Congrats to the Graduates!

Just checking in quickly to share this snap from graduation lunch this weekend!
Alayna graduated in nursing but likes to remind us 
that she won't technically be a nurse until she passes her boards and gets her license;
 that said, we know she's going pass and go on to be an wonderful nurse. 

Kyle has a B.S. in Global Communications with a Spanish Minor.
He's looking for a "real" job and has irons in the fire but is also nurturing his startup company,
MajorWeb, which recently won a contract with a technical school! WOOT!

Congrats to you, Alayna and Kyle!!

Friday Fragments: Episode #331

Half-Past Kissin' Time

I'm dealing with a personal computer crisis! Feel free to link up below and I will try to get back her later to add my own fragments! Thanks for your understanding and good-computer vibes!!

Okay, I'm back. Shortly before my computer crashed, I recorded this for my fragments. 
Sorry the track's off in spots; it couldn't be helped.

P.S. Kendall did encourage me, and so did my Fitbit; I walked at 11pm for about 15 minutes and crashed (in bed) afterwards. Tonight (actual Friday), I came home from work and took a two-hour nap! Now I am off to get ready for the weekend. Thanks for checking in!!!

How Wisconsinites Make the Best of the Weather

Someone in Green Bay has been having a little fun this week!

Apparently, they think our fall weather has been abominable!

Friday Fragments: Episode #330

Half-Past Kissin' Time
Hello! How are you? How's your week going? Thanks for stopping by; it's great to hear from you.
Friday Fragments are the random pieces of our weeks that didn't quite make it into posts but that we didn't want to discard. Thanks for joining in!

***I haven't been posting much lately, and Kendall called me out on it. There's no reason for it, really; I just haven't had anything to say, I guess. Well, I did spend at least 25 hours, last weekend, working on a very special Christmas gift; I guess that interfered a bit with blogging. I've also been busy Christmas shopping.

***Like most people this time of year, I've been eating poorly and not getting enough exercise. I need some motivation. On the bright side, my rotator cuff recovery continues to go very well. I'm taking a prescription-strength, anti-inflammatory to tolerate our weather pattern shifts, but I'm getting stronger every day.

***Our Christmas tree is up, but it is bare; Mr.4444 insisted that we not put my "new" fake tree (bought last Christmas) up and instead get a real tree. When I asked when he is planning to put the lights on "his" tree, he acted shocked. Hello?! I told him last year that I was done putting lights on Christmas trees. Tune in next week to find out how we settle this.

***What do you call putting lights and ornaments on a Christmas tree? Trimming the tree? Decorating the tree? Something else? (Just curious.)

***Milo got a haircut and happily posed for me tonight.

This is how Steve feels about posing:
