Gorgeous Award

Molly at I'm a Sleeper Baker and Badgergirl at Adventures of Badgergirl gave me a Gorgeous Award.  For the gorgeous award, I'm supposed to list six things about myself.

  1. I can't decorate worth a darn.  I have no idea what goes with what.  Most of the time when I do try to put things together I don't think they look good.
  2. My favorite author is Shakespeare, but only when read out loud (otherwise it is too hard to follow).
  3. I rarely read one book at a time.  From my comfortable spot on the couch, I can see bookmarks in three books.  I can usually set a book down for six month and still be able to pick it up and know exactly where I am in the story.
  4. I am counting down the days to my haircut next week.  It has been too long since my last hair appointment (almost 4 months, not that I'm counting).
  5. My basement is a mess because I'm busy getting all last year's things ready for a consignment sale.  Kids grow so fast so I'm selling last year's things to make room for more.  The clothes are washed, toy parts found, and everything ready to go.  I just need to tag everything before Sunday's drop-off.
  6. I collect bookmarks.  Good thing too because most of them are being used.
I'm supposed to tag more, but it seems so many have done this.  So, if you haven't - consider yourself tagged. I can't wait to read your list.

This morning I managed to finish just over 6 miles on the treadmill.  The first three were rough and the next three flew by.

nice job getting those six miles in!

My basement is a disaster area. I just don't care because I only go down there to use the treadmill!

The bookmarks reminded me of my wedding because we gave those out as party favors. I hope that you have a great week :-)

Hi Suzy,
You can come over and help me with my is a total looks like a tornado hit:) Great list of things about you! Good job on your six miler! The first few miles are always the hardest for me:(

Good jobe on the 6 treadmill miles! If I put a book down for six months, I generally have trouble wanting to open it again.

Isn't that how it is on some runs - the last part is easier. I don't know if it's because you know you've already made it halfway and are almost done or your body just warms up and feels better. Glad you kept at it!

Great list and good job whipping out 6 miles on a treadmill...that's tough!

Nice millwork! I have clothes I've been meaning to Ebay for months. Just can't ever seem to do it.

My pile of books is always beside my bed...I read every night before I go to sleep.
Good job on the treadmill! I was able to do mine outside--in SHORTS the last 2 runs ;)

Good job on the 6 miles. I often find the last miles easier,

I have one book that goes to the gym with me and then I am reading another book that is my main book but that is usually about it. And if I stop reading a book I almost never pick it back up.

Thanks for sharing.

I've never consigned stuff - I have two boys and by the time they are done with things, I just give it away. I was just looking in the little one's bedroom and realized I need to get the four years worth of stuff organized SOON or he'll have no room for anything else in his room.

I'm also always in the middle of multiple books.

Badgergirl said...

Great list! I can only read one book at a time, although I guess if I wanted to do multiple books they'd have be completely different so I didn't get confused.

I hope my 6-miler on the treadmill tomorrow goes as smoothly as yours did!
