Friday Fragments

Good morning, and time for another edition of Friday Fragments. You know, all those random thoughts that don't qualify for a post all on their own? It's a fantastic idea from Half Past Kissin' Time, and I love it!

Monday night I attending the Fire Dept.'s business meeting. See, they're running a bit short on people willing and able to balance a checkbook, and since I'm in the financial business, they asked me to do it. Hey, as long as I don't have to go into burning buildings, and can just do the one meeting a month . . . ok. So, this means that when life is in full swing, it's Mon - Fire Dept, Tue - Rescue Squad, Wed - Cub Scouts, Thur - Ruritan's, Fri - Drag Strip, and Sat - Dirt Track. And I've always wondered why Sunday is a day of rest!
Wednesday night we made houses at Cub Scouts. The kind with Graham crackers, lots of icing, and various assorted candy and cereal. The kids enjoyed it, it was a fantastic mess, and another night down!
Last night I went to my friend K's house and helped her clean. For some reason, cleaning other people's houses is fun. My own house, not so much! Still, I enjoyed spending time with her and the rugrats, and I felt like I got something accomplished. The other side is I slept really good, too! (Thanks, C., for Britney duty!)
This morning, C. and I stopped for nutrients. Ok, not really, we stopped at the Golden Arches, but isn't caffeine a nutrient? A woman had pulled in to drop someone off, and was partially blocking the drive thru exit. There was enough room, so I went around. She gave me this evil look, like I was getting in her way! C. commented on it, even. Why is it that some people are just so . . . mean? It's Christmas! Time to wave, smile, be friendly, good will towards men (and women!)
Tomorrow Super Ray should be coming to finally fix my computer! Yay! I can do very limited things, but the best part is that he's going to be bringing a new program I want, as well as my data from my old fried lap top. If all goes well, I should have the "Forgotten Carols" by tomorrow afternoon!!! YAY! I've missed them this season!
Also, tomorrow evening, friends of mine and I are planning on going to see the Living Nativity. I've heard great things about it, and I'm really excited to see it. Camels, anyone? Also, I hear tell that there's a house in Roanoke that has a musical light display so hopefully I can get a chance to see it this year!
Finally . . . don't shoot me, but I'm still trying to fit in a trip to go see Twilight. I've read the books and can't WAIT to see it!!!

Have a great weekend!

I agree that cleaning other people's house is way more fun than cleaning your own. But I am sure the thrill would wear off quickly! Happy Friday!
