drip, drip.  He invented water boarding!

How many different careers have you had?

Umm, not paying ones?  Or only counting when I got paid?  Non paying; about 15.  (babysitter for my siblings, piano player at church, professional serial dater in college, clown, Grammar Nazi, etc.)  Paying: only about 7.  (retail sales, McDonald’s, transport for hospital, teacher, sub teacher, mentor/tutor, call center.  Oh yeah, 8- my 2 day career as a nanny.  54 is TOO OLD to watch 3 in diapers!!)
