Friday Fragments: The Late Show

Mommy's Idea

I'm a little slow on the Friday Fragments today. I'm sure our hostess, Mrs. 4444, won't mind. Hope you don't. When you're finished reading my frags, be sure to hop over to Half-Past Kissin' Time to read more!


Today was my first real workout with my trainer. His name is Kyle and he looks a bit like a priest. I'm sore, but not miserable. My full report will be available at the Indy Go Red Better U blog shortly.


We've got a fun weekend planned. My nephew is being baptized tomorrow, so all our family, including my brother and his family from Georgia will be in town. Then there's the Colts game tomorrow night (oh, please let them beat the Ravens!). Sunday, I'm going to the gym with one of the other Better U challengers and Charlie has his last regular season basketball game. Then Monday, we're taking the kids to see the Harlem Globetrotters -- using the free tickets that I got for blogging about the show (game?)! Plus, we're invited to a "meet 'n greet" with the team before the game starts.


Remember "Jill" from my office? She resigned to follow her passion (and her passionate fiance!). Her last day was in December, but we had a going away party for her last night. It was a great combo of roast and sentimental tribute. I'll miss having her around the office.


In the "why didn't I think of that" category, check out this awesome idea from Enchanted Dandelions. She saw how much her (adorable) kids loved playing in big cardboard boxes, so she had her dh build a big wooden box. It's probably bought her hours of blogging time!


Remembering a hero: Today is the 1 year anniversary of the Miracle on the Hudson, orchestrated by Captain Sully Sullivan. But there's another hero story that caught my attention earlier this week. It's posted at The Daily Grind.

Thanks for the bloggy love! Altho' now I really feel like I've been slacking off with the posting...

@MarineWife - You know, we post when we can post. I always feel guilty that I only make the blog rounds about twice a week. But until someone pays me a gajillion dollars to do nothing but blog and read blogs, I'll work it in where I can.

Martha said...

Thank you. I am honored to be mentioned in your post. Thank you for honoring my brother.

Sharon said...

Aw, thanks! That really made me smile. :) YOU certainly deserve the award.

How fun to see Harlem Globetrotters! We watched 2 of those players on The Amazing Race. They seem so down to earth. If you meet Big Easy take a picture!

Congrats on your lemonade stand!

You have had a busy few days! You're going to need some quiet me time soon.

Amy said...

Joanie - Maybe that's why I'm crabby today (see my Crabby Appleton post).

Shelley said...

Well, thank you, Amy! That just made my day, especially since I so often feel like a grumpy old bat. LOL!!
