VIVI AWARDS, Best Family Journal

This Dust Bunny is absolutely ecstatic!  I'm still a bit in shock that this journal, MY journal, was chosen by my fellow journalers to be the Best Family Journal.  What were you people thinking!  Over the past few weeks I had been walking on air just to be nominated.  I have read the other blogs I was running against, and they are all wonderful.  How could I, with my Cronic Procrastination Disorder (CPD), and, well, my Disorder Disorder (DD), ever hope to compete with them?  It was an honor just being in the same category as they were.  To come out the winner just blows me away.

To everyone who voted for me, to my readers who tolerate my Jeckyll and Hyde posts, to everyone who made this possible, Thank you!  For those who didn't turn away in disgust by my lifestyle, to everyone who offered their support during my moments of weakness, for those who have encouraged my dreams, thank you so very much.  Then, of course, my Oompa Loompa, the source of my joy, frustration, and the stars of most of my posts... thank you for not being too embarassed to introduce me to your friends.

And finally, to poor Dickidoo who actually has to live with me and who does so with such resigned tolerance, you can pretty much kiss any hopes of ever having a clean and orderly house goodbye.  I'm the new June Cleaver, the next Carol Brady.  Step aside Martha Stewart, here come the Dust Bunnies!

Congratulations on your well-deserved reward.

Thank you for all the laughs, tears and helpful tips.  I still end my fortunes and horoscopes with 'in bed'.  LMAO!!!

You're the best.

I think you won because so many of us suffer from your CPD and DD, so we can relate.  You are the only one honest enough to write about them, lol.  Congrats on an honor well deserved.

Blessings!~

I'm so happy for you Dorn, I was literally ecstatic when I found out!  Congratulations, it was well deserved!

I'm going to tell you the same thing I told Pamela. You have this thing that makes stories about strong coffee and toilet paper interesting to read. It's called A Voice. Yours is authoritative, and Lord knows not many people can speak on the topic of toilet paper and passing gas in a truck with authority the way you can. As long as you keep writing, I'll keep reading.
