The Versatile Blogger Award

My Award

Yesterday afternoon was one of the busiest days I’ve had in the past 4 years. We must have seen 200 patients, and while my busier days seem to fly right by, this day was dragging quite slowly. I sat down at my desk to begin working charts when my phone notification went off. Normally I ignore it, but something told me to go ahead and check it. I’m most certainly glad that I did, too! It seems that the lovely the mmmmm family has nominated me for ‘The Versatile Blogger Award’. I have to admit, this totally made my day. Ok, ok… It actually made my year. What can I say? I’ve never been nominated for any kind of anything when it comes to blogging, so once I read, and reread my notification, I was elated! I’ve just recently started blogging, so the notion that someone thought my blog entertaining enough to nominate surely made me feel fantastic – and grateful. I feel a bit under-dressed as I graciously accept my nomination, but hey – my “thank you” is just as heartfelt in my scrubs as it would be in any evening gown. So thank you, thank you, thank you! You’ve made my day!

It feels good when someone relates. I know it shouldn’t matter, but it gives me a whopping sense of elation when I see that little orange notification icon at the top of my screen. Forget the Golden Ticket, Charlie! This is way better! So, thank you so much the mmmmm family for making my ultra-dreadful day into a day of joy! I appreciate all who have come my way and thank you for reading and for the follows. You guys are awesome!!!

So, I’m hoping that I am not too late on this one. Here are the rules:

  • Display the Award Certificate on your blog.
  • Announce your win with a post. Make sure you post a link back to me as a ‘thank you’ for the nomination.
  • Present 15 awards to 15 deserving bloggers.
  • Leave them a comment to let them know after you have linked them to a post.
  • Post 7 interesting things about yourself.

7 Interesting things about moi? Well, let’s see…

  1. When I was 15, I managed to sneak from my home in SC to NC for Lollapalooza 93. I jammed front row to Arrested Development, Primus, and many other awesome bands. I even got my nose pierced! Once I returned home from my “church trip”, my new nose ring was promptly snatched out, and I was grounded for 6 months. It was totally worth it.
  2. I’ve never really lived anywhere long enough to establish a set social circle. This was one of the many “perks” of being a military brat.
  3. I drink at least 7 cups of coffee a day. If I wake up without coffee, my day is thrown into a total funk and everyone in my path is destined to share my misery.
  4. My son will never know this, but he is named after the lead singer of Duran Duran.
  5. I am excellent fisherman! Nothing beats fishing from your own dock in Southwest Florida.
  6. I spent an entire summer learning how to help build a staircase, lay sheetrock, and turn an attic into an extra bedroom. Of course, the incentive was that this extra bedroom would be my own private bedroom with my own Swatch telephone.
  7. I’ve wanted to be a cardiothoracic surgeon since I was 7 years old.

There ya go! A few tidbits about me. Now, without further adieu – here are my nominations:

About Trees Without Roots

I'm a sometimes spunky, sometimes brooding Southern woman who is still trying to find my roots. I come from a travelling Military upbringing, and I hope to one day plant my feet firmly into the ground, and settle. I have no real theme going here, just a bit of randomness that is my life. I hope you enjoy.

    Thanks for nominating me! I really appreciate your blog, and honesty as well. 🙂

  5. Oh my gosh thank you so much! I LOVE your list of facts. You are hilarious. The Duran Duran part… AWESOME. I’ll never tell my youngest his name choice was sort of inspired by Nicholas Cage … long ago before he became a douchebag (sorry that was super crude but I just could not think of a better way to explain it)..

    • LOL! Thank you! I just love reading your blog – it’s really fun and an awesome read. I’m so glad that you’ve taken time to read my little rants. 🙂 Nicholas Cage, huh? I love it! I used to be super in love, well, until he did that whole Ghost Rider thing. Now all I can picture is a flaming skull when I see his face. 🙂 – Mollie

Life as a sandwich generation x’er, stacked with irony. As a ‘normal’ person peering out from the boundaries of suburbia, as a transplant from another state, maybe another planet. As a mother of teenage boys and freelance working writer balancing parenting with helping to care for my mother. And now as an only child of a mother with Alzheimer’s (which sucks).
