***Don't know how, but I forgot to mention my Mother's Day Gift. I had told Mr.4444 that the only gift I wanted was a clean house. So...while I was gone the night before MD, he and the kids cleaned like crazy! The result was fantastic. The kids were apparently on their hands and knees, scrubbing the kitchen floor (wish I had a picture of that!) They even cleaned their bedrooms. Best gift EVER. (Best husband/kids ever!) Ask me what it looks like now...
***Not to be mean or anything, but I really do not appreciate automated responses to comments I leave on other blogs. I just don't think it's proper; if you can't send a personal message (which is fine, really; it's not a big deal), don't send something generic and impersonal. It does more harm than good, really.
***A shy hummingbird keeps debating whether or not to get a drink from the feeder just 3 feet from me (on the livingroom window.) When you feel like you're running around like a chicken with your head cut off (busy), take a gander at a hummingbird; it will make you feel slow.
***Molly is doing great! She went straight from ICU to her mom's house, where she is getting plenty of TLC and is already weaning herself off of the pain medication. Her doctors/nurses said she's recovering better than anyone they've seen go through the procedure, most likely because she is in great overall physical shape. (Must be nice.) Thanks for all of your prayers; they have made a difference, for sure.
***Up for some summer recipes? I've posted three recently at Mrs.4444 Cooks: Paula Deen's Red Potato Salad With Bacon, Beer Dip, and Black Bean Watchamahoosit. When you get there, don't worry; you haven't landed on someone else's beautiful blog; it's really mine. I'm just showcasing another one of Lena's FREE blog templates. It's Simply Fabulous!
***Here's my Favorite Friday Fragment from last week. It comes from Smellyann, who shared a comment made by her little girl:
Sophie to Chloë, after Jack went pee: "He can't wipe, because he has a penis in the way. He needs a vagina."
That, right there, is precious. So, Smellyann, the award goes to you this week. Nicely done.***I agree with John Stossel; people whose own stupidity causes them to require emergency services should be required to pay for those services. Here's one example.
***Can I just say that Dairy Queen ice cream cakes are the bomb?! (Certainly a gut-bomb when I don't take my Lactaid first, but WOW! Soooooo good.)
Here's Mr. Linky for your FRIDAY FRAGMENTS linking pleasure. Be sure to visit other fragmenters, too, please :)
