Friday Fragments


Friday Fragments is hosted by Half Past Kissin' Time for bloggers to post a list of short things on their minds that aren't really enough for a whole post. It's been quite a week so I have more than usual this week:

Politics

I am not big on politics so really got a kick out of the list about politics and politicians at Comedy Plus this week! Check it out for a laugh--it's so true!

4-Day Work Week

This was Gerard's first 4-day work week and what a productive day he had on Wednesday, his day off! See our Thankful Thursday post for details.

Dog License

The dog license renewals are supposed to go out in December but we never got ours so I finally called about it. Got the application and will get it in the mail tomorrow.

Returns

I got an offer in the mail for a small Heat Surge heater and thought I would be able to use it in our bedroom during the night. When I read the instructions though, it said it gets hot and you should not leave it unattended. If we are sleeping, we are not attentive so I called and made arrangements to return it for a full refund ($139).

NCAA Basketball

Sad, both our favorite teams lost in the first round, Ohio State and Duke! Duke's upset was even more unexpected than Ohio State's. Ohio State only lost by 1 point, so close. My only consolation is that others in our pool probably picked them too, but I had Duke going all the way to the final 4--very bad.

Pet Update

Abby finally got groomed this week and her fur is really soft again. Spunky Doodle's been sleeping next me through the whole night lately. Manny Boy will be going to the vet Monday to get his teeth cleaned. I'm told it is necessary to clean the tarter off and they can also get it from under the gums too which prevents disease. Do you get your cat's teeth cleaned?


Divergent

We are looking forward to seeing the movie "Divergent" on Monday when we are off. It takes both of us to get Manny Boy into the cat carrier!

Re-Decorating

After seeing episodes of "Sell This House" a desire is growing in me to do some painting and re-decorating in our house. The only reason I hesitate is that we have so much furniture to move that it is very difficult. That's why we still have our brown carpeting that is over 16 years old. It's still the carpet that was in the house when we first bought it!  There are a lot of things I'd like to change.

Books

We both read and liked The Deepest Secret by Carla Buckley. Share this:

You had quite a busy week! Sorry about your chosen basketball teams losing. Hope all goes well for Manny on Monday! Painting and redecorating are a pain in the patooty but I've always found it's worth it to have things fresh and new when it's done. If I was closer I'd come help you!

Do one room at a time. It makes it far easier that way. Remove everything from the room and work ceiling to floor. It really works well.

Have a fabulous weekend. Scritches to the babies. ☺

For years I put off painting the walls because it seemed like such an ordeal. One day, my hubby couldn't take the drabness anymore and painted. Why oh why did I wait so long to paint?! Do it, you'll be so happy.

Haha. Just figured out that the comment window pops up in a new window, though I didn't realize it.

Sorry about your teams.

You are so conscientious, Karen; that's a great quality.

We don't have our pets' teeth cleaned. I didn't realize it was so expensive; is there such a thing as pet health insurance?

Thanks for linking up! On Tuesday, I'll post about a special 300th FF post celebration. Those who link up for the next month will get five entries (each post) towards some great prizes. Stay tuned!

Have a great week.
