7 X 7 Award

I would like to thank Daphne at “My Distant Husband” for honoring me with the 7 X 7 award!  According to the rules of this award I need to tell you 7 things about me and then pass it on to those who are equally worthy to be recognized.  So here it goes!

1.  I am extremely gullible. If you tell me something, I will think it is gospel.  Even if it is totally nuts, I will still have a part of me that will think it is true and question whether you are really pulling my leg.

2.  I don’t do roller coasters at all.  I have only ridden two in my life. Once when I was a little kid and had no clue what a roller coaster was and second when my husband took me to Cedar Point and convinced me that the line we were standing in was for a mild little ride with aliens waving at me. I was thinking something similar to “It’s a Small World” at Disney World.  It never occurred to me I was really about to ride a roller coaster until I was locked into my seat and the car was heading up the incline. It scared the be Je$u$ out of me!  

3.  I have a matched set of 3 dogs and 3 cats. Even though there are times when I would like to ring their necks, I love them to pieces.  

4.  I love music and am happiest bopping to my tunes.

5.  I talk too much, just like a chatty Kathy doll whose pull string is stuck.  

6.  I was always the shortest kid in my class, and I never grew taller than 5’0.

7.  I am a member of Phi Theta Kappa.

OK, that wasn’t too painful! Now without further ado I would like to pass this award on to some wonderful bloggers in no particular order.

1.  Jenn at “Wine-n-Chat”
2.  L. Avery at “When a Southern Woman Rambles”
3.   Jo at “My Wandering Mind”
4.   Susan at “Today’s Working Woman”
5.   Paula at “Paula Martin Potpourri”
6.   Linda at “Linda says”
7.   Darlene at "Bloggity Blogger"

Congratulations!  It is up to you to pass the torch until next time when I give you another glimpse into the life of a trucker’s wife.


  1. Thank you so much for presenting me with the 7 x 7 award!! How cool!! I will do this just as soon as my blog design is finished!! Cheers, Jenn.

  2. Maria, thank you! I am so happy you enjoyed it!

  3. Jenn, you are very welcome!! Thanks for stopping in to pick it up! We will pop open a bottle of wine in your honor to celebrate. Of course you will have to drag my sorry butt out of the toilet later as I usually throw wine up, but it is all good!!

  4. Thanks so much for the award, Kathy. It was good finding out more about you and I'll try to think of 7 things about myself that I haven't already posted on my blog.

  5. I don't do roller coasters, either. Can't imagine why I'd want to purposefully volunteer for something where I'll spend five minutes promising God absolutely anything if He'll just not let me die on the ride. Doesn't sound like a good time to me.

  6. We sound a lot alike! I pretty much only ride coasters at DIsneyland otherwise no thanks! I also talk A LOT! :)

  7. I'm glad you left me out of the 7, as I can only come up with 3-5.
