Monday Mumblings

I didn't get to unload many fragments on Friday, so I'm taking the opportunity to do so today.

***I'm still stick. It's been a week now. I did see a doctor on Friday, and she said it's just a really good cold. If you missed my very, very important Public Service Announcement on netipots, please be sure to read it--It's a matter of life and death (seriously).

***I've had my Motorola Atrix 2 for about two weeks now. It's nice, but I'm not sure I'm going to keep it.  I'm just not impressed by the camera; what's the point of zoom if you can't focus?  Maybe I need to keep playing with it.

***If you've still got wrapping to do and are thinking about buying this false promise, don't do it; it's useless.

***I'm behind in my holiday baking. I hope to get some krumkake made today or tomorrow.  I'm pretty sure that the snowman cake pops I was planning are out of the question.

***I've worn professionally-made orthotics for more than 20 years. I wasn't sure what to expect when I won a pair of the Dr. Scholl's custom-fit orthotics (Thanks, Unknown Mami!), and I'm happy to say that I absolutely love them and would recommend them as a great gift. The first day that I wore mine (a few weeks ago), I wore them Christmas shopping for 12 straight hours (No, I'm not kidding.) and my feet felt terrific the entire day, as well as the days that followed. I've switched out my old ones for these. I'm not sure how long they last, since they're not hard plastic, but I do love them.

***Since Friday is so close to Christmas Eve, I may have fewer Friday Fragments, but I will put the link up (in case you're wondering).

***I've just started reading an excellent book on parenting, called Raising Our Children, Raising Ourselves, by Naomi Aldort. I rarely read hard-copy books, but I usually finish one over the holidays, and I'm really looking forward to this one; it's really a standout so far.

***It's a rare thing for me to go to bed before 10pm, but tonight, I'm going for it! Four days of school for us this week. My plan is to get well before the break gets here!  If I don't "see" you before the new year, I wish you a beautiful Christmas and/or Hanukkah with your family.

***[I'd add "Kwanza," but I'm not really sure anyone but Hallmark celebrates it.]  Melisa, I'm sure you'll let me know, living in the big city and all :) I look forward to your input.

Have a great Monday!!
