Friday Fragments

 Mommy's Idea

~ I had good, no, GREAT intentions of blogging every day this week.  I also had good intentions of getting caught up with everybody in the blogworld.  But, instead, I was L-A-Z-Y this week.  Honestly, I had a real hard time getting out of bed this week.  I don't know what it is, but I'm just soooo tired. 

~  Ally did get to the groomer yesterday.  Here's a picture to prove she really is a schnauzer and not a miniature sheepdog:
~  So, what did I do this week?  I finished the 2nd book in The Hunger Games Trilogy (and started the 3rd book).  I let my feelings known on a retail development near our house at a neighborhood meeting the Small Town had. (I know it won't change anything, but they know how I feel, along with most of the people at the meeting.)  I painted the kitchen area...except for around the countertops since we're going to tile that area.  I made it to daily mass on Wednesday 'cause that was the day Pepper got me up in time.  I even made it to Curves a couple of times this week.  As for the rest of time...I have NO CLUE what I did.  I didn't watch any movies, didn't watch much tv, didn't do any yard work (even though it was beautiful this week!), did no cooking (since CH was in DC this week for work), and did very little cleaning.  I sure could use another week off to get those things done!

~  I met some friends for trivia Wed. night.  We had a good time, and did pretty well.  The questions seemed fairly easy this time, but we still ended up with no points at the end of the night.  We "go big or go home" for the last question, which is "Jeopardy-style":  you decide how many points to wager.  Even if we had gotten the last question right, we still would've lost by 50 points. 

~ The big excitement around here is that Peyton Manning visited the Titans.  Honestly, if they would sign him, it would do amazing things for the franchise.  He seems like such a good guy, and Tennesseans love him  (well, most do, anyway!).  Not a whole lot of people around here (that I know of) care for the Titans, so now's the chance to get the state behind the franchise!

~ I've given up on snow for this year, and decided I'd better embrace Spring.  Time to change the banner and the background!

  2. I know just where you're coming from with the blogging intentions. When my office set me up with a laptop here at Assisi House, I had the best intentions in the world. However, the results have been sparse. I keep telling myself I'll improve when I can get back to work.

  6. We've been unusually tired here as well. I think it's to due to the weather- it has been so strange.

    Here in New York we are used to major snow. We have had hardly any and the weather has been G-R-E-A-T!

    Your dog looks wonderful with the grooming!

    I'm visiting from Friday Fragments.

    Hope you have a fabtastic weekend!

  7. The Hunger Games is a great set of books! They are well worth taking the time to read (even at the cost of some blogging)

  8. I've been having trouble making myself sit down and write something lately as well. I don't know why...maybe it's spring fever?

    Are you enjoying the Hunger Games books? I loved them - actually, our entire family has read them and can't wait to see the movie!

  9. I don't do well in trivia games ... I always know the answers, but I just can't think of them in time. ha!

    I remember when I'd have a week off from work ... I'd either do all my chores and then wish for another week off to rest up, or I'd take it easy and then wish for another week off to get my chores done.

    Everyone I know is reading The Hunger Games books ... I will have to go research them. I'm always looking for good books to read.
