    Thank you dearie. You are so sweet! Now, did you know that I am almost having a nervous breakdown over the awards I received last week? This is because I’m not sure who to award them to. This is not because I don’t think people deserve them, but because they either already have it or they don’t display their awards on their blog (I don’t know whether they will be annoyed or not) OR I have already awarded them a zillion awards. HA HA! Anxiety makes life interesting. I will add this to my post I’m working on. 😀
