Friday Fragments: Episode #195

Mommy's Idea

Welcome to Friday Fragments, where disconnected thoughts are applauded. Thanks for joining in. [To learn more about FF, click the link above.]

***In a blogging group on FB last week, someone asked "What is your biggest blog-reading pet peeve?  Overwhelmingly, responders said, "auto-playing music." The only other complaints were flashing ads and text color issues. (Just thought you might be interested.)

***I've coined a new word: endxiety ---That anxious feeling you get near the end of the show you're watching on your DVR, when you worry that the last minute will be cut off. (I know--It's perfect, right?!)

***I asked my doctor for some reading material on menopause, just so I know what to expect when the time comes (I know pretty much nothing about it.), and she gave me a booklet that makes it sound absolutely horrible! How do women survive it?! (or their husbands, for that matter, poor things!) Is it really that bad?!

***My birthday was very nice; Mr.4444 made Chicken Florentine Pasta for me and brought me a new computer! It's an "Ultrabook," meaning it's smaller, thinner, and faster but still has all the functionality of a typical laptop. I truly love that it weighs just over two pounds, but my favorite feature is the back-lit keyboard (The whole keyboard lights up when I press any key.)

***This was the longest school week ever, because Tuesday was incredibly exhausting. It would be nice if kids would create a schedule for acting up and stick to one kid per day.

***Thank goodness Karen Zemek is a patient person; she's still waiting for her cake pop prize, and it's taking me some time to get them made. Don't worry, though, Karen; they're going to be both beautiful and delicious, I promise! Thanks for your patience.

So...what's new with you? Link up your FRIDAY FRAGMENTS post below! (Sorry--Non-FF posts will be removed.)
