I Blew It!

Boy, is my face red.

In yesterday's post, I left off one of the best entries in my Par-tay with Attitude Contest.

Deborah over at A Mountain of Weight to Lose wrote a fabulous post about ADHD: Attitude, Diligence, Habit and Determination. How could I have forgotten to list it yesterday? It was one of my favorites!

Deborah, a public apology goes out to you. I am so sorry, and I hope you can forgive my perimenopausal memory. I use the expression quite often these days of having a "Swiss cheese moment," when my head seems to be full of holes. Yesterday was a major Swiss cheese post! Please forgive me, and email me your address so I can send off a little nine-patch mini-mini quilt for you, as well (

I think they'll be a whole bunch of crow included with your prize!

How embarrassing! Please let me know if I've forgotten anyone else. And thank you, Cammy, for the gentle reminder.

Until next time...

It was no biggy. I just figured I didn't make it as an honorable mention.

Nicole said...

Awww! What a cute apology. I liked the adorable photos, too. :o)

Once again, I'm thanking you for your kind words. Thank you for taking the time to write that note today. :D

Cammy said...

Congrats to all the winners!

(I soooo identify with the 'swiss cheese moments'!)

Susie said...

I love your analogy of "swiss cheese moments" :)
That puppy is adorable!

Needled Mom said...

Don't you just hate it when your mind starts misfiring???? This was a very cute post and I am sure the apology is well accepted.

Lora said...

Gee Patti, we all have "swiss cheese" moments at our age! How ambitious you are - making all those mini quilts!

RunningNan said...

WOW.. That's what I'm going to call those moments from now on... Trust me.. I have plenty of them!

This is the first time I've read your the link from Kathy Calculates. Just finished reading your "meltdown" post. I'm a WW life-timer...lost 50 pounds, gained most of it back, so I identify with you and your frustration.

I'd like to suggest the book Intuitive Eating if you haven't already read it. It has helped me in a way nothing else has. I've done a little blogging about it recently too.

I got fat dieting in the first place, back in my 20's--I wasn't fat---just thought I was--dieting altered my relationship with food and ruined forever any peace with eating...30+ years later I'm still struggling. Intuitive Eating is the first thing that's ever made me think there is hope, beyond dieting, to finally achieve weight loss and maintenance.

BTW: the pet photos are adorable!

You are such a sweetie, Pattie! I have those swiss cheese moments, too. :0)
