This week I have recieved TWO awards: Beautiful Blogger and A Hoy award! I feel very touched to be given these awards, I guess it means people like me or something. It especially means alot right now, because I feel like lately my blogging has been a little "stagnant", like all I do is whine and complain on here and its getting a bit old. So thankyou, Angela and Jenn, for thinking of me. It also meant alot to me that you both think I am a good mom. Sometimes it's hard for me to see the positive in myself and little reminders are great.

So I need to pass the awards on and here is the akward part........I don't know how to "copy and paste" or "post a link". I know...lame! Remember, I spent much of my young adulthood in hospitals and psych wards, and while alot of people my age were awarded college diplomas, I was awarded Social Security. It wasn't until after I was married that I learned how to turn on a computer. Learning how to go online all by myself was a huge accomplishment. Have you ever watched your mom try to teach your grandpa how to do something on the computer? That's pretty much what it is like when Chris is helping me figure something out.

Indcidently, this is why, whenever I post a picture, the text always comes after the picture. Once I post a picture on my blog, I can never figure out how to get the text above it. But hey, I'm just glad I figured out how to post pictures (after about 6 months of blogging)! But if you have the answer to that one, let me know.

So anyways, I'm not sure how to really pass these awards on. Is it ok if I just name people? And some of you may have already gotten these awards. But I just want to thank you all for your support and let you know that you are all beautiful (or handsome, as the case may be).

Kara at "Sunday Confessional"- thank you for supporting me when I first got started int the blog world. I know you are having a hard time right now and I hope you are getting the support you need and I look forward to updates!

Tara at "the struggle within"- you are a true friend. My heart aches for you at what you have been going through, but I am so proud of the strength you have shown to keep fighting!

David at "Eat for Fun"- I love your honesty and sense of humor, and I also think you are very courageous to put yourself out there and remind us that men struggle with ED's too.

Tia at "Addicted to Aspartame"- I know you feel like you are "just a disease", but you are so much more than that! You are an educated woman, a talented baker, a loving mother, and a caring friend. I wish you could look in the mirror and see that!

Jana Bananas at "Playing with Numbers"- I love reading your blog. I am , like, addicted to it! I can totally relate to most of what you write. I wish you lived closer, I would totally stalk you in a non-creepy, will you be my friend sort of way.

LouLou at "Jumping Cups"- you are always full of positive encouragement! I love your free spirit and creativity, just reading about your travels inspires me to have more adventure in my life!

Angela at "Leaving Ed"- you are such a talented writer. You have a gift portraying life with an eating disorder and the pain and suffering it causes. I am so excited that you have found a way to get the treatment you need and I hope soon to read your writing on recovery and life without ED!

Keely at "a day in the life of an unaverage girl"- my best friend, I miss you so much!!!!!!

Also Laura, Jenn, Jennifer, Sairs, Kristen, Cammy, Brie (even though she doesn't blog anymore), Jodi, Alex, Lisa, Sarah, and everyone else I know and have met on here. I don't think that awards should be limited; everyone who puts there heart out there and reaches out in love and support deserves recognition!

XO Lisa

Thank you. And I had to start using firefox to figure out to move the pics around. It's easier you can just grab and drag and drop.

Sairs said...

I find it so hard to choose for awards as well, I think you did a good job. I didn't think of doing it your way when I had to give them out last time :-)

Lou Lou said...

Im so friggin glad you did learn how to use a computer so that you could be here blogging, Im so glad I came across your blog, you deserve both of those awards and I just want to thank you so much, it actually made me a bit emotional to read that, and I really am so glad I have met you online here, in our sweet little haven of healing, where we can write our worst times, our best times and everything in between, i think your a loving soul, and a loving mother and wife, and I just wanted to send you some serenity ;love and light. XXXXXXXX THANK YOU!!!

Thank you.

And you do pretty darn good with a computer; I still can't figure out how to do my own layout (I use a blogger template; I think the dark midnight blue rather suits me and my blog.)
It took me ages to figure out how to post links and pics. I'd like to take an HTML class someday, or learn it from a book.

Thanks again for all your support and enjoy these coming summer days with your girls and wonderful hubby (he reminds me of mine - patient, kind and unconditionally loving!)

Lisa and Jim said...

Your shout-out made me warm and fuzzy, especially as I've just started blogging again. Thanks!

P.S. I would love to teach your children because I think you'd be a dream parent to work with.

Kara said...

Thank you for the award, Lisa. I haven't been god at keeping up with reading blogs lately, but I decided to read this one and it made me smile. Thanks.

Kara said...

Freudian slip? I don't know what that means - but I meant "good."

Cammy said...

Hey thanks for the shout-out Lisa! You are an incredible person, you know? Just a friendly reminder. ;)

Zena said...

Thankyou my darling, your words are soooo powerful ( I mean all of our words are but well just thanks) anyway you and I are in the same boat as far as computers go, I too was in le hospitals when everyone else were getting degrees, so I too am ummmm slow on the computer thing (took me an hour to post links on my blog...) Im also obstinate so eventually...eventually I figure things out!!! Anyway Thank you again...You made me smile again this week, (you and david) and to make me smile lately...well that is no simple task!!

so much love
