Tuesday Trivia

Tis the season....for a little trivia! I should be cleaning, preparing the house for the throngs that will be gathering in just a few short days, but with so much to do...I do what I do best...I stall.

Not knowing where to begin (the list is endless), I will begin off the list! That would be OTL in computer acronyms. While online last night, I IM'd with a blogging friend who got me to thinking! I love when that happens. She used an acronym I had not heard of....SAHB. I've used LOL, ROFL, MIRL, BBL, BTW, DH, TMI and SAHM, but SAHB? Multitasking, as I sometimes do while carrying on a conversation (could that be called NPA: not paying attention?), I popped in to her blogsite and discovered this post. I won't spoil the surprise, but let me just say, that's a creative and oh-so-appropriate acronym, for this blogging addicted momma...you know the one that should be cleaning and preparing some Christmas menus!
Karen, at Karen's Korner has bestowed upon me a pretty fabulous award: The Bodacious Blog award! Thank you Karen...and PTL for His goodness! You have brought so many so much joy since you began your blogging journey!

Hau`oli la Ho'omana'o to my MIRL blogging friend, Dawn! She has just returned from an Anniversary trip to Hawaii and was kind enough to let those of who stayed behind (in the cold!) live vicariously through her most amazing photo journal of her trip. In spite of getting home on Sunday evening, she somehow found the time to participate in BooMama's Christmas Tour of Homes! She amazes and inspires!

I found a new, really fun blog this week: Hootin' Anni's! Anyone that lists her occupation as Senior Citizen and has a little Santa Hat for her side scroll...is someone I'd like to MIRL! If she's anything like her blog--she really is a hoot!
And a must-mention trivia: I reconnected with an old blogging friend (formerly Created for HIS Glory...now Molly-Coddled.com) this week following my WW post. Yes, folks, someone actually knew of Temecula...and actually lived there! It truly is a small, small world...especially in cyberspace. It was good to hear from you again DF; as soon as I get this pesky housework finished, I will clean up my side bar and update your blog address!

One last bit of trivia, although there is nothing trivial about this site, if you have not discovered Boomer Babes Rock you must go there right now (but please do come back!) I first met Allison Bottke while blog-surfing and discovered her God Allows U-Turn ministry. Along with several other amazing Christian women, this blog daily offers powerful writing to inspire, empower, and enlighten! You will want to add this site to your sidebar in 2008, it's just the kind of gift that keeps on giving!

O.K., enough of this stalling, it's time to make hay--oh, wait, that was on yesterday's list! Today is a new day...and no need to worry...it will all get done!

Yes! It! Will!

Of course it will!

Or in the words of every good Swedish Santa: HO! HO! HO!
(translated: "Sure it will! You betcha!")
Anyone else LOL????

Good Afternoon Diane,
"THANKS" for linking me. I'm glad you liked the Award. Girl, I still don't know all those Acronyms. LOL. I do know that one and a few other ones. I used to IM friends a while back myself. Wasn't that sweet of Dawn to take us with her. I have been enjoying it and am looking forward to her next post about it. She has shown some beautiful pictures from there. I've never been there myself, but would love to go someday. The internet is amazing huh? I'm glad you found someone you knew and is from where you used to live. When I first started blogging, I remember the other Diane was the only one from Arkansas and lived close by. I have met another lady from the Southern part of Arkansas and a lady up to my North in Missouri. It is indeed a small world we live in. I'm like you, I need to be doing chores instead of sitting here in front of the computer. But, if I leave, I'm afraid I might miss something. LOL. No, seriously, I do get away from it tho. I usually get up around 4:30a.m. and start me some coffe and get on the computer. If hubby is home, I'll get him up when he has to get up and stay off till he goes to work, then I get back on till it's time to get the girls up. After I take them to school I get back on and stay till after I have my bowl of cereal. Then I get off for a good while. LOL. I do come in from time to time to check and see who's posted and who hasn't. Since so many live in different time zones and different parts of the country, everyone hasn't posted at 4:30a.m. LOL. Well, take care my friend and have a great Tuesday. May God Bless You and Yours.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.
P.S. You are most welcome for the award. You are most deserving and I'm glad you enjoy my blog. I always enjoy visiting yours.

Thanks for the laugh. Hey congratulations on winning a blog award. :)

I enjoyed seeing your daughter's pictures and hearing about your horse adventure. (Yes, I'm posting on the wrong post, I know.)

It sounds like you are very much in the Christmas spirit!

And I love the wordless Wednesday picture. I remember it from before. But that sort of picture stays alive forever. It spells h-o-p-e and it reminds us of our heavenly father.

You crack me up! Thanks for the plug - but you do know that I just recycled last year's don't you? I got back just in time to put it up.

I hope to get back to the travelogue soon. So much more to show and tell!

Thanks for making me smile, Diane. My goodness, you can sure feel the Christmas spirit over here!

Love that acronym. And I'm laughing at Dawn's comment because I was very tempted to recycle last year's tour photos too. I'm so busy right now and Cameron is here so much more than usual, I know for sure I won't catch up with everyone until after the holidays.

But like you, I'm just going with the flow. There are only so many hours in a day, so we do what we can and call it good, right?

Merry Christmas!
