Friday Fragments - Life in the Fast Lane, or not

Friday Fragments?

Welcome to another edition of Friday Fragments, the brainchild of the lovely lady Mrs.4444. Make sure you visit her place and give some comment love.

So it's Friday, the end of the first REAL week of summer here in one of the coolest and wettest summers in recent memory. Because my long term memory is fading.

Let's take this opportunity to create some shorter term memories then...

-I woke up with this freakish need to vacuum. Freakish, because I never vacuum. Seriously, I hate it. I do it so infrequently that it's almost akin to foreplay for the husband. And yes, he is a neat freak. Perhaps this is the secret to a long, loving relationship.

I suppose I'm taking another look at my SAHMness, and embracing it in ways I haven't in the past.

-I'm apparently obsessive about cleaning my glasses. I do it about 50 times a day. No wonder they're so scratched up. I suppose it's better than biting my nails, though.... what nails?

-Is it wrong that I am ecstatic about summer time TV? Not only did we just finish watching So You Think You Can Dance, US version, but the Canadian season just started this week.

But the pi├Ęce de resistance?

Mad Men. Third Season. Starts Sunday.

Drooling. Get an old lady a bib.

-I shopped around at the various Costco's and picked up Wii Resort Sports for the kids. So apparently I am the Best. Mom. Ever. I kinda like the sound of that.

Hmmm...Steve is a bit of a neat freak, too. Perhaps I will "set the mood" over the weekend by getting out the vacuum myself! No, wait. Never mind, I don't need sex THAT bad, ever. : )

Kat said...

We have yet to embark into the world of video games. I'm holding off as long as I can. ;)

Happy Friday!

MrsSki said...

Mr. Ski was telling me about the Wii'll have to tell us if they love love love it!

Unfortunately I bite my nails, and my darling husband hates it! I just can't stop...and even if I do take a break from biting my nails inevitably one will break or chip and then I end up gnawing all of them off. It's very counter-productive!

I get the urge to clean but it's at the most inopportune when I'm on my commute to work and get an urge to scrub the bathroom floors. You'd think I'd still have this urge once I got home...NOPE! The urge to clean doesn't resurface until I'm unavailable to clean. haha!

Great fragments this week!

I haven't heard of the Wii Resort, but we do Wii Fit.

To SYTYCD all I have to say it Woot Woot!!!! Season 6 in September. :o)

Happy FF! Mine is up too. :o)

Caution Flag said...

We just got Wii Resort, too. Thumbs up here. Hope your vacuuming compulsion is over now... and for a long time to come.

Heidi said...

I'm with you on the weather, vacuuming and cleaning my glasses.
OOH, what's this Wii Resort game? I'll have to check it out.

mub said...

I couldn't really get into Mad Men. I love the concept and I think the sets and wardrobes are fantastic... but everything else I was a little meh over.

I wash my glasses all the time too, it's probably a sickness!

Mrs4444 said...

Enjoyed your fragments, Karen; especially the foreplay one, of course-brilliant!

I never vacuum (or dust), I and bite my nails, too :( No wonder I like you! :)

Huckdoll said...

Oooh, Wii Resorts looks so fun - I want it!

I supposed I should love SYTYCD since dancing is my favorite, but I've never once caught it - not the US or Canadian versions. Maybe next time :)

Melisa with one S said...

I must be the only person on earth who hasn't seen Mad Men, and everyone raves about it. Methinks I'll be setting the DVR tonight...

Tooj said...

Wii resort sports you say? I'll have to look into that. I think I want that title too.
