Friday Fragments: It's All Good

Mommy's Idea

Time once again for Friday Fragments, courtesy of Mrs.4444. Check out her site for more editions of FF. I'm cranking this one out on my lunch break at the office, so no fancy frog stuff today. Deal with it (please).

In case you missed yesterday's post, my husband was downsized yesterday. That sucks. What doesn't suck is the amount of people who've contacted him with freelance or part-time opportunities to help fill the void. God is GOOD, people, I'll tell you that.

I had my follow-up appointment with the cardiologist for the Better U challenge on Wednesday. I've lost 12.2 pounds since December 9 and 3 inches off my waist. Plus, she cut my blood pressure medication in half. Now that is GOOD!

Annie got a part in the school play. When she brought home the script, I was immediately transported back to high school drama club. GOOD memories. My first role was a 7yo girl who wanted to be a wrestler. Annie's is that of panicky chess club sponsor. And to think she didn't even want to try out.

Colts vs. Jets on Sunday. As Colts linebacker Clint Session said "We're the ones who got them (the Jets) into the playoffs and we're gonna be the ones who take them out." That's a GOOD plan.

Thinking about going out for Mexican for dinner tonight. There will be plenty of time to be frugal in our temporarily single-income household. But tonight a margarita sounds MUY BIEN to me!

Congrats on your successes so far with Better U. And the margarita sounds awesome right now!

Get that margarita and enjoy yourself...from one single income household to another!

I just popped over from Mrs.4444' place, so want to say hi is all!

Sorry that your husband was downsized........but the rest is all good!

Hope you have a great weekend!

Whoooaaaaa, congrats to Mike! That is such good news after yesterday's kick in the unmentionables. I must agree - God is good.

Congrats to you, Mrs. Awesome Weight Loser, and to Annie, perhaps the future Sarah Bernhardt.

Ahhh, margarita! Now you're speakin' my language.

Michelle said...

Congrats on your success!!

Sharon said...

Wow! A door closes, a window opens, right?

Congrats on the weight loss. I am so proud of you. Do you feel like in gaining control of your weight more, you're gaining more control in other areas of your life? I always felt that way.

And congrats to Mike for the work opportunities! What a relief. :)
How exciting for your daughter, too. I hope she really enjoys it.

Hope the adult beverage was worthy!

It was certainly interesting for me to read that post. Thank you for it. I like such topics and anything that is connected to this matter. BTW, try to add some images :).

Congratulations on the weight loss! 12 lbs would be awesome no matter what, but CHRISTMAS and NEW YEAR's were included in your time period. (Most of us GAIN that much over the holidays - so think of it as a 24 lb loss, haha) You are doing great! Thanks for being such an inspiration and sharing your journey on your blog.

Congrats on the weight loss! That's fantastic! :)

Janet said...

Way to go on the weight and inch loss :-) I don't have any weight to lose (thanks to good genes), but I am way out of shape. You are inspiring me to keep up the Wii Fit.

So are your pants falling off these days?

Mrs4444 said...

Wow. Just the decrease in blood pressure meds must be so empowering--Good for you!

Like they say, When God closes a door, he sometimes opens a window. I'm glad your husband has options.

Hurray for Annie!

Thanks for joining FF last week :)
