It's Friday, which means Friday Fragments and Virtual Girls Night Out!
A Few Fragments:
Living in the country, you get a bit accustomed to driving down the middle of the road. A least in this town we do. The roads tend to be a bit narrow and curvy. Driving down the middle can be safer than hitting the shoulder and landing in the ditch! EXCEPT when coming around a curve!
I HATE when I come around a curve and nearly have a head on collision. I mean, whats wrong with these people. Haven't they EVER heard of common sense?
And what about those people that don't put their grocery cart back in a grocery corral when they are done with it? Those young kids and old men they hire as cart boys are dashing all around the parking lot, saving stray carts. Then they push 199 of them at once back to the store. I always return my cart, and usually an extra I see on the way. I have heard the argument that these cart boys/gals get paid to do that- yeah, minimum wage. Lets see YOU push a line of carts across a slushy and snowy parking lot in sub-zero temperatures! WOW! I've never been a cart boy/girl but geez....
And then there's the parents who let their kids take a bunch of books off the shelf in the library, then not put them back. OR WORSE, put them back wherever.............Puhleeeezeeee...people! I used to work at the library and it would to "P" me off to no end!
And finally, what about the people that won't hold a door for others? I mean, I hold the door for everyone- young, old, male, female. My kids are the same way- it's only polite! I've had MEN walk ahead of me and not hold the door when I've had a ton of stuff in my arms. What ever happened to kindness to others?
BTW Ladies- Guys seem to get a thrill when a woman holds the door for them.....
Those are just a few of the things festering my brain this week.
Just so you know, I have ANOTHER group on CafeMom- the owner had to give it up due to time restrictions. Check it out:
I Want To Make Money
Also, check out my Writings Blog. I have a few of my pieces there, and am working on getting the rest there. Some have been published, some not. I added 2 new pieces recently Check them out HERE
We dragged out all the Christmas stuff the other day. The tree is almost finished and most of my snowmen are set up. Started shopping Sunday and went out on Wednesday for a while. I'm getting there.
Of course, we haven't even started our Christmas baking.
Maybe next week.....
