Friday Fragments

Link up here if you've got bits and pieces to share with us today!

I'm afraid I don't have a lot to share this week, so I'll have to spare you, for once, and be quite brief, compared to my usual blather. That's probably closer to the real point of this anyway, though, right?

We're still not moved into the new place. Oh, a tenth, maybe more, but not much more. We've run out of boxes, don't have the water turned on there yet, and still need to rent a truck to do it. I was hoping that would all happen by the end of this week, but it's looking like not. Gah! So until then, we're stuck between two places, and let me tell you, I HATE IT!

You ever have a good friend, a really good friend, whose kid(s) you don't really like? I have that situation going on now. It's a little nerve-wracking, because of course you can't treat the child any differently (than one you like, lol), but it makes you want to spend less time with the friend, doesn't it? Advice??

Speaking of good friends, my girl Jenny From the Block's husband left the night before last for a yearlong deployment to Afghanistan - just as I'm in the process of moving away from her. Granted, I'll still be well within reach, but not right around the corner like I am now, if she needs me. I kind of feel like crap about that, because this is so rough on her, and it's only the beginning. :(

I came downstairs from up in my room this morning, to find Sophia, my 7yo (youngest), hiding under my desk and eating a part of a very dark chocolate bar and drinking a can of her daddy's Coke. Um, let's hope this isn't a gateway drug. What's next? Snorting Pixie Stix and chugging Red Bull?! :\

I can't remember if I shared with you last week that Chloë, my 10yo (oldest), had auditioned for a role in an episode of a TV show. We were supposed to hear by Wednesday (two days ago) whether she got the part, but when no word came, I assumed she didn't get it. Welp, just a little while ago, the casting director called me and asked for more information on her stats and availability. They haven't decided yet, and she's still in the running. Cross everything you can, please - she really wants this gig!!

I guess that's all the bits and pieces floating around in the ol' noggin at this point, so I'ma letcha go now. Hopefully I'll get around to actually reading some more FF posts this weekend for once, since we are in moving limbo! Cheers and happy weekend, y'all.
