Friday Fragments Folks!

Mommy's Idea

Wowsa! Is it already time for Friday Fragments?! This week has flown by (or at least the last couple days have). Friday Fragments is a collection of bits and pieces from the week that don't have the legs to stand alone. Mrs. 4444's is the mother of this project and she is awesome! Head over to her page, Half Past Kissin' Time, for all the rules and regulations (and the button!!). You can even post a link to your own Fragments!

*I got to catch up with one of my dearest friends last night. She and I have a very unique bond and even though there are some years between us and our situations are very different; we are as close as sisters. I love her dearly and if anyone in this world deserves the world it is her. She has been through so much and has been dealt a crappy hand more than once (even more than twice), but she always plays those cards to the best of her ability and is a hero in my book.

*Mr. Ski and I had to mortgage our home to pay for two pieces of art work to be framed recently. Ok, so we didn't really have to mortgage our home but when framing costs $500 WITH 60% already taken off that's a little ridiculous in my book. AND considering one of the pieces is in my backseat right now so I can take it BACK to the framer due to part of it coming off, I will NOT be a happy camper if they don't fix it for free.

*Today marks the 3rd day of the 40 Day Fitness Challenge. I woke early again, somewhat begrudgingly, and did my yoga. I was glad I did after it was over but I seriously considered snoozing for those 30 minutes instead. I even hit the snooze button once which usually means anything I had planned on doing won't get done; but not today! (I should admit that the main reason I got out of bed to do my 30 minutes this morning was because I didn't want to have to do 30 minutes after work! You know, since we're being honest and all!)

*Just found out that I will officially be attending the New Kids on the Block and Back Street Boys concert in June. SO EXCITED! Probably shouldn't be SO excited but I did rock an oversized NKOTB shirt (complete with neon pink "shirt holder") in 5th grade and Donnie was my "boyfriend" so I feel my excitement is warranted! I have a feeling the three of us (myself and two of my best girls) will be singing along the whole time. "Step by step/Oh Baby/Gonna get to you girl.............."

*And now for some numbers:
165 - Days since my last cigarette
$412.61 - Money saved since quit date.
6 days 21 hours - That, my friends, is the amount of time I have added to my life! Woohoo!
(Figures provided by the "Quit Now" app on my phone)

Hope your weekend is just what you needed this week.


  1. stopping from my FF browsing
    congrats on quitting smoking - it is worth it in so many ways. It is going on 30 years for me. My oldest adult daughter picked up the habit and recently broke her ankle very bad. Anyway I was with her at the doctor's office and picked up a brochure explaining how smoking delays the healing of your bones. Never thought about that problem.
    all the best

  2. Congratulations on quitting smoking! That is amazing! Those figures of money saved and time added to your life really puts things in perspective!

  3. That is awesome that you quit smoking- it is definitely a very expensive habit these days and obviously not all that healthy!

    I've instituted a new routine everyday that starts with meditation. It's made a big change in my life!

  4. You're a rock star :) I'm so proud of you!

    I hope you're going to share the artwork! I would love to see it.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  5. That's awesome about kicking the cancer sticks! Kudos for making yourself do yoga too... I struggled terribly this past weekend. Back to the grind today though :)
