What a Weekend!!!
The school musical, Anything Goes, was this weekend and my son was in it so there was much activity at our house. I had heard many of the songs before, but had never seen the play--very funny! And of course, it was great (did I mention my son was in it?! :)
Here are the award's rules: You must pass it on to 5 other Fabulous Bloggers in a post. (You might find their email addresses on their Profile page or, if not available, post as a "comment" to their latest post.) You must include the person who gave you the award, and link back to them. You must list 5 of your Fabulous Addictions in the post. You must copy and paste these rules in the post. Right click the Award icon and save it to your computer, then post with your own awards.
Here are five of my faves for your viewing pleasure (I got another award last summer so I am not going to duplicate.)
Bad Cripple: Bill Peace is a professor and writer and skier and has a disability. He has great perspective on disability issues.
Planet of the Blind: Steve and Connie Kuuisisto write this blog which also has disability issue perspective as well as a distinctive literary bent.
Also check out The Quirk Factor which tells of the life of a mom who has sons--one with autism--and a sense of humor.
I have extreme guilt choosing just 5. Please check out my blogroll for more great ones--I will just need more awards so I can highlight all of them!
And here are five of my addictions:
*Chocolate *Books (I did not copy these from Ruth's paper... I just had the same answers--honest.) *Blogging and reading blogs (You may have guessed this...) *Tea *Microfleece--so soft and warm (though I will dump it like yesterday's paper if spring ever arrives!)
I am the mother of three, wife of one. I am a Partners in Policymaking graduate and a committed disability advocate. I want to catch up on my scrapbooking, learn more about art-journaling, get my house in order, read all the books I have set aside to read and change the world--not necessarily in that order. The opinions in this blog are my own and not those of any of employers.
