You know, I was so busy giving out awards yesterday and there were so many great blogs from which to choose from, I actually did something so embarrassing I'm blushing as I type this entry:
I wrote a comment on someone's blog telling them I'd given them an award when I really hadn't. This person was so incredibly gracious. She came and left a very nice comment congratulating the award recipients.
The funny thing is, I was up with my baby in the wee hours of this morning and it suddenly struck me what I had done. I blamed the realization on irrational, middle-of-the-night thinking. There was no way I'd made such a blunder!
This morning I actually checked it out (cue funeral march) and realized YES, I did flub up. Big time.
With yesterday being April Fools, my first instinct was to act like it was a "Happy April Fools!" type thing. But I quickly decided against that. It would not only be a jerky thing to do (read: not funny at all), but also deceitful.
So, I decided to come clean and just admit my stupidity to the world.
Susan, I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me. I love your blog.
Since you've already received a Prolific Blogger Award, I thought I'd give you a brand new award that I am made up. (I don't think there are any rules against making up your own award, so I'm going to!)
Don't feel obligated to pass it on, but you are hereby awarded the:
A is for AWESOME award.
For bloggers who are not only fantastic blog crafters, but also AWESOME people (kind, generous, humble, gracious, and forgiving).
And if you choose, you can pass it on to five (or six!) other awesome bloggers.
Have a great day, everyone, and try not to stick your foot in your mouth -- or your foot through your laptop screen, as the case may be.
