Half Past Kissin' Time...
Once again I stayed up way too late reading blogs. I was working on my normal visits and replying to comments when I noticed a post on my bud, Katy, @Fun With the Baker 5
She was talking about this blog, Go Blog Yourself. Please take the time to go check out their story! Remember the awesome read I sent you to with NieNie?? This one has one simple request....Pray for Tuesday on Tuesday!
Tuesday is one of twin girls and she has CANCER! So, even if you don't pray, please send all your well wishes, good vibes, and positive thoughts their way!
I found myself sitting here reading their story, crying, until well after 2:00 this morning. Even though my baby doesn't have cancer, he does have CP, a disability. I could so relate to the pain of feeling so helpless, sitting in the hospital, all the testing, all the WAITING. And, just wanting to be a 'normal' family again and wanting nothing more than for your baby to NOT be in pain, to be healthy and happy and running, jumping and playing....to be ALIVE!
Now, on with the rest of my fragments! I've had quite a week!
I already posted about my poor mailbox passing. What's even sadder is we are having to make do with it's carcus until we can get out to get a replacement. Hubby reconnected the post to the box but it was totally dismembered at the 'feet'. He found this empty pot I had and had to use these blocks and some lumber to support the poor thing. I was thinking it would be pretty hilarious to see the mail person open, insert mail,and close...just to see it go tumbling apart. Hmmm, that doesn't sound as funny now as it did in my head.
Ok, you know Mrs.4444 that runs this shin-dig of Friday Fragments? Well, she also likes to see anyone's SHT that will show it to her. I told her that I have some SHT's and have been meaning to get my SHT together. The thing is, I might be too late. Mrs.4444, am I too late? or is this an ongoing deal. Are you wanting all the SHT's you can get your hands on? Let me know! If you still want mine I will get it together for you. Although, my SHT is not nearly as impressive as I've seen over at your place.
You know Katy that I mentioned above?? Well, she just started her own business with Scentsy. I have never tried this product before but I intend to. She says she will be having a party in a town really close to me and I AM INVITED!! How cool is that? Not only will I get to try out these pretty candles that apparently smell really good... I will get to make a new IRL (in real life) friend that comes from bloggyland. And I would assume I will also get to meet her sister Miss JC from Where the Green Grass Grows... and she said a few more bloggers. I can hardly wait!!
Speaking of getting to meet friends from blogland IRL..... well, I don't know if I will get to actually meet these ladies but they do live in my same state and i think that's cool! I bumped into Impulsive Addict through Katy and assumed they were IRL buds but have since found out they have not actually met IRL (maybe she can make it to the party) and from her blog I am fixin to venture on over to another fellow Okie, JennyKate's place and Dawn's Diversion's and check them out. She left me a comment and she says I'm funny! hehe...I like to make people laugh! It's not usually that difficult to get people to laugh at/with me, I'm kinda a goober sometimes.
Well, once again I will be spending my weekend trying to reply to all my wonderful comments. Did I mention I LOVE COMMENTS? I do!! I agree with Mrs.4444, there has to be an easier, faster way to reply to everybody. And, what is proper blogger etiquette? I would love to be able to reply to every single comment by using the 'reply' in my email and then I can go visit them and leave my comment love AFTER I'm done with my replies. BUT, not everyone has their profile set so I can do that. Instead, when I hit reply, I get no-reply@blooger
I have only one more little bit of news then I think I'm done with my Fragments...at least the ones I can think of right now. So, I am getting another Mom of the Year award! My friend Heather at Our Incredible Journey said she already has my badge in the mail. She also said she may be expecting it back soon. I'm not quite sure what her 'intentions' are (I sure hope the kids stay safe...lol) but I don't think I will be releasing it anytime soon. I am gonna frame it and put it on my wall (with all the others I have)! Just hang on...I'm gettin there! I was 'just' fixin to explain.
A couple of weeks ago Roo's school posted a sign stating that there had been several cases of RSV (Respiratory Syncytial Virus). Being the wonderful mom I am I took him to class with the thought 'he's fine, doesn't even have a cold and the sickie's are at home'. Yea, well, guess what! Right - he now has RSV! Great job MOM! Not only that...he also has an ear infection IN BOTH EARS!! I would guess he has had the RSV for about a week since he hasn't even been at school because of the ice on the roads. Yep, thank you, thank you! Leave me a comment and I will email you the place you too can send me a badge to add to my wall.
