This is my first time to play along with the very popular Friday Fragments hosted by Mrs 4444 For more Friday Fragments visit Mrs 4444 @ Half-Past Kissin Time

TGIF! I am so glad that it is Friday! It really has been a l-o-n-g week for me. I have been spending about 13 hours a day on my work, I get up at 5 a.m. every day, so that means I am getting about 5-6 hours of sleep each night. By the time Friday rolls around, I am just plain old pooped.

The lady that I take care of is fading away, fast. It is so sad- her and I have had a lot of fun, in the almost 6 years that I have known her. She taught me how to play Bridge, a game that I never thought I would ever be interested in, but now am totally addicted to. Her and her family have been very generous, and good to me-in appreciation for my taking good care of her. You cannot be with another person for that long a time and not become attached. I am sad to see her going away.

Only 13 shopping days left before Christmas! That means that tomorrow morning Georgie (from Decisionally Challenged) and myself will meet at 8:00a.m. to begin a day of "power shopping"! We always have a lot of fun. We will start at "Tar-jay" (Target), then go to the mall, and have lunch somewhere later. I will tell you this-you do not shop "with" Georgie-she is so fast, I usually just hand her the $$ and find me a place to sit while she whizzes through all the shops. She knows better anyway what to buy for teenagers and preteens.

My clothes dryer went out!! Thank goodness the hubby did not listen to me when I told him he should donate that old one to the Salvation Army! After we got the old one put back in the laundry area-I thanked him for not listening to me.

My cat Buster has dissappeared! We have not seen him in over a month now-I hope nothing bad happened to him, and he just ran away. His son "Rowdy" did the same thing, so I am thinkin he just went seeking greener pastures....... I do miss him a lot, tho.

I have been having so much fun following the Secret Santa trail. I love going to all the different blogs to see what everyone is receiving. It looks like everyone is receiving some really thoughtful and nice gifts. What a fun little pre-Christmas surprise to receive.

Next Friday Georgie will turn 39! I just don't seem to be able to wrap my brain around that, it seems like only yesterday we were bringing her home from the hospital, and argueing(sp?) over who was going to get to carry her from the car to the house! It was a cold day here in Oklahoma that day, I had her wrapped in about 13 blankets, you had to dig, just to find her in there. She was such a special gift, and she still is today.

Have a wonderful weekend all-I need to go get out my comfy, mall walkin', Christmas shoppin' shoes, and be ready for tomorrow!

Welcome to Friday Fragments.

I'm sure the family of the lady you are caring for truly appreciates all that you do, I can't imagine how sad that will be after you've been with her for the last 6 years.

It was so sweet to hear what you wrote about your daughter, what a special mom she has and it is so nice to see such a great relationship between mother and daughter.

Have fun shopping! (Or have fun watching Georgie shop!:) )

I think I need to go shopping with Georgie so I can get done faster... ;)

So sad about the lady you've been taking care of. After that length of time, there's no way you can't become 'attached'. ((HUGZ!))

I just about choked when I saw the countdown to Christmas on your sidebar as 11 days...GAH! I'm not ready!!

Love that your hubby didn't listen to you about the dryer and it worked in your favor! ;)

Sorry about your cat - we lost some barn cats that way...I think they ran away to greener pastures.

Happy FF late! :)

Just wanted to say thank you. I am keeping my lips sealed until tomorrow, in case there is some explanation that might be forthcoming. I appreciate your support on my blog.

Tomorrow though, I will not be ambiguous as to how I feel about it.

hey i thought you did a new post?

Mrs4444 said...

Sweet thoughts on Georgie, and here I thought she was your sister :)

Whew on the new/old dryer!

Still waiting to find out who my SS is. This is the second year it went this way, unfortunately. Think I'd better sit out next year (or wait to see what I get, heehee.)

I'm sure you've been a bright spot in your friend's life. May she pass peacefully....
