Random Friday Fragments


These could also double as Random Tuesday Thoughts, because they are totally random, except, well, it's Friday. So you get Fragments.

~ I took the foster kittens to the UF Vet Clinic to get spayed/neutered yesterday. When I picked them up, I had to take the Littles in with me (that's what we call Andrew and Elayna). The place I take fosters to is the surgical area, and I'm sure they prefer that kids don't go back there, but I had no choice. So I made it out like a field trip for them. Elayna currently says she wants to be a veterinarian when she grows up (and I SOOO would love it if she stayed on that course!), so I told her that it was the place she'd learn to be a vet, if she goes to the UF. They got to see the skeletons of a monkey, ostrich, & iguana. They also got to see 2 surgeries in progress, although they couldn't see the animal, just the vet's hands, instruments, etc. They did great, touched nothing, and had fun! And the kittens did very well with the surgeries. They will go to Petsmart for potential adoption this weekend, so at the end of the weekend we could bring home anywhere from 0-5 kitties!

~ I'm already really tired of reading about the Jon & Kate + 8 cheating scandal. But I just have to give my .02. The comments about her deserving it, and it being understandable because she's such a bitch? Piss.Me.OFF. Yes, she is most definitely a bitch. But cheating is not justifiable. If he was so miserable, he should've LEFT. Cheating is the cowardly act of a gutless liar.


~ I'm also tired of the Swine Flu hysteria. My friend Tonjia at One Step Forward said it best. I hate how people spread panic over illnesses that are not anything to freak out over. And I just love this pic from A Thorn Among Roses.





~ My friend Rocksee over At the Porch Swing is having a contest for a very good cause. Check it out!



~ I have 99 followers. 99, people! Who's going to be #100? Come on, give me that silly little thrill. lol!

~ We are going on a much-needed mini-vacation this weekend. It was planned at the last minute when we found out that this event was taking place at our favorite place in the world, St. Augustine. We rushed around and made plans. Happy Early Birthday to me! I can't wait to eat some crawfish, get my drinks on, and watch some awesome bands perform! I'm so excited I can hardly stand it!!!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend, too!

I adore your two cents and thought the exact same thing. It is bad enough when women blame themselves now everyone else is jumping in too. But for me being stressed and bitchy while raising a nest of children is a less offense than being unfaithful to your life partner..but that's just me. Nothing says Happy Mother's Day like seeing pics of your spouse at a club with his 23 year old "friend"!

I agree with you on cheating Cyndy. If you don't love somebody anymore just leave. There's no excuse for cheating.

April said...

Cheating on someone you, supposedly, love destroys families FOREVER! He REALLY messed up, in my opinion! Have lots of fun on your trip to St. Augustine! Enjoy your Mother's Day!

Stopping by from SITs.

I agree with you on the Jon and Kate thing. No one deserves to be cheated on. I admit that I'm not a fan of Kate. She's too mean for my liking BUT she does not deserve to be cheated on.

shopannies said...

I take it you don't like Kate LOL

Astaryth said...

Which PetSmart are the kittens going to be at? Just curious because I live not horribly far from UF and I've been thinking about getting a kitten this spring.....

I am Harriet said...

Jon is a wimp and an idiot for letting his picture get taken. Why wasn't he with his family? Who has time for that?

Kate needs to be a controlling bit$% with 8 kids. We would all probably be just like her if we had 8 kids those ages.

Juls said...

I agree with you on the Jon & Kate thing... 100 percent.

Swine flu--I'm sick of the hysteria too...

I was going to click to be your 100th follower, but someone(s) beat me to it. So I'll be number 102

Angie said...

Congratulations on 100 followers. I just hit 100 on my blog last night, although I sort of fudged it because I called up a relative and said, "Please become a follower, I need to hit 100 today."

Heather @ Sugar N Spice Mostly Nice said...

I couldn't of summed up John and Kate any better!

I always wanted to be a veterinarian growing up. Maybe that's why we have 3 boys, 2 huge dogs and 2 cats crammed in a 3 bedroom house!

Have a great trip!!

Momo Fali said...

I don't think Kate is a bitch. I think you would have to be like her to keep any sense of order in that house!

Twisted Fencepost said...

A birthday, Mother's Day and a mini vacation?! You got it made!!
Have fun!!!

Jen - Queen of Poo said...

Shoot. I wish I could be 100, but I'm already following you. :-) Have a great mini-vacation!

Swirl Girl said...

I totally agree about cheating being an act of cowardice.

If he really did it - he's stupid as well as a coward.

Indy said...

I would cheat on Kate if she was my wife. She is sooooo mean. Have fun this weekend!

Mrsbear said...

Kate grates on my nerves like nobody's business, but she definitely does not deserve to be cheated on. She's the mother to his babies and the woman he promised to spend his life with...coward indeed, not to mention selfish and stupid for being out there knowing what it would do to his family. Jerk...

Have a super mini-vacation.

Semi-Slacker Mom said...

I fragmented about the J&K+8 drama too. I totally agree with you. I don't care how much of a B she is, nobody deserves a cheater!

And I think the swine flu panic is just a way for the Tamaflu company to make a ton of $$$.

Mrs4444 said...

Aw, so it's true then? The affair? Jeez, whenever did he find the time?! That's sad.

Good job on making the vet visit a "teachable moment."

You, too, on the good weekend thing! :) I'll double-check that I'm following you, but I'm pretty sure I already am :)

Momisodes said...

I've been so out of touch, I had no idea about the Jon and Kate thing!

Sounds like the kids had a great time and handled it all very well :)

Hope you're having a lovely birthday weekend!
