Friday Fragments {Off all week}

Mommy's Idea

I've been off work all week. Well, almost all week. I worked a few hours on Monday. The toddler came down with a virus. It's been a long week! So, I'm joining Mrs. 4444 for Friday Fragments because I have had so much going on and yet not much going on and I need some blog direction these days! lol

Tuesday was rough. I hate seeing the "baby" sick like this. HE can't eat much of anything, and yesterday I let him nourish his soul with lots of ice cream. Guilty mommy, happy toddler!


Wednesday was my 1 week cleanse marker. This was my full 1st full week on the Quantum Wellness 21 day cleanse. It's going really well. I've noticed a lot of physical improvements (hair, skin, eyes) already. As of today I am down to 176...on 7/1 I was at 182.2! I'm feeling more "regular" and have more energy and less anxiety. This is really working!


Thursday was our last day of couples counceling. I'm not sure how I feel about that. I'm not so confident that we are ready to be up to our own devices just yet, but I am hopig we will work through this. I'm not seeing the consistant changes that I had hoped to see, and I am trying to accept that my hubs is who he is, and that I have to learn to live with a person whos personality clashes with mine. A lot. That's about all I am ready to share about that whole experience.


Friday (today), my 8 y/o asked to stay home today. He said he had a headache. I hope he's not coming down with the virus. Seems to me he scammed me for a day off at home. He's asking to play on a video game because they are having a special party online today, and I now think "Is this why he wanted to stay home?" *Ugh* Scammed!


I lost a "friend" yesterday. It wasn't the kind of friend I spent much time w/in real life. She was a friend on a moms social networking site as well as a Facebook friend. Seems we had some gossip drama between her hair stylist and myself and as many times as I have offered her my forgiveness for the many wrongs she's given me...she apparently does not forgive as easily.

Oddly enough I'm not real upset about this. I'm really all about eliminating the drama. She engaged in trash talking others and well, it's just too much work for me to remember who knows what these days. It's uncomfortable to be friends with someone who cuts other people down. I'm sure she has mutual friends believeing I did or said some awful thing, but I didn't and I don't really feel like I need to prove myself to anyone. If others decide to not be friends with me...well, I call that the "true friendship test" and if they are so quick to kick me to the curb over one other persons words then I really don't need them in my life either.
2 sides to every story.

Okay...that wasn't the fragment that I had intended for it to be.


A big thanks to Half-Past Kissin' Time for hosting todays "Friday Fragments!"

  1. Hope your bebe stays well, it bites when they are sick.

    as for the 'friend' - well, I've found that when someone engages in trash-talking EVERYone, the people that (s)he's trash talking TO already know it, so their words are taken with a healthy dose of salt!

  2. I have sooooo been known to cut the drama for the sake of a sense of normalcy in life. Life is too short to get caught up in petty crap.

  3. I used to want to stay home because Happy Days and Laverne and Shirley were on at noon on weekdays. Of course I rarely got to stay home LOL

    I've had to cut people out of my life that were just drama makers. I realized I was going to go to an early grave if they remained in my life.

  4. I'm curious about the cleans thing. Can you recommend something simple for me to read on line?

    Hope you littlest guy is feeling better now :)

    When our kids were in gradeschool through middle and stayed home from school, our rule is no TV/screens of any kind until 3pm. That pretty much cut the "sick" days down :)

    I was going to say that if you had to forgive that friend more than a few times, you are probably better off, but then you said it for me!

    I'm sorry you're not seeing the result you'd hope for after counseling. Have a good week.
