Friday Fragments, Episode #130!
Welcome! Gather 'round the fireplace/fragment place--It's COLD out there! If our fragments were pieces of firewood, we could have one heck of a blaze (and after seeing the weather report, I'm thinking we'll need them!)
***It is so much easier to take winter when the football season gets stretched an extra 2-3 weeks. Thank you, Green Bay Packers! Our fireplace doesn't hurt, either. Right now, outside, it is five degrees F, with a windchill factor of 11 degrees below zero. The high tomorrow is supposed to be six degrees. Sadly, that's cold enough to get the dog to take care of his business in a hurry, but not cold enough to close school.
***It's been 13 years since the Packers played in the Super Bowl. Come Monday, all Packers fans will be either really, really happy or really, really bummed out. Go PACK!
***When I turned on my phone after school yesterday, I received a text from Mr.4444. It read, "I just got an x-ray. CT scan is scheduled for Friday. When I fell on the garage steps...I'm not worried about my back--I think I broke my f-in hand!" So, I was like What?! You fell on the steps? You're at the hospital?! WTH?!" I replied via text and tried to call him, but he didn't reply. Was he really in the hospital? Why didn't I know that he had fallen on the steps? When did this happen?! Fortunately, after several minutes, I remembered that when Mr.4444 had forwarded a text to me recently, it didn't show up as such. On a hunch, I called my SIL and learned that it indeed was a forwarded text, from Mr.4444's brother. (Mr.4444 had not replied because he was on an airplane.) Poor Bob!
***I have learned so much this week at work--Technology is an amazing, amazing thing, but keeping up with it is exhausting, isn't it? That said, I'm so excited to be learning Prezi, Jing, and getting my own LiveScribe Echo pen to use in the classroom. Now, if someone could just find a way to slow the speed on the Information Highway so that I could catch up a little, I'd appreciate it! Thanks.
***This has been one of the busiest work weeks I've had in months, really--Just one thing after another...busy-busy-busy. Nothing horrible at all, just an incredible number of commitments and tasks. I am so grateful for weekends! I hope that you, too, get some R&R this weekend. Why not start by unloading your own fragments and linking up here:
