Fragments de Friday....

.....from the Casa de Dysfunction!
There you have it, my lame attempts at remembering High School Spanish.



So...what do I have to tell you about today?
As you may have guessed if you read Monday's post, this week has been stressful. Aside from the usual annoyances I have from other doofballs in my life, now I have Pretend Mom coming out of the woodwork and it's just worrisome. I have been biting my nails all week. I don't bite my nails!
I really don't think Christina will push the issue of getting involved in Andrew's life.....she has a short attention span and will probably move on to something else very soon. And we have plenty of legal recourse in keeping her away, including testimony from Andrew's therapist.
But my mind, it worries.......



Anyway. Fortunately, we have a happy distraction coming up -Elayna's softball tournaments! Next week will be a short work week and then our Softball Vacation will commence. We just learned that we will have at least one day with no games at all, so we will definitely find some fun things to do on that day. I think we'll have a great time. I just wish my oldest son could come along, but he has to work. I probably won't be online much at the end of the next week. Don't worry about me too much; I'll just be lounging on the beach.


I think a little R & R is just what I need!



Also, this weekend our town has a huge Independence Day celebration. We'll be helping out in a booth to raise money for the softball team part of the day, and enjoying ourselves the rest of the day! One of my friends is planning on meeting us there, and of course since it's such a small town we'll see tons of friends there. I recently read in the newspaper that our little town of approximately 7000 people attracts crowds topping 30,000 people for our fireworks display.
It rocks!




If I haven't been by your blog lately, it's just because I'm behind, as always usual. Both of my computers decided to take a poop at the same time, so it's hard to find time to get online. Don't take it personally! It seems like everyone is online less during the summer though. They're out having fun in the sun!
OK, I have done enough babbling for one Fragalicious Friday. Enought about me, tell me about you! What are your plans for this Independence Day weekend?

I hope you all have a wonderful Independence Day, a wonderful weekend altogether, and don't forget to visit Mrs 4444's for more Friday Fragments!

Good luck to Elayna at her tournament, hope you all have a great time.

I'll keep my fingers cross that every thing works out the best for Andrew...he shouldn't have to deal with that kind of drama.

Mama Wheaton said...

I think we will head into Boise and watch the fireworks, though just staying home and watching the neighborhood fireworks has its own appeal too! Enjoy the beach!

Karen in Texas said...

Sounds like a wonderful weekend and week ahead for you Cyndy. Good luck to Elayna's team. We're going to MIL's for a few days like usual.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I love your Owl header and background also. Aren't Owl's just the cutest! I actually used the same header when I first started. I still love it. Really like your blog and I am now your newest follower on here as well as Twitter. Enjoy your vacation!

Your little town sounds like it rocks out the 4th! I live in a SUPER tiny town too, we used to have a cool fireworks display when I was younger, now none at all :( Have a wonderful holiday weekend!!!

What is it with life? Everyone had a crappy week??? Your tournament weeks sound fun! And so does the 4th of July celebration! Enjoy!

I am ALWAYS behind on my blogs...between the blogs, the comments and the reading...*sigh* I try to keep up...I'm slow what can I say!

Unknown Mami said...

Yup, I think you are due for some R&R.

I'm wishing you and your family a Happy 4th!

When you get a chance will you do me a huge favor? If my feed is not updating in your reader or dashboard (it probably isn't) will you pop over and un-follow then re-follow? I'm lonely at WordPress and I don't know how else to solve the feed issue. Sorry to bug you.

Here's hoping Pretend Mom is true to form and soon finds another distraction.

Have a wonderful vacation :)

I just posted a (hopefully) solution to the "haven't caught up on my reader" problem. Since I can relate, I had an idea...

Max Evel said...

Happy 4th !

You don't have to tell me about being behind. I've been behind for months. I have stopped blogging, so I can get caught up with everyone else. I'm almost there. And it's a good thing cause I'm having blogging DT's!
Hope you having a great softball vacation!!!

Just Breathe said...

Peace would be nice for you. Enjoy the summer. Have a great 4th.

I really hope pretend Mom goes as fast as she came!
My grand daughter is in the middle of softball playoffs and for the first time I am missing most of her games..makes me so sad..
Hope you had a great 4th of July and isn't it nice to know you are not the only one who is so late!
