Friday Fragments...

I saw this quote on Pinterest awhile back that said something along the lines of, "Both of us can't look good at the same time.  It's either me or the house."  I feel that way often and lately, I've been so focused on the yard and other things around here that the blog has been the one to suffer the most neglect. I thought I could at least construct a Friday Fragments post for tomorrow though since this is pretty much the way I think most of the time anyway...    
Mommy's Idea

~I've been watching The Bachelorette, shamelessly this time because it's Emily and her story is so near and dear to my heart and she's from Charlotte where they are filming a lot of the show.  I couldn't have turned away from this one if I tried. There were two separate incidences with two different guys, however, that took place on this week's show that left me shouting, "Emily! Girlfriend, what are you thinking giving this asshat a rose?!" 

The first one was Ryan aka Mr. I'm-too-sexy-for-my-shirt. He actually had the nerve and audacity to tell Emily in front of her girlfriends in the park that if she got fat after they got married, he would still love her, he just wouldn't love up ON her.  Umm...Next!  

Then there was Kalon.  Where oh where do I even begin with this guy?  He had a helicopter drop him off on the lawn the night they were all introduced to Emily and made me cringe from the inside out when he crossed his sockless, loafer-wearing leg as he sat beside her this week and then proceeded to stop her midsentence and all but tell her to shut up while he finished saying his piece.  Oh H. No!  

Yet both these charmers are still standing.

She did have the good sense her mama gave her to send Mr. I-am-God's-gift-to-women-and-long-to-be-your-Latin-lover Allesandro home on the spot though when he told her through broken English that giving up his playboy lifestyle to become a husband to her and father to her daughter, Ricki, while he was willing to do it, would be a great compromise for him. Well, at least he was honest.  Adios, Amigo! 

I'm currently rooting for Arie  and she already seems completely smitten with him.  


~One more week of school left here.  Part of me is ecstatic that I won't have to get up before the roosters crow five days a week but the biggest part of me is dreading like the plague the fighting/bickering that will surely ensue each and every day. 

It will be a shorter summer break than normal, however, since our county decided we needed to start back the first week of August instead of the last, like all the other schools in North Carolina, and filed for an exemption to that law which was approved.  Apparently, you can do that if your county missed a certain amount  of days due to inclement weather in the past few years though we didn't miss a single one this year since we didn't see a single snowflake.  

~Wednesday morning I finally got the permanent crown placed on tooth number 19,  one of the two teeth I had to have a root canal on last year.  It is so perfectly perfect,not to mention EXPENSIVE that it's almost a shame nobody except my dentist and her staff will likely ever catch a glimpse of it since it's a bottom left molar and I'm not one to make a habit of throwing my head back and talking and laughing with my entire mouth.  


~When I was waiting at a stoplight to turn onto the highway this morning, the guy in the car in front of me had the nerve to throw some sort of wrapper out of his window when the light turned and he began to accelerate. I was so peeved that once I got on the highway, I got up beside him and gave him my best evil eye before speeding around him.  He just looked at me like WTH?  I don't think he had a clue why and just thought I was some crazy woman. It did make me feel better, but in hindsight it probably wasn't the smartest move.   Litterbugs infuriate me though.  Grr!!


Best things I found on Pinterest this week...

This is so true!  Drives me insane when their ears flip over.  I must fix them immediately.  The longhaired Dachsies aren't quite as bad about this as the smooths though.

I may have to do this for Dracen's teacher!

I think this is the best definition of
 Grief that I have ever read. So true.

A little dark humor but I've always been a Muppets fan
as well as a big Dr. Seuss fan  so I found this hysterical.

And I think I'll end the randomness on that note...

Happy Friday, Y'all!

  1. I would have done the same thing with the guy and the wrapper, I hate litter bugs!!! I love the grieve quote. It's so true. I am sure I will grieve my Mom forever. It's only been 9 months.

    Have a good weekend.

  2. That last one with the Muppets was priceless.

  3. Litterbugs drive me crazy, too!
    You live in Charlotte? We used to live in SC, just over the state line.
    We're on week 2 of summer vacation: the kids in the county where I work go back on 6 Aug. this year. It's nice getting out so early, but it stinks having to go back when it's so bloomin' hot!

  4. haha - loved every 'frag' :)

    I so was rooting for Ryan at the beginning - & just proved to myself I'm a bad judge of character. He's turning into a cocky jerk! :( Yep - you can tell she's dreamy eyed with Arie already!!!

    That Muppets comic is hilarious!

    Ohhhhh my - I cant tell you how many root canals/crowns I've had... & my teeth are STILL ugly... depressing!

  5. Yes, the grief comment is so true, and everyone grieves alone and in their own way. It is work that has to be done, though, and we pay for it if we don't do it.

  6. I hate litter bugs too! Gah what is wrong with people and to blantantly throw it out the window? WTF?
    I can't believe that your school is out this early!
    Our kids still have 3 or 4 weeks to go!!
    Speaking of dentists, I have to go next week. Boo. I know I have a cavity. Have I ever told you that I am terrified of the dentist? Because I am.

  7. Littering kicks my dander up especially if it's a cigarette butt.

    There is a number to call to report in NC. It's a lot safer than giv'in the stink eye on a drive by.

    Th muppet cartoon is sooooooooo wrong. LOL

  8. My brother and SIL's kids go to school in Charlotte and my SIL is going back to teaching in August. Guess they're going to have a short summer.

  9. We had a doxie for far too short of a time- she passed last week. 14 years old, we adopted her in January from the humane society. She had Cushing's and it took an acute spike last weekend and the vet discovered she had heart disease. It was her time.

    Nice to meet you!

  10. LOVE the Muppet cartoon. :) And dreading the last day of school. We have 14 more to go... minus 5 days of field trips, one day of doctor's visits, and two overnight cub scout outings...

    I'll be a wreck by the 14th.

  11. The quote from Pinterest had me giggling. I have been doing so much yard work, my neatly manicured fingernails look like they've been dipped in a pigs mud bath.

  12. I agree, the green eggs and ham cartoon was hilarious.

  13. The first week in August? I'd cry! But then they are redoing our HVAC, so we'll be lucky to be back in on time!

    4 more days...

  14. Great post and it's definitly worth a comment from me. You've earned a loyal fan.

  15. We've been out exactly 2 weeks. We've been to the beach and back. Now we are in the throws of drivers ed, basketball camp, vbs!

    We start back an earlier week this year, too. We are getting a full week in October and Thanksgiving!
