Friday Fragments: Episode #185

Mommy's Idea

Friday Fragments are bits and pieces of our week that didn't make it into posts but are worth sharing. To learn more, click here and leave your fragment link on the linky for this post, and stop by to visit randomness from around the blog world.

***As you can see, I have a new header, and it makes me very happy. I had a slideshow header, but I was told that it caused my page to load as slow as molasses, so I took it down. (You're welcome.) For what it's worth, yes; it's my "favorite" tree, and I used the Cross Process feature of Google +'s photo editing feature (formerly Picnik).

***A 6th grade boy caught stealing today. He offered a couple of unbelievable explanations, and I said, "Really, it would be a lot easier to simply admit that you made a mistake in judgement and you regret it." He did. We had him call his mom and tell her what happen (He was bawling throughout.). Tonight, he sent a text to me (via Google Voice): "Im sorry I hope what i did dosint chang are frend ship."  Too cute.

***Losing a family pet sucks. Losing the pet on Valentines Day sucks, too. However, I'm glad that Mr.4444 and I were together with Cooper through it all. I'm certain it brought us closer, and we will never forget it.

***I really, really love my valentine. You might be amused to know that my ringtone for him is the 007 theme song from James Bond

***Even though all the dog toys/dishes/bedding has been put away, I think of Cooper several times a day, every time I drop a bit of food or crumbs. That stinks (and not just because it means I'll have to start vacuuming more regularly around here).

***My dear blogging friend Kristin recently said goodbye to her dear kitty, Mocha. One night afterwards, she put a pan in the kitchen sink to soak. In the morning, here is what she found (no lie):

I'll be watching for signs from Coop.

***While not a great example of people-first language, this article shares some really great parenting advice for parents of children with Aspergers Syndrome.

***I am so happy about the fact that I now have a list of blogger contacts all in one place. If you did not receive my email about the spreadsheet I created for collecting blog addresses and emails (Yea! No more wondering how to find a blog when the writer leaves a comment without a trail of breadcrumbs!), please email me, and I'll be very happy to hook you up!

Okay, here's the linky FOR FRIDAY FRAGMENT POST ONLY [read the directions if you're confused about that. All other posts will be deleted.]
