Can you believe it's Friday already? I can. It's been a long, sickly week and I am happy to finally have my razor blade on-fire sore throat under control. Since it's Friday, that can only mean one thing. FRIDAY FRAGMENTS. This is the day for me to try to get those thoughts that are constantly swirling around my cluttered brain put into words and then flowing out my fingers onto the keyboard and into this blog. Visit Mrs. 4444 for people just like me.
First and foremost, if you have not checked out the Join the Parade link for Tuesday and the Whitt Family, either through my blog or another blog, please do so! Join the celebration, post your pictures on your site and submit your link to MWOB or Life, Liberty and the Pursuit... If you don't have a blog and want to share some pictures here, just e-mail them to me (e-mail available through my profile) and I will put them here and let everyone know they belong to you!
My BFF pointed out, and I had noticed, too, that in my picture on Saturday, the light switch is above my head. I am not a little person (though I am only 5' 3"). My five year old took the picture, so I squatted down to his level.
I broke the 20 comment barrier for one blog post! Up until I blogged about drugs, the most comments I had received is 19. Now I know what kind of readers I truly have! I must say though, I got some of my more entertaining comments regarding the Mama Drama posts (found here and here. Thanks a bunch. I LOVE comments and if you haven't commented recently or ever, please feel free to join in on the fun!
Michael Phelps, marijuana, a bong and a camera. Go figure. Really, why are people surprised? It's the 21st century and he's a young, college aged guy. I swear, of all the people I know, I don't think I could come up with more than five or so people who have not smoked pot. I just don't think it's that big of a deal. For adults, not teenagers! Hell, if he can travel the world, make millions and is old enough to go to war, I think he should be able to take a toke or two without so much criticism. Of course, I am the one who thinks gonja should be legal. I realize parents are using him as a role model for their kids. Sous Chef, being an aspiring swimmer, loved watching him in the Olympics. Sous Chef cheered as loud as anyone when Michael Phelps won that race that put him over the edge for the most gold medals won. But Michael Phelps didn't agree to be our kid's role model, so he is not required to live by the standards of the parents who put him on that pedestal for their kids.
A big thanks to GEORGIE who, through a week of e-mailing back and forth with me, talked me through a "tutorial" of how to find Blogger in Draft. Now I don't have to do that crazy equation for strikethroughs and my pictures go where my cursor is without screwing up all of my text spacing!
Did you hear the great news on the Today Show this week? They were doing a segment on aging and used twins to show how environmental and life choices can make you look older (ie: sun, smoking, etc.). I was so thrilled to hear that when you are over 40 yrs. old, having a little extra weight can actually make you look YOUNGER! The reason is because the fat in your face helps to fill in the lines and sunken areas where the collagen has been lost. Woo hoo! Finally some good news.
Our local meteorologists are at it again with their elementary level predictions. They predicted a dusting of snow on Tuesday. When I woke up from a nap, this is what I saw. Eight inches on top of about four inches left over from last week.
I am a 40 something chick, married (to Motorcycle Guy, AKA MG) and raising three boys (Big E, Sous Chef and CJ). We live in the burbs, which I am still adjusting to, even after 11+ years, and counting!
