Following the Crowd - Friday Fragments
I am still learning this blogging stuff but one great idea that I am following along with is Mrs. 4444's Friday Fragments. You can see the original Friday Fragmenter over at http://www.halfpastkissintime.com. Her post is always one of the highlights of my Fridays.
I had my second "me" event of the week last night. A dinner out and a play with a girlfriend. We have season tickets and have been going to these plays on and off for the past 14 years. Portsmouth NH is a great little city when it comes to the arts. If you are ever in the area, I suggest that you check out the Seacoast Rep. Usually, the dinner out is secondary to the fun time my friend and I have catching up. Last night, however, the meal was outstanding. We both had Steak Pizzaiola and it was one of the best meals I have had in a long long time. We both wanted to lick our plates it was so good. Luckily for the rest of the restaurant -goers, we managed to restrain ourselves. So, if you are in Portsmouth and do check out the Seacoast Rep, consider trying Rosa's Restaurant before or after the show.
My 14 year old son read my blog and took offense at my comment that sometimes he is 14 going on 4. I tried to explain poetic license and all that. He didn't buy it. You will note that I didn't change it. He wasn't horrified by the rest of it which is surprising
My son is taking finals and is down to two more days of school. His freshman year is almost over. How could a student who was spot on the rest of the school year be so forgetful this last week? I was a proud mama a few days ago when he came home with two academic awards - including one for academic excellence in Pre-Calculus. Not bad for a freshman in a class of juniors and seniors! He just gave us information about a program where he would spend his senior year away at Clarkson University in New York. I am sure he will be ready to go away to school then. I am just not sure I will be ready to let him go!
Another rainy day in Maine. I am so tired of this. I am participating in the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life tonight and tomorrow. I hope the rain lessens up for that. In a moment of insanity, I signed up for the 6:00-8:00 am shift tomorrow morning. I have to drive 45 minutes to get there too! I am soooo not a morning person. What was I thinking?
The next time you are watching a Cialis ad check out the chemical name. The first 4 letter are TADA. I think that should have been the name of the drug. Just think of the ad possibilities!
63 days until vacation - not that I am counting.
Here's to a great Friday!
