Friday Fragments


Happy New Year Everyone!

~~~~~~~~~~

2011, can you believe it!? Shouldn't we all be living a more Jetsons lifestyle with all of it's push button space age conveniences by now?

~~~~~~~~~~

Did y'all have a nice holiday? Mine was what it was. GlitterGurl has some drama (for lack of better word) going on in her life. Not going into details here, but if you're the praying type, it would be greatly appreciated. Just pray really hard, mkay.

~~~~~~~~~~

I took the ornaments off the tree the other day and actually put them away. The tree still stands in the corner. 'Naked' as TOF says. I was toying with the idea of a 365 project that included the tree, but here we are January 7th and I haven't taken a single picture. Truth be told, it looks rather pathetic standing in the corner 'naked'.

~~~~~~~~~~

I'm very excited for the weekend! Tonight the boys are having a sleepover on The Avenue. Even though I'm with them all day, 5 days a week, I look forward to Mema time with them. We'll eat pizza and play games and be silly until we all pass out in the big bed.

~~~~~~~~~~

Saturday night we're all heading to the Chicago Wolves game*. We've never been and I'm looking forward to a really fun night. TOF asked if Byfuglien was going to be there and I told him it wasn't the Blackhawks playing. He said he's already been to a hockey game and would rather go to a waterpark. Well then. Maybe meeting Skates will change his mind..

~~~~~~~~~~

I didn't really make any resolutions this year. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I want to lose weight, eat healthier. But what I really want is to just be comfortable with the way I am and not hate myself for gaining all this weight. I don't think I'll ever see 120 on the scale again unless I convert to kilos. Wait, I just did the math on that. I don't want to see that either!

~~~~~~~~~~

I posted this on Facebook yesterday, regarding a story in my local paper. Trying to wrap my brain around the story of a local teacher arrested for having sex with a 16 yr old student. IN HER CAR, IN THE KOHL'S PARKING LOT. Come on, she couldn't have found a Groupon for No Tell Motel? What was she thinking? Surely her student loans aren't even paid off and she's thrown away a perfectly good career. Besides, doesn't she know that 16 year old boys are quick to the draw? #dumbass

Have you heard of payboxme.com? It's a new payment processing website that is similar to Paypal. You get $25 for signing up and $10 for referrals plus bonuses for using the website daily. I'm not saying it's good or bad, but for 5 minutes of work a day I'll take a chance. If it's a hoax, I've lost nothing. They only ask for an email to sign up. If it's a real deal, I'll be sitting pretty on lots of cool cash. Make your own decision.

~~~~~~~~~~

But Swagbucks is a real deal. I just signed up and I'm well on my way to earning Amazon giftcards. Click on that swidget over there to the right and sign up if you haven't already.

~~~~~~~~~~

Have a great weekend everyone!

Disclaimer-My family was given tickets to attend the Chicago Wolves game. I was not compensated in any other way, nor was I asked to blog about it. I just wanted to share my excitement.

Happy new Year MRM, and just for the record I was totally down with the 365 tree idea!

Sounds like you're going to have a fun weekend. Be sure to take a moment to toss out that naked tree! :-)
