Friday Fragments on Wednesday (I'm a rebel like that!)

We have friends coming to visit, Thursday throught the weekend, from Kansas City so I will be AWOL for a few days.  I don't have a cohesive blog in my thoughts, but I do have lots of little stuff, so I thought I would turn in my Friday Fragments a little early.  If only I had been so committed to my studies!
  • I am so excited to see our friends from KC.  I haven't seen Stephanie and her kids since June and we haven't seen her husband since we moved.  Stephanie and I trained and walked the two Breast Cancer 3 Day walks together.  When you train for hours on end and then spend three solid days together - walking, eating, camping, crying in pain and emotion - there isn't much you don't tell one another.  I think I might know her better than I know myself!
  • While our friends are here, we'll be seeing some of the sights of Cincy.  Places we haven't been to since BEFORE we moved from Cincy in 2004.  Now that we are back, we just haven't gotten around to it.  My kids are excited because they are going to miss school to do some fun stuff!  The adults are excited - we are going to an adults only meal at a nice, yummy restaurant with a beautiful view of Cincy.
  • I'm not overly thrilled with the election turnout in Ohio.  I am not interested in casinos.  I don't mind gambling and it's not against my religion.  I think we've already established that I am a heathen by some people's standards.  I just don't personally gamble and don't need or want it here.  It's a business I don't trust and I don't think it will benefit our state the way they are promising.  I didn't care to see the Livestock Standards pass.  All of the animal rights activists were saying it was bad for the animals, good for the farmers.  I'm happy our Veteran's Compensation Program passed.  And I am THRILLED this one CRAZY woman is off of our local school board.  I could write an entire post about her and probably find the videos of school board meetings to post just to prove my point that the woman is W-A-C-K-Y..
  • I almost dry heave when CJ eats a pickle spear with a PB&J sandwich.  I can't think of two things that go together less.  Blech.
  • I get nervous every time I have a new male client.  It's true.  I'm always afraid it will be some pervert.  Thankfully, that has only happened to me once and it was when I worked somewhere different than now.
  • If you've followed Stellan's story but haven't check in there lately, he is a very sick little boy.  He will be going to Boston later this week for a very risky heart surgery.  You can read his mom's blog here.


  1. I think pickles can go with anything :)

    I would feel a bit weird working on a male, glad you only had one pervy one. It don't take much for a male to rev his engine if you know what I mean LOL

    Have fun with your friends and enjoy your adult only meal :)

  2. I do love me a good dill pickle but not with PB&J LOL

    Hope you have a wonderful time with your friends

  3. I think that's so interesting that you get nervous with a new male client. I would expect it to be the other way around. I'm always nervous when I get a massage or a haircut or something like that.

  4. I would be afraid a new client would be a pervert too, male or female! :)

  5. I hope you have a great time with your friends...I am sure you will. Friendship like that is so sweet. "you know her better than you know yourself". Profound.

    (hey, I have stuff on my blog for you. If it's not your thing, I totally get it.)

    Enjoy your trip!!

  6. Have a super wonderful time with your friends!! Ironic, I have a friend coming in town this weekend, from, wait for it...Cincinnati.

    Actually Covington, but I'm pretty sure it's the same place. Minus the different state and all.

    Have fun!!!

  7. I always feel weird about voting on local elections when I'm so far away from home... so I was a non-voter. I think I can't win *L* I feel guilty if I do and guilty if I don't!

    Have fun with your friends =D

  8. Although I would NEVER eat a pickle with PB&J, my mouth started watering after that fragment!

    There are some real loonies in public office. It's a wonder how they get there, but I think apathetic voters are the cause.

    Hope you and your friends had a ball :)

  9. Just an SSS'er visiting around. Hope you had a great weekend with your friends!

    I like pickles and PB, minus the jelly.:-)
