Friday Fragments, Episode #141
As I type this, I am covered in...
never mind...I can't say, because Kendall might be snooping! It's Friday, I haven't really rested from last weekend's Relay business. As usual, though, I did take the time to record plenty of fragments this week.
***My Difference Makers and I (mostly the kids) raised more than $2125.00 for the Relay! Can you believe it? I'm pretty proud of them. I know I promised donors a little raffle prize of some sort; I want you to know that I haven't forgotten--I just haven't had the time to plan something nice, so stay tuned for that one.
***We have a friend whose idea of taking his wife to a "fancy restaurant" is taking her to R.L. (restaurant that rhymes wish "dead mobster). That cracks me up. The last two times I heard RL mentioned in casual conversation, the people said this, "We had dinner at R.L. last night, and it was actually good!" (It's like they feel like they have to apologize for going there or something.) I haven't been there in many years, but I'm tempted to go. They can't have been open this long if they aren't doing something right, right?
***Saturday is Kendall's 16th birthday party, and I am SO excited. Can't wait to tell you all about her party!
***Tonight is The Wizard of Oz musical at our middle school. Kendall and I are going. Yes, that's right--I have nothing better to do a day before a birthday party with 16 teenagers than sit on my butt for three hours. I'll just let the professional party planner take care of everything.
***No, I don't actually have a professional party planner lined up! I might be in trouble...
***A gem from Kendall:
"I think it would be really hard to poop and fly at the same time."
I heard this out of context (for just a second) and laughed right out loud. We were on our way to school at the time, and a flock of geese was flying by, returning from its southern migration. She followed it up with,
"Do you think they get out of line for a minute, poop, and get back in line? (Just so they don't accidentally splatter poop all over each other?)"
Yes, these are the types of mother-daughter talks Kendall and I have. I told her that I don't think geese have that high of standards for cleanliness, but of course, I could be wrong.
***To say that I've been busy lately would be like saying Nezzy is a good writer or Pioneer Woman takes nice pictures. I've truly taken on far too much for a normal person to take on, so after Kendall's party, I'm just going to concentrate on relaxing for a while. I can't wait!!!
I'm off to the musical! Here you go...for your linking pleasure.... Have a terrific weekend!
