Hi Kim, I was tagged and thought of you :o), now your tagged.

Kim Stagliano said...

Tammie - my love. My darling fellow blogger. Oh how I hate tags! But I like you - so I will do some of the tag.

Michelle O'Neil put out an SOS for my family last month that allowed me to keep my girls on track. That was most humbling and I appreciate everyone's help more than I can say. I'm planning my way of paying it forward.

I won't tag anyone forward - but I will play! So there's my info.

Wow Kim, I'd love to be there, but I'm having another hip replacement next week. You're going to be great, as usual, I'm sure. Maybe if it's taped you can provide a link?

Kim Stagliano said...

Oh, Polly! "Another?" I'll be thinking of you. Good luck.

I'll be at the ASCONN April 29th meeting with author Cammie McGovern in W. Hartford too. But I should think you'll still be mending at the end of the month.

Oh dear. Hip replacement. You're so young!! Good luck.

Thanks Kim, my osteoarthritis is the result of a bad car accident. The good thing is that our oldest, who was nine months old at the time, is fine, and I'll have my life back again after this new surgery. Meanwhile, link to what you can! I hate you speaking so close and having to miss it. Hopefully I'll catch you in person next time.

Kim,

Ah . . . correct my if I'm wrong but Ms. Chew is from "the other side" is she not ?

If so, you'll make sure to offer her a few words of wisdom . . . or a quick uppercut with you right . . . yes ?

Kim Stagliano said...

Well, Kristina and are both bloggers and autism Moms. And we're grown ups... We're in the book Embracing Autism together and happy to promote it. And while I might disagree wholeheartedly with much of what "the other side" has to say, at the end of the day, we both kiss children with autism goodnight every night. And that's what I try to focus on. I have no plans to bring boxing gloves.

Hope to meet you too, anonymous!

Very best wishes.

Hi, Kristina. See you Thursday. And as far as I know, I'm a reader - not MC! I don't even OWN puffy pants!

Oh I wish I could be there! It's tough to work the magic of a quick City trip on a weekday (since I already did it once in the last 12 months to see JER, I think I've met my quota.) I know you'll be great. And side note: I love reading Kristina's blog as well. Even though I don't always agree with every idea she has, it has given me insight and opened my mind to things I'd not thought of before. It's good to at hear all sides and I'm glad this event is including you both.

Have a blast! I hope to see pictures!

Why can't I live in NYC? I'm just 10 hours outside the border in Canada. Damn. I'd totally keep you company. Then we would go out for cosmopolitans afterwards.
