Tagged, a few awards and I'm in a funk!

I have been in a funk since yesterday afternoon.  Did you hear the news of the military fighter jet that crashed in San Diego? Well, that happened down the street from where my girls go to school.  The two houses that were destroyed were across the street from a friend.  Several other friends live mere houses away.

As you can imagine this crash is having a huge impact on our community.  The whole incident makes me feel so vulnerable and out of sorts.  

***********************
I thought I would take the time to get to catch up on some awards and a tag I received!  I had several awards to mention but in my compulsive need to be organized I accidentally deleted the file I was keeping them in!  I was only able to find the following: 

Saundra at Italian Mama Gone Crazy gave me this cool award!



Mamarazzi, the queen of award giving, bestowed this little gem on moi!



And then Ms. Mine my Magpie Tagged me with this:



Here are seven random things about myself:

1. I am a total control freak......but I try really hard to control it!  :)

2. I once spent a month in the Rainforest's of Honduras.

3. I bite my nails and because of this they are ugly beyond belief.  I have tried to stop but as far as bad habits go, it doesn't cost me any money, it isn't illegal and it won't make me fat!  So I keep it!

4. I was once featured in the San Diego Hall of Champions for excellence in High School sports.

5. I am terrified of deep dark water.  You couldn't pay me to ever take a cruise.  

6. I can only snorkel if my husband holds my hand (or swims really close).

7. Even though I am 41 and have two children I still wonder when I am going to feel like an adult.  :)

Tag your it!  If you haven't done this tag please feel free to tag yourself.

I'm really sorry for missing anyone who gave me an award.  I didn't ignore it on purpose!

Thanks for stopping by!

I'm so sorry about what happened in your community. Something similar happened last year around here and it does affect you in a slightly different way when it's so close to home. Like one person said, we are on the edge of mortality. It's scary and my heart breaks.

All my family in San Diego are distraught also...

It was so scary to hear about!

Small planes crash into our mountains here a lot... and it is just so sad and scary!

I hope they find the baby safe.

i am so sorry to hear about what happened to your community. it must be quite jarring. sending lots of hugs and prayers...

Miss Anne said...

I am so glad that you and your family are safe. I saw on the news this morning about it, how devastating.

Congrats on your awards!

I hope you have a wonderful day!

Kelli @ Gohn Crazy said...

Completely understandable that you are feeling like that. It's crazy to think that even in our safe little bubbles that we create for ourselves that it isn't always in our control.

Congrats on your awards. :)

I love your #7...I can totally relate!

K said...

hey you! I considered myself tagged! :-)
confession- I pick my nails and my cuticles. terrible. all in all, thinking of life's terrible habits, I figure it could be worse.
My uncle told me that a blue funk is better than a purple haze...
I'm thinking of you.

Mamarazzi said...

very scary for your girls!! and you. feel better, do something fun, celebrate life!

the award looks good on you!

Jenners said...

Oh my God! I can't even imagine something like that happening so close to home. (I try to stay away from the news because I find it depressing so I hadn't heard about this). I would be out of sorts too.

You are well-deserving of the awards. I really enjoy your blog. I bite my nails too (and even more disgusting, sometimes the skin around them...it is a horrid habit!). I'm 41 too and I feel the same way ... like I am imposter in the grown-up world. There are days when I say to myself "I am actually someone's mother and I hardly know what I am doing." Maybe that feeling never goes away!

Shannon said...

Totally understand why you would be in a funk! I heard the news about that yesterday... how awful.

Lindsay said...

I'm with you on the cruise thing. I do not like the idea of open ocean at all. I'm even afraid of being close to shore and not being able see the bottom. My fear of what's unseen under the surface gets to me.

Lindsay said...

I didn't even see the first part! I'm glad you're daughters are OK! I can't imagine how scary that must have been...

scrappysue said...
