Friday Fragments & Freewrites

So I understand finding loose change in the washer or dryer. But the dishwasher? I don't get it.

The shrink wrap is AWESOME. It's completely invisible and I can actually feel the difference it makes. So exciting. And it's super easy to do. So if you're considering it, go for it. If you get the jumbo pack of 9 at Home Depot it costs a buck a window. You can't go wrong.

I've been replaced by a pod person. I bought candy for the kids. 2 bags of candy. One week before Halloween. Cause Mia wanted it. Not for herself. Well, not totally. She wanted to get a sweet surprise for the boys. How could I deny her moment of sweet generosity? So when Ty is presented with the candy his response is along the lines of finally, we've been eating cheese and crackers for dessert for days poor baby. So I'm like Ty, that's cause you guys ate all the oreos n chips ahoy and he says you didn't buy enough. And I say you go through 3 packages a week. silence. And he says well, they don't put enough in the packages

conflict of the week: blog? yoga? blog? yoga? blog? yoga? clean bathrooms? blog? yoga?

Mia put on a play last night. Complete with tickets and announcements. The play's title was The Edventures of Super Martian Robot Girl (yea!) which apparently is a yo gabba gabba reference. Barbie was in the starring role of Mary. Mia introduced her with she doesn't say much and she doesn't blink. As I was about to catch the bloggable moment she looked at me and announced there will be no cameras and no cell phones during the performance. harumpf. The show included an array of small characters, and the requisite scary giant bunny with the crazy psycho voice. Giant bunnies never scared me until I saw Donny Darko. That rabbit scared the shit out of me. Afterwards, she invited the audience to explore the stage and was available to answer questions. When I asked if she had directed other shows she replied yes, my other play is called The Drama Queen. She has also written several books including the Wizard of New York. I ate Raisinets during the performance. They were delicious.

wow that was loud


  1. Blog THEN eat Milano cookies. NO YOGA!!

    Money in the disghwasher??? YAHOO!! Like a bonus!!

    Thxs for the HD plug again. HD funds our retirement so every sale counts!!

    Hallie :)

  2. Let me just say my bathrooms are not that clean. But I do go to yoga.
    Priorities, dammit! Priorities!

  3. I had a nickle in my dishwasher 2 weeks ago! I couldn't figure it out either.

    Blogging is definitely a priority here! :o)

  4. That play sounds awesome. The thing about Barbie not saying much and not blinking cracked me up.

  5. I think you should invent a new thing... yogging. Hold a yoga pose while blogging. I see workout video empire in your future.

    Oy, how I love Raisinets...

  6. I simply love the Friday Freewrite. Each paragraph rings true for me.

  7. wow that was loud - lol!

    can you not do both yoga and blogging (not like I should say anything - blogging has been winning at this house, too)

  8. love that not enough in the packages

  9. I neither clean my bathrooms nor do yoga; therefore, no conflict. Life is sweet.

  10. change in the dishwasher? now thats a first!

  11. Your boy is on to something. More in the package could solve a lot of problems.

    Nice to meet you! Found you through Friday Fragments and I'm gonna check you out- wink, wink!

    Happy FF!

  12. This post was awesome!

    I'm trying to invent a workout that incorporates blogging so I can do both at the same time.

  13. Ah yes, the blog or yoga debate...I battle that as well.

  14. I'd be pretty dang excited if I started finding money in the dishwasher. It might be more of an incentive to DO the dishes *L*

    Too bad you can't do yoga and blog at the same time! I guess meditating is a bit tricky while blogging though.

  15. Blogging does seem to sometimes get in the way of the other things we need to do doesn't it?

    Loose change in the dishwasher? Odd. I can't imagine a way that could happen, unless money fell out of a pocket while loading the dishwasher.

  16. The little vents at the top of the dishwasher go directly into the actual dishwasher. I've caught my son slipping small tokens into the slots and then opened the door to find the token inside the dish washer.

  17. I love it when kids do plays. Wish I could have bought a ticket :)


so... wadaya think?

Your fairy is called Columbine Icedancer
She is a bone chilling bringer of justice for the vulnerable.
She lives in mushroom fields and quiet meadows.
She is only seen when the bees swarm and the crickets chirrup.
She wears lilac and purple like columbine flowers. She has icy blue butterfly wings.
