B is for BeHatzlacha (Good Luck)

Although RaggedyMom didn't make it into the top two to qualify, it was an honor just to be nominated :) Thanks for the votes, guys, and I know we all got a look at some interesting blogs out there. Thank you to the organizers!

Here at RaggedyMom, things are usually fairly low-key and understated. I do what I do, and I think that for those who visit, read, and comment, we have a good time together.

I'm not a former grade-school macher, student body president, or team captain. Except for a brief, spoofed stint as "Communist Party Leader" of my high school, which as I've mentioned before, is a convoluted story for another day. Also, I think I acted as captain of the school trivia bowl team when the regular captain was sick. Otherwise, I've been a mostly 'behind the music' kinda gal.

But I was nominated for a JIB Award this year in the Best New Blog category, and I'm still blushing! Go Group B! And it's full of some other blogs I hadn't seen before, which makes for some interesting reading.

Until now, the only thing I associated with the term "Group B" was the test that the obstetrician does for Group B Strep a few weeks before a woman's due date. Now, it will forever be immortalized as my brief moment in the sun.

WooHoo! You go Raggedy Mom!

We're rooting for you on this side of the ocean...

PS: Were you head of the communist party because you were a redhead?

Thanks, Jameel! We're rooting for you in Queens! And I'm so glad that I can read your blog these days without it turning into lines!

Being a gingi certainly may have influenced my political leanings back in the day.

And for the record, I still AM a redhead, even if only RaggedyDad gets to see it! :)
