Inspiration Station

inspiringblogaward

Being a Meyers Briggs type ENFP, is it any wonder that I keep getting nominated for the Inspiring Blogger Award? 😀 We are known as the “Inspirers” and sometimes called the “Champions” of the personality spectrum. It fits me to a T, because I LOVE to encourage, motivate, excite, and build people up! Making others feel good is definitely my forte and I especially enjoy it when it comes to my lovers! 😉

SeattlePolyChick
, who has been one of my favorite bloggers since I first discovered WordPress, has nominated me for the award this time. Her blog is always insightful and heartfelt, open and real. She is struggling right now, sort of like I was about 6 weeks ago with the Professor, so I appreciate the opportunity to give her some encouragement. Check out her blog, I promise you will love it!! It always inspires ME in my open relationship journey.

I’m also excited about the opportunity to introduce you to 15 more wonderful bloggers! Each time I receive an award I wonder if I am going to be able to come up with enough of them but I keep finding more and more that I know you will enjoy! This list is composed of people I have discovered fairly recently and they are ALL fabulous!

Firstly though, I will reveal 7 more facts about myself. Maybe I can inspire you to think outside the box and try something different. For those of you for whom this may be new, those are the rules of receiving the award: give 7 facts about yourself followed by nominating and linking 15 more deserving blogs. Oh yeah, and don’t forget to reference and link to the blog that nominated YOU (wink, wink). Okay, here goes….

1. I am a huge fan of homeschooling and homeschool my own children. Not to say it is never trying but I really ENJOY it. I love, love, love reading to my kids and opening their minds to great literature. There are always fears that I’ll mess up somehow and the kids will be screwed but I try and remember that while we may not be on par with the public school and don’t even follow a typical curriculum, they have a lot of benefits that public school children do not.

We have a very relaxed attitude towards schooling and focus first on lots and lots of reading, preferably of great books and not just mediocre ones. My philosophy, for those who are in the know, is sort of an eclectic mix of Charlotte Mason style and unschooling along with workbooks for certain subjects, like math and grammar. We also utilize Sonlight books and book lists, minus the Christian aspect at this point.

2. I love to travel and wish I had the opportunity to do it more often. Right now, finances and children make it more difficult but it is my dream to someday visit many more places around the world. So far I’ve only been out of the U.S twice, to Israel and to Mexico (Cabo San Lucas area). I’ve been to more than half of the states within the U.S. but that is not enough! A girl can dream right? I’d love to go to Greece and also Australia, those are first on my wish list.

3. My first time on a surfboard I was a baby. My dad was taking me out on his as a toddler and surfing with me! So when I went back to live with him as a young teen, it came naturally. I mostly prefer to boogie board however. Too bad there is no beach where I live now! I love the feeling of riding a wave. Wheeee!

Only, I’m not so fond of getting banged up on the rocks. One Christmas morning, when the waves were about 8-10 feet tall, I was way out on my boogie board and caught a big wave to shore. It dragged me across about an inch of water over the reef that left me with razor like cuts all down my legs. Not fun! I’ve also got a scar on my knee from a surfing injury and once dislocated my shoulder out in the waves, but hey, I’m alive, haha.

4. I was a vegetarian for 5 years. It wasn’t really about saving the animals or any major political reason. I stopped eating meat when I lived with my father, because they didn’t and kept up my will power all through high school, until I was dating my ex –husband in college and we had dinner with his parents. They were really pushing me to enjoy the pot roast his mother had made and I didn’t want to hurt any feelings. Man, did it taste good that day too! Ha!

Because I was a vegetarian, and also liked to have a lot of sex, my friends (male and female) would sometimes tease me by singing that song about Mary Mo, she’s a vegetarian, she don’t like meat but she sure likes to bone! That’s not the only song I got teased with referring to sex, haha, there were a few, surprise, surprise!!

5. I once got busy in a Burger King bathroom! Okay, not really, it was Subway and I was dating a guy that worked there (we were 15 and 13 so this is acceptable, haha). We actually did it more than once, I’d come in for a visit and quickie. We also boned in the bathrooms in the lobby at a Holiday Inn, both the men’s and the women’s. There were times when people walked in and we had to be quiet and I was like standing on the toilet so no one could see my feet. I think I mentioned the porta potty incident… Ive done some sort of kinky masturbating in the showers at a camping spot on the beach before too, but no one was in there besides me. Oh and at the gym and another camping shower. I’m always fantasizing that some cleaning guy or someone will walk in. 😉

6. I LOVE dressing up and getting all dolled up with sexy lingerie, etc. I really haven’t had much opportunity to do so since my ex wasn’t really into it. Also, I am broke, haha, so can’t afford much but I do have some cute bra and panty sets and am thinking about ordering a bodystocking for my next party. It has a theme that would be fitting to wear one for and I’m looking forward to the chance to go all out. I was looking online at all the sexy outfits and costumes and totally just drooling, lol. Getting the chance to WEAR it somewhere would be so fun!! I love thigh highs too, and heels, all of it. Inwardly I’m a glamour girl. 😉

7. I’m NOT particularly flexible, lol, but I’m working on it. My pole dancing class helps some with that endeavor. Maybe I need to do Yoga or something too. One of the gals in my class does “hot yoga” where they turn the temperature up really high before doing various yoga poses and that sounds kind of interesting to try out.

