Friday Fragments

This is my very first time participating in Friday Fragments but it's been a long time coming. If you only knew how hard it can be for me to write in actual logical sentences instead of just bullet pointing my main topics, you'd be amazed that I even started a blog!

Anyway, you can head over to Half-Past Kissin' Time to get the scoop and check out a bunch more random stuff!

*I've been a long time, card carrying member of the expert-pill-swallowing-club. I've bragged to my husband that I can swallow upwards of 8 horse size pills in one swig. {Yes, that's right, I've bragged about THAT... I've never claimed to be interesting!} But recently I've completely forgotten how to swallow pills at all! Not only do I actually have to think about it and make several attempts, but I've decreased the number I take at one time, and they are still getting stuck in my throat! Dang, I wasted that specialized skill and now it's just gone!

*We had a play date with the Dane fosters that are staying down the road:Storm & George. Miss Storm looks just like my Dolly Llama. I told Aaron that we could adopt her and call her Minnie Mouse. {Minnie since she is a mini Dolly and Mouse cuz I add animal names to the end of all our pets' names. GEEZ it's not as funny when I have to explain it!} But how funny would it be to call a Great Dane 'Minnie'?

The ever graceful, Dolly Llama performing Downward Dog.

*I just paid $50 for the privilege of wearing jeans to work on Fridays. Comfort really does mean that much to me! At least all the money goes to the American Cancer Society. I'm so glad my new school is so active in Relay for Life!

*My mom texted me when we got back from our trip last weekend and told me to call her and tell her all about it when I got the chance. I'm ashamed to say that I still haven't called her. I guess she figures I'm still alive though, the missing person division of the police department hasn't shown up yet.

- In my defense, I've been working 10 hour days at school all week and I'm EXHAUSTED when I get home!

*We bought groceries at Wallyworld and we dutifully took in our reusable bags. I love them because you can carry so much more stuff in one bag and then I don't have the erupting cabinet of plastic bags, but they haven't caught on around here, so we're usually the only ones in the store using them. At the checkout the cashier actually refused to bag our groceries because we had reusable bags. I told Aaron I felt like we'd been discriminated against - at Walmart of all places!

I could go on and on, but I don't want to scare you off on my very first week out of the shoot. I'll be back for more next week! Enjoy your weekend!


  1. I love that photo of your yoga dog! ;)

    What? Walmart refused to bag your groceries because you brought in your own bags??? That's insane!

    Our Walmart, as well as most of our other stores, actually keep the "green" bags on one of their bag racks, so if you don't bring your own in, they can encourage you to (purchase and) use theirs - rather than plastic.

  2. Welcome to your first FF!

    I can't believe they refused to bag your groceries because you had reusable bags. We get a 5 cent credit for every reusable bag we bring.

  3. They wouldn't bag your groceries for you?? How weird!

  4. I'm so glad you joined in this week-you're a pro fragmenter! :) Sorry it's taken me so long to get here, but 40 is a LOT of fragmenters to catch up with!

    You and I have something in common; I, too, am certified to teach Early Childhood and Kindergarten. I haven't used the license in 20 years, but I keep it renewed, because I love the idea of teaching Kindergarten one day. I look forward to coming back here and reading of your adventures :)

    Also, I can swallow quite a few pills at a time, too. Guess I'd better make it count! haha

    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that you mentioned the paying to wear jeans to school thing, because last year, I bought 15 days worth of the SAME THING and had 4-5 left that I had FORGOTTEN about until your post. Hurray! I know what I'm wearing to school tomorrow.,,,
