Friday Fragments - What Have I Gotten Myself Into?

Joining with Mrs. 4444 for the weekly emptying of all minds of fragments.

Half-Past Kissin' Time

I just signed up Dan and I for the 5K Turkey Trot in town. Not that I plan on running (since I've never run and have no way to get ready in two weeks to do it). But I know I can walk it and I had said earlier in the year that I wanted to do a 5K. Now the weather needs to cooperate and not be too cold or rainy.

We picked out a new Christmas tree on Sunday but didn't buy it. We had to go home and measure to see if we could get the taller tree. Which we can't. So now we have to go back and actually pay and pick up the tree. We are being rebels and going with all white lights (something I've never done in my entire life). 

Whitney had an interview for an internship this spring and she got it. So she will be working downtown at a pretty busy advertising/marketing firm and get college credit for it. She will still work some at her regular job at school too. She is up for a promotion to a special team at the visitor center. 

Stupid criminal is another person misusing 911. He kept calling to report domestic disturbance because his neighbors wouldn't drink with him. The police picked him up and made sure no one was drinking with him anymore.

A week of no wine and counting calories is working. I've lost three pounds and just have a couple more to go. Thank goodness because this is getting old quickly.

My Pandora radio station has been playing a lot of different music lately. I'm not sure if I liked something that makes it think I like this stuff or what, but it has been interesting. Certainly nothing that the radio would play.


  1. Good luck with the 5K. That will be an achievement! I like the all white lights, course I can never get all of ours to blink so we end up with some flashing and some not -- oh well, it's still pretty!

  2. I have a small tree that came with prelit white lights. I liked it. This year I set it up but only half the lights were working. I hope you have good luck with a good set of lights on your tree.

  3. That's funny, I've never done colored lights. Ha.
    Way to go Whitney!
    Funny how when you decide you can't have something, you want it more. Ha. Too bad wine doesn't come in diet. Ha.

  4. We'll compare notes on the 5K : ) We always do white lights. We had colored when I was growing up, but hubs and I have always had white. Congrats to your daughter!

  5. I like color lights but it depends on what you are putting the lights on. If I somehow found myself in a 5K, I would certainly be walking. I used to listen to Pandora often but not much anymore.

  6. I think once a Christmas tree is decorated it's beautiful. Period. But I'll bet all white lights will make it even more beautiful.

    Have fun on the walk!

    Way to g on the lbs. lost. When I started dieting, I looked up the calories and wouldn't drink over 100 calories in alcohol. That's not much!

  7. We put up a small artificial tree (I am terribly allergic to pine and balsam:()with all white lights.
    Good luck with the walking, I could use one of those too.
    Have a blessed weekend!
