My Last Fragments of 2010!

SHUSH, children! Can't you see Mama's trying to FRAG?!?!

I mentioned on Monday that it snowed here on Sunday morning.
Today, it was 75 degrees, sunny and beautiful! You gotta love Florida.

This week has been interesting. Andrew is still at his grandma's and Shelbie has been over at a friend's house since Monday night. So it's just been Tim and Elayna here. The youngest and the oldest. Tim's main goal in life is to torture Elayna.
Elayna's main defense is to scream this ear-piercing shriek.
Good times!

On a totally unrelated note, I've had a lot of headaches this week...

Update on the "I think my house is haunted" situation: We've had several more odd things happen. For example, the other night Elayna said the Christmas tree was moving. I told her the dog probably had bumped it, but she said that the dog was sleeping on the love seat.
I try to explain these things away or just kind of forget about them. But it's getting harder.
Last night, John and I were taking a shower, and we realized the bathroom door was open. I got out of the shower and closed it. A few minutes later, John looked over and saw that the door was open again. This is not the kind of door that can just come open, you have to physically pull it open.
It looks like this:

.....and it's on carpet, so it can't just slide around. It's never opened on its own before.
The kids were asleep, and I don't think the dogs could open it from the outside, but regardless, they weren't in the room (the door opens into our bedroom).
Explain that one away, please, because I can't. Although I really want to.

Do you have any New Years Eve Plans?
How about plans for 2011? Resolutions? Bloggy or otherwise?

We have no NYE plans. We rarely do anything big for New Years. We'll eat party food and stay up till midnight and say WOOHOO! And then go to bed. We're a wild bunch, I tell ya!
We're under a burn ban, so we can't do fireworks or even a bonfire.

I don't really do resolutions. The only plans I have for 2011 are to go back to work, but I will work fewer hours and with less stress. I'm not getting myself into that trap again.

And bloggy-wise, I plan to go to my first blog conference, and I am just going to continue working on building my blog. I have found some great new-to-me blogs recently, and I'm really just excited about taking this blog further.
Speaking of which, I have also started a new blog, which is private and by invitation only. If you are interested in an invitation, please let me know. It will be different there, more of a journal and more personal. Maybe less of the fun and more of the dysfunction? ;o)

I wish you a wonderful and prosperous New Year!
Happy 2011.

and don't forget to visit Mrs 4444s for more Friday Fragments.

Here's my song of the week:

headaches - unrelated note? - uh the notes coming from Elayna probably has something to do with it.
I did a post about resolutions earlier in the week - I agree with you.

I don't think I've ever done revolutions, I mean resolutions! But I have always made personal changes a few times a year. I write them down, I evaluate the plan, I do it or not LOL

I have decided to start a few photography challenges that last all year. That's not a resolution, it's a project :)

Amy said...

I'm thinking headaches and screaming children come together.

AS for your house- I don't know whether or not to say freaky or neat. LOL

Lightning Bug's Butt said...

Yeah, I've got a bunch of resolutions.

Spooky about your door!

I hope you invite me to the private blog.

Frag? Are you a gamer?

i agree with isleman that high pitched screaming will do a headache.. um badly. but i am sorry you get those. headaches are miserable.

i have no explanation for the door. i would love to say draft, but wow that would be some draft.

we are keeping our NYE thing to this house. just doing munchies and letting the kids stay up to watch the ball drop.

i am pretty new to blogging, not sure if i could keep up with a private blog group or not. what sort of journal would it be and what privacy settings would exist?

Kat said...

Oooo. I love that song! :)

Your new years eve plans are very similar to ours. And the kids always love it. :)

I hope you have a fabulous new year!

C said...

actually, hate is a strong word... i am scared shitless of your ghost but i love to hear details! does that make me a sick puppy? lmao

god bless you and yours this coming new year and hey-ho, i wanna follow your new blog, too...

Our NYE sounds just like yours! I do think it sounds like you have a visiter in your house. I don't usually do resolutions but I always want to eat better and get more exercise. Hopefully I can actually get around to that.
Happy New Year!
