I woke up (really grumpy and really stinkin' early) to this email:
"I just wanted to let you know that A Queer Family Grows In Redneckville has been nominated in the Family & Parenting, Feminist, and LGBTQ categories of the 2010 Canadian Weblog Awards!
This is a new, juried competition with public nominations. The shortlists of nominees will be announced on 1 December 2010, and the finalists will be announced on 1 January 2011. If you would like to show off your nomination, grab a button for your website and spread the word.
I knew this was coming, because my really kind nominee let me know ahead of time. And yet it still feels like my birthday and Christmas all rolled into one. (Thanks Erica - I'm feeling far less grumpy now).
