FF: You can't handle the fragments

Did you order the fragments? (me)

Your dog gone right I did!! (Mrs. 4444)

It's another wonderful week of Fragments to unload. It feels like that's all I have for this week. I would appreciate your prayers. We are apparently going down one of those roads where the 'frost heaving' is severe. But God is good, even during the trials and hears His children cry out to Him :-)

I feel absolutely worn out this week. We have had some struggles in our homeschool, which means remedial schooling, taking away my weekends, but I am thankful that the kids who are struggling didn't fight back. They accepted the repeat schooling and homework well. It also adds to my workload, which is hard.

Hubby's website is basically done, whew!! I will let you guys know when he officially 'goes public'. All that coding and fine tuning can be so draining.

 I started another round of college classes this semester and I am so thankful to be excited about them! My last class didn't end well, I barely squeaked by, and I am just glad I don't have to take it again :-(

~~~

There is a women's retreat this weekend. We are hitting a Bed and Breakfast in Willow, AK. I don't think I can  actually express how much I am looking forward to this break!!!! So I may not get you all visited till Sunday evening. But I will haunt you ;-)

We had moose in the yard last night!! My son was out snow blowing our fresh snow off the driveway when he looked to the end of his section and wondered why our fish sign was moving??? A yearling moose stepped out from behind the sign and my son quickly moved towards the deck. He then realized he left the blower running, so he ran back to shut it off. He busted in the door, hollered about moose in the yard, and the whole family was on the deck in moments taking pictures ;-)  My guess was right, though, when mama moose showed up with another baby. This family unit has been in the yard before :-) WARNING: I left the family audio in the video for family's sake, you can turn the audio down for your viewing pleasure ;-)

I really enjoy the movie A Few Good Men. When I say enjoy, I mean I have it memorized and will quote it whenever I can. It is the most quoted movie between my cousins in our email chatter. It seems like everything can get linked back to it...especially by Layni who is a lawyer ;-) So when I ran across this parody by Tim Hawkins, I knew exactly what my FF title would be!!





Do you have fragments to share? Hop over to Mrs. 4444 and unload them.

  1. Oh Kay, GOOD JOB on the Fragments title! You clever girl you.

    The family commentary was the absolute BEST part of the moose video!!!!!! So made me remember our kids voices while they were growing up and some "monumental" event occurred.

    1. Thanks!! I do love movie quotes :-) Were you able to hear hubby ask if he could step out long enough to draw them towards us, like baiting the mother moose? Good grief, goofball.

  6. Sending prayers.

    I missed my Women's Retreat this year. It was last weekend and we just had too much going on.

    Good luck with your classes!

    1. Thank you, I need them. The retreat was wonderful and I feel so refreshed. I wish I could bottle that sensation and send you some. I know you could use it!! I know you probably have no time, but our weekend focused on Ephesians. We were told to write down everything that God had given to us. So go chapter by chapter, and take note of each gift given to you. I can't tell you how much I needed it!!
