First Friday Fragments 2012

Mommy's Idea
Friday Fragments is a good way to write quick thoughts when there just isn't enough for a whole post.   Mrs. 4444 describes it this way:  
"Friday Fragments are bits and pieces of your week that are usually brief; too short for a stand-alone post, but too good to discard. Collect humorous observations, "Heard" items, and other small gems (hint: a notebook is helpful :) and put them together in a Friday Fragments post. Then leave a link to your Friday Fragments post with Linky Tools and link back to my main page in your post (please)."

~  Friday ALREADY?  1 week down, 8 more to go until Spring Break!  Although it's still winter when we have it.  Make sense, huh?

~  I wanted to do something fun (and cheap) with my students to make it through this week before we really got back into the grind.  Here's what we did:
I got the idea from my nephew's wife, then I found it on Pinterest.

~ Isn't it amazing what you can find on Pinterest?  It's like a whole new world!

~  We had some flurries Monday night, but that was about it:
Not much, huh?  And it was all gone when I went to work in the morning.

~  Wednesday night apparently was rough on CH & me:  I woke up around 2:00 having pulled a muscle in my neck when I turned over.  It hurt so much that I got up and put an ice pack on it.  Then, when I was leaving, CH accused me of hitting him in the leg with a baseball.  (Apparently he was still asleep.)  I must've pulled that muscle throwing the baseball to him.

~  We upgraded our cable and now get the Military Channel.  Oh joy of joys.  *sarcasm*  CH is in heaven.  

~Downton Abbey has a new season starting on Sunday on PBS.  If you liked "Upstairs, Downstairs", you'll like Downton Abbey. 

~  Today is Epiphany:  the official end of the Christmas season.  If I had decorated this year, the house would be "De-Christmased" this weekend.


  1. My 81 year old mom loves to watch the Military Channel. I find that funny : ) I often have 'sleep injuries' Pinterest is awesome!

  2. I may have to do Friday Fragments ... I often have bits and pieces that are too short to stand on their own. Or maybe I'm just the queen of random. ha!

    I wish we could get some snow (but more than flurries that are gone the next morning - ha!).

    Military Channel? What will they think of next?

  3. I know just what your sarcasm is...Military Channel....boring!!!!!

    I've been hearing/reading a lot about this Pinterest and have yet to find out what it is...I do need to crawl out from under my rock...huh?

    And swinging a baseball bat'll get that neck spasm a'going each time!!


  4. I just discovered Downton Abbey and I am very excited about the premiere of Season 2. I will be watching and/or recording.

  5. I have seen several people who are taking down their decorations now.
    I love Pinterest. Is that the donut one, too cute!

  6. Mine will be de-Christmased this weekend. Loved the little snowman. Too cute. Hope your week back was good. I am tired already. Bring on Spring Break.

  7. Yet another fan of Downton Abby!! Just watching now online and loving it!

    Tree still up, because I'm lazy and would rather stamp, lol!!!!

  8. Oh crimey - my hubby is a military channel junkie. Just plenty of reason to wander off and do something else.

  9. Is winter super mild where you live too? It is crazy! And oh shoot, I think we're going to have to take down the Christmas stuff this weekend. Sigh...

  10. What a GREAT little snow-dough-boy!!! I think I might borrow (steal?) this idea to do with my Wednesday night class at church.

  11. Started de-Christmas-ing yesterday! Today, I just can't seem to get motivated!

  12. Have not de-christmased yet. Going to do that at church in a few minutes. I haven't tasted the pinterest KoolAid yet

    As for the aches and's tough aging, isn't it? When youngish yourself sleeping....sigh.
