and the award goes to...

My amazingly awesome muse Amber at Adventures in Amberland gave me my very first and unexpected award. Now I haven't been in the whole blog thing like everyone else cause, well basically my life isn't that exciting for the world to want to see. So I am extremely excited about someone taking notice and liking what they see enough to give me an award.

There are 4 duties to perform to accept this award:
1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded you this award
2. Share 7 things about yourself
3. Award 15 recently discovered great bloggers
4. Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award!

1 - I became a mother at the age of 20 and even though I'm 30 years old and have 3 children, I still feel like I did when I was 20. Sometimes even how I felt when I was 18-19. Not so much physically but mentally. Not that I'm immature, because even at that age I was no where near. I sometimes look at older people and hope that someday I get to be that age, but wonder if I will still feel young inside. I sure as hell hope so.

2 - My imagination doesn't have a cool down period. It is going as much as the important things in my life. Maybe that's why I have a headache everyday. I have too much information processing through my head. Between thinking about my kids, bills, our future and the imaginary gnomes that live across the street from my house, my mind doesn't seem to rest.

3 - I'm a procrastinator. I hate myself for it and scold myself daily. But yet, here I am writing on here instead of finishing the laundry or reading my book. I don't repeat the typical "I'll do it later" because.. well... I'll probably forget to do whatever "it" is later as well.

4 - I want a machine built to plug into my brain so that my brain can feed all the information to every story I have every written or will write into it. I bet you I will have not only one but many finished books. Because the short road from brain-to-fingers seems to have some glitches.

5 - Music is just as important to me as the blood that courses through my veins. If I do not listen to music everyday I will literally be a bitch. I will lash out and just be unpleasant to be around. So.. I make sure that music is on at all times. To help others of course.

6 - I have an obsessive compulsive personality. I can thank my dear "mother" for that. It's not bad, thank God. But when I become hooked on something, it consumes my mind. Even my dreams. Which makes me wake up with a headache. [I'm a mess].

7 - The one and only thing I want for myself, is a library. One of those ones that you have to climb those fun movable ladders to get to the top books. I want it to be all dark wood and old looking. ANTIQUE! That's the word. I want it to have two over sized floor to ceiling windows with those heavy drapes in a fashionable dark color. I think about that room almost everyday in perfect detail.
Maybe someday...
