Its baaaacccckkkkk.... I didnt realize I havent done Friday Fragments in awhile... but the Thanksgiving posts of November put it on hold... & I never knew some of you would miss my "Spat of the week" so much :) ... I actually love that you all enjoy mine & Ricky's spats... its what we contribute to the world. So without further ado, let's Frag away again...
******So I am done with one person for Christmas shopping... one... I have (no joke) 32 more people on the list... I'm in trouble! Especially because there are only 2 weekends left... & in these 2 weekends, I have 3 Christmas parties, a wedding reception, a Christmas Program to sing in, the youth programs, a family get-together.... I am ready for my Christmas Nervous Breakdown. Tis the Season
& by the way, what do you get for your boss? The man who literally has everything & can buy whatever he wants? Seriously? I need thoughts....
Nope, my bicep tendon hasnt ruptured yet... but I was sitting with a youth kiddo in church Sunday & my shoulder POPPED so loud! She snapped her neck to look at me & said, "Did it just rupture?" ... I thought my whole arm ruptured with that noise, but alas... everything is still holding TIGHT...
******I did get to take a few hours & take a little girl's pictures for her first Christmas... is this the cutest little face? And its crazy because she looks just like her dad!.... He always eats the fur off Santa hats too...
I also had 2 little helpers taking these pictures :) My nieces were all about helping out & standing behind me with rattles & things to grab her attention. I told them I needed to hire them to go on shoots with me more often.
I never started watching X-Factor... am I missing out on something? I hear there are death threats happening. Wow... but I am giddy for more Stephen Tyler with the start of American Idol coming up....
& what's up with the rumor Ryan Seacrest could be taking over for Matt Lauer. Really? I dont see Ryan Seacrest sitting down with leaders of other countries. Unless he's giving them news they've been voted out of power.
******Spat of the Week: Rudolph the Red-Nose Reindeer .... oh, its Christmas time. The time of stress... I have so many spats to choose from here. But this was definitely the most entertaining... & the one I was right about. While we were out shopping last week for Christmas tree decorations, I started singing "Silver & Gold"... then asked Ricky, "Know who sings that?" - fyi, we always give pop quizzes on songs & singers. We'd be ready for Rock & Roll Jeopardy on VH1 at the drop of a hat! But Ricky said, "your dad sings it"... now, my dad does look like Cornelius from Rudolph & I was confused that he really didnt know this. Cue the spat... I told him its the snowman, aka Burl Ives that sings it & Ricky went on to do a horrible impression of Cornelius saying "I found silver & gold"... I reminded Ricky it was the worse part of the show as a child - the snowman singing this song that no one cared about. A kid doesnt care about anything unless you can bounce it, throw it, or eat it... & you cant do that for silver or gold. This argument went on until we could get home & solve it with the help of wonderful You-Tube... I just love being right... but Ricky still claims he was right since Cornelius DOES technically talk about silver & gold... no one can say we arent a stubborn folk.
See the resemblance?
I weigh myself once a week... & on the days that I weight, after I get that number, it feels like a 'free eat day' .. afterall, I have a full week until I have to weigh again. Probably defeats the purpose, but its the games I play with myself that keeps life fun.
Well, hope you all have a FANTASTIC FRIDAY!!!!
