I won another award!!

I'm very proud of this one. I haven't been blogging for long, and I've always marveled at how weird blogging is; random things go through my head that I find amusing, I write them down and then other people read them. Most of the time people just read them and then move on, but sometimes somebody "sticks" because for whatever reason (they're CRAZY) they think I'm funny. But when those people are other bloggers that I think are hilariously awesome, it's even more incredible. It's REALLY WEIRD this blogging thing, and I've managed to actually make some friends over the past few weeks.

My newest and best blogger friend is Tina from The Teething Mom, and she has given me this award and said the most fucking nicest and most awesome things about me, I seriously want to cry. And that has nothing to do with the fact that I've been drinking champagne all day.... no, really! Look what she said:
Jill is unapologetic about her inner, neurotic ramblings, which is exactly the reason why her readers love her and why I consider her as my blog idol (let's talk payment plans later Jill).  She serves it to you untainted by pretentions, even bitchslap you to the moon and back in case you still don't get it.  This is exactly the reason why she's fierce in my vocabulary.  She is raw, eloquent, hilarious, witty, sarcastic and best of all, she doesn't abuse profanity just to come off as funny.  In this niche saturated by sellout blogs and follower collecting whores, Jill is a breath of fresh air.  It is just a matter of time before this bitch gets published, and when that time comes, I can proudly say I knew her first.
Wow. I mean, just. Wow. Thank you. That is so incredibly awesome and I am humbled by your words. Thank you!!

I went to Mumsyhood.com, the originator of this awesome award, and I read her rules. She says if you get this you can pass it on to somebody else, as long as you say why, and so I am proud to pass this Fierce Mom Blogger Award on to....

My Life as an Ungraceful, Unhinged, and Unwilling Draftee into the Autism Army

Lynn, the Autism Army Mom, or... My Life as an Ungraceful, Unhinged and Unwilling Draftee into the Autism Army; another one of my new blogger friends.

You know, you live your life being the person that you are, you're funny, you're smart, you're ambitious, you're whatever you want to be. You have kids and you think things are supposed to turn out a certain way, and sometimes life just throws you a fucking bomb. Autism? Seriously? How can my kid have autism? Isn't that like Rainman? None of us knew what autism was before our kids were diagnosed, but we learned, because we had to, and we do whatever it takes to get the best care and services for our kids. But we're still the people we were before the bomb hit; we're still funny, and smart, and ambitious, or whatever it was we were, and just because we now have this new, additional identity of "special needs mom" that doesn't need we also need to change who we were before.

And, that's Lynn. Lynn is funny as fucking hell. She's smart as a whip (when she's sober. HA HA! Just kidding!) and so raw and so honest and she says the things we're all thinking, even if we don't want to admit it, and she makes us laugh and realize that it's all still okay. Autism can really fucking suck, but that's no reason why we can't still keep our sense of humor about things, so why not just write it all down for the world to see? And she's fierce; as fierce as all hell, and it is with great pride that I pass this award onto her. If you're not reading Lynn, you're making a big mistake. She already has a big following, and I am proud to call myself another one of her fans.

Jill! What can I say? I'm flat on my back with a horrible stomach flu right now so this may not turn out coherently (and there may be puke on my screen before I finish). Thank you so so much. I so appreciate your nice words and ALL of your support. I'm with Tina on everything she saiin her tribute....congratulations! From one fierce mama to another XOXO!!!
