Friday Fragments

Mommy's Idea

Mrs. 4444 gives us the opportunity to wrap up the week in short little snippets, then go and catch up with everybody else!

~  CH bought me a new tablet last weekend.  We saw a Vizio Tablet that was on sale, so we went for it.  It's an Android.  No offense to you iPad/iPhone lovers, but it burns me up that one company can corner the market on something so cool.  I refuse to spend my own money on buying an apple product for myself.  (We won't discuss the iPhone that I bought OS for his birthday, so don't go there.)

~  I've found the joys of Words with Friends and Hanging with Friends.  I'm just learning, so during my first game with WWF I got my butt handed to me.  Then I got smart and found some "helper" sites online.  Yeah, I'm cheating, but, so what?  It's only 'til I get the hang of it, and it's with people I don't know, so it's like practicing, right?  I would never cheat with somebody I know!

~  The stomach bug is gone.  YAY!  It was rough, let me tell you.  I went back to work on Thurs. to find the principal and the nurse out, leaving the secretary by herself in the office. She had been out on Wed. with the bug.  Being the good friend I am, I shared my Ginger ale and peanut butter crackers with her, and we made it through the day.  

~  Aunt Flo decided to make her appearance yesterday.  Guess it could've been worse...she could've come knockin' a couple of days earlier to make me totally and completely miserable.  (TMI?)

~  The Small Town High School's football team is still in the playoffs.  They beat the #1 team in our quadrant 48-0 last Friday.  Tonight they play the team who was beat us for #1 in our district.  The other school has been playing football for 6 or 7 years, and this was the first time they beat us.  We've knocked them out of the playoffs for the past 5 or 6 years, so we'll see how it goes tonight.

~  Is everybody ready for Thanksgiving?  I haven't even started to think about it.  Guess I'll need to do that in the next day or two, huh?

Don't forget to head over to Mrs. 4444 and see how everybody's week was!


  1. Thanksgiving is easy for me, my sister cooks it, I just eat it.

  2. I ordered my Thanksgiving meal from a local market. It is just the 4 of us, and honestly....I need a break from cooking.

  3. we've already celebrated our Thanksgiving in Canada. I guess it's good because that gives me longer time between all the good food.

  4. Glad you're feeling better.

    OS will love the phone. No offense, I just feel like Apple is s popular because they just plain do it better.

    I think a lot about what I *should* be doing for Thanksgiving...that's about as far as I've gotten. *sigh*

  5. I need an updated phone so I can play Words with Friends. So happy for you on your new Android. Glad your feeling better. I think I am ready, at least I have my recipes printed and ready to go!

  6. Hello Mary, just stopping by to let you know I am looking forward to being pen pals. Woo-hoo!! ;) I'll be back soon to read some of your posts as I like to, without being rushed.
    In the meantime, enjoy a gorgeous weekend.
    Much love,

  7. That's great about your high school team--hope they win! I like pulling for the smaller schools.

    Glad you are feeling better.

  8. I have a Nook color, which is basically like an android tablet if you know what to do with it. I was really into WWF for a while, then stopped playing for whatever reason.

  9. Cheating by using "helps" is probably what all your friends are doing too. I've never played but I watch my kids cheat at it. I think that is part of the game. Have a great weekend.

  10. I think everyone cheats at those games. The winner is the person who is the best at cheating. Have a great weekend!

  11. Hope the team won their game! Glad you are feeling a bit better from that flu bug; not a good thing to have (but glad you didn't have it for Thanksgiving!)

    Going to brother's house for Thanksgiving so all I have to bring is a side dish, so preparations will be very easy!

    have a restful weekend


  12. Have a fantastic Thanksgiving, Mary!

  13. Thanksgiving has really snuck up on me, too!

    I would love a tablet (or smart phone), but I wouldn't mind buying the table ... I just can't bring myself to spend the money for the monthly service.

    Glad you're feeling better now!

  14. I refuse to buy an iPhone for the same reason (that, and the fact that I love my google apps too much to go Apple).

    I was playing WWF way too much when I first got into it; at one point, I was in TEN games. I've calmed down now and haven't even opened it in weeks. (I cheated, too.)
