Friday Fragments

Well, well, dear followers and random readers from afar, it is Friday and you knwo what that means! FRIDAY FRAGMENTS!! And of course, I only link up the best so go visit Mrs. 4444! AFTER you read my fragments that is ;)

*So I woke up with a sore throat today. Figures...I'm going to be guzzling down some Emergen-C today that's for sure!

*We have experianced a friend pasing away last night. Abel worked with him on teh railroad and is still in shock about it. A mid-40s man who just lost his wife two years prior to cancer, raising 3 or 4 boys who only one has graduated from high school. These kids are on my mind and it hurts to think of them. Life sometimes seems cruel but we all have to understand that Christian or not, hard times or easy, there is ALWAYS a reason.

*We're adopting and I get word in a few days about my adoptee!! I'm totally pumped!! Oh wait a second, I'm sorry, we've adopted a soldier! LoL. Puh-lease? Another child in my house right now?? HAH! I think it's an awesome way of supporting our soldiers. That and they need goodies over there and why not spoil someone who is fighting for me? I encourage everyone to sign on! Uncle Sam wants YOU!!

*I'm on post 76 today. I am going to create a surprise for all my beautiful and wonderful followers for my 100th :) I don't have a thousand followers but it sure makes me feel good about the ones who are following me. Not everyone hangs around my blabbering nonsense for this long, haha.

*My daughter and my son are so fun to watch. Ater Ignacio's morning feeding I lay him on the floor on his blanket. Hannah has to have the same thing and they end up laying together. And then Hannah gets goofy and starts making Ignacio laugh (Or what we call his laugh) and they are just so comical together. I can see so much love flowing from them both and it touches my heart. Hannah will tell you, Ignacio is her best friend. Talk about awww! Think it'll survive the teenage years?? LoL!

*Ugh. So memo to self: Last night's dinner left in the microwave overnight does not, I repeat, does not do this house a favor when door is opened! And no amount of candles and Febreeze will take that smell away. LoL.

*Stress reiever: Playdoh in a ziplock baggy with all air removed. Cheap and easy.

Thanks Mrs.4444 for letting me hop on again and thank you readers for reading my quick bit of nonsense! Until next time....

Oooh! Hope your sore throat gets chased away quickly!

So sorry about your friend passing. My heart goes out to the kids.

What a cool idea to adopt a soldier! I'll check it out! :)

Closing in on 100 posts - good job! :)

Sounds like Ignacio and Hannah are fun to watch!! :)

What, pray tell, was dinner left in the microwave that caused a big stink? ;)

Great idea on the stress-reliever...wonder how long it would be before Princess Nagger steals the play-do if I did that? ;)

Happy FF! :)

James was "adopted" when he was in Iraq. He says it was awesome, so way to go!

I am sorry about the passing of your friend.

Me said...

playdoh in a zippy bag? I want me some! I'm gonna go buy some. If I can ever get my husband out of bed so I can drive him to work and run my errands.

Playdoh in a zippy bag sounds like heaven. Actually, this Pregnant Lady just got the craziest urge to open the zippy bag and squish it through her fingers. Huh. Apparently I talk about myself in the third person. Have a good day!

Mama Kat said...

I'd prefer playdough in a zip loc bag too...I hate the feeling of the stuff!

And SO sad about your friend who lost his life. :( I feel awful for his kids!!

Confessions Of A Working Mom said...

I love your play-doh-in-a-bag idea... LOVE IT! I am going to have to try that... I definitely need stress relief from my day!


Just A Mom (Call me JAM for short) said...

Uh oh! Lots of fluids and vitamin C. Mom's can hardly afford to get sick!

I'm so sorry to hear about your friend passing away. My thoughts and prayers are with his children right now.

Woo hoo on heading in on 100 posts! Hope you are having a fun time writing them!

I'm stopping by from Ann's VGNO to say hello. Hope you have a great weekend!

Eve said...

Ooh - hope you feel better soon!

Thanks so much for the tip about adopting a soldier. What a fantastic idea!!

Oh, I feel your pain... I left chili out on the counter overnight last week. It smells wonderful while cooking, but it might be the worst smell ever when left out for several hours!!

Justine said...

How the hell did you leave dinner in the microwave? Why didn't you eat it?

Sorry to hear you've got a sore throat... hopefully it's just a little cold or something.

You scared me for a second with the adoption thing! I think that's an awesome idea!

Justine :o )

Happy VGNO!

So sorry about your friend- so young, too.

I love playdoh, so it would have to come out of the bag!

Unknown Mami said...

I hope you and your adoptee are a perfect fit.

Feel better soon.

Kat said...

Finally stopping by for a VERY belated VGNO!

I really love that Adopt-a-Soldier idea. It sounds like something our homeroom at school could do. We could write him, etc. Thanks for the idea!

So sorry about your friend. Sounds like he and his boys have had it tough. I'll keep the boys in my prayers tonight.
