*Girly squeal* *blush*

Trish from Coffee House Chatter has given little old me (well not really all that little at 5'10") the....



Well! Thank you very much!!

Now according to Trish's site, the thoughtful blogger is given to someone like this....

For those who answer blog comments, emails, and make their visitors feel at home on their blogs. For the people who take other's feelings into consideration before speaking out and who are kind and courteous. Also for all of those bloggers who spend so much of their time helping other bloggers design, improve, and fix their sites. This award is for those generous bloggers who think of others.


I am honoured. Maybe I am being too nice on this site? Naaaa.

Though maybe I wasn't very thoughtful about all those people who drive down the road dragging their child by the ankle. They may libel me for calling them doofuses. Maybe there will be a class action lawsuit... I think I used jerk too. Hmmm. Maybe I don't deserve this award.

Well, thanks, and now to pass it on....I think it is only to one person...

*scratching my head*

*examining my blogroll*

To quote Trish,

*crickets*

Hmmmm, this is tough to chose just one....

Beth over at Booksetc has already got it and richly deserved it. If you didn't have it already....

Easily, I'm delighted to nominate Kate over at Expat Mama who has helped me out with information about schooling in Spain, and we have traded book lists. She's an American living somewhere near Madrid, and has been there for around a decade, she's got kids in the school, though much younger than mine, and is going to teacher's college in Spanish...bless her linguistic soul...

So there you have it.

Briefly, eldest seems to be responding to the anti-biotics, you know those ones that I bought for 98 cents over there in Spain. Well. Here. Guess what they cost. Same drug, same company....Can't guess?

*cough* *gag*

$77!!!!!

OMG

She did go to camp today and walked the dog, although she was pretty uncomfortable. It is progress.

Oooo, and I had another weird traffic moment today I meant to blog about, but can I remember what it was? NO. I just remember sitting in traffic thinking that I should post about it, but now I cannot remember what happened.

Maybe there is forgettful blogger award...Maybe I should start one...If I remember....

Thank you very much Trish!

You so deserve that award!
And thanks for the mention.

If you start up a Forgetful Blogger Award, consider putting me on that list...

Glad to hear the eldest is responding to the meds.

Beth: Thank you very much! That forgetful blogger award??? I may have to get going on that one

Beth: Yeah, the air gets thin up here...the husband is only about 5'7", although I swear he was taller when I married him.

Well awarded!

The antibiotics? OMG, indeed.

Dorky Dad said...

Awesome! Way to go.

As for the antibiotic ... that's just unfortunately the way drug companies work. They charge as much as they think they can get away with. Or they're allowed to get away with.

Och! Don't get me started on the state of medical bills in the US! $1000 for an emergency room visit for a pulled shoulder...we are so up to our ears with medical bills here, it really compromises our credit!

Give me .98 antibiotics any day and I'll gladly wait a month for a dental appointment.
