Friday Fragments: Ultimate procrastination

Mommy's Idea

Oh, I have about a kajillion things to do today, but I'd much rather play in Mrs. 4444's Friday Fragment sandbox!

Mother's Day is Sunday. I got an e-mail from Laser Flash suggesting that Dad and the kids take Mom to their loud, frantic, sweaty place for laser tag and pizza to celebrate the occasion. Thanks, I'll pass.

*****************

Did you get your "free bagel and shmear" coupon from the Einstein Bagel Facebook page? I bribed the kids this morning that if they got up and got ready quickly, we could stop at Einstein before school. I gave each kid their own coupon and I bought the drinks. The guy at the counter didn't seem to happy about it. But happy, schmappy. I might have to go back for lunch soon to try out the new turkey-bacon-avocado bagel thin sandwich. It looks really yummy!

*****************

When I'm finished with Friday Frags, I want to go dig my garden. I have 3 tomato plants, 4 cilantro plants, 2 basil plants, 4 pepper plants and 2 strawberry plants to go in. I hope to get it all done this weekend.

*****************

I cannot wait for school to be over. Charlie's teacher just assigned ANOTHER science project. We just finished a big, took-3-days-to-do-the-experiment-and-another-day-to-do-the-write-up science project. That one was on the effect of heat and cold on popcorn kernels. For this one, he's doing what kind of ice cream melts the fastest (premium, light, frozen yogurt, etc.). I figure eating the ice cream will be consolation for having to do a big project in the final weeks of school.

****************

The Go Red/Better U challenge officially wrapped up last night with a thank you party. It was so great to get to say thanks to all those people who helped us along the way.

***************

I saw a church sign -- you know those message board ones -- last week that has stuck in my head. It said "The safest place to be is within the will of God." I liked it so much that I wrote it out and stuck it on my computer monitor at work.

***************

Well, I think I'm all fragged out. Have a terrific weekend and enjoy Mother's Day, whether you're on the giving or receiving end.

Love that church sign! I'm committing that one to memory!

As for a science experiment involving ice cream...does it get any better than that? I would submit to you that it does NOT!

I am having my first garden this year. Had to start everything inside and they actually turned into plants. I have to wait until May 30th to put them outside it is still a bit too frosty at night..wish me luck! Happy Friday and Happy Mother's Day!

I think I'll pass on the Laser tag and pizza, too!

My son quoted that church sign message to me repeatedly both times he went to the Philippines on mission trips. :)

Happy Mother's Day, Amy!

Yeah, I'd pass on the laser tag too, though if Dad wanted to take the kids there by himself and leave me at home in the peace and quiet that might be ok!

Good luck with the garden! I have an herb garden in my window and a pepper plant that is just starting to produce...oh and bunch of blueberry bushes that need to hurry up and get ripe!
I came over from Friday Fragments.
Happy Mother's Day!

The past couple of years I've tried to grow tomatoes on my balcony (and had minor success) but this year I'm going to be gone for two months so I just decided to skip it! I'll steal my mom's tomatoes this year instead *L*

I hate to tell you this about me because you seem to like me, but....

I can't grow anything. I kill plants. It's only through the combined efforts of Brian and the girls that we manage to have flowers outside all summer.

I'm jealous, we don't have Einstein Bagels down here!

Science project sounds about as fun as it can get.

I'm with Mimbles, a mom-less laser tag trip would be a great present, lol.
