Friday Fragments

Mommy's Idea

Is it Friday already?  Not complaining...I'm exhausted & ready to rest for the weekend (or at least rest for an hour or two of the weekend)... so lets "frag" - shall we?

*The Mini-Marathon Training has officially started... I ran just this week 12 miles!  Next week, I get amped up to 4 miles every other day with a 2 mile run in between... oh mercy!  But I'll tell you, when I start a new week & the miles are amped up, its TOUGH... but I'm seeing by the end of the week, my heart rate is more level, I'm stronger at the end of the run... in just a week's time, your body adjusts THAT quickly!  What a strange thing our bodies are!

*I'm now addicted to Lipton Cold Brew Tea!  I gotta drink SOMETHING during the day with shaving down the Diet Coke addiction & I found these little individual bags that I can put in my mug, put ice on top, use cold water & 15 minutes later, I have a really good cup of tea.  And yep, not even adding sugar!  That's HUGE for me folks!  But I'm getting used to the taste, & really enjoying unsweetened tea now.  For a Southern-girl - that may be against some sorta code, so dont tell anyone...But I'm averaging now about 2-3 Diet Cokes a day & I'm trying to cut that down even to one, & then eventually none.  Think that's still bad?  You have to remember, I would EASILY drink about 10-12 Diet Cokes in a Day... gasp!  Would Dr. Oz like to get his hands on me?

*Tax time has begun.... my hands have been KILLING me at work from boxing files & preparing for returns.  They've hurt so bad that I havent even knit like 4 nights out of the week.  I must quit my job...

*I'm taking a stand... TEAM CONAN!!!! Jay Leno needs to go on with his selfish-self!  How is he going to step down, hand over the show to Conan, make Conan move his family across the country (along with the crew & their family) & then say, "I want it back?".... shame on you Jay Leno... I didnt care for you before & I really REALLY dislike you now.... I hope Conan comes out of this with a killer deal from someone!

*How many of you all had "Pants on the Ground" stuck in your head after watching American Idol Wednesday?  Ricky & I literally sang it until we fell asleep...

*SPAT OF THE WEEK:  I will not be putting up a spat of the week... why?  Because my husband totally redeemed himself after last week.  Friday evening, when it was like 5 degrees outside, he came in & handed me his Snuggie & told me I could use it... THEN, Saturday, he ran out to the store & came home & handed me a bag... with?... Yep, my very own Snuggie... funny how the stupid, small things in marriage can make you so happy...But never fear, another week will go by, so I'm sure next week, there will be fresh new "Spats"

*You've heard me talk about my dear friends, Joe & Emily & their daughter, Emily, who was diagnosed with Infantile Spasms... they started a blog about their journey with this condition... If you get a chance, stop by & give them some encouragement...

*Bachelor Drama - I believe Rozlyn totally set up all this drama so she could drag it out for even MORE drama... I mean, once these girls gets kicked off, who hears from them again?  So why not set it up where you're on every entertainment cover & interview show?  Just my opinion... glad she's gone though... dont care for people who think they are too hot for the world... Weirdest line from last weeks show: "Do you wanna make out with my forehead?  You can make out with it all night if you want"... weird, just weird

*Anyone excited about the Golden Globes?  I normally dont care... but gotta cheer on my "GLEE" cast!  Go Jane Lynch!!!  Go Lea Michele!! Go Matthew Morrison!!!  Hope they win something! .... Hope Jay Leno doesnt want to take over their show (dont get me started again on that man)

Happy Friday everyone!


  1. I'm with you on Team Conan. I don't think Jay is making any new fans over this one.

    I'm trying to lessen my addiction to Diet Coke also. So far, it's not working. You give me hope though!

  2. Love The Bachelor- think the whole Rozlyn thing is a total scam for ratings..

    I have pants on the ground as a ring tone already..

    and GLEE makes me absolutely giddy! I can't get enough.. seriously!

  3. I'm so excited for you with your run! Go girl!

    And way to go on cutting down on the Diet Coke! You can do it!

  4. You had a chance to see Air Supply and didn't go????


    Hallie :)

  5. I have loved Conan for so long. He's such a classy guy.

    Oh, and if you want a lot of Bachelor spoilers, you should read

    He has inside sources and totally blew the whole Molly Jason thing wide open.

  6. I am so proud of you for training for a mini-marathon. Don't know how you do it. It's hard for me to do a 5K!

    Tea without sugar DOES break every rule there is. Every rule. You're drinking brown water!!

  7. what a great week you have had. Yeah on your running and the tea sounds wonderful. I take the same stand as you..

  8. wow, lots going on in the entertainment world. I hadn't really heard a lot about the Jay Leno thing but I definitely don't think he can have it back. It doesn't work that way. And good job on the runs!!

  9. Team Conan all the way.

    I've already warned my family... come Sunday evening, I will be holed up in my bedroom. Just me, my laptop, some snacks and the Globes. Unless the house is on fire or someone is bleeding, I had better not be disturbed.

  10. YAY for Team Conan!!! Love him, always have. I'm so upset this is happening to him!
    Oh my gosh, my husband and I have been singing "Pants on the ground" constantly since AI the other night...even my two year old sings it! HA!
    TOTALLY agree with you about the weirdest line from The strange was that?
    So are you loving your Itouch? Jake got me one last year for my bday and I just LOVE it! Not only is it a great ipod but the apps are so much fun! I get why people love their iphones so much now! :)
    I hope you have a fantastic weekend! Take care!

  11. Glad you came by and got your awards. Thanks for being so sweet to me..

  12. I haven't come across ANYONE who isn't Team Conan! I'm just baffled as to why this is even an issue. It seems to me like Leno was the problem with his lousy primetime show.

    I'm so glad you have your own Snuggie now! Should save on a lot of arguments ;)

  13. I LOVE LOVE LOVE cold brew ice tea.
    We drink it year around here in Maine (well, maybe everyone doesn't but I do!)

    Great job on your running.

  14. Your fragments were very entertaining this week, Rebecca! I'm very impressed by the exercise; maybe some day...

    I am down to two Diet Cokes; not a fan of tea, though.

    I think your points about Conan and Jay are right on.

    Love The Bachelor, even though it's mostly ridiculous. We're all addicted over here!

    Have a great week!
