Who Says I’m Awe-Summmm??



I have been tagged by SWANEESINGER to list 7 Awe-Summm things about me.  I refuse to think today, so I am just going to type the first 7 things that come to my mind.  I am to tag seven bloggers new to me……………..excuse me, you’re ALL new to me…
Soooooo….anyone who would like to participate, please join me!!

  1. Short.  5′
  2. Stubborn, stubborn, stubborn.  I would just as soon lose a body part than ask for help. Plus, people generally tell me that I am…………..just in case I  didn’t notice.
  3. Hooked on Reality TV.  (I never usually admit to this)
  4. I kicked cancer’s butt! Just did an article with our newspaper re: my cancer story.
  5. I am alone, but never lonely.
  6. I was the first female elected official in our town.
  7. I am the moderator on TV for a local cable axcess TV channel.

Now, I just can’t leave some things alone and I wanted to get a different perspective on what is Awe-Summmm about me.  so, I asked my granddaughters for their unbiased opinion, and they came up with:

  1. Funny and cute. (I just love these girls)
  2. Cool shoes (they play dress up in all my shoes…old and new)
  3. Make the best mashed potatoes.
  4. My house.  They can make a mess and I don’t yell.
  5. Buy them toys
  6. I have the best sparkly jewelry.
  7. Makes them laugh (In a good way, I’m sure)
  8. Never yell  (I know it’s 8, but I couldn’t NOT add this one, right, Mommy, hehe)

Actually, I like their list better………………….

    Grandma’s are always more awesome than parents. You get to experience the true joys of having children around- the ability to spoil them rotten, and then hand them back :)

    I think you are Awe-summm, too!

    I love that you make the best mashed potatoes. Yummy!

    But I super-love that you’re the first elected female official!!

    Make sure you put a link on your blog so we can read your cancer story!

    Great article/inspiring story…

    I learn something new every day. Would never have guessed that you are only 5 feet tall. You have such a “big” personality. I love it, you’re a little dynamo!

    You are definitely Awe-summmm! (This is one of my favorite awards… I think it has something to do with the crown!)

    Love, love, love your outlook on things.

    I read the article in Erie Times. I didn’t realize you were from Erie.
    I went to Mercyhurst back in the day. I loved it.
    My mother told me it was the most expensive good time I’ll ever have!

    Don’t you just love grand kids. I have two and my relationship with them is so different from the one I have with their mom. My kids tell me I am too judgmental and my granddaughter tells me that she likes I never judge her.

    I like the kids’ list too. Anyone who will buy me toys is top on my list. You are an inspiration for kicking some cancer ass. And, for keeping me laughing.

    I like their list better too, I think it probably shows the real you. Do you wear the mashed potatoes with the sparkly jewelry, is that why they laugh?
