Friday Fragments, Episode #114
Hooray! It's time for Friday Fragments! time to unload all of those miscellaneous thought scraps from your week. I'm glad you're here. [First timers, learn more about FF by clicking on the FF tab in my header.]
***It's not really Friday as I type this, but since I don't have students tomorrow, it feels like one. Today was a hell of a day, with screaming, crying, spitting, shoving, head-banging, and restraint (not all the same student). Is there a full moon? I could only feel sympathy for these kids; can you imagine feeling so-out-of control?
***Florence Henderson--Isn't she inspiring on DWTS? Seventy-six years old, and she looks and dances better than many women a lot younger than she is! Bristol danced as well as a pine tree (my humble opinion) on the first night, but I think she's made excellent progress! I'm enjoying this new season.
***And speaking of new seasons, GLEE! (Need I say more?)
***My Favorite Friday Fragmenter from last week is Cyndie, of Putting the Fun in Dysfunctional, who wrote about making her son another birthday cake (the Dinosaur Dig Cake!):
It looks really easy, and Andrew will LOVE it!
Especially because the dog at the cake we had for his birthday dinner on Monday.
I thought I had put it out of her reach, but I guess I underestimated her! WOOPS
I told Andrew, "Hey, if it makes you feel any better, she ate my birthday cake, too!"
If you're a regular reader (which means you've forgiven me for not visiting lately--God BLESS you), you know why I loved that fragment. Thanks, Cyndie!!
***One of our favorite nieces is coming (from California) to visit this weekend. She and her wonderful husband will just be here two days, so we will pack in a lot of chillin' and catching up. We haven't seen them in years--I'm so excited!
***A few weeks ago, when Mr.4444 was especially missing Kyle and worrying like a typical dad, he said,
"I know you have to let them fly out of the nest, but there are a lot of hawks out there!" So sweet. Our little bird called this week with exciting news--He got his ears pierced! (Who knew hawks travelled with needles?!) Kyle says the pierced ears have made him a real "chick magnet." He also joined a fraternity (the good kind) and is attending a leadership training this weekend. I'm not worried; he's an eagle, remember? :)
Now's your chance to unload your own fragments. Link up below and be sure to visit some old and new freinds! [Sorry--FRIDAY FRAGMENTS posts only. Others will be deleted.]
