Friday Fragments

Mommy's Idea

The post that is one of my favorites occurs every Friday. I get to sit down and pull together all those random scraps of paper, voice-recordings (I love smart phones) and virtual post-it notes together for Friday Fragments! Head over to Mrs. 4444's blog Half Past Kissin' Time to get all the fun facts about this Friday blogging fun! :) She will love to have you (assuming you're willing to abide by very simple guidelines :) and I can say with full confidence that Mrs. 4444's is a remarkable woman. She's awesome. Period.

  • I tend to 'call out' specific cars by their given name when they do something especially dangerous or irritating. For instance today it was: "Watch it Corrrolla." and "The gas is on the right Keea." (Clarification: The misspelling of the car names is intentional.) I feel that by calling them by their given name my anger is directed at someone versus the something they were doing badly.

  • I am having severe sciatic nerve issues. It's really been bothering me for the last two weeks and even a trip to the creepy chiropractor didn't help! It runs from my butt all the way to my right me when I say, it's uncomfortable and painful.

  • Have I ever mentioned why I think the chiropractor I see is creepy? If not, it deserves a whole post. There are way too many reasons he falls into the creepy category to list in a Friday Fragments post.

  • It's hard for me to even type this next sentence. I've struggled since "the incident" on whether or not to blog about it at all or keep it as my own (and Mr. Ski's) secret. But here goes...I plucked my very first chin hair while we were vacationing in Green Bay. Oh my gosh it was terrible. I discovered it while scratching my jaw and was a little confused. Like, what is this? It's not attached! IT'S ATTACHED. I promptly tweezed it but considering it's length I am afraid to know how long it had been there. I was traumatized that a daze. I told Mr. Ski thinking he'd laugh but hoping he'd be comforting and he said..."So." Oh yeah, having chin hair is not a problem for YOU, he even encourages chin hair growth! And the female takes the short straw once again. Grr. Now I can't stop obsessing over it's regrowth. I feel my chin daily...waiting for it's return and it's removal. I will say that this is one of those times I'm grateful to have some natural blonde hair.

Wow...see that's why I stressed over blogging about it, I obviously am having serious issues with this whole getting older business. I have acne like a 13 year old and now chin hair. Great.

On a positive note....I'm super glad I get to spend the weekend with my love. :) He never fails to make me smile and frankly, that's nice to look forward to. I hope your weekend is splendid as well.


  1. I'm totally going to steal your calling out of cars. It seems so civilized to me.

  2. You're so funny. My heart goes out to you on the chin hair issue. Fortunately for me, I've have Kendall to keep my whiskers in check--She very lovingly yanks mine out whenever she sees one--She always has my back. Glad Mr.Ski could care less, but you might need to keep a pair of tweezers in the car (they're easier to see in natural light). Careful, though; you don't want someone calling you (or your truck) for sitting too long at a light!haha

    Sorry your back is hurting you!! That's tough. Please let me know if/when you blog about the creepy chiro.

  3. I am laughing about the chin hair only because I have a couple that I have to pluck on a regular basis. They're always in the same place too... I'm thinking I need some sort of chin-hair-follicle-killer.

    I hope your back will start feeling better soon. It sounds miserable.