When I got my massage the other day the woman kept referring to me as “athletic”. I’ve never really thought of it that way but I suppose I do have some pretty solid thighs, haha. I generally prefer fun dancing and running types of activities for working out. I’ve never been able to do a full split. This is why I hated ballet as a kid, and didn’t last very long.

Anyhow, enough of that, it’s time to discover a whole new world of blogs out there!! These are some of my newest finds and I know you will really enjoy them too!

Your very own Lovergirl has been awarded the Very Inspiring Blogger Award! Thank you so much to the lovely Kay of the DAFT Diaries! Her blog is an inspiration to ME so I am especially honored!! If you haven’t gone over there to take a peek, please do!

2.) Link back to the person who nominated you.
3.) State 7 things about yourself.
4.) Nominate 15 bloggers for this award.
5.) Notify those bloggers of the nomination by linking to one of their specific posts so that they get notified by ping back.

So let’s get to the exciting stuff!! 😉

7 MORE intriguing facts about your favorite Lovergirl:

1. One of my most embarrassing moments ever was being caught masturbating by not one, not two, but THREE guys peeking in the window of my bedroom back in high school. They were three sort of nerdy neighborhood boys around my age who happened to come peer in between the slats of my blinds while I was fingering away. Of course, they had to spread the news far and wide and I denied, denied, denied!! Who me? I would never do such a naughty thing!! I’m sure everyone believed that one! NOT!! Total humiliation!

Nowadays kids seem a lot more likely to fess up about the fact that they masturbate, at least my kid does. I found an opened sample of baby shampoo in the boys’ room awhile back and the first thing out of my 13 year old’s mouth was “I WASN’T using that to jack off!!” Err….TMI son, TMI!!! LOL That never would have even OCCURRED to me if you’d kept your mouth shut!! Haha

2. I am in love with the SongPop game on Facebook. If I could design a perfect game that’s exactly what it would be like! I’m excelling in the Classic Rap, Classic RnB, Mowtown, and 80’s and 90’s music categories as well as doing pretty well with Duets, Funk and Soul. You know you wanna play me!! Nevermind that half the time when I’m playing I have LOUD kids in the background or people talking to me and distractions going on, I’m still killing it!! 😉

3. I’ve never been to a Karaoke bar. Never!! They were just starting to become popular back in the late 90’s while I was busy getting married to a man that was deeply involved in the church and ministry and totally against drinking or going to bars. There was no alcohol at my wedding (lame!!) He wouldn’t even go to movie theatres. We were that hardcore into conservative Christianity and we lived out in the middle of nowhere surrounded by Amish people. Someone needs to take me to one and soon!! 😀

4. When I lived near a secluded beach in Hawaii I used to sometimes hike up among the sand and rocks, strip off all my clothes and sunbathe or swim naked, fantasizing that some random hot guy would be watching and come along and fuck me. It never happened though! Where the hell are all the sexy strangers when you need them? 😉

5. I never went to my high school prom. I was having sex with a few different people but no one asked me. 😦 I guess they didn’t think of me as the type to take home to Mama. Plus, I didn’t have money for a dress. So instead I went to a three day music festival featuring local bands with a group of friends, managed to get in for free and had a crazy time. I’ll bet that was way more fun than a formal dance anyhow….

6. I taught Sunday School for years and Children’s Church and wrote and performed puppet shows and taught preschool and was a day camp counselor. My ex was in ministry and I homeschooled our kids. I’m like the queen of thrift and even used to make my own baby wipes and cleaning supplies and bread and tortillas and all sorts of stuff to save money. I’d bet you’d never guess I’d be the type to lead a secret life. Shhhhh……

Thing is that during that time, at least for the first 11 years of my marriage and the couple of years of dating my ex- husband before that, I WASN’T living a double life. I was faithful and beyond reproach, even though he wasn’t showing much interest in sex with me and even though I felt rejected and alone. I’m living proof that a ho CAN actually turn into a housewife….at least for awhile! I finally cheated ON my 11th Anniversary, a day that my ex -husband had refused sex with me anyway.

7. I ran away from home on my 14th Birthday, from my psychotic, crack smoking stepfather who had threatened to kill me with a gun. He was angry that I had been trying to tell people he was molesting my 6 year old sister. Someone had called the police after seeing him grab me and shove me onto the stairs and slap me across the face so I told them of his threat and he convinced them I was full of shit. They handed me a business card and told me he wasn’t allowed to make threats and to call if I had any more issues. So he unplugged all the phones in the house and sat in between the front and back door on the lower level of the house to prevent me from escaping.

I managed to climb out a second story bathroom window, hanging down and dropping from it to the ground below and made a run for my life. The cops never caught up with me though one time my stepfather came past a friend’s house where we were hiding alone and we stayed in a closet while he banged on the door and made threats, hoping he couldn’t see we were actually there. Eventually I turned myself in by going to school and was sent away to live with my father for a year and later with other relatives and my grandma but I never went back home to live with my mother. That’s just the tip of the iceberg. I could fill a book with true tales from my childhood that would make a great Lifetime movie.
