Friday Fragments, Episode #79



How can it be that I'm on my 79th installment of Friday Fragments and find myself fresh out of random thoughts?! I've been crazy, crazy busy with work--that's how. Here's what I've got to offer on the fly...

***I'm thinking I might catch my breath finally, this weekend. Expect to see me at your place to catch up.

***This weekend is the "Sno-Ball" at Tinytown High School. Thankfully, I have not been asked to chaperon this year!!  That means I'll get to cuddle up with Mr.4444 that night and maybe help him nurse his sinus infection.  Kendall is going to the dance (she'll meet her date there), and Kyle is having a bunch of friends over to hang out at our house, instead. (I guess seniors are too cool for SnoBall.)  Something tells me I'll get some nice pics this weekend.

***I'm planning a giveaway to show my appreciation for the friends I've made through blogging and to say thanks for stopping by to bring me virtual potluck meals and hugs lately.  So far, I have a cookbook to offer; it's a wonderful family treasure of mine, as it has recipes, but also stories about my mom and her siblings.  If you would like to offer a prize to the giveaway treasure trove, let me know, and I'll happily add it to the fun :) Oh, and entering my giveaway will be SIMPLE; a comment will be all you need to enter (I appreciate you so much, I'm not going to make you work for it :)

***I could really relate with this "gratitude" fragment from Caution Flag last week...

"....that the Christmas wreath in my family room looks good with Valentine's Day tinsel on it and will look even better with St. Patrick's Day tinsel."

I can relate because my nativity scene is still sitting on my coffee table, and I simply cannot find the time to put it away. (On the bright side, I love it.)  At least the tree is down.


***Okay, it's 11:32 on a school night, and I've FINALLY gotten MckLinky to work!! You know what to do! [To learn more about Friday Fragments and figure out how to join in the fun, click on the button above or here.]

  5. You are so busy even on a down week-end!! I'm going to do my best to catch-up on your sleep for YOU!

    One of our quests this week-end is a Snowcoming dress. These moments are sweet, aren't they?

  6. A Sno-Ball - how fun!! Good luck with catching your breath and getting some cuddle time this weekend. Sounds like the perfect weekend!

    I still have my tree up - at least the decorations are off of it. I've been tempted to decorated it with Valentine's Day stuff and leave it up until February 15th. But it will probably be coming down this weekend. Maybe. ;)

  13. No tree here, but I still have Christmas cards hanging on the door. They are driving my husband crazy, but I just keep forgetting to take them down.....for example, I am thinking about doing it now, but I won't because I am too busy commenting on your blog :)

    I definitely want in on that giveaway! What a great idea.

  19. I think the best thing for a sinus infection is some cuddling! Funny the Christmas Deco comment: I just asked hubby, if I could just hang red and pink hearts on our silver christmas tree, and then green Shamrocks, and so on... Of course, he said "no" so down it came.

  21. Glad you get a weekend to relax!! I JUST took down our Christmas tree yesterday. In all fairness, it didn't go up until the week of Christmas, so i don't feel too bad!
