Friday Fragments

Good morning, and Happy Friday! That means it's time for another Friday Fragments.
It's been a slow week here. I love January and February, because life slows way down. Racing season gets back underway in March, but for now, I have time to clean house, do laundry, that sort of thing. Saturday's are filling up, but it's with things I want to do, not what I have to do. In fact, I understand that there is a tubing trip in my near future??
I went back on my diet/exercise plan this week. I did it previously, and got down to a nice size, but then transferred to the Big City where I had the option of Golden Arches for meals, and everything went to heck in a handbasket, KWIM? So, no more Mickey D's, no more soda, no more refined sugar, and you know what? I've lost 4 lbs in just a week! We have a program here at work that encourages healthy living through cheaper insurance premiums, and dang it, I'm going to meet those goals. To get to my original goals, I have 100 lbs to go!! Glad I have a puppy who loves to go for walks/runs, gives me some encouragement to get off my tail.
I'm so aggravated with the Wednesday morning "Prayer Breakfast" drivers. Look, just because you are retired and have no where to go, doesn't mean that I also want to enjoy the 20 mph drive through the 55 mph zone. Please, pull over!!!
Cindy came by and let Britney out for me this week. I think Britney was more excited to see her than she is when I come home! That's because C. will let the mutt give her kisses and I do NOT want to be licked on the face. And Cindy? You can borrow Britney any time you want . . .
I heard a call get toned out this week for "Congestion". Seriously? Congestion is now a reason for an ambulance ride to the hospital?? Chest Pain, Car Wrecks, Fires, yes, but congestion? I have to admit, I would really resent getting up at 3a for that!
I started a new blog. This one is mainly for me, but any feedback and support I can get, I'll take.
See, slow week. But, feel free to play along with Half-Past Kissin' Time.

Good job on behaving yourself in the eating dept! At least one of us is! I love, love, love your new look in here; I had a very hard time reading the pink on purple (or whatever it was). It's like a breath of fresh air in here!:)
