Mommy's Idea

Another Friday has rolled around, and I am so happy to see it! I'm not working overtime tonight, so I actually get a 'real' weekend. WOOT WOOT!
I didn't Frag last Friday and I have a lot to frag about today, so put on your fragging glasses and get ready!

I got a huge response to my last post, Blogging DON'Ts: What NOT to do if you want people to actually read your blog! 46 comments at last count....not that I count comments or anything...heh heh. I want to thank all of my friends who commented on the original question, whom I linked to in the post....I literally could not have done that post without you all, because I wanted it to be based on the opinion of several bloggers, not just little old me! And most of the commenters were very appreciative of the advice. So, thank you all!
That post was a little labor-intensive, so I am behind on commenting on your blogs, as well as replying to my comments & emails, so please bear with me while I attempt to catch up! xoxo

I recently discovered this amazing blog, Gerber Days. I can't believe I'd never visited her before! Among lots of awesomeness, on her sidebar she has a link to the instructions for making all-natural, all-purpose cleaner. I was really excited to make some of my own, so last weekend, I did just that, and I LOVE this stuff! I love lavender so I used that essential oil for scent. It smells so amazing that I literally walk around LOOKING for things to clean with this cleaner! It's super-cheap and works great, and is very easy to make. And totally awesome!

A nurse just came up and asked me: "What's the number to the ED (Emergency Department)?" and I said.............


Ha ha ha ha! I crack me up!

Tomorrow we're having a garage sale & car wash for the All*Star softball team! I think we'll have a good time with that. So come get your car washed!! Other than that, we plan on hanging by the pool during this long weekend, working on the yard & garden, and cooking out!

And now it's time for - - - -

I love Facebook. Yesterday I posted this:
Cyndy N*** E***: Im considering switching my kids' pediatrician. do you have a great one that you love? please tell me who you recommend.

Shortly thereafter, I had 10 comments, several highly recommending the same pediatrician/practice, and one of my high school friends works there! So, tomorrow I get to call and start the process of switching over! I seriously love Facebook!

I posted this the other day which got a lot of "Likes" and Comments:
Cyndy N*** E***: So we saw a dead deer on the side of the road and i told john "i hope you drive carefully when youre going home at night." his reply: "nope! i turn my headlights off, put on a blindfold, close my eyes, and steer with my feet."

Which will help you understand why I had posted THIS just the day before:
Cyndy N*** E***: Reason #523128 why I love John: he makes me laugh so hard my stomach hurts almost every day. =D

We have so much fun doing even the most mundane tasks like running errands & paying bills. We're like peas & carrots!

I posted a fun & yummy recipe over at Southern Loving this week! Check out Toad in the Hole.

If you have my button on your blog and I don't have yours, please let me know and I will be glad to add yours to my collection! Don't be shy; I love buttons!

Alright my friends, although I could probably frag some more, I think this post is quite long enough! I'll leave you to enjoy your Friday, and I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Don't foret to visit Half Past Kissin Time for more Friday Fragments!

LOL About 911...silly goose.

I want to start making my own cleaning products, too. Where do you buy the essential oils? I'm going to start with laundry detergent, I think.

Good luck at the car wash :)

Karen & Gerard Zemek said...

Love your husband's answer! Funny guy! You are funny too though with that 911 response! Ha, ha.

Cheryl said...

I followed your links and enjoyed your Blogging Don'ts. I was relieved to find that I don't do any of those things. I don't believe that someone following me requires I follow them. I DO check each of their blogs out to see if I'm interested. I go to great lengths to respond to comments. No-reply comments drives me nuts but I still track them down.

Kel said...

Happy Fraggin' Friday! :) Have a great weekend and I hope ya'll have fun at the carwash!!!!

Rebecca Jo said...

OK - I gotta go check out the cleaner ingredients. I make my own laundry detergent & LOVE that... Thanks for the heads up on that!

From Tracie said...

I love that you post some of your facebook moments...I might have to do that next week! Great ideas love to be stolen (or something like that-lol)

I will have to check out that cleaner post....sounds awesome!

I'm grabbing your button now! =)

Have a great weekend!

Megan said...

Happy Friday!

Mama Wheaton said...

Glad you have pool weather we still have rain and more rain! Nice funny by the guy!

Hi Cyndy
I enjoyed reading your Friday Fragment post today.
I hope your garage sale and car wash go well.
It's Jessica's birthday tomorrow so it's party time for us.

♥ Kathy said...

That was fun...I really enjoyed it :) The 911 and your fb status about the deer really cracked me up!

Kirby3131 said...

I love Facebook, too - I can ask a question and get an answer sometimes in moments. It's better than calling my mom LOL

Now I've got the car wash song in my head :)

I had never head of Toad in the Hole before. I would have never guessed that!

Have a great weekend!

Have a great weekend! I'm off to catch up on your blog.

Kat said...

Every time I tell my hubby to drive carefully he says, "Nope. I'm gonna take some risks." Sassy. ;)

Hope you had a great weekend!!!

Shawna said...

I love your sunshiney icons between "frags."

I love that you love doing mundane things with your hubby because you laugh so much together. THAT will keep you together, girl!

I loved other things too, but I my mommy brain is fried and I've forgotten already.

Love, love, love and a kiss or two just for you.

Shawna said...

Oh yes, one more thing. Thank you so much for turning me on to "Gerber Days." What a clever word play!!! I do love those ever so much. And I am enjoying Heather's blog. I've added it to my Favorites list for further perusal.
