Fourth Blogger Award for Under The Sheets-Shhh

Under The Sheets-Shhh was given it's fourth Lemonade blogger award from the very thoughtful George who writes LostNight's Scribblings. George's poems always touch me and seem to inspire me to write some of my memories into posts. He must think that Under The Sheets-Shhh shows great attitude and or gratitude. I hope a little of both. Thank you George, you're the best.

Before passing this award onto other well deserving bloggers, I would like to share with you five attitude and five gratitude things that you didn't know about me.

So attitude should be very easy for me......Try not judge that:

1) I can snap at you very quickly if after repeating myself three times you still haven't heard me.

2) I need about 7-8 hours of sleep every night. Without it I can be very cranky. This would be the perfect time for you to see my attitude in full force.

3) I will give you attitude if you are sitting behind me in the movies and kick my seat. Once by mistake is OK. Twice is another story.

4) Please say bless you after someone sneezes. If you don't I might correct you.

5) If I am left on hold for too long and that horrible phone wait music is playing, watch out to the people around me.

And now for my gratitude list:

1) I am thankful for each and every day of learning and growing.

2) I thank whoever is responsible for creating cotton candy, palm trees, wet noses on dogs, hugs and Tonka trucks.

3) I still write my gratitude down weekly in a gratitude journal so I can realize all of the good that is happening in my life. (This also helps me when I am having a bad day.)

4) I am grateful for this new year and a new President.

5) I am thankful for recently finding R$40 real in my jean pocket. I took those jeans with me to Brazil.

Oh man I can't stand it when people kick my seat either!!

I love my gratitude journal. Sometimes it may seem like I'm a negative ninny, but I do try to stay positive!

Christian said...

Thank you for the nomination :-) Reading your journal keeps me interested in every post I can't get enough of (In a non creepy way) but in ways I can relate. Haha. Have a great weekend :-D

I just reread this and I think you and I may be twins separated at birth! I could relate to all the first five!

3 Bay B Chicks said...

A nod from one of my most favorite bloggers? Thank you! It is incredibly nice of you to think of us.

Oh, and your lists cracked me up...especially link to the Mayo clinic re how much sleep you need. I dream of the day that I may return to 7-8 hours of sleep a night. Pure bliss!

Dear Simplicity: What if we try to write in our gratitude journals together while watching a movie?

Laura said...

Linda: Could we be sister's from another mother? I am so glad you can relate. Keep up the great writing you are doing!

Laura said...

3 Bay B Chicks: Ahhh shucks! So glad I could make you smile. Uh wait shouldn't we be sleeping right now? :)
