Friday Fragments

Mommy's Idea

It's been awhile since I have done my Friday Fragments, so long that Mrs. 4444's has changed her banner to spring pictures. Whoops.

*Every week I think about the things that I could frag and then Friday comes and goes. Now I am typing on an actual Friday and I am not sure if I can remember any of them.

*I will tell you that if you drop a root beer in a bottle out of your refrigerator and it explodes, you will be finding root beer all over the kitchen for days (ok, maybe weeks).

*We have had 6 months of a rainy season here that finally turned the corner into no, not spring or summer, but pollen season. That's right, we are going thru Kleenex(by Kleenex, I mean Puffs with lotion) like there is no tomorrow. Pollen is covering everything. That means that even though the sun is finally out, we cannot go outside and enjoy it due to the epic sneezing. (PS, I am sorry to complain knowing that our weather could be so much worse, like the mid west.)

*My daughter wants to be Lady Gaga.

*I know that many schools are getting out right now for summer, but we go until the 21st. That's 16 more days of school and there is so much crammed into those 16 days, that I have to make a chart on poster board to keep everything straight.

*B and I leave for the Jump Rope Nationals on the 22nd in Galveston, Texas! We know Galveston, but are going to San Antonio for a few days after. Does anyone have any suggestions for restaurants or things to do in San Antonio?

*I got to go out to dinner twice in the last 2 weeks with girlfriends and now I have 2 more blond stories for you... you'll have to wait until next week.

*How did you like Scotty winning American Idol?

*Last, but way not least, my friend and Blogher bedmate, Melisa with one S has written a fabulous book about what to see and do in Chicago with tweens/teens! It is called Chicken In The Car And The Car Won't Go. She had a fantastic book launch the other night sponsored by many Chicago greats including Chevy. They took a "cruze" around Chicago!

*Thank you to the men and women currently serving in our military and our veterans. We wouldn't be the country we are without all of you. Happy weekend!

Lady Gaga is everywhere she is the new Madonna. Tell her she can be the clothed version of Gaga!! By the way she looks beautiful without her braces so mature.
Lots of rain and pollen here too my allergies are OC.
Hope you have a wonderful long weekend!

Don't feel too bad; I only changed the header last week---I figured it was time to get rid of the snow pics!

I can't believe you have so much school left! When do you start?

Scotty...well...He's okay, in a Howdie Doodie/ Mad magazine guy kind of way. As for Lauren, I think she's sweet and all, but I think there is something just numb about her; I wonder if we'll ever know what it's about. Maybe 16 is too young for Idol?

I hope you had a nice long weekend. Sorry to hear you went from winter to pollen. I have two here that have terrible allergies and pollen season is a bear for them.

Yes, "spring" in the Midwest has been a trial. Friday it was rainy and cold, Saturday it was rainy and a bit warmer, Sunday we had a "lovely" storm. It was so lovely that I thought the Apocalypse was coming. (At least I was in church. :)Today, well it was 90 degrees.

And isn't it great about Melisa's new book. Can't wait to read it!
