It's been a minute! But here they are...

Friday Fragments?

Friday Fragments! This little blog fragmenter is apparently one of my favorite things to do since I can't manage to post anything other than this little Friday post. Maybe next week I'll be able to crank out more than one post! Head on over to Mrs. Fours blog to check out her Friday Fragments and the Fragments of other lovely bloggers who link up. You won't be disappointed....I swear!

-I have been sick this week. I missed 3 days of work! I had all the flu symptoms but luckily I didn't have the flu! SHEW! It stinks being sick but only working on Monday and Friday is something I could really get used to.

-We had a great time in St. Louis. Our hotel was about 9-10 blocks from the dome so we just walked over instead of having to re-park our car. I debated for a good 30 minutes over whether or not to bring my camera (it's rather large and I didn't feel like lugging it around) and after debating decided not to bring it. Well, we get to the dome and OMG our seats are AWESOME! I was so pissed that I had left my camera that I walked quite quickly back to the parking garage, grabbed my camera, and walked/ran back to the dome and I made it in time for kick off! SCORE! I got some great shots and I'm very glad I decided to go back and get it. Plus, I got in my exercise for the day! I'll have to post pictures soon!

-A grasshopper hitched a ride on my car today. I thought for sure he would hop off when I stopped to get lunch but lo and behold he rode on my side mirror back to my office. He must be one strong grasshopper to be able to hold on at over 70 mph!

-While in St. Louis we went to one of the casinos there mainly because Mr. Ski had never been to a casino. We had a plan to only take $100 and when that was gone we were done. Mr. Ski proved to be much luckier than I was...he won $150 off of a PENNY slot machine! Woohoo! We made our money back plus $50!

-Special thanks goes out to the Illinois sheriff who only gave us a warning instead of a very expensive ticket on our way home Sunday night! Cops make me nervous and I'm not sure why. I shook for a solid 45 minutes after we were pulled over.

-I got bad test results. I'm not ready to dive into details but I will say that I am scared. Which is odd for me, usually I don't get scared over health stuff...having to have open heart surgery at 17 will do that to you...but this is different and I'm hoping, praying, and thinking positively that things are not as they appear.

-I hate it when truckers honk at me. I mean it didn't used to worry me because I thought they were just being dirty and honking at a young, cute girl but now I'm not so young or cute for that matter and it makes me paranoid that something is wrong with my car.

Finally, a little Mitch to start off the weekend:
"A waffle is a pancake with a syrup trap!" -Mitch Hedberg


  1. I will be sending up good thoughts regarding the test results, whatever they might be.

    Cops make me ner vous, too; I think for me it is a carryover from when I was drinking. The funny thing? I NEVER got pulled over when I was drinking, when I should have, but now that I don't? I get pulled over ALL the TIME. Must be my breasts. :)

    Hope you have a good weekend!

  2. You're in my thoughts with those test results. Keep us posted.

    Yay for actually winning money! I never seem to manage that...

  3. I will definitely pray for your health stuff, whatever it might be. God is a big God!
    Good deal on WINNING money! That's always a plus!
    My hubby is the one who usually gets pulled over... And likes to pull the Army "card". He's hilarious. ;)
    Have a fab weekend!

  4. Thinking good, positive things about the test results. I've been crazed with medical stuff lately and I'll put you on my list. :)

    I know how you feel about being pulled over. Freaks me out. I hate getting into trouble...

  5. Hooray for a fellow Gleek!! And I would LOVE to watch Buffy with you... if only I lived a little further north. In the meantime, hooray for the internet! I love it that we love similar shows :-) I've watched all of Angel, but only a few Buffy episodes.

  6. Thanks ladies for your support and good thoughts. It really means a lot to me! You guys rock!

  7. That medical stuff can be scary sometimes ... I'm thinking positive thoughts for you.

    I'm with you on the cops, thing, but some can be very nice (as you experienced).

  8. Hope you are feeling better! Glad you had a great time in St. Louis and really glad you got out of the ticket! Cops make me nervous too. :) Sorry to hear about your test results...praying for you! :)

  9. Thoughts and prayers headed your way! I'm here if you want to talk/vent!

    So glad you and hubby had a great mini-vakay. I can't wait to see the pictures!! You're going to post them, right? RIGHT!? lol

    Glad you're feeling better too. I know I could get used to working on Monday's and Friday's too! lol

  10. Glad you had fun in St. Louis. This game tonight is making me ILL! I could cry....

    You had luck at the casino, luck with the trooper, and assuming that luck comes in threes, I'm hoping for a good outcome on that test. Hugs to you, my friend.
