It's been awhile but here they are....Friday Fragments
Friday Fragments are those bits and pieces in your day/week/month that aren't deserving of a full post. Although my tend to get lengthy, haha. Head over to Mrs. 4444's page and check out her fragments as well as the fragments of the blogging community!
*Have I mentioned that I'm scared of the ginormous tree in the back yard falling down? Because if I haven't...I. am. really. scared. Especially since it's been raining buckets and the tree is no longer alive. The tree people were supposed to come on Monday but couldn't because they had a death in the family. Who knows when they will come now, I still haven't heard back. GRRRR...but I'll try to see the positive....the ground is so saturated they would have ruined our grass if they came this week. There, sometimes it feels good to be Pollyanna.
**Ok, now for something that sort of ticked me off. Let me preface by saying I believe in karma. I was going to get some lunch earlier and very courteously let some dude pulling out of the gas station in front of me. He didn't wave a thank you in my direction...grr....that makes me so mad. I ALWAYS wave if someone is nice enough to let me pull out or get over. Since I believe in karma I think that at some point this man will be in a similar situation except there will not be anyone nice around to let him pull out. And he'll just have to wait. Hmmph.
***I saw the biggest slug I have ever seen on our siding the other night. I took pictures, but forgot to bring my camera to work so you'll just have to trust me that this thing was HUGE! When I first saw it I thought it was a leaf and was about to brush it off with my hand. Luckily I looked closer before swiping or I think I would be scarred for life. I got queasy moving it off the siding with a stick. So now we know, slugs can be added to the list of things that make my insides squirm.
****I love reality tv. Not just the obvious ones either. I love the TLC shows like 18 Kids and Counting, Baby Story, Toddlers and Tiaras, Bringing Home Baby, etc. Well I had dvr'd Toddlers and Tiaras and watched last night. OMG! It might have been the best T&T I've ever seen! If you don't know anything about the show the cameras basically follow 2 or 3 kids and their parents throughout a pageant process. It's can be pretty hilarious and Wednesday's episode proved no different. There was a five or six year old little girl Makynli who was adorable and had a very southern accent, there was a ten or twelve year old girl named Tootie(her pageant name/alter ego; her real name is Madison) whose mom repeatedly yelled out "Work IT Tootie!" in a similar southern drawl, and then there was Taylor who was four and hadn't been doing pageants long, she was my favorite and you'll see why. Taylor couldn't skip and they showed her at dance class trying her darndest to skip and let's just say this I have sinced watched that clip about five times. Instead of moving her legs forwards and backwards she would move them side to side. Her mom and the dance teacher(who have both shown Taylor the correct way to skip) were getting a kick out of watching her and her mom even said that she hoped that Taylor never learned to skip the correct way because the way she does it now was cute and hilarious. Bahaha. Taylor's mom was definitely the most down to earth out of the three moms probably because they had only been doing pageants for a year. Man, my sides hurt after that one. It was the perfect combination of adorable and hilarious. I love you reality tv, I really do.
*****I'm glad to be back in somewhat of a blogging groove. I think I've missed it. Actually I know I've missed it. A lot.
