Friday Fragments/Freewrites 8.7.09











It's so nice to be back to the blogging routine! It's Friday and that means it's time for Friday Fragments/Freewrites.



~ We're going camping at the beach this weekend! We've been wanting to do this all summer and we're finally going. The only negative is that Tim has to work and can't go. I am SO bummed that he will miss out!
~ Last week we met with an in-home child care provider. We were looking for after-school care for Andrew & Elayna so that I can get more than 3-4 hours of sleep this coming school year. My friend Heather also came, she was looking for child care for her daughter Savanna. We were SO impressed with this provider! She has been in child care for over 15 years, has education in Special Needs children, and seems very committed to her work. She is also a vegetarian and serves only vegetarian food. The kids will be exposed to a different culture and I'm really excited about that. I think she'll be particularly good for Andrew. Elayna came with us to meet her and is very excited about going there after school.

~ Tonight we are going yet again to the Free Friday Concert, and the performer is Caitlin Eadie. She is a young country singer who grew up near our town, and she has opened for Tim McGraw and Lynyrd Skynyrd, among others! I think it's going to be a great show.

~ This week I discovered that one of the bloggers I follow, lives in my town! It's Manic Mother, and her sweet son Ezra has cancer. Their buttons are in my sidebar.
I am so excited to find her. Hopefully we will get to meet up at some point. I still have NEVER met another blogger friend in person! Is there anyone else reading who lives in or near Gainesville, Florida? (I think it's pretty obvious that I live near there, by now.)

~ The foster mama and her kittens got spayed/neutered on Wednesday and will be at Petsmart all weekend. One of my nurse friends is probably going to adopt the black & white girl. The mama is a sweet, pretty calico and her two boy kittens are orange. Hopefully they will find good homes this weekend!

~ This just made me laugh, so I had to share it with y'all! It actually looks just like our orange foster kittens.




Hope you all have a great weekend!

That is so cool that a bloggy friend lives in your town. I have a few bloggy friends in my area, and also a low in the South in general. No plans to meet yet, though. Let us know if you meet. That would be a fun post to read.

Have fun at your meet! I know there are tons of bloggers in Austin, but I still haven't met any of them. Very sad. :(

And the pic? AWESOME!

I have never met a "real" blogger, and sometimes think Iam the only blogger in Idaho! i am not , but-you know. I can't wait to meet some of the people I have grown to know and love online.

Meeting blogging friends is FUN. In fact, if BlogHer was nothing but that, I would still go!

Finding good daycare is no small feat-I'm glad for you ALL! :)

Have a terrific weekend!

I won't be back on a blogging routine until school starts up again.....

Get thee more sleep! It'll be worth it!

Helene said...

The quote by Steve Martin that you have at the top of your blog cracked me up!!!

I hope you'll get to meet your bloggy friend!! I just recently met one of mine in person (our kids had a playdate) and it was awesome!!!!
