Honest Scrap

I've been awarded Honest Scrap by a few wonderful bloggers, but never got around to remarking on it before. In any event, thank you for this honor.

Rules for the Award:
1. Choose a minimum of 7 blogs you find brilliant in content or design.
2. Show the 7 winners' names and links on your blog, and leave a comment informing them that they have won the Honest Scrap award.
3. List at least 10 honest things about yourself
I'm awarding Honest Scrap to...
Honest things about me:
1. I love my job. I get to interact with lots of people on lots of different issues. My day is always changing and I love that I get to use my education and my brain for my job.
2. My weight loss ultimate goal was to be able to buy a suit at JCrew, but my law school friends have convinced me that I should change that to Anne Klein.
3. I'm afraid that I'll never lose the weight, because I've been fat all my life and so why bother? As we read in The Little Prince, it's a viscious circle.
4. My new goal is to be happy and content. Not resigned, content. To me, content doesn't me that you abandon striving or working towards other goals, it means being happy in your own self and situation or working towards that.
5. I'm afraid that because of this miscarriage it means that we'll miscarry again.
6. I'm attracted to dorks and geeks.
7. The best problem that I have is that I have too many books to read.
8. I'm having a miscarriage and my marriage is exceedingly difficult, but I was cheered today because the library sent me a notice that the audiobook of the fourth Twilight book that I've had on hold for many moons is finally in for me.
9. I heart carbs. A lot.
10. I LOVED The Hangover.

I love my Anne Klein suits. Of course, I also love carbs. So I don't fit in my Anne Klein suits. damnit.

Thanks. I'll add this in to my lineup now that I've vowed to post every day in July. Thanks for the fodder!

I too love carbs. I have not been overweight my whole life...I used to be skinny- but now I can eat what I want!!! It IS a vicious cycle.

I also have too many books to read. It is such a burden! :)

Just know that we will be here cheering you on!!!

I love carbs more than the best chocolate! I loved the Hangover too and JCrew rocks. What a great list you have. Hey hang in there ok? Sounds like a tough time for you but there is a light at the end of this crazy train, i promise u.

Clare said...

I heart carbs too. Mmm.. fries, bread, pasta. Are there other food groups?

Jo said...

Thanks, Jen! I did this a while back, but may do it again. It means a lot to be recognized for "honesty" these days as I am struggling with being honest with myself, let alone with everyone else.


Jo said...

Oh -- and Breaking Dawn is by far my favorite Twilight book. I've read it so many times. *sigh*

I am so sorry that you are going through a loss and the marriage is hard...

PJ said...

I love this!

Let's see... I love my job too.

I really need to try and loose weight, and have been chickenshit. You're brave for doing so.

Miscarriage sucks immeasurably.

Nachos. Nachos. Nachos.

I would have totally sent you Breaking Dawn if I knew you wanted it. I'm reading the Sookie Stackhouse novels (Charlaine Harris) now and they are addictive. Vampires and supernatural stuff, but more adult.

I have the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo in my pile-o-books to read.

I signed up for braces bunch and am looking forward to it.

Contentment is an excellent goal... and sometimes very elusive. I'm sorry that you're experiencing so many difficulties right now. Sending prayers and good thoughts from north of the 49th parallel.

I'm so, so sorry for your m/c. I'm losing blood from my ivf chemical pregnancy as well.

Grieving with you...
