Back to Fraggin'

Half-Past Kissin' Time

~  It feels GREAT to participate in the Frags again.  I feel like I've been writing about my trip forever.

~  We're finishing up the 2nd week of school already.  7 more weeks until Fall Break.

~  Things are crazy at one of my schools:  this is the first year we've had a Special Ed Preschool.  Those kids are just adorable, but having that class is reeking havoc on my schedule.  As in, no breaks on Wednesday.  It's not like I've never done that's just been a few years.  I'm getting too old for this!  

~  Did you know there is a "Law and Order UK"?  You know how the detectives on the American ones sound so intimidating?  Yeah...there's something about that British accent that doesn't make them sound so tough.

~  I came home to this:
CH & I bought this on Sunday, and it was installed today.  Our dishwasher & our garbage disposal decided to go out at the same time.  The dishwasher was 9 years old, and it was a "less expensive" one.

~  This commercial was shot in the Small Town.  If you're a Packers fan, you may recognize the man in the video below.  He worked extremely hard to get where he is, and he's stayed very humble.  He's given back to the community by giving free football camps to the youth, and sponsoring a program at the elementary school to give kids backpacks with food so they'll have something to eat over weekends.  One thing about this video:  when he's running near the tracks, it gave me the impression that it was the middle of town, and that town is kind of deserted and run down, which isn't the case at all!

~Since I'm finally finished with my posts from the trip, I'll be getting back to the every day life in the Small Town!


  1. What a great video!! He seems like a great guy.
    You are having fall break soon and we don't start school until next week! :)
    Enjoy your weekend.

  2. I love the ad-what a great guy! I'm gonna share that video with hubs. Have a nice weekend!

  3. I still have your last trip post to read. Already counting to Fall break, that is so funny. Hooray for the new dishwasher. Enjoy your weekend.

  4. I'm always startled when I read that you're finishing your second week of school. Although I don't teach anymore I've always been used to going back for teacher days the end of August and starting school by Labor Day. Didn't know that there was a Law and Order UK! My favorite is Law and Order SVU.

  5. They have a way of making things not look like they are.. during the KY Derby, they make Churchill Downs look so beautiful, when I think it looks so dirty & trashy all the time. The power of TV media :)

  6. If you live in Wisconsin, which I do, you know who Randall Cobb is!!!

  7. What a fantastic commercial ... thanks for sharing.

    Yay for a new dishwasher.

    Hard to believe that you're in the second week of school ... but then it boggles my mind that it's already the 2nd half of August, not the 2nd half of June!

  8. Wow! We don't go back to school for another week. Though we do not have a Fall Break so I guess it all works out.
    Have a great Sunday!
