Friday Fragments



I am trying something new today, and going with Half-Past Kissin’ Time ‘s feature, Friday Fragments.  Basically, you get to write down random things that aren’t long enough to make a whole post out of.  Sounded fun!


1)  I almost always end my emails with “Got to go clean up” or, “the laundry is calling my name.”  Then, 9 times out of 10, I just keep sitting here at my computer.


2)  At one point this week, when Joseph was being particularly demanding, I said, “Hold on just a second, honey, Mommy is doing something.  It’s not all about you, you know.” 

Then, I realized, it is.


3)  When I hurt myself unexpectedly (bang my head on the cupboard, stub my toe, etc.) I find that I have to try really hard not to cry.  Not because it hurts that much, but because, for some reason, it hurts my feelings. 


4)  Brian and I were watching some movie this week that had a “painting scene.”  You know, a couple is painting, and then they start splattering each other and laughing, kissing, etc. 

Brian said, “Why do movies always try to make painting seem fun?  Who has fun when they are painting?  It sucks!” 

Excellent point.


5)  I sometimes wait to go “number 2” until the last possible minute, because then I can do it a lot faster.


Did I go too far with that last one?  Shoot!  A girl tries to “keep the mystery alive” for 3.5 years, and now Brian knows that I poop.

Well, I had better go- those dishes wont clean themselves, you know! (wink, wink.)

HAHAHAHA, Oh I am so cracking up at you!!

And I couldn't agree more with you on the painting thing!!

You totally went too far with that last one... but at least you made it to the bathroom! ;)

I know what you mean about painting and who in their right mind would start a painting fight and make more of a mess than painting already is?

Nina said...

LOL.... you are so funny!!

I liked your random things and I say that to my kids all the time but you are right it is all about them.

I do that same thing; say I gotta go do something and then sit there for a few minutes longer. It's a habit I think.

Painting fun? I don't think so!!! LOL

We have an old friend who always said, "If you wait long enough, you don't even have to push!" LOL

Finally catching up on your blog --- this one was just too funny! I totally hear you about telling lies about the productive things I tell everyone I will be doing and then just continuing to sit and do what I was doing (blogging).

And I try to draw out my "dropping the kids in the pool" as long as possible because it lets me hide out in the bathroom and read Us Weekly. You should try it sometime! ; )

Well, gotta run -- those dirty dishes in the sink are calling my name.
