Friday Fragments: Episode #210
You'd think that with me having my summer "off," my mind would be completely relaxed and not cluttered at all, but that's simply not the case; I've got plenty of tidbits to unload today. Thanks for joining the fragmented fun! [For more on Friday Fragments, click on the tab above.]

***Kendall stayed over at camp last weekend. It's her last summer at camp, plus it was the camp's 75th anniversary celebration, so I couldn't argue, but that means I haven't seen her in almost two weeks! Fortunately, she invited me to come up for campfire tonight (families can visit, I guess), so Milo and I are roadtripping up there with Grandma 4444, too. I can't wait!
***Preseason football starts tonight for the Packers! GO TEAM!
***If you know why this bothered me, then we are kindred spirits, in the grammatical sense:
"After being declared schizophrenic and forcibly medicated for months, Jared Loughner's lawyers say he is ready...."
***If you haven't had enough of Milo videos, check out Milo and Winston: Canine Buddies, as it is absolutely adorable. Of course, they all are, but what can I say--the dog's adorable! Also, I accidentally posted my reunion recap (with videos!) yesterday, instead of Saturday, so it looks like it's two-for-the-price-of-one day!
***I had a nightmare this week that Milo somehow got away from me and I was searching everywhere for him, in a huge apartment building in New York City (I think.) I just knew that whoever found him would keep him, so I wandered the halls, calling his name, hoping that he'd hear me and bark or something. I was so stressed out with worry! Finally, I heard him, ever so faintly, but there he was--right beside my bed, in his kennel, ready to get out. Makes me wonder if I'd been calling to him in my sleep. Regardless, I'm glad he woke me up.
***I read about one of the weirdest mother-in-law stories this week on Babble. A young mother found her MIL offering her breast to her baby (to comfort him) in the middle of the night. Click the link if you're curious.
***I went to a Tupperware party this week (It's been years since I was at one, and I was curious.) and found so many great products to buy that I'm going to have a "virtual" party on Tuesday or Wednesday, through August 26th. Stop by and see what you could win just for placing an order.
Although I'm back working (and still crazy-busy with the puppy stuff), I hope to catch up with you soon!
1pm Friday--I've switched back to Blogger for commenting until Disqus solves its issues on my blog. I don't know why most of you aren't having the same problem. All I know is that I don't have time to figure it out. Thanks!
