Frag'n Friday

Mommy's Idea
It's Friday and another edition of Friday Fragments! Please stop by Mrs. 4444s, say hi and join the fun!

*Add Flip Video camera to my girls' Christmas list. They went to a class this week on how to use them, download them and create movies on imovie. Of course, they now both want one. At least it will be one thing we won't need to read the directions for...

*I was driving down the highway this week and was next to a 12 or so wheeler. The truck blew one of it's tires right next to me. It sounded like a gun shot and the rubber tire piece flew in the air like a balloon. Scared the CRAP out of me!!!! My heart was beating so fast, I considered it my cardio workout for the day.

*One smart shark finally made it's way into Chatham Harbor yesterday. I say smart, because the majority of seals on the eastern seaboard are within Chatham Harbor. Plenty of sharks have been spotted along the outer beaches, but none inside the harbor until yesterday. I think he wasn't spotted today because he went to tell his buddies about the jackpot.

*As I said, I went and saw Jennifer Weiner speak yesterday. While I was there, I met Jill who also has a blog and is writing a book with her mom. Jill has 2 girls, the oldest a red head, the youngest a blond. I am pretty sure we bonded for life the minute I realized that! Check out her blog here!

*I found the perfect way to blow off some steam tonight. With some friends, we visited the batting cages. Oh, it was so great to hit that softball!!! I may have even impressed a few kids.

Thanks B for getting a picture.
And we saw a deer across the parking lot looking for a little dinner!

*The summer weeks are going by faster and faster. Enjoy your weekend!

Big trucks like that scare me even without blowing a tire. One side swiped my dad's car once, I was lying down in the back seat. Scared the bejeebus out of me.

I hope none of the tire debris damaged your car.

I would love to own a Flip!

The same tire thing happened to me this summer, just as we passed a semi that blew a tire-WOW. I'm with you on the cardio!

Have a great week!
