FRIDAY FRAGMENTS!!! Wooooo hooooo!! This is so up my alley since I really have a very short attention span, and often can only get a few words down at a time. Now my fragmented posts of mismatched information will be saved for Fridays!! How convenient is THAT??
During the week, you save up some tidbits of what’s been going on, it may not be enough for an entire post, but enough for a “fragment”…you collect all these fragments and then you can jot them down in one post on Fridays. Sounds easy enough!
So, why not save your fragmented posts for Fridays and join Mrs4444 over at Half-Past Kissin’ Time where it’s ok to be fragmented, or scattered, or even demented…well, maybe not demented, but you get the idea! Just be sure to link back to her! She deserves at least that much for giving us this opportunity.
This is the day I almost lost my Little Man. You see, he’s really quite the adventurer. Nothing can keep him contained, hence the new locks on the front and back doors that are high enough andcomplicated enough that he cannot do them.
Kidding…ours look like this:
On this particular day, everyone (including the spouse) was upstairs as I was in the basement
I looked at my spouse as he wanders into the kitchen….he looks at me….I point to Little Man outside (thank God in a small fenced in area that was once used to contain our dogs)…..and the spouse
This was the evening I realized I had one big lousy, painful, and quite annoying UTI. Spent most of the evening in the bathroom saying, “what the hell?” “why me?” “Is this really necessary??” Went to bed….worried about WETTING the bed….was up all night trying to pee and also up because I was determined NOT to wet the bed. I am in my 40’s, for Pete’s Sake…this is the in between age where I am not supposed to wet the bed!!
Woke up in severe pain. SEVERE!! Shall I repeat that??
S E V E R E !! P A I N !!
Spent a good part of my day in patient bathrooms, nearly falling off their toilets as I waited not so patiently for my doc to call in an antibiotic. He finally did which was much appreciated!! I think I need to send him something….a thank you card, perhaps?? A bouquet of balloons??
This is the day the spouse got ticked off at Little Man removing all the DVD’s from the drawer….I don’t know how many are in there, 50? 1000??…anyhow, he kept going in there….oh wait….first, let me say, we thought we rectified this issue with Lil Lady a few years ago with the Tot Lock….but Little Man has BROKEN it!! Now Little Man likes to remove all the DVD’s one at a time, asks you to put the movie in just so he can take it out and ask for another one….It can go on for hours. So….never the less….our nice TV cabinet table looks like THIS:
Quite attractive strap we got, yes??
I kid you not….locks where there normally aren’t locks, door knob covers so he can’t open doors we don’t want open….Oh yeah….LOCKS on the fridge AND freezer because Little Man was helping himself….ALL. Day. Long. (certainly not because I don’t know how to stop snacking…that would be absurd!!) Is this because he’s a boy?? Never had so many contraptions to deal with before…hell, you should see what I have to do just to go to the bathroom!!
Friday….Fragmented and Disgusted
Today I tried to talk with my babysitter about cutting down her days. Yes, I know she is struggling, but I can’t be the one to help her when we can’t help ourselves. I thought we were more than employee/employer, but I have been shown otherwise. When I tried to tell her it was because I could no longer afford to pay her and pay the mortgage or the van or or OR…..well, she basically came back with: “Well, you made it easier for me….I was going to ask you for more money or tell you I was going to have to look elsewhere…” WTF?? Really? This is coming from someone that I knew long before she started babysitting for me….not that we were close friends or anything, but I would think there would be something to say for that. Also, She KNOWS how we are struggling……Apparently….basically…..people just SUCK!! They are out for themselves. Period. I tried to tell her it would be temporary….
Ahhhh….well….it’s just a sucky way to end my week. I could go on for a whole post on this one, but I really need to get my thoughts together. I am seriously wondering how far people will go to benefit themselves. I need to think about this one…
So, Friday Fragments was a cool way to speak about a few of the major things that have gone on this week. As you can see, Little Man has us hopping. To end this on a happy note….I must show you one more way in which the Little Man thinks.
This worries me just a bit…..
Yes…those are scissors……
That is all.
Happy Friday to you all!!
Thank you Mrs4444 for bringing Friday Fragments into my life! You are my hero!
