Who writes checks anymore, anyway?

One of my best friends is staying with me for a month until she leaves for France, so I’ve been trying to keep the house in a semi-orderly state. Lucky for me I’ve found a couple of cleaning ladies who don’t mind working for cheap.

The younger one was pretty gung-ho…

…while the older one was a bit condescending.

The owner was a real bitch, though.


Anywhoo, last Friday while I was busy giving her an award for her so-hilarious-I-almost-peed-my-pants-that-one-time blog, Dolce was busy giving me one. Awesome! Validation, how I crave thee…

Now I’m supposed to give it to 5 other Uber Amazing bloggers. You should, like, totally be reading these blogs if you aren’t already. So here they are, in a particular order which I will not divulge:

Kate at New Life in South Dakota because I think it is Uber Amazing how she’s taken control of her life, and I always find her posts inspiring. PLUS she has a cooking blog which is new but still ROCKS.

Dingo at As I was Saying because of her Uber Amazing photoshop skillz. Yes, with a Z because they are that amazing.

Crissy at Crissy’s Page because it is the first blog I read in the morning to reward myself for making it to work yet another day. Also she is an Uber Amazing Hot Mommy Blogger.

Lisa at Lemon Gloria; a blog I’ve just started reading but is hilarious and Uber Amazing.

Ben at No Ordinary Rollercoaster because his lunch box rivals mine for it’s Uber Amazing-ness. Also I hope he will take me on a date.

P.S. Don’t forget about the contest! You don’t even have to have a blog (or a pit bull) to win!
