Friday Fragments--Frazzled (life, Purim)

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 to give Mrs. 4444 a break for the summer. Here we go:


I'm feeling somewhat frazzled, busy week and not much time to blog. It seems there is so little free time to blog. Our weekends have been busy with things going on and normal stuff we need to do. We got our cell phone replaced, but also got an extra one which we had to return. I'm hoping we will get a credit for the shipping cost, but I won't be surprised if we don't.

Sunday: I let the kids draw on the whiteboard to illustrate the lesson as I taught about Elijah being fed by ravens and the widow sharing her last meal with him that God kept replenishing. I was going to take a picture of it but forgot.

Monday: I forgot my key card to get into work so had to get a visitor's tag. I hate when I forget it--just wasn't ready for another work week. Finally got the new cell phone activated when when George from tech support fixed the serial number--their records didn't match the phone they sent to us. Great Call hasn't been so great for us lately. Hubby went to his regular work place and then was told to go to the new place where they are moving to instead.

Tuesday: Got to catch up on some taped episodes of Cedar Cove.

Wednesday:  Rush at end of the day to get out on time, the rushed off to Bible study at church.  No TV time or blogging time.  Felt bad I didn't get to join in the note card party, but just didn't have time to get it together.  Had to enjoy the beautiful weather outside Saturday.

Thursday: Typed up some fragments but feeling like I just want to kick back and watch The Biggest Loser that I taped and some of the Red Sox game.  Doing the Beth Moore Bible study on David takes me longer in the morning so have much less time to visit other blogs, but am really enjoying this study.

Friday:  Time to apply Revolution to our pets and do the laundry.  Rush, rush and then off to work.

Sunday School

Found a video about Queen Esther that I might use in my Sunday School class this week, "Queen Esther Saves The Day" on Jewish TV Network. Also found out what a gragger is. It's a noisemaker kids twirl when Haman's name is mentioned during the reading of the Book of Esther for the Purim celebration.  I think it might be fun to give the kids some noisemakers and have them hiss, boo and make noise whenever I mention Haman when I tell them the story.  Yup, think that's what I'll do.

Sounds like a crazy week. I don't like it when I just feel like I'm rushing and there is no time for me to just sit and relax. I had a week like that too.

Let's hope next week is better!

I remember those weeks. I'm sure glad they rarely happen anymore. Yes I am.

Have a terrific day and I hope you and hubby can get some much needed rest this weekend. :)

I don't like frazzled weeks! This week I have lots to do but since I'm sick, I haven't done anything which is actually nice but I'll pay for it next week I'm sure. You reminded me I haven't seen the last 4 episodes of Cedar Cove so will need to watch them on the internet. I should've been doing that this week instead of sleeping!

I completely understand and am glad you're out there living life. Your teacher instincts are so great, Karen; I'm glad you're back at that, too. Thanks for linking up. Have a great weekend!
