Friday Fragments

Friday Fragments is brought to you by Mrs4444!

Mommy's Idea

Using remote access to work on my PC when I'm not in my office sucks.

I found myself getting impatient with the interwebs yesterday when it took more than 5 seconds to open a page. Remember back in the day when the interwebs were shiny and new and it took upwards of 30 seconds to open anything? And that was on a good page! I'm so impatient with technology now.

I wonder what our kids are going to grow up like with all of this access to computers and information? I think about how much more I know about how to use technology than my parents and grandparents, and I dread the day when Toddler C's tech skills dwarf my own. (not that being a week away from 75 has stopped my grandma from emailing or texting! she sure knows how to forward those chain letters!)

I hate the NBA. I find it to be the most boring sport around (golf and nascar don't count as sports in my book.). However, I found myself strangely drawn to the LeBron James saga. I was hoping he would stay in Cleveland because I'd like to think that loyalty is still a factor, but the fact that he passed up so much $$ to go play with his friends and have a better shot at winning is kind of nice to see, too. For some reason I think that sounds weird coming from a Yankee fan.

Speaking of the Yankees, they are kicking some ass in the AL East! I can't wait for October.

One week from today I'll be on my way to Jersey! Can't wait for some real pizza and looking forward to introducing my friend to the city that never sleeps.

We're out of spray-on sunscreen so we had to break out the slimy stuff for Charlie this morning. The smell of it always makes me feel like I should be heading to the beach. Sad to live in Ohio :(

Saw an ad for a slap bracelet in the Toys R' Us coupon book we got. I thought those were forever banned!

We're going out to look at some houses and condos on Tuesday. I think seeing what's actually out there will make me feel less anxious about selling our house and buying another one. I just have to keep the idea of a non-suburban existence in my mind :)

Office Quote of The Week!

This one is from Michael, selected in honor of the pint of Ben & Jerry's Phish Food in my freezer from which I will be serving myself a Friday treat tonight.

"I think if I was allergic to dairy I'd kill myself."


  1. ROFL at that last quote. My husband is "allergic" to it, yet insists on eating CHEESE with everything. Haha.

    Great post, happy FF.

  2. It is crazy to think of all that our kids have available. Sam has worked our PC since he was 3. I guess it's mostly great...or at least, I hope so! :o)

    That quote is awesome!!

  3. My kids are about 1,000 times more tech savvy. But's that the ONLY thing they can beat me at! ;)

    I love the smell of Coppertone - take sme to the beach every time!

    Enjoy your pint tonight!

  4. I love that Office quote. I just hope my sweet Tyler never feels that way!

  5. I LOVE the office~ that quote is so funny!

    I love basketball, I know your not a huge fan...but how could LeBron leave Cleveland, they were his starting team and they brought him to where he is today. I am really disappointed he did not stay with them, I mean come on, he wants to beat Kobe that bad??? btw: I love Kobe, too!

  6. I think I'd kill myself if there was no such thing as Lactaid. I love me some MILK, but it does NOT love me!

    Someone else (wish i could remember who, but I asked her to link it up for SS) wrote about technology changing so fast and how we can't even monitor our kids anymore because of their phones, Ipod touches, etc. So glad my kids are older!!

    Happy House Hunting!! :)

  8. I have a 2 year old MAC and I have a 5 year old dinosaur of a PC in the other room. It's an eternity for anything to load on that PC - I know what you mean.
