I'm so happy it's Friday!!! I always look forward to unloading the random bits and pieces from my week that were too small to be stand-alone posts but too good to let go. It's the easiest, yet most satisfying post to write. I'm glad you joined me!
My heart is lighter tonight, having read so many encouraging, guilt-relieving responses to my What to Do post from Monday. Thank you so much; I can't tell you what a relief it was to read those. From now on, I'm going to remember the "100 Years From Now" sentiment and keep blogging in it's place.
There was some drama today at the high school; it had to be evacuated, and many students left their backpacks (and cellphones!) in the building. There are a lot of sad students at home tonight twiddling their thumbs!
My Favorite Friday Fragmenter last week was Unknown Mami, who wrote about one of the joys of having a preschooler at home:
She also claps for me when I go to the bathroom. She says, “Yay, Mama go caca!” It’s nice to have someone rooting for me and my bowels.
Thanks for the chuckle, U.M.! Enjoy your award!
Seen on a local gas pump:
"Drive away without paying for gas in Wisconsin and you can lose your driver's license!"
Really? Do they think people who steal gas actually care if they have driver's licenses or not? Instead, why not say, "Drive away without paying for gas in Wisconsin and lose your crack pipe!" or "Drive away without paying for gas in Wisconsin, and you will be forced to floss your teeth."
A wonderful parenting moment...On the ride home after school today, Kendall sincerely said, "One of the best things you ever did for me when I was growing up is buy me fun candy. You know--stuff like lip gloss shaped like ice cream cones, 'toothpaste' candy, suckers shaped like paint brushes that you could stick in a little bucket full of colored sugar...creative stuff like that." Well, then. I guess my work is done here.
That's it for me! Now it's your turn to unload the bits and pieces from your week and share them with the rest of us. (Sorry--random posts will be deleted.) HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!!
